I guess that by data programs you mean MS Excell and MS Access and other programs like them. Right ? And Yes, you are right about them, But I think that also some kind of Visual Basic or something like it might also be needed (?).

As to gap ranges and range of combinations I have not studied any MMs gaps, so I don't know which gaps and ranges you mean, I see gaps and ranges in many ways.

But from what I see, you are very good in your observations, maybe with a few more filters you can reduce the combos even some more.

You are also right about there being very little or no support for old programming languages.

There are some freeware and shareware programs, some use  versions of basic similar to old basics like GWBasic and QuickBasic others more like Visual Basic and others more "Objet Oriented" whatever that might be, some others compile C and or produce C code, there is even a Fortran program, there are also some programs for making games, but I don't see why they also can't make non-game applications (?), it would be hard to decide which of them to try to learn (?), here there is a list of some of them:

B++ Builder, B++ Improved, Basic4GL, BBC, BCET, BCX, Brutus (What a name), DarkBasic, Dialect, DXCreator, EthosBasic, Euphoria, ExtremeBasic, FBSL, Fortran77 (Free), FreeBasic, GLBasic, GWBasic, HotBasic, IBasic, JustBasic, LithiumBasic, MediaBasic, MoonRock Basic, NBasic, OmniBasic, Profan, WinBasic, Ruby, ScriptBasic, SmallBasic, UltraBasic, VPBasic, XBasic, XBLite, XPB Basic.

As you can see, there are quite a few to chose from and not easy to chose one of them.

And good luck to you with your MegaMillions picks, it might be hard to get the right combos unless you also wheel the right groups of numbers, otherwise you might have way too many combos.

And thanks a lot for the suggestions and input.

In someways I was wrong about LS2004, the problem is not so much with the program (It does need to be improved of course), but with not knowing how to use it right.

Good luck to all.

Fernando.

    The very process of randomization makes random half predictable and half unpredictable, it is inherent in the process itself.

    A conundrum perhaps ? No, it is not, people just don't understand the "nature" of "random", random it is always neither pro nor against, just a neutral process.

    For those who understand, this should break the long held myth of Random being unpredictable, on the lottery at least, it is half & half this will be one of my few contributions to the public lottery knowledge, another being, that there is no such thing in creation as "True Random", only "Pseudo-Random" or "Practical (Pseudo) Random".

    Random would be a "Will o' the wisp" kind of thing.

    If I knew good enough computer programming (I don't yet know any and might never know), I maybe would be able to make very good lottery programs, maybe even better ones than many that are out there.

    Good luck to all.

      I put those numbers and parameters into my RNG with instructions each number to be used a maximum of 10 times to limit its output and it printed 10 lines each with the number 25 and got stuck in a loop.  The RNG can print out 500 lines if the parameters don't limit it to less.

        The last MM numbers = 09/23/05 - 06 07 20 41 51  +38
          my definitions of these terms are:
          gaps are 1 - 13 - 21 - 10
          range is 06-51 = 46
          sum = 6+7+20+41+51 = 125

        My program use these same definitions for all the lotteries I track.

          I don't know programming, but it seems to be that what you wanted to do is very complicated, maybe you would had to rewrite or remake your program for it to do those things right (?).

          There are way too many possible combos on Pick 6 games and maybe even more on pick 5 + bb or mb games.

          So many combos might take way too much hard drive-space, the middle sums are where most of the combos are and fall of course like on the pick 3 game so the sum range filter might help little to reduce the combos, but they would help some any way.

          The gap ranges and range of combinations would also help some, but maybe still way too many combos to reduce.

          My own use of sums and gap ranges would be much more complete for even greater filtering.

          I would also make more complete use of other filters on jackpot kind of games.

          As to number groups, that is still beyond me, it's still too hard to figure out for me.

          For what you want your program to do, it might need more advance filtering LOGIC and rules.

          Filtering might be easier with simpler number groups, your kind of above number groups might be very much harder to implement.

          I now think that filtering the full ammount of combos for a pick 6, pick 5 + BB-MB or Pick 4 +BB, might be too hard, because of there being too many combos. So maybe you have to pick and wheel maybe no more than 40 to 50 % of the total numbers and then filter them or filter them as they are being wheeled 1 at a time or in groups or in some similar way.

          I don't know, but it might be fine to filter all possible combos if you have a very big hard drive and if your filters can really cut the combos down to a very very small size, you might have to use very many filters in very many ways.

          Jackpot games allow for very many filters to be used on them unlike the pick 3 game.

          One of my big questions is, How much hard drive space is need for 175 000 000 combos ? And How long does it take to produce and to filter them out?

          A filter program for jackpot games might need very advanced filtering logic rules, because of the very complex filtering that it would do.

          The more factors and or sources in which the filters are based ( like past draws and number groups) then the harder that it might be to make the filter program.

          The problem with filtering is that they filter the whole combinations, if you could also filter numbers per position then you could reduce the combos even much more.

          Good luck.

          Many present filtering techniques are not good enough for jackpot games, more and better super filters must be designed.

          Work on 1 filter at a time and test them, then another and so on also work on new filters.

            These are lines picked by my RNG for the 09/27/05 drawing.  The first 10 were produced using all the parameters in my previous post.  Since 25 was the only numbers in the 15-25 range, it was in every combinations.

            MM092705:
                  01 18 25 41 53    +46

                  13 25 41 45 55    +43

            For the next ten lines, the parameter of a number from certain previous drawings was eliminated and maximum use of numbers limited to two.
             
                  01 05 35 38 48    +46 
                  07 13 43 45 52    +17 
                  20 25 40 51 54    +31 
                  08 14 18 41 42    +22 
                  09 36 46 50 53    +27 
                  25 42 45 46 55    +43

                  08 41 43 48 53    +04 

            For the next 500 combinations only the sums, range, gaps and previous matches parameters were used and no combination of 3 was repeated in the group.

            I will check after the drawing to see if the parameters or the number and combinations selections was of any value.  It could be that all this picking the most popular numbers and picking combinations within selected parameters have no value at all, but testing these theories cost nothing.

            Actually the program I have is capable of during the above.  The 500 combinations file only takes 12KB of disk space and since I store all my files the same, the same amount of space is used for 6+1, 5+1 or 5+0.  GWBasic has some memory limits but by using virtual memory on the hard disk, I could probably work with all the possible combinations, first I would have to convince myself a change to my program would be worth the effort.

              So your program can really handle all of that ? It is a lot better than I though that it was.

              Now, if you could pick 15 numbers per position for the 5 main number positions and 30 numbers for the megaball then they would come to:

              22, 781, 250.                        If 15 x 5 x 20 then:

              15, 187, 500.                         If 10 x 5 x 25 then:

                2, 500, 000 = 10 numbers per the first 5 positions + 25 #s per the MB.

              Maybe that last one would be best and then you can filter those out.

              Now let us go back to filters:

              Total sum of numbers = yes. sum = 6+7+20+41+51 = 125

               sum of 4 numbers = 6+7+20+41 = 74,  6+7+20+51= 84,  6+7+41+51=105 in other words Sums by Position: 1 for 5, some others for 4 positions, then some others for 3 positions = Sums by Position filter from 3 numbers to 5 or 6 numbers.

              --------------

              LDSR, my last digit sum roots from 3 to 6 numbers by position, the last digit of a sum is the LDSR. Do the sums first and then their LDSR.

              ----------

              Roots do the sums first from 3 to 6 by position and then do their Roots (Regular roots besides LDSR also) sum the digits and the one digit left is the root.

              ----------

              Also do your gaps and ranges.

              This is all for now RJOH. I of course have many more filters than those, but try those for now.

              Good luck.

              Let me know please if you try those things and if they seem to work or not.

              Fernando (filters are legion).

               

              I wish that I had lottery programs with all my legion of filters in them.

                It might be best to leave jackpot games alone, the ones that pay a lot like MM might be impossible to win by a system and the ones that might be easier maybe (maybe not) like cash 5 pay too little and are not worth it.

                That might leave only the pick 3 and 4 they might or not be worth playing.

                If you want more money then go for the pick 4, if the cash 5 would pay more then it might be O.K. to bother with it.

                For jackpot games it might just be best to buy 1 quick pick per draw and no more, those games are even more trouble than the pick 3 and 4.

                All the filters in the world might not help enough, try filters on the cash 5 games first and if they work then try them on pick 6 games.

                Good luck.

                  LANTERN,

                  As I've mentioned in other posts my RNG is designed to list up to 500 combinations within selected parameters.  Since 500 is more than I would ever play by myself and the most any pool that I'm in is likely to play and I know from the getgo the conditions that would eliminate a combination I don't add it to the list to be eliminated later.  Compiling a play list is easier and faster doing it this way rather than compiling thousands of combinations and eliminating all but a few to play later.  If I know the numbers I want in the combinations and the parameters I want those combinations to fit, I don't want to spend more than an half hour coming up with them and making out the cards.
                   

                  Sums by position have no meaning to me, so it not a parameter that I would include in my RNG.  The parameters I use in my RNG are not only used to eliminate combinations but to also include them.  I look at previous drawings and use parameters that would include at least most of those combinations because I'm trying to pick combinations that look like those combinations but aren't the same.

                      Winning numbers 09/27/05 - 14 17 26 27 28 +05

                      3 consecutive numbers 26 27 28 , not a very common thing.

                      2 2X and 3 3X decades,  only 2 decades for the whole main numbers, again not a very common thing.

                      The right digits mostly high, a little uncommon.

                      Low decades all across, a little uncommon also.

                      I have not looked at the last 2 or so past draws so I can't say anything about that.

                      Low decades means a little low sums, but rigth digits are mostly high, so about normal on the overall total sum.

                      Even and odds kind of normal I guess.

                      Repetition of right digits normal also.

                      Sum of last digits high, a little uncommon.

                      Perhaps overall an uncommon MegaMillions number more or less.

                      Since the number was somewhat uncommon then I can't say anything about your filtered rng results.

                      Also, since I have not tried to get the number myself then I can't say anything anyway.

                      I have no experience whatsoever so far at trying to get jackpot winning numbers.

                      Perhaps you should try again (?).

                      I myself could not use the number groups that you used, because I don't have your program and also because I would not know how anyway, but I would use more filters other than number groups.

                      I would also use some filters that would pass most winning draws at the beginning and maybe later I would try also some filter setups made just for the particular next draw.

                      Good luck.

                      It would be good to see how it would do on 10 to 20 or more tries, a whole year of tries would be best.

                        LANTERN,

                        Three adjacent numbers has happened twice this year on 01/21/05 - 17 27 39 40 41 +21 and 08/23/05 - 06 07 08 13 40 +12, so it does happen.

                        The propose of using  gaps, sums, ranges and etc. is to have the most common features of previous winners in your group of combinations, so when the uncommon happens you don't have a chance of winning big.

                        The 500 lines I listed used all 56 WB and 46 MB so they didn't prove much except that you need to be lucky to beat the odds even when you profile your picks with the most common features of pass winners. 

                        It will be interesting to see your results when you come up with a group of numbers using your filters.  Good luck to you.

                          Jackpot lottery programs have only some, maybe few of the jackpot game filters that I would use, so I can't use many of my filters with them.

                          But I will try to use whatever they have, I will have to start testing some programs maybe soon, then I will see which program or programs I will use, But as I said, they won't have most or many of my filters.

                          Not being familiar with jackpot lottery programs, it will take a while to test some of them.

                          I will post numbers when I am ready.

                          Good luck.

                            This thread started with the question "How many combinations would it take to win 20% to 50% of the time with a game such as MegaMillions?". I know that all winning combinations of MM have so far have had sums of 49-227 with 75% within 100-170, gaps of 1-43 with 75% within 1-13 and ranges of 14-55 with 75% within 22-49. 

                            I know that it's likely that future winners will also fall within these parameters, but I lack the math skills to figure out the number of combinations that are within these parameters.  I do know it's less than the 3,819,816 possible combinations plus the 46 bonus numbers, so I started writing a GWBasic program that will print out every possible combinations for a pick5/6 game and I will add a routine that will count only the combinations that are within those parameters. Later I may add other routines to do other things.  Below is the start of that program.

                            RJOh 

                            10 REM CS=COMBINATION SIZE HN=HIGHEST NUMBER IN COMBINATIONS (for MM CS=5 and HN=56)
                            20 FOR N1=1 TO HN-CS+1
                            30 FOR N2=N1+1 TO HN-CS+2
                            40 FOR N3=N2+1 TO HN-CS+3
                            50 FOR N4=N3+1 TO HN-CS+4
                            60 FOR N5=N4+1 TO HN-CS+5:IF CS=5 THEN 80
                            70 FOR N6=N5+1 TO HN-CS+6
                            80 PRINT N1;N2;N3;N4;N5;
                            90 IF CS=6 THEN PRINT N6 ELSE PRINT:GOTO 110
                            100  NEXT N6
                            110  NEXT N5
                            120  NEXT N4
                            130  NEXT N3
                            140  NEXT N2
                            150  NEXT N1

                              I did the count using those parameters which only reduced the possible combinations from 3,819,816 to 3,743,683, so the real odds are 1:172,209,418 instead of 1:175,711,586 about a 2% improvement, not a lot for all that filtering.  Makes me think that all the filtering may be a waste of time.
