no, that's why development ceased ;-)

actually i left it 3/4 done when I was trying to convert it to a smarter program that would also eliminate past winning combos. It was the only worksheet I had that was just about the WBs.

this was back when I was putting alot of effort into studying skip/hit data separated by wednesdays or saturdays. I was checking number "chains" and had noticed numbers had a stronger tendency to repeat from wednesday to wednesday than they did from draw to draw or sat. to sat.

the first 8 lines were meant to be the best picks and the last 3 lines were garbage collectors, to make sure all (then)53 numbers were used.

Playing more than one ticket per game is betting against yourself.

    hyperesoniq,

     I'm getting the same thing. The last few combos seem to be garbage. But then again, when you only capture 0 to 1 number with your primary choices, it makes those last garbage choices very important.

    My problem is the seed (or beginning combination). Since I run all combinations in my evaluations, the beginning combo determines what the subsequent combos will be.

     

    You are a slave to the choices you have made.  jk

      Sounds like this way of picking combinations might be helpful to those players or groups who play more than 12 lines if they produce several groups and filter out the garbage combinations.  If the first 8 or so combinations are consider primary lines then three groups would produce ~25 primary lines to play which may include all 56 numbers with no garbage combinations.

        It might be a good idea to strategize your challenges. I'm thinking about joining this type of challenge one of these days at my own time. I have my own paper ball draw that I can use by using each number only once.

          I would be willing to participate in the predictions board challenge when I find the time.

          The only issue I have is publicly posting the predictions before draw time....an issue which has been discussed ad infinauseum here on the LP.

            RJOh and JKING, these are the notes on PB and MM history on my documents:

            A. 2, 7, 9, 16, 28, 33, 37, 38, 39, 45, and 46 haven't been the winning numbers of both WB and MB in the same draw in MM.

            B. 30 is the only number that hasn't been the winning numbers of both WB and PB in the same draw in PB.

            RJOh, you now have a challenger. I picked eleven lines randomly which include 55 for PB or the 56 numbers for MM. I choose my numbers on my paper ball random draw. These are my picks for every MM and PB challenges for each draw from this point forward. I can't change my numbers just like when I buy a ticket for MM and/or PB. My picks are mainly final. If the scenario in brackets do occur in any draw, then my bonus number can change.

            15-17-29-33-50 MM:+33, PB: +21 [If WB 33 and MB 33 occur in same draw in MM, then my bonus will be +21]

            26-31-34-36-55 Bonus [MM and PB]: +34

            7-12-18-20-45 MM: +7, PB: +17 [If WB 7 and MB 7 occur in the same draw in MM, then my bonus will be +17]

            5-6-9-28-51 MM: +28, PB: +15 [If WB 28 and MB 28 occur in the same draw in MM, then my bonus will be +15]

            3-8-13-19-39 MM: +39, PB: +40 [If WB 39 and MB 39 occur in the same draw in MM, then my bonus will be +40]

            1-23-32-42-43 Bonus [MM and PB]: +35

            4-22-38-40-49 MM: +38, PB: +13 [If WB 38 and MB 38 occur in the same draw in MM, then my bonus will be +13]

            25-35-37-41-53 MM: +37, PB: +31 [If WB 37 and MB 37 occur in the same draw in MM, then my bonus will be +31]

            2-14-16-24-44 MM: +16, PB: +25 [If WB 16 and MB 16 occur in the same draw in MM, then my bonus will be +25]

            10-27-48-52-54 Bonus [MM and PB]: +11

            11-21-30-46-47 MM: +46, PB: +30 [If WB 46 and MB 46 occur in the same draw in MM, then my bonus will be +30. However, if WB 30 and PB 30 occur in the same draw in PB, then I have to redraw my PB number <= +42]

              I'd work this coverage. It includes all 56 numbers of the pick 5 part with a little overlap.

                Jade,
                   You'll do better having a mix of odd/even rather than all odd or all even.

                Reguardless, the 5x11 grid method accommodates a variety of approaches.

                  Just6ntlc,

                  I don't understand why you had conditional bonus numbers, the challenge was only for the WBs.  These are my random picks for tonight's MegaMillions drawing which I also posted on the prediction board.  The ten lines include 50 of the 56 numbers.

                   14 23 44 48 51 +32

                        RJOh, you now have a challenger. Since you only said WBs, then I'll remember it now. I picked eleven lines randomly which include 55 for PB or the 56 numbers for MM. I choose my numbers on my paper ball random draw. I can't change my numbers just like when I buy a ticket for MM and/or PB. These are my PB picks for this challenge from this point forward.

                            Tonight's winning numbers were 02 10 36 42 43 +23.  Only one of the groups had a winner.

                              RJOH,

                                  Nice to see you getting all 5 numbers every time. *S* Actually, I was looking at Maddogs challenge and was wondering...What is the minimum wheeling amount for 4 out of 4 for 15 numbers. I was looking at Orange's 4 out 5 for MM.

                                Are you generating your grids via random picks with filtering?

                              You are a slave to the choices you have made.  jk
