Let me try this again.

The last draw in CA was 5-7-10-11-17.

05 = 14,23,32

07 = 16,25,34

10 = 01

11 = 02,20

17 = 08,26,35

That is a total of 12 numbers to wheel.

Here are the tickets for a 4if5/12 (I posted these on the Prediction Page for CA):

1. 02-14-23-32-34
2. 14-20-23-32-35
3. 08-14-16-23-34
4. 01-02-14-16-23
5. 14-20-23-25-26
6. 14-16-20-26-32
7. 01-08-14-25-32
8. 02-14-20-32-35
9. 02-14-16-25-34
10. 14-16-25-34-35
11. 01-14-20-26-34
12. 02-14-26-34-35
13. 08-14-20-34-35
14. 01-08-14-26-35
15. 02-08-14-20-26
16. 16-20-23-25-32
17. 08-23-26-32-34
18. 01-02-23-26-32
19. 01-08-20-23-32
20. 02-16-20-23-34
21. 01-08-16-23-26
22. 16-20-23-26-35
23. 01-23-25-34-35
24. 02-08-23-25-35
25. 01-16-32-34-35
26. 01-16-20-32-35
27. 02-08-16-32-35
28. 02-25-26-32-34
29. 08-20-25-32-34
30. 20-25-26-32-35
31. 08-16-25-26-34
32. 01-02-16-25-26
33. 01-08-16-20-25
34. 01-02-20-25-35
35. 01-02-08-20-34

I think this is the correct conversion chart.  Please let me know of any mistakes:

 01 10 02 11 20 03 12 21 30 04 13 22 31 05 14 23 32 06 15 24 33 07 16 25 34 08 17 26 35 09 18 27 36 10 01 11 02 20 12 03 21 30 13 04 22 31 14 05 23 32 15 06 24 33 16 07 25 34 17 08 26 35 18 09 27 36 19 10 28 37 20 02 11 21 03 12 30 22 04 13 31 23 05 14 32 24 06 15 33 25 07 16 34 26 08 17 35 27 09 18 36 28 10 19 37 29 11 30 03 12 31 04 13 22 32 05 14 23 33 06 15 24 34 07 16 25 35 08 17 26 36 09 18 27 37 10 28 38 11 29 39 12

Good choices I have both but I prefer "Advantage Plus" because for some reason I cannot use Lottery Director effectively with all the really good features it has I feel like maybe it's just too much.

Using the Thanksgiving day draw of 10-11-18-21-23, here is the workout:

10 = 01

11 = 02, 20

18 = 09, 27, 36

21 = 03, 12, 30

23 = 05, 14, 32

Putting those 12 numbers into a 4if5/12 wheel produces:

1. 01-02-12-20-36
2. 01-02-20-30-32
3. 01-02-05-09-36
4. 01-02-03-09-12
5. 01-02-14-27-30
6. 01-09-14-20-30
7. 01-03-05-20-27
8. 01-12-20-30-32
9. 01-09-12-27-36
10. 01-09-27-32-36
11. 01-03-14-30-36
12. 01-12-14-32-36
13. 01-05-30-32-36
14. 01-03-05-14-32
15. 01-05-12-14-30
16. 02-09-20-27-30

18. 02-03-12-14-20
19. 02-03-05-20-30
20. 02-09-12-30-36
21. 02-03-05-09-14
22. 02-09-14-30-32
23. 02-03-27-32-36
24. 02-05-12-27-32

Great table, I was about to do the same when I saw your post.

Shouldn't your wheel include the previous winning numbers to

cover the repeats?

It isn't my system.  Delores is the one that proposed it, so you should ask her, but looking at her posts, I don't think she included them.  Adding another 5 numbers would mean a 4if5/17 wheel.  Now we are talking expensive!!  In the last draw there were two repeats which would have given a total of 3 correct which pays about \$16 here in California.

I just looked it up ... a 4if5/17 wheel is 182 tickets!

Tonight's draw = 7-20-24-30-39

Two numbers 20 and 30 were in the workout.

I'm discouraged, so giving up on this system for California.  I hope it works for others.

Ohio Rolling Cash5 (5/39 = 1:575757) has rolled up to \$476,000 for 12/01.  Now would be a good time to try one of those great Pick5 system if you're playing in Ohio.  Good luck to you.

I notice some of you post predictions for multiple p5 games. Are you able to actually play them? I know this can be done with p3 / p4 games, but haven't seen it w/ p5.

I prefer to play just one pick5 game and that's Ohio RC5 and only when its jackpot roll to \$400,000 plus.

RJ, do you ever play multi draws on your pick5 numbers, or do you generate new numbers for every draw?

Since I live in a state that doesn't have a lottery and it too far to drive every day to the state lines of those states that do, I play multi draws on pick5. But even though I've won some smaller prizes with mulit draws, sometimes I wonder if that's a wise thing to do. Perhaps it would be a better strategy to just select more numbers for the current draw (on the day I can drive to the state line) and skip the multi draws. What do you think?

If you've played multi draws, have you had any luck with them?

Since Rolling Cash5 is local, there's no need to play multi-draw.  I've play multi-draw for 2 drawings whenever I've driven to Indiana to play PowerBall, but I only do that when PB is over \$200M since MegaMillions is played locally also.

My system for picking my numbers is effected by the last drawing, so I prefer to pick a new list every time I play.  I don't play RC5 regularly, but its jackpot has rolled to over \$475,000 so it's a good time to try my system on it.  When it roll back to its starting level of \$100,000 I won't be playing again until it get to \$400K+.

Since the odds of RC5 is 1:575,757, I think my odds are better if I put all my eggs in one basket a few times rather than one every time, there are fewer chances of losing when ever I play that way.

Have you ever tracked your non-winning numbers beyond the draw you purchased them for to see how they did in future draws?

"Since the odds of RC5 is 1:575,757, I think my odds are better if I put all my eggs in one basket a few times rather than one every time, there are fewer chances of losing when ever I play that way."

That's what I'm starting to believe. Perhaps the better strategy is to analyze drawing history through the last draw and play 50 combinations for one draw, instead of 10 combinations for 5 draws, which is what I normally do.

The other side of the coin is "you have to be in it, to win it," but as you point out there is a greater risk of losing with that strategy if your system for picking numbers is dependent on the last drawing.

I need to try to figure out in what way recent drawing history through the last draw effects not only the next draw, but the next 2 or 3 draws beyond...
