I have been analyzing the results of the Louisiana state lottery, a 6/40 number drawing.

The pool of numbers extracted in the last 5 draws, on average 22 numbers, very frequently contains 3 or 4 of the winning numbers, sometimes 5 and very few times six of the winning numbers.

I have been experimenting with the wheels from Lotto Pro and Iliya Bluskov.  They do provide some consolation price, most of the time less than the money necessary to play the wheel.

Filtering the combinations generated by a wheel to reduce the cost makes things even worse.

Any idea on how to tame this group of numbers?

Thanks to all the experts in this forum.

    How do you define a lottery expert?  Is it some one who play lotteries a lot, or some one who win a lot of money playing lotteries?  If you're looking for the latter then you are out of luck.  Good luck to you.

      When you filter combinations out of a wheel you totally destroy the prize winning guarantee.  The better solution is to use an open cover wheel design built to a high percentage of coverage, but not 100%.  This can lower your playing cost by a third to a half for a small amount of additional risk.  Get a free copy of Open Cover or CoverMaster and make your own wheels for less visit http://www.lotto-logix.com/wheellinks.html  Download v54 for CoverMaster to use right away, the newer version you have to email for the password, it's still free far as I know but takes time. Enter your filtered wheel into CoverMaster and test, you'll be surprised how little coverage you have left.  BobP
