The database that came with the program is about 3mbs, when I try to open it in Access it gives me the message that it's an unrecognized data format. I've got Microsoft Access 97, do I need a later version?

    I would be interested in lottery numbers to play for keno and the other lotteries in Atlantic Canada with the program?.

        Hi Beth,

        This software I'm not sure if it picks numbers or not, I think it just gives statistics for you to analyze??

        The only keno program that I'm aware of that'll actually do that is Gail Howard's smart picks but there's others out there no doubt. I've never tried Howard's program but some have said it works others haven't.

        It's too bad there aren't more programs available for keno, it's my favorite lottery game because it gives some of the best odds of winning, especially in video keno that plays every four or five minutes.

          Lottobuster,

           

          It is Access XP, I will have to add text input for it to work for you. I will see what I can do about that.

          The program does have the ability to generate numbers, it is done during the last phase of the analysis.

          I even tried to make it somewhat smart about the numbers it uses.

          Here in NY using Pick10 (Once daily) I have enabled the program to track the skip medians for the ball positions and then using numbers from the draws as the source I have it pick the number of balls that

          fall within the skip medians and then randomly generate numbers and if it is within the pool of numbers

          it selects it. It is not perfect and has not yielded anthing significant yet. I am always adding things to

          program as I analyze the numbers and try to get it to do most of my work.

            kotss,yes i would like the stripped down version so i can add my pick 3 and quick draw keno from mass. You willneed to explain how I add say the last 1000 daily numbers and say 100 past keno numbers as i am still a novice to some degree about this. Also will the daily analyze and select playable numbers. Sorry for all the questions. My e-mail is salesmn419@aol.com

              Sorry to anyone I was going to give the program to. I was quite busy over the weekend and did not have much time at all to devote to anything other than family tasks. I did have an idea to add to the program, and will distribute to anyone who has asked, once it is done.

              If you want to know what is then email me at kevrick666@hotmail.com. I should be able to pump out the code for it by tonight/tomorrow at the latest.

               

              Retxx, I might even set it up for you, time permitting. I do not mind doing things for others as long as I am the one who suggests it (in the case of data entry). I will not be making a habit of it, though. It might depend on the ease of extracting the data from the website.

              I have added some logic to the program to automatically create VTRAC info and LANTERN's Charts, I am almost done with those. Those are for Pick3 and possibly Pick4 type games. I am going to add some logic for LottoBuster when I can. Those combinations you were talking about. Let me see if I get what you want on that:

               

              You specify lets say 10 and 20, then you want to see a chart of how often they come up and possibly what dates/days. Is that correct?

                    Hi all, I have been busy adding to my program and need to get permission from several members of LotteryPost before distributing their systems to anyone. Please bear with me and I should be getting it before the next day or two, I hope. I have added the ability to read from a text file for all systems that I can

                    give statistics for. Access XP is still the best option, if you have Access XP. I could give you a blank database setup for your particular state if you want.

                            For the pick 3 and 4 daily games with preprogrammed logic guidelines it might be possible to auto and or semi-automatically filter out a source of numbers after 1 or more smart scans of a given range and or ranges of past draws. The smart scan needs to know what to look for and how to use the info in accord to given sets of preprogrammed guidines. In other words the program would automatically or semi autoautomaticallly filter out numbers from a source of them in a simillar way as I and or other people would, perhaps mostly as I would, it would probably be a series of scans as progressive evaluation, comparisons and then filtering might be best.

                            This idea is also for other  programmers such as Stoopendaal and Paurths.

                              Hi Lantern,

                              back in september i started writing the code for an "intelligent filter".
                              I never finished it, b/c i'm still writing/adjusting it all the time lol
                              The algorithm alone is filling several pages and grows just about every time i adjust it.
                              The most time, now, is spend on finding "holes" in the system, these holes is where it goe's wrong. There are several levels that this algorithm will handle, and the top level "search & finds" the set of filters that will be used.
                              The second level is the level where each filter on itself resides. Even if a filter is activated by the toplevel, the filter itself will first run a complete backtest using itself on the total drawhistory, this way "it" can (or should lol) find the best settings (some filters have over 15 different settings, and i have over 100 filters at the moment i write this down). Once "it" found the best settings, these must match a pre-computed value of hitting percentage. Sorry if this might all sound strange and weird, it's pretty hard to make it clear exactly what happens inside the algorithms.
                              So the filter then "decides" if it will stay turned on, or it will turn itself of.
                              There is a third level, and that's the jointfiltering. Every possible combination of existing filters, that have been activated by the toplevel event, will run test on themselves and give themselves a score on how they "did" after the result of the entire test comes in. This way the third level gets a ranking (if this is good English ofcourse, translating my thoughts might be the cause of misunderstandings ofcourse...)

                              Anyway, there is quite some "activity" (lol) once the toplevel starts its loop (which sometimes never ends lol)

                              Worked on it for months, an hour here an hour there, whenever i had the time, with the original idea only in my head. And the results are truly bad, very bad lol.

                              The good thing is, i think i know why the results are not good.
                              It's the human factor, changing your mind the last minute, getting a "feeling" about a certain number, "3 doubles in a row so no next double and there it is, another double", worst statistics for a repeater or so and yet, there it is ... things like that.
                              The filters don't have the ability to "feel" this kind of things, they never will. Too bad they could/should/would(?), need it in 95% of the draws...

                              In the end, it is always the person itself that will have to make the final decision.
