Is this a good way to play your numbers?

    Regression is a way of defining the extent to which two or more variables are related. Regression can be used in an attempt to predict things, but this can be tricky when it comes to the Lottery. The existence of a correlation between variables does not always mean that there is a cause-and-effect link between them. What many folks playing the Lottery call Regression may actually be more appropriately called Intuitive Guessing. How successful these methods are, depends heavily on how Intuitive the individual using them is. When it comes to Lottery number selection what appears to be Luck may be a finely honed Intuitive ability.

      Is there any software available that charts this regression analysis?

            Very interesting. Also very much beyond my abilities. Have you access to something that can use lottery data for that?

              The old Professor Jones Platinum lottery software included a routine it called a regression analysis, never did anything for me no matter how many times I tried it or came back to it. BobP

                Free Statistical Software

                Here is some free software I have used for doing statistical analysis of lotto data.

                http://www.woundedmoon.org/win32/kyplot.html

                http://www.ssc.rdg.ac.uk/software/instat/instat.html

                Another useful program is Simstat, but only the old DOS version

                is functional without buying at least the student version for Windows.

                For finding dominant cycles in data Freq v2.1 is usefull.
