I'm actually working on a method that combines past Mega Millions and Powerball numbers to get numbers.

I can do that now by combining the MegaMillions and PowerBall files into a new file, sorting it by dates and using it the same as any other file.  Some times I get predictions that can't be used in PowerBall, but I haven't noticed any better predictions for either game.

    I know there are quite a few who do use both drawings to figure out the outcoming of the game. I am testing past draws from different dates to see if I can find a way to pinpoint winning numbers for each draw. I usually come up with about $50 worth of tickets. Of course I can't afford to play that many tickets so it's all just testing at this point.

    How are you doing with your testing?

      An actuary once told me that "numbers do not have a memory".  So in my opinion, having a drawing in different states that seem to be close to each other doesn't mean to me anything significant.

      It also meant to me that having only one number off is as just as wrong as being 10 numbers away from that last matching number to get.

      thank goodness someone who finally understands that each number carries the same weight factor in being pulled. They carry no better weight simply because they are beside each other in a counting sequence. Nor do they carry any less weight factor if they were pulled previously.

      ~~Is it true, Is it kind,Is it necessary. ~~~

       Thanks be to the giving numbers: 1621,912,119 02014

        I've compared number positions to see if there's a scatter pattern more common than others among winning combinations.  I think when people give more weight to numbers close to the winning numbers, that's what they're trying to do.  Someone mentioned one time that they bought a lottery system that did something similar when it indexed previous winning combinations to come up with new combinations to play.

          Hi-

          Just6ntlc- Happy Belated Birthday. I hope it was a good one.

          The results from MM on May 23 were: 17,21,28,48,54 and MM 1

          Powerball on May 24: 02,03,12,47,51, PB10 

          2 and 47 are adjacent numbers to mm numbers 48 and 1

          Friday May 26 MM: 12,14,20,47,48 MM 24

          12 and 47 were the same for wed pb drawing and fri mm drawing, 48 is a adjacent number 

          Sat May 27 PB: 06,23,27,41,47 PB 19

          47 was the same in both drawings and 23 and 19 are adjacent numbers to mm 20 and 24

           

          I understand what some of you are saying, it is just a coincidence. Those of you who use Gail Howard's system know that adjacent numbers are useful and probable when picking your own numbers.

          Just6ntlc- what do you think.

          All the best-

            Adjacent numbers for WB and PB and cold/overdue numbers should be probable.

              Koda, the winning MM numbers for 5/30/06 are 2-13-28-34-45 MB 36. Lets compare to previous draws.

                Compared to last nights MM drawing 27 and 28 are adjacent numbers.

                Let's see how tonights powerball numbers compare to last nights MM draw.

                  Powerball numbers for May 31 are: 10,20,22,43,49, PB 3

                  If you compare Tuesdays MM draw there is one adjacent number- 3 is adjacent to MM 2

                  If you compare Sat and Wed powerball drawings: 

                  There are 2 adjacent numbers 19 and 20 and 22 and 23.

                    Wow, I didn't know that you can have adjacent numbers that connect WB and PB Koda. Why did you have adjacent numbers from WB and PB? I hope WB 8, WB 31, WB 33, and PB 40 come out soon because right now those numbers are very cold Koda. If I had to pick a $1 PB ticket for you in the next draw as my guess, I would select 3-8-31-33-48 PB 40 in the next draw.

                      I am confused- I compare all the numbers in each draw. I don't look at wb and pb or mm as different draws. I look at the all of the numbers, I use Gail Howard's Advantage Plus. If the numbers look good then I compare them to the mega million draw. I live in Colorado so I can't play Mega Millions. I pick a mix of cold and hot numbers. 

                      Why can't you have adjacent numbers to wb and pb? When I say adjacent numbers, I am comparing all the numbers. I do the same comparision to megamillions and the mega ball.  I am not pushing any system- I  started this thread to see if anyone else looked at the numbers and saw that there are similiarities almost every draw, like I did.

                          Koda, I understand now on adjacent numbers for both WB and MB (in MM) and PB (in PB). My guess tonight for PB is 3-8-31-33-48 PB 40 tonight. Good luck to you.

                            Hi- I don't really know if there is anything to comparing the two draws (MM and PB). But if anything can help win- what the heck. I like 3, 42,48, 41,16,17,26 35,31,19,22,53 pb 29,33,35,42

                            Best of luck to you too-

                              Well, I won $15.00 for the powerball number. All the rest of my picks were way off.

                              Sat Powerball numbers- 5, 6, 18, 20, 50 and PB 35

                              Fri Mega millions numbers- 3, 10, 18, 36, 38 and MM 41

                              18 in both and PB 35 adjacent to mm wb 36
