I have used Lotto Pro myself, with no real wins. However, I took some of the features that Lotto Pro has, namely the skip chart, and adapted it to Excel for use with any Lottery drawing. I principally use it for Megamillions and Powerball. I can drop in the winning numbers, and it will display the skip chart with the number of drawings since a particular number hit. I did this because the skip chart in Lotto Pro had shown patterns of trending that I noticed, and I wanted something more expansive than the limited skip chart that the program gave you. By developing the Excel workbook, it also allowed me to develop separate skip charts for only the white balls, the Powerballs, and a combined chart with all drawn numbers. I have noticed that, in many instances, the number that hit are within 1 or 2 of those that I have played. As usual, close but no cigar.
Has anyone else noticed the trending of number that I mentioned? I am curious to know if anyone has developed a similar methodology in their analysis of the games they play, and whether they have had any luck.
