Let me explain:

I play a 5/52 game and I've found a way to pick 1-3 numbers from a pool of 10-17 numbers. This works almost every draw. (At least 21 out of the past 25 draws). So, every draw I know that one, two or sometimes three of the 52 total numbers will pop up in this mini-pool. Is there a way to expound on this? Any ideas or suggestions?

What a wonderful world...

Not to burst your bubble, but from what you describe, it sounds like you hit about the same as the rest of us with our 'systems'.

No worries. It wasn't anything I was excited about, I figured it wasn't bad considering the 52 total numbers. It was just an interesting occurence. Thanks Guesser.

Jokerh, my input...increase your number pool to about half of the number pool and use a RNG to make your selections from that.  Just my opinion, but if you're getting 1-3 right from a smaller number pool you might have all the numbers in your larger pool and let an RNG try to catch it for you from the larger pool.  You are doing something right to get your 1-3 right from a 10-12 number pool...carry it on to a 25 number pool and you might have all five in your pool.  You've already lowered your odds tremendously

Good luck with it.

What I would do is keep that part of your system intact - don't touch it.

Now, look at the other numbers you didn't hit, and see if you can develop a system for those numbers, what do they have in common ?

Nothing ?

Well, having nothing in common is a system also, but there is probably something there, you just need to find it.

Most folks here have a system that, over the course of a year, will get them 4 of the 5 white balls a couple of times, but it's that one damned elusive ball that hits from out of nowhere, the one that makes no sense, doesn't fit any kind of 'pattern', that hits. So that in itself is a system, a system of things that should hit for no good reason.  It may be called 'randomness'.

Welcome to the club.
