lottery prediction software...I found the software i've looked at, lotto runner was the best...but i like a more hands on,  know whats happening approach.

 

 

basically , it looks at history see which ones are due, and then which pairs not have been selected, run it past filters based on previously history.. about 10 filters..if the past 10 winners were odd-even favorite..it'll pick an even to balance etc.

one of my filters checks if triples were previously selected

i like to pick a set of 6-7 numbers, and 4-5 pb and buy all winning wheeled combinations. It usually is about 500 bucks a drawing.. BUT your covering a solid 10 % of pb #s .......about 15% of numbers

 

WHICH gives me about 0.015 of winning powerball.....

     Where did you find Lotto Runner?

     Sounds interest.  Can you say what itdoes as far as; pairs, history, hot and cold  #'s and due numbers?

     

    Roughly how much history is needed?  I know you said 10 previous, but you indicated odd-even,what if it's  mixed?

      I've written my own software to choose my PowerBall numbers and have used history based decisions in the past. I don't really care for history based decisions. There are a lot better ways of choosing numbers.

        I also wrote my own software to pick combinations for the games I play including those with a bonus ball such as MegaMillions or Ohio Super Lotto.  I also keep a data base of all drawings and use the same program to check my play files for winners with that data.  It's a work in progress which changes as I come up with better ideas.

          I always crack up when I read about 'which ones (numbers) are due'.........

          If anyone could actually predict which numbers are 'due', someone would hit it EVERY drawing, but nobody except a select few here seem to understand this.

           

          For example, a few weeks ago, PB 40 had not hit in 223 games, then it hit.  When was it 'due' ?   Around 125 or so ??

           

          Current case: WB #25 - has not hit in 350 draws.   350 ?   Yep - 70 games multiplied by 5 chances a game (they pull 5 WB's per game), so when was #25 'due' ?  If you started playing it at 20 games (100 draws), then you've drawn a loser for 50 games/250 draws longer than its' due date.

          Charting skips and hops only gets you so much, it will not get you all 5 numbers.

           

          So how do you know when something is 'due' out of 55 numbers to choose from ?

            the probabilities say , given a large number of runs, all numbers are equally drawn. If you drawn a bar graph depicting the number of times each number was drawn against the average for all numbers.. Those numbers are below the average WILL BE DRawn..its not a IF, or but Its a definite thing that these will be drawn.

             

            Yes  it might take a lot of drawns, but eventually when it does hit, on the 350th or 349th, drawing -- Your sitting there ready for it.

             

            More so, the probablities indicate , most usually there is a 3-2 3-2 outcome of hot-colds ...so yes some you pick numbers that are "due' other times you pick the hot ones just as well.

              For the few who don't know Due is relative.  Take a 6/48 game every number should be drawn once every 8 draws.  Those numbers not drawn become Due.  This is most evident with a new game where numbers quickly become hot, average, due and cold. The longest due numbers are often best considered as being dead and should not be played until at least one hit after which they often soon hit again. 

              Because there is no proven way to play lotto, one way is to determine what should happen in a perfect world and then try to match the actual with the theory.

                I was under the impression , teh longest due numbers will be most likely to "hit"... precisely because they haven't shown up yet..

                 

                 Maybe I could be wrong.

                  "The trend is your friend."

                  Some people insist that numbers that are hot tend to stay hot, and numbers that are cold tend to stay cold.  

                  Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

                  Lep

                  There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

                    It's BOTH.

                     The trick is, you have 5 numbers you have to hit.

                     The problem is, you will have too many numbers that have not hit in 'a long time' that are 'due', so do you play the 5 numbers that are the longest out ?  (currently 21-47-20-37-25).  Of course not.

                    Then you have a pool of numbers that (seem to) hit more often than your 'average' numbers, so do you play all of them ? 

                    (arguably 19, 26, 35, 38, 43, and about twelve others).  Of course not.

                    So do you play what is 'hot' over the last 8 drawings ?  (1-14-24-36, and then about thirty one others).   Nope.  That would leave you with twenty four other numbers you just cannot ignore like they don't exist.

                    So we are back to a little mixing and matching, and some guesswork, and a little luck.  And we are not even counting the Powerball itself.

                        If one knew with certainty that a number will come out in the very next draw because that number is "due", which other 4 numbers would you put with it?  How would you decide which other numbers to play.  Figure that one out and you have found the holy grail to lotto.

                          you'd do a wheeled combination with the remaining numbers, filter out all extreme combinations e.g. odd-even , high-low, etc

                          since hot-cold usually occure in 3-2 or 2-3 , you'd pick 1 other hot , and 3 or 2 cold numbers.

                            I do not believe in "due" numbers either... Maybe we should do a poll like this... Do you count on "due" numbers or not...?!?

                              What is funny, and happens a lot to me,  is that when a trend is detected, and I start trying to play around it, it ends.  Just like that, bam, done, over. 

                              To address this, in anticipation of a trend, I have created a small pool of numbers (8 or 9) depending on if it is 5/39 or 6/39, chose a common decade pattern, and play a few different combos every draw using this group of numbers.  Of course, as always, you have to have luck on your side because this is a game of chance.  But when the numbers fall into the pool; $$$$.

                              This has happened with my dynamic sets that change every day and have hit multiple 3/5 3/6"s, 4/5 and 5/6, intermittently.  But there are draws that when you see them,  and check them,  were in a pool that you used 2 weeks ago, and would have hammered it  with that pool from 2 weeks earlier!

                              So basically, I am going to play a small backyard size inflatable pool of numbers (no water filter) regularly, in addition to the larger pool that has the high rate Diatomaceous Earth filter that changes the pool water (numbers) every day.  Anyway LOL. jarasan US Flag
