Hi all,

I am looking for open source lottery programs.  I found one but it is a 6/49 program which will do me no good here in Texas.  I am especially interested in 5 number programs.

      If you understand the computer language it's written in then you can modify or adjust its variables and routines to fit your needs.  The trouble with open source software is it has no value to the person that doesn't understand the computer language it's written in.

        What is the name of the program that you found and if it is open source "FreeWare" you can post a link to it and or to the site where it is at, but the name is enough if Google can find it for me.

        There is a program called WinHunter that it is said to be open source, use Google to find it with, I don't think that it is what you are looking for, but it might be. 

        ------------

        It would be nice to be able to play a straight 6/49  no bonus ball game.

            For some reason I can't get the website to load, but try looking on freshmeat.net for any new programs for lottery picks. It is a site where folks can post new programs they are working on or for others to contribute to the development.

              Thanks cheesegrits - I got the site to load and found three lottery programs there.  At least one is open source.

              I bookmarked the page for later use - thanks again,

                there are about 12 hits for "lottery" on http://sourceforge.net

                including winhunter.

                Playing more than one ticket per game is betting against yourself.

                    i've used winhunter also at sourceforge, but it has a steep learning curve

                      What ever happened to the guy that wrote winhunter?  He used to post at LP hoping other members would help develop that program into a winner.  I guess nobody was interesting in working on someone else's program.

                        I write programs that run on Windows, if I know what the method is of the system I can write a program for it. I had a 5 of 5 a few years ago with a program written in QuickBASIC at the time before VS .net came along.

                          I'm thinking the name of the member who wrote winhunter was Mark and I haven't seen any of his post for a long time.

                          I write programs in GWBasic and compile them with a QuickBASIC compiler, I have Visual Basic 6 but I never took the time to learn it.  As long as Window comes with a command windows and DOS programs can be started from the Desktop I won't have to learn.

                          I have a lottery program that I've worked on over the years but the best I've done is a 5/6 a few years back in Ohio SuperLotto, the best lately was a 4/5+0 in MegaMillions a couple of weeks ago.
