I've been predicting the West Virgina Cash25 for a while and thought my system had been doing well with a prize ratio of 115%+ and a prediction ratio of 6%+ however I did a check as to what would have happened had I just posted the previous 25 drawings as predictions rather than picking 25 combinations myself during the last 16 drawings (four weeks) and got the following results.

  MATCH  0 = 60
  MATCH  1 = 158
  MATCH  2 = 143
  MATCH  3 = 33
  MATCH  4 = 6
  MATCH  5 = 0
  MATCH  6 = 0

I would have spent $400(imaginary) and won $93(real world)/$765(prediction board)
prediction performance ratio 39/400=9.8%
prize ratio (real world)93/400=23%/(prediction board)=765/400=192%

Now I'm re-evaluating my system and setting a new standard that it has to meet to have any value in the real world.

    I do the 5 Picks rule. I get a set of 15 numbers mix the numbers up, to make 5 picks. Cuts down on the amount of plays and at the same time usually upping the bottom line pay out percentage.
