aberdeennut,

If you can convince someone who does coding for a living and enjoy playing lotteries that you have some ideas that really could improve your odds of winning a lottery jackpot, they probably would be glad to team up with you and code your ideas into a program.  It would a big let down to some day discover you really could have won a lottery jackpot had you only found someone to code your ideas into a program.

    @aberdeennut: I think many of us start out on paper, and as our "idea" shows potential (if I add a little here...) we get to a place where we realize the thing has grown too complex to reliably and quickly be one by hand. That's certainly true for lotto-type games.

    The code is only as useful as the idea behind it. Poor ideas, coded, only give you the wrong answer ... faster. LOL
