Is there a program (preferably free), that will allow me to enter past pick5/pick6 results and see if certain lines have come out before? I want to be able to see if there have been repeats in certain games. Thanks.

    Most commercial programs that will do that(LottoPro, LottoMaster, and etc.) offer a free trial period.  Many states websites have programs on their website that will search previous drawings to see if your numbers have ever come up.  If you have a data program (Excel or some other spread sheet) on your computer, you can use it once you set it up to do that.

      Thanks RJOh. Unfortunately, I don't have Excel. Do you know if Covermaster is capable of doing this?

        you can also check on the website...there is a button there that says check tickets or winning numbers search...you can then enter your numbers than see if that particlar line has already been drawn or not.....i dont know of any programs but the way i do it is by checking the results on website myself visually...bring up the winning numbers list for the past year....then say your prefered line starts with a 7...you can quickly go up and down the past winning numbers list, spot those starting with a seven and see the other numbers that follow...or you can start from the last number and check....it takes longer this way of course than with a comp program but sometimes this method has greater benefits..it allows you to see the overall list and gives you a feeling how the numbers are following each other...there may be partial matches to what you are looking for...with a comp program it is very dry....you will just put in your line and if it doesn't match entirely it will say no and thats it...

          Thanks benmas. I was thinking of doing it that way, but one of the games list goes back to 1999. However, I may just end up having to do that.

            It's not free but Gail Howard's LottoAdvantage system is (in my opinion)a must have for pick 5 players. It's back history data is invaluable. You can punch in any numbers and it will bring up exactly when they came up and in what result all the way to the beginning of the game.

              If you want something like Excel w/o laying out the cash, there's the OpenOffice suite. It's free to download, and its Calc spreadsheet has all the power you are likely to need (their StarBasic language is a little different, but there is a pdf book on that, too. - Also free.)

              In neo-conned Amerika, bank robs you.

                  CoverMaster is a custom wheel creating program.  It will create almost any size wheel with almost any guarantee if you have the time.  It won't search regular data files.

                  You might check out lotto-logix for some links to other programs, most will be free or offer a free trial period and probably come with data files of the lotteries you want to check which might save you a lot of time.

                  If you have your data in a text file, you can search for strings of numbers using the text editor in NotePad and WordPad but that not as good as a regular program designed to do that.

                    Lotto Buster does this well but it is not free.  They do have a trial version though.

                      RJOh, I tried notepad, but it didn't work well for me. I may actually have to just plop down some money for a good sorting program. I did check out Lotto Buster site, but I think I will continue to look around before I even try making a purchase on a program. I am going to check out some sites that people have been kind enough to tell me about here and in PM's.

                            NotePad won't sort, it's a text editor.  You can use its editor to find or replace a string in a text file.  For example if you had the text file :

                                02/26/08  - 09 12 30 35 55 +15

                            You could use the editor to search for the string "23 46 48 49", but the string has to look exactly as what you're looking for.

                              It kinda depends on what you need the information for.  Lottery "experts" say not to play a combination that has already hit, well that only applies to the larger Pick-6 lottery games.  The old Florida 5/26 repeated 5 numbers that had been drawn previously often enough that for the early years you could have made a nice profit playing only the previously drawn winning combinations.

                              The GH software has a routine that takes a user selected range of draw history and finds all the pairs, triples, quads and quints that have been drawn more then once.  It's interesting, but you can spend the night making up combinations out of triples with numbers in common only to win nothing.  Sounds good, doesn't work or if it does, not often enough to be interesting or needs something more to let you know when to try it.  An old dos software called Lotowins made 20 combinations out of previously drawn combinations with numbers in common, again nothing.
