I find lottery software is useful for everything I need except prediction.

The software is great for storing the draw history and printing copies
again and again, charts all sorts and great for wheeling and filtering.

On the down side I have never found a lottery software program any
good at prediction.  And believe me I have a lot of lottery software on
my computer. 

Lottery software does not train the brain, only pencil and paper can
do that.

        The lottery software I use, only creates abbreviated wheels and then filters the numbers based on total sums, max numbers in a row (15,16,17 etc.), how many odd/even numbers in a row (7,9,11/2,4,6 etc.) and so on. It does not do statistics.


        Then I save the created lines to the hdd and finally send them via internet to the lottery company. Won a 4 number and a 3 number prize this week using this method. About 82 dollar. Saves a lot of time using spreadsheets and lottery software. I probably use only 10-15 minutes figuring out the numbers and sending my lotto bets. The time saved I can use on figuring out how to improve the stats and my predictions.

                I kick ideas around on paper, and write my own code. It's the only way to fly... Cool

                        I Agree! There's an advantage to coding an ideas that you've tried using paper and pencil and liked, you can change the variables and test it many different ways in a short period of time.
