You end up with skewed results by not scrapping the old data... Just look at how many times 54 and 55 were drawn in Powerball the last 314 games of the new matrix...If you keep previous data before they were added, systems wouldn't treat those 2 numbers the same as the rest.

Even if you just count raw frequency using ALL the numbers since the red ball was changed to 1-42, 54 and 55 are barely a blip on the radar, however they are quite hot in the context of the current matrix.

ALL of these systems are coincidental at best (whether homebrew or purchased), so if you feel better keeping all the data, go ahead... My take on the hobby is that I get a year off from analysis... maybe I'll put more time into playing the guitar :-)

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