    @RJOh: When you remove the filter that checks for and discards combos that match 2+ of already chosen combos, does the system eventually find 4+ matches?

    Also, with that same filter disabled, what % of the total combos are generated?

        No, as with any group of numbers, four or more of the winning numbers have to be in the group and if you've matched two of them already, it will hinder having four of those numbers in the same line.  If the group is small enough you'll run out of choices that have not matched 2+ and have to change the parameters before having the maximum number of lines which may allow more of the winning numbers in the same line.  The idea of using such a filter is to get as many different combinations of threes and fours as possible and you have to be lucky to get three of more of the winning numbers in the same line during the first or second pass.

        As you can see, I had four of the winning numbers in the 20 lines for last night drawing and only two of them were in the same line once.  My group of numbers were too large and would have needed more passes before getting more than two of the winning numbers in the same line.  I seldom run the program out pass 25 lines since I limit myself to playing 20-25 lines.  I wouldn't want to run it out pass 25 lines and play the first 20 only to see the winner in one of the lines I didn't play. 

        In the future I may try running the program out farther and playing the last 20-25 lines.

          With the filter disabled, the number of combos are limited only by the number of times the number are used.  Since I save the the combos I want to use in the program memory, I limit them to 500.  I do however write all the combos accepted and rejected to the disk which are deleted when I start to generate a new set of combinations.

            Alright, I'm mixing it up a bit for Friday with the WB's.  Going to play balls that have appeared 4-8 times in the past 50 draws.  These balls seem to make up 63.85% of the draws, but I'm playing 36 of them (which is 64% of the balls, not much advantage there), so we'll see how it works.  I'll be looking into smaller ball sets that seem to have higher hit percentages, but we'll go with these for now.

            For the MB I am playing the top 20 repeating positions.

            WB: 1,2,6,8,9,11,12,13,16,17,19,20,22,23,24,25,28,29,30,31,32,35,36,39,41,43,44,46,47,49,50,51,52,53,54,55
            MB: 30,36,37,39,38,2,7,33,26,4,40,3,17,46,35,44,13,11,5,32

              Stew,

              In the last 100 drawings when the pool of numbers were numbers that had hit 4-8 times in the previous 50 drawings the pool size varied 30-43 numbers and had:

              all 5 winning numbers 9 times
              4 of 5 winning numbers 30 times
              3 of 5 winning numbers 31 times
              2 of 5 winning numbers 23 times
              1 of 5 winning numbers 6 times
              0 of 5 winning numbers 1 time

              Good luck to you.

                    RJ, do you check your combinations to see how they would have done in the next 3 or 4 drawings?

                      I do name and save every group I play and delete them after a year or so. 

                      Out of curiosity, I have gone back and checked a file or two occasionally and usually they don't do any better in later drawings.  For example the 20 lines I played at the beginning of this thread started off matching 3 for $7 and during the nine drawings since has only matched 0+1 three times and 1+1 one time.

                        Ohio Rolling Cash5 (5/39) is at $340K so I updated its profile files so I could pick some combinations to play.  Long term (1319 drawings), not much has changed since I last played it but when I isolated the last 200 drawings and compared their profiles with those of all the drawings there was quite a different.  This could be an indication of a short term trend.  This is something I will check when I pick combinations for MM, maybe check the last 100 drawings with all 342 to see if they're trending away from the norm.
