As I said before, my goal is to be able to capture five white balls within a field of twelve. But to date I have not been able to capture five within a field of twenty or even twenty-five. My best so far has been four numbers within a field of twenty-five – for a total of twice with two draws. So I have been updating my design these past few weeks. All design so far has been based on “outs” (the current number of draws a number is out of the draw mix). Since it appears we have some members who wish to choose their numbers from the calls, I will post my numbers today (while not “hot off the press”) at least a few days before the next draw. Good luck to all, I would love for someone from lottery Post to win the MEGA – (maybe Todd can tell us if any member has won before) - not name maybe but if he is aware of a member who won).

kjs703, If you think of it as a Keno game in which you are trying to match 5 of 12 in a field of 56 then your odds of having 12 numbers that have the winning 5 are 1:4823 and if you beat those odds then your odds of having the 5 winning numbers in the same lines are 1:792 which makes your over all odds of matching 5 by picking 12 numbers 1:3,819,816 which is the same as matching 5/5 in a field of 56.

Question for the "system developers".

What do you filter on?

According to Harry Schneider (Lottery Numbers Past,Present and Future)

not only do you filter on previous draws and odd/even, but also things like

Square, Fibonacci, Lucas....

Are y'all filtering on those items as well?

Because it was pointed out that my goal was flawed, I am back to using thirty numbers and

then filtering those thirty.

Good Luck all!

I keep filtering fairly simple for the time being. Sums, Ranges, Gaps, Spaces, etc. I could filter with more mathematical constraints but I try to look at the numebrs on the balls as simply labels as much as I can.

Stew12:

Could you give an example of your terms Sums, Ranges, Gaps and Spaces?

My current filter does:

1) All Five never drawn together before (for draws from June 2005)

2) All Five not odd/Even (check for 2/3 or 3/2 or 4/1 or 1/4)

3) No numbers equal per line

Soon to have the filters mentioned in the book (Prime, Square, Lucas....) which simple means no more than three numbers in those series of numbers.

I assume Sums means sum of all five numbers falling in Range of 100-200...

Not sure about gaps or Spaces

Thanks

My filtering is based on:

Sums - Sum of all digits combined. I typically filter out anything not between 100 and 200.

Ranges - Range from first number to last, i.e. 08-xx-xx-xx-52 has a range of 44. I typically filter out anything not between 23 and 52.

Spaces - Difference between each digit and the next in the pick, i.e. 05-10-22-34-44 has spaces of 5,12,12,10. I typically filter out anything with spaces greater than 25. For instance, 05-07-10-38-55 would not pass my filter since the 10-38 space is 28.

Gaps - Digits broken down into 5 range groups. For MM, A=1-11,B=12-22,C=23-33,D=34-44,E=45-56. I allow the following positions as so. Ticket = #1-#2-#3-#4-#5:

Pos.#1: AB Pos.#2: ABC Pos.#3: BCD Pos.#4: CDE Pos.#5: DE

Have you computed any statistics based on the Fibonacci series, Lucas Numbers or Perfect Squares? Maybe I'll program them into my software to see what I come up with as filter parameters.

The Book "The Lottery Numbers....."

suggestion was (from the top of my head, since book not here at work)

Prime Numbers -- not more than four

Squares -- not more than 3

Fionacci -- not more than 3

LUCAS -- not more than 3

For example for Squares

you have 4 9 16 25 36 49 (valid squares with MegaBall -- only up to 56)

For this series of numbers u should not have any more than 3 of the numbers for you selection line...

Again this is based off the book, and he proved it in the book for each series.....

I might get mine to start filtering for these...........

My problem is I need a new process for selecting the starting base numbers ........

Stew, Your system and mines have similarities, but with some different nomenclatures.

Sums - Sum of all 5 digits in the core combination. I filter out combinations with sums not between 95-195

Ranges - Range is from lowest to the highest number. I filter out combinations with ranges not between 28 to 53.

Spaces - I call them gaps and they are the difference between each numbers in a sorted combination. I filter out combinations with gaps greater than 25.

Gaps - I call them number distribution patterns. For MM,A=1-19, B=20-38 and C=39-56. I filter out combinations not in the following 8 patterns that have covered 76% of past winners.
