Ok LottoL:

Thank you for sharing your chart....

You stated:

For MM Friday Draws, try using numbers which were last drawn on a Tuesday.
For MM Tuesday Draws, try using numbers which were last drawn on a Friday.

(Or Vice Versa)

I chose the vice versa - matching Tuesday to Tuesday -- so would have been off as well.

I might consider the Tuesday/Friday selction criteria in my re-design ....

I am building a program to do all the selection based on a "push of a button"

Meaning no human interference in the selection.  so far my stats go matches 3,4,4,3,2,3,3

To date I have not managed to snag all five numbers within my base range of numbers.

Once, I have achieved 5 matches (for at least two draws) i will indeed share the system of selection.

It seems like there might be a correlation between the size of the Jackpot
and last drawn TUE or FRI numbers, but I'm still working on that.

Best Of Luck,

LottoL

By the way, as long as I have been analyzing this lottery, it seems to me that
four numbers are relatively predictable (given the right circumstances/criteria),
but the elusive fifth number looks extremely hard to identify.

Thanks to LottoL for the Heads up on the Tuesday/Friday or Friday/Tuesday scenario.
I decided to verify this scenario and see if it would provide any advantage to us
When selecting our base numbers to choose from.  I was pleasantly surprised that
It does provide a nice advantage and I plan to include it into my selection
Process for Mega Numbers.

To provide you with the statistical results, I must explain some things and
I hope I can make it clear to everyone.  The statistics are based on the
6/24/2005 draw (which was a Friday) to the 12/16/2008 draw which was a Tuesday.
The 6/24/2005 draw was listed as Game 1 and the 12/16/2008 draw was
listed as Game 364.  Based on the storage of this data all Odd Number
Games are a Friday Draw and all Even number games are a Tuesday draw.

Now going back to some basic math…we know
Any two even (or two odd) numbers summed (or subtracted) result in an even number.
Any even and an odd number summed (or subtracted) result in an odd number.
Examples:
5-2=3 Odd minus Even is Odd
7-5=2  So Odd minus Odd is Even
6-2=4  Even minus Even is Even
6-3=3 Even minus Odd is Odd

Since the data is stored with Odd Number Game numbers being a Friday Draw
And the Even Number Game Numbers being a Tuesday Draw.
AND
Draw Outs are calculated based on Current Game Number minus Last Game Number
We can make this claim:

When the number of Draws Out is an Odd Number --
you have Friday/Tuesday or Tuesday/Friday scenario.

When the number of Draws Out is an Even Number --
you have Friday/Friday or Tuesday/Tuesday scenario.

Here are those statistics:

 ODD5 ODD4 ODD3 ODD2 ODD1 EVEN5 EVEN4 EVEN3 EVEN2 EVEN1 14 58 121 108 54 9 54 108 121 58

Broken down they mean
53% of the time a draw will contain 3 or more numbers with
the Friday/Tuesday or Tuesday/Friday scenario.
83% of the time a draw will contain 2 or more numbers with
the Friday/Tuesday or Tuesday/Friday scenario.

Here is a small sample of recent Games:

 MEGAGAME CntPos1_ODD CntPos2_ODD CntPos3_ODD CntPos4_ODD CntPos5_ODD CntALL_ODD CntPos1_EVEN CntPos2_EVEN CntPos3_EVEN CntPos4_EVEN CntPos5_EVEN CntALL_EVEN 364 1 1 1 1 0 4 0 0 0 0 1 1 363 0 1 0 0 0 1 1 0 1 1 1 4 362 0 1 1 1 1 4 1 0 0 0 0 1 361 1 1 0 1 1 4 0 0 1 0 0 1 360 0 1 0 1 0 2 1 0 1 0 1 3 359 1 0 0 1 1 3 0 1 1 0 0 2 358 1 1 1 0 1 4 0 0 0 1 0 1 357 0 1 1 1 0 3 1 0 0 0 1 2 356 0 1 0 1 1 3 1 0 1 0 0 2 355 0 1 1 1 0 3 1 0 0 0 1 2

Hope these help someone

mdmegaamillplyr,

I think what kjs703 is saying if you have all 364 drawings since the last matrix change and they are in order by date then all the even # records are on Tuesday and the odd # records are on Friday.  I've had a routine in my lottery program to change the dates into days and color them according so I can see if I had all the drawings and dates in my files.  Today I added a feature to look at a files for a particular day.  I'll be creating two test files, one for Tuesday and one for Friday and see if there are any differences between them, each will have 182 drawings.

rec# day   date      numbers        MB

It's probably easier to understand if you're using a software/system that you know.

Thanks RJOH that is correct.

How I have my past drawing data stored, each game is given a number.

I call that number the Game Number so the first draw data I have is

the drawing which happened on 6/24/05 -- so that drawing is called Game One

in my database.  The last drawing data I have in my database is 12/16/2008,

which is Game number 364... again this is how my database identifies it.

It just so happens (again in my database) an Odd Number Game Number represents a

Friday drawing, while an even number game number represents a Tuesday drawing.

BTW that was not by design, it just happen too work out that way, again in my database.

Because it did work out that way, I can have my program identify the drawing day based upon

whether that Game number is Odd or Even.

Sooooo moving on the what I call "draw outs" some people call "skips" or "gaps"....

I call a "draw out" as the number of Games (drawings) that a number is "out" of the drawing.

In other words, when was this number last selected within a drawing?

Example:

 GameNumber DrawDate DrawDay NUM1 NUM2 NUM3 NUM4 NUM5 BBall 364 12/16/2008 T 10 14 16 29 40 6 363 12/12/2008 F 10 16 19 27 48 25 362 12/9/2008 T 11 12 26 31 33 27 361 12/5/2008 F 21 27 46 52 55 14

In drawing 12/16/2008 (Game Number 364 -- my database identifier)

You have the Number "10" being selected.

the program then searches for the last time number "10" was selected (drawn).

That just happens to be drawing date 12/12/2008  (Game Number 363 -- my database identifier)

Sooo

The number "10" which was select in Game 364 and Game 363

has a "Draw Out" of "1" for Game 364

BTW number '16' also had a "Draw Out" of "1" for Game 364........

For the record number "10" was last drawn in Game 359 and number "16" was

last drawn for Game 348.

So for Game number 363 the number "10" had a draw out of 363 minus 359 or a "4"

AND for Game 363 the number "16" had a draw out of 363 minus 348 or a "15"...

That tells us for Game 364 the drawn number "10" and "16" were both "1" draw out

and since it the "draw out" number is Odd -- that for these two numbers -- were

drawn first on a Friday and then were drawn again on a Tuesday ... or as pointed out earlier

a Friday / Tuesday combination.

BTW for Game 363 (which was a Friday drawing) number "10" had a draw out of a "4"

which tells us the last game number "10" had been drawn was also a Friday.

Where as number "16" for Game 363 had been last drawn on a Tuesday -- because it's draw

out was 15 -- which is an Odd number.

Hope this makes sense now........

As I did an addtional check to see if the position of the drawn number could help us with the

Tuesday/Friday combination or Friday/Tuesday combination.  The anwser is yes, but only slightly.

Here are the results:

 POS 1 POS 2 POS 3 POS4 POS5 185 186 175 195 194

 0.5082 0.5109 0.4807 0.5357 0.5329 50% 51% 48% 53% 53%

 GameNumber DrawDate DrawDay NUM1 NUM2 NUM3 NUM4 NUM5 BBall 364 12/16/2008 T 10 14 16 29 40 6 363 12/12/2008 F 10 16 19 27 48 25

What this tells us is:

For Position 1 (game 364 that is Number "10")

50% of the time this drawn number will be a Friday/Tuesday combination or Tuesday/Friday combination.

For Position 2 (game 364 that is Number "14")

51% of the time this drawn number will be a Friday/Tuesday combination or Tuesday/Friday combination.

For Position 3 (game 364 that is Number "16")

48% of the time this drawn number will be a Friday/Tuesday combination or Tuesday/Friday combination.

For Position 4 (game 364 that is Number "29")

53% of the time this drawn number will be a Friday/Tuesday combination or Tuesday/Friday combination.

For Position 5 (game 364 that is Number "40")

53% of the time this drawn number will be a Friday/Tuesday combination or Tuesday/Friday combination.

So for Positions 2, 4 and 5 -- there is a slight better chance it will be F/T or T/F combination

Position 1 is 50/50

Position 3 is only 48%

==================

Still working on how to incorporate this in the selectingof base numbers...

More to come later......

Here are the numbers as of Tuesday 12/16/08 (Game 364)

The Friday Game 12/19/2008 (will be Game 365) so we are

looking for a Tuesday / Friday Combo.........

Since it is very rare that numbers are drawn three times in a row we can elimnate numbers 10 and 16.

Taking the "last Tuesday" numbers down to 29 (total of last draw day of Tuesday - which is 31)

I would suggest selecting twenty "Tuesday Numbers"  and ten "Friday Numbers"

For a total base of Thirty Numbers -- then filter those thirty

for your five number per row ticket.

Good Luck

Getting worst ever draw.  The really bad news is that I used the 12 numbers not in the above group in Maddog's MegaMillions challenge and matched 3, perhaps I should start picking my numbers to play that way.

Four Numbers in the Base Set of Thirty; however I was basis with number 16 --

having already been drawn twice. So only two numbers were used in the ticket lines.

Mega Ball still not selected.  So work still needs to be done on the selection.

Y'all have Happy Holidays -- won't be posting for at least a week.
