Since I only had two of the winning numbers in my pool for the last MM drawing, tonight I will pick 20 combinations from all 56 numbers,*limited only by the parameters.  The 56 numbers cover the last 40 drawings so I will fill in the hit and count parameters accordingly:

Number   count at hit   last draw hit
  1         1 - 1          1 - 11
  2         2 - 4          1 - 12
  3         3 - 6          2 - 21
  4         4 - 9          4 - 28
  5         5 - 16         8 - 40

I will fill in the hit and match parameters as follows:

HITS FOR LAST 335 DRAWINGS
 MATCH  0 = 192-222
 MATCH  1 = 97-122
 MATCH  2 = 12-24
 MATCH  3 = 0-2
 MATCH  4 = 0
 MATCH  5 = 0

Instead of all 46 numbers, I will pick 15-20 bonus numbers from these 27 that have not hit with three numbers in the combinations more than twice during the last 335 drawings:
01 02 03 04 05 06 08 09 10 11 12 15 17 20 21 26 29 33 35 36 38 39 40 41 42 44 46

In addition to not repeating any gap patterns of past drawings, I will enter the same distribution patterns and parameters used for the previous two drawings with some adjustments for the 335 drawings since the last matrix change.

*parameters limits may exclude some numbers from being picked.

Good luck to any LP members who play MM tonight.

    I ran my RNG program and picked 20 combinations well within the stated parameters.  Surprisingly, all but 2 of the 56 numbers were in the 20 lines which make me wonder if the parameters could have been more restrictive.

    If I get a chance before making out my play slips for the drawing I may recheck those parameters and rerun the  program using a different seed number.

      Could you send me your spreadsheet program?

      Doc Tor

      I would love to share my app, but it isn't a spreadsheet.  It's a C# Windows application with 4000+ lines of code.  The interface is not user friendly at this point, most of it slapped together piece by piece.  I'm working on a version 2 of the software, and when that is done it will be much more easy to share & explain.

        Good luck tonight RJ. 

        If I were pick numbers for MM tonight, I would use the top 10 and bottom 11 due (for a total of 21 tickets).  We are trying the 2if2 wheel tomorrow for PB (because of it's excellent distribution, thanks Stack), so I would use that one for MM tonight as well.  21 numbers can be wheeled in a 2if2 for 21 tickets.

        Top 10 due: 7,17,20,30,32,35,52,53,55,56

        Bottom 11 due: 1,4,6,15,23,27,31,34,37,48,49

        I would also use 10 MM numbers, played twice each (one number 3 times) distributed over the 21 tickets.

        Top 10 MM numbers due: 9,12,15,18,24,25,29,35,41,45

        Numbers were calculated with a pool size of 266 drawings.

        Good luck to all in MM tonight.

          I didn't get a chance to run my RNG again so I'm stuck with the 20 lines it picked earlier today and here they are:

          10 13 37 43 45 +33
          15 25 30 52 56 +01
          12 18 34 46 55 +12
          05 20 33 36 49 +06
          17 26 40 41 54 +26
          03 28 29 35 53 +03
          08 27 38 39 51 +42
          04 15 31 33 50 +35
          13 18 32 48 52 +29
          01 16 38 45 48 +44
          09 21 23 28 40 +08
          02 19 23 27 42 +02
          16 20 31 41 44 +40
          07 19 32 34 35 +11
          11 12 21 36 43 +21
          10 11 24 42 54 +36
          09 29 46 50 56 +05
          07 26 30 39 55 +20
          03 25 37 44 49 +10
          06 22 42 45 51 +15

          I posted the first 10 on the prediction and played them all.  I'll know if I won anything in about 25 minutes when the drawing results are posted as USAMega.

              I had three 2+0's, nothing major.

              Good work on the 1+1 RJ!

                  Good work on the 1+1 RJ!

                  You might have had a 2+1 had you used 21 bonus numbers once instead 10 numbers several times and I might have had a 2+1 also if I had used less core(WB) numbers and had more combinations of twos.  These are the kinds of rules I'm trying to establish for my system.

                    Had I used 21 bonus balls, I would have included the 2 since I ranked it 13th of 'most due'.  That would have put it on ticket #13 for me (since I just ordered the MB numbers straight), and picked up a 1+1.

                    Well RJ, the 1+1 odds are 1:141, so it isn't all a loss!

                    I have been trying to figure out which is best for our pool, playing all 42 PB numbers at least once each, or pick half the numbers and play them twice, etc.  We went with 16 PB numbers for tomorrow, spread out 3 times each over 49 tickets (+1 more time for the lucky #41 ball).  We'll see how that works I guess.

                      Take your time, improve your efficiency. I see losing the lottery as a win because I get more data.

                        Thanks, I missed it.  I feel better knowing that I used 54 of 56 numbers and didn't eliminate one of the winning numbers.

                          My RNG can be set to tries to pick every number in the pool at least once before picking any number twice and to pick combinations that match combinations already picked the least.  I may adjust or eliminate those features for this Friday drawing.
