I am “re-thinking” the way the computer program selects the base numbers.

I believe that if the program can consistently selected at least four (five is better) of the drawn numbers,

then filtering and wheeling those base number will produce a winning combination.

 

As You have seen, I rarely get the Mega Ball correct – in fact I usually joke that if I selected the Mega Ball – it is guaranteed not to be selected.

 

Those times my program has managed to have all five numbers, has also been the times when I raised the base to forty numbers. 

Forty numbers is way too many base numbers to realistically wheel twenty tickets and expect to a three or more wheel…

Possible but not consistent.

My Goal is to consistently have all five numbers in a base of under thirty, with the ideal of a base of twenty.

        I'm going to reduce my pool of WB numbers from 45 to 30 and see what I can do with that.  According to my different algorithms, DUE balls show up in larger amounts in the first 30 picks than with other methods.  Compared to the method I have been using to chose 45 balls, these are the statistics:

        Followers w/Siblings (old method):

        Matched ALL: 2.68% (10 out of 373 evaluated)
        Matched 3+:  47.1% (176 out of 373 evaluated)

        Due (new method):

        Matched ALL: 4.82% (18 out of 373 evaluated)
        Matched 3+:  55.4% (207 out of 373 evaluated)

        Based on these stats, I'll be using Due balls for both the WB's as well as the MB's.

        Total picks are 30 WB's, 20 MB's.  I start with 40 tickets and filter based on Sums, Ranges, Spaces and Gaps as I mentioned earlier in this thread.

        My picks for Tuesday 2/24 with the new criteria:

        1. 02-03-31-35-36 +21
        2. 03-15-22-30-56 +33
        3. 08-12-25-35-56 +17
        4. 08-15-36-44-51 +35
        5. 08-22-39-43-53 +36
        6. 10-13-36-43-44 +37
        7. 10-15-19-25-39 +26
        8. 10-16-22-31-48 +44
        9. 11-16-35-39-48 +4
        10. 11-25-31-43-56 +12
        11. 12-13-30-39-50 +41
        12. 12-14-34-43-48 +16
        13. 12-17-31-44-53 +38
        14. 13-15-20-35-53 +22
        15. 13-22-31-34-51 +34

          All the drawings within a week, for this game, it's two trials. Usually have 4 different predictions going on each from a different method, varies in 10 - 20 lines per methods.

          Have you found instances where the four different methods have some lines in common?

              For 02/24/09

              For something a little different....

              I select twenty lines off a base of twenty numbers.

              My hope is all five numbers are within that base of twenty.

              My expectation is no more than three numbers will be within the base of twenty.

              I have included a base of thirty and forty --to see where all five numbers will hit...

              Thirty
              1-2-5-7-9-12-13-16-17-19
              20-21-23-24-25-27-28-31-33-36
              37-39-40-41-42-45-49-51-53-55
              Forty
              1-2-3-5-7-9-11-12-13-14
              16-17-18-19-20-21-22-23-24-25
              27-28-29-30-31-33-36-37-38-39
              40-41-42-45-48-49-50-51-53-55

              The twenty tickets are based on the twenty numbers
              Twenty

              Of course my mega numbers are lousy, but included

                I have a routine in my lottery program that looks at each winning combination and uses the draw history of each number to color code it.  It uses the average or median number of drawings a number has hit in the past and if it hasn't hit in as many drawings it's colored blue(cold), if it has hit twice or more during that time then it's colored red(hot) or yellow(very hot).  Other numbers are colored green(normal) which has hit once in as many drawings. 

                I noticed recently that more blue numbers were hitting and for 01/30/09 and 01/09/09, all the winning numbers were blue, so I played only blue numbers in the last two drawings which meant skipping numbers that hit in the previous 6 or 7 drawings. 

                Stew is doing something similar to pick his WB number pool but he defines them as due numbers.  He's using 30 due numbers and I'm using 23 cold(blue) and 6 normal(green) numbers that will be blue if they don't hit tonight.  I'm picking my MB pool the same way as I have in the past.  I set parameters such as sums, ranges ,gaps and distribution patterns same as I have in the past also.

                These are the numbers in my pools for tonight's drawing 02/24/2009:

                WB:03 05 06 07 08 10 11 13 14 16 17 19 20 22 24 26 30 32 34 35 39 42 44 46 48 49 50 52 54

                MB:01 02 05 07 08 10 11 14 15 19 24 25 27 29 30 39 40 42 43 44


                     1. 10 11 14 17 50 +19
                     2. 06 19 22 35 46 +24
                     3. 03 24 30 42 48 +14
                     4. 07 16 20 26 39 +11
