I use this system to pick numbers for the Ohio Classic Lotto for the last four drawings since it started having record size jackpots and got a match4 even though I couldn't get a match3 the other times.  This has encouraged me to keep trying and be ready when the top distribution patterns come up again.  I guess it comes down to finding a method of picking your numbers that you like and stick with it until you find something you like better.  I'll continued to use the systems I described in the first part of this thread and hope I get lucky.

          RJOh,

           I for one have seen your efforts in the Challenges, and also know your willing to share with others your knowledge of the game and your system. There are a lot of players here at LP and I've seen the closeness that has developed. You and other members of LP are to be commended for your thoughts and examples that you've shown to others throughout your tenure. I do truly hope it is you that wins the Jackpot ande it comes on the heels of one of your examples.

                                                                                                           Good luck....!     

        I Agree!I Agree!I Agree! I could not have worded it better myself. I have learned so much since I've come to this website. If it wasn't for those pesky things called, rest & responsibility I would be on this site until I've read every post and won a few jackpots.

          Rjoh: I am having trouble finding your past predictions when they are not here in this thread.

          Could you please still post them here.

          Thanks

            RJ,

            Did you actually play all these 20 lines? If so, how many were Quick Picks?

              Yes I played all of them and didn't win anything.  All of them were generated using parameters I picked and none of them were QPs.  I don't play QPs unless I'm in a hurry and want to play a couple of lines just to be in the game.

                Any conclusions after 11 months of diligent work Type, RJOh?

                  Yes, the results of predictions I posted in this thread have lead me to the obvious conclusion that my system hasn't done much better than I might have expected picking combinations randomly.  Even when the winning combinations were within the parameters of my system I didn't see any appreciable improvement in my winnings so I stopped posting them here but I continue posting the first ten on the prediction board. 

                  Good luck to those who have followed this thread, I hope one of us win big with MegaMillions sooner or later.

                    DON'T YOU THINK THIS THREAD IS GETTING ENTIRELY TOO LONG ??? !!! 

                    WHY NOT START A NEW THREAD FOR POWERBALL AND MEGAMILLIONS ???  -"DEVELOPING A WINNING STRATEGY FOR PB AND MM - PART II". 

                    IT WOULD BE EASIER TO SEARCH THROUGH THE THREAD FOR PEARLS OF PB/MM WISDOM.

                          Maybe, if we all come to the same conclusion, maybe we would all start sharing ideas without fear of winning the jackpot with other people.

                          Some LP members say they don't mind sharing ideas about Pick3 and Pick4 strategies because the payouts are the same regardless of the number of winners.  I feel the same about jackpot games because regardless of the parameters I use to pick my numbers, there are thousands of possibilities and I'm only picking 10-20 of them.  For example for the last drawing I compared the last 428 winners with themselves and 80% matched:
                          0 = 246-277
                          1 = 121-152
                          2 = 17-30
                          3 = 0-2
                          4 = 0
                          total hits = 176-207
                          positional hits = 53-109
                          decades = 3-4
                          sums = 95-190
                          gaps between numbers = 1-25
                          range of combinations = 27-52

                          I used those parameters with a list of 20 megaballs to pick my lines to play.
                          The winning combination was 14 35 44 52 56 +22 which matched:
                          0 = 256
                          1 = 146
                          2 = 25
                          3 = 1
                          4 = 0
                          total hits = 199
                          positional hits = 65
                          decade = 4
                          sum = 204
                          gaps between numbers = 4-18
                          range of combination = 40

                          The winning combination was within the parameters I used except the one for sums and the best I did with 20 lines was a couple of 2+0 and a 0+1 for $2.  I even used number distribution patterns which I mentioned earlier in this thread.

                            Do you remember why you discarded 1,5,7,9,20,28,31,36,51 (nine numbers)

                            Probably after I set my parameters  I had 20 lines before those numbers were in a combination that was acceptable.  Usually my parameters are wide enough with a pool of 56 numbers such that 9 combinations are picked fairly quickly but it hard to get 10 or 11 that fit within those parameters.  Some times I reduce the number pool size but I don't remember doing that in that case.

                              DON'T YOU THINK THIS THREAD IS GETTING ENTIRELY TOO LONG ??? !!! 

                              WHY NOT START A NEW THREAD FOR POWERBALL AND MEGAMILLIONS ???  -"DEVELOPING A WINNING STRATEGY FOR PB AND MM - PART II". 

                              IT WOULD BE EASIER TO SEARCH THROUGH THE THREAD FOR PEARLS OF PB/MM WISDOM.

                              As stated in one of my earlier post, having seen no appreciable improvements in my winnings since starting this thread, I've stopped posting to it.  I've exploited every idea I've had and can't think of anything new to add.

                              My ideas about number distribution patterns, hit counts, sums and the general description of 80% of past winners and etc. showed promised but I was never able to combine them to come up with a big winner but I will continue trying.

                              A new thread about developing a winning strategy for PowerBall sounds like a worth while project but it should be done by someone who tracks and plays PB regularly as I did with MM.  I haven't traveled out of state to play PB in more than a year, maybe you could start that new thread.  Good luck to you.
