Looks like the ol' thread still has some life left in it, yet. Approve

Yep, I thought it would just fade into the past but every time someone asks a question, makes a remark or answers a question, it gets another reprieve for a month. Thumbs Up

    No, while my RNG does have a key numbers feature I've never used it to pick combinations because the smallest group I've ever felt might have numbers that might hit was ~30.  Last Friday I felt that a group of forty numbers might have the winning numbers so I played 20 lines using all those numbers and had three 2+0 and no bonus numbers at all.  When I noticed how the winning numbers had hit in previous drawings and the combination was within the parameters I had chosen, I decided to run a simulation to see if I might have picked the winning combinations picking combinations that way.

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

    Thanks for the response!
    The reason I was asking is because I think there is a high probability that numbers which have hit 49 times will get hit tonight.  Those numbers are 5 - 14 - 25 - 48.  I can make a pretty strong case for three of those.
    1.  48 would be a repeat - Repeats haven't hit in six draws, there probably due.
    2.  25 - By looking at the last 4 MM Jackpot winners there appears to be a small trend.

         50. 05/01/200909 16 24 40 43 MB = 35 $225 Million Winner
         51.
    05/15/2009
    07 12 24 36 48 MB = 27 $ 38 Million Winner
         52.
    05/29/2009
    23 30 36 39 48 MB = 34 $ 35 Million Winner
         53.
    07/07/2009 25 27 35 38 39 MB = 28 $133 Million Winner
         54. 08/25/2009 25 -> Possibility it could hit tonight.

      3.  14 - It's been the leader for new occurrances 7 consecutive times.  Will it lead an eigth time?
            It's time is due to change to a new leader, possibly 25 or 48.

    I don't have any type of simulation analysis, but if I did I would try it with the following set of
    numbers using the number 25 with each combination.  You can easily see where these
    numbers come from.  (2009 MM jackpot winners)

    02 - 07 - 09 - 10
    11 - 12 - 16 - 19
    21 - 22 - 23 - 24 - 25 - 26 - 27
    30 - 32 - 33 - 34 - 35 - 36 - 38 - 39 - 40
    43 - 46 - 48 - 50 - 52

    Best Of Luck!

      For those who have followed this thread, these are the 46 lines I picked out of the 109 and the bonus numbers assigned to them.  I finally decided to gamble on all 46 for a guaranteed $2 win.  I heard on the evening news if tonight's jackpot rolls Friday's jackpot could be $325M.

          I played 46 lines and got that desire out of my system (I think).  I'll wait until Friday to cash in my $2 winner when I pick up some more tickets.

                and you matched your predictions 100% ! from my end I am keeping 01-12-21-43 fixed, will allocate 5$ tomorrow (playing mega 1 twice) if i would be a "risk-taker" i would play 5 x mega ball: 01, 01 resonates well, no idea why:) it is esoteric feeling

                  I thought I was over the idea of playing all 46 bonus numbers but I got to thinking "how often do I get a chance to play for $325M".  A few years ago if PowerBall had been that high I would have driven to Indiana, stood in line to buy $50 worth of tickets and thought nothing of it. Now all I have to do is drive to town and there's no line.  I just may try it again but this time I would play all 56 core numbers too.

                      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.

                      I stopped posting to this thread hoping you or someone else might start a new thread about systems for MegaMillions or PowerBall or both but so far I've seen nothing.  There is definitely an interest in a discussion of the subject.  The mere mentioning of lottery system generates a lot of responses. 

                      Mean while I continue to tweak the system I used to pick combinations for MM and even expanded  it to play Ohio Classic Lotto and Rolling Cash5 when their jackpots were unusually high but with little or no success. 

                      I've picked 20 bonus numbers for tonight's MM drawing ( 03 02 25 31 35 27 46 44 22 36 41 34 16 33 37 13 04 28 15 06), now all I have to do is pick 20 lines to go with them and I'll be set to play.

                      Good luck to anyone who's playing tonight.

                        Although I've stopped posting to this thread I'm still working a better system for picking combinations to play in the MegaMillions game.  Tonight I'm going with 21 lines, my RNG tried to use each number twice and got into a loop at 21 lines because it couldn't fine any more combinations that fit the new rules I used with the numbers it had left.  These are the lines for those who are interested.

                          I guess the new rules didn't go far enough.

                           * you don't need to buy more tickets, just buy a winning ticket *

                            Hello, expert,

                            So whats the best way to hit 4 out of 6 in the mega millions you refering to the california one?

                            5 plus the mega if the bonus # is not in the wheeling how do you choose that one?

                              WHoops forgot to tell you the amount of tickets would be about anywhere from 250 - 500 tickets
