It might be interesting to see if there are patterns to be seen in the numbers of digits per drawing, I hadnt really even considered this vein of inquiry until you brought it up, interesting surely.

I did that for the last 459 MegaMillions drawings and came up with figures in my previous post.

DD/draw
  1: 0
  2: 0
  3: 1
  4: 31
  5: 124
  6: 183
  7: 97
  8: 22
  9: 1

TD/draw
  1: 0
  2: 0
  3: 0
  4: 0
  5: 0
  6: 1
  7: 9
  8: 61
  9: 208
 10: 180

DC/draw
 1: 0
 2: 16
 3: 140
 4: 252
 5: 51
 6: 0
 7: 0
 8: 0
 9: 0

    Last night winning numbers.
                                       SUM DD TD DC
     TUE 11/17/09 - 08 22 27 49 50 +28 156  7  9  4

    With odds of 1:5,117,639 of getting a 5+0 none of *17,152,862 matched 5.

    Match 0 = 265-298        292
    Match 1 = 134-168        140
    Match 2 = 19-31           25
    Match 3 = 1-3              2
    Match 4 = 0                0
    Match 5 = 0                0
    Sums = 95-190            156
    Range = 27-53             43
    (DD) = 5-7                 7
    (TD) = 9-10                9
    (DC) = 3-4                 4

    The winning numbers were within the rules/parameters set on my RNG and the best I did with 10 lines was a 2+0.  I don't feel bad since a pool of over *17M combinations only matched 4.  I will continue to hone in on a winner.  Good luck if you play.

    *Sales according to LottoReport website.

      There is a trend or pattern to sums....

       

      The sum 10-20-2009 was 155 and the following sum was 230

       

      where as

       

      the sum for 11-13-2009 was 218 and the following sum was 156.

          If you've kept a file of all the winning combinations and their dates then you've kept tabs on their sums, it's just a matter of how you analyzed the data.  I'm always looking for ways to mine my data file for more useful information.  The results are dynamic so I always update the data for a new analysis before picking combinations for the next drawing.

            (DC) = 3-4                 3

            Last night I posted the first 10 combinations I played on the prediction board and only had a 0+1.  The single digit numbers 3, 4, and 7 took me out of the game, they reduced TD to 7 and lowered the sum to 86 which were outside the parameters I used.  The 3 and 56 had a range of 54 which also was outside my parameters.  Even if all the numbers had been in the number pool, 3, 4 and 7 would have never been on the same line and neither would 3 and 56 using those parameters.   Well, I get another chance Tuesday, good luck if you're playing too.

            *parameters based on the last 460 MM drawings compared to themselves and using the top 80% results.

              When you start trying to chop down tens of 1000s of combos (or more) into something affordable you can play, you find that the first 50% elimination was fairly easy and the more you try to cut down, the more complex and subtle the rules get.

              In neo-conned Amerika, bank robs you.

                According to the counters in my RNG, it usually looks at 5-10 thousands combinations before picking 50-100 within the parameters I set of which I pick 10-20 to play.  One of these days when I have the time to waste, I'm going to write a program to check all 5/56 (3,819,916) combinations to get an idea of the real number of combinations I could pick from within the parameters I set. 

                *Note: Even checking 30 lines per seconds, it would take over 30 computer hours, maybe I'll wait till I have a faster computer or learn how to write faster programs.

                  Same thing happened to me when I first started coding. It would take 1/2 hour to run through my p3/p4 systems. I knew I wouldn't be able to do anything with larger games, at that speed. I figured out steps that were redundant or wasting time and changed them. Especially back then, that cost le$$ than getting a faster machine.

                  Though at over 3 million combos, it may come down to sampling and luck.

                    A newer faster computer is in my future since I don't like to get more than two upgrades behind with my OS.  My HP with XP is maxed out with 1GB of memory and the cheapest Windows7 computer comes with 2GB.  I'll be checking out Office Depot this Black Friday, it's rumored that they will have a HP G71-343US for $450. That's an OS upgrade, 4x memory, bigger HD and a faster computer in one package.

                      We upgraded a couple of years ago and the response time was very significant. We had one program that took an hour on the old computer that only took 20mins to complete on the new one. I hope our next HP will have be even faster.

                        Every time I've upgraded by buying a new computer, I've  gotten a lot more computer with a lot more computing power for about the same or less than I spent for my previous computer.  I didn't make it to Office Depot BF sale so I guess I'll be waiting for their next big sale.

                          Be careful.  The new computers today do not come with parrell or serial ports.  If you get one of these you will need a new printer and monitor also.  I found this out the hard way.  USB seems to be the wave of the future.

                            I've noticed and also some of the new lap tops don't have a dial-up modem which I need.  I usually check the specs on a model before I go shopping for it.  Changing my printer won't bother me since replacing the ink cartridges  for it cost more than it worth.

                              Picking 20 lines for tonight's drawing from the following numbers.

                              WB:02 03 06 09 10 12 13 15 17 18 21 22 24 25 28 31 33 34 35 40 42 44 46 48 51 52 53 54
                              MB:02 07 08 15 19 20 21 22 24 25 28 31 33 35 36 38 39 42 43 44

                              Good luck if you're playing.
