Gap Strategy
Workout: GNR V2
Playing Two 4-point structures - ABDF and CDEF
Wheeled 12 numbers for 5 combinations.

ABDF
Numbers; 1.2.5.10.11.17.34.36.39.51.52.56

5.10.39.52.56+3
1.2.10.34.51+10
2.5.11.36.52+29
1.11.17.39.56+30

24.28.38.45.51+4
24.30.33.44.56+11
20.33.45.51.54+28
28.33.38.47.54+33
20.30.44.47.56+44

Since I'm the only person using gap strategy to generate
numbers, I'll skip the nitty gritty details.

    Good luck, if there's a big winner among them after tomorrow night drawing, then there are going to a be a lot of members who will want to know all about the nitty gritty details.

      I still think we're due for a big $300M plus jackpot, or barring that, at least a $200M one.

      I'm not sure if anyone has stats, but I'm wondering if anyone knows what the average MM jackpot is?

      Sorry to hijack the thread....

        Gap strategy provides multiple data streams to aid the guesswork.

        I reviewed the data and made my choices.
        You could view the same data and make same or different choices.
        Another player could make the same or different choices.

        'Know thyself'

        Over the years, I've made some good choices and won a few bucks.
        But, I've made a lot of bad choices, too.

        Hopefully, I've made a few correct choices for tonight.
        If not, there is another drawing coming up on Friday!

          Finally got all the drawing results onto my spreadsheet (since the last matrix change) and begun to analyze them in totality. It's not finished yet. But I decided to play ABDF (Actually ABDDF) on five tries for tonight's drawing. lines 1,3 and 5 were all the same except for the MBs. Ditto lines 2 and 4. I don't expect any magic but when complete my analysis incorporating the gap strategy, we'll see what happens. It should take a couple weeks.

          Good luck. We'll see how we do then I'll see if I can add some input.

              The Ohio website is showing the MM jackpot reset to $12M, so someone must have won tonight.  A few more wins under $25M like in the couple of weeks, the average 2008 MM jackpot is going to be under $100M.

                Interesting Analysis!

                I went back to review your gap strategy.  Very in depth.
                It didn't take long for me to get lost.  Guess I'll have to
                spend a little time analyzing the methods involved. 
                That is of course, when I get some time!

                One question I do have:  For MM, do you use the following breakdown?
                9 A numbers (1-9), 10 B numbers (10-19), 10 C numbers (20-29),
                10 D numbers (30-39), 10 E numbers (40-49) and 10 F numbers (50-59).


                Seems to me you might want to keep each set even.
                Either have eight sets of seven numbers (A,B,C,D,E,F,G,H)
                OR have seven sets of eight numbers (A,B,C,D,E,F,G)
                Since I am not that familiar with your system and methods,
                I'm assuming that it probably doesn't make any difference!

                Your system is pretty interesting in that it captured 4 numbers
                out of 22 for the 9/16/08 draw!  Can't argue with success!

                Best of Luck!

                  Review and comments

                  0912 01.12.14.25.35+38  ABBCD  ABCD
                  0916 13.24.39.51.51+44  BCDFF  BCDF

                  My gap strategy workout suggested 4-point structures ABDF and CDEF
                  would be good plays.

                  ABDF
                  A numbers: None, I chose 1,2,5
                  B numbers: 13. I chose 10.11.17
                  D numbers: 39. I chose 34.36.39
                  F numbers: 51.52. I chose 51.52.56

                  Had 3 of the numbers, but not on the same line.
                  No wins.

                  CDEF

                  I chose 24 and 51. Both hit but no wins.

                  Powerball: 44

                  Invested $10, won $2

                  An advantage of gap strategy is that you can go back and determine precisely
                  where you guessed wrong.

                  The jackpot was won in Ohio.

                  This means I won't be in the Mega Millions game for the next several draws.

                  As an aside, I read the Texas Lottery Commission meeting minutes. MM is
                  on the public and non-public agendas every month.

                  Lottery profits are down and the commission is looking to increase them
                  by reducing prize payouts and printing millions more worthless scratch tickets.

                  While there hasn't been any open talk of change, the frequency in which the MM jackpots
                  are being won suggests the game might be under review.

                  There's been no mention of any survey.

                  To be a lottery manager, you have to know how to use 'greed' to maximum advantage. Those
                  folks want $100, $200, $300 million jackpots. I think it's safe to say that they are
                  probably working overtime trying to find a way to make the game harder to win.

                  Thanks for your interest.

                    Bobby, you're right. People always want $100, 200, 300 million jackpots. I'm one of them. Their reasoning, for the most part, is if they wanted a smaller jackpot they'd play their state's individual JP game. The whole idea behind multi-state lotteries is to decrease the chances of the numbers being picked over a large population demographic, thus propelling the JP amount to levels well beyond local lotteries.
