I don't know anything much about jackpot games and wheels, but, a person might want to wheel jackpot numbers in at least 3 ways.

-----
In the "Regular" way, pick some numbers and just wheel them and put 6 numbers per line (For a pick 6 lotto), lowest numbers on the left side and higher numbers on the right.

-------
Wheel (Groups of) numbers by each "Straight" lotto positions for example:
1 Position: 03, 09, 17, 20, 25, 26, 34.
2 Position  05, 08, 11, 16, 23, 45.
3 position  12, 18, 29, 32, 43, 54.
Etc.
Wheel the numbers so there will only be lines that have numbers from lowest to highest by each position, but only those particular numbers per each position so:
09 23 54 would be OK, but:
20 05 18 would not be OK.

3 position  12, 18, 29, 32, 43, 54.
Etc.
But the wheeled numbers (Lines) don't have to be wheeled from lowest numbers to highest numbers, so:
26 45 32 would be OK.

----------
Why? Well winning on those games is very hard and a person might need to resort to "Strange" techniques, might be some of the ways in which a person can increase his or her chances, there are possible reasons for that kind of wheels, but I don't like talking about jackpot games.
----
I don't know what the technical names might be for those kinds of wheels.
----
Can your new wheeler wheel in those 3 ways (One way (Wheel) at a time of course)?
-----
Lottery prediction techniques are more or less kind of universal, one just has to adapt them for use on a particular game.

-----
There might be more possible techniques for jackpot games, but there have to be as they are harder to win.

-----
This is just possible wheeling parts, there are also possible needed stats and possible filtering techniques.

------

"Breaking" jackpot games should be about the same as breaking pick 3 and 4 games, but one does need the right software(s) for sure and past draws (Both Ways), stats, filters, wheels and filters again.

I forgot to say, once that wheeling is done and a person checks the wheeled lines, sometimes a person might want to reformat those wheeled lines so the numbers on each line are fron lowest to highest.

This is just in case that a person wants to insert or put those lines into a lottery program and filter them or filter them some more, as a lottery program might have one or more filters that another program or filtered wheeler does not have.

But it should not be done (The reposition of the numbers from lowest to highest) as a matter of fact (Default) by the wheeler, as there also are (Or might be) one or more reasons as to why a person might want the wheeled numbers positioned in that way instead of from lowest to highest numbers.

Another thing:

A person at times or sometimes might want to filter lines in which the numbers are positioned like this:

Sorry! What I said before was wrong!

Instead the way to go is with Include (Allowed) filters by position:

Primary-Secondary Digits Filter by each position, for jackpot games.

Possible Primary #s would be 0 to 9.

Possible Secondary #s 0 to 9.

Of course, what you pick depends on a particular game.

For example, the 1 number is really 01 as there are no single digits per any positions, all numbers have a Primary (From 0 to 9) and a Secondary (From 0 to 9).

It would be more powerful and flexible in this way.

A jakpot number has to straight positions, the Lth or first position (Primary) and the Rth or second position (Secondary).

So there would be Primary and Secondary digits filters by each straight position of a game and wheel (Lines having duplicated numbers(Same Exact Numbers) if any, would be deleted).

For Example:

Positions:

----------

1 = Primaries:

0 With Secondaries 1, 4, 7 and 8

1 With Secondaries 0, 2 and 9

2 With Secondaries 1, 2, 3, 5, 7 and 9

--------

2 = Primaries:

0 + Secondaries 0 1 2 5 8

1 + Sec 0 1 2 4 5 8 9

2 + S ec X X X X X X X

3 + Sec X X X X X X

----------

3rd Position Include Digits:

Pri # X + Sec #s X X X X X X

Pri # X + Sec #s X X X X X X X

Pri # X + Sec #s X X X X X

Pri # X + Sec #s X X X

--------

Etc, Etc.

(Is the only way for Stats and Include-Exclude filters to work right).

Of course, the final made and or BetSlip printed numbers would not have any 0 Primary numbers.

(Is the only way for Stats and Include-Exclude filters to work right).

Of course, the final made and or BetSlip printed numbers would not have any 0 Primary numbers.

----------------------

Primary 0 Digits are also needed because of filtering that has to do with Primary and Secondary numbers.

As there are several filtration levels:

1 Position Primary numbers.

2 Positions Primary numbers.

3 Positions Primary numbers

Etc, depends on a game, for a pick 6 game:

Up to 6 positions Primary numbers.

+

1 Position Secondary numbers.

2 Positions Secondary numbers.

3 Positions Secondary numbers

Etc, depends on a game, for a pick 6 game:

Up to 6 positions Secondary numbers.

-----

And a possible mix of 1 to 9 positions of Primary to Secondary numbers.

----

Also complete 2 digits (Primary and Secondary) filters from 1 position, up to 9 positions (The upper end (Positions) depends on a game).

----------

1 Position = Single digits (Digit Single) Numbers (Digits + Patterns (Odd, Even, High, Low, In, Out Etc).

2 Positions = Primary and or Secondary Digits Pairs (Digits-Numbers, Sums, Roots, LDS (LDR), Widths, High-Low, Even-Odd, In-Out, Difference filters, Etc).

3 Positions = Primary and or Secondary Digits Triads (Digits-Numbers, Sums, Roots, LDS (LDR), Widths, High-Low, Even-Odd, In-Out, Difference filters, Etc).

4 Positions = Primary and or Secondary Digits Quads (Digits-Numbers, Sums, Roots, LDS (LDR), Widths, High-Low, Even-Odd, In-Out, Difference filters, Etc).

5 Positions = Primary and or Secondary Digits Quintos (Digits-Numbers, Sums, Roots, LDS (LDR), Widths, High-Low, Even-Odd, In-Out, Etc).

6 Positions (Full Complete Number for a pick 6 game) = Primary and or Secondary Digits Sextos (Digits-Numbers, Sums, Roots, LDS (LDR),  Widths, High-Low, Even-Odd, In-Out, Etc).

7 Positions = Primary and or Secondary Digits Septos (Digits-Numbers, Sums, Roots, LDS (LDR), High-Low, Even-Odd, In-Out, Etc).

8 Positions = Primary and or Secondary Digits Octos (Digits-Numbers, Sums, Roots, LDS (LDR), High-Low, Even-Odd, In-Out, Etc).

9 Positions = Primary and or Secondary Digits Nanos (Digits-Numbers, Sums, Roots, LDS (LDR), High-Low, Even-Odd, In-Out, Etc).

----------

The above possible filtration levels deal with:

Primary digits to primary digits.

Secondary digits to secondary digits.

Primar(ies) to secondary(ies).

Secondary(ies) to primary(ies).

And complete 2 digits number(s) to complete 2 digits number(s).

I don't know how clear that is, it might not be understood(?).

Maybe I made mistakes of some kinds, I don't know!

----------------

By the way those were Horizontal (Normal) filter techniques only!

There are also Vertical filter techniques and other kinds.

What is dynamic covering?  I think of a wheel as a fixed covering of the possible combinations of a set of numbers.

It is something available to every Gold and Platinum member at Lottery Post.

I call it what I believe may be a more common term, a filter, and I call the result a custom wheel (instead of a dynamic covering).

You can create a custom wheel (dynamic covering) by first choosing any Full Wheel from the Wheels page.

Then, the last option you see, just above the Create Wheel button, is a Filters button.  Click that button to reveal the extensive filters available.

Anybody (not just premium members) can take a look at all the filters available.  Lantern helped to create many of them.

In the final output, you can see not only the final ticket numbers in your custom wheel, but you can also see the degree to which it is a balanced wheel, and the exact number distribution throughout the wheel.

Todd, I am not talking about filtering tickets from a full wheel. This is something very common and old fashioned with its good a bad parts. What is constructed by filtering a full wheel is indeed a custom wheel. However the term 'dynamic covering' has nothing to do with this approach. We do not filter out tickets here at all. In a dynamic covering we conform our tickets to pass our filters whilst maintaining the guarantee offered by the abbreviated covering. In fact, the dynamic covering has nothing to do with full wheels in first place. We don't have to mislead the readers on these terms. A dynamic covering is completely different to a custom wheel.

Lantern,

I got really confused with all these posts and I can't say I really understood what was the point of these. However I'll comment on some aspects you mention here.

First you say:

"-----
In the "Regular" way, pick some numbers and just wheel them and put 6 numbers per line (For a pick 6 lotto), lowest numbers on the left side and  higher numbers on the right.

-------
Wheel (Groups of) numbers by each "Straight" lotto positions for example:
1 Position: 03, 09, 17, 20, 25, 26, 34.
2 Position  05, 08, 11, 16, 23, 45.
3 position  12, 18, 29, 32, 43, 54.
Etc.
Wheel the numbers so there will only be lines that have numbers from lowest to highest by each position, but only those particular numbers per      each position so:
09 23 54 would be OK, but:
20 05 18 would not be OK.

"

WG does none of the above because is not a wheeler. It is an optimizer and constructs a covering on demand. It does the regular part during the optimization in which ever way it fits best for the benefit of the covering. Thus, even if you import an initial covering, the outcome will not be the same covering with the applied numbers if WG has detected improvements.

Similarly, the groups of numbers in WG will be added as a filter by the means of WG filters; not the usual filtering you know about. This approach is again completely different to predefined existing grouped coverings where you assign your own numbers in each group and apply them to the fixed grouped covering.

In short, WG does something completely different from what you have been aware of till now. A completely new approach to wheeling. Actually its not even wheeling; it is constructing optimal coverings on demand for each particular situation.

You also state this:

"I forgot to say, once that wheeling is done and a person checks the wheeled lines, sometimes a person might want to reformat those wheeled lines so the numbers on each line are fron lowest to highest.

This is just in case that a person wants to insert or put those lines into a lottery program and filter them or filter them some more, as a lottery program might have one or more filters that another program or filtered wheeler does not have.

But it should not be done (The reposition of the numbers from lowest to highest) as a matter of fact (Default) by the wheeler, as there also are (Or might be) one or more reasons as to why a person might want the wheeled numbers positioned in that way instead of from lowest to highest numbers.
"

Assuming we have constructed a wheel to play, we are not supposed to do anything more on this wheel. We simply go and play the tickets. Filtering a wheel by the traditional means of filters is pointless.

I'm not sure why you say this Lantern. I believe the example I display in this thread is very clear and informative of what we try to achieve here. The program simply makes this idea a reality. What confuses you so much?

Some or many people should have good use for your program.

My prediction techniques use other ways, to each, their own.

You are probably one of the best lottery programmers or the best, we just don't see the lottery in the same way and that is OK with me, no big deal.
