So it is a RNG, Does it wheel the chosen numbers and makes lines around the filters?

It has a RNG feature, but right now RNG-ing and filtering are broken into 2 sections.  I'm going to move RNG to its own tab and encorporate filtering into a one-stop-shop, but for now the sections look like so:

This tab currently has a few tools I use, that may or may not get encorporated into a final product.  The pattern creator uses an algoritm I've been testing out for developing even distributions for larger ticket purchases, where you might not want to use a standard wheel.  We use this to create 'custom wheels' for our PB pool, which might not have any 'guarantees' like traditional wheels, but offer an even distribution of numbers.  The full wheel generator, generates full wheels.  Pretty self-explanitory there.  The Ticket Checker is just something I threw in there quick because it's helpful for me to check tickets that I filtered out for previous draws, and see how well they would have done.

Filtering is in its own section currently, going to be modifying this tab thoroughly before the final version. One of the only things currently hard-coded in this software is the ability to check GAPS only for 5-pick lotteries.  That will not be the case in the final product though :)

It does wheel tickets based on wheel patterns stored in text files, so creating addition wheels is quick and easy. This tab is going to undergo a graphical update and a few additions in the near future as well, and filtering is going to be included OnWheelCreation if the user so choses.

Before I think about releasing it I will be changing the way draw history is stored.  Currently the draws are stored in comma delimited text files, but will most likely convert these to dbf files and try to work with someone (or some company) who keeps an up-to-date database of all lotteries nationwide (or world wide) so every lotto imaginable will be available.  The program is dynamic based on each lotto's maximum, has a bonus ball or not, picks per draw, etc.  This way when, say, Powerball changes from a max of 55 to 59 all I'll have to do is change 1 item in a text file (or dbf file) and the lotto program knows what to use.

I've done decent with is so far, had a $300 4 of 5 hit in the CT Cash 5 a few months ago and 3 of 5 dozens of times (I only play 2-3 lines once or twice per week), and been doing ok for the challenges here.  Spending more time lately on modifying the software, rather than using it though :)

The software is looking pretty good Stew12!! Let us know when you decide to release it, as this is one I might want to add to my arsenal.

      the type of rng they use is binary. they use the xor gate. and use radiation count to began there routine.

      some might use thermal noise to began their routine.

      do you believe its possible to emulate or simulate their sequence?

          Thanks mymonthlypicks, I will keep everyone posted!  Got a little more coding to do before it's ready for the public, but it shouldn't be too long.
