Do you use a lotto software that can take your own generated numbers, scan them and select all the combinations that will match 4 numbers if any of the combinations contains four numbers drawn.

    You can do something similar to that using CoverMaster.  CoverMaster can create wheels and evaluate them also,  If you put your picks in a text file and import them into CoverMaster, it will evaluate them as if they were  wheeled.

    If you don't have as good of coverage as you would like, it can create additional lines to get that coverage.

      I have Covermasters it takes too long. I think it is gonna take 12 hours to auto optimize my numbers. I don't know what this will do and it is a little confusing to use there is gonna be a simpler way.

        If you calculate the amount of combinations of fours that you cover as you generate each combination of five and you know the number of combinations of fours that exist for the conditions you are covering then you will have your answer as you generate each combination.

        For example, if you are generating 5 number combinations, each combination cover five combinations of fours.  When you first start out, you write all 5 combinations of fours to a file and as you generate additional combinations of 5, you compare its 5 combinations of fours to the list of fours already in the file and only add the ones not in the file or if all 5 are there then you might skip that combination all together. You continue to do this until you have all the combinations of fives you want.

        When you finish you have a count of the number of combinations of fours your list covers and if you are covering a pick5 game with a 50 numbers pool then you know it has 230,300 possible combinations of fours.  If your list cover 10,000 of them then you have covered 10,000/230,300 or 4.3% of the 2,118,760 possible combinations of fives with four numbers from your group.

        There's probably a way to do this using a spread sheet program.  Good luck.

          I know, I should get with the 'program'.  LoL!  I use paper and pen. 

          I do the computer picks for the Powerball - people have hit with computer picks.

              Nope, I don't use a software program at the moment. I don't play enough lines to need a program. Lately, I've only been buying 3 or 4 tickets and they are ususally just a set if numbers I've been playing regularly.

                Yes. Softwares help alot in terms of calculations and automation, allowing one to see the weakness of the game, and I take offense in that area.

                  You got me confused with someone mathematical inclined.

                  I will break down what you said and at least try to get a sum or count.

                  I have been downloading several lotto softwares that seems like the would analyse combinations like covermaster, lotto007, visual lotto analysizer and nothing.

                  Most claim the would analyse numbers for you. I see wheels for 4if5 combinations of X numbers. Wouldn't this require some formula.

                  Does the computer generate all the numbers and scan through the all or does it go step, step, step, step, skip knowing it covered one combination of that number like transversing through a binary tree.

                  I have seen programs written for just about any lotto combinations I think this is a simple scan.

                  I am trying to scan thru 100,000 combinations of five. Visually, I can only scan 1,000 combinations before my brain shuts down.

                    Once a wheel has been generated no math or formula is needed to use it, you or a wheeling program simply exchange your numbers with those in the wheel and sort them.  Even some program that compare numbers aren't using math because they see numbers as characters same as letters and each character has an ASCII code which gives them their value. The program I use compare combinations of numbers or letters or both, it makes no difference.

                    One you know what you want, you may be able to use a text editor help to get some of the information.
