I'm new to this forum and site. I did a search to see if anyone else had ever discussed this topic and didn't find anything, but my apologies if it's not a new discussion.
My interest lately with the PB is in frequency where 4 of the 5 white balls match any other 4 in any other particular PB draw. I created a macro in Excel to give me all examples of this (much higher percentage than anticipated).
Mostly, in the public's version of drawn numbers, quads don't show up as often as when you have the testpb.doc data of pre and post-tests as well. In my opinion, this leads me to believe that they pick which one of the 6 draws is the "draw" draw based on “certain” criteria (like this).
December 6, 2008 (during ball sets 25-28), an exact match of all 5 showed up between pre-tests (March 22, 2006). Exactly 3 weeks later, (about 2 years past average ball set change), they changed the ball set AND increased the numbers from 55 to 59… coincidence?
I have the 2002-2003 and 2005-2010 data for testpb.doc, but I'd really like to find someone who has everything before 2005 as I've been told by PB that they have had pre and post-tests since the beginning of the game. Who else has researched quad duplication frequency?
