Pennsylvania Cash 5/43 (changed from 5/39 to 5/43 on Feb. 1, 2008)

There are a total of 962,598 possible combinations.

I created a chart that shows how many times a digit in positions 1 through 5 appear in all 962,598 combinations

So for example, the number 1 appears in the 1st position 111,930 times.  Same for number 43.

Each number 1-43 appears in 111,930 combinations

What if you take each Position 1 through 5 and locate the top 5 totals for each position?

It would look like the following:  (see next post)

So you can see from the images above the Top 5 in:

Postion 1 the top 5 are 1, 2, 3, 4, 5,

Postion 2 the top 5 are 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14,

Postion 3 the top 5 are 20, 21, 22, 23, 24

Postion 4 the top 5 are 31, 32, 33, 34, 35

Postion 5 the top 5 are 39, 40, 41, 42, 43

If you wheel all the digits by position you end up with 3,125 total combinations.  So when the Pennsylvania Cash 5/43 is completed a sorted from low to high and you see that in Position 1 you have either 1 through 5 (you have 1st digit picked), if you have either digits 9 through 13 (you have the 2nd digit picked), if you have either digits 20 through 24 (you have the 3rd digit picked), if you have either digits 20 through 24 (you have the 4th digit picked), and finally if you have either digits 39 through 43 (you have the 5th digit picked).  Congratulations you just won the big prize.  Either the sole winner of \$125,000 plus or sharing it with other players who also picked the same 5 numbers.  Sounds too easy right!!  Besides who has \$3,125 to play each and every day.  In the entire 798 past drawings this has occured a total of 2 times.  Just recently on March 9, 2010 (4, 9, 23, 35, 43) and back on June 22, 2009 (1, 12, 20, 31, 39).

In this post the credit goes to Carbob for providing formula for "Unique Values"

Unique Values is a calculating your draw as follows:

The last drawing for Pennsylvania Cash 5/43 on April 8, 2010 was:

2 - 19 - 27 - 34 - 38

So to get the "Unique Value" you take Position 1 and Position 2 and calculate the differnce.  So in the above example you take the difference between the 2 and the 19 and come up with 17.

Here are all the difference calculations:

P1(2) & P2(19) = 17

P1(2) & P3(27) = 25

P1(2) & P4(34) = 32

P1(2) & P5(38) = 36

P2(19) & P3(27) = 8

P2(19) & P4(34) = 15

P2(19) & P5(38) = 19

P3(27) & P4(34) = 7

P3(27) & P5(38) = 11

P4(34) & P5(38) = 4

The next step is to calculate the Total of "Unique Vales.  So we have 17, 25, 32, 36, 8, 15, 19, 7, 11, and 4.  So from the 10 possible calculations we have 10 "Unique Values".  All 10 are "Unique" with no repeats.

Below is a chart for the Pennsylvania Cash 5/43 that will show how many combinations for each "Unique Value"

So, in the chart above there are a total of 490,164 out of 962,598 (50.92 %) combinations that have a "Unique Value" of 10.  "Unique Value" of 9 has 226,770 combinations (a unique value of "9" means that there was repeat when totallying the 5 Positions.  See below for example for drawing on April 5 2010:

Getting back to the chart there a total of 716,934 combinations for "Unique Values"  5 and 6 or about 74% of the total combinations.  In cell column AE you can see how many "Hits" occured in the 798 drawings.  There were 420 times out of 798 draws that combinations with a "Unique Value" of 10 occured (52%).

So, looking at this chart it would make sense to key in on Unique Values 5 and 6.

In the 2nd post I said that there were a total of 3,125 total combinations using the highest totals for each position.

Position 1: Digits 1, 2, 3, 4, 5

Position 2: Digits 9, 10, 11, 12, 13

Position 3: Digits 20, 21, 22, 23, 24

Position 4: Digits 31, 32, 33, 34, 35

Position 5: Digits 39, 40, 41, 42, 43

The next step is that I took the 3,125 total combinations and filtered them down to any combination that had a  "Unique Value" of 9 and 10.

After filtering them I came up with the following:

Unique Value 9 - Total combinations = 784

Unique Value 10 - Total Combinations = 1430

For a total of 2214 combinations.

I created an Excel file that will take the 2214 combinations and randomly select 15 combinations from the 784 combinations with a "Unique Value" of 9 and randomly select 20 combinations from the 1430 combinations with a unique value of 10.

Here are my picks for the Pennsylvania Cash 5/43 for Friday Eve April 9, 2010:

See if we can catch some winners!!
