I have researched drawing histories has there ever been any repeat hits with 4,5 or Jackpot combo's ever? if so what where they and when?

    If you are talking about pick5 and jackpot games in general then it usually happens after they've had as many drawings the equal of 0.5% (half of 1%) of their possible combinations.  One of the games I play Ohio Rolling Cash5 (5/39) with 1911 drawings since it started  has done this several times.
     
     09/09/09 - 01 06 18 24 39
     02/18/05 - 01 06 18 24 39

     01/04/09 - 14 17 20 22 30
     06/21/07 - 14 17 20 22 30

     12/20/08 - 07 08 16 34 36
     10/12/04 - 07 08 16 34 36

     03/22/08 - 03 14 25 35 37
     04/25/06 - 03 14 25 35 37

    If you checked a game like West Virgina Cash25 (6/25) with over 3000 drawings, you would find it has happened even more times.

    Game like MM and PB keep changing so they have never had even 0.1% of their possible combinations drawn.

      If you check PowerBall records going back to 04/22/92, you would find it happened once and came close to happening another times.

       01/09/08 - 02 13 20 21 23    +24
       02/08/03 - 02 13 20 21 23    +35

       12/27/00 - 15 22 24 32 39    +18
       04/03/93 - 15 22 24 32 39    +18

      Once you start checking, you probably find it has happened in most every game.

          Do you search the results manually or do you have a software that you use to search for repeat hits??

            I use software that I manually wrote to do it automatically, but I can only search the files that I have  accumulated manually over the years or use a format that allow them to be transported into my program.

              That's cool. I started to look into programming in hopes that I'll be able to write a lotto program. I didn't get very far though. Lol.

              What do you use to write your program?

                I used GWBasic which is an old DOS program whose time has run out now that Vista and Window7 are becoming the standard OS.  I'm still using my older XP computer, I haven't down loaded a program 'XP mode' for my newer laptop which allows Window7 to run DOS programs that ran under XP.

                  I'm still running XP just fine. How long did it take you to write your program?

                    I've had some version of this program since I converted it from Commode64 Basic to Radio Shack Tandy version of BASIC over 15 years ago to run on my Tandy 1000. Over the years it changed as I changed computers to GWBasic. All those versions of BASIC were very similar so the changes were easy.  

                    Over the years I have changed and added routines as I needed them.  It probably only took a couple of hours to write, add and debug that search routine but I already had the basic file structure and a working program in place.  If I had started out from scratch, it would have taken a lot more time.  That's one of the reason I haven't bother learning a new language or another version of Basic and rewriting it to run on Window7.
