One other thing I forgot to mention in my previous post ....

Dont ask me why this is the case, I have no idea why it happens, but recently "double odd digit" numbers have been drawn in Take5 more than "double even digit" numbers or "mixed digit" numbers.  I try to play at least one number that is a "double odd digit" number.  (A double odd digit number is number where both digits of the number are odd.)  In Take5, the double odd digit numbers are: 11,13,15,17,19,31,33,35,37, & 39.

For NY's take5, in the last 35 days or so, 62.5% more double odd digit numbers have been drawn than double even digit numbers. (If I counted correctly, there were 80 double digit odd numbers drawn as opposed to 50 double even being drawn.)

Numbers are a fascinating and funny thing. There are lots of trends/things you can look for, some are obvious, some are very subtle.  Will any of the things I pointed out win you a jackpot? They have NOT done it for me, but who knows, they might, so that's why I play. Some say the lottery is a sucker bet. I tend to agree with that, so I try to play it "smartly".  At least I think I play it smartly.........  GiveFive

Ok, that is ONE stat (double odd & double even) that I have not seen or looked at before - but its a GREAT stat!!

Although since the double ODD has hit so much are the double even due??? or was the double odd just catching up???

Money won is twice as good as money earned!

Bash,

Two excellent questions!

But to be honest, I dont know the answer to either of them!

The stat is new to me too, but I think you need to be very careful with it as a lot depends upon whether or not you are willing to consider a zero an even number, and also if leading zero's should be counted.

For my own purposes, I do consider a zero an even number, and I count leading zeros. (I count 02 as a double even digit number.)  But that's me.  You may feel differently about counting or not counting leading zeros, and you may feel a zero is neither odd nor even.  Each player has to decide for themselves.

Here's how I see it:

Mixed digit numbers: 01,03,05,07,09,10,12,14,16,18,21,23,25,27,29,32,34,36,& 38.

Double even digit numbers: 02,04,06,08,20,22,24,26,28,& 30

Double odd digit numbers: 11,13,15,17,19,31,33,35,37,& 39

Given there are 19 mixed digit numbers, I would think there'd be more of them drawn, but in the small amount of data I've pulled together (only 30 days) here's the breakdown: double odd 80, double even 50, mixed digits 49.  I may pull together more drawings (possibly two years worh of data) and do an analysis on it. If I do, I'll post whatever I discover here.  Give5

Of course zero is an even number.  We use a decimal system (base 10), so there are 10 digits (0-9).  Half of them are odd and half are even.  If you did not consider zero as an even number, then our decimal system would be lopsided!

Thanks ( and JackC for definition of ZERO)

maybe this will be the stat that helps us get from hitting 2 of 5 to 3-4-5 of 5.....

I took two years worth of NY Take5 drawings and did a some "analysis". (If it can be called analysis, it was really just counting)  The date range of the drawings that I used is from 6/20/08 to 6/20/10.

Because I rarely ever buy a Take5 ticket without at least one single digit number, I decided to exclude a leading zero as a digit. So numbers 1 thru 9 are not included in the work I did.  I counted only the two digit whole numbers. (10 thru 39)

3,650 numbers were drawn in the 730 drawings I used. (5x730 = 3,650)

The double even digit numbers are: 20,22,24,26, & 28

The double odd digit numbers are: 11,13,15,17,19,31,33,35,27,& 39

The mixed digit numbers are: 10,12,14,16,18,21,23,25,27,29,30,32,34,36, & 38

As you'd expect from looking at the above, mixed digit numbers fared the best. 1452 out of 3650 or 39.78%.

Double odd digits were 909 out of 3650, or 24.9%

Double even digits were 457 out of 3650 or 12.52%

I would think it would be a good idea to play mixed digit numbers simply because there are more of them.

That said, lately in NY Take5 (in the last 30 days or so) double odd digits have been appearing more frequently than double even digits. (80 vs 62)   You tell me why that's the case! ;-)

Well I had the 11-19-24 for the 6/21/10 draw. (crappy \$16)

Draw: 6/22/10

14-23-25-27-33

I played:

14-20-25-32-33

Again, sucks to do the research to forecast this structure (and get another \$16)
