Hi Everybody,

Need some help/ideas/suggestions please. Been consistently winning 3 numbers but decided to take a different approach to target 4 and 5 number wins as there are more of those than the jackpot, while at the same time standing a jackpot chance. In a 6/49 Lottery there can only be 1 six number match per draw, but several 4 and 5 number matches. Using this idea, I filtered the 13 million plus combinations down to 523500 combinations. In backtesting, these 523500 combinations have several 5 number matches 8 out of 10 times, and a jackpot match 1 in 10. Doing a forward test in the last 5 draws the results for 5 numbers (4 numbers in brackets) using the 523500 combinations only are as follows: 3 (268), 17 (622), 24 (668), 5 (553) and 31 (870). What I need assistance with is ways to reduce the 523500 combinations further so that I stand a good chance of matching 4/5 numbers in 50-100 lines. I've already used the standard filters odd/even, high/low, sums, decades, consecutives as well as RL's Digit system etc. to get the 523500 combinations, and need some other suggestions to try as well to reduce it further. If one can get it to produce one five number match in every 10 draws one can make a small profit over those 10 draws. Any help/ideas/suggestions is much appreciated.

Thanks

Thoght I'd share this reduction method and get some input.........saw it on an old LP post and adapted it slightly for my needs. Just tracking it at the moment and haven't played yet so here it is and an example on how well it can work (sometimes). The first 3 steps are the ones I use, and steps 4 and 5 are to reduce the numbers further but obviously with less accuracy.

1)     Eliminate numbers occurring 2 times in a row in the last 10 Draws
2)     Eliminate numbers occurring 3 or more times in the last 10 Draws
3)     Eliminate numbers occurring 7/8 or more times in the last 45 Draws (or the amount of numbers in the Draw e.g. for a 6/49 game you would use the last 49 Draws)
4)     For further reduction, you can then eliminate numbers occurring 7 times in the last 45 draws
5)     For further reduction, you can then eliminate numbers occurring 6 times in the last 45 draws

Example using recent powerball history for South Africa, only showing the last 10 draws, most recent at the top (and including duplicate numbers for demonstration purposes, also I use covermaster to check occurences:

10,15,16,22,36
9,11,17,35,38
4,14,26,34,44
1,17,18,19,44
3,7,16,21,40
3,15,25,32,38
16,22,28,30,31
4,1,3,5,40
10,19,16,1,5
31,33,36,40,42

Step 1 (starting from the bottom line) eliminates 1, 5, 3 44
Step 2 eliminates 1, 3, 16, 40
Step 3 (using last 45 Draws) eliminates 1, 9, 23, 40, 42, 44
Step 4 eliminates 2, 30, 33
Step 5 eliminates 3, 7, 8, 15, 16, 19, 21, 25, 31

So going through all 5 steps eliminates 19 numbesr leaving 26 to play.Using the first 3 steps only generally has the most accurate results but usually only eliminates 9-12 numbers. The results in last nights powerBall draw? 13, 28, 32, 35, 36 so all 5 numbers are in the 26 left over :-)

Would be interesting to see if and how well this would do in other lotteries, and what other people would add/take away to make it more effective?
