Actually numbers can be tracked without the use of mathematics.   As Jack Webb would say from Dragnet....."Just the Facts".

Yes, the numbers can be tracked without the use of mathematics.  Just plug them into an Excel worksheet.

Now what you do with those numbers will require some level of math.  As for me, no math beyond 5th grade.

Actually you don't even need Excel to track them.   Just track the "facts".   Give you a hint....i.e.   Mega Million.

On the game card where I live the 56 Numbers are written out on 7 Rows with Row7 having only 2 numbers.   There are only 5 Numbers to pick.  What does that tell you?   Most of the time the numbers are on only 3 or 4 Rows.  Again, what does that tell you?

What other facts can you come up with when you look at what plays?

Last night in the Power Ball I had 3 of the 5 Numbers on three different tickets.   I don't use Quick Picks either.

You can cut the 56 numbers down to 20 or less if you study what plays.

If you don't like it, spit it out!

It's great to see you posting again and to hear from you!

The program I use looks at numbers as characters so if I replace them with letters, it makes no different.  It can tell me how many times 01-02-03-04-05 has matched 5 or less in past drawings or tell me how many times A-B-C-D-E has matched 5 or less if the both files are using letters.  That comes in handy when you want to look for trends and patterns not associated with numbers.

Good to see you too... inittowin.   I had to return to a regular job in 2004 and worked 40-60 hrs a week for 5 years.   When my emploiyer and I parted ways I picked back up tracking after about 6 months of not being able to find another job.   Been concentrating on the larger games instead of the Pick 3 and applying some initial ideas I came upon when the Lottery started in Texas in the 1990's.

I know a lot of people track the numbers trying to use mathematical formulas, tracking pairs, what usually plays with what but I've found it's not really necessary.   I track "facts" more then I track numbers and while there is some "math" involved because I assign numbers to facts, there are no "formulas" needed.

Last May I had 4 of the 6 in the Texas Lotto.   Hit the Bonus Ball in the Two Step 11 times.    Last night had 3 of the 5 numbers in the Power Ball and was 1 number off on the Power Ball number itself which was 15 and I played 16.

Right now I have some people working on some software for me for the Texas Two Step.   Will be a "controlled" Number Generator.  If I am successful with that software, I'm going back for software for the Powerball, Mega Millions and 6 pick games.

Came close to hitting the Mega Millions in May that was won in California.  Had two scenarios as to what was going to happen and after working the 1st one was to tired and weery eyed to work on the 2nd scenario and that was the one that hit.   I was a step or two off on what did play which was 9-21-31-36-43 BB 8.    I wanted an Odd # for the 1st but didn't think the Singles would play so I started at 12.   Knew would be one number in the 20's, 2 in the 30's and 1 in the 40's.   I went 12-20/22-31-35-41/45.   Knew the Power Ball would be a PURE Even number and there were only 8 possible numbers for that.

Had I worked the 2nd scenario I believe I could have pulled a minimum of \$30,000 out.

I did this for the NC Cash 5 for several months, still to many number to guess, unless you want to put out a lot of money and do 10-20 pick each day.  Here are some on my records

 Row TOTAL JUL-AUG-SEPT-OCT Total # with # with # with ALL 1 2 3 1-6 84 46 16 2 7-12 86 49 14 3 13-18 89 60 13 1 19-24 106 64 18 2 25-30 109 56 19 5 31-36 91 57 14 2 37-39 50 44 3 0 Total 615 376 97 15

Stil need to use Math, but a W A G is the only way to win.

Only "math" I use is in tracking the facts that point me to the numbers to play!   One fact is in a game that picks 5 numbers there are usually 6 Denominations.   If you look at your facts you will see most of the time only 3 or 4 different Denominations are used <G>

There are facts that go beyond simple math.   If you look at what plays and study them long enough you will see all the facts you need to track numbers.     4 Numbers vs 7 Rows of numbers?    Does that tell you anything?   "Look beyond the trees deep into the forest and you will find the hidden treasure".
