Ever since seeing the Challenges and how they are scored, I've wanted to write a program to unwind all 3,168 Tickets that the 12 White Balls and 4 Powerball choices represent, and then score them using the actuall Lottery Payoff Values.  I finally did it today.  I am hoping that the results will help to clarify some of the issues that we've been hashing over in the Lottery Discussion and Lottery Systems Forums.  This should be the case since I think it can be assumed that those submitting their 12+4 numbers to the challenge are picking them with a purpose and a belief that they will produce more profit than can be expected by chance.

It's quite late here and I'm not sure the program is thoroughly debugged, but I'm Posting the results anyway with the hope that there will be interest in the idea, and I might get some help in the form of DISCOVERY OF ERRORS. (IF ANY)

These results are preliminary!

If you find any descrepancies here, PLEASE post a critique!

The only Challenge date I've prepared a data input file for is 2010/08/28.  Here it is:

Thats pretty amazing that you did that...!!!

It would be a great addition to the stats, but I imagine,,,it takes a lot to write it and maintain it statistically....But a very cool program!!

Thanks fja,

I hope you have time to do a few spot checks of the details so I can feel more secure with the code.

That is very cool!  Does it take a lot of time to input or run?

The last game makes sense from the results Raven got a better return 'cause of the Pball than 3 of 5.  792 hits when you get the powerball

Note:

Thanks for the Thanks for posting these results.

Although I've now tried to "break" the program with lots of fictitious input data, I would still like to hear from someone who has at least spot checked some of the detailed output.

Thanks again!

I mean if you just do the work out it will be fixed for what ever you hit. 1 pball 792 hits, 3 wballs 144 hits,  but it really depends on how one mixes the the pballs and mega balls w/the wballs,  if you were to actually fill out the slips right?????????? cause you could take the first 792  and go every other pball or go straight first 792 w a pball then the next 792 with the next pball or evenly split  it ................. because to be able to play every wball combo with a pball mega ball the cost goes quadruple to \$12,672. Right????????// You are assuming the hitting pball or mball goes with the winning combos from the wballs.........in reality more expensive to cover.

That is very cool!  Does it take a lot of time to input or run?

The last game makes sense from the results Raven got a better return 'cause of the Pball than 3 of 5.  792 hits when you get the powerball

What is the objective of MD's PB Challenge?

Try to consistantly eliminate 47 WB's & 35 PB's and retain the WB's & PB's that will be Drawn!

To date: This Objective has Eluded All Takers!

Unless or until someone can do better than 3+0 in the Challenge: Betting \$3168 seems kinda foolish!

A mind once stretched by a new idea never returns to its original dimensions!

Right????????// You are assuming the hitting pball or mball goes with the winning combos from the wballs.........in reality more expensive to cover.

You need one full 12 number wheel for each bonus ball. A full 12 number wheel has 792 combos so you'll need 634 playslips with five boards on each playslip. The total cost of play is \$3168.

If one of your bonus balls matches, you'll have it 792 times (\$2376) and if you match 1 of the other numbers with the bonus ball, you'll have 330 \$4 winning tickets (\$1320) plus another 462 tickets matching just the bonus ball (\$1386). You'll need to consistently match 2 numbers plus the bonus number to show a profit.

In a full 12 number wheel each number occurs 330 times and every set of two numbers is matched 120 times for a total of 540 tickets matching at least 1 of the 2 numbers you match. 120 two number matches plus the bonus number (\$840), 420 one number match plus the bonus number (\$1680) and 252 bonus number matches (\$756) and a profit of \$108 on your \$3168 wager.

"in reality more expensive to cover"

That's the difficult part because you'll need a system that consistently matches the bonus number with an occasional 2 or 3 number match just to break even.

Thank You Stack for straightening that out for me.  I've always maintained that the first hill to climb is the PBall or the MBall.   Then you worry about the 5 of 5.
