After using Excel in every way I can find possible, and other software, seems like old fashion pencil and paper is better.  I done some backtesting looking at lottery books and writing the number down daily seems like I just get a better "feel" of the numbers.  Do anyone else feel this way?

        Excel Forever!

        Excel removes the Tediousness from the Paper Workouts.

        (Tedious: Marked by tedium; boring; long and tiresome; wearisome)

        In addition their may be ways to use Excel for Lottery Play: That folks haven't thought of yet!

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

            I use paper...I like to sit down with a cup or two or three or four and just absorb myself into the numbers - the longer I sit with them the better I get a feel for it.  Just my two cents...

            I will say sometimes I really frustrate myself because I keep changing and changing the numbers and I seem to get stuck on trying to be perfect with them.  Now I kind of have some ratios I work with and I apply those to previous winners to pick a range or notice that I am too high and not in the mid-range like the winners most of the time seem to be...

                I love excel better than paper.  I can keep as many records as I a want and look back at what was played on what day or whatever or where ever my brain takes me.

                 

                Lucki723, I would be interested in seeing your template.

                    While it's a 'to each his own' situation, I've convinced myself many times that paper and pencil is best approach.

                    True, computers, which are fancy adding machines, can take care of some of the mundance tasks, the final choices, or
                    best guesses, have more meaning when they are based on one's 'gut feelings' while doing the necessary logging
                    and file management chores - in my humble opinion, of course.

                    It seems to me if you don't have 'some skin' in whatever system you rely on, all you are getting are quick picks, which can
                    be bought at the nearest lottery terminal.

                    No system, including Excel, that's generally available to the public can produce winning numbers on a consistent basis, if at all.

                    Bottom line, having a chance to win huge sums of money is worth a little effort, even when those efforts are not likely
                    to be on target.

                    Win or lose, I'll take the credit.

                        Paper & Pencil!

                        The computer is neater and saves time, paper and pencil lead.

                        Yet, my feel of the numbers comes from and with writing them

                        and processing them with my brain's computer!  Hopefully, this

                        keeps my brain young, sharp, exercised and entertained, too! Wink

                          IDK how to use excel, so initially it was pen and paper. However because I was using way too much time to do my figuring, I downloaded some lotto software to do some of the math for me and help with the statistics. But ultimately I still use pen and paper when I'm to the point of writing up my final #'s to play.

                            I prefer pencil and paper using my brain and intution are the best way . Been using it for years , their is to many varibles in using a software. With pencil and paper

                            it takes me least than 5 minutes to process my numbers sets for any game. The software with wheels just give you to many sets even with abbreviated wheels most of the time with my system I come up with 1 to 10 sets to play..

                              I like Excel to keep my brain stirred up, and the stats.  But something about writing down the numbers and workouts feel better.
