i'm new to this site so please forgive me if i posted this question in the wrong forum.

some friends of mine have started using SAS to analyze lottery results.  they claim to have found a way to eliminate numbers from selection by finding what they call are nopicks.  my question is does this make sense?  i know there are systems that can be used to select numbers but does it make sense to eliminate numbers.  i'm also skeptical of their methodology.  they say that they are using something called runs theory. i think that you can see what they're doing by searching for "sas lottery nopicks" but i'm not sure all search engines have it.

i like pick 5 games.  i know that there must be some systems that work.  there's a guy near the VA border who has won the cash 5 top prize more than once recently.  i'm looking for advice on what works and what doesn't.

    First of all, welcome to LP. Lots of info here to read.

    I don't know what SAS is or means, but there are some posts in other forums about number elimination. you can find them by using the search function at the top of the page. Personally, I have not tried number elimination to pick my numbers, although technically when one picks numbers to play, they are rejecting other numbers.......

    Good luck and again welcome.

      I assume SAS stands for Statistical Analysis Software.  If you have friends who are using such software to pick their numbers then they would be your best source to ask how well it works.   I've seen a few posts about this in the past and concluded that such software doesn't do well with the random outcomes of lotteries.

        SAS isn't necessary.  The simple, surefire way to ensure a jackpot win is to convince the lottery in question to remove all the balls from the machine which are NOT on your ticket before they start the spin! Smile

          Since that's not likely, that suggestion is more worthless than playing all the possible combinations which was tried successfully a few years ago with the Virginia lottery.
