Just wanted to hear opinions and different ideas on filtering. I always seem to come up with too many numbers, even though the winner is usually in there. Just looking at ways to cut down down on numbers and  trim the fat a little.

    Hi,

      It might help if you told us what type of lottery game your working on and what kind of filters you are using. Are you programming, tracking in Excel, or simply doing a paper and pencil method? Any detailed info may help in getting meaningful respnses for you.

    You are a slave to the choices you have made.  jk

        Here are a few filters you can use....

        Sum

        LDR

        Root Sum

        Even/Odd

        High/Low

        In/Out

         

        ***Keep in mind that filters can remove the winning number

          Using filters is one way of "getting above the numbers".  Filters (or patterns) can be useful if you track them while tracking the numbers.  The problem then becomes "How do you track patterns?".

            With excel you can just color coordinate the cells to see patterns.

             

            With a paper/pencil tracking method you would have to use colored pencils.

             

            I find excel to be easier to use :)

              I, too, use Excel.  IMHO, Excel is the best lottery program going. 

              I track the filters/patterns/feature (or FPF)  using the numbers 0 and 1.  If the FPF is present in the numbers, I record that with the number 1.  If the FPF is not there, then I record that fact as the number 0.  This information is put on a separate sheet.

              There might be a better way of tracking FPF.  If there is, I certainly would like to be educated as to how.
