I agree with Bobby....without indicators, trends, pointers, trigger, addtional probabilities ....etc, you are shooting in the dark. I guess you could wheel it, so you could get more coverage in the dark...but where to aim? How to aim? Almost every post at the LP avoids answering this fundamental and most basic of questions. So, just kick around the same stats that have been kicked around for years, use the same filters that have been around since the LP began, perhaps we could talk about would could occur rather than what will probably occur or probably won't occur.

Sorry, I just read several LP posts including this one and well. I might as well have turned back the clock several years...and only the names have changed. But being the glutten for punishment that I am, I'll keep coming back hoping that someone has the vision to .....well, you get the idea.

It's one only point of view. Please don't take it personnally.

Best of luck.

    I found this question interesting because a while back I started looking only at the draws where someone

    won a JP.  I started with PB and then moved on to other games.  What I found is that when a certain type

    of set was drawn then it was very likely someone would hit.  Many times I could just look at the set and do

    a few counts and predict if someone won.  I started doing this without thinking and most days I can not

    only tell if the JP was won but I can often predict if more than one person matched all 5 numbers.   I think

    this is due to how people play similar numbers.  Look at the draws where where all 5 numbers are all low

    or all hi and most days someone will hit.   I don't think that this would help pick any numbers but it shows

    that tickets are clustered.   Lets say that you have one group that plays only numbers less than ten and

    another group that plays from the hi end of the pool, another plays one from each decade and so on and

    on.  This leaves big gaps that are not covered by ticket sales and unless the drawing falls into one of these

    groups it is not likely anyone will win.   If the next draw was 1-2-3-4-5 PB=6 then I would expect many would

    be sharing the JP.   The same thing would happen if all the numbers fell between 20 and 30.   If you were to

    plot all ticket sales by commonalities then you would find many big clusters and a lot of empty space.  When

    the set drawn falls into one of the clusters then someone most likely will win and if it falls outside then not.

    I find that even people who play systems often have a idea of what they will use and then make the program

    agree with them instead of the other way around.  I use to keep a list of all my past plays and one day decided

    to do a little analysis.  To my supprise I found that even using a system I played almost the same sets every day.

    I think everyone who picks there own numbers suffers somewhat from this, It's like we have a preconceived

    notion of what we think will hit.  Even QP's seem to cluster which may be the product of the RNG used.

    I will consider the opinion that my winnings are a product of chance if you are willing to consider

    they are not.  Many great discoveries come while searching for something else

      There were some commonalities between the previous PB combinations and the one drawn 10/29 and they were useful for eliminating combinations if you were playing 20 lines or less.

      For example when comparing all 293 combinations with each other 95% of them had:

      matched:         digits      sums      gaps      ranges
      0 = 161-204      4-8         88-226    1-29      17-57
      1 = 75-116
      2 = 7-23
      3 = 0-2
      4 = 0
      5 = 0

      The winning combination 11-16-40-51-56 +38 matched the previous 293 drawings:

      matched:         digits      sum       gaps       range
      0 = 188          5           174       5-24       46
      1 = 89
      2 = 15
      3 = 1
      4 = 0
      5 = 0

      None of the combinations had ever repeated and PB #38 was from one of the top 15 PB repeating positions #23.  When comparing the now 294 combinations with each others those parameters won't change much if any.  Good luck if you're playing PB this Wednesday.

      Last night's winning numbers 12 14 34 39 46 +36 weren't totally within the 95% parameters.

      matched:         digits      sum       gaps       range
      0 = 194          6           145       2-20       35
      1 = 85
      2 = 12
      3 = 3
      4 = 0
      5 = 0

      PB #36 was from the top 24th repeating position but because 5 of the higher rated positions had the same numbers it would have been rated at 18th.

      Now that both MM and PB jackpots are reset I'll work on refining my ideas until their jackpots are worth playing again.

        Best of luck.

        Any time you play the PB with overall odds of 1:35 of hitting anything of value, you're shooting in the dark but if you've noticed when the lights come on(after the drawings) that targets seem to had a pattern, while not pick where you shoot the next time the lights are out?  If you're only shooting 10-20 times, you can't do any worst than shooting randomly in the dark.

        I don't take any of the opinions personally, I posted the question to get the views of other members.  Thanks for yours.
