Now that the 5 numbers spread out and released their energy as you predicted, what do you see them doing next?

Tuesday's drawing looks a lot like the one a month ago on Tuesday 02/28/12, I wonder if this Friday's drawing will look like the one that followed it.

RJOH,

Here's a graph, (for Friday's MM prediction) with 03/02/2012 (16-29-48-52-54) plotted on it. A line drawn through the results in numerical order produces a form somewhat similar to the form of the original graph. A good sign, hopefully.

Jade Lottery numbers in red: 5-11-35-42-49 produces a form that looks a lot like a question mark. LOL!

Good luck Everyone!

Hey good idea!  I'm headed out for some fortune cookies!  Plus, I'm pulling out all the stops> going to put 56 pennies with the numbers tapped to them in a hat and  select 6 of them.  Who knows?  When I lived in Texas there was a guy that won by putting the Texas lotto numbers on a sheet of paper .  He then put the paper near the chicken coop and  sprinkled a little feed on the paper, and then the  rooster poked a bunch of holes in it.  He picked the numbers adjacent to the biggest holes on the paper and won the lotto!   Like they say : Ain't nobody here but us chickens!

I use the pennies often to pick my numbers when I want to play all the numbers in the matrix.

Sorry, I have no idea what your graph is charting.

RJOH,

It's made from the last 30MM drawings. The horizontal line 0-8 lists numbers that have been hit 0 times, 1 time, 2x, up to ...... 8x, in the last 30 draws. Believe each number in a column has just as much chance of being picked as any other number in that column, but that may be wrong. Still working on that idea.  Hope this helps.

The goal is to approach the Pick 3 & Pick 4 game sensibly and systematically!!

I'm not like the guy who predicted the end of the world and nothing happened.

I see now, if you had titled it "last 30MM drawings" I would have picked up on that earlier.  Thanks.

Now that MM has been won and reset, there will be time to study all these charts and their relations to the drawing results and be prepared to generate a better set of numbers when the jackpot gets up there again.

it's looking like a divergence in numbers coming up based on some Bidirectional Mean Averaging of the numbers.

possibly 2 low and 3 high; at least from the BMA trends.

see the graph below.

I'm looking at your graph a little closer to see if particular numbers in each position have trends that predict whether the number in the next drawing is more likely to be more or less and by what amount.  This could limit the range of numbers I play for each position.

Using the trends of 11 35 38 41 52 +40 of past drawings when they were in these positions I will be picking 10 lines for Friday MM drawing within these limits:

1-10  9-34 13-37 23-41 20-52 and megaball 7-39.

Using the limits plus avoiding combinations that have matched 5 in past drawings should reduce the number of combinations I consider for playing without eliminating the winning combination.

Warning: This is only a test and should not be attempted by those who can't afford to gamble \$10.

Tonight's winning numbers were  02 19 20 24 33    +39
1-10  =  02
9-34  =  19
13-37 =  20
23-41 =  24
20-52 =  33
MB 7-39  =+39

I picked 10 lines within those limits and posted them on the prediction board and didn't win anything.  I will try again Tuesday using the trends from tonight's numbers.

2-28
3-18
21-46

These are the limits I will use in my RNG even though the forth position is lower than the third position.

21-46  12
25-45  31
34-56  48
MB 2-44 excluding 39   +25

So much for that idea, back to the drawing board.

At the drawing board I discovered while the trend give me good directions for picking the next numbers the fields are too wide.  Haven't had much luck with MegaMillions but I'm finding some interesting results with the state 6/49 game Classic Lotto, perhaps it's because I have more history with its present matrix.  I may test it on the state pick5 game Rolling Cash5 which has even more history.

I've refined my method and ready to run another test for tonight's MM drawing.  If successful will report results after the drawing.
