I checked the box for "Minutes".

Cuz there was no box to check for "Seconds."

I have one line I always play on all games.

Any time spent (seconds) is on where I will source my second line - the LP RNG, the LP Word Converter, Lottery Terminal QP's or elsewhere.

I only play two lines.

That leaves plenty of time for drinkin' whiskey like a wild man gone insane.

That's my hobby.

    I am playing the same set of numbers for MM & PB.  The same set of numbers I have been playing for 15 or so years.  The same set of numbers I will continue to play until they hit. 

    So hours?  mega-hours?  not until old-timers hits and I have trouble recalling the numbers.  until then... not even minutes (although I checked minutes since that was the smallest increment available)

      I usually look at my clock whenever I need a set of #s, it gives me from 00-60, 1-24 to juggle with

            This took about an hour to put together and can get three out of twelve MegaMillion numbers for 5-11-2012 with luck. Chart made from last 30 MM drawings. Numbers under "0" have no hits in last 30 drawings, numbers listed under "3" have had three hits in the last 30 drawings. I believe the chart is "trying to smooth itself out" over time and produce a more uniform inverted bell curve and that implies hits under "0" and under "4" (but no more than two numbers in any single column). It still can't predict random but who can?

             

                                0    1    2    3    4    5    6

                                    13    7     8     1      3     6     2

                                    56   40    25    14   17

                                           44    32    21   19

              I like to do things like this, I'll take the first five non-duplicate percentage numbers from the current poll results and play them in a Pick 5........4  35  39  13  21. Only takes a few seconds.

              Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

              Lep

              There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

                  I spend at least 2 hours whenever i play. I always take time to analyze the previous drawing results before picking my numbers and consequently,

                   most of the time i win or get at least 2 numbers of 3 in pick3 game.

                            Thanks RJOH,

                               My guess is one hit from "0""3", and "4". Two hits from "2". Most hits happen in rows 1,2,3,4,6. The numbers hit may have a "slope" of 10 (example: slope between 47 and 11), or slope or "3" (example: 45 and 30). The idea of slope is unproven and don't know why it works. Any ideas??

                             

                             

                            Ronnie316,

                               At 60 draws, 10 columns are formed, still not very smooth. If had to do over again I would have used a sample size of about 35 instead of 30.

                             

                            Maximumfun,

                               Thanks. Sometimes a line connecting the winning numbers (for 5-11-2012) when circled on the chart makes a form resembling the original chart!

                              Not about slopes but I'm working on several other strategies that don't get me more that a 2-3 number matches.  I'm trying find a strategy or combination of strategies that put all the winning numbers in one line occasionally.
