I would never play more lines than it took to play every powerball once 'cause I'm not into wheeling.  I haven't  picked my lines yet but I usually play ten and I may use the \$4 win from Saturday to play 2 extra ones.

Im not sure why  RJOh?

The 4 if 4 of 28 wheel has already produced a 5+1 prediction win after reducing 98,280 down to 4931 lines.

Stack showed us how to reduce the full 28 number wheel by almost 95% and still hit 5 of 5.

Ronnie

Just running a test as these numbers have hit 5of5 35 times in the last 736 draws.  I want to see how many

times they will hit in the next 30 draws.  Nothing special about them with the exception of the past hit rate.

I was able to find another group that has hit 37 5of5's and may post it also.  Not competing here just a good

place to keep a count.  Have you posted your methods of selecting your numbers and is it something that is

consistent draw to draw or do you just study the data and make your best choices, either way I still say it's

exceptional.  You will need to hit the BB to make a profit but once is enough to put you over the top for a long

time.  Keep it up

RL,

I'm a little confused because you are saying the "randomly generated numbers"..........

"have hit 5of5 35 times in the last 736 draws".............

These two quotes, from two different post seem to be in contradiction with each other........

Did you generate random numbers and then find out their history, or are you selecting a groups based on their performance history??

Just asking for clarification purposes. Thanks.

Before this becomes another QP vs Self pick debate, I'm going to clarify; Ronnie has a 40 times better chance of matching five numbers than a player buying 41 QPs when five of his 28 numbers are drawn. It should be no mystery when less than five numbers are drawn, he has zero chance. A 2 if 2 basically becomes a 3 if 5 wheel when five numbers are drawn because he has at least ten chances to match ten of the three number matches.

When five of Ronnie's 28 numbers are drawn, the odds of having a five number match are 98,280 to 41 or 2397 to 1. The odds of 41 QPs having a five number match are 3,819,816 to 41 or 93,166 to 1. I don't know what you're trying to compare because there should always be one group of 41 QPs having a five number match for every 3.9 million QPs sold.

Excellent point Stack,

I hate reducing 98.280 lines down to 41, but it is 40 times BETTER ODDS than playing 41 QPs.

Im still very interested in testing, and eventually playing the 4 if 4 of 28 wheel.

If you're not sure why then why do you accept it as a fact?  Has Stack actually reduced a 28 numbers wheel by 95% and matched 5 of 5?

Do you think we could dream this stuff up   RJOh

Above is the actual post where I predicted the 5+1 win using 28 numbers, posted in order of appearance.

Stack reduced the total lines from 98,280 to 4931 by putting the numbers in a 4 if 4 of 28 wheel.

The 5+1 winning match was on line 1115 of the wheel.

Ok, I think I got it right, and have settled on a method to follow the same way every single time.

The last 35 numbers drawn will be used, minus 7 elimination numbers.... Just that simple.

This should give me a 5 of 5 hit every 10 draws on average...... Minus the times my eliminations fail.

This brings up a question for   RJOh,

Is it mathematically correct that any random 35 numbers would match 5 of 5 around 10% of the time??

The only other idea I have for BETTER ODDS is to randomly re-order the 28 numbers. Giving the LP 2 if 2 of 28 wheel a second chance at hitting the 5 of 5 match within the limited 41 line window of opportunity.

Input:  49, 21, 46, 4, 3, 55, 32, 9, 15, 17, 25, 47, 38, 7, 50, 40, 11, 51, 33, 20, 42, 31, 14, 8, 5, 23, 36, 16

I had a little time today so I coded your method, This is for my 5-39 but I started on line 13 of the database and then used

the next 800 lines picking the best 34 numbers and then randomly removing 6 to get me to the 28 numbers and then the

program check these against the last 12 draws.  Here are the results.  I was hoping I could use this to help me select my

groups but I could still wheel the 28 and set the TG filter to control the groups.   I still think more can be done to this.

Awesome RL,

Thank for putting some time into it. I hope it leads to some big wins for you.
