Do some number combinations have better odds?

The error was caused by a line that was not removed, when I build something like this I rem out the

user inputs and use fixed values for testing the code it's self.  I used my 5-39 as default file name and 

when I built the last version I missed deleting the fixed file name so whatever name I entered was changed

back to the mo539.  All I had to do was delete the line of code.  Sorry for the mistake.  I really think more

can be done with Ron's methods but only time will tell.  I won't have time to work on it for a few weeks. 

It did spark an idea for simple method of removing numbers from play that seems to show promise but still

in the testing stages.   The random data is as random as the draw data and I don't see where it makes any

difference placed at the end of a file.  Since most of my analysis is matrix based and the history is just a way

to monitor how well the actual draws follow the expected then it's even less important.  What we are reallly

working on is the randomness of the draw by trying to predict the frequency.  I do have a few options that

work based on historical data and the function better with more data actual or generated.

RL

I use the historical data as a filter since no combination of five has ever repeated and winning combinations have matched other combinations of fours in the matrix no more than twice.  If the next winning combination was among the randomly generated lines that was added or it matched four more than twice because of them, it would be filtered out.  I also use the lines I pick as filters too to avoid duplications, I don't like to repeat combinations of fours or more when I'm limiting my picks to less than 30 lines.

    No one did better than 3+0 on this MM draw.

      Note to RL,

      Winning Powerball numbers are allusive and don't repeat anything like MM numbers do.

            Im glad you asked that question  mcginnin56,

            I have become very faint of heart and weak where playing real money on live tickets is concerned. My positive energy flow levels have reached a critically low level and I cant bear the thought of even a $10 QP slip.

              May I recommend picking up a single $2 ticket QP slip?

              If that were the winning ticket for this evening, would you have many regrets or disappointments?

              By winning you may also experience a significant rise in your P.E.F. levels.

              If your heart is that weak however, perhaps your wife could perform this task for you, as an errand of mercy?

                Perhaps the local pizza delivery should be asking... "would you like us to bring any QPs with that pizza?"

                    Mc, I feel that Ronnie missed on the 8. It would be very disappointing if he did. He has been posting multiple lines with powerball 8. It is the reason I do not stay playing with a particular set of numbers.

                    Ronnie, you did a great job, if you played the number 8.

                      No worry Thrifty, the $82. worth of tickets would have produced a 2+1 winner.... $7. 

                      plus 20 $4. winners. for a total of $87.........

                      So yes, I did miss out on winning $5..... BETTER luck next time.

                          Sorry to hear that. I caught mega ball 43 five times on a $5 ticket for mega millions. I did not match any numbers with it. I decided to go completely with quick picks afterwards, although I feel that playing any random mega ball or powerball 5 times is a very enticing strategy to pursuit a jackpot.
