    I like that aggressive way of thinking. That's why I'm playing 66 lines on the MM draw tomorrow night.

    How do you know a "might have played" rejected, from all the other rejected when you have 400k lines?

    When I run my RNG, it usually pick about 100 combinations which 10 are worth a look of which I pick one.  Combination with four or more consecutive numbers, ranges of less than 18, sums of less than 50 and etc. are rejected with out a look and the rest are recorded in a reject file.  Some of those are rejected because they aren't within some additional parameters I set or by my me when I looked at them.

    All the combinations in the reject file have a code showing why they were rejected or accepted.  I usually look at this file after every drawing to make sure that even if I didn't pick a winner, I at least had a chance to pick one and the RNG is picking a good variety of combinations.  Surprisingly, many times this file never has a combination with more than three of the winning numbers even if most of the winning numbers were in the pool.  Sometimes I will change the parameters the next time I play the game based on what I noticed in the file.

      Excellent work RJOh, a big win is never more than a draw away.

          Excellent work RJOh, a big win is never more than a draw away.

          As soon as I have the results of the OCL drawings tonight, I can manually input the winning combination and see if my program would have rejected it and why had it been picked by the RNG.  I don't usually close the RNG program until after the drawing for that reason. 

          I will enter the code "WW" to show it was the winning combination manually entered and the file will be available for study until the next time I play OCL and the file is rewritten.

          I will start looking over my PB reject file and start preparing to pick 10 lines again for Wednesday.  I may change how I pick PB bonus numbers since #33 was on the original list but removed because it had followed #4 in an earlier drawing.

            Wheeling can get a bit expensive, that's the reason I prefer to pick a few lines using the most popular combination mixes of previous winners.  That strategy seems to get about the same results as wheeling but at a lower cost.

            "Wheeling can get a bit expensive"

            I Agree! and that's why I probably spend more time on betting strategies than systems. The cost of most "if 5"  or "if 6" wheels usually exceed the winnings by getting the guarantee. Having five of the numbers is tough enough unless you're using all the numbers and if there really is a "holy grail" of lottery systems, it's finding the correct order to place the numbers into a 2 if 5 of 39 pick-5 wheel or a 2 if 5 of 56 numbers MM wheel.

              I not sure what my limits are but I've alway limited my play to $20 worth of tickets per drawing just to be safe.

              I've done well playing pick-4 games and every time I've cashed the thoughts of "if I only spent $2 more on a straight or $5 more on a box" goes through my mind. But getting greedy and reinvesting a large amount of the winnings is the worst thing a player can do.

              The amount of money players wager is relative to what they can afford (or should be) and their winning expectations, whether it's a $40 box pick-3 win or a multi-million jackpot is and should be their personal choice.

                You are lucky if you've done well playing any lottery game.  I think of playing lotteries as entertainment and treat it as a bad habit like drinking or smoking.  It's something I enjoy doing but not to the point of addiction.

                  This evening when I play the local Classic Lotto(6/49) I'm won't be playing it safe since I have an extra $7 in my pocket from my weekend PB win and will spend an extra $5 on tickets.

                  A week ago when I matched 4of6 playing this game, I noticed a 5of6 in the reject file that I might had played had I spent a few extra dollars.  You can't always play it safe when you're gambling, sometimes extra risk equals extra rewards and I can afford the extra risk.

                  Buying five more lines didn't help since I only had four of the winning numbers in the pool of 38 numbers, only matched 2 twice .  The winning numbers were in the positions I expected and the winning combination was of the mix I expected, just the one element was missing is my strategy- all the winning numbers.  I had a few match3 in the reject file but those combinations weren't the right mix.
