Do some number combinations have better odds?

              Im not sure either RJOh

              Aside from a stroke of luck, the only way to get BETTER ODDS with a wheel is to use fewer numbers.

                If you have a copy of the wheel and a number swapping program then you can do that fairly easy. 

                For example if the wheel has a combination 1 2 3 4 5 then you simply switch 1 =01, 2=02, 3=18, 4=24, 5=41 and  if it has  a combination 6 7 8 9 10 then you could switch them for another winning combinations and etc.  If the wheel has 10 unique combinations then you could switch 10 unique combinations or where the same numbers are in several combinations fit in even more combinations. 

                After you had done that, you would know what could have happened in past drawings but I don't know how it could help you going forward with future drawings.

                The wheel order never changes so if one of the lines is 1-2-18-24-41, the drawing numbers are placed in the wheel positions of 1, 2, 18, 24, and 41. Then you cleck the other 45 lines to see if any lines produced other five number matches in the game history. There are 458,377,920 possible orders, but only 35,446 could have produced a five number match using LP's 46 combo 2 if 5 of 56 number wheel. Because all the numbers are not paired with all the other numbers, it's possible to fit more five number matches into the wheel.

                "After you had done that, you would know what could have happened in past drawings but I don't know how it could help you going forward with future drawings."

                Most approaches are based on what happened in the past including trying to find which group of 28 numbers had the most five number matches and/or which groups had enough five number matches to make it a worthwhile playing strategy. Some are based on a combination of probabiltiy and drawing results; the percentage of 2 or 3 of the drawn numbers being odd is about the same as probability.

                Checking the wheel performance against the results is just about the same as checking filters, but there are programs making it much easier to check the filters.

                  Even though RJOh, decided not to like my method of eliminating numbers from a given number pool I think it is the best tool that I have found. As soon as I hit 5 of 5 on MM, people will believe that it works.

                    I never decided not to like your method of eliminating numbers, I just stuck with what I was doing before you came along.   I did use your idea of looking at numbers in the order they had appeared in the most recent drawings and playing a pool of the top 28 or so positions and thought it had promise.  But I've been testing it out on Ohio's RC5(5/39) and have been disappointed with the results. 

                    RC5's jackpot was $640K tonight which is about $50K more than it would cost to buy all its possible combinations, so I expect someone will hit it tonight.  I could only match 2 with 5 lines, which is better than its odds of matching 2 with 9 lines but it only pays a dollar.

                      No one won RC5 so its jackpot will be $720K tomorrow and I'll get another chance to test my strategy.

                      I only matched 2 twice with 10 lines for $2.

                          Thanks.  I hope your investment in MM tickets is equally rewarding tonight.

                            What I was describing was just another method and not necessarily the best method. I'll vote for any method that produces five number matches.
