Now that I know the MM drawing results, I can start picking 10 lines, no make that 15 lines for PB.

Good luck if you're playing.

What exactly is the pattern between the two lotteries?

I had both websites opened to each lottery.

Say, these were the results for Mega Millions (this is just an example):

 11/6/2012 3, 5, 13, 32, 35 Mega Ball = 6

So for Powerball, the next drawing would be the day after, so 11/7/2012, however like 1% not even one of those 5 numbers would repeat. What I noticed is that what happened more often than that is that one of those MM numbers from the 6th drawing would repeat NOT on the 7th drawing for PB, but on the 10th (so it skipped a drawing). And even this wasn't that common, although it was more common that showing up again the day after. Is this what you are talking about?

I didn't see any in last night's MM drawing, but I couldn't know that until after I saw the results.  If you're looking for fast hard rules that apply every time, I have none, you'll have to make up your own.

If you keep observing and taking notes, pretty soon you'll have a set of rules of your own to guide you toward picking a winner.

Good luck.

Its really too subtle to tell at this point, but you might be on to something.  Its not odd for numbers to appear in both games within a short span of time.  I would say a skip of 10 would be a good guess.

Is anybody testing Hans theory with this PB game and his chess interpretation?

I like the chess analogy because there is a lot of one space movement, and the knight does the funky called medina.

I'm guessing since you like the chess analogy you are testing his theory.  I prefer to wait until someone has actually posted some winning predictions before wasting any time testing their ideas.  I hardly have time to test my own.

Ya know, I haven't been here in a while, but I just want to point out that if you put this much effort into learning a way to gamble that is actually beatable, you could have learned a lot by now - and possibly earned some decent money.

You could have learned to Count Cards, or be an effective Poker player, or play certain beatable progressive Video Poker machines, etc.  all of which return more than 100% of all bets to players if they are played properly.  That's something you will basically not be able to with Lottery play, and most defenietely will not with Powerball/MegaMillions.

Are you trying to say you've spent your time learning to gamble professionally and now you are making all kinds of money playing the Video Poke machines?  Congratulations, sounds like you've found a new day job.
