Do some number combinations have better odds?

      The rule is, its your choice. Keep the same or change as often as you like. Technically this is a self pick game, but I think using RNG numbers to muck it up will be a good object lesson for all the boys and girls. lol.

      Just leave em up then haha.  I see no reason to change them!

          If a person uses a QP combo and fills out a play slip, is it still a QP combo?????

                I've run large simulations for one drawing to satisfy my curiosity, but I would never do it for forty.  I would calculate the probability of the results instead, it's easier.

                Easier yes, but NOT practical application in the real work.

                That's where boney and and all the other think tank boys go south. 

                The Wright Brothers didn't "declare" flight poseable. They "made" flight possible.

                      Since winning a lottery isn't my only day job, I have to limit the time I spend at it and calculating the probability of results is one way of doing that.

                      Your idea of using the most popular positions of numbers when they last hit in previous drawings has allowed me to reduce the number pools by 50% and still have all the winning numbers 50% of the time which I believe improves my odds of winning something every time I play.

                      I continue to work on more practical applications as time permits.

                      Good luck to you.

                        The Wright Brothers didn't "declare" flight poseable. They "made" flight possible.

                        The Wright Brothers used math!  They made it possible by working hard at something that seemed completely plausible.  We saw birds do it, after all.  We do see seemingly impossible things happen because of Capitalism, but I guess that's the point.  There's always someone willing to put in risk and effort into seemingly nutty ideas.

                         

                        Most of those nutty ideas ultimately fail.  For every Wright Brother there's thousands of people we'll never know about that failed.  I'm not saying nobody should try.  Quite the contrary.  But the average person should focus their efforts on rewards that are doable... realistic.  I mean seriously, without proper knowledge of mathemtics all these things you talk about don't happen.  The Wright Brothers didn't just sit there and imagine how a airplane would work without proper knowledge.  What we don't see is people consistently beating random games with an edge against them.  Never gonna happen.  It just defies the laws of reality.

                         

                        But, like I said before, believe what you want.  All I know is probability theory is well understood, and it absoultely is not a grey area like, for example, airplanes would be in the 1800s.  That stuff was not well understood then, and the Wright Brothers provided a blue print to understand it better.  They are not comparable ideas at all.

                          What Im doing "seems completely plausible" too, considering 6 poeple blew away the overall odds.

                            Really!! How do you presume to speak for "the average person" and what they should do with their time??

                              Seriously?? Do I really need proper knowledge of mathemtics  to understand that the "overall odds" can be blown away by people who are choosing their numbers intelligently????
