Hi RJOh, Sorry for the late reply, On average, 1 in 3 draws or better,  we do match the last 2 numbers. So in other words, if I can hit the first 4 numbers only, that would give me a 1 in 3 chance or better at the jackpot. Each term that we play is 26 draws (13weeks), so after spending \$2860.00 to play, we will win between 500.00 to 900.00 every term. We also come dangerously close to the jackpot at least twice every term, and even more so with some of the smaller cash prizes. So to me I think its inevitable to win something very significant a lot sooner than for most people.

That's OK, sounds like your normal return on the money you spend is a lot better than my normal return.  However, last Monday I played the 10 lines I posted on the prediction board and matched 5of6 so my return is looking a lot better too and I'm rethinking how often I play our local 649 game.

Its really not.

You know how to determine count in Last 50 and 100 games.  Then just look at the skip patterns of the top numbers.  There "should" be a lot of 5 day and 6 day skips.

The number 13 is top in MM over last 50 to 100 games so that means there is a higher then average probability that it will continues as a LFF or as a hot number.

I would analyze the ohio game and show an example, but i have to do my own workout now for NY.

Anyway RJ, dont spend those winning all in one bet!

"There "should" be a lot of 5 day and 6 day skips."

I have a program that places the numbers in order based on their last 3 hit/skips and averages two hits from the first 16 numbers in 5/39 games. Because MM uses 56 numbers, it takes longer for the frequent numbers move to the top. To look for five number matches using 28 numbers, I placed the MM number in order of just their last hit. It averaged about 1 out of 32 drawings and while better than 1 out of 39, still not enough for usable play.

Of the last 28 numbers out, 5 of them are from the previous drawing and about 97 of the next 100 drawing will only hit 0 to 1 of them. Using your 5 to 6 skips could lower the amount the of the other 23 numbers used.

"The number 13 is top in MM over last 50 to 100 games so that means there is a higher then average probability that it will continues as a LFF or as a hot number."

Using the order of last hit, I found a group of 28 numbers with eight consecutive five number matches. Had someone played the last 28 numbers hit, they would have 3 consecutive five number matches. Getting back to numbers like the current most frequent number "13", there will always be numbers doing that and not that unusual for 4 to 6 numbers to appear in ten consecutive drawings. The reason that group of 28 numbers had eight consecutive hits was because four of those numbers were in every drawing at least once.

Which would you rather have or a nickel?

Yes there will always be numbers doing that. However since most humans have limited life spans, it is important to identify WHICH numbers are doing that quickly, and determine if there is a bias of ANY kind and play fast and furious, otherwise we will be dead before we win. A count of hits in L50/L100 is logically the first step.  But it is important to not be too fast and furious or otherwise we will be POOR before we win! (and we would have to buy lottery tickets using the bottles we collect!)

Now if i was spending my days and nights reading catlins book, i would probably not be aware of this. But catlin and the  can kiss my butt!!

and if using 13 as a "potential" seed variable, we could elucidate other potential numbers that would score with the 13.  Perhaps a pair analysis at Usa mega could help narrow down the choices?

"Yes there will always be numbers doing that. However since most humans have limited life spans, it is important to identify WHICH numbers are doing that quickly, and determine if there is a bias of ANY kind and play fast and furious, otherwise we will be dead before we win."

In the last 50 MM drawings 11 numbers had at least 2 more hits than average and the same bias will exist in the next 50 drawings and some of those numbers will be part of that group. If you're looking for a group of 28 that will match five tonight, some of those numbers should be included because they represented 32% of all the numbers drawn in the last 50 drawings. Some of the "WHICH" numbers are right there.

"Now if i was spending my days and nights reading catlins book, i would probably not be aware of this."

While some math professors emeritus are writing articles telling us why the odds against are terrible, others have teams of card counters hitting the Blackjack tables or designing lottery wheels. What Catlin won't tell us is regardless of the previous 50 outcomes he calls irrelevant, the same 11 numbers should have 55 hits in the next 50 drawings.

"and if using 13 as a "potential" seed variable, we could elucidate other potential numbers that would score with the 13.  Perhaps a pair analysis at Usa mega could help narrow down the choices?"

Five numbers will be drawn tonight and 13 has the same chance of being one of the five as any other number. Nobody has to justify why they are using any number or why they paired it with other numbers. And I agree if you're going to key on certain numbers, pair them with the numbers they were drawn with more times.

I have been thinking..... If Brad DukLe can win with 15 numbers, so can I. Perhaps 15 is the sweet spot and I had just not thought of it yet? I have tried 39, 28, 20, 18, and 12. Why not 15???

I am undecided if I should call the system BDMM for "Brad Duke's method modified"

or

GFM for "Gambler's Fallacy method"

So here's how it works..... I take a full page of MM results from www.usamega.com

I ignore the past 2 results and use psykomo-analisis to pick 15 from the remaining 24 past results......
