    I could only sit still long enough to fill in 60 lines. I messed up the last 2 numbers on line 18. Oops.

      Yea, didn't let me post a link but Google National-Lottery and it should be the first link.

                    Agreed Stack, we have talked about reverse engineering order input to see what COULD HAVE been done to produce a jackpot winning wheel. Brad Duke used a wheel so we know it can be done.

                    It's not about what "could have been done", but what can be done. The only thing that was proved in the last 808 MM drawings, placing the numbers into the 2if5 wheel in numerical order from 1 to 56 produced no five number matches. I proved by using a different order, it's possible to have three or more five number matches in 808 drawings. It's no different than saying it's possible to pick a group of 28 numbers and get 5 or more five number matches in 39 drawings and proving that it can be done.

                    "Brad Duke used a wheel so we know it can be done."

                    Duke's system for picking the 15 numbers was as simple as it gets; he used the most commonly drawn 15 numbers in the last 6 months. I matched 5 numbers out of 15 playing 5/37 and 5/39 pick-5 games, but I limited my chances of having them all on the same line by using a 13 combo 3if5 abbreviated wheel. Duke never said how he wheeled his numbers, but said he played about $300 worth of tickets. My best guess is he used a 4if4 abbreviated wheel or filtered the 3003 combos.

                    His playing strategy was base on what he though was the best way by purchasing 300 tickets. If Thrifty's strategy is to someday play 5 tickets, he can either purchase 5 QPs or decide what is the best way for him to pick 5 lines. Our critics want to make it look very complicated by bringing up the odds, but they also want to simplify it by suggesting every player who picks their lines will play the same lines infinitely. They want us to play by their rules so they can run their simulations. There is no rule saying I can't place all 56 numbers into a wheel using an order that produces multiple jackpot wins matching the bonus number "3" or a rule preventing Brad Duke from using 10% of the 3003 combos plus the bonus number and winning a huge jackpot. 

                    The key is if any player is planning on purchasing a set number of tickets by trying to pick the numbers, whether it be 5, 20, or 300 tickets, is to design a strategy on how much they are going to spend. RJ's latest Ohio Lotto strategy of playing what he thought was his best 20 lines produced a 5 out 6 winner. Anyone can use Duke's 15 number strategy and play for 3 bucks and of course we know the odds against having a five number match are 1000 to 1 when all 5 of the 15 numbers match and even know the huge odds against any 3 tickets having five number match and/or winning the jackpot.

                    We know the odds, we know how difficult (or easy for Brad Duke) it is to trap the winning using a group of numbers. and we know playing the same lines in every drawing is not the best strategy so why do our critics continue to create rules that don't apply to us or continue to tell us what we already know?

                      Playing a 15 number set would only require 95 lines on a 4 if 5 of 15 wheel. But how often can we capture the winning numbers in a set of 15? I keep going back to the set of 35 (recently drawn numbers) because we know for a fact that they produced 17 opportunities for 5 of 5 last year.

                        I believe his powers of perception caused him to have excellent timing, and on a "hunch" he likely had a very good idea that the 15 number set was going to hit and therefore had no problem throwing $300. at it.

                            All these different strategies make my head hurt, seems complicated. I don't play my own numbers because I barely play so if they came up while I wasn't playing I wouldn't be a happy bunny.

                              I Agree! That is why, what we are doing here is extremely simplistic.
