You are not the only one. I haven't seen any useful code in here that was working, beside of two VBA codes and one was mine.

Most of you have a mouth full of nothing. I haven't seen any of your work! Good English isn't enough!

        And AquariusLottery, I'm asking your permission to code based on the method's you prescribed.  I have or will make some modifications to your methodology as I deem necessary, but since it is your system (as first described) I'd prefer your okay to share it with others.  Please let me know if you have any problems with that.

        Hi AlgorithGuru,

        Feel free to code according to the principles I described, or modify at will. Once I published them on LP forum or blog these ideas are free for anybody to utilise for their benefit. Good luck.

        On the other side, consider seriously incorporating doubles in your system. Because of the begger payouts they are a must. My Kansas simulation would probably loose money if I were playing only for singles.

          Thanks for the go ahead, I do have to admit though there was a slight mix up of user names.  I'm terrible sometimes about seeing who wrote what and I when I put your name into that first response I actually meant to address that question to LKMike as I was referring to what he described as the first post under this topic.  As much of a geek as I am when it comes to computers, I actually don't join to many forums as they can be time consuming and I'd rather be coding, doing homework, or trying to get a date ;).  The downside of that is I'm not very good at traversing them.  Sorry about the incorrect interjection of your name.  I might have looked at some of your stuff A.L.  but I'll have to look again to see if any of it is useful for what I'm working on now.  I agree by the way, if I post code or any methodology ideas on here, then its because I'm willing to share them and let anyone use them however they see fit, as long as they don't hold me accountable for losing (or winning for that matter lol).

                So I've essentially finished programming this project.  All the functions work, user interface is complete and all functionality is good.  All I'm adding now are the help page of the program and a few personal touches.  Next all I need to figure out is how to get it to the people that want it.  :)  I back tested it a little bit and seems to be a reliable system although doubles and triples coming up is not figured in and the elimination using the current functions doesn't remove a lot of values.  I'd say on average about 20 to 30.  The program can take inputs of any 3 digit value though not just singles.  It can also do multiple values back to back (not simulatneously - but the result is the same).  I'll work up the program information so it can be usable if there are any questions.  Anyone interested I suppose let me know and I'll figure out a way to get it out there.  I've seen some people use a "dropbox" style web site that offers space to put files to be distributed.  I'll look into those.  Just let me know if its a worthwhile venture.   Best of luck to everyone.  If anyone is interested in the code for the algorithms let me know, I'll be happy to post the source code of the module I built (using VB2010 Express).  Note: the module only, not the entire source code.  :)  Sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.  I've spent a good 30 or 40 hours programming this though.  Hope someone can enjoy it.  :)

                    The program is finished.  I'm trying to find a way to release it now.  I'll let everyone know when the program is available and how to obtain it.  Thanx.  Good luck to all.

                      AlgorithmGuru asked that I post this stand alone program for use with method discussed in this thread.

                      He will be able to address any questions regarding using it.

                            The last one is the correct address.  Thank you so much CarliG!  To everyone:  I coded it using VisualBasic 2010 express edition.  I only tested it on windows 7.  If you're running an older version of windows (say XP or vista) it should still work, but may not.  If you do decide to download it please read the help section FIRST (the big button at the bottom of the program).  The reason being I put a few disclaimers in there.  Just want to make sure everyone is on the same page.  The program is not designed to interfere with your computer in any way or alter/add/modify/delete any files or operation of your computer.  With all executables from an "unknown" source you should always run virus scan although I promise there is no malicious code in the program I built.  But doing "due diligence" with executable files should be the norm and not the exception.  If anyone experiences any bugs, problems or functionality/computational issues please let me know ASAP.  Let me know what you did to create the problem and what operating system you are using.  That way I can try and fix any problems.  Best of luck to everyone!  And let me know what you think of the program in general.  Special thanx to LKMIKE for allowing me to use his system in the code.  Anyone curious about how the system works should talk to him.  I'm just a coder :)  Problems with the code or functionality I'll be happy to answer.  It's a pretty straight forward program.  Have fun!  Cheers.

                            If it's not consistent, it's irrelevant :)

                              Neat program.  I run xp and I had to download netframework4 which was no big deal. I really like the math selections.  I've been using a lot of these on my different look thread.  Nice.  I have to try the feature with the entering of two draws back to back.  Keep up with the good work.
