Hey forum members!  I'm new here and just wanted to get my feet wet and say hello to everybody.  I'm a math hobbyist, computer geek and in school for programming.  I've been working on designing a "lottery picker" tool for some time now and hope to finish at least a few different prototype methodologies in the near future.  Believe it or not, I didn't really know a site like this existed.  Silly me.  Of course it does!  :)  I look forward to reading about other people's methodoliges and ideas about successful prediction of lottery numbers.  Of course the mathematics of probability regarding independant events says it is impossible to predict with accuracy any future occurence based on preceding events (because of the inherent nature of the definition of - "independent" events), but I like the idea of tracking order in chaos.  And of course if successful, the potential windfall.  lol.  :)  I actually also had a question and instead of creating a-whole-nother thread for a simple question (a rookie one I'm going to assume at that) I'll just ask it now.  So I live in PA but I'm sure many states have similar pay tables based on the mathematics inherent of the system and projected odds.  So if someone plays a daily number to hit on a 50/50 bet (straight OR box) on the same ticket, and the number hits straight..... then what is the payout?  Is it the .50 cent straight PLUS the .50 cent box payout?  Or is it only the greater of the two (the straight hit)?  For instance a .50 cent straight hit in PA pays $250 (for pick 3), and the box hit is $80, is a 50/50 ticket that hits straight worth $330 or $250?  Thanks in advance for any help.  Glad to be here and I'm going to go nosing around now and see what kind of cool stuff everyone else is working on!

              Welcome  AlgorithmGuru, glad to have another programmer around. Especially one with a lottery picker. I hope your lottery picker is better than the last programmer with a lottery picker, because his lottery picker never picked anything "better" than 4+1 playing 175,000 lines per draw. It was more like a "how to lose clinic" lottery picker. Just sayin, I how hope your lottery picker is "better" than his lottery picker. Lets see what you got. We are all waiting with great anticipation.

                Easy now Ronnie, don't put to much pressure on the new programmer, he's only been with us a couple of hours. Give him to at least 11:00 AM

                to pull off a flawless 5+0 like you did a couple of times.  Wink

                          Really?  You're still whining about me?  (And twisting the truth, by the way.)  Get over this sick obsession you have with me.  It's incredibly pathetic.

                            That would a helpful presentation from Al. It's been almost half a day now, I'm sure he's fired up and ready to rip up all the record books.  Dance
