Hi,

I play 5/45 PowerBall and 6/49 Lotto and have looked at the right digit/end digit (e.g. 10 would have a right digit 0 and 23 would have a right digit 3) as a way of selecting numbers, and using 7 per set (as a starting point). Using 7/10 right digits, there are a total of 120 sets, and I have narrowed it down to the following 18 which give good results in my games (for both 5 and 6 number games):

1,  2,  3,  4,  5,  7,  9
1,  2,  3,  5,  7,  9, 10
1,  2,  4,  5,  6,  8,  9
1,  2,  4,  5,  6,  8, 10
1,  2,  4,  5,  7,  8,  9
1,  2,  4,  5,  7,  8, 10
1,  2,  4,  6,  8,  9, 10
1,  3,  4,  5,  6,  7,  9
1,  3,  4,  5,  7,  8, 10
1,  3,  4,  6,  7,  9, 10
1,  3,  5,  6,  7,  9, 10
1,  3,  5,  7,  8,  9, 10
2,  3,  4,  5,  6,  8, 10
2,  3,  4,  6,  7,  9, 10
2,  3,  5,  6,  7,  9, 10
2,  3,  5,  6,  8,  9, 10
2,  4,  5,  6,  7,  8, 10
2,  4,  6,  7,  8,  9, 10

I like to have all numbers in play so I use two sets that together contain ALL of the 10 Right digits. Once I have these two sets I usually filter them to my budget and then play. Over the last 4 draws I have broken even playing between 28 and 35 lines. In yesterdays draw I played more lines and got a 4 match in the lotto and a 3+b match in the LottoPlus. I played the two sets in 55 lines, cost=R280, won R413 so made a small profit. Hope somebody else can find these sets useful in their play.

Your sample set has 4if4 at 95%, this set closes 4if4 and improves 5if5 coverage a little.

Thanks for your input BobP....my sets were chosen using RL's mirror digits (1-6, 2-7, 3-8, 4-9, 5-0) and limiting the number of consecutives. Out of the 120 sets I only kept those with 2 or less mirrors, and 4 or less consecutives which left me with the 18 sets I have. Testing on these sets in my games show a match 7/8 out of 10 draws to one of these 18 sets, and then it's just a matter of choosing which set/s to play. My sets for PowerBall tonight are 1 2 4 5 6 8 9 and 2 3 4 6 7 9 0, and for Lotto/LottoPlus tomorrow 1 2 3 4 5 7 9 and 2 3 5 6 8 9 0

Hello, ramie, you can also use a 49/6, two vtrac ok like two pick 3
We are speaking of endings (last digit 0-9)
Example = 12,25,28 36,45,49 = last digit = 2,5,8, 6,5,9
Or any way to predict pairs, any good sistem of trios and pairs of pick3 can use
On 49/6 (last digit) into two parts, or dividing into two parts, the front digits, ranging from 4 0th
Arises later
