Distribution and Count Tracking Chart
Maintaining an inventory of lottery numbers is important, but keeping track
of the lottery number doubles is the primary concern with this workout.
Again, this is a paper and pencil workout where data is logged on standard
sheets of graph paper.
Enter Distribution and Count at the top of the page.
Use up to 14 consecutive columns to log winning lottery combinations in
Draw date order.
There is space for about 75 combinations
At top right of the page, enter 'LT' 'LR' '#' and 'CR as column headers.
LT - Long Term
LR - Last Round
# - lottery numbers 0 thru 9
CR - Current Round
Here are current totals for TX330 as of 1025D drawing
LT LR # CR
140 16 0 IIIII IIIII IIIII II
155 8 1 IIIII IIIII IIIII
147 13 2 IIIII IIIII IIIII IIIII IIIII

165 12 7 IIIII IIIII IIIII IIIII
149 20 8 IIIII IIIII IIIII IIIII I
131 15 9 IIIII IIIII IIIII IIIII III
As you can see, lottery numbers 1 and 4 are lagging, but thats not a good reason to
Also, lottery numbers 2 and 5 have highest inventory totals.
Note: A Round is all of the data logged on a single sheet of graph paper.
I will have to start a new page soon.
When I do, the CR totals will be entered in the LR column and the total added to
the LT column.
Lottery Number Doubles
Question - How do you start a tracking chart for Lottery Number Doubles??
Because lottery number doubles can be infrequent, this particular workout sheet uses what is known as combined Double/Gap entries on adjacent lines.
Again, all entries are individual graph paper cells.
ACTIVE and INACTIVE CELLS
Basic information regarding ACTIVE and INACTIVE cells.
There are 10 doubles, therefore, there are 10 Active cells - 1 per double.
There are 10 Active cells, therefore, there are 10 Gap numbers, 1 thru 10.
Data is entered into the Double column on a 'add one', 'take away one' basis.
That is, if 22 is added to the bottom of the column, the 22 already in the string has be
marked off in some way.
In other words, the 22 already in the string becomes an INACTIVE cell.
While inactive cells have no role, they must remain in place.
Therefore, the method of marking them off, a strike over, must not completely
I mark them off by drawing a light line though them.
Important - There can never be more or less than 10 ACTIVE cells.
If you have more then you probably forgot to mark one off.
Name of the workout on Top line - L# Doubles (Doubles/Gaps)
Beginning with Line 3, column 4, enter the 10 doubles in numerical order.
Lets say the next double is '44'
44 would be entered at the bottom of the string
The Gap number is determined by counting the number of active cells between the
44 added and the 44 already in the stream.
In this instance, the Gap number is '6'
The 6 is entered into the cell column adjacent to the 44
The initial 44 is marked off.
Note that the initial 44 has been marked off.
Lets say the next double is 22, which would be added to the bottom of the string.
Counting up the stream, skipping the 44 that is marked off, the gap number is 8.
Note there are 10 active cells and 2 inactive cells.
This same procedure is followed for each double added to the list.
The Gap number column remains intact, ie. no strike overs.
It is sometimes helpful to know if one or more doubles seem to come up more frequently
than the others.
Therefore, at the top right of the graph sheet enter:
and then maintain a running count as each double is logged.
It is also important to maintain a running count of the Gap numbers.
There won't be any useful trends until 30 or more doubles and gap numbers are
On a separate sheet of graph paper turned sideways, enter the doubles in
graph column 3.

Will line up when logged on graph paper.
The '*' signifies last drawing.
The 'end of line' totals are increased by one each time a double is added.
Double '44' has been 'out' for a long time, and is definitely due.
In fact, I'm playing one double set with 44 every drawing.
Double 99 would be a good second choice.
Double 77 repeated after missing 23 consecutive opportunities.
Doubles 11, 33 and 66 are frequently drawn.
The entries there are, the more likely some useful trends will emerge.
I realize all of this is new and probably difficult to follow, but these tracking
charts need to exist and be updated.
Sooner or later every player may decide to risk money on a lottery number double.
This tracking chart entries provide some useful history data and provide ideas of what the 'best choice' is.
Without some level of guidance, the only thing a player can do is make a
'WAG', wild ass guess.
