Thanks for the information but how exactly do I read and make sense of the results? I understand the right chart with the Powerball frequency as it's easy to read however I'm not sure how to read the data on the left chart. What do all of the different numbers and colors represent? Again, thank you for sharing your findings.

The numbers that have a fill color of Blue or Grey pertain to each individual group - Odd Groups have Blue - Even Groups have Gray. Only reason for this is to seperate the different Groups in my master file.  The Group numbers that are filled with Green tells me that the two or more lines involved have matched at least 4 of 5 numbers in both of these Group Lines.  The numbers with a Yellow fill tells me that this number with at least 2 other numbers in that same line match 3 numbers in another Group which is listed in the Related Group field.  I used the Related Group field as a cross-refference between Groups.

Hope this is of some help to you...

but every time I play and lose then I think that I could have bought something else for the \$2 - does anyone else here think that way?   So far this year I've purchased \$20 in tickets ended up with \$0 winnings and I'm like I could have bought something else for \$20 -

Could be worst, you could have bought something else and be thinking if only you had bought a lottery ticket you would be a millionaire.  If losing \$2 on a lottery ticket hurts so much, why buy them?

I think he was looking for something a little more precise that requires no thought like a combination to play.

I think exactly that way with scratch offs, I think because it's over so quick.  I don't buy them anymore.

I never think that with draw games.  I get lots of enjoyment out of thinking about winning, so I just count it as money spent towards entertainment.  Other people spend money on movies, eating out, magazines, and other stuff that has no appeal to me.  I spend my extra money on lottery.

Yeah, why should we be required to think?

We aren't if we buy a quick pick but some players don't want to do either when buying a ticket.

How may we help these struggling indecisive players?

Offer to play for them with their money and take about a 60% cut as a "picker fee"

Of course

I got rid of my Poland spring water deliveries and some premium channels on my cable.

Now my tickets cost me next to nothing!

Good job!

Here is a combination he can play 01 06 10 20 49  PB 23.  With any luck, he might be sharing the winnings with the other 15,000 + playing this combination.

 ************* PB GRP 135 2009-03-04 1 6 44 49 55 36 35 136 2010-05-26 1 6 10 13 20 32 35 137 2010-12-11 1 8 10 19 20 23 35 138 2012-08-25 1 6 7 20 49 23 35 *************

Good Luck & Best Wishes To ALL.................
