A Happy New Year to all serious game players. I hope 2013 will far exceed the last year in many ways.

Like Many Gail Howard Advantage Plus software users I end up selecting 30 number that are potential winners only too win a two number prize. I have grappled with how to reduce the pool of numbers for a long time. I now concentrate on playing on paper until I reach a point where I can select 4 to 5 numbers from 20 of 15 numbers consistently before I use funds.

This is what I do. First I use the Lottery Advantage Scoreboard sheet on page164 of the Lottery Master Guide to record my selections from the Euromillions 5 from 50 game reminding myself why I picked a number. Did it appear as a strong pattern e.g #03 was a perfect double bottom of 13 would be written as 3^{db13 } or #28 was hot and hitting 28^{HH}

I end up picking 30 numbers which all have their merits, some stronger than others. Once I have completed that I do exactly the same for the last digit, recording all data on the Lottery Advantage Scoreboard.

As you know it is easier to select numbers from a pool of 10 numbers than 50 numbers.

I am working on a different way of using Advantage Plus and would welcome ways to make the method better/more accurate. This is what I have done. I printed the results history of my game then overwrote the last digit equivalent result into the New Jersey Cash 5/40 results because I don’t play that game and it is a Pick 5 game. This is how I developed the last digit equivalent.

I assign each digit as follows

Last Digit 01

One occurance = 01

Two occurrences in the same draw entered as 01-11

Three occurrences in the same draw entered as 01-11-21

Four occurrences in the same draw entered as 01-11-21-31

Last Digit 02

One occurrence = 02

Two occurrences in the same draw entered as 02-12

Three occurrences in the same draw entered as 02-12-22

Four occurrences in the same draw entered as 02-12-22-32

Last Digit 03

One occurrence = 03

Two occurrences in the same draw entered as 03-13

Three occurrences in the same draw entered as 03-13-23

Four occurances in the same draw entered as 03-13-23-33

Last Digit 09

One occurrence = 09

Two occurrences in the same draw entered as 09-19

Three occurrences in the same draw entered as 09-19-29

Four occurrences in the same draw entered as 09-19-29-39

Last Digit 0

One occurrence = 10

Two occurrences in the same draw entered as 10-20

Three occurrences in the same draw entered as 10-20-30

Four occurrences in the same draw entered as 10-20-30-40

For example results

Draw 1 16-29-32-36-41

Draw 4 04-07-33-37-39

The last digit equivalent would be entered into Advantage Plus as: 01-02-06-09-16

And 03-04-07-09-17

What is interesting is that as anticipated because I am essentially working with 10 numbers there are many repeat hits and adjacents. In fact, in my last digit game, skips of up to 04 occur most often, 2 repeats and 3 adjacents occur every game!!! Chart B is really helpful in focusing on just four skips.

The real skill comes from being able to read Chart I Odd/Even to anticipate whether Odd or Even bias will be next draw.

For example if I determine form the Lottery Advantage Scoreboard for the last digit equivalent that 01-04-07-09-19 will hit, I go the Lottery Advantage Scoreboard for the Euromillions 5/50 game looking for numbers with the above last digits. To be on the safe side I may wheel all 20 numbers generated by the last digits. You will find, as I have, a few number(s) that appear really strong on the Lottery Advantage Scoreboard for the Euromillions but are not part of 20 number pool, select it for your pool.

My development is a modified way of using A* plus and by no means complete, I am learning. You may spot a regular occurrence in another chart that can help refine this method please do share your thoughts and ideas so we can make some money. This method has its limitations, for example recently in my game digit #0 hit 10 times in a row. Chart 5 only records up to seven hits in a row.

My best result in 18 months was recently when I selected 4 from a pool of 13 numbers.

Since 2 repeats and 3 adjacents occur every game is there an easier way of looking at a printed version of Chart 4 (Drawing Since Hit Chart) to easily determine the three adjacent numbers.

Chart I - Odd /Even analysis. Has anyone looked at the bias history F6 button and looked at what happens next most frequently after each O/E balance reading. For example

e.g E+1 occurred 80 times on 500 games and was followed most often by ¼

Would this be a worthwhile exercise?

Let’s strike the jackpot in 2013.
