Looking at the output and because of the wheel design, the first five number are in the first line. So if you go low to high, you'll have lines with four or more low numbers and you go high to low, you'll have four or high numbers the same line. It would be very difficult to get a consistent number distribution using a large combo wheel, but you don't want to have several lines with four numbers from the same decade or four consecutive numbers either.

I don't want to argue with the math critics that 1-2-3-4-5-6 has the same odds of being drawn as any other combo, but because more combinations have three or less numbers from the same decade, consecutive, or last number, there is better probability the results will have that type of number distribution. There will be drawings with all even or all odd numbers too, but a huge majority of the drawings will have between 1 and 5 even numbers and the majority will have between 2 and 4.

I think that takes us back to RJOh math and logic which improves the probability of winning by playing evenly distributed combinations.

I think the best system is to anticipate that something will happen and than choose the right timing for betting it. As in all even numbers as an example, even though the probability is low the odds can be BETTER if the timing is right. It make me think of the girl who anticipate that "When the MM jackpot is at \$112 Million, I will win". The timing was right, she bought a ticket that day and won. Easy, right?

Timing is everything.

Sure looks easy.

Until you try it. LOL.

Seeing this reminded me that I used to keep track of numbers playing by position for all the jackpot games in Tx and MM and PB. I never got close to winning anything with that system and when my old computer crashed it took all those files with it, I never tried to rebuild them.

Back in February I came close to matching 6/6 when I matched 5/6 using a similar strategy with 10 lines, I guess I got lucky.

I don't really track these numbers, I wrote a program that uses my regular data files to count and record which numbers followed which number and the trends at the time.  Then looking at the trends and numbers in the last drawing I pick combinations with numbers in those positions following the most likely trend.  I got the idea after seeing a graph jadelottery posted in the jackpot forum last year.

Winning always looks easy when someone else does it.

That's a word. No program can do that unless you pull in 10 digits for both.

Sorry you are confused, no one has offered to sell any system or is planning to in this thread.  Any ideas for a system you get from this thread you will have to do the work of designing it yourself for yourself.

Yes especially if you wouldn't feel foolish after spending \$1227 and only matching 3 for \$2 or worst winning nothing.  \$20 is the max I can spend and not feel foolish about winning nothing or very little.

Besides, I ran a program that based on previous drawings predicts at least four of the numbers of the winning combination will be in these positions:

1) 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 20
2) 9 10 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 24 29
3) 5 14 15 17 18 19 21 23 25 28 30 31
4) 26 27 28 29 30 31 32 34 36 39
5) 27 30 31 33 34 36 37 38 44
6) 39 40 41 45 46 47 48 49

and it's hard to wheel that many lines that stay within those parameters.

I suggest that you use Covermaster and generate a dense wheel of roughly 49 numbers. Maybe a 5 if 5.

Paste the numbers in Excel or your own program and apply your most resonable filters until you get a playable amount of combinations.

Fill in the tickets, or print the lines with your program and printer.

Validate the tickets and cash in after the drawing.

This information is worth cash.

I don't use Excel and have no desire to learn it or own a copy of it.  Besides, creating a wheel that size with that condition using CoverMaster would lock up my computer for weeks.  My work ups have to be quick and affordable.

I'll be using a similar set of numbers developed from last night's drawing to filter the 10 lines I'll play for Wednesday drawing.  Since #22 has only been the lowest number in three OCL drawings, the list will be slim for the lower positions.

Thanks for the suggestion, maybe you can use it with one of the games you play.  Good luck.

Excel offers room for improvisation. I already used the technique, only without using Covermaster. I have my own wheeling program designed by myself.

Does this mean you are a Danial Brian fan?

I'm a fan of Vince McMahon.  Anyone who can make a billion dollars+ off stuff like this deserves an award of some kind.   Triple H too.  Didn't he marry Vince's daughter?   Only in American!

Correct on every point. It just goes to show what can be done when a person is willing to go to any lengths to put out a quality product. It take a very specialized talent to produce live broadcasting.
