When we look at how rarely a draw is all odd or all even or all low or all high, why would we think breaking the lottery numbers into roughly equal groups would have a different kind of outcome from any one group?

18 hot or most drawn numbers are going to bounce around zero, one or two of the future drawn numbers most of the time.

Would have to wheel say 6 hot, 6 average and 6 cold numbers to have a shot at winning something more then two number wins.

The key word is "look"

We know all even or odd or low or high numbers are rare because can look at a draw file and count their occurrences.  For example I play Ohio Classic Lotto which has had 969 drawings so far and only 10-12 drawings fall within any of those categories which is less than 2%.  And when the same is done with the most popular numbers, the number is 14 which is not much better.

My perspective is, although rare it does happen. It's a lot easier to anticipate something your "looking" for.

There are examples of people who have done it, like the guy in AZ that bought the 5 number match six times trying to get the bonus number correct. All because he was "looking" for those numbers to hit.

Do you ever get a strong feeling that your numbers are right, and they hit?

I'm a system player so I don't have any particular numbers to play.  I look for commonalities among winning combinations and apply them to the combinations I pick to play.

There really isn't much difference between playing favored numbers in combinations on 20 lines than playing 20 favored combos on 20 lines.

"Have you ever had the feeling the commonalities you're using are right and they will hit?"

Yes, I always have that feeling.  I usually pick the 10-20 lines I play from a group of several hundred I generate which I write to a temporary file and I leave my system program setup until after the drawing.

After the drawing I check my play file to see if won anything and then I enter the winning combination into my system program to see if the commonalities I used could have picked it and check the temporary file to see if I picked it or something close and rejected it.

So far this year my system has worked for the local Classic Lotto (5of6) but I have yet to get a decent win for PB and MM.

Right now I'm using past 35 numbers. They hit 5 of 5 last year 17 times.

The probability is about 1 in 12 drawings that any 35 numbers should match five numbers or 9 times a year. We know there will be a group of 25 numbers that will match five number in five consecutive drawings every drawing and can use that with an observation by BobP on another thread that even if we used all 56 numbers once, only five of the lines can match at least one number or basically a 5/25 drawing.

In the last drawing only one number repeated from the "25" so the five winning numbers were found by using 1 of 25 with 4 of 31. Since the number 46 was a repeat number, that five number match was basically 1 of 5 with 4 of 31 and 167,307 less lines than are needed for a full 35 number wheel. To get your best 35 numbers depends on the average of how many numbers of the last 25 numbers are drawn. If the average is about 2 hits, 23 of those numbers are useless in your 35 numbers. If that's the average, to get a five number match using the last 35 numbers drawn, 3 of the numbers must be found in the sixth, seventh, and eighth drawing back.

Statistically something like that should happen once every 12 drawings and happened once every six drawings last year. A full wheel has 324,632 combinations, but you'll probably find when it did happen it was 2 or 3 of the first 20 numbers with 2 or 3 of the next 15 numbers and the winning combo is in those 206,150 lines. I reduced it to 119,700 combos by using any 3 of the first 20 numbers with any 2 of the next 15, but that is still too many lines. To reduce the number of combination, you really need to eliminate some of the 17 or 18 number from the first group and some of the 13 or 14 numbers from the second group.

As far as i know no MM or PB drawing has had all 5 numbers repeat at any time throught the games history.

That's true and it's true for MM even when you combine its history as BigGame.

I tracked Buckeye5(5/37) when Ohio had it and I now track its Rolling Cash5(5/39) game and combinations of fives didn't start repeating in either game until after 0.1% of their possible combinations had been drawn so I expect the same to happen with PB after 5000 drawings and with MM after 3800 drawings.

Nice observation.

All your 35 numbers will typically hit within the last 8 to 13 games, with some exceptions of course.

You are a slave to the choices you have made.  jk

What's up, Ronnie316,

I just wanted to visit, for a second,  I ve been reading along ...

and I picked 25, numbers from Past ( 35 or so ) Draws

disregarding, the first number,  and last number,  of each draw,

I picked numbers from the 'middle'

3, 5, 6, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 17, 18, 20, 22, 24, 27, 29, 30, 32, 34, 37, 38, 41, 42, 51, 53

25 numbers for Mega Millins, 4/2/13

I've noticed that bonus balls 42, and 44,  seem pretty good lately,  I'll try

44
