Nice observation.

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

132 of the last 811 MM drawings since the matrix change had all 5 numbers in the previous 13 drawings.
32 of those had all 5 numbers in the previous 8 drawings.

    Interesting statistic.

    But for the same set of MM drawings (6/24/2005 through 3/29/2013), I count only 22 in which all 5 numbers are in the previous 13 drawings, and 11 in which all 5 numbers are in the previous 8 drawings.

    And among those 22 sets of 13 previous drawings, there were 37 to 46 unique numbers, "typically" 40 to 44 (middle 50%).

    For example, for 3/29/2013, the regular numbers 25,31,36,46,53 appeared in 18,44,1,38,25 drawings earlier respectively, encompassing 46,55,5,54,44 unique numbers respectively.

    So I would say that all 5 numbers appeared in 44 previous drawings (max distance) with 55 unique numbers (associated with max distance).

    Do you agree?

    If so, I wonder which of us has made a counting error.

    I have spot-checked my results, and I have not (yet) found an error.

        No, just a horrible typo on my part.  I had grabbed all the numbers in one line from my spreadsheet; then I mangled them when I edited it for the posting.  Sorry.

        I got exactly what you got for the 3/29/2013, to wit:  the drawing was 25,31,36,46,53, which appeared in 6,18,44,1,38 drawings earlier respectively, encompassing 25,46,55,5,54 unique numbers respectively.

        We seem to be counting things for individual drawings in the same way, at least manually.

        The question still remains why we accumulated different totals.

        Just a curiosity.  If you want to pursue this together, I suspect private messages would be better.

          I think the question is.....

           Does the last 35 number or 8 to 13 game strategy reduce the amount of combinations to an acceptable betting amount, knowing that only 16% (132/811) of the games are going to fit that winning criteria. There is nothing the matter with stalking a win if the economics are there.

            I don't see the above as a viable method. But then again, maybe someone else is seeing an angle I'm not taking into account.

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

            "We seem to be counting things for  individual drawings in the same way, at least manually."

            The information I posted was done by a computer program, only the coloring and some data was removed manually. 

            I occassionlay recheck my MM file with the MM file posted at LP and USAMega.  In the past it has always been the same as the one posted on the official website.  I haven't done that for a while but when I get a chance I will do it again.  If the file is correct then the program print out will be too.

            If you recheck your file with the same source then you might discover why we get different results.

              Of course!  That goes without saying.

              I am reasonably certain the problem is not with the data.

              The problem is likely in the implementation of the analysis program, yours or mine or both.

              I never believe I am infallible.  I have checked the details of my implementation several times, and I cannot find a problem .  But that does not mean there is none.  I dare say:  the same applies to your implementation.  My interest in pursuing this offline with you (in private messages) is only to confirm the correctness of my implementation or to find my error, for my own benefit.

              It's a moot point.  We are both saying the same thing in concept, to wit:  the number of times all 5 numbers of a drawing can be found in 8 to 13 previous drawings is relatively small.  (I just believe it is even smaller.)  And I added that we are talking about 37 to 46 unique numbers, no small set of numbers.

                  Aha!  "What we've got here is a fail-ure to com-mun-icate!" Wink.

                  (It helps to see the humor if you are familiar with the Paul Newman movie "Cool Hand Luke").

                  Originally, you wrote:  "132 of the last 811 MM drawings since the matrix change had all 5 numbers in the previous 13 drawings.  32 of those had all 5 numbers in the previous 8 drawings."

                  I interpreted that to mean exactly 13 drawings and exactly 8 drawings.

                  That made sense to me because you were responding to JKing's statement that Ronnie316's "35 numbers will typically hit within the last 8 to 13 games".  Presumably, JKing did not mean "or fewer".

                  However, it is clear now that you meant "13 or fewer drawings" and "8 or fewer drawings".

                  I had also interpreted "32 of those" to mean "32 of the those 811 MM drawings".  But it is clear now that you meant "32 of those 132".

                  FYI, I count 131 drawings with all 5 numbers in the previous 13 or fewer drawings.  This is because I do not consider any drawings before "the last 811 MM drawings since the matrix change".  Apparently you did.

                    "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.

                    Hi RJOh....do you have a specific way/strategy of selecting the 10-20 lines to play from your several hundred, or do you select it randomly? Interested for my 6/49 to find a way of "extracting" a small group (10-30 lines) of possible winning lines from a large group of several hundred containing several 3/6 and 4/6 matches (and sometimes but rarely a 5/6 match).

                      Last night on Fri. Mar. 29, the last 35 drawn numbers hit 2 of 5.......

                      01 03 04 06 07 08 09 11 12 13 14 15 17 19 20 21 22 24 25 27 30 32 33 34 35 37 38 39 41 42 43 46 49 51 56

                       

                      Friday, March 29, 2013     25 . 31 · 36 · 46 · 53    21           4$34 Million

                      I don't know why you care about matching 2 of 5.  For MM, it pays nothing unless you also match the mega number.

                      Assuming the historical MM data [1] is a reasonable random sampling [2], "typically" (middle 50%ile) 20 to 43 unique numbers from the previous 6 to 11 drawings match at least 3 of 5 in the next drawing [3].

                      That's about 15,500 to 962,600 combinations of 5 numbers.

                      And "typically" 11 to 33 unique numbers from the previous 3 to 7 drawings match at least 2 of 5 in the next drawing [3].

                      That's about 460 to 237,340 combinations of 5 numbers.

                      [2] It would be better to use one or more simulations.

                      [3] The full range is:  5 to 53 unique numbers from the previous 1 to 33 drawings to match at least 3 of 5.  And 5 to 47 unique numbers from the previous 1 to 20 drawings to match at least 2 of 5.

                            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

                          Nice work x1kosmic , 44 is one of the MM all time great bonus numbers. From the MM Stats page.

                            The object is to find a pattern that produces better than average odds and use it to win a jackpot. The most recentky drawn 35 numbers produced 17 opportunities to hit 5 of 5 last year............

                            Quoting Stack from an ealier post........

                            The probability is about 1 in 12 drawings that any 35 numbers should match five numbers or 9 times a year.

                            I know it creates too many combinations for live play, and thats why I use abrieviated wheels.

                                     One thing though,  when your looking at where the, numbers came from,

                                           frm previous draws,    Try to see where they  REALLY,  came from,

                                    the middle?,  the end numbers?, the first few numbers,  of any particular draw, you know ... like that.

                                                                            thanks for responding   by the way,....   Smile
