@ flossdog, I think you're getting the sense of my number patterns. We are here to minimize the numbers with certain patterns like 6,4,0,1 and 3,5,8 but maximize the hitting chances..
According to my lottery program, in checking the last 555 PB draws including July 2 here are the stats on that code:
85 draws had 3 numbers +bonus
11 draws had 4 numbers +bonus
3 draws had 5 numbers + bonus
Using those 18 numbers generates 8,568 combinations with a 0.54% of hitting the jackpot which is 1/2 of 1% playing 8500+ combos!
The last time 4 numbers came in on this code was 3/22/14, previous to this was
and then only once in 2/04/2012 almost a year before that!!
The code hit 4 numbers 3 times in 2011 and NONE in 2010!!!
Mind you by playing all 8500+ combos includes bonus ball. Overall this is chasing these 18 numbers that appear mathematically once every 584 drawings to hit the jackpot. You have hit 3/555=1 jackpot every 185 drawings playing 8568 combos. So given that your 358 combo should not hit 4 numbers or better again for a long time. Even if you wheeled these down your expectations are so inifinitesimal
I would rather play quick picks( which I have a copy of a mega millions that hit 4/5 with the bonus ball on the next line with a $5 quick pick) and hope for the best. Unfortunately I don't believe this code or any code is better than random with any lottery.
