Create an "All Draws" Game in Lotsoft 5
Download the following text file and save to your Desktop or place it in a new folder. Remember the name of the folder.
Open Lotsoft 5
Click Pick 3
Click "Add a State" button
A window will open.
In the "Info" area enter "AllStates" (without the quotes)
Click the "Add" button
Click "Import Draws"
Make sure the following selections in the screen shot below are selected:
Click the "Select drawfile" buttton
Browse to the location where you downloaded the text file.
In the screen shot below I saved the text file "AllStatesDraws.txt" to C:\Pick3SystemLotsoft5DataFile\AllStates
Click the "Start Import" button.
You should see a counter at the bottom. There are over 10,000 drawings so this may take about 30 seconds.
Once all the draws are imported you should see the following window below. Screen shot.
Click the OK button.
You see the "Update Statistics" window open.
Change the date in the "Update statistics beginning with draws from" box to match the "First drawdate".
In the screen shot below I changed the date to 5/17/1987
You should see either an area box at the bottom that is either all white (see arrow in screen shot below) or "Calculate Statistics"
Click either the white box or the calculate statistics. This may take a minute or 2 to calculate.
You should see a status % bar at the bottom.
Once all the drawings are calculated click the OK button. See image below.
Click the "Alert System" button. See screen shot below.
Click the drop-down arrow and select "AllStates (M)
Then click the "Calculate" button.
Th calculations may take around 30 seconds to a minute.
See screen shot below:
Once the calculations are complete you should see a list of times with the highest "Times Due". For example in the screen shot below we see the SPAIR (Split Pair) of 5 x 9 is currently out 765 draws with an average skip of 98, median skip of 69. There are a total of 10 straight sets we can play:
509, 519, 529, 539, 549, 559, 569, 579, 589, 599
