All of you who use pairs in your predictions and systems, I have a rocking new analysis tool coming for you!

It's a concept I've been working on for a while, but when "a certain website" went offline a few months ago and I started getting lots of requests for pairs, I stepped up my work on the tool — and now I'm nearly ready to unleash it.

All I can say is that I'm pretty stoked to get this thing out to you all.  If you thought that "other site" had good pairs reporting, then I'm about to change your definition of what is "good pairs reporting".

OK, so here's exactly what "that other site" used to show for their pairs reporting:

(That is an exact screen capture of their page.)

So here's what "that site" allowed you to see with pairs:

  1. You can see Front, Back, and Split straight (exact order) pairs
  2. You can see the pairs for one game
  3. You can see pairs that are accumulated for the entire drawing history of that game
  4. You can see late and very late pairs (late is 200 or more draws out, and very late is 300 or more draws out)

That's all.

But what if you want to see boxed (any order) pairs for the game?  Nope, can't do it.

How about seeing all of the non-positional pairs for the game (all combinations of two digits for each drawing).  No, you were referred to their search page, where you don't get all the pairs listed, and you certainly don't get what non-positional pairs are late or very late.

What if you want to see a shorter date range?  Nope.

How about if you want to see the pairs drawn in a prior year — or ANY date range for that matter?  Not a chance.

Can you sort the chart so the late pairs appear at the top?  No.

How about if you want to take a grouping of different states and view the pairs for the various games combined in one report?  No way.

I think you get the drift.  I took all the things I would personally want to do, put them in a wish list, and figured out how to make it happen. 

I was actually not very confident that I could make such a flexible and powerful pairs tool work on a Web site, because in order to make it do what I wanted, I would have to create a database and software that sorts through hundreds of thousands of drawings in a second or two — and make it so that hundreds of people could do that at the same time while still providing answers in a second or two — or less.

When I got the first version of this thing running I was actually pretty amazed at how fast it is able to churn through the data.  I can literally run a report that totals up the pairs for every game played in the USA and Canada, for the entire drawing history of every game, in two seconds.  I was so happy with the performance that below the report I added the statistics showing the exact number of seconds (with fractions) that it took to generate the report.

So when will the new pairs tool be released?  I'm shooting for this week.  It's pretty much finished, but I'm in the process of doing all the normal testing, writing the help text, and integrating it into the site.

As with all the best features at Lottery Post, it will be for Platinum members.  Of course, all other members will have full access to the tool as a trial, always reporting data from one particular month, rather than providing access to the full drawing database.
