I don't understand why the first pair of digits need to be 00 to 14?  Are you talking about the first pair of lexi digits?

I did a reread but still don't understand how this works.  I would almost need a pictorial example of an analysis to understand I think.  But..... I don't expect anyone to put anymore time into it this for me.  I don't get it and that is fine.  I'll leave the thread for those that do.

Thanks for trying!

Pennsylvania 5/30 Treasure Hunt lottery game Lexi range 000001 through 142506

The highest front 2 digits of the Lexi pair can only be 14 (00xxx through 14xxxx)

Whereas a 5/39 lottery game Lexi range is 000001 through 575757

The highest front 2 digits of the Lexi pair can only be 57 (00xxx through 57xxxx)

Ok, I can understand 00 - 14 concept now for PA 5/30 TH first Lexi pair.  But not how that would translate back into numbers played.

Are you analyzing the other Lexi by pairs like the 00-14 described or individually?

Disregard this, I think I'm starting to understand the concept now.

I guess from this point forward reading the Help might start making some sense.

Thanks.

I see your in PA so I suggest that you start with your 5-30 game.  The odds for hitting the first 3 digits

are 1 in 143, "you have to count 00" and the first 4 are far less than a standard pick-4.  The MSD is the

leftmost digit and the LSD is the rightmost digit.  When playing a 5-30 the first pair of digits will be 00 to 14

which is far less than that of a standard P-3 game.   The overall odds are the same as if picking numbers

but the lexie is a little more forgiving.  It's possible to miss every lexie value and still win a second level

prize as opposed to picking numbers where each miss drops one prize level.   Run lots of after the fact

setups to learn how each option works and it's effect on the outcome.   After each drawing I update the

drawfile then I go through the steps for all positions looking for indicators that might have led me to pick

the value that hit.  When doing this don't use the bias just look at the overall data.  I try to base my choice

on the overall without using the bias search but it's not always possible.   If I don't see enough indicators

pointing to one digit then I will use the bias search tool.   This is a different method and I mentioned in a

earlier post that it was like playing a game of chess, might be better described as a battleship game.

So I watched the videos again...

Are you trying to predict the first 4 lexi values correct, then letting the program generate the remanding values(lines) and filter from there.

Or are you taking sniper shots with all six values to create one line?

Thanks.

Picking the first 4 is a starting point for most cash-5 games.  If the first 4 can be hit then any ticket you

play from those generated should pay a prize.  I myself try for 5of6 or 6of6 depending on how the data

analysis goes.   Setting the first 4 lexie digits correctly and then using the Filt-2 option will always give

you at least one 4of5 match, many times in less than 10 lines.  It's possible that Filt-2 will trap the 5of5

but not always.

The lexie tool I use is a stripped down version that does not have all the secondary filters.  I use the steps

1oo% of the time as they give me the best results.

Here is a pic of the version I use.  The version I uploaded to LP gives the user a number of different methods

to select/wheel/filter as some don't like the steps.

From the help file I understand what Step values are intellectually.  Analyzing, interpreting, and selecting is another matter.

I see in version that you just posted that you have a 'Suggested Value',  I'm assuming in your version there is more to the suggested value then

just the number with the most occurrences.

Thanks.

The suggest option was never completed, about all it does is print "suggested value --> 1 on the screen.

I never got around to finishing the code, LOL.

"From the help file I understand what Step values are intellectually.  Analyzing, interpreting, and selecting is another matter."

The lottery is random, about all we can do is study the data and then make our best guess.  When we look at the history for

the steps we can see runs for each value scattered throughout the data.   I find that many times two of the steps will hit the

most obvious and the third will be a unlikely value.  Always check your choices after the drawing to see where you hit or missed.

The line results can be misleading because of the conversion.  Lets say that the lexie value for the last game was 092541 for

the set = 02-05-21-23-32.  Again lets say that we played  lexie 072541 for line 01 25 27 29 31.  In this example only one step

value was missed "Position-2 step-3" which resulted in 311 =7 where the correct value was and 312=9.   I try to do full lexie

setups if the data supports it but even when I feel most of my choices are good there are always a couple that could go either

way.  What I do in these cases is do two or more full setups changing only the values in question.  For my 5-39 the first four

lexie values are critical so when I change values for the secondary runs I only adjust those values.  The 5th and 6th values are

needed for a 5of5 but hitting the first 4 will often produce at least a 3of5 regardless of which digits I play in the 5th and 6th

position.  Your chances for a 4of5 are also greatly increased if the first 4 lexie values are correct.

Hitting the lexie is challenging but on the flip-side if you manage it then you can win on a single line bet.  I think many will do

a few setups and then move on.   I have been using the steps for years and still have bad days but I feel it's worth the few

minutes it takes to generate a line or two.   Some will love it and some will hate it, it comes with a uninstall option for the

latter.

The Lexi's and the steps together are a challenging combination when first trying to learn learn the program.

On one hand I like the concept as you aren't dealing directly with the actual numbers drawn.  But on the other hand as you showed above, just being off one Lexi value changed all 5 values of the numbers drawn!

I'll keep plugging away with the steps and try to come up with several 6 number Lexi sets.  Like you mentioned, you can see a run of a numbers and you would expect the same number the next draw....but everything is random.

I'll wait until I have the steps down before trying to learn and tweak the filters.

Having a solid understanding of the program and a few 3 of 5 hits under my belt would exciting for times when PA's Treasure Hunt (5/30) game is at \$100,000 like it is right now.

I wanted to show how important the first 4 lexies are and that most attention should be given them.

I could have showed plenty of examples where all six lexie digits can be missed and still produce a

4of5 match.  I also like to open the "One-Off" option by pressing (O) on the keyboard after updating

to see how close I came to hitting a 4of5.  Many times I get within a digit or two of hitting a second

level prize regardless of how well my steps setup went.

T-lex is a great program IMHO but it takes time to learn how the data flows.  Mastering the steps does

not mean that you can hit them at will, but rather that we understand the concept.  Return to the steps

after the drawing and look for cues that would have led you to the correct choice will develop your skills.

I often make my choices from the overall data without highlighting any values in the bias search.

I was off on all lexie digits except first zero and got 3 out of 5 on mega millions on last tuesday.

played single line with megaplier this time and got \$25 for it.
