Delta is a Greek letter that is often shown as a triangle. I would like to know where you use Delta.

Delta is the difference between two numbers, but can also have other meanings in mathematics, depending of the mathematician.

There is a delta lottery system that uses the first number of a combination and then uses the difference between the following numbers to define the combination.  Never saw any value of using this gimmick, it's just confusing.  Personally I prefer using letters ato replace numbers in combinations which sometimes shows patterns that might be useful for picking combinations to play in future games.

I rarely use letters. This is one of the rare cases:

Has the Even/Odd sequence ever been useful for you?

Yes, several times. When I feel this 6 odd xor 6 even numbers coming, I play it. When it comes out, it is like 6/23 instead of 6/45, to explain the positive thinking that gives you a little kick. Of course this doesn't happen every week. If you pick the wrong side, you have no number correct.

Don't you use this? It would surprise me if you didn't. I am even more surprised that you are asking.

We are off topic here. There might be some 50/50 distribution in delta. In around half of all drawings you have at least one delta 1. I haven't read about a program or study on delta, but "low, medium and high" is close to it.

Has either ever happened more than 3% of the time for any lottery you play?

3% of what? I catch you on an error.

I saw the term Delta Numbers used as shorthand version of recording lotto numbers several years ago. It was use by players one unique combination that couldn't be done using E/O, H/L, etc. filters.

Stack that doesn't make any sense. Every number can be expressed as e/o or h/l.

Delta numbers is most often associated with the distance between the draws.

The draw 4 - 7 - 16 - 25 - 31 would have the delta number 4 - 3 - 9 - 9 - 6.

4  the first number (4).

7-4 for the second (3).

16-7 for the third (9).

25-16 for the fourth (9).

31-25 for the fifth (6).

The Delta System is part of a set of dvds from a lotto software seller.

They've been called gaps and spans here at LP.

My greatest accomplishment is teaching cats about Vienna Sausage. When I need a friend, all I need do is walk outside, pop open a can, and every little critter in the neighborhood drops by to say "Hi!"

Have more than 3% of the combinations drawn been all even or all odd?  Sorry if my question was unclear.

I am not checking, but by memory maybe one drawing had all even or all odd. They draw 7/45, but it is a pick 6.

"Stack that doesn't make any sense. Every number can be expressed as e/o or h/l."

With delta numbers only the first number is part of the combination, the rest are gaps between the rest of the numbers.  How do designate which numbers are even / odd or high / low by their gaps?

RJOH, I'm pleading ignorance in the first degree. Had to go back and reread Stack's post and realized he was talking the same thing just in different terms.

Seriously I'd get the e/o and h/l breakdown before doing the notation. Since you know the first number, you could add back to get the e/o and h/l breakdown. That's needless. Like a circle argument. I'd make the breakdown before getting the shorthand notation.

When I'm working with back digits, I allow concessions for total Individual Digits when 0 is considered a placeholder. Same is true for high/medium/low number patterns.

In any case, you make a good point. If you don't designate the e/o and h/l first, you're doing needless work to go back and do the addition to get it after.

My apologies Stack. We're on the same page using different terminology.

From reading your imprecise posts over and over, it appears ,you are so dumb that you should be pleading your ignorance in the remaining 32 degrees as well.
