Think you had a typo there gary. the last number was 49, not 50.

In the Texas lotto game, there are 6 decades in the game. Singles, teens, 20's, 30's, 40's, and 50's. Going back through each draw over the years, most of the draws have 4 decades that are in play. Wednesday night's draw had all 6 decades in play, which is extremely rare. Like RL, and gary are doing, I think we are all looking for ways to pick numbers, and also for ways to cut the odds. One thing I try to do, (except when I get lazy and buy a QP), is eliminate playing 50's, and one other decade.

You still have to pick the right numbers, and guess??? the right decades to play, but the end result eliminating a group of numbers eliminates millions of combinations.

Playing from a pool of 39 numbers instead of 54 means going from 25,827,165 combinations to 3,262,623 combinations.

Thanks everybody! It was a fun thing to do on the spur of the moment.

RCBUCKEYE is right. Made a mistake putting 50 in the winning set. It was 49.

At least I didn't count it as a hit. That would have been a stupid mistake.....lol

RC, Glad you mentioned the part of about decades too. That's a good place to start.

Haven't done any programming on Lotto Texas since 2011. Today I downloaded and updated the game files and and the pretest draws.

Maybe....just maybe.

      I see that line B had 7-ID's, 0-1-3-4-5-6-7-and and 5-BD's.  perfect for a pick-6 game.

      Hitting 3 numbers in there correct positions,  A+++.  4th number one digit off.

       

      keep it up.

      LOL! Thank you. Figured you would catch that. That's the fun of this. You see things others do not.

      I like that. Sometimes I wonder if one of us is not stealing brain power from the other.

        I think tracking/counting ID's is a key part of playing digits.  Even if a person picks numbers using

        some other methods it's a nice way to validate a set before playing it.  Around 80% of the matrix

        for a 5-39 will have 5 or 6 ID's and so will 80% of the drawings, no mystery there either.   I see TX

        lotto is a 5-54 so it will follow a different set of rules but there are rules. 

        RL

         

        P.S.  I prefer to call it brain sharing, we all think a little differently and I think everyone has something

        they can share that the rest of us have never seen.

        I will consider the opinion that my winnings are a product of chance if you are willing to consider

        they are not.  Many great discoveries come while searching for something else

              Meant to do this earlier RL. Forgot. Busy.

              Still working on parts of this, my apologies if its confusing. 

              Not sure what Win D used to get his original Long and Current counts, but this is my code.

              We'll use a variable FSum to designate the total of the front digits. 

              Hit counts the hits.

              Curr is the current count of how many draws it has been missing.

              Lng will be the longest it has ever been out.

              My front digit patterns show most hits between 3 and 9 so I'll be using that as an example.

              We need to set up two counters and a flag. To do this we need three lines.

               

              If FSum >2 and FSum < 9 then Curr= 0 else Curr = Curr + 1 'counts how many draws missing

              If FSum > 2 and FSum < 9 then Hit = Hit + 1 'counts the Hits

              If Lng < Curr then Lng = Curr 'sets Lng to the highest Curr count

               

              Using the same idea we can also get the most times a variable has hit in a row.

               

              If FSum > 2 and FSum < 9 then Str = Str + 1 else Str =0  'string count for back to back hits

              Strx = Str 'current number of hits back to back hit

              If Lngx < Strx then Lngx = Strx 'longest ever hit in a row.

               

              For the most part the first two lines of this section are not going to be useful for tracking things like numbers.  Numbers may hit one to three times in a String (back to back to back). The Str is going to reflect that. Most of the counts will be 0 with a few 1s which doesn't tell us much.

              Strx, the current number of hits in a row, will bethe same number as Str. Makes sense. If a number has currently hit 2 times in a row, then the current string is 2. Seems pretty useless for the most part. I leave it out.

              The Lngx line shows the longest whatever we are tracking has ever hit in a row. This is the only other stat I write to the file.

              Tried to color code this for easy reading, but had the devil of the time with font sizes and colors. Maybe it me, maybe it was th kitten trying to play with with my fingers while I was working. Maybe he had something important to say?

              So in these six lines we get the hits, the longest out, the current out, and the most hits in a row for whatever piece of data we're tracking.

              RL, Jade feel free to optimize/modify it.

                G

                Here's another tip that may help, primes.  In my 5-39 matrix there are 12 prime numbers,

                2-3-5-7-11-13-17-19-23-29-31-37 and 4 are prime digits 2-3-5-7.   In the last 1000 sm-cash

                games there has only been 135 games without at least one prime number.

                377 with 1 prime

                347 with 2 primes

                120 with 3 primes

                20   with 4 primes

                1     with 5 primes

                86% of games have at least one prime number.  prime digit 2 = 84%, prime 3 = 89%, prime 5 = 43%

                and prime 7 = 41%.  Since all prime numbers except 2 are odd this can also help narrow down the

                suspected numbers for the next drawing as we know from the matrix that around 67% of games will

                have 2 or 3 odd numbers and only 2 numbers 23-29 have a decade digit 2 and 2 numbers a decade

                3, 31 and 37.  The prime numbers that hit will most likely will be <= 19.  Cross reference the final set

                and then maybe make an adjustment remembering to keep all counts within the perspective ranges.

                  with but have a bunch of ideas to work on.  I am also going to work on some prime digit/number filters

                  just to see if I can make some connections.

                              Hi! I'm Baaaaaaack!

                              Took at look at prime numbers in the 2Step. The last 18 live draws has produced 31 prime numbers (1.72 per draw).

                              Overall that's that what we can expect to see....

                              1 to two prime numbers have hit in 1093 of the 1484 live draws. 1998 total have hit in the same 1484 live draws (1.38 per draw).
