Substitution Works - TX 5/37

For what it's worth!
I realize that a substitution workout and $5 might get you a cup of coffee at the nearest Starbucks, but hard work has its rewards - small as they may be in Texas!

Here is a recent winning ticket for Texas Cash 5/37. (Aug 1)

AABCC 1.5.10.25.29 (2/5-$2)
AACDD 5.7.29.31.35 (3/5-$11
ABBCD 1.14.16.20.31
ABCCD 7.16.230.25.27
BBCDD 10.14.20.31.35 (2/5 $2)
Total win - $15

Winning numbers - 3.25.29.31.35

I had another small win on Aug 5 - 1 3/5 and 1 2/5 for $9 - using 5 different sets.


Not much to brag about, for sure, but, as many know the Texas pick 5 game is the worst in the world where prizes are concerned.
The most recent jackpot prize is $16.203. The one before that was $16.849.

A lot of work for small prizes, but the current Texas lottery game line-up for system players
favor the state.
All or Nothing and upcoming Triple Chance are Keno-type games.
The predator games, Mega Millions and Powerball, are too difficult for paper and pen workouts.
That leaves the Daily games, Cash 5, Two-Step (4/35+1/35) and Lotto 6/54.

For those who might not know, Substitution is a strategy where a lottery game is divided
into 3 major pieces, commonly known as Main A, Main B and Main C.
Following precise rules of procedure, game history is used to generate a variety of tracking charts having TREND lines that show where a game has been and clues about where it might headed.

A User analyzes the trend lines and chooses those integers the data and the clues suggests have the best chance of being in the next winning combination.
It is not a prediction workout.

How are the integers chosen??

The workouts I use give me 3 major avenues for choosing integers.
I don't always make the best choices but I win often enough to make all the work
worthwhile.

True, it's guesswork that requires more than a little time keeping the tracking charts
up-to-date.
In fact, I'm an expert and it takes about an hour to update the charts and choose integers for the next drawing.
But, I know from a long life that hard work and attention to detail is often more superior
to mathematical models said to have a lot of promise but rarely produce winning
combinations.

Personally, I switched to Substitution because I never met a statistical model that
was anything more than a "nice to know but so what" accumulation of data
having little meaning in the integer selection process.

Although I'm sure I'll be talking to myself, I thought I would none-the-less provide some
general information on how Substitution applies to a Pick 5 game.

The initial task is converting winning combinations into Alpha Signatures according
a standard method:

A = integers 1 to 9
B = integers 10 to 19
C = integers 20 to 29
D = integers 30 to 39 (37 in Tx)

Thus, the Alpha Signature for winning combination 3.25.29.31.35 is ACCDD.

I used the following Audit to choose the 5 Alpha Signatures for Aug. 1

First 3
ABB - 56
AAB - 45
ABC - 40
AAA - 22
BBC - 22
AAC - 20
ACC - 18
BBB - 18
BCC - 16

Last 3
CCD - 59
BCD - 49
CDD - 43
BBC - 26
BCC - 22
BBD - 18
DDD -17
CCC - 16
BDD - 14

P1P2
AB - 98
BB - 40
AA - 28
BC - 20
AC - 19

P4P5
DD - 63
CD - 62
CC - 47
BC - 32
BD -21

Note: Based on inventory totals 10 or more, as of Aug. 01

My analysis of the totals produced the following 5 Alpha Signatures that I'll use
for the immediate future when I play.
TX C5 is a daily game, but, given limited resources, I don't play often, and only after
updating the charts as of the last drawing. Again, a lot of work with small rewards.

AABCC
ABBCD
ABCCD
BBCDD
AACDD

The question now is how are the integers chosen.

I'm not going into details but the default for the workout is 12 integers, or 3 integers
from each Decade. There are 4 Decades times 3 equals 12.
The selection process per Decade is exactly the same as it is for pick 3.

See Substitution Works - Pick 3 in the Systems Forum.

The 12 integers can be wheeled to provide as many sets as a User wants to play, or, they can be evenly divided among the 5 Alpha Signatures.

A User could, of course, use a different strategy when it comes to choosing integers. However,
I've been doing this for awhile and I have yet to identify a method other than choosing 3 from each Decade.
Each Decade is divided into 3 sections - Mains A, B, and C.


So, why am I doing this, you might be wondering.

I'm hoping that one day a young person with programming skills will come along
and recognize the benefits of substitution.
That person, of course, will be willing to learn the system and do the tedious logging required.
Subsequently, this person will use the knowledge gained to write some
short, to-the-point programs that will reduce the workload.
I'm not talking about some full-fledged computer system. I don't think such a program is possible.
I know that some of the tracking charts can be automated while maintaining the trend lines containing the clues that bring it all together in a form that facilitates the guesswork.

But, it will all come down to the individual person using whatever brain power he/she possesses to make winning choices.

Thanks for your interest.

    Well bobby, that was interesting. This morning I was thinking about charting decades and their positions for the Lotto game. It's getting high enough that it's worth playing more $ on it now.

    Frankly, I wouldn't spend any time on Cash 5. It really annoys me that they will bring out this Triple Chance game with the rational that we need a game that will pay $100,000. They have a game that could and would pay that kind of money if they would revamp it. 

    Oh well, thanks for posting.

      Hi!
      I'm playing catch-up with Lotto.
      I spent a lot of time tracking the jackpot games.
      All my charts went to the landfill. Too many possibilities.
      I've hit 3/6 several times recently, but, my trend lines don't have much meat.
      I hope to do better before someone wins the jackpot with a QP.
      I have a set of Alpha Signatures but I'm choosing 17 integers for a free wheel that gives me 8 sets to play ($16 with Extra), which is the
      most I can afford.
      Two-Step proving to be difficult. Not many useful clues. Just takes time. Only 8 integers per week!
      Good luck with your plays!

        Bobby,

        Are there any substantial reoeating patterns that you see using this method?  I have something like this set up in excel and color coded but could never find a pattern worth phoning home 

         

        thanks

        Stay In The Vortex, you'll be happy you did ..... Random? Seriously? You want me to believe that?

          If you are referring to the Alpha Signatures, the answer is Yes.
          My goal is to choose the partial signatures having the highest total and then  mix and match to get as many as possible into play.
          The difference in audit totals don't change much, so, once you make your choices you just ride them until there is a reason to change.
          If you play Tx C5, the five signatures I mentioned could help you win, provided you choose the correct integers.
          If you are referring to integer patterns, the answer is No because the workout targets individual integers.
          This is explained in the Pick 3 posts.
          In C5, I always need to choose 3 integers from each Decade, and there are specific procedures that allow me to choose wisely.
          I have charts that track the 9 integers in Main A, but I don't display them as triples per se.
          To do so would produce a statistical chart having no purpose, as many of the mathematical models are.
          Hope I have answered your question??
          Thanks for your interest.

            Thanks Bobby,  I playing C5 every now and then. Play mostly Two Step, Lotto, Mega and PB. I always like to see how others go about getting their numbers and learning. It helps energize the brain cells lol. Good luck and would like to see some more examples and how you arrive to your decisions   Perhaps I'll see something that could help you with the C5

              Good post bobby.

              Gotta lot of stuff here for Cash5. Payout has been declining for years. If four winners split 16000, each winner would only get about $3000 after taxes.

              The good thing about Cash5 is there is only one group of numbers. I toyed with it, used an alpha system too, never got into it.

              The same idea could be applied to the Lotto Texas and be more profitable.

              Probably have alpha charts or programs to make them in one computer or the other. Almost never toss any program. 

              Glad to see you're winning and have a system that works!

              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!"
