My system has suggested that the next PowerBall winning combination will be from the 71,453,158 combinations within the following parameters:

position 1 =  4-23
position 2 =  5-33
position 3 =  7-42
position 4 =  12-54
position 5 =  20-57
bonus = 7-35

By reducing the number pool from 59 to 54 and the bonus pool from 35 to 29, the number of combinations to be considered are reduced from 175,223,510 to 71,453,158 or 40.77% of the regular pool.

While I will be using no more than 50 regular numbers and 10 bonus numbers in the 10 lines I'll play, they all will be within the suggested parameters.  If the system suggestion is right I will have doubled my chances of winning a prize, possible even the jackpot.

Good luck if you also plan on picking up a ticket or two also.

Winning numbers were 21 29 40 55 59 +17, only two numbers and the powerball were within the suggested parameters.  Of ten lines I matched 1+0 once.  After Saturday, it's a new matrix and time to start collecting new data.  It'll be a while before I'm ready to play PB again.

Why focus on the position at all?  Yes, we can calculate the likelihood of any number being in a position at any time.  We know the number 13 can be drawn 182,160 times in the 2nd position.  This considers if the balls are drawn in numerical order.  This method shows the number 1 and 59 can only be drawn in the first and last position, respectively.  Every number can be drawn in any order.  This is the chart for PB as reported and if balls are drawn in numerical order.

However, since numbers can be drawn in any order, I see the chart as this boring thing, therefore position is not a part of my calculations:

That chart would be correct if I used all 59 numbers with one power ball but my parameters were for 54 numbers which excluded 1 2 3 58 and 59 with 29 power balls

A correct chart using the parameters suggested would show 4 as the lowest number used 7,635,816 times and 57 as the highest number used 4,813,478 times.  You need to add a counter in your program that count only the numbers in combinations within the parameters.

Can you explain the system, or point me to earlier posts about this system so I can gain a better understanding of why these numbers are excluded?  Or, why are no mid-range numbers excluded?  What if 1-2-3-58-59-? comes up?  Thanks!

It's like walking into a 2.5 mile (4 km) square room and standing on ~71 million tiles simultaneously (one tile per play).  Trump can afford that.

I don't see Donald doing all the tickets by hand.

About three years ago Jadelottey post some charts tracking PB or MM numbers which showed their positions for all the previous drawings and I got an idea of how to predict the range of numbers in that position for the next drawing which I explained in my posts at the time of which there was little interest.

The posts are in the archives if you want to read them but the system basically boils down to which numbers have followed numbers in previous drawings and their range.  I actually use those numbers in the lines I play as you can see on the prediction board.  I have noticed that 3/4 of the times this method produce good results by reducing the odds of winning something by 50% or better and that is how I came up with those parameters.

The only data I see is what number was drawn on what date.  Given this info, in reported order, is the following what you mean?

How to read the chart:  The last occurrence of number 7 was 18 draws ago for the first reported position, 5 draws ago for the second reported position, and 128 draws ago for the third reported position.  The number 7 has not appeared in the 4th or 5th reported position.

That being said, the number 7 can be drawn in any position, so how can this help a calculation?

Designing a lottery system is like brain surgery where a strict procedure has to be followed, there's a lot of guess work and all kinds of directions that can be taken or even made up.  I just explained what I did and why, what you decide to do is up to you.

I look at the combination drawn for 09/26/15 and based on what happened in previous drawings when those numbers appeared in those positions, tried to prediction what would happen with numbers in those positions on 09/30/15.  In the case of power balls I picked numbers that had never followed 05 and 07 was one of them.

Excuse me, I meant to say "designing a lottery system isn't like brain surgery........"

I quite liked it the way you first phrased it:)
