I just noticed that this is a pick 7 game and not a pick 10 game.
So this is pick 7 / 10 / 55.

Neat work, but not useful because my choices are based almost entirely on TRENDS, not mathematics.
When I begin constructing plays, the Decade columns will be a source of information that might aid the guesswork.
As of today, there have been 12 drawings.
When the individual columns are added, Decades C, D, E have the higher totals.
What this means over the long haul is uncertain.
It will probably be a more of a visual tool where conclusions can be made just by viewing the trends.
For example, I think I would limit my Decade A choices to '1' per signature.
It's just too early in the game, but my "brain cells" are being educated with each drawing.
Actually, my game choices will be based almost solely on the Alpha signatures.
Again, it's early but ABBC in positions 1 thru 4 could be a favorite.
"Connector", "CC", in P5 and P6 is a favorite, as is 'DEEF" in the Last 4 positions.
Making good choices will depend on other Trend factors, which will become fairly obvious in future.
Choosing Integers, of course, is another matter.
I have designed a series of Tracking charts which will provide the clues that will help me identify the integers
having best chance of being in the next drawing.
Again, its Trends, Trends, Trends.
I'll evaluate all the Trend lines and let my brain guide my decisions.
Perhaps those folks who believe there is a mathematical solution to lottery play will find your ideas useful.
Regarding 'different chunks'.
In the Trend analysis business, the Decade breakdown I listed is the easier method.

No, not a Pick 7 game.
It's pick 10.
To win the \$100,000 jackpot, you have to correctly match 7 of the 10 integers drawn.
You have to choose 10 integers in order to get a ticket.
You just include your 7 best choices in each play.

You can kind of drag probability and trends out of the drawings, but you do not have the average reference point without probability. I won't post all cases for your chunks alias decades. Trends come, trends go and there is the no trend. It all comes more or less according to a random model.

Defining a trend that stays for a while is a key, if the amount of numbers is very limited and those could be used as key numbers, to cut the costs.

What kind of trends are you looking for? Or, how do you define trend?

A complete answer to your question will require more time and energy than I have to give for this Topic.
But, I'll give a short answer.
Background.
I have a paper and pencil workout I call Substitution Lottery Workout w/Gap Strategy.
It's a labor intensive situation involving numerous tracking charts that have to be kept
current.
This workout can be used for any lottery game having clearly defined Decades.
For this explanation on how I use Trends to guide my integer choices, I'm using my
Pick 3 workout.
I've decided to base my next play on Alpha Signature ABC.
This means I need to get 1 integer from Decade A, 1 integer from Decade B and 1 integer from Decade C, which, by the way, includes R which is always 0 (zero).
I use Gap strategy.
In this instance, my worksheets tell me that for Decade B, I need to use Gap string 1, which, by the way is the Default.
The Decade B Hotsheet, Gap 1 column ends with '3'. This tells me that I must go to Follower-Follower Page 3, Column 3, which ends with '11',
This is where I choose one Gap number, `1,2,or 3 by analyzing Column 11.
Here are the choices, listed here as a horizontal trend line to save space.
11: 32321111112331331312
Question: What is the next G digit??
There are several ways to analyze the data:
Verbally - Last digit is 2 - 2.3.2.1.2.3.2.? (dont talk too loud, lol)
2 is followed by 3, 1,3, (could be next is 1)
Use Sum3 (this generates a separate line) by adding consecutive digits, 3 at a time.
8764553346877787756.....next is 2+1+?
Choices +1(4), +2(5), +3(6).
I choose +2(5)
The next digit is "2", which, according to other workout features means the Next Decade B digit should be "4"
I say 'should' because my choice is based on intuition and other factors.
I'm not always Right, but, I'm making correct choices often enough to make it worthwhile.
Now - you no doubt have questions, which, unfortunately, I won't answer.
You either think substitution is good strategy or you don't.
if you do, I've posted enough stuff over the past 5 years to help you set up your own
workout.
I doubt you will do that because most lottery players travel the easy routes, trying to
win by pushing a few keys on a computer, or, whatever.

My statement that a player has to choose 10 integers is INCORRECT.
Players making personal picks must choose the 7 integers they believe will be in the
next 10-integer winning combination.

I guess that makes it a  Pick 7 game, as Serge reported.

Bobby,

This is one of the worst games, if not the worst, I've seen. Texas is selling it on the idea of CHANCEs instead of odds. We all know that having three chances does not change the ODDS of having a winning combination. In this case the ODDS are 1:202927725. The two additional QPs (CHANCES) do not reduce those odds.

You still have to have 7 of 55 in any one line no matter how many CHANCES or how many numbers they draw. Let's see now.....

I can pay \$2 to play a 7 of 55 for \$100,000 (the cap on the payout is 1 million btw) or pay \$1 and play 6 of 54 for millions or play a \$1 and play Mega Million for more millions.

I can pay \$1 and play 2Step (starting jackpot \$200,000) with much better odds. All or Nothing pays \$250,000 and its a \$2 game.

This game needs to produce a lot of winners to survive. But producing a lot winners will mean its losing money. It's just a BAD game.

Be that as it may, here's the top alpha patterns. Once you compare the patterns to the results you'll see this is going to be a low ball game.

All 100 top patterns start with A or B. Pattern 107 is CCDDEEF. The next starting C pattern (CCCDDEF) is at 200 with 324000 combinations.

The Even/Odd breakdown is about what you would expect with Odds producing better.

It appears the best plays two low pairs and a triple, or three pairs and single, or two triples and a single.

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!"

your probably correct. I've not dove in nor cracked the surface of this one. IMHO the Two Step has the payout lol Bonus Ball is \$5 vs others \$1.  I normally play 20 lines per any game   When I do well I'm hitting 3 plus the BB on many lines which adds up to a decent amount of \$\$\$

i will dabble with the Game of chance but first I've git to finish the projects I'm on

Larry,

Not a lot to see at this point.

Of the 791 total alpha patterns, 462 start with "A," (58.4%). The last AFFFFFF set falls around 149,403,045.

210 alpha patterns start with "B," 26.5%. The last BFFFFFF set falls around 194 million.

Needless to say 84% of the matrix contains "A" and/or "B" numbers. Based on the 95 draws thus far (82 "A" + 11 "B") 93 of the total 95 draws have a low number of "A" or "B" or multiple low numbers in those ranges.

That's not going to change (much) over the long haul. High number sets will be few and far between.

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!"

There we go again with odds and predictions against a weak payout.

You'll have to explain the terms, column 11 of what?

Nice to read yours, but I think that I am far ahead of you. I sometimes just enjoy the lecture. I am not publishing, don't ask for it, I won't! I'll limit my questions from here on, people read this, lol.

After last night's drawing I went back and got all pretest and live draws together and ran some ideas. We got lemons so we might as well try to make lemonade, right?

76 patterns have hit so far. Here's the breakdown. In short 103 of 120 start with an A number. 15 start with a B number. (I'm not crazy. I'm using only the first 7 numbers since 7 is all you get to choose.)

I am a bit surprised that 6 Even and 4 Odds come out more than any other E/O pattern, but for that I used all ten numbers to get some idea of how the even and odds are falling. I may go back and see what position the evens and odds are falling later, I don't see that as a priority for the time being.

 AAAAABB 1 AAAAABC 1 AAAABBC 1 AAAABBD 1 AAAABCC 1 AAAABCD 1 AAAABDE 1 AAAACCD 1 AAABBBB 1 AAABBBD 1 AAABBCC 2 AAABBCD 1 AAABCCC 2 AAABCCD 1 AAABEEE 1 AAACCDE 2 AABBBCC 2 AABBBCD 2 AABBBCE 1 AABBCCC 2 AABBCCD 4 AABBCDD 1 AABBCDE 1 AABBDDE 1 AABCCCC 1 AABCCCD 5 AABCCDD 3 AABCCDE 3 AABCDDD 1 AABCDDE 2 AABDDDD 1 AACCCDD 1 AACCCDE 1 AACCDEE 1 AACDEEE 1 ABBBBBC 1 ABBBBCC 2 ABBBBCD 2 ABBBBDD 1 ABBBCCC 3 ABBBCCD 2 ABBBCDD 4 ABBCCCC 1 ABBCCCD 7 ABBCCCE 1 ABBCCDD 4 ABBCCDE 2 ABBCCEE 1 ABBCDDE 2 ABBDDDD 1 ABCCCCC 1 ABCCCCD 1 ABCCCDD 3 ABCCCDE 1 ABCCDDD 2 ABCCDDE 1 ABCCEEE 1 ABCDDDD 1 ABCDDEE 1 ACCCDDD 2 ACCDDDD 1 ADDDEEE 1 BBBBBBD 1 BBBBCCC 1 BBBBCCD 1 BBBBCDD 1 BBBCCCC 1 BBBCCCD 1 BBBCCDD 1 BBCCCCC 1 BBCCCDD 2 BBCDDEE 3 BBCDEEE 1 BCCDDDD 1 CCCCDDD 1 CCCDDDD 1 EVEN/ODD TOTAL 10/0 = 0 9/1 = 0 8/2 = 6 7/3 = 17 6/4 = 31 5/5 = 26 4/6 = 19 3/7 = 13 2/8 = 7 1/9 = 1 0/10 = 0

If you said, in each one the first 6 numbers are all below 30, we'd be thinking the same. Look closer and you'll notice 25 sets have 7 numbers below 30. And closer still 6 have 8 numbers below 30.

Why is this important?

It shows we are not hurting ourselves by eliminating the top 25 numbers.

If we drop back to the fifth number, we find 92 sets contain 5 numbers below 30.

It would seem then playing 5, 6 or 7 numbers below 30 is an advantage in hitting the lowers prizes.

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!"
