Yesterday I played 20 lines for Ohio's Classic Lotto.  I checked my data file and made sure it was up to date with all the previous drawing results and that they were in order before picking any lines to play. 

I calculated the parameters and limits that cover 95% of those drawings which I used in a RNG to create a profile for the lines it picks.  The winning numbers were 4 6 19 23 36 37 and I matched two three times.

The winning numbers fitted the RNG profile perfectly which normally would net me a match three or better so I set about trying to figure out what might I had changed to have gotten a better results and could find nothing.

Finally when I checked to see how the winning combination had done in previous drawings I discovered it had matched five on 03/26/2008 and the RNG rejects any combination that has matched more than four in previous drawings.

      Depending on the number of games in history it's almost certain to happen at some point.  I removed all

      such filters from my stuff years ago.

      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

        You know, in a pick 5 game you can have 4 numbers repeating. Why don't you play repetitions for pick 5? Eventually we get a full repeat like in some pick 6 lottos. You could filter like not more than 5 repeating numbers and your RNG will do correctly for pick 5.

          RJ had you not used that filter, how many comb would you have had? you most likely would have used a different filter to get to your play budget.

           The point is any filter will sometimes remove the winning comb.  If the filter only removes 1 digit from the matrix sooner or later it will fail you.

           we can only be as selective as our resources allow and make as informed choices as possible, hope for a lot of luck,  then live with the results.

            Classic Lotto is a 6/49 game so its matrix has 13,983,816 possible combinations.  CL had 1391 drawings each which had 15 combinations of fives combined with the other 44 numbers produced 918,060 combinations I was filtering out or 6.5% of the possible combinations. Since CL 1391 drawings had only match five of previous drawings 18 times or 1.3% of the time, perhaps I was filtering out too many combinations.

            There is always another game to be played.  Tonight I will be trying my luck at Ohio's newest game "Lucky for Life", it' s a 5/48 +1/18 with better odds and pay outs for its smaller prizes.  I've been playing it since it came on line a couple of weeks ago and have done better with  it even with its $2 tickets.  I will on play ten lines to stay in budget.

                I'm waiting until I win a jackpot to start another thread "The Rewards of using the RJOh system".  I came close in 2013 when posting 10 predictions for the same game and matched 5of6 for $1500. Wink

                  Sometimes it's extremely difficult if not practically impossible to get people to disregard the smoke and mirrors.  Instead, they seem to enjoy the ride down the proverbial Garden Path....... helpless to extricate themselves from being totally deceived by known forces in their midst who would argue that they have come here for the sole purpose of helping people.......str8ca$hhomie
