Is there one?

I guess I will keep watching over the other members in the other forum to see what numbers to come out.

I like your approach and your system. Can you explain it?

SergeM,

You're killing me.

Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

Absolutely!  All you need to do is put the 5 numbers plus the BB on a ticket and have them draw those numbers.  I'm not exactly sure how to write that formula out but I'm sure someone here can help.  Something like 75-74=n x 5 and 15-1=n

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

You could write out a formula for each drawing and if one formula comes up more than once, use it on future drawings.

Write a formula. -> How?

package thepackage;

import thepackage.Formula;

public class RJOh{

Formula formula = new Formula(Formula.MEGAMILLIONS);

/**
* Does the winning.
*/

public static void win(){
if(formula.succesful() && formula.getScores() > 1) formula.use();}

}

Something like that?

No, you need more variables like a+b+c+d+e+BB=winner.  Now just define a,b,c,d,e to get winner.

**Note - you may have to play all 15 BB to win a jackpot.

Good Luck

We have to add methods to the class Formula.

public void calculate(Integer[] drawing){

// define a,b,c,d,e to get winner.

int a,b,c,d,e, summa;

// process begin.

}

Ok, what's the process? sum( a to e )?

Object[] drawing might do better, but I need to cast.

Should the method return a value? What type?

1+11 does indeed =14 if you take 4-1, good job and most informative

now, 2+2 does indeed = 5 if you use the same 4+1  WTG Jade
