I'm a big fan of followers in the p-3 game, and enjoy comparing my picks to Lucky's follower numbers. Is there any way to have a history of his predictions so I can do a back test of the efficacy of the system?

Thank you Todd for a great site.

    One thing that I don't like about the Lucky Daily Tracker and Lucky Follower systems is that there is No way to back test the accuracy of these systems.  You can only use these 2 systems by foresight [forward - b/c that is the way the DATE registers - you cannot go backward by DATE in order to Back test], unless you start on Monday and keep track of the results that the systems produce for the entire week, and then check back over that week for accuracy.

      Lucky has been posting predictions from his systems here on Lottery Post for 16 years.  He has nothing to prove, and backtesting in general is fairly meaningless.  Anyone can create a system that backtests great, then provides no value for the future.

      Lucky was beyond generous to donate his systems to Lottery Post, especially given his tremendous insight into lottery systems over the years, as well as his incredible success.  I have personally hit many times using Lucky's systems.

      Nevertheless, if you do want to test Lucky's systems over time, there is nothing preventing you from doing so.  Simply record the predictions every day and compare to actuals.  The systems have been available on Lottery Post for around 10 years, so anyone wanting to do this would have 10 YEARS of testing data.  However, I'm not going to waste time programming something like that, because as I mentioned, backtesting is fairly meaningless.

        I disagree that back testing is meaningless, and this is not an issue about Lucky having anything to prove.  We are obviously all grateful to Lucky for sharing his systems for so many years.  I did not ask you to waste time programming anything [that was Amber123].  I was simply commenting about the nature of how both systems function, and I have already figured out that you have to start at the beginning of the week and keep track of the results yourself throughout the week, as the only way to backtest.

          Thank you for responding.

          Back testing may seem worthless to you, but some may find it useful. It wouldn't be the first time one person disagreed with another in the forums. Just look at the system's forum, 1,001 ways to win the p-3, with five thousand differing opinions.

          Maybe make it available ONLY to Premium members. Wink

          Whatever you decide, it will never affect my love for this site in any way.
