I was wondering if anybody tracks number groups as a major tool to select numbers. For example, if no numbers in the 40-49 range have come in during the last 4-9 drawings, do you play those numbers heavily-- just curious here about what you do...

To Greg,

While I don't look at groups of numbers, I do look at combinations of numbers.  For example in Magamillions, very few combinations of threes have repeated since the game started so I don't play any combinations of threes that have hit before.  In Ohio649P very few combinations of threes repeat from the last 25 drawings, so I play combinations which has not matched three in the last 25 drawings.  The larger the selections of numbers the least likely the small combinations are going to repeat in a small amount of drawings.  You bring up an interesting point and I will be checking my files to see if that might be something to observe when picking my numbers.

I use different tracking methods for megamillions one of which is groups of numbers.  I break my numbers down into groups of 5 and have found that 45-49 as well as 40-44 have the highest hit percentage overall, where as 35-39 are dragging dead last in the % categorey.  I usually just stay away from those low percentage numbers because they have not come up in any type of regularity even when they haven't hit in quite a while.  even 50 to 52 as a group has a higher hit % than 35-39,  mostly because 51 has hit 14 times.  I also track numbers by column hits as well as total number of hits regardless of which column.  if i'm not mistaken group numbers 5-10 have the highest megaball hits also.

In a 49-number game, the only denominator is 7 (other than 1).

7 may be the lowest denominator of 49, but not the only one.  49 divided by 49 equals one(also a whole number).
