Please post any general observations about the Powerball...

Not looking for anyone to divulge their "secrets", but there must be something we can chip in here to help eachother out...

Observation... If you separate the data into Wednesday and Saturday, the Wednesday drawings aren't as erratic as the Saturday drawings. (Sorted order)

Observation... There are more numbers that repeat from wednesday to wednesday than from saturday to saturday. (Sorted order)

Please chip in (not looking for actual picks, just trying to get a collection of basic guidelines)... perhaps something similar can be done for Mega Millions...

Playing more than one ticket per game is betting against yourself.

    Observation... The 20 and the 35 tend to alternate when chosen as the Powerball... right now the 35 is next up. This has it's exceptions, but seems to hold true more often than not

    Observation... the 20 as powerball tends to show up once between jackpot wins.

      guess... if the "mirror image" trend continues, the PB should be 15 for tonight (Sat. 8/30/03)

        Just buy a quick pick.

        Smart lottery winners form trust to claim their winnings.  They send an attorney to the lottery headquarters to claim the prize in trust, so that ONLY the name of the trust is revealed.  And they tell NO ONE, especially relatives.

        If you ever win a lottery and you are single, the only person you should ever marry is someone who was truly in love with you BEFORE you won the jackpot!

            With only 3,342,046 winning combinations of 120,526,770 possible combinations, it pretty easy to pick some losers.  Better luck next time.

              Observation only:

              I had mentioned in an earlier post about the Mega Ball or Power Ball number always "hit's" with a white ball or next to a previous white ball the game before 65 to 70 % of the time. This information might be helpful in picking your MB or PB number's in the future.

                Okay, now I believe you can predict lottery numbers

                  The PowerBall changed its format on 10/09/02.  I avoid numbers that match 3  or match 2 more than 5 times with any numbers drawn since that date.  When the jackpot gets over $200M, I'll play 42 lines using all 42 bonus balls, this works better for a pool of players who are playing a large group of numbers.

                    In the Powerball, Since 10/9/02, it happened about 23% of the time... a total of 24 occurrences in 95 draws (22 drawings, some overlap occurs when a pair of sequential numbers is involved)...

                    when the match is exact, it favors (favors is no guarantee, just "trend spotting") the 2nd white ball of the previous drawing (sorted order)

                    when it is one LESS than a corresponding white ball from a previous drawing, it favors the First white ball  (sorted order)(must be 2 or higher)

                    when it is one GREATER than the previous white ball, it tends to favor the 5th white ball (sorted order) (don't work for a 5th white ball of 42 or higher)

                     

                    Observation ... 

                    in 32% of the drawings (31 of 95), the powerball is either...

                     lower than the lowest white ball of that drawing (20 times) or...

                     higher than the highest white ball of that drawing (11 times)
