I am asking can anyone write a program for a small circle wheel?  or does any know of any lottery software that wheels in circles..??

If you know your number is going to hit, have patience and then KILL IT!

You never know when you will get another hit.

    LittleOldLady,

    Define what you mean by "wheels in circles."  If you mean that you can use different starting points in the wheel, thus wrapping around back to the top, then mine does that.

      okay, what I mean is that for instance if I have 12345, the wheel will make 1234  5,  2345  1, 3451  2, 4512  3, 5123  4...like that.  That way each number gets to be the PB.

        something where you specify the numbers (and number of numbers) to wheel and it does the rest?

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

          Forget including p/b or b/b w 5/6 digit draws it won't work w/odds 15 to 130 million you would be luckey to just hit the p/b or bb!  In Ohio, the kicker six numbers  that are drawn and played as they are drawn not reversed to sequencial order is 1,000,000 to 1!

          Play the b/b or p/b seperate!

          It's that simple!

                Same to you...butt out.  I left one thread because I couldn't get an answer to my question and now all of a sudden when I can get some info..then everyone wants to put their 2 cents in..this is not for you or Mr. Steele..if you can't help, leave it alone.

                  Little Old Lady,

                  Your example made it look like you want all combinations of the numbers....  This is a binomial distribution, and many programs (including Microsoft Excel) can do that.  The problem with that, is that it gets quite expensive rather quickly.  In your example with 5 numbers, playing 5 numbers would be $1, playing 6 numbers would be $6, playing 7 numbers would be $21, playing 8 numbers $56, 9 = $126.  Dimitrov, an Austrian mathematician, came up with the idea of the Wheel in which you play the most likely combinations.

                  Am I answering your question?

                    No..I was just using that as an example..I have more sense than that..I was just giving a short example of what I was referring to...I am not looking for something to give all of the possible combos..just something that will wheel 9 numbers...

                    If you know your number is going to hit, have patience and then KILL IT!

                      let's use the following as an example...

                      you want to choose 9 numbers...

                      1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9

                      you want as output

                      12345 PB 6

                      23456 PB 7

                      34567 PB 8

                      45678 PB 9

                      56789 PB 1

                      etc...

                      right?

                      I have a busy weekend... but next week I can work on that for you... are you interested in a stand-alone Visual Basic application or are you more comfortable with excel? I prefer to work in VB when it comes to variables to avoid the processor overhead that the office apps like excel cause, but I could use a break from all the crazy theories to do something simple for a change :-)
