Topic: Each Lotto Pick 6 line subset has an equal chance Posted: July 28 2012 at 6:32pm 

Each Lotto Pick 6 line subset has an equal chance of success Without a doubt the home for Lotto idiots is http://LotteryPost.com catering for people who consult booklets for dream numbers etc. A recent post by one who goes under the pseudonym "Developer" caught my attention where he maintains different integers used in one lne produce different 3combination intersects with all the 6combination possibilities in a 6/49 Lotto game see http://www.lotterypost.com/ For numerical order line 01 12 13 38 39 49, 1 is always in position 1 and 12 and 13 will be next to each other as in XXX000 (7,140), X0XX00 (6,300), X00XX00 (1,620) and X000XX (120) totalling 15,180. "Developer" couldn't see beyond 7,140 but still lauded about how "brilliant" he is. The amazing thing is with all their so thought expertise those that responded in the thread couldn't see the error! After little hesitation but still mindful of all the facts "Developer" from LotteryPost wins the LOTTO IDIOT PRIZE FOR 2012. Let's consider the reasons for him winning this award. He knows about the number of combinations of 6 integers in a 6/49 Lotto game (13,983,816) and the number of combinations of 3 integers in one Pick 6 line (20) and multiplying the two together came up with 279,676,320 combinations of three integers including duplicates. Presumably with his "I do like maths and that's why I do this." he knows about the 18,424 distinct combinations of three integers for a 6/49 Lotto game which when divided into 279,676,320 gives 15,180, the occurrence for each of the 18,424 combinations of 3 integers ie 49c6 x 6c3 / 49c3 = 15,180. Given all that, for a lexicographic enumeration of all the combinations of 6 integers he states for line 01 12 13 38 39 40, "01 12 13 Appears 7,140 times in position XXXOOO = 47.04% of a possible 15,180 positions available". As I previously pointed out 01 12 13 also appears 6,300 times for X0XX00, 1,620 times for X00XX0 and 120 times for X000XX giving the expected total of 15,180. "Developer" is from the UK and has been a member of LotteryPost since December 17, 2004 so he is no newbie. Very worrying for intending air flight passengers is his bragging, "In my day job I code electrical test software for some of the world's largest aerospace manufacturers, ..." According to "Developer", "It's a massive achievement for me creating an algorithm that can do that, and so fast. I have been working on it for many months. Thought I would share with a community that could appreciate it, my wife just goes, "That's nice dear"" Purely for the intellectual exercise as the premise for "Developers Pick 6 Lotto System" is entirely wrong I modified a bit of old code and came up with the 20 lines and 20 columns output for any of the Pick 6 lines after getting up and before breakfast which is given below. In VBA it takes about 1 minute to run and this can be improved on. The "Gurus" at LotteryPost that participated in the thread couldn't see the blatant contradiction and woeful error and some actually confirmed his output. This undoubtedly is a sad outcome from webmaster Todd Northrup's practice of kicking out of his forum those that are too questioning and rational for his taste. Developer also wrote, "I have now tweaked the algorithm to predict the other missing numbers based on the 3 ball probability as explained above, comparing these predictions with past draw data I can see the hit rate is the best I have ever seen to date period...... The challenge still remains to pick the first 3 correct balls in their final 3 positions in the draw." and may all his insane predictions come true! Actually, I am interested to see how long it takes before a subscriber to LotteryPost who also visits here from time to time wins kudos by posting a correction (LotteryPost rules prohibit the mention of my name) and whether Todd Northrup is so embarrassed that he deletes the whole thread. Obviously "Developers" involvement with the crackpots of http://LotteryPost.com has led him down the occultist path to a pit of putrescent ridiculousness.

Lotto Draws have no relationship to one another; the integers serve just as identifiers. Any prediction calculation on one history of draws for a same type game is just as irrelevant as another.
