Just a brief update on my "research" into the lottery game Powerball, and if there is a way to improve the odds even a little bit. I wrote: "I created a chart of 46 weeks, that has the most recent results, going back a couple of months and then at random though January 2014 a game or two each month." and "Using my system, I've shown that I'd have won something in most games and nothing only 13 times out of the 46..."
At that time my chart left off at 2/18/15, since then three more games have come and gone, and using my "system," if you can call it that, I've drawn two numbers each game. This, while not generating a winner, tells me I may be on the right track. I'm actually happy with these results because two numbers could as easily be three, four, five, or a jackpot. Right now I'm still in the experimental stage playing on paper only, and still looking for a number generator or program that'll allow inputting specific numbers that can be used to generate my entries, but so far doing it manually while harder is showing results. I'll post an update as I go on.
