Powerball Making History Again!!?


Is Powerball going to make history again with it’s whopping $400 million dollar jackpot?  We will see in tonight’s lottery pull!  Get your powerball slips ready and pick your numbers at www.simplypowerball.com

Simplypowerball shows past winning number activity from the past ten games for Powerball, Lucky for Life and Mega Millions.  I have noticed that about 2-3 numbers for Powerball does repeat within the past ten games and will highlight the winners in the most recent game but, not include them in the group of past ten games (Otherwise that past game will always be highlighted).   This nifty piece of information is on the main page will get updated at least once per week if not, every time one of the three lotteries changes.

 Simplypowerball has other great tools to help lessen those daunting odds.  This is only if you like analyzing numbers and trends.  Each game has a statistics page that displays the following:

  • Stats page – Shows number games missed since it last hit (GMO).
  • Which numbers are considered LOW or HIGH for that game.
  • Which numbers are ODD or EVEN at a glance.
  • Average number of skips for the white ball number.  So if the Games out is close to Average Skips (A.Skips) then play it!
  • The last date the number hit.
  • Total White ball Hits
  • Total Bonus ball hits
  • Total hits per play day (days vary by game)
  • Total hits in the last 8,12 and 20 games

All column headers are sort-able if you need to view them in a desired order.   Alot of the statistics are only limited to the White ball (this is free, so the kitchen sink is not in there).

This is a great tool to help you play responsibly and not break the bank on an astronomical chance.  Lottery is still random and there is no magical algorithm to get all of those numbers on the same line but you can get smaller prizes and lots of them.

A Word on Quick Picks
Quick picks are available for each lottery game as well.  The picks are based on the rules of the game and displays statistics from the database for the picks before you play them.  This is a great way to see if the combination has a good balance of numbers (Low/High and Odd/Even numbers)  and the total white ball sum.  In addition, the results will display how many times that combination won and the money value based on current payout scales.

Lottery numbers are not so random after all !

I have purchased and used Gail Howard’s lottery system software and I agree with the testimonials that numbers DO form patterns with sufficient data.

Since I have been using her systems, I have been winning about $30 per game by playing 10 tickets at $1 per ticket. Then I just keep using my winnings to play again. I have read “Lottery Master Guide” by Gail Howard and I agree with many readers that there are many charts to understand and master. In addition, I do have her software which makes the process easier and since using her software I have won more than before. She has done great work in creating something that can help millions of people if they are to the challenge and a little fun too.

Although there are many methods and charts she uses in the ‘Lottery Master Guide” ; I have discovered there is another missing piece that could be essential to her software. For anyone who has used the software the “History View Filter” comes close in finding which numbers play most frequently on specific game days. This feature works great but you have to run two instances of the program using different filters to see the differences in the total hits in each of the numbers. It would be great if total hits by day was displayed on the “Quick Pick chart”. The other drawback is when restoring back to the original settings, the user must be careful to not erase any game history. The potential is there if you are looking for it.

The funny thing is… I was one of the biggest skeptics since I had written my own version using access VBA and found that Gail Howard was right on the money.

Gail Howard claims:

“That which is MOST POSSIBLE happens MOST OFTEN.
That which is LEAST POSSIBLE happens LEAST OFTEN.”

So I tested the theory and she is most accurate. I tested a group of numbers that I have played in the past (they were not winners) to playing a new set every game and found that the numbers I had played in the past against the past 10 games were not even close. The new formulated sets of numbers for 5 games ($5.00) where closer to the point of getting all 5 numbers (on different panels) with the bonus number but, they did result in some winnings as opposed to playing the same numbers over and over again. Those old numbers had “sleepers” in them. They were not checked to see if they were “cold” numbers. So I would have lost money using those numbers repeatedly.

If there are others using her systems, please post your findings and I will do the same.
