Pairs, Triplets, Quadruplets etc
Does anyone have any thoughts on whether it is worth the effort to do analysis how many times a ball has been twice in a row, three times in a row etc.
Does anyone use this analysis a part of determining the next draws numbers.

I hope that helps?

You may recall Doug, I did a tutorial on designing an Excel spreadsheet to do my version of Markov chains ( follow on numbers) back in Jan 2015 for the 649 lotto as it was then. ( in the USA lotto forum). I believe you got involved and was going to convert it to Visual Basic? Not exactly the same as a number directly repeating, know, which was about one in twelve for 649 as I recall.

Hi Frank yes I got involved with you Markov Chains and thank you for all the hard work you put into it and sharing it with everyone. But what I am talking about here is if says the number 7 get regularly drawn say 2 draws in a row, then every so often gets drawn three times in a row. Is this a reliable filter to us to help reduce the number of balls to select from (12042017 02:56 PM)Frank Wrote: You may recall Doug, I did a tutorial on designing an Excel spreadsheet to do my version of Markov chains ( follow on numbers) back in Jan 2015 for the 649 lotto as it was then.

I have also applied the follows principle to Linewidths drawn, Odd / Even / Low and High Numbers Drawn and it is quite interesting how well it performs.

RE: Pairs, Triplets, Quadruplets etc
Doug,
I was wrong in my guess above for the 649, actually the probability of being drawn ONCE is not a twelfth but an eighth approximately. For twice in a row you have to square that figure, so its about one in 64 draws on average. I just looked at probabilities for the UK 659 and the actual results over 158 draws (with 59 balls). Probability of a named ball being drawn is 10% so probability of being drawn twice in a row is 1%, about 1 in 100. This is backed up by actual results where, in general there has only been one occasion over 158 draws where any ball has been drawn twice on the trot. With such enormous odds you could never predict when it would happen, events can be early, on time or 10 times overdue, so the next event can be 10 draws away or 1000 draws away. Its a non starter as a predictive tool, unfortunately. As for three in a row at once in a 1000 draws, you could wait 10 years for it to happen.

RE: Pairs, Triplets, Quadruplets etc
Thanks Frank I appreciate your efforts, I probably won't go any further with pairs, triplets etc.
