The main goal of this help page is to present useful, albeit concise, help information regarding Ion Saliu's lotto and lottery software known as LotWon, SuperPower, and MDIEditor And Lotto WE. The reference is to the best, most powerful lotto, lottery, gambling, roulette, editing, scientific software based on the Fundamental Formula of Gambling (FFG).
My software site offers the best information on downloading software. As a matter of fact, at one point, MSN Downloads copied my download instructions as a service to their visitors. Read: MSN Download Help Inspired by Our Software Download Page. The information is much more comprehensive and helpful for the registered members of the software download feature.
Also, I want the visitors to start at the very top of my main Software Downloads page. They need read the downloading information and the copyright notes as well. There are links to the Software Downloads gateway in the footer of most pages, plus direct links to download specific software.
After unzipping the files, read the important file README.TXT. Double-click on it to read it in Windows. If you are at the command prompt type: TYPE README.TXT|MORE.
After reading README.TXT, the final step is installing the software.
To install MDIEditor And Lotto WE double-click SETUP.EXE.
To install SuperPower / LotWon type INSTALL.
If you encounter difficulties with the installation, there are two problems. First, the ZIP files you downloaded are corrupted. The corrupting occurred during the download process. The only solution is to try downloading again.
The other problem related to software installation is caused by your system. You are the only one who knows how your system is configured. My software is as safe as it can be — I've never heard of legitimate security issues caused by my software. Therefore, I can assure you it is safe to relax your PC settings when running my applications.
MDIEditor and Lotto WE runs only on PCs running Windows 95/98/NT/2000+/Vista/Win 7, 8, 10. It will not run under Windows 3.xx or DOS. It will not run on Mac computers, or any Unix/Linux platform.
My lotto software, lottery programs known as LotWon or SuperPower is best run at the command prompt of Windows. Read this comprehensive page dedicated to the command prompt: command processor operation. It is very easy — and it hel;ps you become a better computer user, even administrator!
Some bona fide users still encounter difficulties in using the applications. Indeed, my software is based on mathematics. Such a topic is not easy for everybody, as you can read on some of the pages of this site. The good news is that after a second reading of the tutorials, everything looks a lot clearer. I can truthfully state that more than 99.7% of the users of my lottery software do understand the fundamentals. The morale: Please read the tutorials one more time!
These newest packages have excellent menu facilities that also run in the 64-bit Windows XP, Vista, Windows 7, 8, 10. The menus are very easy to use alright. They are also comprehensive. The Bright / Ultimate integrated software has also a superior collection of functions named Super Utilities (main menu, function S).
MDIEditor And Lotto WE is not only a great-looking piece of software (piece of art, a user said), but has an excellent help facility, plus a comprehensive lottery tutorial.
You can have as many lottery data files as you want, from as many lotteries as you want. But, one file must hold the same game format, for the same lottery commission. Just name the files accordingly. For example, one Powerball data file can only hold results for a game that draws 5 regular numbers from 1 to 69 and a Power Ball from 1 to 26. But never mix in that file results from an older Powerball format (e.g. 5 from 53 and 1 from 42). One Mega Millions data file can only hold results for a game that draws 5 regular numbers (e.g. from 1 to 75) and a Mega Mall (e.g. from 1 to 15). Results for older, different formats have no place in the same data file. When the lottery game format changes, you must start a new lottery data file for that particular game. Read on.
Since some people wanted me to work with their particular data files, a few words are in order.
Not to worry: My lotto software makes it very easy to create and maintain lottery files. They are just plain text (ASCII) files. Nothing can be easier than typing or to copy-and-paste lottery numbers one line at a time! My lottery software disregards the dates of the drawings, since they have absolutely no correlation with the lottery numbers drawn.
The ASCII format is the universal data format that works with many types of applications, both at command prompt and under GUI Windows. It represents absolutely the easiest way to create data files. If other lottery programs work with ASCII data files, then my software can use their results files. If not, see if other programs can convert their lottery data files to ASCII (text) format. If not, there is nothing I can do about that. The Internet, however, makes it easy to create lottery drawings files in ASCII format.
You can search on the Internet for the keywords lottery drawings or lottery results. You can also search for a specific lottery commission site, such as New York lottery or CA lottery (for California, in this example). Usually, the abbreviation of a state is part of a lottery site, such as PAlottery.com (for Pennsylvania Lottery, as an example).
The lottery drawings are also available in newspapers and on television. Go to a site that posts lottery drawings. Most, if not all, lottery commissions post the results of their lottery drawings / past winning numbers. Here is how I do it in the case of Pennsylvania lottery. I logon to this address: www.palottery.com/lottery/palotto. (They change the links quite often, especially after I post them on my Web pages!)
I choose the lottery game for which I want the results. If I create a new data file, I select all the drawings that the site has to offer. Then I use the copy-and-paste features of the Windows clipboard. So, I copy the selection to the clipboard (Ctrl+C). Next, I open my own application MDI Editor and Lotto WE. I paste the data I saved to the clipboard (Ctrl+V). It looks like this:
Wednesday 10/13/1999 14, 17, 44, 45, 49, 55 payout information
Saturday 10/09/1999 15, 20, 34, 42, 53, 60 payout information
Wednesday 10/06/1999 13, 23, 25, 28, 42, 59 payout information
Saturday 10/02/1999 11, 20, 26, 27, 28, 56 payout information
Wednesday 09/29/1999 7, 18, 34, 38, 46, 59 payout information.
My software only uses the numbers (digits) of the lotto drawings, without the dates or any other text. Therefore, I need to edit the data above: Eliminate the text I do not need. I just select the text and press Delete.
Wednesday 10/13/1999 14, 17, 44, 45, 49, 55 payout information
The line becomes:
14, 17, 44, 45, 49, 55 payout information
I press "Delete" again and get the drawing-only line:
14, 17, 44, 45, 49, 55
This is the final appearance of the data file:
14, 17, 44, 45, 49, 55
15, 20, 34, 42, 53, 60
13, 23, 25, 28, 42, 59
11, 20, 26, 27, 28, 56
In many countries, the comma (,) may not be a valid field delimiter. The blank space, however, is a universal field delimiter. You can use MDIEditor and Lotto WE to replace all the commas with blank spaces. Select the entire drawings file. In the replace box, type , (the comma) in the Replace what text box. In the Replace with, type one or more blank spaces. Click OK. Then press the function key F5 to do a full replace. Make sure you don't leave any blank line in the file, none at all. Now, I save the file; for example, DATA-6.
In WinWord you can also move to a table column and delete it entirely (menu: Table, Delete, Columns). Thus you can move the insertion point to the "Payout" column and delete it with a few mouse clicks. After you deleted all unwanted columns, change the table to text (menu: Table, Convert, Table to text).
14 17 44 45 49 55
15 20 34 42 53 60
13 23 25 28 42 59
11 20 26 27 28 56
This is the format I strongly recommend (with blank spaces). If your data files are not in proper format, my lotto, lottery software will not run OR will yield erroneous results. These are the correct lottery data file formats to follow:
It's highly recommended to run my lottery/gambling software SORTING.EXE to sort the combinations (lines) in the data files in ascending order. The lottery utility also nicely formats the files (evenly spaced fields). It is part of the Bright / Ultimate Software packages.
In many cases, my software requires HUGE data files; i.e. a lot larger than the files of real draws (results). The requirement is easily accomplished by the SIMulated data files. The necessary SIM files are created by the Simulate routines in the Super Utilities of the Bright / Ultimate Software bundles. Also, MDIEditor and Lotto WE can create SIMulated data files (in the Random modules). Finally, move the real draw file to the top of the SIMulated file and concatenate them:
COPY DATA-6+SIM-6 D6
The Bright / Ultimate software bundles have a function that automates the concatenation procedure. It is the recommended method.
When I need to update the file with the newest lottery drawings, I logon again to the site. This time I only select the drawings from the most recent one down to the line I copied the last time (without including that drawing again). Note on a piece of paper the date when you updated your lottery files last time. I start again MDI Editor and Lotto WE and open the file DATA-6. Press Enter to start a new, blank line. Paste the data from the clipboard and repeat the process described above. At the end, delete the blank lines and save the file. Your situation may vary depending on how your favorite site displays the lottery drawings. In the end you should have a file with lines consisting of lottery / lotto drawings only.
Some lottery commissions offer two drawings a day in the digit games (pick-3, pick-4 lotteries). I recommend the inclusion of both draws in the same data file (DATA-3 or DATA-4). The draws should be included in the real sequences: the mid-day number followed by the evening number. More effort is required on a user's part. I work with a temporary Word file; e.g. PA3.TXT. I copy and paste the mid-day results table from PA Lottery web site. I convert the draw column to text. Go to the top of the file and press Enter to insert a blank line.
Go back to the lottery website and copy the evening results table. Go back to PA3.TXT and paste the table at the top. Delete the date and payout columns, and then convert the table to text. Next, I cut one mid-day draw (the bottom table) and paste it below the corresponding day of the evening results. If the mid-day draw is the last (most recent) draw, the mid-day numbers go to the top of the evening lottery numbers. Make sure the lottery data file has no blank lines. Use the utility that converts the numbers 123 to the correct LotWon format: 1 2 3. Insert the new file at the top of DATA-3, removing any empty (blank) lines.
Simply put, a strategy is a collection of filter values. My lottery software is based on filtering — that is, eliminating as many lotto combinations as possible. The filters are first analyzed for past drawings. It is clearly noticeable that the filter values repeat. They are randomly cyclical, but nonetheless cyclical. The Fundamental Formula of Gambling (FFG) rules the dynamics of the lottery filters. No other software employs filtering, real filtering. What others call filtering is nothing more than grouping the numbers based on some static criteria: odd/even, low, high, etc. The result is a huge block (group) of numbers that never changes.
Strategy selection is a huge topic that cannot be covered here. There are several pages at this Web site dedicated to the hot issue of lottery strategy selection (setting the filters). Read as many dedicated pages as you possibly can — plenty of help is available on this site. Copy and paste the ideas in one file. Then edit that file in your own words. That way you will gain unconscious expertise, in addition to the conscious education. Here are a few of the most useful links.
