## Introducing Ion Saliu's New Writings, Web Pages, Software

### Lottery Strategy, Systems, Software Based on Lotto Number Frequency - Update, May 29, 2016.

• Version 5.0 improved on two very important features:
• layers of data analysis as in the mainstream LotWon software - frequency groups only;
• the skips reports show correctly for analyses greater than 1000 past drawings - yes, lotto numbers can skip sometimes over 1000 draws in the same position!

### Best Card Counting Blackjack Systems, Casino Marketing, Deception - Update, May 11, 2016.

• Blackjack counting strategy founded on three groups of cards: low (2 to 6), middle-high (7, 8, 9), high (Ace, Tens)
• Combinatorial mathematics of the reversed card counting blackjack system.
• Shoe-Start: the most efficient blackjack system of all time. It has the most solid mathematical foundation — the gambling streaks are based on undeniable formulas. The player's losing streaks are the shortest as far as the shoe-starts are concerned.

### Blackjack Basic Strategy Color Charts: Split Pairs, Double Down, Hit or Stand - Update, April 29, 2016.

• All Blackjack Playing Decisions on one page, with most intuitive color-coded cheat sheets.

### Blackjack Mathematics, Card Counting Cult, Gambling Systems, Deception, Fraud - Update, April 28, 2016.

• Despite cult following, blackjack card-counting equates to deception, fraud. The fraud of the card-counting blackjack system is two-pronged. It is defended by two pretexts, two absurd justifications: long run and variance.
• Introducing the concept of reversed card counting — a new blackjack system, strategy. The new strategy is based on negative counts and it is much easier to implement. The reverse card counting system beats the traditionalist positive-count strategy hands down — for it is about double down hands.

### Theory of Filters, Filtering, Reduction in Lotto, Lottery Software - Update, April 28, 2016.

• Axiomatic one, the filters are restrictions in specialized lottery software to reduce huge amounts of lotto combinations to play.
• This April 2016 update adds a probability analysis of safe filters and how many filters to enable and still keep a winning balance.
• More tips on organizing the lottery folders, sorting the winning reports, and finding effective strategies.

### LIE Elimination: Lottery, Lotto Strategy in Reverse for Pairs, Number Frequency - Updated April 4, 2016.

• Version 7.0 added two very important features:
• Strategy Checking
• layers of data analysis as in the mainstream LotWon software.
• Version 7.1 added the inner LIE strategy filtering as in the mainstream LotWon software; improvements in functionality.

• Version 2.0 January 2016 added a very important function: Strategy Checking
• Version 3.0 February 2016 added layers of data analysis as in the mainstream LotWon software.
• Version 3.1 April 2016 added the inner LIE strategy filtering as in the mainstream LotWon software; improvements in functionality.

### Probability of Predicting NCAA Men's Basketball Brackets with 100% Accuracy - March 19, 2016.

• Calculate probabilities, odds of predicting the perfect NCAA Men's Basketball Bracket, win the one billion dollar challenge offered by Warren Buffett.NOT!

### Bayes Theorem, Conditional Probabilities, Simulation; Relation to Ion Saliu's Paradox - February 18, 2016; updated February 19, 2016.

• The Bayes Theorem tries to determine the probability from statistical data by way of conditional probabilities.

P(A|B) = P(A and B) / P(B)

• The probability that A and B are both true divided by the probability that B is true.

The best application of the Bayes Theorem is polling. It is widely applied in the political campaigns in the United States. Polling is the most typical case of a probabilistic event in two phases. Polls show quite accurate data how various segments of population vote. But nobody can predict the voter turnout.

If the turnout is high in USA, the Democrat Party is heavily favored to win. There was an amazing fact in the 2012 presidential elections. The TV pundits determined that Obama (a Democrat) won the state of Pennsylvania — after only less than 10% of the vote count. The exit polls showed a large number of minorities and women voting, especially in the city of Philadelphia. Those two groups vote overwhelmingly Democrat. The Bayes' Theorem indicated, beyond statistical doubt, that Obama would be the winner — and he was by a substantial margin.

### Offline Odds Calculator, Number Combination Generator for Lottery, Lotto, Powerball, Mega Millions, Euromillions, Horses, Sports, Roulette - January 8, 2016.

• The two online ActiveX controls have been some of the most popular destinations to my site: Odds Probability Calculator and Generator of Numbers, Combinations.
• Only Internet Explorer allows ActiveX controls. In time, Internet Explorer was more and more stigmatized by security vulnerabilities and its browser market share dropped to the drains.
• Therefore, I decided to make the two ActiveX controls available as standalone software for Windows. Thus, the lottery players can run the software offline, on their computers anytime. The software is free to download and run forever, with no strings attached.

### Enigma Permutations, Encryption Decryption Keys, Code, Software - December 22, 2015.

• Create Enigma-type code by generating permutations, then selecting encryption keys: Permutations that do not repeat elements in the same positions as originally. The code has no clues, therefore it is impossible to decrypt for all intents and purposes.

### WINHLP32 in Windows 10 — Help Files for Older Software Programs, Applications - December 9, 2015.

• Axiomatic one, on every version of Window since XP we have had to tolerate the absence of winhlp32.exe.  Eventually, Microsoft would create an install file, specific for the version of Windows you needed winhlp32.exe for.
• I needed a solution in order to get help working with my own creation MDIEditor And Lotto WE on Windows 10. A number of users had already complained that they were unable to find help using my Windows software.
• The problem has affected quite a few software titles. You can find here and apply an elegant solution.

### The Best Software for Pick (Digit) Lottery, Gambling, Lotto, Powerball, Mega Millions, Euromillions, Keno, Blackjack, Roulette, Baccarat, Horse Racing, Sports Betting, Probability, Odds, Statistics, Combinatorial Mathematics, Lexicographical Ordering, Random Generators - November 3, 2015.

• Major upgrades to the shuffle function (option S = Shuffle in Combine5,6.exe
• Previously, the shuffle function worked with a limited number of lottery filters. That behavior was imposed by the low speed of yester year's computers.
• Now, the lines in the lotto clusters (kinduv Sudoku grids) are sorted before the filters will be applied. In fact, the software gained also speed as I improved the algorithms. That's good news for those who wanted to apply especially the filters targeting all 5/6 numbers in delta format from hundreds of thousands, even millions of past drawings in the data files (including the simulated lottery draws).

• The following 5 Web pages introduce and present the Ultimate Software for pick 3 4, lotto 5 6, horse racing trifectas - September 6, year of grace 2015.

### The Best Strategy for Lottery, Gambling, Sports Betting, Horse Racing, Blackjack, Roulette - May 1, 2015.

• Is there such a thing — the best strategy for gambling and lottery? Actually, is there possibly any strategy to win those widely-considered cases of absolutely-random events?
• Actually, everything is random to begin with. The differences are created by different probabilities, different degrees of certainty that lead to various degrees of randomness.
• Ion Saliu coolheadedly explains that the best strategy for gambling and lottery is a reality and it is based on mathematics. His theory and software in lottery, gambling, sports betting, horse racing, blackjack, roulette, etc. may be the only honest and no-nonsense example. There might be a few other cases, but Ion is not fully aware of.

The Super Forums came to an end in March of 2014, soon after my… birthday (March 9)! But — there is good news! I have copies in Word format of all posts I published in my forums. I'll have to convert them to HTML — not an easy task. I will republish here the most important posts. Importance is in the mind of the beholder. That is, I decide what materials will see life again. The pages will be listed in the second section.

### Lottery - All About Lottery – Mathematics, Social Purpose, History, Software, Systems - June 18, 2013.

The first lottery systems, followed later by gambling systems, were based on observation. It all happened long before the computers were invented. Such manual gambling systems are still in usage today, especially by old players and women. The so-called paper-and-pencil systems, for example, count how many times lottery numbers were drawn and how they were paired.

The negative camp will stress two points in the modern era. One is a reminiscence of the mysticism era: fetishism. The other is pseudo-mathematical. They represent the facts in a fashion that belongs to fetishism. They claim, in a vocal manner: "The lottery is random" — as if there were other phenomena that are non-random! The fetishism factor: "The lotto balls don't have memory" — as if plastic balls were human beings to remember rules!

• "The lotto balls don't have memory" is reminiscent of the mystical era. "The lottery is random" represents “modern pseudo-mathematics”.

### Odds of One Powerball Jackpot Winner Relative to Prize Money or Number of Tickets Sold - November 30, 2012.

### Draw the Golden Ratio, or Golden Proportion, or Divine Proportion; Golden Number(s) in Geometrical Representation - March 20, 2012.

• I've seen quite a few misrepresentations of the Golden Ratio in its geometrical form. Wikipedia even erased a few badly constructed drawings of PHI! In fact, drawing the Divine Proportion is an easy procedure. You can find here the best methodology to divide a segment into two parts, a, b that satisfy the Golden Proportion. Segment b divided by segment a equals segment a divided by the entire segment a + b.
• You will find also some original mathematical concepts and procedures.

### Demise of Gambler's Fallacy, Reversed Gambler's Fallacy Caused by Ion Saliu and Fundamental Formula of Gambling (FFG) - November 18, 2011.

The infamous Gambler's Fallacy was the first bullet shot at yours truly, as it were. I was promoting the Fundamental Formula of Gambling (FFG) and potentially winning gambling systems derived from the FFG. My opponents, most of them vociferous and aggressive, posed me with this “mathematical” situation:
• “You lose once; the probability that you will lose next time is the same as before. You lose twice; the probability that you will lose the third time in a row is the same as before.... and so on.... ad infinitum, if you will....” It's like a god of odds will always “create” losing outcomes for the player (always winning situations for the gambling house)!
• My forums, new and old, always have been a place of debating the gambler's fallacy and the reversed gambler's fallacy.
