: Hi
: My Lotto-6 winning pattern Part 3 has no numbers in Five = Tot col. is this normal. I used 2000 past drawings and 100 lotto drawings.
: Thanks

• What it means is that “Five” is (almost) always equal to “Total drawings analyzed”. Sometimes, it can be actually 100,000 or more! So, as I said in a previous post, you should safely set the minimum value of “Five” to a number equal to “Total drawings used” (easily 2000, or 4000). But you should never use the maximum value of “Five”. Maybe in the future, when powerful computers will let us use data-6 files of over 1,000,000 (one million drawings – mostly simulated, of course)…
In your case: you analyzed 2000 lottery drawings; always make “Five” = 2000; always make “MAX-FIVE” = 0 (zero; or just press {Enter}).
Baby, I hope it is very clear now…
