# The Lottery Deltas Can Build Effective Lotto Strategies, Systems, Software

Posted by KM Klitser Mahlmberg on March 29, 2001.

To all:

I once ran the lottery deltas in Ion's MDIEditor Lotto and got some interesting results in the any/ver filter tables. One would have to do it all manually, but perhaps it would be instructive or at least interesting to do the same with those values. There might be statistical tendencies in the lottery skips systems that might be generalizable enough to allow one to eliminate certain wheeled lotto combinations.

KM

: Ion and fellow lottery players,
: I have been looking not at the numbers but the skips of the numbers that hit and the sum of those lotto skips which has a good bell shaped curve. I have not been able to project that as a tool (lottery system) as yet. Any help here?
: BigJer

: This may not be particularly what you're looking for, but it has been helpful in those instances when I've had far too many potential wheeled lotto combinations.

: I freely admit that this lottery strategy has its faults. However, since I cannot afford to play thousands of lotto tickets, I had to come up with criteria that at least decisive to cull down the herd, so to speak. It is as follows:

: Utilizing your Fundamental Formula of Gambling (FFG) I get a pool of potential lotto numbers and wheel them with one of your wheels that automatically eliminates unlikely pairs, all odds, all evens and etc.

: Unfortunately that still leaves thousands of lottery combinations (tickets) that I cannot afford to play.

: Basically what I do is copy and paste the MDIEditor Lotto file into SPSS statistical analysis software and filter out combinations from the original pool that do not meet the following criteria:

: Do wheeled combination / numbers in each position conform to historical positions based on entire history of lottery draw? If yes, then retain. Does the difference between the last and first lotto number, spread of line (deltas, average delta), conform to historical 80% statistical trend? If yes retain.

Klitser and Axiomatic Ones:

I love to give people names I believe are suited for book characters. Cyber space is a book; we only deal with characters, we see nobody. I hope you don't mind; therefore feel free to address me as Jaqk Fowuru (a.k.a. Parpaluck).

• The greatest random number/combination generator for lottery ever — IonSaliuGenerator v7.0 — makes extraordinarily good usage of lottery deltas and also standard deviation. Run it in all confidence. See the link in the footer of this page (Odds Calculator & Lottery Number Generator).

• Deltas are considered, although in a limited form, across MDIEditor and Lotto WE.

• I don't hide it. I write lottery software especially for myself; call it in–house software. It is very natural to keep a number of things as your trade secrets. My in–house software makes extensive usage of lotto deltas in multiple forms. Also, the software applies the three fundamental forms of dispersion (deviation, fluctuation). They are: standard deviation; the average of deviations disregarding the sign; average deltas (absolute differences between adjacent, neighboring numbers).

There is a multitude of considerations for not releasing each and every piece of lotto software. Writing the documentation is a very difficult task. Then, things change constantly. It is very hard keeping up with updating the software and rewriting the documentation. Besides, a share of selfishness has always been a requirement of life.

Here is a sample of a report generated by my dedicated lotto delta software (the 5 of 43 game in Pennsylvania Lottery).

Del #1 represents the 1st delta in a lotto combination or lottery drawing; that is, the unsigned difference between the 1st and 2nd number on the line (drawing). Del #4 represents the 4th delta in a lotto combination or lottery drawing; that is, the unsigned difference between the 4th and 5th number on the line (combination).

If we enter the delta string 1 12 5 5 exactly in specialized software, the program generates always 20 5/43 lotto combinations. If we enter the delta string 12 14 2 3 exactly, the program generates always 12 5/43 lotto combosnations (a favorite lotteryspeak of mine!)

We can also enter only some of the delta filters, while disabling other filters. Disabling a filter simply means typing 0 (zero) at the screen prompt (or just pressing Enter in my software). For example, 1, 12, 0, 0 (we disregard delta #3 and delta #4) generates 4,060 lotto 5/43 combinations. I didn't see a repeat of those 2 deltas in 500 drawings my software analyzed. That means those combinations make a perfect candidate for the LIE elimination function in my Bright lottery software packages. In reverse, you can wait for 2 even 3 deltas to repeat (see draw in line #14). In that case, you get a chance to win the jackpot with a few combos. The delta string 1 7 10 0 would generate 300 combinations.

• Interesting facts result from considering 2 consecutive numbers (at least two consecutives); i.e. delta = 1, position by position. The delta string 1 0 0 0 generates 111,930 5 of 43 lotto combinations; 0 1 0 0 generates 111,930 combos; string 0 0 1 0 generates 111,930 5 of 43 lotto combinations; 0 0 0 1 generates 111,930 combos. All four cases constitute a good kokostirk (candidate for LIE elimination).

• I am yet to see all deltas in consecutive order; e.g. 1 2 3 4 or 5 6 7 8, etc. I ain't seen all 4 deltas to be equal to one another; e.g. 1 1 1 1 or 6 6 6 6. It must be so because standard deviation rules!

The second part of the report shows the skips of groups of deltas (from 1 to 4) in the past of a lottery data file. For example the 2-delta group (Two Deltas) in line 1 (most recent drawing) skipped 4 lottery draws after last hit. You see in line #6 that 12 and 5 repeated in the same positions (Del #2 and Del #3).
