As we all know the lottery must us a mathematical formula, that makes it nearly impossible to have a winner, let alone multiple winners, like keno uses. Or possibly it could be as simple as the lotto machine gives the owners the numbers that no one played out of all the possible combo's and then they rig the balls some how to bring up the un-played numbers? (Would not cross this one out completely lol) If you ever take the time to examine a single month of say PA Powerball against a list of previous years, you will notice a pattern if you dig deep enough, with an outside of the box mind set. I been considering making a spreadsheet in excel to further evaluate my thoughts, and then use that data to create a lottery simulator. These both combined should be enough to determine any possible winning combinations, or possibly at least increase the odds of picking a few numbers correctly. But I would like some outside opinions on if this is a waste of my time before exploring it further. Any feedback is welcomed; please keep this a fun and educational post and not the target of flaming.
