THIS PAGE IS DEDICATED
TO Late THOMAS DONOVAN, MY FRIEND, MENTOR, AND LOTTO STUDY PARTNER
After studying Australian
Lotto for over 17 years or since the early eighties. We have found out
a lot of information.
The Lotto Shack is now going to share this information with you, Free
of Charge, to allow you to play better and smarter.
Even in the early days of the old 6 from 40 format, it was noticed that,
the following draw for any given data base, that out of the eight numbers
drawn, yes! The supplementaries were taken into consideration. That the
following weeks draw on a MEAN AVERAGE, at least 2 numbers reappeared
the following week, but which two numbers has still not been resolved
by this office as of yet.
To prove a point, please check our new feature of the Skip and Hit Charts
by clicking on the navigation button for this feature, and choose the
data base you wish to view.
ODDS
and EVENS (2x2) Method:
Also some thing else which has shown over the years.
If the winning numbers from the last week's draw, do not reappear
the following week, then we have found over the years, that the winning
numbers for the following week's draw are usually within 2 points
either side of this previous week's winning numbers. 
For an example, let's say that
Lotto Number 20 won last week, in any given Lotto Draw.
So we automatically take 20 as one of selections.
We now included Lotto numbers 18 and 19 for the low side.
For the High side we include Lotto numbers 21 and 22 as part of our selections.
Do this for all the winning numbers drawn in any particular data base.
You may now end up with a rather large amount of selections.
This is when you should consider using a wheeling system.
May it be from a Computer program, Lotto Book, or paper plan, impose your
selections.
Or better still, play All the ODD Numbers as one selection and all the
Even numbers as another selection.
Records show that sometimes all the drawn numbers are either EVEN or ODD.
Check out the last table on any
of the Lotto shack Statistics pages, just above the computer predictions,
and you will see this has happened in the past.
TREY
METHOD.
Actually it was
Tom who first came up with this idea. This was made up before the
currant 6 from 45 format. And it still worked all those years ago
with the old 6 from 40 format. His idea was to use all Lotto numbers
dividable by "3" or multiples of "3"

This one is very easy, so let
look at the numbers, shall we;
03 06 09
12 15 18 21 24 27 30 33 36 39 42 45
At the time in Perth, an Official
system 14 was the highest that you could play.
This was before I came across Wheeling Systems for Computers. Yes! There
were some very good wheeling systems for the Commodore 64 Computer, one
very good , that beats any IBM program to date.
Therefore it was brought to Tom's notice that the Lotto numbers "3"
and "13" where lucky numbers for me and so the Lotto Numbers
with an actual figure "3" were then looked at. Now look at these
numbers;
03
13 23 30 31 32 33 34 35 36 37 38 39 43
You will now see that there
are 14 numbers, the same as an official System entry.
SOME INTERESTING FACT HERE.
Going through the historical Data base, please feel free to use your Search
Engine Database Archive to do this. Check the Winning Numbers for draw
633.
For the moment let's take the
draw number and bring it to a single number.
6 + 3 + 3 (Three digit's)
6 + 3 = 9 + 3 (Two digit's)
9 + 3 = 12 (Two digit's)
1 + 2 = 3 (Single digit)
So what where the winning numbers
for draw 633…Interesting isn't it?
Had another theory on this, for another draw but it did not work.
But still one more Draw for this theory to work for, and Draw it is still
to come up.

So who is to say that this
theory would not work for your particular State Lotto examples would be;
South Australia Monday Extra
 6 from 45 Format.
Queensland Gold Midweek  6 from 45 Format.
New South Wales Monday  6 from 44 Format.
(But here only playing with 13 numbers  up to Lotto number 39)
New South Wales Wednesday  6 from 44 Format
(But here only playing with 13 numbers  up to Lotto number 39)
Victorian Midweek Lotto 
6 from 40.
(But here only playing with 13 numbers  up to Lotto number 39)
Australian Soccer Pools  6 from 38 Format.
(But here only playing with 12 numbers  up to
Lotto number 38)
FOR
OVERSEAS FORMATS:
New Zealand Saturday  6 from
40 Format.
(But here only playing with 13 numbers  up to Lotto number 39)
United Kingdom Wednesday 
6 from 49 Format.
United Kingdom Saturday  6 from 49 Format.
Canadian Wednesday  6 from 49 Format.
Canadian Saturday  6 from 49 Format.
(All Above 6from49 Lotto formats)
(Are played with 15 numbersup to Lotto number 48)
Irish Wednesday  6 from 42 Format.
Irish Saturday  6 from 42 format.
(For Irish Lotto, only playing with 13 numbers
 up to Lotto number 39)
The Lotto Shack has looked
at the following groups of numbers, and the results for the their entire
database is very poor;
01 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17
18 19 21 31 41 (14 numbers still)
02 12 20 21 22 23 24 25 26
27 28 29 32 42 (14 numbers still)
So why then does the Lotto numbers with a figure
"3" work better.
We do not know. We can not answer that one for you, but it does work.
HOW TO WIN ON A REGULAR BASIS:
Many people make money by playing
Lotto.
In this section we will explore the secrets used to get consistent winning
from Lotto. They may not be the First Division, but regular small division
wins while waiting for the BIG ONE, is really nice, don't you think so?
NOW!
Lets get started and learn how to play the Lotto Game to WIN!
BIASES:
In order to scientifically play Lotto, biases must be isolated and used
to your advantage.
Biases causes an event to happen consistently.
In lotto biases can be caused by inconsistency:
Weight of Ball.
Amount of Paint on the Ball.
The actual colour of the ball.
Some real PET theories from
the Lotto Shack:
Actual GROUND temperate at the time of the draw. (Seasonal Factor)
The reality ground humidity at the time of the draw. (Seasonal)
The studio lights at the time of drawing. (Heat factor on balls)
These theories have not been proven, then again they have not been disproven.
Also have been asked many times if we have any record has to the winning
numbers, came out as In Coloured Ball's.
Have never looked at this, but who is to say this is not another way of
looking at selecting Lotto Numbers.
So therefore, the drag coefficient
of each ball is different, and therefore patterns will develop that can
be tracked.
This inconsistency causes a bias which becomes noticeable in you analysis.
There is no need to understand what causes biases. You only need to know
how to use these biases to your advantage.
Please CLICK on the Navigation
buttons for:
Skip and Hit's Charts.
And maybe the Fall of Ball Charts.
BEST NUMBERS
TO PICK:
If you look at each of the
different Lotto games, you will find the best numbers (most frequently
drawn) are always different.
Using simple methods we will learn how to discover these bias's or differences
so they can be used to predict future numbers.
There two schools of thoughts regarding how to play numbers than seem
to be randomly drawn (See section on Random).
You either play the ones that come up the most, or the ones that are OVERDUE
to come up.
To beat any given Lotto game,
the Lotto Shack suggest that you play numbers that show a HIGH frequency
rather than a LOW frequency of occurrence.
(See our Fall of Ball Charts too see what numbers perform better)
BELL
CURVE REDUCTION:
It can be shown that significant
portions of the previous games drawn, possess number sums in a small band
around a centre sum. Thus it would be desirable (to further reduce costs)
to remove from a wheeling system any games that possess number sums outside
that band.
This reduction technique will remove any games that have a number sum
out side the start sum and end sum range.
Example 1:
You desire your wheeling system to cover about 80% of the possible sums.
By examining the percentage column we can see that a band of +/ 40 around
the centre sum of 138, covers 80% of the previous draws. Thus we would
select a start sum of 98 (13840) and a Stop sum of 178 (138+40).
Example 2:
Imagine you have selected 20 numbers and you wish to use a 5 from 6 guarantee
wheeling system but can only afford to cover up to 1000 and not the 1336
games that must be covered. You do not wish to compromise and drop to
a system 19 so what can you do?
Make several reductions until
you have the desired number of games required. Start off with small number
deviation around the centre sum and increase it with each reduction attempt.
Eventually you will generate a system with the required number of games.
Note: If the wheeling system had a specific guarantee then the guarantee
will no longer hold true once the system has been reduced. However it
is possible to use the percentage figure mentioned above as the approximate
success percentage that the guarantee will be upheld.
(Please see Computer Lotto Programs for further information)
ARE LOTTO GAMES RANDOM:
Randomness Testing, using a
scientifically proven method called the "CHISquared Test" shows
most Lotto draw's are NOT that Random.
A Graph showing the randomness of a particular draw database using this
method shows us that.
A Lotto program used by the Lotto Shack shows us a graph for any given
Lotto game.
From this program, the Random chart shows that Points above
zero indicator line indicate that the draws exhibit randomness.
Whilst points below zero Indicator line indicate that the draws are not
random.
Using the Saturday Lotto 6
from 45 Format, this chart shows us, that most of the draws fell BELOW
the zero indicator line.
And into the NOT RANDOM AREA.
Also going on the results of the latest Saturday 6 from 45 Format, shows
that the draws are heading from the RANDOM AREA and towards the zero indicator
line, and more than probably past it and into the thr Not RANDOM AREA,
where it is more than likely to be for some time, from previous indicated
results.
(please see our Skip and Hit Charts to the results)
Commercial
Lotto Programs:
The Lotto Shack has seen and
tested many Lotto Programs.
It now uses only two programs for the IBM.
It would be a matter of choice to which program that you may use.
Wheeling
Systems:
The lotto Shack likes to use
a certain wheeling system for the Syndicates that we are conducting.
Which wheeling system is up to you, let the amount of money you can afford
to spend, be your guide as to which wheeling system you use.
Or play with the Lotto Shack
Weekly Syndicate.
Or save up your money and buy a share in the Lotto Shack Bonus Draw syndicate.
You can also reduce your cost
by using special FILTERS from within the program to reduce the amount
of Lotto Games you play by using any of the following:
Bell Curve Stats.
Boxing Reduction.
Consecutive Number reduction.
Odds and Evens Reduction.
Previous Draw Reduction.
So which ever reduction method
you use is up to the person. The Lotto Shack never uses any of these filters.
But also click on the navigation
bar for the Lotto Shack Wheeling Systems.
Or use a very good OnLine
Number Selector, by going to Lotto
Selections
Well that is all that we can think of for the moment, but should any other
information becomes knowledge it will be pasted here.
So feel free to come back and
