Now, most lottery corporations publish their numbers picked and the number of people who matched them. They also publish their total sales as well. e.g. numbers A B C D E F G Match all 6: A B C D E F G = 2 winners Match 5 of 6: A B C D E F, A B C D E G, A B C D F G, etc = 10 winners Match 4... Match 3... Some number combinations have resulted in a 10 way split while other numbers have resulted in 0 winners. So obviously, it is better to pick the ones with no splits than the ones with. Is there any way to use that information to mathematically determine which numbers will least likely be picked by someone else (and thus least chance of a split jackpot)? What I have so far is: 1. Use a random number generator 2. Filter it against commonly picked combinations (1 2 3 4 5 6), prime numbers, odds only, even only, dates etc 3. ??? (filter it against past lottery results) 4. Profit?
