What is the best way to pick lottery numbers?

The use of this lottery software program - The Lottery Picker™ 2016

This (below) one of our FAQ's demonstrating the use of the Random Number Generator.
Click the link above to find out more about this powerful lottery program.

What does option #6 "Generate Random Numbers" do?
This window shows the program making random selections based on the frequency of times drawn that can be specified by you. 

Its a well known fact that one of the best ways to pick lottery numbers is to take a wheel of the most drawn numbers and randomize them in to new sets of numbers to play.  Or, even take the least drawn numbers and randomize them into sets

For example:  lets say you want a set of numbers based on the fifteenth (15th) most drawn numbers in each column.  You would select "15th" as shown below.  The program will generate a set of random numbers based on your selection "15th" up to the 1st (or) most drawn numbers for each column and display a set of numbers similar to what is shown in the tan box below.
YES, if you select 15th, the program also uses 1st - 15th most drawn numbers and picks randomly from those.  This will give you many, many, many combinations of the top drawn balls.   The possible combination for the range you select are displayed.
Now if you choose 1st. from the list, the output would be the same each time you clicked 1st. because there is no more numbers for the program to randomly pick from.  But if you choose 2nd, the program will randomly pick from the 1st. and 2nd. most drawn balls for each column.  This will generate many combinations of just the two most drawn balls of each column.  This is one of the greatest number picking features of The lottery Picker™ 2016 For a better understanding, read below.

Above is the Main Window showing the Most Drawing Lottery Numbers for the "Date-Range" selected

(Example 1): Below  the user has processed the generation of 15 Random numbers from among the 7th Most-Drawn-Balls of each column.
Notice the time it took down in the lower right hand corner of the screen.  (That is 96 milliseconds).  In this example, the user has
selected 7 rows in order but in reality, you can pick and choose the rows by holding the "ctrl" key while clicking.
To select the least drawn balls to randomize, select a few of the rows closer to the bottom.  It's up to you!

(Example 2): Below the user has randomized 15 numbers from his own file called "Moms Numbers".
Notice the time it took down in the lower right hand corner of the screen.  (That is 138 milliseconds)
This is a great lottery program to import your own numbers and and use this window to randomize them into
many different combinations of the same picks. (wheeling)
(Example 2): Below, the user has clicked the button green button: "Add Selected Numbers To Keeper Box".  The 15 numbers that were
generated in the above photo have now been sent to the users "Keepers" file on the Main Window and saved.
As you can see, it will check the numbers and skip any that may be found to be a matching row.
(Top Example): The way the random works when the user has selected the option "Randomize "Most Drawn" balls" is…  Say you select (3rd), you will get randomly selected numbers made up of the TOP 3 drawn balls of each column.  If you Continuously click 3rd. it will still be the first, second, and third most drawn balls but randomized.
If I keep clicking (1st), it keeps giving me the same number, why?
The reason the random numbers come up the same is you keep clicking in the FIRST (1st) or (a random of the 1st most drawn balls).  Since there are no more numbers to randomize with, the numbers can’t change. 
Example of 1st most drawn balls:
(2,14,27,42,49,20 )
Example of 2nd most drawn balls:
(1,15,19,37,48,6 )

5 Randomized sets of numbers generated from the 1st and 2nd most drawn balls as shown above.  As you can see, it keeps the numbers in the correct column.  Thus the numbers (1) or (2) could only be used in column 1.  The numbers (15) or (14) could only be used in column 2.  The numbers (19) o (27) could only be used in column 3.  The numbers (37) or 42) could only be used in column 4.  The numbers (48) or (49) could only be used in column 5.  And, the numbers (6) or (20) could only be used in column MoneyBall column. 

This is just an example of Randomizing the 2nd most drawn balls.  There are 64 possible combinations that could be generated here.

No duplicate numbers will be generated.



This is pretty straight forward.  Looking at "Example 2", the user can select from the drop-down list any of their files to Randomize.  In the example 2, the user has selected a file named "Moms Numbers" and has randomized them in to different combinations.  If you notice the little boxes to the left and in the center of the window, you can tell that the user can also just type in some last minute numbers to be included in the randomization.
This is just some of the different combinations of numbers that will be generated from randomizing just the 2nd. most drawn balls of each column.  Just think of how many different combination could be generated using the 15th most drawn balls.  It's mind boggling....
