(Number of loops before giving up Randomizing)-
When randomly generating a large amount of lottery numbers such as
for lottery pools, the program can sometimes take a while when it
gets down to the final few possible combination that are left.
This setting will cause the program to give up and stop the
processing if this number of loops passes (3000 shown above) since
the last good number was found. We have found 3000 to be a
good default number but you might want to change it according to the
speed of your personal computer.
