Mathematical Sequences
I'm presently working on a Fibonacci inspired number sequence as a predictor for lottery numbers. I've read that this won't work because lottery drawings are not naturally occurring phenomena, but I think it will work since we and all we do are products of nature. Well, my sequence was working out fine until it started to mirror itself. I'm going to continue extending it in hope that this is just a phase in its development to useful maturity. Does anyone else here have any experience with developing mathematical sequences for the purpose of lottery predictions? I need to hear from you with any input you might have. So far, avoiding patterns and keeping the numbers within pool parameters have proven to be the greatest challenges. I've worked out the parameter problem, so now I need to deal with this mirror image of results that has cropped up. Does anybody have any ideas at all? Thanks in advance.

Re: Mathematical Sequences
What you've read is correct. Fibonacci sequences can have many applications, but they are useless in predicting random lottery draws. They have been used in many gambling strategies but they do not overcome the house edge. Nevertheless, learning systems including Fibonacci and databases can be fun and educational. Good LUCK.

powerball,
I'm not convinced that mathematical sequences can't be successfully applied to lottery play. I just haven't been able to develop a useful sequence so far.
Actually, about the only thing that can overcome the huge edge that lotteries take on payoff odds is being lucky enough to win a huge jackpot as quick as possible... and then quitting! LOL

Fibonacci?
Ayenowitall, Hopefully this is not a dead question yet (for the board).
Here's my 2 cents worth: Kudos to you for being a creative dreamer...
It is my personal opinion, that yes, numerically gifted (and lucky) persons have already "cracked" the lotto and walked away with jackpots. However, you needn't be paranoid. The lotto officials are not unduly worried. The odd clever one here and there is just going to fuel lotto playing behaviour  to the corp's advantage mostly. And if the number of winners becomes a bit of a problem, they will simply increase the number of balls in a game (i.e. 6/39 to 6/45, or 6/49 to 6/51).
However, people everywhere are getting cleverer and,
after all, what is the main intent of most of the participants on this lotto 649 board?
Most of the players on this board use statistical math because it would seem most obviously suited to the lotto problem.
My questions is, why are you applying Fibonacci, which is an infinite series, and one that goes from very small numbers to really large numbers, to a finite set of possibilities? Surely, even statistics is more predictive than Fibonacci...?
It would seem to me that you must be using more than just Fibonacci  not even a branch application, but (specially designed? a hybrid.
The limited amount of information you included when posing your question  has rendered your question fairly opaque...
I am not a mathmetician but an artist. (Any mathmeticians want to add anything?)
If you are sincere, you'd probably be better off discussing your ideas at length with math theorists. (However, it might be hard to find one to take your quesion seriously  the individual would have to be math savvy and creative and open). I've met one or two very creative math theorists in my time, but they have real jobs, as scientists or systems architects, and are making lots of money in those fields.
Good luck!

mirage,
In my initial post, I said that I was working on a "Fibonacci inspired" number sequence. Even though the work of Fibonacci is fundamental to chaos theory, the Fibonacci sequence itself is not exactly a complicated concept. You might want to read read up on exactly what Fibonacci was trying to accomplish when he developed his sequence.
I don't exactly want to give away the store, but let's just say that I'm applying other principles to the number sequence in order to make it useful for various lottery games. Yes, the sequence is infinitely long, and while the possible outcomes for a lottery are limited, the numbers drawn could go on in a series indefinitely. I've found a way to make those very large numbers both useful and manageable. What I haven't found is a way to keep the sequence from degenerating into a pattern when I apply it to the parameters of any given lottery pool.
Certainly somebody on this site has done some similar work. My ability with mathematics is only slightly better than average, but I'm quite persistent. Any input from anyone with this kind of experience would be appreciated. Thanks for keeping the thread alive.

Anybody know anything germane/done any work with chaos theory? There is one regular on the board who references chaos theory in signature. I know that for years persons have been working on useful applications of chaos theory for predicting the stock market. How about the lotto?

Chaos theory, neural networks, artificial intelligence, fractal math, etc., etc. cannot predict random lottery draws since the previous sequence of the numbers has no influence on the next number. Chaos theory can predict the boundaries, but we cannot plot the movement of objects within the boundary.
However, if you buy my superdeeduper system, you too can predict the winning numbers based on hyperdynamic, quasisemiregular, superscientific, postarithmetic postulates!

I think the best way to get the maximum advantage from your chosen numbers is by using a reduced permutation. The smallest prize is for (3) numbers.
I chose (10) numbers of which there are 120 different combinations of (3). These can be covered by (12) lines. If you want use (12) numbers, the combinations of (3) jumps to 220 and that will require 24 lines. You have to use squared paper to figure out how to enter your numbers. We were using 24 numbers in boxes of (6). This is not cheap so it needs several players to make it worth while. Such a permutation would involve using 72 lines. The bottom line is that you still have to pick the right numbers.

I have a feeling that you never played any quick picks in your entire life ...I know you are playing wheels all the time...
Continue... it is a good way to approach a hobby of yours...

Hi ayenowitall,
How is your System Progressing. Have you had Any Breakthroughs Yet, OR have you Put it on the Back Burner for the time being.
I have Found the Work of Fibonacci thought Provoking. I came up with a System of my Own, a Hybrid of the Fibonacci Infinite Number Sequence Series, which I Attempted to Incorporate into a Lotto in the Following Manner.
If we were to Use the Six Numbers Drawn for an Individual Draw, say Numbers 010203040506 ( After Numerical Sorting ) for Example, the Results would be as Follows :
Numbers 01 ( First Number ) + 02 ( Second Number ) = 03
Then the Result from Above ( 03 ) + 02 ( Second Number ) = 05
Then the Result from Above ( 05 ) + 03 ( Third Number ) = 08
Then the Result from Above ( 08 ) + 04 ( Fourth Number ) = 12
Then the Result from Above ( 12 ) + 05 ( Fifth Number ) = 17
Then the Result from Above ( 17 ) + 06 ( Sixth Number ) = 23
So the Hybrid Fibonacci Number for Combination 01 02 03 04 05 06 would be 23. 23 is Also the LOWEST Number Achievable Using this Method in a 649 Lotto which Produces a Total of 13,983,816 Combinations.
If we were to Use Another Six Numbers Drawn for an Individual Draw, say Numbers 444546474849 ( After Numerical Sorting ) for Example, the Results would be as Follows :
Numbers 44 ( First Number ) + 45 ( Second Number ) = 89
Then the Result from Above ( 89 ) + 45 ( Second Number ) = 134
Then the Result from Above ( 134 ) + 46 ( Third Number ) = 180
Then the Result from Above ( 180 ) + 47 ( Fourth Number ) = 227
Then the Result from Above ( 227 ) + 48 ( Fifth Number ) = 275
Then the Result from Above ( 275 ) + 49 ( Sixth Number ) = 324
So the Hybrid Fibonacci Number for Combination 44 45 46 47 48 49 would be 324. 324 is Also the HIGHEST Number Achievable Using this Method in a 649 Lotto which Produces a Total of 13,983,816 Combinations.
The Interesting thing about this Hybrid System, is that the Second Number is Accounted for TWICE, which is Probably One of its Downfalls.
