1. ## need ideas on detecting trends or patterns in lottery...

Hello everyone, thanks for read this and help me first...

motivated by the story of MIT students who built a system to win the lottery, I began to analyze lottery numbers in my city ...
Each day there are four draws, each draw leaves a 4-digit number.
From 0000 to 9999.

For example the 1234
You can bet units (4), tens (34), hundred (234) or thousands (1234)

I am working with the tens and putting together a history of all drawings and processing them with a program that I programmed in Basic.

At the moment I am analyzing the following in the tens (00 to 99):

• the frequency with which numbers are from 00 to 09, 10 to 19, 20 to 29 ... to ... 90 to 99.
• the frequency with which numbers are pairs or odds.
• the frequency with which the numbers are greater or less than 50.

• the frequency with which the numbers are housed in each one of the quartiles 0-24, 25-49, 50-74, 75-99.

what else I can consider to maximize the chances of getting more winning numbers? Any idea?

thanks!

why not look at the frequency of the number that occurs the most and see if this is statistically significant?
