New Wheel Generator version will come out in the following months

This is a teaser of what will come in the new WG version. It has been a long awaited for Wheel Generator to be able to support bigger values for k,t,m and I am pleased to announce a working version of Wheel Generator which can tackle sizes for k up to 25 and m up to 20. Not every possible combinatio...

Re: WG subscription

Usage points is not a subscription neither can be converted to one. If you have a subscription however, usage points can be used to extend it. Keep in mind a subscription is always quite cheaper compared to usage points. Usage Points are a means to utilize all the apps available but is mostly intend...

Re: Did I get it right?

Yes, this is the basic and simplest idea in setting up the program to construct a covering and your interpretation of the parameters is correct. Auto-reduce will eliminate blocks if they deemed redundant (if the removal maintains the coverage equal or above the 100% you have set at the L% parameter)...

Re: Development updates

Some more indication of the optimization progress is considered as an overall improvement, including that time since last improvement and a more insightful graph. Going from 32 bit memory to 64 bit allows for some improvement to the various limits - which already works in a development 64-bit versio...

Re: Development updates

More RAM is not that important given the demands are really exponential so if 1-2GB barely do anything like allow for 0.01%-1% speedup optimization making that 10x more RAM still makes no real difference. More RAM will not allow higher v,k,t,m which is something I currently work on and rely on 64 bi...

Re: Some things about Wheel Generator

The affordable aspect is the actual cost someone plans to play with. Consider the above wheel you describe v=20,k=5,t=4,m=5. Current record for an 100% t=4 win guaranteed is around 350+ blocks and even the theoretical is 204 as indicated. This is mathematics, we cannot do something better no matter ...

Re: Some things about Wheel Generator

Hi V Dogg, the engine is not "fire and forget". First, the auto-reduce option is used in cases when we do not have somehow an approximation of b to start with. In that case, we could set an arbitrary high b value and enable the auto-reduce check-box. The engine will detect the surplus of blocks and ...

Re: Error when starting GAT Engine when adding new lottery

The equation is what is shown at the error message: [Tested draws] + 2 * [Stat.Data] + [Run Factor] < [Total available history draws]. In the above equation you have in the history 100 draws, so [Total available history draws] = 100. You also want to have GAT test against 100 draws thus [Tested draw...

Re: Error when starting GAT Engine when adding new lottery

Hi V Dogg, as for bypassing the error itslef, try to set values in both Tested Draws and stat.data that produce a sum less than the total draws as the equation shows in the error message. So, given you have 100 availabe history draws, you can e.g. use tested draws = 50 and stat.data =24 to satisfy t...

Re: New To GAT, happy to have bought it! Have questions, though

Hi V Dogg, to your questions 1. Mega Millions is a "big" game in terms of the possible combinations it can generate (5 drawn out of 70) therefore any hit performance will be lower compared to other more "normal" lotteries like 6/49. I can't comment on the hit percentages you get as this depends on h...
