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...

Re: Hi all

Hi swaggy, typically predictions become available at most a few hours after the latest draw takes place when everything runs smoothly. There can be situations where this is not possible. If more than 24 hours have passed and no new prediction becomes available or even if the latest draw is not shown...

Re: Information Request about the Lotto Software

Hi Jose, currently Brazil lotteries are not in the active list of automatically updated lotteries therefore their history results should be imported manually.

Re: New Wheel Generator 1.8.5.1 and GAT Engine 3.0.2 versions

WG's current algorithm is semi-automatic. The core optimization principle is to have a "correct" bias for the current state of the covering which allows bad moves by making the covering worse temporarily which later will generate a better outcome. There can't be an exact definition on what would be ...

Re: New Wheel Generator 1.8.5.1 and GAT Engine 3.0.2 versions

It is not about time, it is mostly about getting improvements. If after a few minutes we don't get improvements, the typical action is to adjust the bias slider to the left (and also downgrade with the bias multiplier when needed to make the search a bit tighter at each adjustment). So, if e.g. you ...
