 Pick Games Filtering Guide

In this topic we will go through filters and explain in general how they works and how to set them up.
These methods apply to wheel system combinations and to lottery ticket numbers

All filters are grouped into a few groups. The following filters groups are available

Pick Unmatched Numbers Distribution, Pick Pairs Distribution, Pick Triples Distribution
Pick Quadruples Numbers Distribution, Pick All The Same Numbers Distribution

This topic contains links to online tutorials that explains the filters in greater details.

Filters Group - Numbers

This group contains filters for general numbers types that work with single numbers only.

The following filters are available for Pick game
Contact, Outside, Hot, Cold, Odd, Even

All these filters share the same filters condition you can choose from Condition menu.

Exclude from Pick 1, Exclude from Pick 2, Exclude from Pick 3, Exclude from Pick 4, Exclude from Pick 5, Sum Range
All these filters does not have any condition to set

Lets use the following filters:
Contact, Outside, Hot, Cold, Odd, Even

To use particular filter select appropriate Use check mark and enter filter value into a Value cell.
Choose the filter condition from small drop down menu in Condition cell.

For example if you chose to use the Contact filter:

When reducing wheel system combinations the program will examine each of combinations and check whether approve combination with the Contact numbers or not.

If Contact numbers are found in  combination numbers then the filter condition will be applied.

Whether examined combination will be approved or not depending on the Filter Value and condition type you have selected.

When generating lottery tickets the program will check whether generate ticket with the Contact numbers or not.

How many of numbers will be included (if at all) depends on the Filter Value and condition type you have selected.

Basically it is a good idea to have the combinations or tickets that include all of the general numbers types.

However you may choose to have combinations or tickets that will consisting only Contact and Even numbers for example.

In that case on the filters tree select as follows:

Contact - checked to use, Filter condition = Any Value, Filter Value not necessary to enter.

Outside - checked to use, Filter condition = Always Reject, Filter Value not necessary to enter.

Hot - checked to use, Filter condition = Always Reject, Filter Value not necessary to enter.

Cold - checked to use, Filter condition = Always Reject, Filter Value not necessary to enter.

Odd - checked to use, Filter condition = Always Reject, Filter Value not necessary to enter.

Even - checked to use, Filter condition = Any Value, Filter Value not necessary to enter.

In the result you will receive combinations or tickets that will consisting only the Contact and Even numbers in.

See online tutorial that shows how the conditions and their values work with these filters

Lets use the following filters:

Exclude from Pick 1, Exclude from Pick 2, Exclude from Pick 3, Exclude from Pick 4, Exclude from Pick 5

Depending of how many picks are in a Pick game appropriate filters will be shown within filter group

To use particular filter select appropriate Use check mark and enter filter values into a Value cell.
These filters does not have any conditions to set. you can exclude numbers from all or just selected Picks.

When reducing wheel system the program will reject all combinations that have in those numbers that you do not want.

When generating the lottery tickets the program will not generate tickets with those numbers that you do not want.

See online tutorial that shows how the conditions and their values work with these filters

Lets use the Sum Range filter

To use this filter select the Use check mark and click on the small A letter icon to open drop down edit window
Enter into that window one or more sum ranges, each sum range must be entered into a separate line and range numbers divided by - character
Click OK to close the window.
This filter have two conditions Approve and Reject.

The sum of a particular combination or ticket numbers is the sum of its digits.

In Pick games sum of combination or ticket numbers like 068 is 14 ( 0+6+8 = 14 )

You may observe the pattern of sum ranges how they occurs using Visual Analyser feature.

When reducing the wheel combinations you may enter for example 0-10 15-20 etc

This will tell the program that you want to approve or reject all those combinations of which sum falls into a ranges of either 0-10 or 15-20.

For example when the wheel system combination might be like 2 5 9, which gives us the sum of 16 ( 2+5+9 = 16)

If you have selected the Reject condition then the combination will not be included into a system you create, because the sum is 16 and you wanted all combinations with sums between 10-100 rejected.
Otherwise the combination will be included.

When generating lottery tickets you may enter for example 5-10 25-30 etc

This will tell the program that you want to approve or reject those tickets of which sum falls into ranges of either 5-10 or 25-30

In a Pick 3 game there are 27 ranges of sums in which all the combinations falls under.

In a Pick 4 game there are 36 ranges of sums in which all the combinations falls under.

Depending on game properties the sums in Visual Analyser are combined into groups of 5 or 10 sums together, but here you may enter any ranges you want.

See online tutorial that shows how the conditions and their values work with these filters

Game Numbers Layout

This group contains filters you may use to filter the wheel system combinations or create tickets of which numbers are distributed over a Ticket View in certain way as is described in analysis methods topics.

The following filters are available for Pick game
Lines Vertical, Above First Number, Between Numbers, Below Last Number, In Contact

All these filters besides Above First Number and Below Last Number share the same filters condition you can choose from Condition menu.

Above First Number and Below Last Number filters does not have only one Reject default condition

To use particular filter select appropriate Use check mark and enter filter values into a Value cell.

Lines Horizontal filter is not available in Pick game as one number is always drawn in horizontal line.

Lines Vertical

Using this filter you can control how many numbers in generated tickets or combinations should be in vertical lines.

Not all of conditions may be applied to this filter with success.

Above First Number, Between Numbers, Below Last Number

These filters allow you to approve combinations or create tickets that will have numbers located on a ticket in certain way.

For example if you choose to use Above First Number filter with Accept condition then all generated tickets or wheel system combinations will have always at least one number that is located on a Ticket View above the first number of the last drawing. On the contrary if you use Above First Number filter with Reject condition then all generated tickets or wheel system combinations will NOT have any number above of the first number of the last drawing.

In Contact

This filter also let you to approve combinations or create tickets that will have numbers located on a ticket in certain way.

Filter works with all numbers in your game so certain conditions cannot be used. Any Value filter is not working because you cannot make numbers to be in contact with all ticket numbers.

The only two conditions make sense to use with this filter: Reject if more of filter's value or Filter Proportionally

For example if you choose Reject if more of filter's value condition and set Filter Value = 1, then all generated tickets or wheel system combinations will have numbers that are spread over a Ticket View and no one will be in contact with another.

In another example if you choose Reject if more of filter's value condition and set Filter Value = 2, then all generated tickets or wheel system combinations will have numbers that will  contacting on a Ticket View with one number only.

See online tutorial that shows how the conditions and their values work with these filters

Pick General Numbers Distribution

The purpose of these filters is to reduce a Pick game full wheel system combinations or create lottery tickets with numbers that are distributes over a ticket in certain way.

You can filter these systems so they will include combinations consisting of Unmatched, Pairs, Triples, Quadruples or All The Same numbers only.

Unmatched numbers are the numbers that are all different.

For example 123, 479, 015, etc...

Foe example in a Pick 3 game there are exactly 720 combinations of unmatched numbers out of 1000.

Using Visual Analyser you may notice that in a Pick 3 game numbers are mostly drawn as unmatched numbers.

Pairs numbers are the combinations in which 2 of the same numbers repeat themselves.

For example  112, 556, 606, etc

Triples numbers are the combinations in which 3 of the same numbers repeat themselves.

For example  1112, 5565, 6066, etc

Triple combinations occur in a Pick 4 and Pick 5 game only

Quadruples numbers are the combinations in which 4 of the same numbers repeat themselves.

For example  11112, 55565, 66066, etc

Quadruple combinations occur in a Pick 5 game only

All The Same numbers are the combinations that consist all the numbers the same.

For example  111, 222, or 5555 etc

These combinations of numbers are drawn very rarely.

These filters has only one condition to set Reject

To reject particular numbers type select appropriate Use check mark and in the result when creating tickets or reducing wheel system combinations these numbers will be rejected.

For example if you want to create tickets or have combinations that are build from Unmatched numbers only then check all of the rest filters to reject them.

See online tutorial that shows how the conditions and their values work with these filters

Pick Unmatched Numbers Distribution, Pick Pairs Distribution, Pick Triples Distribution, Pick Quadruples Numbers Distribution, Pick All The Same Numbers Distribution

The purpose of these filters is to reduce a Pick game full wheel system combinations or create lottery tickets with numbers that are distributes over a ticket in certain way.

All of them share the same idea and conditions, you can apply them to a pick game numbers distribution type and filter them more.

Each of groups has the same filters:

Contact, Outside, Hot, Cold, Odd, Even, Contact - Hot, Contact - Cold, Contact - Odd, Contact - Even, Outside - Hot, Outside - Cold, Outside - Odd, Outside - Even, Hot - Odd, Hot - Even

To use particular filter select appropriate Use check mark and enter filter value into a Value cell.
Choose the filter condition from small drop down menu in Condition cell. There are two conditions to choose from: Reject If Any Number and Reject If All Numbers
