**Will you explain what you mean by double and triple announcers? I thought they were comparable to Gail's trailing #s. thanks **

Rebeckah, single announcers answer the question "if the 12 hits what number occurs most frequently in the next draw?" for example - what number does the 12 announce. Double announcers answer the question "If I see the 12-23 pairing, what numbers

*does that pair announce*" There can be two answers

First, look at each draw where the 12

**or** the 23 hit and add the

**single ** announcers, second look at draws where

**both** 12-23 hit - the double announcers. You can extend this to triple announcers, 12-23-45 say, and look single - 12 or 23 or 45 - or double 12-23, 12-45,23-45 or triple 12-23-45.

No commercial software, that I know of, looks at double,triple, etc announcers

, as a pair/triple etc and gives the announced number, they only combine the single announcers.

Gail Howard and Lotto Director only add single announcers

Don't forget, numbers can

**announce** other numbers and numbers can be

**announced by** other numbers - essentially looking forward and looking backward - GH trailing numbers.

Check the lotto glossery at the bottom for more definitions.
