The above web page delves into a two part system promoted as a 'possible killer lotto system' featuring selecting a 'favourite' number based on skips. Read the web page for more details.

After creating a program to analyse average and meadian skips for a drawn number over all previous draws of a lottery history I was disappointed to discover the variation in results were limited. For a 45 number lottery the range was from 6 to 8 and a 49 number lottery ranged from 6 to 9 with only one result being 6.

eg: a number has a summed total of skips which, when divided by the total number of times it was drawn, shows the average of the skips.

Increasing the detail of the results to include 2 decimal places did not help to show any immediately usable value in the numbers. Following a few hours of pondering I came to realize nearly the same results can be achieved with the division of the total number of games in a lottery history by the total number of times a number has been drawn.

eg: in a 6/45 lottery with 907 draws: #8 is found to have an average skip size of 6.34 by summing all the skips sizes and dividing by the number of times it was drawn: 139

It can also be calulated that 907 draws / 139 total occurrences equals 6.52: a very minor difference.

The maximum difference between the two calculations was 0.33.

So if you are able to use the average skip of a number then simply divide the total draws by the total times drawn for that number.
