Artificial Intelligence or “AI” can be defined as the “capability of a program to understand from preceding knowledge in an try to predict future events”. Though this could possibly look a forlorn hope in creating lottery predictions, let's see if this could possibly be achievable.

The significant trouble in analysing lottery benefits is the big quantity of achievable combinations. In a normal “40 x six” ball game there are three,838,380 lines to pick out from.

Producing A Beginning Point For A Lotto AI Method

It tends to make sense to minimize the achievable quantity pool prior to we implement any AI possibilities. I will use the “Prime” probability program which assumes there will be two primes, 1 odd and three even numbers in every winning line.

We'll attempt to use AI to group the prime benefits into some sort of pattern when they do take place.

For instance, the final six weeks benefits of NZ Lotto have been:

 10,15,17,19,35,39 four,16,20,25,29,37 two,10,24,26,29,33 7,14,17,18,25,30 four,20,22,34,36,37 13,14,27,31,38,40 

The numbers in benefits two,three,four and six meet the prime program criteria so we only want to appear at these lines. If we can establish a pattern inside the prime benefits then we can tremendously minimize our combinations for when the prime program numbers come up.

We'll use the Structured Query Language, or SQL, to query the prime program database of all achievable lottery combinations a total 575,586 lines of six numbers.

The structure of the database is as follows:

 Quantity kinds: prime,prime,odd,even,even,even Column name: n1,n2,n3,n4,n5,n6 For instance: three,five,9,10,14,28 

Working with A SQL Query To Recognize The Lottery Pattern

What I will do is make a SQL query that selects every line of winning prime program numbers. We can then combine the queries in an “and/or” statement to cover the various scenarios.

In this way, we can understand the commonalities involving the various benefits, just like a actual life AI application.

Most of the prime benefits above contained at least one particular quantity divisible by four. We can cover that situation with this query:

 n4%four= or n5%four= or n6%four=

Records returned: 525,690

The % symbol is a particular code in SQL which offers us the remainder from dividing the two numbers.

The combined query returned 276,210 combinations, a reduction of about 40%, which is pretty impressive.

I noticed the initially even quantity was normally equal to or significantly less than 14 and when I factored that parameter in, the combinations returned have been 165,726.

In future weeks I will appear at other typical elements, for instance excluding numbers from current benefits.


This post explored the possibility of working with AI methods and SQL to minimize achievable combinations. By analysing benefits that meet particular parameters it really should be achievable to minimize line numbers and boost our lottery possibilities.
