Hi edymurph, this first post is regarding your filter question:

(from the help file) What are Number Groups? Number groups divide all or selected pool numbers into several sub-pools or groups. Usually the whole number pool is divided into evenly sized groups and tickets are analyzed to see how many groups their numbers fall in. Ticket filter accepting tickets that have (not) numbers in selected groups is also available.

There are two types of number groups:

• Range groups - each group is a continuous range of numbers, e.g. 1-10, 11-20, 21-30 etc. The groups may also overlap and do not have to cover the whole number pool. So in a x/49 lottery you can define number groups like this: 1-10, 20-35, 30-49

• Discrete numbers groups - each group is a set of hand-picked numbers, e.g. 1-2-10-11-49, 3-4-5-6, 1-2-39-41-48-49. Note that a number can be included in more than one group.

You can define several named sets of number groups using Number Groups Manager. The number groups are then available in Number Groups filter and statistics.

(Your question) When I use what is in the tools tab with a draw that has repeated 12 numbers from the previous draw, does it only generate 15,015 games?

Sometimes with the 15 inside and sometimes not ... do you know why it only generates that amount?

No I don’t know why it generates that amount from within your results, but also I don’t know how you’ve set up your number groups.

From my installed version of E.L, inside the Numbers Group Filter, there is an option to use default number groups or customize my number groups. I selected customized groups each time.

(Firstly I inserted a full wheel of 3.2 million combinations (Package, Insert, Full Wheel))

My first thought was you’d be using discrete numbers (these are hand picked numbers in within a group), as you’re looking for repeating numbers over the whole 3.2 million package.

(I tried range groups (these are sets/groups of consecutive numbers) with all the 25 numbers in it’s number group, looking for min 12 & max 12, and it returns 0 each time)

• Discrete numbers groups - each group is a set of hand-picked numbers, e.g. 1-2-10-11-49, 3-4-5-6, 1-2-39-41-48-49. Note that a number can be included in more than one group.

If you’re filtering the whole package looking for Repeating Numbers, in discrete groups it let’s you specify the particular numbers you are looking for. I don’t know how this filter would be looking for repeating numbers, along each row in the ticket package though.

This filter is just checking the (25) specified numbers you’ve set in it’s group, against the whole package (from what I understand) and it’s looking for min 12 (numbers) and max 12 (numbers) along the rows, and at least 1 to 1 groups must pass (which is the one group only that has been ticked)

In discrete number groups, selecting all 25 numbers in it's group, looking for min 12 & max 12, and it returns 0 each time (as I think all 12 numbers out of the 25 group would be found all the time on each row??)

I don’t know how you’ve set up (what particular numbers are in) your number group with 1(ticked) and numbers in group min 12, max 12 (from your screenshot)

UPDATEI tried the filter Match Winning Numbers, 1 latest draw, and only selected level 12, and it returned 54,600 tickets against the full ticket package. (see screenshots)

I believe this is what you’re looking for

(Useful tip) In the filter box you can press CTRL+A to highlight all the cells (blue colour), click in any column box to remove all the ticks at once. Then click into another empty cell (not the column cells) Now all cells are blank and you can tick just 12 only.

Hope this helps!
