CAN SOFTWARE HELP YOU WIN THE NEXT POWERBALL LOTTERY? _ Want an edge the next time the Powerball or Mega Millions lottery jackpots get to big numbers? Software developer Mark McCracken says his program, The Lottery Picker, can increase your chances. The software also helps streamline the labor of buying, filling out, and checking multiple tickets. But it'll set you back $140.
... McCracken says The Lottery Picker works based on algorithms using past numbers. It keeps a database of all the numbers ever drawn, and looks for winning combinations.
... Despite the fact that lotteries are random, McCracken says it's "just a well known fact that some numbers are drawn way more frequently than others, while some aren’t drawn at all. In Powerball, a lot of numbers have never been drawn together with the Powerball. It goes through statistical information like that."
