Having hopefully dispelled the notion or myth that a particular history has some influence on the next draw of any Lotto game does not mean we can't use the immediate past history to do interesting things. One thing you need is a method for describing the history and it is quite common in probability books to use Hit/Miss strings. I first introduced this way of looking at the history on another forum in relation to PowerBall numbers - no one seemed to have heard of it and I haven't seen it mentioned since then. 

Here is a table showing some of the more common signatures (only 63) over 20 draws with a short term occurrence limit of 10 and long term of 20, which are applicable for each number. Not as simple as you thought, eh! So for a 6/49 Lotto game you would need to realistically consider over 3,000 signatures not to mention the myriad ways you can put them together for 49 integers as repetition is allowed.

A shorthand way of showing MHMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM is MH18M.

In the table below the more common possible Signatures are shown for each integer for 20 draws in a Pick 6, Pool 49 Lotto game. The row with integers 1 to 20 in the columns represents the draws. Looking at the first Signature the last draw in column 1 shows M and the previous 19 draws all have M so this represents a Signature that can be applied to any of the 49 integers of non-occurrence for 20 draws.

Looking at the last row we see an integer's occurrence for the last 20 draws can be described with no occurrence in the last 8 draws, prior to that 2 consecutive hits preceded by 10 draws with no occurrence.

Look at my other posts on signatures and for a more sophisticated and encompassing approach look at ANALYSIS OF LOTTO DRAW HISTORY - THE FINAL WORD.



Lotto Draws have no relationship to one another; the integers serve just as identifiers. Any prediction calculation on one history of draws for a same type game is just as irrelevant as another.
