To view the Hit Sequence chart, click on the Statistics button or the Statistics menu and select Hit Sequence Chart/Graph.
The Hit Sequence chart displays information for the last 25 drawings. If the Drawing Cutoff is set to a value less than 25, the chart will display information for the number of drawings that the cutoff is set to.
The horizontal rows in the chart represent the numbers in the lottery. The number that each row represents is displayed in the first vertical column on the left. Use the vertical scroll bar to view rows that are not visible.
The other vertical columns represent the last 25 drawings and are numbered from 1 to 25, from right to left. The most recent drawing is column 1. The chart should be read from right to left.
A "##" in the chart represents a hit for a regular number. For example, if a "##" appears in column 1, row 1, it indicates that the number 1 was drawn in the last drawing.
If a number appears in a column, it represents how many drawings since the last hit. For example if the number 5 appears in row 2, column 1, it means that the number 2 has not been drawn for 5 drawings.
If you are playing a lottery that has a bonus number, a Bonus Number Options button is displayed on the toolbar.
When you click the Bonus Number Options button, the Bonus Number Options dialog is displayed with three options for bonus numbers. The default setting is to show statistics for the regular numbers only. The second option is to show statistics for regular numbers and bonus numbers. The last option is to show statistics for the bonus number only.
If you select option 2 or 3 in the Bonus Number Options dialog, the chart will display "BB" to indicate a bonus number hit.
The Hit Sequence chart is normally used with the Skip and Hit Chart. From the Skip and Hit chart you can determine that a number has a tendency of skipping a certain number of drawings before hitting again. You can then look at the Hit Sequence chart to see how long it has been since the number last hit. If the skip tendency is equal to the number of drawings since the number last hit, it would be a good number to play.
