Hit Sequence Graph

Top  Previous  Next


The Hit Sequence graph displays information from the Hit Sequence chart in bar graph format.


To view the Hit Sequence graph, click on the Statistics button or the Statistics menu and select Hit Sequence Chart/Graph. Click on the Hit Sequence Graph button on the toolbar.





The Hit Sequence graph 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 axis of the graph represents the numbers drawn in the lottery, with 15 numbers being shown at a time.


When you first open the graph, information for numbers 1 to 15 is displayed. To view information for numbers higher than 15, click on the Higher Numbers button on the toolbar. To view lower numbers, click on the Lower Numbers button on the toolbar.


The vertical axis has different color bars representing hit categories (1 to 25). A legend to the right of the graph associates each color with a hit category.


If a number has a vertical bar for the Hit 1 category, it indicates that the number was drawn in the last drawing. If a number has a bar indicating the Hit 2 category, the number was drawn two drawings ago. All regular numbers have a value of 2.


If the lottery that you opened has a bonus number, any bonus numbers will have a value of 1. Bonus numbers will only appear in the graph if you have selected the option to include bonus numbers with regular numbers in the Hit Sequence chart.


The Hit Sequence graph 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 graph 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.


Click on the Print Preview button on the toolbar to view how the graph will appear before it is printed. You can also change the page orientation, margins and graph detail.


Click on the Print button on the toolbar to print the graph. If you have a color printer, the graph will print in color.


Click on the Copy to Clipboard button to copy the graph to the Windows clipboard. The graph can then be pasted into any graphics program, using the Paste command in the graphics program.


Click on the Return to Skip and Hit Chart button on the toolbar to view the Skip and Hit chart.


Tip: To make the graph larger and easier to read, click on the Maximize button in the upper right hand corner of the graph window.
