To view the Skip and Hit chart, click on the Statistics button or the Statistics menu and select Skip and Hit Chart/Graph.
The number of drawings used to derive the statistics in the chart is dependent on the setting of the Drawing Cutoff.
The horizontal rows in the chart display the statistics for 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 columns, numbered 0 to 24+, show the Skip and Hit frequency for each number. A number that appears in the 00 column indicates how many times the number (in the far left column) was drawn with no skips (back to back draws) in the last 50 drawings (or whatever value the Drawing Cutoff is set to).
A number in the 01 column represents how many times a number was drawn, skipped a drawing, and was drawn again (1 skip). A number in the 02 column represents how many times a number was drawn, skipped two drawings, and was drawn again (2 skips).
When interpreting the chart, you should look for the highest skip value for a number. The Skip and Hit chart is normally used with the Hit Sequence 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 last hit, it would be a good idea to play that number now.
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.
For example, if you are playing the Powerball game, you could get statistics on just the Powerball by selecting the third option.
