This function allows you to define the parameters to be used in the analysis. Configuring the parameters is only possible in the Pro Edition.
We recommend that you use the default parameters as these values are automatically set by magayo Lotto based on the rules of each game and the number of draws in the database.
Under the "Parameters" tab, select the number of draws to be used as the time bucket in the Short Term analysis.
The recommended time bucket is set as the default value. If there are insufficient draw results in the database, a constrained time bucket will be used as there are not enough historical draws for magayo Lotto to iterate and identify the trends.
The time bucket is set to "10" in the Free Version.
As explained in the earlier section, if the time bucket is 10 draws, it does not imply that magayo Lotto only uses the last 10 draws in the analysis because magayo Lotto will iterate many times into the history of the game.
As the time bucket is dependent on the ball range and number of balls drawn, the time bucket used for analyzing the Main Balls and the time bucket for the Bonus Balls may be different. Typically, the time bucket for the Bonus Balls is much longer in most games.
You can also select the number of balls to be used in each group for analyzing groups of Main Balls and Bonus Balls. The recommended grouping is shown and also selected as the default.
You can further select the date for the analysis to end if you would like to test the analysis and then compare your analysis against the actual drawn numbers. The default date is the current date. This implies that the analysis will end on the most recent draw in the database.
By changing the analysis end date to be earlier than an existing draw in the database, you can test and compare the results of the analysis against the actual numbers drawn in the very next draw after the analysis end date.
For games with the same set of Main Balls and Bonus Balls, you can select the "Analyze Main and Bonus Balls together" checkbox. If this checkbox is not selected, magayo Lotto will only analyze the Main Balls drawn.
If you would like magayo Lotto to recommend less balls, you can select the "Recommend less balls" checkbox.
Click the "Analyze" button to proceed with the analysis.
Should you need to change the parameters and analyze again, it is necessary to exit from the "Analyze & Recommend" window first. This is a conscious design as we do not encourage you to continuously analyze using different parameters. By doing so, you will likely be overwhelmed by all the data, become confused and have difficulty deciding on which balls to include in, or eliminate from, your pool of play.
We recommend that you decide on your parameters first, analyze once and then proceed to play your selected pool of balls.
Once the analysis is completed, you can view the analysis under the different tabs.
