When developing the Expert Lotto software we reused our experience with expert systems for complex industrial solutions, mainly from nuclear power plant field. Our target is not to provide a black box which recommends "guaranteed" but not reproducible numbers and tips. Expert Lotto is targeted as a multi-purpose tool helping you to get the most out of your own lottery strategy. With Expert Lotto you can also analyze historical winning numbers, look for repeating patterns, improve your understanding of the lottery and increase your chances to win.
A picture is worth thousand words...
There are many video tutorials which provide detailed step-by-step instructions how to use Expert Lotto - setup a new lottery, load or create a wheel, analyze past winning numbers etc. You can watch them here.
Some more video tutorials are listed here.
Expert Lotto offers a very powerful and unique tool to analyze past winning numbers. The winning numbers database is presented as a series of chart lines. If you manage to estimate correctly the trend of these lines (the line will ascend/descend in the next draw) you can use Expert Lotto functions to get a reasonably small set of combinations (tens to hundreds of combinations depending on the accuracy of your estimate), which is guaranteed to include the Jackpot winning numbers! This procedure is reproducible. Read here for more details.
Jackpot lotteries which draw all winning numbers from the same pool, optionally an extra bonus number(s) can be drawn also from the same pool.
Powerball lotteries which draw main winning numbers from one pool and one or more bonus numbers come from different pool(s).
Keno lotteries where all winning numbers come from the same pool, however less numbers are marked on paper playslips.
Pick 3, Pick 4, Pick N lotteries which draw each number from a separate pool.
The application is distributed with a long list of pre-defined lotteries and there's also a wizard to create a custom lottery of any type with just a few mouse clicks.

If you play for example a 6/49 lottery you can create a full wheel of all 14 million of combinations in just a few seconds. If you play 10/80 Keno lottery you can even create all 1,646,492,110,120 possible combinations - if you have 16TB of free disk space such a huge wheel requires.
Expert Lotto also shows the statistical properties of past winning numbers as line charts where it is easy to estimate how the properties will change in the coming draw.

The goal of all lottery strategies is the prediction of winning numbers that will hit in the next draw. Lottery players in most cases search for the most frequent or the least frequent numbers, then examine the latest winning numbers and/or their statistical properties trying to guess what is the most likely to happen in the next draw.
Expert Lotto has built-in tool which automates the prediction process to some extent. The application will search through selected past draws and compare them with the latest winning numbers to predict the numbers and statistical properties (e.g. odd/even numbers ratio, sum of ticket numbers etc). that are expected in the coming draw. As all other Expert Lotto features, the predictions are based on solid math. With the same input data and the same settings the predictor will always provide the same, reproducible results. There is no magical black-box spitting out different numbers each time it is clicked. Expert Lotto predictor is based on pattern matching algorithm which is widely used in many other computer-assisted fields – facial recognition, statistical data analysis, signal processing etc.
You can even build a hierarchy of built-in filters bound with various logical operators to implement even the most complicated lottery strategy. It is possible to share custom filters between different lotteries or with other Expert Lotto users. The application allows back-testing and performance evaluation of custom built filters.

If you have just finished applying all the filters according to your lottery strategy and the resulting set of tickets is too large for your betting budget, then there are two options. Either continue filtering with the risk of making an error in your estimates and filtering out the winning tickets. Or use Optimizer filter to reduce the count of tickets and aim for lower tier prizes.
With this filter you can remove surplus tickets while maintaining the required win guarantee. For example you can filter like this: I want to have 100% guarantee of matching at least 3 winning numbers when I hit any 6 numbers.
Using Optimizer filter you can reduce the wheel size by several orders of magnitude and still have 100% guarantee of winning some of the lower tier prizes.
Even though Expert Lotto has a rich set of features we realize that advanced lottery players have a lot of fresh and interesting ideas which might be difficult to implement in Expert Lotto. That's why it is possible to export any table in any application window to MS Excel's native format and process the past winning numbers or statistical results in MS Excel or any other spreadsheet application.
If you have experience with stock exchange or foreign exchange trading, you can export statistical charts to MetaTrader 4 application and use its vast array of analytical tools to better estimate statistical parameters for the next draw.
You can also export any chart to a PNG or JPEG file.
You can customize the user interface by rearranging the layout of application windows, add or remove buttons to the main window toolbar or drag some application screens to secondary monitor.
There are keyboard shortcuts for all major actions which makes the workflow much smoother. The keyboard shortcuts are fully customizable.
Application updates are delivered automatically online, you don't need to reinstall everything from scratch when a new version of Expert Lotto is released.
The distribution of Expert Lotto includes a long list of pre-defined lotteries which are listed here. If you cannot find your favorite lottery in the list, you can still use Expert Lotto's new lottery wizard and setup a new lottery yourself ins just a few mouse clicks.
