This filter accepts tickets that have selected count of same first or last digits as selected past draws.
Each pool number breaks down into two digits. The first digit is the leading digit of the number, the last digit is the second digit of the number. For example the first digit of number 23 is 2, the last digit of that number is 3. The first digit of number 9 is 0, the last digit of that number is 9.

Filtering with settings Winning Numbers: 5 latest draws, Match last digits min: 6, max: 6 accepts for example ticket 1-2-3-4-6-9 because it has the same last digits as draw 2010/28, Sun 1st (note that the digits don't have to match at the same ticket positions). The same settings accepts also ticket e.g. 1-6-22-24-31-42 because its last digits are the same as in draw 2010/27, Sun 2nd. The filter rejects for example ticket 1-2-3-4-5-6 because none of the selected past draws has the same last digits.
