The filter accepts tickets that have the same pattern of number movement as any of the selected past winning numbers draws. The movement pattern of filtered tickets is calculated by comparing its numbers with the latest winning numbers of selected draws.
The latest three draws in Expert Lotto 6/49 Demo lottery are:
|Draw||Number Movement Pattern|
|2010/28 Sun 2nd||23||29||36||42||44||47||||++++++|
|2010/28 Sun 1st||06||13||14||19||41||42||||+=-+++|
|2010/28 Wed 2nd||02||13||16||17||25||40||||-----+|
When filter settings are Winning Numbers: 3 latest draws then filter accepts for example ticket 1-2-3-4-5-48. When compared with the latest draw 2010/28 Sun 2nd its last number movement pattern is -----+ which does match one of the selected draws (2010/28 Wed 2nd). The filter also accepts for example ticket 24-30-37-43-45-48. All its numbers are greater than numbers in draw 2010/28 Sun 2nd so its movement pattern is ++++++ which matches selected draw 2010/28 Sun 2nd.
Filter rejects for example ticket 22-28-35-41-43-46 because its movement pattern is ------ (comparing with the latest selected draw 2010/28 Sun 2nd) which does not match the pattern of any of the selected past draws.
When filter settings are Winning Numbers: 1 latest draw, then filter accepts only tickets that have all their numbers greater than numbers in draw 2010/28 Sun 2nd. For example ticket 24-30-37-43-45-48.
