Ticket Index Movement

This statistical property shows the relative distance of analyzed ticket from the latest draw (when analyzing Package tickets) or from the previous draw (when analyzing winning numbers draws) in the full list of all possible combinations.

For example in a 6/49 lottery there are 13,983,816 possible combinations starting with number combination 1-2-3-4-5-6 which has ticket index 1, then number combination 1-2-3-4-5-7 which has ticket index 2, up to the last possible combination 44-45-46-47-48-49 which has ticket index 13,983,816.

Ticket index movement than compares the index of the latest draw (or the index of previous draw) with the index of the analyzed ticket. The lowest possible value is 0.0 which means that the analyzed ticket has the same numbers as the latest/previous draw. The highest possible value is 0.999999999. This happens only if the analyzed ticket numbers are 1-2-3-4-5-6 and the latest winning numbers are 44-45-46-47-48-49 or vice versa.

The winning numbers in the latest draw of Expert Lotto 6/49 Demo Lottery are: 23-29-36-42-44-47-[07], the corresponding ticket index is 13,737,320, the winning numbers in the previous draw are 06-13-14-19-41-42-[29] with ticket index of 7,453,915. So the ticket index movement in the latest draw is (13,737,320 - 7,453,915) / 13,983,816 = 0.45 - see Winning Numbers Properties window. That means the latest ticket index 'jumped' almost half of the whole possible range.

The ticket index of number combination 1-2-3-4-5-6 is 1. So when analyzing Package tickets the ticket index movement will show (13,737,320 - 1) / 13,983,816 = 0.98 - see Package Properties window.

Note: the ticket index movement property of Package tickets applies to the latest draw from the selection of past winning numbers made in Options window.
