Wheel world lottery
This latest release now has better formatting of long numbers, allows the user to specify the maximum number of losing combinations that are reported (“-l” option: default 10), when to cut off progress reports (“-c” option: default 30 seconds) and also supports lotteries containing up to 54 balls. Compiles OK on UNIX systems.
PC users only:
If your C compiler doesn’t have support for getopt(), the source code to it (taken from GNU gzip) is available as getopt.c, getopt.h and tailor.h. I have included the GNU licence here as well.
verify.zip Version 1.20 (16th August 1996)
67K zip file for PC’s containing source code, both data files, DOS4GW executable (386 or above required) and docs. Requires WinZip or PKUNZIP to unpack of course, plus DOS4GW.EXE in your PATH.
verify.bin Version 1.20 (13th August 1996)
HP UNIX (HP-UX) Series 700 executable. No, I won’t be compiling it for other UNIX platforms – the source should build fine !

Note that there is now a tie-breaker rule:
If two or more wheels equal the record (i.e. use the same number of tickets to guarantee a 2-match or a 3-match), the one that will be used will be the one that covers the most number of 2-match or 3-match combinations (the verifier program outputs that figure so it can be confirmed).
If you beat the record, then please e-mail your wheel file (i.e. your equivalent of wheel163.txt or wheel19.txt) to me and, if verified, you will become the new record holder ! Note that whoever holds the current record will not only get credit here, but their wheel will be used as the basis of the “at least 1 three-match” option or “at least 1 two-match” option of the Lottery Perms page.
Of course, if someone has written software to actually generate an optimal wheel, then I’d be very interested indeed (it’s a bit too complex for me to easily work out – has anyone got the theory behind the optimal solution for this problem ?).Wheel world lottery This latest release now has better formatting of long numbers, allows the user to specify the maximum number of losing combinations that are reported (“-l” option: default
Your gateway to the lottery world
Quick Cover Test (QCT)
QCT is a free, simple and very fast 64-bit program to check the coverage lotto systems ( wheeling systems ).
It is completely free and available to everyone for checking very large lottery systems that until no w are not able to be verified by similar programs. Supports system check up to 90 numbers.
Conventional notation for lottery systems are ( V, K , T , M ) = B, where:
V – indicates how many of numbers are in the system ( Numbers)
K – how many numbers in one combination ( Pick)
T – what system guarantees ( Guarantee)
M – how many numbers you must to hit in order to realize the guarantee ( Conditions)
B – number of rows in the system ( Combinations)
The procedure for checking the coverage of the system is very simple:
- You need to load the system (click on Open ) , the system must be in one of the supported formats
- Start checking system (click on Check )
- Very soon you will get the checking result
In the picture below shows the steps when checking system C ( 50,7,4,6) = 1996 combinations
QCT has completed checking this system in about 7 seconds .
The duration of the test system is strongly dependent on several parameters, which are mainly linked to the type of system.
Testing speed depends on
- The number of combinations in the system, and
- The size of the coverage of the system (this term will be explained later)
- The speed of your computer
The figure below illustrates the time dependence of system checks the number of combinations of size and coverage for the system C (90,6,4,6) = 51 407 combinations
QCT will be much faster to complete verification coverage system C (90,6,4,5) than C (90,6,4,6).
QCT checking C (90,6,4,5) = 95 786 combinations completed in about 11 seconds
while checking C (90,6,4,6) = 51 407 combinations can last up to 5 minutes
A key reason is the size of the coverage This would need to perform checks for each combination system. To illustrate Size coverage for C (90,6,4,6) is 52795 and the size of the coverage of C (90,6,4,5) is 1266
QCT for C (90,6,4,6) do 51 407 X 52 795 = 271 4032 565, means over 271 million operations,
for C (90,6,4,5) do X 95 786 1 266 1 265 076 = 12, ie about 12 million operations.
QCT is a program that is able to do the verification of coverage and thus extreme cases systems.
SUPPORTED FILE TYPES OF LOTTERY SYSTEMS
QCT can be loaded and test a large number of well-known formats, lottery system .
- Lotto system file is primarily QCT
- Belic’s file system format records lottery system that uses Rade Belic
- Boltin’s file system format that uses Ininuga – a public program to optimize the lottery system author Uros Boltina
- Binary, Packed, Index distance and index dinstance Zipped file system formats that are internal QCT used for better packaging lottery system to the backup takes the smallest space or to during the exchange of e-mail sent hundreds of smaller files.
Lotto system files is of the form
Belic’s system files have next form
Boltin’s system files have the next form
Skip first number (index): NO

The figure below illustrates the differences in the size of the file saved in from many different formats supported by QCT, size of the data in bytes.
An example of the image refers to a system C (90,5,4,5) = 210 543 combinations
FILE FORMAT CONVERSION
QCT can be used to convert lottery systems from one to another format, pictures below ilustates the procedure
and QCT has loaded the file, now we can save system in another format
