Technical Issues Discovered

 

From time to time we do find technical issues, because either the website didn't update properly or we didn't input the correct information, as all our of data is input by hand after each drawing.

 

Mathematician William Paul Thurston, once said that mathematics is not really about numbers, equations, computations, or algorithms: It is about understanding.  We know a percentage off by .01% or a date posted incorrectly is not a big deal, but understanding that were always trying to do our best to resolve any issues is a big deal to us. 

Date & Type of Issue Discovered:

Unknown Date 2020:  We believe our first technical issue was that there was a numbering chart error listed for the Powerball lottery discovered on March 1st, 2020 for our Google Doc Spreadsheet prediction chart. The chart had been updated incorrectly listing 96 total draw patterns, not 92 which is the correct number.  We resolved the issue after discovering it and renumbered the chart.

June 22, 2021:  It was discovered that the draw pattern prediction chart for the Euro Millions Lottery had been updated correctly on May 28th, but the Double Low Double Teen draw pattern should have been removed from the Lottery List on that day and the Triple Twenty draw pattern added to the lottery list, based on the prediction chart. We resolved the issue after discovering it 7 drawings later.

June 22, 2021:  It was discovered that the drawing date was entered incorrectly on the Google Doc Spreadsheet on the Draw Order and the Past Draws pages for the Mega Millions lotto probability draw pattern mathematics report on June 18, 2021. It was posted incorrectly as June 22nd, 2021 and the issue was resolved after the next drawing and the dates were updated correctly for June 18th, 2021.

June 22, 2021:  It was discovered that the drawing date was entered incorrectly on the Google Doc Spreadsheet for the Draw Order and the Past Draws page for the Euro Millions lotto probability draw pattern mathematics report on June 18, 2021. It was posted incorrectly as June 22nd, 2021 and the issue was resolved after the next drawing and the dates were updated correctly for June 18th, 2021.

June 24, 2021:  It was discovered on the Google Doc Prediction History Spreadsheet for Powerball, Lotto America and the California Super Lotto, that the total number of predictions had not been properly updated on June 19th, 2021 to reflect 210 total draws instead of the 209 that was listed from the last drawing. The issue was resolved and the totals were corrected to reflect 211 total drawings predicted for each individual game on June 24, 2021. 

 

The prediction statistics for the forum and blog post for the Mega Millions and Euro millions correct predictions that were posted the day before on June 23rd were edited and corrected to reflect the minor change in updated statistics. 

July 28, 2021:  It was discovered on the Google Doc Prediction Statistics History Spreadsheet for the Lucky for Life Lottery that the total number of predicted draws was 36 and that 2 draws were missing from the total amount that should have been 38 past total predicted draws and the issue was corrected.

This particular correction also adjusted the total percentage rate for all 6 games prediction rates from 66.31 to 66.05. 

August 8, 2021:   It was discovered that the date had not been updated for the Lucky for Life Lottery predictions page on August 7th 2021 to reflect the August 8th predictions and the issue was corrected. 

August 24th, 2021:   It was discovered that the incorrect date of August 25th had been posted for the draw pattern prediction for the Powerball drawing taking place on August 23rd, 2021 on both the Generator Page and Prediction Chart and it was NOT counted as a correct prediction.

August 31st, 2021:   It was discovered for a second time in a row since an additional Monday drawings began that the incorrect date of September 1st on both the Generator Page and Prediction Chart had been posted for the draw pattern prediction for the Powerball drawing taking place on August 30th, 2021 and it was NOT counted as a correct prediction.  

September 20th, 2021:   It was discovered that several Draw Patterns were not properly added correctly to the Prediction Charts & Lottery List for the Lucky For Life Lottery and the California Super Lotto, when they were being updated for the Fixed Prediction Format Change that took place on August 3rd, 2021 and the issue was corrected.

October 23rd, 2021:   It was discovered that both Mega Millions and Euro Millions had been posting the wrong prediction terminology results of Overall Correct Predictions, which should have changed and been updated to Current Correct Predictions starting on October 1st, 2021.  The past forum correct prediction results were all updated back to Oct 1st, 2021 to reflect the correct terminology.

The terminology change had occurred on Oct 1st, 2021 (Forum Post Fixed Prediction History Statistics Update) after a full month of correct predictions were made since moving to a FIXED prediction format that began on August 3rd, 2021.

October 24th, 2021:  Our first Selective Numbers Generators Programming update change was completed to both expand our parameter settings in one way and narrow our parameter settings in another.  This first major programming change update allows us more flexibility in properly predicting the correct type of draw pattern to be determined more often, while still allowing us the ability to try to reduce the total number of combinations that we generate for lotto players.

Being consistent at properly determining correct draw pattern predictions to come up next, while at the same time reducing the overall number of combinations that we generate and provide as a special service, is at the heart of our Selective Numbers Generators and continuing to improve upon that will be an ongoing goal in helping more people to win lottery jackpots. 

November 5th, 2021:  Our attempts at creating a temporary trial version of our Selective Numbers Generators, for players that subscribed to our mailing list or joined our Forum was not successful and we had to remove the offer from the website until we can overcome the technical challenges the offer creates for us at this time.  We do hope to bring the offer back in the future. 

November 26th, 2021:  It was discovered that even though the Database files were updated properly on November 23rd, 2021, that the Euro Millions, Lucky for Life and Mega Millions Database Report updates were found missing due to some kind of technical issue and they were re-updated again on November 26th, 2021.  

December, 2021:  It was discovered while moving the entire Database Repository to a new location, so that mobile phones could more easily read the Lotto Probability Draw Pattern Mathematics Reports, that several title naming mistakes were made within the older Google Drive Database version, and they were corrected during the move. 

December 28th, 2021:  It was discovered that the word (All) was mis-spelled (AII) in many locations within the Database Repository Probability Reports on the Legends pages, as well as different font sizing and spacing issues and the issues were all corrected. 

It was also discovered that several (Low) draw patterns for both the Mega Millions and Euro Millions Lotteries had title naming issues and the issues were corrected. 

December 29th, 2021:  It was discovered while automating part of the California Super Lotto Statistics page within the Database Repository, that the total listed for the Double Teen Draw Pattern was 198 past draws, when the correct total is actually 195 past draws, and the issue was corrected.

January 1st, 2022:  It was discovered that our Free Lotto America Number's generator, was generating all of the possible Double Fifty number combinations 50 thru 59, when in fact for this particular lottery it only uses the numbers 50 thru 52 for the double and triple combinations and the issue was quickly corrected.

 

January 6th, 2022:  We were very late in the afternoon in posting our daily correct predictions for the past day, for Saturday January 5th and while creating the post, we discovered that some of the correct predictions post from January 1st thru January 4th had the incorrect year listed still as 2021 and the issues were all corrected. Come on Tinkermen Lotto Report, get it together, you're a numbers website and you can't even get the date right (Ya we hear you) to start off the new year.

January 15th, 2022:  It was discovered that all of our past Forum and Blog Post had been posting an older url link for our current correct predictions statistics history page going back to the middle of December 2021 and the issue was corrected.  The issue effected around 70 of our last statistics history post updates for our correct predictions and we're heartbroken that we didn't catch the issue sooner.  The link is also used on our statistics page to take players who want to see our current prediction statistics.

January 23rd, 2022:  It was discovered that an update from the Draw Order page had not been updated on the Past Draw page for the Lucky for Life lotto probability report for a Nov 2021 Triple Low Draw pattern and the issue was corrected.

February 8th, 2022:  It was discovered that duplicate entries had been posted within the Database for the Euro Millions lottery, within the Double Low Double Thirty, Double Low Double Forty and the Triple Forty Draw Patterns and the issues were corrected, and the statistics and Draw Order pages was adjusted accordingly.

March 19th, 2022:  It was discovered that even though four additional Draw Pattern Predictions had been added to the Mega Millions Lottery beginning on February 15th, 2022, increasing the number of predictions from 14 to 18 draw patterns. The increase had not been being updated on the Forum Correct Predictions Post for the Mega Millions Lottery and all of the past post were corrected to reflect the increase to 18.

 

March 20th, 2022:  It was discovered that a correct prediction post for March 18th, 2022, indicated that the next draw for Lucky for Life was due on March 22nd, not March 19th, like it should have been noted and the issue was corrected.

March 21st, 2022:  It was discovered that the incorrect date of March 23rd, 2022, had been posted for the next draw pattern prediction for the Powerball drawing taking place on March 21st, 2022 on the Lottery List Page and the issue was corrected.

April 2nd, 2022:  It was discovered that the Host Service company that provides the Tinkermen Lotto Report its online service for hosting our Free & Selective Number Generators, had turned off that part of the account service due to the auto payment system to them had not been properly setup and the bill was past due Ops! The bill was quickly paid and service was resumed by the end of the day.

April 10th, 2022:  It was discovered that the Correct Prediction Statistics for Lotto America was off by 1 prediction, effecting our posted total, which should have been 89.15% and the issue was corrected.

April 17th, 2022:  Correct Prediction results by the Tinkermen Lotto Report for Powerball, Lotto America, Lucky for Life and the California Super Lotto for Saturday April 16th were delayed and not posted until 10pm the next evening on April 17th, even though Prediction Results are normally posted the very next morning.  We apologize for the delay.

April 23rd, 2022:  On Saturday April 23rd 2022 the Tinkermen Lotto Report began to make several significant computer & platform format upgrade changes on our website which included:

Upgrading from Microsoft 10 to Microsoft 11, that gives us better control options for formatting our Lotto Probability Excel Database Spreadsheet Reports.

We then began moving our Draw Pattern Prediction Charts from our Google Sheets Account to now include those charts within our Lotto Probability Database Reports, and then we started removing those same charts from our daily prediction lottery list.  Then we linked those charts on our Lottery List Predictions to our Free online Lotto Probability Reports within the database.

Due to these particular changes, we will now STOP posting our daily correct predictions within our Forum & Blog post, as our Draw Pattern Predictions are now static & never change, but we'll continue to update our overall Statistics Pages for our correct predictions every day.

Overall updates on our website will take several days to complete as we continue to “Aim for You to Win”

If you find something that needs corrected, or if you see something that you think needs changed, please send us a message @ tinkermenfourm@tinkermenlottoreport.com
