This is an assignment for compsci class, lotto 6/49, with no duplicate numbers and stuff. Ignore the first part, with the lines, Im just doing that cause I saw it somewhere else, and wanted to try it, Im prolly gonna do something with that later on. I'll add bmps at school maybe, cause I don't want to transport them. This is the basic program, all drawn lol. I think this is THE biggest program (in terms of lines) I've ever had to work on. And Im trying to use more procedures, also to comment stuff, since I lost marks last time cause of that Sad. Oh yea, its really hard to win, if you win, you can win the real thing Very Happy. oh and if you cheat, the program fails. I made this in about 3 to 3.5 hrs, including dinner Very Happy. Enjoy Very Happy Oh, and you may have click "click here to see results" for a second.
Edit I added some bmp's to decorate it and make it look nicer. and added another bug proof.

Looks pretty good. you need to add some more error proofing in the part where you enter your number. I.E. make it so that you can't enter 'q'. Eh

I really like the aesthetic appeal. good work!

HAHA I love the pics... make them jpg tho... good job man... I think that you should make a little thingy on the side that shows the balls shuffling and them one rolls out and the number pops up on it... or it all ready on it... rotating Smile look into the Pic.Rotate command and have some fun Smile

aesthetics -----> how it appeals to the senses
eg. A chair's black leather looks nice Smile
ergonomics ---> how it preforms its duty
eg. a chair's back support

so

Theres no point to that, if you win here, you could win the real lottory, I haven't even got more than 3 matches yet.

but think of it this way, since ur not winning, the probability of u winning nxt time would be greater and will increase until one day u do win... or you could think of it as if u do win on here, you've wasted a real shot at winning the real lottery instead of this cheapy fake one

Let's shed some light on lotto 649.

(49*48*47*46*45*44)/(6*5*4*3*2*1)

That works out to be 1 in 13 983 816.
let's round that to 1 in 14 million Eh
So the chance of winning paul's program should be 1 in 14 million if he did it right. If you DO win his program, then the chance of winning the REAL lotto 6/49 is STILL 1 in 14 million.
take a die. you're try to get a 6. You roll it and you get a 6. The chance of that was 1 in 6. You roll it again and get another 6. The chance of getting that second 6 regardless of the first roll is still 1 in 6. However, the chance of getting 2 6s is 1 in 36. So winning the lottery twice in a row is 1 in 195 547 109 921 856. AKA 1 in 195.5 trillion Razz
