If you use Smart Luck lottery strategy software for this game, the same Advantage Gold program will work for this game. All you have to do is download the new history file. The file still includes the history for the old format, but once there is enough history with the new format, we will lock the game range to exclude the old drawings (which you can choose to use or not yourself). The old game file will no longer be updated.
Similarly, the same pick-5 wheels will still work for this game.
