Generator Technical Description:
After clicking the Process Image button, the process is as follows.
It loops through each pixel in image and stores total (red+green+blue) values into an arrray.
Then it adds up those values sequentially into an array of 13 array items (ie first 13th portion of total values will be summed up in 1st array item and second 13th portion of total values will be summed up in 2nd array item and so on).
So each array item represent sum total r+g+b values 1/13 portion of the image.
Then digits of pick 3 numbers will be pulled from array item 1,2,3 mod-ed by 10.
Digits of pick 4 numbers will be pulled from array item 4,5,6,7 mod-ed by 10.
Digits of pick 5 numbers from array item 8,9,10,11,12 mod-ed by 10.
Mega Millions numbers from array item 1,2,3,4,5 mod-ed by 70 with 1 added to it. Megaball is from array item 6 mod-ed by 25 with 1 added to it.
Powerball numbers are from array item 7,8,9,10,11 mod-ed by 69 with 1 added to it. Powerball ball is from array item 12 mod-ed by 26 with 1 added to it.
Similarly Canadian Lottery 6/49 and Lotto Max are pulled from the same array items.
For Jackpot games, if a number is the same as another number it'll be incremented by 1 until all numbers in selection are different to make them valid numbers.
Pick 3, 4 and 5 games are displayed as is.
Jackpot game numbers are sorted and displayed.
Random noises are better than random numbers generated by computer. Like Random.org uses atmospheric noises.
Information from an image captured is similar to Random.org in that the lighting change in real life could change and give us a different set of measurement.

I have searched the internet for this, and couldn't find any existing thing that gives you lottery numbers from image/photo.
This might be an original idea, and we all know how rare those come along.

I am quite happy with this tool/page.
Hopefully, people will start using it and it'll catch on.

Someone who knows how to program for the smart-phones could potential make a similar app for the phone (I think that would be great).

I told my uncle about this generator the other day.
And today, he asked me how to use it and used a couple of images from his favorite shows and got some numbers to play.

I have a friend who's from Vietnam (special requested to add Mega 6/45 VietLott (VN)).
So I added 2 more lines on the processed.

If this generator could be considered a product.
It's slogan could be "Let the light choose numbers for you!".
Or in Vietnamese: "Hãy để ánh sáng chọn số cho bạn!". :cool:
