Pick 3 Root Sums Chart

Introduction

Pick 3 games are known by a variety of names, including Cash 3, Play 3, Daily 3, Pick 3, Numbers, Daily Number, Daily Game, DC-3, Pega 3, and La Quotidienne 3, but they are all basically played in the same manner.

The "root sum" of a Pick 3 combination is an extension of the sums principle: an addition of a combination's three digits.  However, unlike a regular sum, if the sum is more than one digit in length, the sum's digits are added — and added again if necessary — until the resulting sum is one digit in length.

For example, the root sum of 123 is 6.  That is calculated by adding the three digits of the combination (1 + 2 + 3).  Since the sum is one digit in length, we can stop right there.

In another example, the root sum of 757 is 1.  That is calculated by adding the three digits of the combination (7 + 5 + 7) to get 19, which is more than one digit in length, so we need to keep going.  We add the 1 + 9, and we get 10, which is still more than one digit in length.  So we add the 1 + 0, and we get 1, which is one digit in length, so we have arrived at the root sum of 1.

Choosing numbers based on root sums is distinctly different from using regular sums because of the even distribution of numbers, unlike regular sums, which form a "bell curve" distribution of numbers.  Root sums analysis tends to make biases more clearly apparent.

Below you can find a listing of all the possible root sums from 0 to 9, first presented with all the straight combinations for each root sum, and then with just the unique box combinations for each root sum.
