Believe it or not I have my old DOS Version 6.10 of LottoPro by MicroMedia Cascade Sierra.
Nice thing about it is that it still works on Windows Vista.
I spent hours on this DOS program trying to beat the Pennsylvania Pick 3 game.
I lost all my notes on how I set the program up.
Trying to recall what I did back in 1989 through 1997. Coming back to me gradually.
I won straight bets with regularity using a system of past draws.
Past draws were 10, 20, 30, 40, 50, and 60.
Each set of draws that the program calculates will produce "stacks" reports.
1. Hot 1
2. Hot 2
3. Hot 3
5. S.D. (Standard Deviation)
So I would have a total of 42 pick 3 combinations. I would NOT play these combinations but see how many times each digit occured in each positions 1 through 3.
The I would wheel the highest 2 to 3 numbers in each position.
So I would end up with 24 to 27 combinations.
Again, I would not play these. I would look at previous days combos and look for re-occuring combinations and play those.
I though it would be interesting to post the Pick 3 combos for Pennsylvania Evening draws for Saturday, July 18, 2008.
Sometimes a straight combination will repeat even though it was drawn in the last few drawings.
The combination 312 actually appeared in the 3 previous calculations.
Lets see what happens Saturday Evening!!
