I have copied the last 1,000 draws for the Washington state pick three (3) daily game and if my copying and math is correct, I have drawn the following conclusions
In the last 1,000 pick three (3) draws for Washington State there were 368 combinations of numbers which were not drawn
Like 000, 002, 004, 010 and so on
There was 373 combinations of numbers which were drawn only one time
Like 001, 005, 007, 010 and so on
There were 173 combinations of numbers which were drawn 2 times
Like 006, 021, 029 and so on
And 65 combinations numbers which were drawn 3 times
Like 018, 067, 093 and so on
And 17 combinations of numbers which were drawn 4 times
Like 106, 252, 341 and so on
And 3 combinations of numbers which were drawn 5 times
288, 551, and 626
And 1 combination of numbers which were drawn 6 times 224
Which means to me that if my favorite number is 224 and I played it for all one thousand draws, it would have cost me $1,000 and I would have won 6 times for a profit of $2,000,
How-ever if my favorite number is 000 it would have cost me $1,000 with no return, for it was never selected in those 1,000 draws.
All this to say thirty six (36) percent of the numbers in the last 1,000 draws were not selected.
So if I were betting that a number had not been drawn for (lets say) a thousand draws, I might think it is due soon and start betting it, there is a probability it will not be drawn even in 3,000 draws
I am not sure what this means to me for my betting selections.
Should I not bet or should I bet multiples of number combinations.
