        rcbuckeye,

        "When it changes, whenever I play it will be for the next draw. If I want to play multiple draws it will have to be consecutive draws instead of multiple day draws or multiple night draws."

        That's exactly what Illinois did with Lucky Day Lotto (Pick 5/39). The Pick 3 and 4 playslips have options of Midday, Evening, or Both but the Pick 5 is just as you stated above. Since they added the Mid-day draw $300,000 and $400,000 jackpots are showing up more frequently so I would guess a lot of people are doubling up on their play.

        _________________________-

        Todd,

        Good for you, and proog that the lotteries indeed monitor this board.

        Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

        Lep

        There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

            I JUST WANTED TO ADD A LITTLE SOMETRHING here to this NEWS....FIRST OF ALLL....They are not using APPLES..ORANGES, LEMONS AND GRAPEFRUITS to make their drawings...

             

            They are using BALLS that has  a SEQUENCE OF 0-9 on every set of balls...AND THAT MEANS ITIS ONE PIC 3 GAME AND THATS ALL..it will  have 4 drawings INSTEAD OF 2...BUT IT IS STILL JUST ONE PIC 3 GAME...

            NOW...HOW MANY of you have researched the midday draws and find something only to see it show in the evening..or find something missing in the evening game only to have it show during the midday game...

             

            MY ADVICE TO YOU is RUN ALL 4 DRAWINGS TOGETHER AS ONE GAME...and yes the past data you have will have NO EFFECT on those extra games...THE VERY FIRST DAY they have 4 drawings,,WRITE THEM DOWN AS 4 DRAWINGS...next day...add the other 4...next day add the other 4...

             

            NOW WHEN YOU FIND SOMETHING MISSING you have to play it in all 4 draws...now if you live close to a store you could play what you find missing one game at a time...its possible it could show in the first drawing..and then you wouldnt need to play it in the other 3...unless you think it might repeat...

             

            NOW that is what I would do if I lived in Texas..also...Texas is taking out 8 pretest draws per 2 paying draws...if they use the same drawing pattern...YOU WILL BE DEALING WITH 16 DEAD DRAWS A DAY to 4 paying draws...32 dead draws to 8 paying draws for TWO DAYS...48 DEAD DRAWS to 12  PAYING DRAWS for THREE DAYS....

             

            YOU ARE GOING TO LOSE A WHOLE BUNCH OF STUFF YOU FIND MISSING and THE GRAT STATE OF TEXAS is going to suck as much MONEY out of your pocket as they can!!!!!!!1

              And to add to your point   lotterybraker....

              The current set of Pick3 & Daily 4 Balls Since 6/1/12 ... will be replaced the first week of September, according to the Texas Lottery watchdog site  <snip> ....

              "The Texas Lottery plans to replace the balls and machines 
              in Sept 2013 for Pick3 and Daily4 . This is most likely when they 
              will begin conducting 4 draws per day for Pick3 and Daily 4"

              I plan to reset my databases to start that first week to begin the new tracking.

                Some people see this as a great move, but I don't get it. I don't believe that doubling the amount of drawings is going to increase the amount of players in Texas, if anything I think it's just going to dilute the number of current players spread out over 4 times rather then 2 times a day.

                  Good luck to the people participating in the Pick 3 and Pick 4 games played twice. Illinois has done this feat already.

                      Congratulations Texas Lottery players and good luck.

                      Party

                      Is it really a CONGRATULATIONS for us.  Texas is the only state know that very seldomly sees triples.  Now with two exta draws a day twelve a week  if we are not seeing triples we know that there is some hanky panky going on.  This should mean more triples and quads.  The down fall is that most people are at work during play times for the early morning draws so I'm just saying get those triples and quads the night before for those of you who only play triples and quads.  now instead of $10 a draw you are looking at $40 per day if you are already not ever hitting on them how long will one continue to play them and never get a win. 

                       

                      My starter pair for the week is 44 last seen 8-16 944  Check Texas pick 3 for suggestions on pair info.  Want to mak sure I put the info in the right place...don't need my hand spanked by Todd....lol

                          Players will definitely love this, they will have more chances of winning since there will be more drawings. I just wonder what will happen to the prize if there will be more winners? I hope there will be more players so the prize will not be compromised.
