Thanks, I think I can use this to help extrapolate my estimate. I also think I will add a SC range filter

I can calculate the odds for each S/C value. I feel that I am not adequately explaining what I am trying to do.

I am trying to offset the odds using my average hit rate as a starting point to calculate an estimate for being

able to hit all the values. This is kind of quasi-math guess at best but since my baseline hits are far above the

expected, I would feel comfortable as long as I know I am not missing something in my calculations. I am not

a mathematician so I can stray o... [ More ]]]>

Based on my test play where the average hit rate is 9 of 12 step values, is it possible that

I can calculate my odds for hitting all 12 by calculating the odds for hitting 3 of 3 steps. In

my test play I managed 3 attempts with 11 out of 12. The other games ranged 8 to 10

the overall average was 9 of 12.

Most of my misses are step-1 values which are always 1 in 3. It seems logical that I could

get a good estimate by calculating the odds for hitting 3 or 4 step-1 values.]]>

The way the digits are distributed in the groups has no bearing other than that's the way the codes

are developed.

Step-1 has 3 choices.

If set to 1 then we are limited to the digits in group 1 or digits (0-1-2)

If set to 2 then we are limited to the digits in group 2 or digits (3-4-5-6)

If set to 3 then we are limited to the digits in group 3 or digits (7-8-9)

Step-2 has 2 choices 1 = play odd and 2=play even

Step 2: Group 1 50%, Group 2 50%

Step 3: Group 1 60%, Group 2 40%

The percent probability of one group changing to any other is as follows:

Step 1: Group 1 70%, Group 2 60%, Group 3 70%

Step 2: Group 1 50%, Group 2 50%

Step 3: Group 1 40%, Group 2 60]]>

We just wanted you to confirm.

Step 2: Group 1 {1, 3, 5, 7, 9}, Group 2 {0, 2, 4, 6, 8}

In step-1 we have 3 choices. Group-1 = (0,1,2) Group-2 = (3,4,5,6) and Group-3 = (7,8,9)

Thanks for the info. What I am doing now is this. Using my steps program and my S/C chart for analysis

I pick one digit for each of the four positions. I never know which digits are correct until after the drawing

but I have a very high hit rate for at least two of my selections showing in the correct spot. There are 6

positional pairs in a 4 digit line. AB, AC, AD, BC, BD and CD. It takes 486 lines to cover my 4 digit selections

I seem to doing that quite a bit since I started messing around with the daily games.

With the number games, I know what I am doing but the daily games require both

combinations and permutations. I need to think about things more before jumping

in. I am starting to get the feel but still got a ways to go.

Playing large is a option as my 2 positional digit hits are better than 1 to 1 per play overall. To cover

a 6-way p-4 pair bet require 486 lines. MO pays $6K for a $1.00 P-4 str8, the only downside is filling

out 486 boards every day or twice a day if mid and evening games are played.

I did mention straights only just above the odds questions. I am new to the daily games and as such a bit

behind in my math for these games. When I first considered the odds I made estimates without working

them out, turns out, my estimates were way off. I built a program and was surprised to see that the odds

for matching 3 positional digits in a pick-4 game was only 1 in 276.87. Before this I thought I was really doing

I built a calculator to get my values and the way it works is to first calculate the number of lines

needed to cover the number of matches then it divides, 10,000/36=277.778. In your post above

your odds for a matching-3 positional digits is listed as 1 in 276.778. I figured it was just a typo.

I don't understand the calculation for matching 0 digits as I get 10,000/6,561 = 1 in 1.524.

My calculations to cover each match from 0 to 4

0 = 6,561

1 = 2916

2 = 486

It could have been written 2 : 1.04, or 2 successes for approximately 1.04 failures.]]>

It means for every 1 possible success there are 9999 possible failures.]]>

If p is the probability of success, then the odds become 1 : (1 / p) - 1]]>

Bingo. In another post I started playing and posting a few pick-4 games and my hit rates for

2 positional digits were very high and along the way I also had a few lines with 3 positional

digits. I was sure that I was close to hitting a straight which led me to work out the odds.

Turns out that a 3 digit positional hit is way, way and I do mean way far away from a 4 of 4.

The first is almost as straightforward as what you did, but you missed one detail. For getting at least 1 of the 4 numbers right you've got a 1 in 10 chance for each of the 4 positions, so 4 * 10% = 40%. To get only 1 of 4 correct you have to get the other 3 wrong. That means you need to multiply the probability of getting at least 1 right by the probability of getting 3 of them wrong. That makes it .4 * .9^3 = .2916, or 29.16%. 1 in 3.43

To evaluate my system I needed to know the odds for hitting 3 correct positional digits out of 4. The

odds for a pick-4 straight are 1 in 10K. My first thought was that I could expect to hit 3 positional out

of 4 around 1 in 1000 plays.

The odds for hitting a pick-3 straight are 1 in 1000, so the odds for hitting 3 of 4 in a pick-4 should be less than 1 in 1000.

If you have 1 position and 3 digits then the odds of getting 3 right might be 3/10 or 0.3

If you have 1 position you can't get 3 digits right on it.

Forget about this also:

if you have 2 positions and 3 digits to get right maybe 0.3 X 2 = 0.6 as you now have 2 positions and that might be you double the chances (?).:

Forget about that whole post it is probably all wrong]]>

If you want the digit right on any-one of the 4 positions 1 time or more times as chance might have it, but at least 1 time then maybe 4/10 or 0.4

2 Digits right on 2 particular straight positions maybe (1/10) / 2 = 0.05

3 Digits right on 3 particular straight]]>

But because you want all 3 digits right on ANY 4 positions (Boxed?) at the same time maybe:

0.4 /3 = 0.13333333333333333 to infinity for all 3 digits on the 4 positions maybe any-order or box, but I am not sure.]]>

if you have 2 positions and 3 digits to get right maybe 0.3 X 2 = 0.6 as you now have 2 positions and that might be you double the chances (?).
