Greetings,

I wanted to post this method to get some feedback on the method and some new insights if anyone cares to share.

I call this the Union Jack Pick 3 method.  I'm not sure if it has been utilized before, but I have been testing it for about 4 months now and have back tested it 2 years on the Minnesota Daily 3.  It would be best to use this in picking BOX combos for your Pick 3.  I am posting it now because I have actually gotten to a point of perfecting its behavior.

I call this method the Union Jack method because you utilize a down, criss-cross and across method while adding numbers to get your picks (like the lines on the British flag).  Here's how it works.

1.  Get a weeks worth of draws starting with last Friday's draw.

2.  Line the draws up in order of appearance with the earliest picks on top and the most recent picks on the bottom like this:

06/04 = 3 2 5

06/05 = 2 1 3

06/06 = 0 7 2

06/07 = 5 3 4

06/08 = 0 2 3

06/09 = 9 3 5

06/10 = 1 1 7

3.  This method has a progression in how it works.  The method is as follows:

a. 5 Regular = add last 5 draws to get base, then use down/across method

b. 3 Regular = add last 3 draws to get base, then use down/across method

c. 2 Regular = add last 2 draws to get base, then use down/across method

d. 2 Regular

e. 2 Irregular = add last 2 draws to get base, then use across/down method

f. 2 Regular

g. 2 Irregular

h. 3 Irregular = add last 3 draws to get base, then use across/down method

i. 5 Irregular = add last 5 draws to get base, then use across/down method

j. 2 Irregular

k. 2 Regular

l. 2 Irregular

m. Then back to 5 Regular and through the progression.

So .......... with this being said, and for our example above, we are in the "a" stage of the progression which is 5 Regular.  We will use this method to get our picks for the week.

4.  Ok .... so now since we're in a 5 Regular week, we add the last 5 draws BY COLUMN to get our base number:

06/06 = 0  7  2

06/07 = 5  3  4

06/08 = 0  2  3

06/09 = 9  3  5

06/10 = 1  1  7

6  8  1  (add all five together to get sum, in this example 1681, and then drop the first number to get 3 digit base number).

5.  Now with our base number established, we beginning adding our numbers together (in sets of 3 numbers) to get our picks for the week.  Since our example is a 5 REGULAR week, we add the middle numbers of the last 2 draws to the middle number of the base number to get the second digit of our first pick.  We then add criss-cross over these numbers to get the first and third digit of our first pick.  Here's an example:

06/09 = 9  3  5

06/10 = 1  1  7

Base      6  8  1

2

06/09 = 9  3    5

06/10 = 1  1  7

Base      6  8  1

2  1

06/09 = 9  3  5

06/10 = 1  1    7

Base      6  8  1

2  2  1

So our first pick is 221.  We don't use the base number as a pick.  Our second pick is obtained in a similar way, except that we add across to get our middle digit and then add the last 3 numbers in the criss cross like this:

06/09 = 9  3  5

06/10 = 1  1    7

Base      6  8  1

2    1

5

06/09 = 9  3  5

06/10 = 1  1    7

Base      6  8  1

2  2   1

7   5

06/09 = 9  3  5

06/10 = 1  1  7

Base      6  8  1

2  2   1

7   5  0

So our 2nd pick would be 750.  We continue down the columns into the picks of this progression of alternating down/criss-cross and across/criss-cross until we have 10 picks.  In this example of 5 Regular, down/criss-cross would be used on Picks 1, 3, 5, 7 and 9 while across/criss-cross would be used on Picks 2, 4, 6, 8 and 10.  Here's what our example looks like in completion:

06/09 = 9  3  5

06/10 = 1  1  7

Base      6  8  1

2  2   1

7   5  0

0  5  8

6  3  5

1  3  7

2  1   0

0  7  9

8  6  1

5  4  0

0   9  6

These would be your 10 picks for the week.  If you look at the Minnesota Daily 3 draws for this past week, you'll see the 054 hit (540).  You'll usually get one full hit a week.

5.  So how does 5 Regular differ from 5 Irregular, thus Regular differing from Irregular?  Well, in a Regular week, or Regular progression, we add columns to get our base number then add down/criss-cross on Picks 1, 3, 5, 7 and 9 and across/criss-cross on Picks 2, 4, 6, 8 and 10.  In an Irregular week or progression, we do the exact opposite.  We add columns to get our base number then add across/criss-cross on Picks 1, 3, 5, 7 and 9 and down/criss-cross on Picks 2, 4, 6, 8 and 10.  Thus the difference between Regular and Irregular in the progression.

IMPORTANT RULES:

1.  Use your 10 picks as a reference with other methods.  If you use this method, you'll generally see at least one hit from your list of ten.

2.  When comparing these numbers to others from a different method, add 1 or subtract 1 from the 1st or 3rd column to obtain similarities between the results.  You should never add or subtract 1 to the middle column because those numbers are incredibly static and "true-to-form" so to say.

3.  Once one of the 10 picks has hit for thr week, STOP playing from the list!!!  You usually will get only 1 hit from your list in that week.  If one of the Picks hits on Saturday, your list is generally finished for the week.  Hits from this list usually happen 3 to 5 days into week.

4.  ALWAYS, ALWAYS, ALWAYS use more than one metod to obtain your list of picks.  Never rely on one method, especially this one, to give you results on a daily basis.  Use this method along with others to filter your picks down to manageable number of picks, preferably 5 or fewer.

5.  This method has been known to pick winners straight as is but will generally give BOX winners only.

If you have any questions, please feel free to post them here.  I'll try to help as much as possible.

Good Luck,

John (a.k.a Atomic Dog)

I like this alot. I think you are right that it can be cross referenced with other methods to come up with the closest picks. There are several people in here who might have fun with this. And for me that is the second most important thing. (The money being the first most important thing for me). Thanks for posting this and I hope to give it a try for this evening in GA. -Bonnie

Atlas,

Thanks for the vote of confidence on this system.

I would wait until Saturday morning to gets Friday's pick and then use the system starting with Saturday's draw.  For some reason, and I don't know why, this system goes wild if deviating from a end draw of Friday.  You can give it a shot tonight, but reference it against other methods!

Bonnie ........... you rock!!!

Good Luck,

Ok Atomic, I tried this with the June 4 as a starting point for GA. I have run into the same problem as with my system. For last week using the system. (June 11 to now) there have been 5 out of the 10 combinations with two of the winning numbers. It always seems that it is that 3rd number that wants to be sticky for me. I'm gonna back track it a little though and see what happens. It does seem that most of the time it is the first two digits which are correct. Looking forward to working on this a little more. -Bonnie

I was kinda wondering that myself. Do these letters stand for weeks? Like week one is letter a and week two is letter b and so on. And if that is the case should I go back through my calculations to find out exactly what week GA is on? I mean I used method a this week and I came up with alot of close but no actual hits. Could it be that I need to be on method c or j etc...?

Bonnie!

Great observation!

You've touched on Rule #2 which states:

2.  When comparing these numbers to others from a different method, add 1 or subtract 1 from the 1st or 3rd column to obtain similarities between the results.  You should never add or subtract 1 to the middle column because those numbers are incredibly static and "true-to-form" so to say.

In other words, when using this method, always add or subtract 1 from the First or Last column to obtain your total list of numbers.  With the original list you have 10 numbers.  With the final list, you end up with 50 numbers.  From these 50, you must either increase to a possible 300 if you are doing straight bets or stay put with 50 on the box combos.  Once again, this method is to be used with other methods as a filter ..... a way to pare down your total list to 5 to 10 or so.

Yes, I agree though, like your method, you do run into times when you have to adjust results but it does give good pairs.  Speaking of your method, check out its string for today's workout for Minnesota Daily 3.

Good Luck,

John (a.k.a. Atomic Dog)

Okay I tried the method using the TX midday to midday and I came up with, 337, 531, 390, 326, 310, 545, 249, 656, 575, 972. Today's midday draw was 993. Did I do something wrong?

If I am correct in what atomic was referring to in his reply to me, look at your set of ten. Your 3rd combination was 390. Had you gone down one on the last digit you would have had 399. A box hit. As I stated in my previous post it seems that the pair that is going to fall seems to come in the front. (This was the case with this week in GA using this system.) So I would go up or down one on the last digit or take the reverse of the last digit. Reverse being 0=5, 1=6, 2=7, 3=8, 4=9. Doing this would have given me a hit in GA on Tuesday evening. And like he said once you get your hit for the week STOP! Am I right Atomic? If I could get this paired down to 4 combinations to play for a week. I would combo them all and hit that \$500 once a week and be a totally happy camper. -Bonnie

Bonnie!!

You are the woman!

Yes, you are totally correct.  Sometimes the add or subtract 1 comes in the first column of results.  Here are the results from my research with this method in regards to the Minnesota Daily 3:

The first 2 columns show the date and type of system being used that week, the 3rd column show the type of additions used that week to get a win (i.e. sub 1 first or last means subtract 1 from the numbers in the first or last row to come up with winning combo of 3 numbers) and the last row show the type of win that week (All = both straight and box wins on different sets of picks from that week).

I hope this gives a better idea of how to use this system.

Good Luck,

John (a.k.a. Atomic Dog)

Thanks, but can you explain when I'm supposed to use regular and irregular? I didn't quiet understand the 3a - 3m part, like when is the week regular and when its not and when its 2,5, 3 or so on. Sorry for being a real pain the rear.
