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 appreciate the detailed explanation, not sure how this will factor out with the MO Pick3 but I've got some data I can experiment with.  Would be neat if the Union Jack method works.

Now if these 10 picks were played each day say (staight box) at a dollar, your looking at 10 bucks a day until it comes in.  Based on this method (and yes I noted you said USE OTHER METHODS NOT JUST THIS ONE), how did you fare dollarwise on paper?

Just curious,

Also: Do you separate midday from evening lotteries?  This can make a major difference in the way the numbers come out.  I've tried it using last weeks MO midday numbers...no winners, but I'll keep looking at it.

Everyone go on vacation?  Figured this thread would get a few more posts.  Well for whatever reason, this method sure seems to have the hits contained within EVERY week thus far.

Does anyone with some EXCEL experience know if you can obtain a sum and then drop the tens place digit in an equation?  This would allow me to develop two equations (one for Regular and one for irregular) that I could plug in the week's base figures and obtain the numbers I'm looking for.

Thanks,

And thank you John(Atomic Dog) for posting this, it really does seem to work.  I had to increase my base to include 7-2 day versus just 5-2, but man the hits are there so far.

THANKS CK!

I appreciate the kind words.  All I can say is RUN WITH IT and WIN!  It sure took months of testing and back checking on various draws, over 3 years worth in 2 states, but it's seems to be good for at least 1 hit a week.

Oh my ..... I wish I were an Excel guru because I would just email everyone with the tailored Excel file fitting this system.  Unfortunately I'm not which even is bad for me!  If anyone is interested in putting this into Excel with the proper formulas, etc send me a message and we'll go from there!

Thanks again!

Is this correct...that after you have established  your first three picks, the base number is dropped and you continue working with the newest three-set numbers as they are configured ? Or is it always putting the latest pick under the base number along with the most two recent draws from your list and working from there to achieve each pick? Thanks in advance...

From the original instructions, you take the weeks last draws (if a 5 Regular week, you take the last 5 draws; if a 2 Irregular week, you take the last 2 draws) and add them together to get the BASE NUMBER.  You then start adding 3 numbers together in the UNION JACK fashion (diagonal/down/diagonal/diagonal/across/diagonal for a REGULAR week and diagonal/across/diagonal/diagonal/down/diagonal for an IRREGULAR week) until you get 10 lines of numbers past your BASE NUMBER.  If this web site could allow fo better illustration, I would post pics to show this better but unfortunately this site does not allow the uploading of pics.

Good Luck,

John

Well I thought I had it all figured out for Texas. I went all they way to the begining of the year. I started with last Friday's draw and came up with 10 picks. Well I was late getting to the store on Monday night and one of my 10 picks hit. UGH!! I had 120 and the pick 3 was 201. I can kick myself in the rear for that one. My problem is I forgot to right down what progression Texas was in. Now I think I have to start all over. Should I just start with the month of June instead of going all the way back to the beginning of the year? Oh how I wish this was put into a program where I can just plug away....

I am doing the Excel work now...as soon as I have the "calculator" finished, I'll be more than willing to share *smile*

Maybe I can explain more too when I get it.  I'll also include formulas for each Base Sum to use (7-2).

Ok I have this Union Jack Calculator done for Excel

Sheet One lets you key in the last 7 draws all the way down to last 2 draws which will give you your base sum (third set of numbers in start of Union Jack formula).  Remember to take the last three digits in the sum...meaning drop the thousands place.

The reason I wasn't able to use a mod statement in the base sum is because after dropping the thousands place, it also drops all zeros until you get a whole number to be a sum (ie: 1007 would drop the 1 and then both zero's leaving you with just 7, 1031 would drop the 1 and zero and leave you with 31)  If I can figure out a better way to get these sums later I will.  All you need to do is plug the last two draws (listed in red) into the top of each formula (Regular and Irregular on sheet two) and then the "#"Base Sum you wish to use (listed in green), the chart will do the rest.

I've separated the ticket lines by black and blue to distinguish the numbers better on each line.  I'd like to get a "listing" of each "ticket" in a single cell, but I'm not sure how to reference three cells into one.  If anyone knows feel free to post it here and I'll try it, but for now, if you'd like a copy of this just message me with an email addy and I'll send it out post haste. I've labeled it UJBSCaTG (meaning Union Jack Base Sum and Ticket Calculator)

I thought we only plug in up to the last 5 draws? I'm confused. Is each base stand for a different progression?
