i looked back and know georgia had 2222 hit twice the first year the cash 4 started their in the late 90's but that is strange that SC has been running three years without a quad....i'd start betting them they are WAY OVERDUE.
I wouldn't think SC Pk 4 Evening is all that overdue. There have only been about 897 draws since the game started. That isn't all that long for a quad to be missing.
As one example of what I'm talking about, look at IL Pk 4 Evening. The game has had 7,819 plus draws and there has been a quad only 5 times in all that time. The most a quad has skipped in that game (skips between quads) is 2,613 draws. It averages a quad hitting every 1,564 draws ! Mind you that's a game that has had over 7800 draws !
Remember that while in Pick 3 triples will average hitting every 90 days, approximately, when you add that fourth digit and make the game Pick 4, you are dealing with a LOT more combinations that can fall in the game. So the quads (ten possible) are a whole lot smaller percentage of the entire possible number of combinations that can hit in the Pick 4.
This isn't to say that a quad couldn't drop tomorrow in SC....but it could just as likely go another year before it hits. I know that a quad (like a triple) is the easiest way to get a straight, but I really think when it comes to hitting a quad, it's entirely going to be luck.
