The odds of any Pick 4 number is 10,000 to 1 no matter how you look at it numerically.

Law of averages however would say that any number should show up straight every 10,000 drawings. In the case Of Quads that would be Once in every 1,000 drawings. In Illinois there hasn't been a Quad pick 4 in 1,000 drawings so I think it may be worth playing all quads for the next 3 months. at 50 cents you would be ahead if any one hits in the next three months.

50 cents X 13 drawins per week X 10 numbers = $65 per week X 12 weeks or $780

 

One win and you are ahead $1720

      You're referring to the mid day game, right?  No quads in almost 1100 draws. And in the entire history of the game (just over 3,600 draws) there has only been a quad drawn once.

          Badger,

          I'm afraid your information is not correct.  In the entire IL history I know of at least three occasions where Quads have fallen.  I think I'll check the website and go through the history and see if any others have fallen.

                        6-29-1994    1111  evening

                        3-27-2000    7777  evening

                        12-6-2003    3333  evening

            well onenumber, that would mean Badger is correct.............you listed only evening numbers...............

            which would mean no quads have fallen in Illinois midday for 1100 draws.

              SandyK,

              Yes, Badger is right about midday, but I was actually referring to his reference about the entire history of the game.  See above.
