Now I know your "joking" "Pacattacko5" because there are no chosen ones.

    Every time you hit weather it's box or straight, you've made a profit if you spent what the average player spend ($5-$20) but you probably will have a lot more times of losing $5-$20.  Making a profit continually over time playing the pick3 lottery is the kind of story that makes a good urban legend.  I've read posts by players who knew of someone else who did it but I've never seen a post by anyone who actually did it themselves.  If such a system existed, the pick3 games would have been out of business years ago, but most states report it as one of their best money makers along with scratch off tickets.

    RJOh, Well said as always. Cheers

            I think it can be done, but after 7 years of trying I am not ahead in the game. 

            According to the prediction pages that tabulate results no one has shown a consistent profit in the game.  That does not mean it can't be done.

            The forum prediction posts are not tabulated and one can always claim a win after the fact.  I can win every day if I substitute vector numbers, add one/ subtract one, 4=7, 2=5, flip flop the 6's and 9's, etc.......but how many picks can you afford to cover?  If you can afford to bet $50 a draw, then more power to you...but you have to average a box hit in every draw to make a profit.

            There is only one winning combo per draw....every other combo you play is a loser and subtracts from any possible profits.

            Just my opinion.

            Posted 4/6:  IL Pick 3 midday and evening until they hit:  555, 347 (str8).

              Really understanding the "mechanics" of the games helps or should help a lot I think.

              Contrary to popular belief, random is not against the player-gambler not at all, it can be more or less maybe more on your side.

                  From what i've seen all the pick 3/4 players are pretty much losing, the best of them are just losing less than the others.

                  Well......... i'm gonna win and that's all there is to it! :D

                    What does the "D" stand for??? Stangme01. Secondly I do agree with the notion of LP members not winning all the time. Yet,,,, I have to consider that this is a long term learning proccess. Atleast I can say with dignity, When this realm That I'm living in expires,  I gave it a shot.

                      pen and paper.....always same numbers

                      belive it or not i'm ahead

                      three months after the lottery started i bet ten bucks on 486 on july 12,2004 and won 5 thousand.then after that i always threw a couple bucks on these numbers straight.......487,587,478,578,467,567,468,568,548

                      you do the math.......

                      BUT remember that i had that big win without it i might not have been ahead...
