    Actually, people can't use Lottery Post to figure out the answer to that question.  The earliest results in the LP database are from Jan 1, 1997.  Obviously, there are results much older than that, but not in the LP database.

    (An interesting piece of trivia is that right now (as of Oct. 28, 10:54 AM) there are 117,126 Pick 3 drawings in the LP database.)

    Someday I may go through the effort of tracking down and loading entire drawing histories of all the games, but that is an enormous effort that I just don't have the time to do at the moment.

    I would be interested to hear what people come up with as their answer, though!

              Actually Todd the data base is big enough for this purpose.

       When you calculate all states into the equation there is no way for any number to exceed the data base you have provided.

       That would be almost impossible. One individual state may have an old straight or even one that has never hit in their state history but there is no way for this to be common for all states.

            OK Win D. 

            I am pretty sure I am suppose to get what you are talking about.....but I dont. 

            Should it be position specific in the results that you are looking for???

            By that I mean--using the pick 3  1000 combo chart; are you searching for when the 123 hit last as well as the 231in any state or would I be considering only those states that I track?

                    OK.  Trying to use the ole nugget here. 

                    Who can find the oldest straight (3 digit)in the Country? ok...Canada too.

                      What State has the oldest number in the 1000 chart ?

                    Nope.  Too serious a question for me without ANY CAFFIENE in the house. 

                    Sorry...intermission on this one until I have had my caffiene quota.  Sulk Off

                        Big GrinActually the lottery in the America is centuries years old. Number lotteries throughout the world were before there even was an America, according to the history channel and I don't know where they got their information.

                          at first I thought the question was what was the oldest(1st) number drawn in a lottery between the US and Canada. I guess that's what I get for thinking, by the way I believe that number was 810 drawn in New Jersey 5/22/75

                              There are already 2 or 3 people that probably know the answer to this question but I have asked a couple of them to wait and give others a chance. There is another that knows and doesn't realize it. 

                                                     We have all become a bunch of "Box Hunters"

                              By the way.... A consecutive straight is like  ...123 234 345  OK ? Most of the time folks call them the "10 Consecutives" to set them apart from one of the 1000 one way regular numbers. Those have nothing to do with the 1000 number chart question....unless one of them just happens to be one of the 1 in a 1000.

                                      A  straight is 1 of a 1000 numbers on the 1000 number chart and it can only be made in  one way even if it's double, or a Triple.

                            They are all equal. All of them ....regardless. They all hit equally and have an equally good chance at a hit.

                                  The reason why this is more difficult to understand than it should be is ....we have all become a bunch of "Box Brains" 

                                    We have to learn to think outside the Box.   Gross..sorry for the pun.   

                             

                              Hint :

                                There are already 320.89 years of database draws here at your finger tips at LP.... but for this you only need a few weeks of data to get the answer right.  

                                       

                             

                             

                            The only real failure .....is the failure to try.                               

                                                          Luck is a very rare thing....... Odds not so much. 

                                                          Odds never change .....but probability does. 

                                                                                                                   Win d

                              I'm sure I am the one that knows but have no clue that I know...so, on that note, I'll give others a chance, as well.  Jack-in-the-Box
