I only play Texas, so here is my opinion on the Texas drawings. The state considers it 1 game, not two separately. The state uses the same balls and the same machines for the drawings. Also, when receiving a results print-out from the retailer it has the drawings numbered consecutively...not day and night separately. Example: todays drawings are Noon #4867 and tonight #4868. That would appear they consider them 1 game. Tomorrow will be #4869 and #4870. See note below **
Therefore, your best bet is to check out the state you want to play and see how they handle the game(s). Could be that some do it the same way Texas does, and others may not. I don't know, because I only play Texas.
This has been discussed in the past and lots of people here like to keep them separate. I guess it boils down to: anywhichaway, as long as you can get a hit.
Best of luck to you.
**Pick 3 started 10-25-1993. Had only 1 draw per day, until mid day started on 4-29-2002. On 4-27-2002 the night draw was #2664. If they were kept separately, then the drawing today would show the night draw 2664 ahead of the noon draw, but it doesn't.
