No, but after learning the ins and outs of the Pick3 in New York:

You can make an educated GUESS!

Cash 3 Facts
============
Cash 3 uses number from 0 to 9 (10 digits) and has a possible of 1,000
combinations.

These numbers can be combined as follows
Combo Type       Sample #s   Occurrences
-----------------------------------------------
3 single digits   123        71%
Double digits       112        27%
Triple digits       111         1.37%

The above numbers are facts not conjecture, guessing, Dream books,
tic-tac-toe or anything else that is not based upon Factual draws.

So from looking at the combination percentages you should readily see
that there are certain combinations that you should totally avoid.

That means NO Triples! Eliminating these combos represent a total of
1.37%!

So concentrate on the more frequent combos... 98.63%: Single or double
digit combinations!

This also means that if your lottery has not had a double digit number
in 5 or more draws you should lean heavily in that direction.

Raven62, thanks for replying. I read somewhere else that you can guess 2 out of 3 most of the time, and that is why i'm asking if we used a similar method we'd be able to guess 1 out of 3 most of the time also.

thanks,

Al

The ideal situation would be: Combine the two systems together and guess 3 out of 3 most of the time.

...it's no good, that keno "guy" just doesn't want to give up the secret.

>I read somewhere else that you can guess 2 out of 3 most of the time

What you read in the various 2 out of 3 threads does not involve guessing - it is a fact.  As long as a double or triple does not come up, there are combinations of 3 digits that will get you a minimum of 2 out of 3.  Pick any 6-way pick3 number and then you will see that there will be a match for at least 2 of 3 within the 8 combination listed.

No one wants 1 out of 3, unless someone who's dying to looooooose....

3 out of 3: use these digits, 0123456789 and create every possible combination. Sure hit.

Have a system where you just pick one number for play.
It is just a matter of wether it is correct or not and how long it may take to come out.
Not hard to do..

It has come up before and there are 220 box combinations that guarantees a box hit every time and 18 combinations to cover 2 of 3 if the winning number is not a double or a triple and only four combinations are needed to cover all 10 numbers.
