I was just checking out some good info on the box combos for root sums and found the following:

1. Root sum 0 on average should draw 1 in every 20 drawings, based on boxed combos. (1 possible combination)

2. Root sum 1 on average should draw 1 in every 16 drawings, based on boxed combos (14 possible combinations)

3. Root sum 2 on average should draw 1 in every 10 drawings, based on boxed combos (24 possible combinations)

4. Root sum 3 on average should draw 1 in every 9 drawings, based on boxed combos (25 possible combinations)

5. Root sum 4 on average should draw 1 in every 10 drawings, based on boxed combos (24 possible combinations)

6. Root sum 5 on average should draw 1 in every 10 drawings, based on boxed combos (24 possible combinations)

7. Root sum 6 on average should draw 1 in every 9 drawings, based on boxed combos (25 possible combinations)

8. Root sum 7 on average should draw 1 in every 10 drawings, based on boxed combos (24 possible combinations)

9. Root sum 8 on average should draw 1 in every 10 drawings, based on boxed combos (24 possible combinations)

10. Root sum 9 on average should draw 1 in every 9 drawings, based on boxed combos (25 possible combinations)

 

Now, would it be a good idea to play these root sums when they become grossly overdue? For instance, if root sum 9 is out say 20 drawings, to start pounding those combinations? Seems like eventually they will hit (although never guaranteed). I have put together some progressions that aren't steep that will allow to play these for a long time. Think this is a bad idea?

Also, do root sums work on Pick-4 as well? I know that BlackApple is a huge proponent of the Root Sum, but I am a little confused as to when to use this strategy. Any advice? Thanks...

      Interesting. I will follow that as well.

      BA - would you say this is a good idea for Pick 4 as well?

      Here is some additional info:

      Root Sum 0 involves 1 triple combo

      Root Sum 1 involves 8 singles and 6 doubles

      Root Sums 2, 4, 5, 7 & 8 involve 13 singles and 11 doubles each

      Root Sums 3, 6 & 9 involve 14 singles, 8 doubles and 3 triples each

        Good stuff.

        Works for Pick4

        Once you get your prime

        3 digits in Pick4 you just

        make up the difference

            I came across the Root Sum Chart for Pick 4 last night.  I tried to "search" for the Pick 3 Root Sum Chart.  You know how that goes. Eek  I actually fell asleep at my computer last night trying to find that chart. Sleep I'm glad someone brought this topic up.

                      Thanks dman!!!

                      You know what?  I really believe that if you use the vtracs and root sums together, you can figure out the best plays for your state(s).

                      Stick with them for a few draws and see what happens. And you don't have to play them all.  Pick a favorite combo if you want.

                        Sherwin - agreed, as I am sure BA agrees too. I think these are two very powerful components to making some money in P3 and P4. I have backtested 8 states already today on my theory of overdue root sums with progressive wagering. Passing with flying colors with very little cash outlay.

                        Once I have popped in all of the states, we can evaluate. Because at some point there will be a very overdue RS somewhere in the U.S. for each drawing period every day. I would suppose.

                        Could be lucrative. Any suggestions/advice welcomed.

                            The root/sum filter on the deflation tool is what I like best..

                            got several hits using it...

                              tntea - are you able to predict number for all states using that tool? And if so, how many combinations are generally played per draw? I think you guys are definitely onto something.
