Are overdue root sums a good strategy?

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



I can agree with all the average root sum draw statements except this one.  I don't see this one happening too often.

    lottaloot - yeah, well I guess you would be right...that one is actually 1 every 1,000 draws, isn't it? I think realistically, you would have to take the triples out completely and average based on singles and doubles only (only 210 combinations)?

    Fortunately, my progression doesn't rely on my bad math above, which is a good thing! Cheers

      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...

      UPDATED ODDS...I missed 10 combos for the 1

       

       

      1. Root sum 0 on average should draw 1 in every 1,000 drawings, based on boxed combos. (1 possible combination)

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

        Here is some additional info:

        Root Sum 0 involves 1 triple combo

        Root Sums 1, 2, 4, 5, 7 & 8 involve 13 singles and 11 doubles each

          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.

          Did you get the Update Pick-4 Sum Chart or the one that has errors in it?

            Raven,

            I have the one you posted on Nov. 28th. (Updated SUM Chart (Boxed))Is that the one with errors?

              No, That's the corrected one. All the errors from previous charts were fixed and the sums verified.

                Raven,

                 

                So this would apply to the pick 4 game as well?

                    What is the root sum of 883? 883=19=??

                    It's not listed in the chart I'm using.

                    Confused. What?

                    Thanks in advance!

                      Sherwin,

                      8 + 8 + 3 = 19 = 1 + 9 = 10 = 1 + 0 = 1

                       

                      Root sum = 1

                          You're welcome...that's probably one of the more complicated ones.
