Did anyone else notice this:

  12/16/05  509

  12/17/05  509

  12/18/05  509

WinD, or anybody else, what are the odds on this happening?

    The odds are 1 in 1000^3, which equals 1,000,000,000 (One in a Billion) for that particular combination to be drawn three times in a row. 

    However, if you were to consider all of the possible outcomes for three consecutive games, then there would be exactly 1,000,000,000 possibilities with 1000 of those being every straight Pick 3 number being drawn three times in a row.

    The overall probabiliity to see the actual event of the same Pick 3 number being drawn for three games in a row would be: 1000^3/1000, which equals 1 in 1,000,000.

    ....It's just like the triples, the odds to see a specific triple is 1 in 1000, the odds to see ANY triple is 10 in 1000 or 1 in 100 reduced.

    I find it funny that it actually occurred.  I was just thinking the other day that with all of the Pick 3 drawnings that have ever been held throughout the country that it was starting to become very probable to happen within the next few years.
