When Pllaying any of the lottery games you have to play the odds.

The (three digit) has the lowest odds of them all .. PLAY THE ODDS.

Remember you never hit the lottery the lottery always hits you.

    Why would the digit 3 have lower odds than any other digit?  Statistically, each digit has a 1-in-10 chance of hitting in each position, each drawing. There is not one digit that has a lower odds of hitting than another.

      3 digit has a 1 in 1000 chance of hitting

      4 digit has a 1 in 10000 chance of hitting

      each digit has a 1 in 10 of showing so therefore the 3 digit factors like this

      10x10x10=1000

      and the foud digit factors like this

      10x10x10x10=10000

        lol, here's "another table with facts"
        I used 33 states only to do the calculations, they are from a few days ago.
        Let's take a look at what digits hit in what positions.

        Combined

         4 26569
         7 26409

         0 26259
         2 26170
         6 26165
         5 26128
         9 26111
         3 26062

        Eventually every digit should fall an equal amount of times. (give or take a few...)
        Coincidence that digit 3 is ranked last...

              AHA ! Okay, that changes things. Sometimes gets confusing on LP with people not using the same terms....Like people saying 345 is a "number"...when it is a combination for the Pick 3, not a number "14" would be a number...or then someone will call "4" a number when it would be clearer if they called it a "digit", etc.
