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.
Pos1 Pos2 Pos3

 Pos1 Digit Times 8 8963 4 8857 5 8786 7 8757 6 8747 0 8738 3 8723 9 8699 2 8695 1 8629

 Pos2 Digit Times 2 8955 8 8886 4 8884 7 8814 6 8763 1 8739 0 8719 9 8686 5 8615 3 8533

 Pos3 Digit Times 1 8917 7 8838 4 8828 3 8806 0 8802 8 8775 5 8727 9 8726 6 8655 2 8520

Combined

 Digit Times 8 26624 4 26569 7 26409 1 26285 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.
