Does anyone have a system where you select 6 of the possible 10 digits and do a 20 combination draw for a 6-way win?

    Twenty combinations of six digits:

    abc, abd, abe, abf, acd, ace, acf, ade, adf, aef, bcd, bce, bcf, bde, bdf, bef, cde, cdf, cef, def.

    where each letter represents a specfic digit.

    Using this method, though, eliminates all doubles and triples in a Pick 3, 280 possibilities in all.

      As an addendum, there are 120 possible combinations represented in the above numbers. Each combination has six permutations.

      30 doubles are possible.

      aab, aac, aad, aae, aaf, bba, bbc, bbd, bbe, bbf, cca, ccb, ccd, cce, ccf, dda, ddb, ddc, dde, ddf, eea, eeb, eec, eed, eef, ffa, ffb, ffc, ffd, ffe

      Each double offers three permutations for a total of 90 possible combinations.

      Three triples are possible.

      aaa, bbb, ccc, ddd, eee, fff

      There are a total of 216 different possibilities to play six specific numbers in a specific order.

        For non-doubles and triples (replace the digits 1-6 with the digits you wish to play):
        .
        123,124,125,126,134,135,136,145,146,156
        234,235,236,245,246,256,345,346,356,456
        .

          Test and practice at it . 
          Its your game your money. 

           

          Keep track of your low and high digits in the
          numbers drawn.

          Its a guessing game on what you think
          the next drawn number will be on the low and high
          digits as well as what digits to choose.

          If you think the next number will be lhh lean more on
          the high digits in the mix like 2 low and 4 high digits.
          The same applies for llh go 4 low 2 high.

          lll and hhh is obvious and when you run out the 6 digits
          the lll and hhh will appear in the mix of numbers anyhow.

          Mix the digits as you want to choose them.


          I put the low and high digits in order of last drawn.
          If the digits are still in the drawn number I put the
          lowest digit first like the 78

          low__03421

            If you wish to add another filter to your bias
            of the 6 numbers guess what way the numbers will
            go on the even and odds.
            Then lean more on the even or odds in the mix

              As John is correctly pointing out (and may have been your question in the first place!), picking the correct digits to put into the 6-digit wheel is the real trick.  I'm afraid I don't have the answer to that one!

                After thinking about this for a long while, and not just since starting this thread, but after reading a lot of threads here for a couple weeks, I'm about to conclude that this pick 6 of 10 system is about as good as it gets. OR is it?

                That is, for the player who wants to just play a single state as myself.

                Adding a seventh number would create 40 possibilities, and too much to risk.

                Maybe 5 numbers of the 10 is enough to risk with 10 possibilities and a $10 play.

                With 5 numbers, just one win a week is enough to come out ahead by $10. Here, we have pick 3 seven days a week.

                $70 spent in one week, with one 6-way win in that week profits $10.

                Generating combos with 5 numbers may be the best way to go for my budget.

                  wheeling 7 numbers creates 35 numbers, not 40.

                    I agree.  I like the 5-digit wheel the best for the same reasons you gave.  Now ... to determine which 5 digits!!

                    When I use the 5-digit, I like to look at the digits in the order drawn then take every other one.  For instance in OK tonight:

                    So you might want to use 3, 0, 7, 9, 2 as the digits to plug into your 5-digit wheel.

                      Thanks CalifDude.

                       

                      I see you chose every other one from the top down.

                       

                      Just to be contraire,  and based on a graph I'm watching, ( which has dropped to the low end as of the last draw) I'll take the small numbers....

                       

                      0, 1, 2, 3, 4



                      thanks for the correction, paurthe. seven numbers does give 35 possible combos.

                        You have the idea.  Set a "rule" to follow and stick with it.  It won't always work, of course, but if it hits enough to make a profit, that's what most of us are looking for!

                        I have spreadsheets for 5-digit, 6-digit, 7-digit, 8-digit, and 9-digit wheels.  I have the doubles also for through the 8-digit.  But I like the 5-digit or 6-digit wheels the best.

                          yeah, I agree with the rules of play for each individual.

                           

                          I don't have any rules as of yet, but i can sense that low sums medium sums and high sums tend to hang together. Now that I've said that, it will cease to exist! It's nuts.

                           

                          but, nonetheless, I think i will start playing next week with the 5 digit wheel and see if i can get a hit before I get to an $80 deficit.

                           

                          I think i will change numbers daily and see if that is as good as holding the same numbers throughout the week

                            Oh well, I missed it tonight, but the good news is, Califdude made a hit the first time out!

                             

                            I should have stuck with your picks.

                             

                            tonight's winning number was 703

                              Well, I was lucky!  When it comes to using wheels, I wouldn't try messing with sums or high/low or odd/even so much.  Find a pattern that you want to use (maybe the method I used since it proved itself tonight) and stick with it.  When you start introducing other factors, you filter out the winning number!
