Hi lottery post members I have a question. If a person decides to play a pick four three or mainly pick four number..for example..  5802.

Is there a quick way that a person can compute the total combinations of playing them if they wanted to play all of the combinations straight.

thanks Lottery Post members and good luck

Reflections...there are 24 combinations of a pick 4 with individual digits (e.g. 5802).  You could ask for a .50 "combo" bet and they'd give you one ticket for 12 bucks that covers all those combinations straight.

If you're betting online the cost is less at the quarter stores.

Posted 4/6:  IL Pick 3 midday and evening until they hit:  555, 347 (str8).

This program generates all possible arrangements for example: if the user enters the number 123, the program will display all possible variants 123, 132, 213, 231, 312, 321.
