Littleoldlady, I think we are starting to get somewhere with viability, however, hoping for something hot to continue it's hot streak is not always the best choice. Nor the cold doing the reverse and staying cold. This principle you speak of is possible with v-tracs or just the 0-9 digits. Have you a specific formula or spreadsheet, that sets up the parameters and detailed rules around these high level rules you've listed. Ranking can be a very perceptional evaluation, concluding differently from one to another. Application or the "right way" as someone mention earlier is the key, otherwise, it will not be profitable.

    No way to back test exact order pairs unless you set up rules on when to play them and the third number(s) to go with them.

      Dead_Aim, this is the best solution I've seen yet on this post, after looking at your recorded results on your website for several states over the last couple months. However, It appear to only work best online and mathematically, the most profitable practice would be to play all selections in every possible order, which is about 30 or 60#s a day per game to play.  I can live with that, however, this is not profitable offline from state to state, boxed or straight over the long haul. Although, you have posted statisical past history results on your website, I would like to know the specifics of how you generate numbers from your pencil paper system so that I can go back in past history in any state and verify the result fo myself. Without specifics, I still have nothing to verify through testing.

        It sounds like one is about to start Spaming and getting enough interested individuals involved to go for the big Spam attack.  Luckily most LP Members are too smart for this.  My suggestion is to find the best method for YOU and your individual state because if you are playing local and not online it really doesn't matter what results other states are having.  Good Luck to all and don't get stuck in this trap.

        Again, good luck finding YOUR best profitable pick 3 Strategy.

          If a ticket is 50 cents for STR play, and STR pays $250, to break even you would have to hit one drawing every 500 (1/1000 X 50 cents)... a "profitable" strategy in that situation would have to win MORE THAN 2x as often as Chance. If your back test shows avg. 3 wins STR per 1000 draws then for every $500 spent you'd win $750. When it's pari-mutuel it gets VERY complicated because some numbers (like Pick 4: 1-9-x-x) have lower payouts and if others are using a similar sytem it waters down the prize YOU get.

            Does anyone have a PICK 3 strategy that is PROFITABLE. One that is quantifiable. I can go back several hundred draws in any state's back history and prove the profitablity each time, throught testing the results of the application of the strategy. All it takes is one proven strategy that is PROFITABLE over the long haul. It is very very easy to hit the game, however, becoming profitable, like earning a paycheck for hours worked everyday and looking back at the end of the year at your total earning over the year is another thing. I emphasize, I am only interested in strategies that can withstand longterm testing from state to state of its back history and prove profitability. Otherwise, maybe I should doing else more productive with my time. lol. Thank you

            What you're really asking "Does anyone have a PICK3 strategy that wins more than it cost to play consistently?"  Since States continue to pay winners with 50% of ticket sales, the answer would seem to be obvious but there are those who claim it's possible.  Good luck on finding someone who is willing to share the details of such a system for free in a public forum.

              Winner2Be, wow, I am not sure I understood the spaming explanation nor it's relevance, however,  a winning strategy to begin with would be the minimum requested here in my original post. Speaking in relative terms, the game is the same, 10 #s play randomly in the same 3 positions, meaning the same basic mathematic rules apply. The profitable strategy will prove from state to state that it is mathematically sound. Looking at multiple states gives you a more fine tune calibration resource for setting the parameters you have to a fix set for your own particular state over the long haul. Also, I dont necessarily need the best profitable pick 3 strategy, just ONE that is PROFITABLE.

              Do you have a profitable pick 3 strategy???

                LckyLary, I appreciate your explanation and I understand these stats very well. What I am looking for it a strategy that will hit within the context of the parameters you have listed here. Whether it's tomorrow, over 500 or 1000 draws, It is relative.  Do you have a strategy that will do just that, meet the requirements you just listed?

                  RJoh, "Does anyone have a PICK3 strategy that wins more than it cost to play consistently?"Yes absolutely, this another way to state my original post. I do believe anything is possible. If the lottery post is not the place for me to receive the details of such a system, then can you direct me to where I should go to get the real deal. I would rather be productive in my search.

                    WSN1,

                    I wish I had the answer to your question, I would play the pick3 games more.  There has been those who claimed they had or bought such a system or knew some one with one, but no one has ever proved it.  If you find one, please share it with the rest of the LP members.

                      I do agree with tntea that vtracs work.  I have been tracking numbers for SC and have found that many of the east coast states follow each other.  The numbers that you play may need to be played for several days sometimes, but there have been many mirror hits that have come to SC.  For example, NJ got 089(534) on 1/3 Eve, SC got 543(098) on 1/5 Eve.  TN got 850 (305) on 1/5 Eve, SC got 035(580) on 1/6 Day.  GA got 659(104) on 1/5 Day, SC got 401(956) on 1/7 Eve.   TN received 720 (275) on two consecutive days 1/4 and 1/5 the 720 combo came to NJ as its mirror number (572) on 1/7 Eve the 207 came to SC on 1/10 Eve.

                        OK .... Most folks can't handle the truth. You can even post it in an open forum ....and most won't even realize what they have just seen. It's funny ...really.  LOL  

                         

                                  1.  First,,, sign up for an online play site.  

                                 2. Wait

                                  3  Find a  State that just had 4 doubles in a row.

                                  4. Play all 120 box single numbers...(next draw)

                                   @ .25 each ...or $ 3o.oo 

                                  5. You will make a profit 90% of the time!

                            That's it....  Don't ever say nobody ever gave you nothin'.... cause I just did. $$$ LOL

                         

                              You want to make more? Bet more. You want better odds than 90% ? Take a hike... LOL

                         

                         

                        The only real failure .....is the failure to try.                               

                                                      Luck is a very rare thing....... Odds not so much. 

                                                      Odds never change .....but probability does. 

                                                                                                               Win d

                          Sweetie, I got to be honest, you are combining 3 completely different concepts together, vtracs, followers, and flip side #s. One can use all three together in a multiple of directions and never get a consistent profit. So, I ask what are the successful details. These examples just show relationships not consistent profits. As far as v-tracs and Tntea, I am still looking for the specific detailed application of the vtrac twist that will bring consistent profits or if you know them please share.

                            RJoh, thanks for your most respectable responses and well wishes. The most realistic and promising path toward resolution for me has been on saliu's website.

                              WIN D, YEAH, finally! something I can test and verify. Thank you very very much. I will test and report back to you. It's looks viable.  This is the type of solutions I am looking for. Does anyone else have something on this level to share that is specific and detailed? There is always more than one path that leads to your goal.Smiley
