Western Canada's pick 3 last night.... 4-4-4

Tonight...

2-2-2

 

What are the odds of getting triples two nights in a row?

We are all Lucky... just some of us don't realize it!

      Unbelievable....!

      The odds aare the same as any other straight 1 in a 1000

      remember the average is every 100 draws, they went missing for 450 draws though, so just making up the average.

      Look here

        Ya, but the odds of triples back to back... sure they all have a 1 in  1000 chance to come out, but back to back...

          On A GIVEN DRAWING, the chance of a triple Pick 3 is one in 100. The chance of a triple that drawing and the next is one in 10,000 (100x100). DIVIDE that by the number of drawings you are considering. In a year with 700 drawings the odds are 7/100 (700/10000) or just over 1 in 20 there is such an event during a given year of drawings. So expect it again roughly 5 presidential terms from now in that particular State, but with all the other States' drawings considered it should happen much sooner.

          There is also the possibility that certain environmental conditions can favor doubles or triples.
