Any one familair with the DC chart in Ion Saliu Mdiedit-we

for the pick 3 , I would like the same type of chart that will cover the 710 boxed numbers for the pick4

I have a number that has not hit boxed in 6833 days and I think it is in the same as 6904 range as the pick at 99.9 percent for the pick 3

I just made you one for Pick 3 and 4.

The number of games are rounded to the closest whole number.  Ive used his formula and a similar one extensively.  One thing I've noticed is that when any probability gets to its 99.99% mark, it hits extremely soon...relatively speaking of course.  A probability getting to its 99.999% mark is extreeeeemely rare!

For anyone who doesnt know what the Degree of certainty is, heres how the charts are used:

The bet type is listed on the right most column, the odds of any number being drawn, that fit that bet type, are listed to the right in the next column.  All the percentages are listed next.  Below the percentages are the amount of games required to attain each percent.

Say you want to win the Pick 3 straight and your favorite number is 468.  How long must you play your number in order to win?  Well, according to the chart, if you play your number for 693 games, you will have a 50% chance of winning.  Now, it could be that first game, the last game, or any game anywhere in between.  You dont really know which particular game will pull your winner, but the fact is, is that 693 games gives you a 50% chance of success.

If you want a 90% chance of winning on it, then you can plan on playing it for 2301 consecutive games.

These percentages are also the number of games required to see that percentage of all the combinations drawn.  For example, there are 1,000 pick 3 drawings.  If you look at the last 693 games in your state, there should only be about 500 different numbers there.  500 is 50% of the 1,000 combination matrix.

The 99.9% mark for Pick 3 is 6,904 games.  If you have ever taken a look at the history of any states pick 3 (6000+ games), then you know that there is usually one or two numbers that have either never hit or havent hit for 6000 to 8000 games.  These numbers are supposed to be there!  The 99.9% mark is 6904 games.  So what is 99.9% of 1,000 (the total Pick 3 matrix)? The answer is 999, which is why you usually see 1 or 2 numbers out past 6904.

The boxed numbers work the same way.  In Pick 3, a 6-way boxed number (no-match, singles, etc.), has a 50% chance of being drawn within about 115 games.  If you look at the the last 115 games in your state, there should be close to 60 different no-match boxed numbers.

By the way, I just noticed my Pick 3 chart has an error.  The "odds" column should read, from top to bottom, 1000, 333, then 167....not 1000, 167, 333.

Hello again Thoth

I am wondering if you are going all the way to a DC chart of sums of Pick 4 matrix.

Sure is.  You can "DC" any event as long as you know its true probability.  I dont have time to do the chart tonight though.  I'll try to get to it in a few days.

thanks Thoth

I have been keeping pencil and paper checrts of how old the sums of all 36 sums and do not have but three months data , and would like to be able to forcast how often they should hit .

I just recently started playing pick 4 after not playing it for many years .

I thinks the average of the double's should be about 23 as there are 42 percent hits of doubles in pick 4 ,  llet me know if this is close to being correct.

Thoth, Rick, John, et al-

Hey Rick et al,

POINT OF CERTAINTY & SAFETY-

There was this old timer punter who took a liking to me some blue moons back and said he would reveal his short hand but physics based 'Point of Certainty'. Well btiefly, the old fella says take the real odds and multiply by 9 and if the expected happening hadn't occured yet then bet the farm. Ole' Nick says he did well with keno games in Las Vegas. Take your fav number  (odds 4-1)  hasn't hit say in last  35/36 X then start wagering long green; Nick claims outcome never went past 38 plays (barring malfunction or bias machine). He might have grown much older awaiting these 'Point of Certainty' to occur but he swears he hit BIG \$\$\$ at a casino.

I bought him another drink....

The safest place in a casino, in case of a terroist attack, is the keno parlor becuase nothing ever hits there! I just couldn't resist.

Well what do you thinK?

Good Night,

eddessaknight
