Many years ago I noticed that most groups of numbers would all take turns going away for a time then return.

Some groups hit on average just like clock work.  OK ...maybe a sloppy clock.  LOL   Never the less they do hit on a pretty dependable time frame.

Different groups have different hit rates depending on their size of course ...etc.

The question is this....

Why do most all of the number groups return ....in or around 6 times their normal math average hit rate?

What is it about approaching 6 times over the normal return rate.....that causes these groups to snap back..... no matter how large or small a particular group's average return is?

Sure ....there are many "stinkers" out there going 7,8,or 10 times over their expected hit rate averages but they are certainly the exceptions. Most follow the game plan and do return before they get to their 6 x times average out time.

I still use my 6x magic mark with good success ....... but....  I do not know what the Math is behind that presumption.

Does anyone want to give it a shot? It's really the basis of almost everything I do in my PICK 3 game and yet I still don't understand. I know how .....just don't know why.  LOL

Is it a....... Math or is it a Probability question ?

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, et al-

Thanks for this sharing this discovery-

I know this response doesn't exactly fit your game plan discription but many bluw moons back I discovered that a repeating number (or expected number) in roulette would hit very often by the 4th, 5th or 6th spins after the original occurance.

And also agreed not exactly each and every time but above the expected odds.

Beyond Coincidence???

Hey Win D - How Are Ya?

Heres my take on it.....

Since average skips usually approximate the odds over the long term, then six times the average skip is close to being out six times the odds.  Look at the probabilities of events out at 6 times their odds...then look at the probabilities for events out 7 time their odds.  While the difference in chance seems small, it's enough to make 63 to 65 percent of those six-times-outers hit before making it to 7...and then some maybe. lol

Here's a queston....

If you had deep enough pockets.... and were armed with the fact that NO DOUBLES would hit the next day...... and be right 90% of the time ....do you think you could make a living at the PICK -3 game ?

By the way....

After several years of watching and over hearing several things over time.....  I believe that there is a man in Atlanta actually making a living based on Doubles that he uses in Pick- 3 to make a good wage here. He plays so many numbers each day...the Store actually lets him enter his own tickets!

He is an older man ....  he drives a brand new Mercedes every year and lives in a monster house and owns a lot of real estate around the area. I do know he went to GA Tech many years ago....but that still doesn't mean he couldn't have found a working system anyway. LOL

I may be on the verge of getting to see some of this System pretty soon. I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

Numbers in groups works well. Just a matter of the right group(s) at the right time.

Preferably exact order.

WIN D,

There is a mathematical way to express what you are seeing across these different events. This also relates to two different topics I posted a while back a topic called the Potential Reoccurrence Probability and the Potential Occurrence Probability. Both of these are related, but to show how they are and how this relates to your problem, we'll need to do a little Calculus. The Potential Reoccurrence Probability is the following equation:

y = e -(x / m)

x is the difference between the last draw and the current draw and m is the average rate reoccurrence of these differences. y tells what is the probability that an event will reoccur given its average rate of reoccurrence and the draws since its last event. As the number draws increase without a reoccurrence of the event, there is also another probability that the event will occur. This probability is the measure of the work already done by its potential reoccurrence relative by proportion to its average rate of reoccurrence. Every time an event does not occur, it builds up a potential of occurrence by integrating these values through its draw difference. The basic definite integral looks like this.

y = m-1 [a to b] ò e -(x / m) dx

This then becomes

y = m-1 (-m e -(x / m) ½ [a to b])

The limits of the integral are then a = 0 and b = x. b is equal to x because we are looking for the occurrence for the same draw difference as our original equation. This works out to the following.

y = m-1 (-m e -(x / m) ½ [0 to x])

y = m-1 ((-m e -(x / m)) - (-m e -(0 / m))

y = m-1 (-m e -(x / m) + m e -(0 / m))

y = (m / m) (- e -(x / m) + e -(0 / m))

y = - e -(x / m) + e -(0 / m)

y = e -(0 / m) - e -(x / m)

y = 1 - e -(x / m)

This equation shows the probability an event will occur relative to its last draw and in proportion to the total possible reoccurrences since then to its average rate of reoccurrence. This equation can explain why you are seeing this phenomena of proportion by 6 in most everything. We need to convert this equation into a percentage by multiplying by 100%. Also, when evaluating the equation it's best to round the values to an integer value. In your case, will be looking for when does x by proportion to m is the value of y in percent equal to 100% first and only first to be 100%. In addition, we'll give this proportion an integer value to keep in line with the integer measure of y. The proportion you are looking at is as follows.

x = n · m

n is an integer factor that you are looking at and when n = 6 is the phenomena point you are observing. If we substitute in to the potential occurrence equation we get this.

y = 100% · (1 - e -((n · m) / m))

This reduces down...

y = 100% · (1 - e -n)

This is the general equation that fits for any phenomena because the average rate of reoccurrence factored out and is now relative to your observations in terms of n. n is the number of times the phenomena's average rate of reoccurrence has happened. Now we can apply it to some values and see what happens for any kind of phenomena. Below is a table showing the percentage of total occurrences that have happen since the last draw.

 n Percent 0 0% 1 63% 2 86% 3 95% 4 98% 5 99% 6 100% 7 100% 8 100% 9 100% 10 100%

As you can see, by time we get to the 6th n value, there will be in every phenomena an integer percentage of 100% occurrence. This is exactly what you are seeing, the magic #6.

Advanced high school!  Solving an integral brings back headaches! The notation you use for the limits of the integral is a bit different than what I remember, but still will produce headaches.  Thanks for writing it out.

Actually, I wouldn't know anything about 'advanced high school', I'm a dropout. I learned Calculus myself. My son is learning Calculus in high school, he's a senior and doing ok. The notation you see is what the Lottery Post allows you to see, in order to correctly see the notation the LP would have to implement something like MathPlayer in its web programming. I just formatted it as close as possible the way the LP would allow.

Ok, so if I understand what you are saying... (and if that is correct I can also fly!) the following table shows what...

 n Percent 0 0% 1 63% 2 86% 3 95% 4 98% 5 99% 6 100% 7 100% 8 100% 9 100% 10 100%

Is this based on using the number 6? If you had used a different number what would have happened?
