While working on pick3, i realize that Powerball could be like PIck3 if you think about it...What if i was to tell you that predicting Powerball could be as easy as predicting Pick3 twice Straight..This is experimental that's why i am making a post out of it...I've seen predictors here at LP on the Pick3 forum get pick3's several times right from different states...And i am confident that some predictors could predict PIck3 twice Straight (not boxed)...Is not an easy feat, but i think they could do it...But it is better, predicting Powerball/Mega Millions will be predicting Pick3 straight once and then Pick2 (0-9 & 0-9) straight once..
Here it what it is:
What if you could predict the ending digits of Powerball..Wouldn't that make you happy...Let me explain what ending digits are:
1,11,21,31,41,51 have ending digit of one; 2,12,22,32,42,52 have ending digits of two; 3,13,23,33,43,53 have ending digits of three; 4,14,24,34,44,54 have ending digits of Four; 5,15,25,35,45,55 have ending digits of Five; 6,16,26,36,46,56 have ending digits of Six; 7,17,27,37,47,57 have ending digits of Seven; 8,18,28,38,48,58 have ending digits of Eight; 9,19,29,39,49,59 have ending digits of Nine; 10,20,30,40,50,60 have ending digits of Ten but in this case we are going to consider them digits of "0" (zero)...
Now what if you divided the ending digits of the 5 balls (except the bonus ball) into the first 3 ending digits and the last 2 ending digits..And what if you considered the first 3 ending digits into 3 Pick3 digits from 0 to 9..Example is the draw 5, 6, 18, 20, 50..You would then take the first 3 ending digits and consider them as Pick3: 5-6-8 and the last two as Pick2: 0-0...The key will be then, predicting PIck3 straight Once and Pick2 Straight once...Remember it must be Straight not boxed..Once you predicted Pick3 Straight + Pick2 straight, you can now join them and have 5-6-8-0-0 as ending digits...Remember that 0 is ten...Once you get the ending digits you can then try and match what regular numbers they correspond to..Example:5-6-8-0-0 you can deduct the following numbers:
I deducted 13 combinations with the same Ending digit combination..I think there might be more than those 13...But the point is that I don't think there will be more than 100 with the same ending digit combinations that you will have to deduct...The reason why they might not be more is because you are predicting the ending digits STRAIGHT and not boxed...If it was boxed there would have been thousands combinations more...
Now the odds of getting PIck3 Straight will be 1 in 1,000 and of predicting Pick2 (0-9 & 0-9) will be 1 in 100, making it a total of i think 2 in 1,100 of getting all 5 ending digits correct...And doesn't this sounds more optimistic view than just trying to predict Powerball blindfolded..I think of it as an illusion, but i don't know...Again this is an experimental theory/hypothesis..I think of it more as a strategy...
You get those 13 combinations or 100 combinations and you add the mega/bonus ball...Not to mention the many 3/5 with and without the bonus ball and 4/5 with and without the bonus ball that you will get....
If anyone feel i need correction go ahead and do so, remember this is a tryout experimental theory/hypothesis...
