There are 1000 straight possible combinations of threes, what's so unusual about 500 of them not showing up in 18 drawings?

Calculating in advance of all 18 draws, it's pretty unusual. The odds that 500 of 1000 numbers will not appear over an 18-draw span is about 3.815 x 10^-5, or about 3.8 thousandths of 1 percent.

A single three-digit play has a 50% chance of being drawn over 693 draws, and a 75% chance of being drawn over 1386 draws.

hmmmm, it really isn't much when it comes to numbers,some people make it more difficult than it has to be. If you know how to read numbers,then you will know what numbers replace one another. It is always a pattern to any given number. Anytime an 01* pair comes out,back to back dbls follow. Trying to focus on hundreds of numbers,will give anyone a headache. Hypothetically speaking, limit your numbers,that way you will have a better chance of winning as well as receiving a bigger payout by putting more money on those few numbers instead of 10/20 different numbers. You will only be disappointed when neither one comes out.
