How long would be a safe to play for real (go to store and play it) 1 (3-digit number) for. Like for example 123 for both Midday & Evening. A week straight, 2 week straight, 3 weeks, a Month or longer?

Wouldn't that number if you played it 365 days (not counting leap year) for both Midday & Evening. ($2 a day*365)=$730 be worth it? If it comes up more than 1 time in that Calendar Year

      Hello MichDew, first what is your reasoning behind playing the #?

      Did you research this #, or pulled it out of thin air?

        I have a fav. Number I like to play, but I don't know if it pays to play it 2 times a day, either Straight, Box, or 2-way.

          Look back in the history of your state & see when the # has hit in the past & how many times it has hit.

          Take note of the dates on which the # has hit. & if some of the same #s appear leading up to the appearance of your favorite #. 

          Look at the postings here in the Pick 3 or Michigan threads to see if the # is listed  or perhaps posted on the prediction board.

            OK thx, i looked and my fav. number midday last came up 8-8-2007, only 1 time in 2007. Evening it came up a total of 4 times.  April 6; May 20; July 21; Oct. 30 all in 2007. It showed in Box, but that is ok. My fav. number is 507, or in any order like in a Box

              After the program I wrote showed that over 130 combinations of numbers had never hit within the past 2500 draws, I lost hope in this strategy. But it might still make sense for combos that seem to always hit well below the statistical average of 1000. I just don't know at what point do you give up?

                my personal advice is DON'T wait for a particular number to fall by playing it repeatedly..it will do more harm than good...rather adjust your play from day to day based on gut feeling and other patterns you can spot out...(012 on pa nite has not hit in 15 years straight)

                  I agree with benams.  Also watch for signs that it might hit soon, such as 005 or 007 hitting (507 was the number you like  right?) then it might fall right after or soon after. 

                  And benmas - now that you posted the 012 not hitting in 15 yrs @ nite you KNOW whats gonna happen!  Its just a matter of time now, this week, or next!  That seems to happen to me a lot, once I post a number as super cold, it hits soon after!!Thumbs Up

                    You are right. The pick and number , play and wait strategy works with repeater nunmbers.

                    In the average 1000 draws, approx. 365 straights numbers are out. Pretty stunning. Test with random numbers, check against any state. Unfailing.

                      Here in Tx, I keep an excell file of every number from 000-999 and how often each number has played day and night. There are 313 drawings a year (314 this year, non on Sunday in Tx). 179 is one of the best numbers in Tx having hit 8 times in midday drawings. So, if I play that number every day for the midday draw only for a year at $1 per day and it hits once, I net a profit of $186( $500 - $314). The only problem is that the last time it hit was June 15, 2006, so it's going on 2 years. This is playing straight only, no boxes. So, you can play your favorite number for 500 draws,( about 19 months) then if you don't hit, play it for $2 each day.

                      I play like this, but I get bored with it, so I have been playing 2 digits to repeat from the previous drawing and pick the third digit that has been out for a while. Now I don't hit very often, but a couple years ago I was playing $10 - $20 a day on P3 and I was hitting about once or twice a week, playing straight and boxed. But I was playing so much money that I still couldn't turn a profit, so now I just play $1 a day. Less stress, more fun. 

                      Hope that helped you.

                        It depends on your win expectation, but you can periodically raise your bet and still make the same profit. Time is problem with this method because you may need to eventually bet over $20 on each drawing just to win $500.

                        A read an idea where you make a stable of around 20 combos and then create indicators from current drawings and play the combo that fits. I was looking at just one 10 drawing period and saw where 273 and 120 hit, five drawings later 217 hit, and 231 hit two drawing after that. We see it because we know the results but if either 217 or 231 were in your stable, they may been the obvious play. You would have to determine how long it would take for this type of pattern to evolve; 207 hit ten drawings later.

                          dont play them...i never chase very cold numbers like that...it could easily be another 1, 2, or 5 years... if it falls let it go by...people think that oh 15 years is very long ...yea it is but one year has only 365 draws...when it comes to lotteries thats nothing..you can have 10000 drawings and like 5 particular numbers will not hit at all...just the way it is...not worth chasing them..play the hot ones is better
