I was wondering does a Vtrac number like follow from 1 year from the date to the next for example Michigan Midday Number for April 30, 2007 was 347 so Vtrac would be 453, April 30, 2008 Midday was 430 and the Vtrac was 541. The 45 travel just switched to 54 from 1 year apart from the date. The only Vtrac number that didn't follow was the 3 in 2007, it was 1 in 2008.

How often does the Vtrac follow from 1-year from the date to the follow year to the date?

    I don't know the answer to your question, but it IS an interesting observation. I never thought of checking that before.

      On May 2, 2006 & May 2, 2007 Midday in Michigan was the same 648 in 2006, and 846 in 2007 and the Vtrac was 254, and 452. Also The Evening 3-digit was 648 on May 2, 2006, and 168 on May 2, 2007 so the Vtrac for the evening May 2 was 254 and Vtrac May 2, 2007 was 224.

        Hi,

        i wrote in a post about this once,
        well, it was about boxed numbers.

        A boxed number (6-way) has a mathematical average skip of 166.67 draws.
        A boxed double has a mathematical average skip of 333,33 draws.

        Going back 1 year means either going back 365 draws or 313 draws (depending on the state, if it has sunday draws or not)

        Give or take a few draws, but it happens regularly that a number hits "around" the mathematical average, which means it will show itself after half a year, or a year.

        Since there are even less vtracs, and their average skips are lower, just project the fact that they also hit "around" their average skip, the chance of a vtrac returning then is higher than a boxed number.

        A 6-way vtrac has a mathematical average skip of 20.83 draws
        A 3-way vtrac has a mathematical average skip of 41.66 draws
        A 1-way vtrac has a mathematical average skip of 125 draws.

        cheers
