Just for fun....

Take the day of the year- today, June 6 08 is day 157. This is a leap year so there are 209 days remaining. (This information is in most newspapers).

So for today you would take 157 /209, or 157209 and then get the sq. root (hand held calculator).

157209 sq root = 396.4959

Take the first three digits for a Pick 3, the last four for Pick 4.

In this example:

396

4959

Or just pick out numbers from the sq root to use in Jackpot games.

Good luck.

Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

Coin Toss - I think you are wrong on today (June 6, 2008) is the 158 day of the Year, not 157. I used Excel and went through the whole Calendar Year with Feb. 29, 2008 also. So Would that be 158/208 not 157/209? So that would be 158/208 or 158208 and square root it to get. 397 for 3-Digit and 7536 for 4-Digit
