Hello LP Family-

Was curious if anyone knew why Florida has not had a triple since 1/4/08?  It was 777. I like viewing the pick 3 numbers that fall nationally and found this to be odd. Are triples supposed to fall every so often each year? Thanks.

Triples are a group of 10 straight combinations and one of those combos has the same chance of being drawn as one combo from any other group of 10 numbers. If Florida has one pick-3 drawing each day, 635 or more straight combinations will not be drawn each year and from that you could create thousands of 10 combo groups that won't have one combo drawn.

"Are triples supposed to fall every so often each year?"

It's a random drawing so there is no way to tell how often triples should hit; just because they are 1% of the combos doesn't mean they will hit once every 100 drawings. But over time random drawings will still average about the same as probability so in 10,000 drawings there will be about 100 triples drawn. 90 of them could hit in 10 of those years and the other 10 could be distributed over the other 17 years.

It's not a big deal, I move several posts a day.  As long as you eventually figure it out, it's really OK.

While there are no guarantees when triples will fall when i first joined lottery post i wanted to know the same thing i found out someone said that triples fall between 80 and 120 days apart in other words a around 80 days after a triple has came out that another triple was due.

This is not written in stone just an observation from someone whom checked out all the states and came up with that theory.

Florida only had evening drawings for a long time so i don't know about the time frame between triples there.

For a while here in Maryland triples did fall in those time frames now for whatever the reason triples are on a vacation.

Here are Florida's triples check the time frames out over the years see what you come up with.
