After having this info repeated several times in many pick 3 systems I have purchased over the years, doesn't it make sense to follow it ? :

1.)  The best numbers due to play are those with different digits (456) because these are

expected to be drawn seven out of ten chases.

2.)  50% to 75% of the time one of three digits drawn yesterday will be drawn today as well.

3.)  25% of the time one of three digits drawn the day before yesterday will be drawn today.

4.)  10% of the time two out of three digits drawn yesterday will be drawn today.

5.)  The best digits to play are the ones, which are drawn now, and not a week or a month ago.

I've been testing various strategies from many lotto systems and I have to say that wheeling 6 numbers out of 10 really does give you a good advantage, especially if you play them boxed or straight/boxed. I used to play 5 #'s wheeled before and did fair, but playing 6 numbers wheeled gives you a much better chance and it only costs you \$10 more (\$1 bet) or \$5  more (with .50 bet).

Payout for \$1 bet boxed is \$80 or .50 cents paying out \$40.

20#'s played(\$20) at 1\$ = \$80 win ... 4 x your investment - \$20 = \$60 profit

20#'s played(\$10) at .50 = \$40 win ... 4 x your investment - \$10 = \$30 profit

* NOTE - If you play your numbers STRAIGHT/BOX , then you have to play for \$1 each . You cannot play STRAIGHT/BOX option for .50 cents (just a reminder)

There are 10 combinations with 5 out of 10 numbers selected OR 20 combinations with 6 numbers selected

Lets apply the rules above for tonights Florida Ca\$h 3 and see how we do ...

9/30 -  627

9/29 -  524

9/28 -  962

9/27 -  793

9/26 -  356

9/25 -  043

9/24 -  410

Last nights pick 3 was 627 (rule 2)

Night before was 524 (rule 3)

Night before that was 962 (rule 4)

We only go back 7 draws (rule 5) (the extra days are in case the 1st few days have repeating numbers..find the non-repeating number going through each day in order till you get it)

After applying these rules, come up with our 6 #'s to wheel ...     627549 (rule 1 ..no repeating #'s)

Combinations from our chosen set are ... 627,625,624,629,675,674,679,654,659,649,275,274,279,254,259,249,754,759,749,549

The above numbers are selected for October 1st

This is how I've been playing and hope it brings you some luck.

Good Luck !

How would you play this with the last 3 drawing having all different numbers which means you have 9 numbers

Also my state has 2 drawing do you only go by the night drawing or today and last night/

Good question ..  (use the weekly percentages of the most commonly drawn number to pick the rest of your numbers)

First off, use the last 3 #'s drawn (if last drawn number was 373, then use 37 and move on to next numbers for the previous day)

and then choose 2 numbers for the next day and

1 number from the 3rd day

playing a 9 # wheel gives you 84 combos... defeating the purpose of winning \$80

Thats how I do it when that happens.

Hope that helps

Omniscient

Also .. keep day drawings separate from night drawings .. they are 2 separate entities and have their own number sets to work off.. dont use night picks for day draws and vice versa.

1 more thing ..just in case anyone wasnt sure of it, the numbers posted on the 1st post are for Florida's Ca\$h 3 Evening draw for 10/1 ..just an fyi

I like this Omniscient. Now looking at the latest results the digit 2 is taking it's turn & we can see why. Soon the digit 4 should appear. I'm looking at this with you. Thanks for the post.

Wish I would have used it last night as it would have gotten me a box win. However, I didn't use it because I was expecting doubles (my main problem with wheeling).

GOOD LUCK EVERYONE

Hi Shawn,

Doubles can be heartbreaking and ruin all those tickets in one quick swoop. I've been following the statistics as of lately and doing ok. Just use the rules as a guideline to see if your numbers follow any of the criteria.

excerpt from 1st post...

" After having this info repeated several times in many pick 3 systems I have purchased over the years, doesn't it make sense to follow it ? :

1.)  The best numbers due to play are those with different digits (456) because these are

2.)  50% to 75% of the time one of three digits drawn yesterday will be drawn today as well.

3.)  25% of the time one of three digits drawn the day before yesterday will be drawn today.

4.)  10% of the time two out of three digits drawn yesterday will be drawn today.

5.)  The best digits to play are the ones, which are drawn now, and not a week or a month ago. " <--- I go back 7 draws maximum

Good Luck !

I guess my next question would be: after you come up with your best 6 numbers to wheel, are you keeping thos numbers until you get a win from them? Or, are you picking a new set of best 6 numbers to play each day (based on the previous 7 draws)?

GOOD LUCK EVERYONE

I've tried those strategies when i first heard about them 10 years ago. The problem is to replace the variables with the correct numbers for a win. That's always the tricky part with any method(s). Also.....how a given person interprets the findings and assigns numbers is debatable. There is no correct guess that's universal, only luck in those interpretations of the data.

Of course this info is pretty much what we have to go on and make the best of it , but in the long run, the right 6 numbers is key, and doubles ruin the day....

I found no profit in this in the long run. At 10 bucks a day expenditure, for a 70 dollar profit once in a while was not practical. Maybe if we could reduce the 10 sets down to 3 sets....lol
