I don't play pick 3 much any more too low a profit. However perhaps since I have been asked to do so via PM from lp members maybe I might. Since a solution is in how you sort the numbers and track them out that.
If your methods are vague then playing straight a lot of numbers lowers profit.
Playing small quantity is better for higher profit.
Yeah, there are many things to consider here when playing. When I was playing state it was more risk involved, for me, due to the payout on $1 per number. I'd have to filter out additional combinations and ultimately decrease efficiency while increasing risk. This is only my opinion based on how I run my system. Others may feel that increasing number counts is a waste of time and money.
If one plays online, it makes it so much better because the payouts are substantially higher thus allowing more robust wagers (numbers) for players like myself. I run the same amount of numbers each time I play which yields the same profit and it is relatively low considering the buy in. However, this is much more than I can make working for someone else which makes it well worth the while.
Believe me, hawk, if I could play less numbers while maintaining the same consistency and generating a greater profit, I would definitely do it. So far, I haven't been able to come up with a way to accomplish this but, I don't know everything and am still experimenting with things on the side. Playing str8 does lower profit significantly and also makes it much, much harder to play because if you miss just one number, you're out unless you've also wagered for boxed and/or pairs of some sort to get something out of the deal.
Playing a small set of numbers has its' benefits because you'll only lose a little "if" you miss the mark and you'll make one hell of a profit "if" you hit the way you want to hit. "If" is the operative word here and it's a big word when gambling, you know, making all the difference in the world. For me, a relatively low yet consistent and dependable profit is the way to go because I'm trying to get all my previously lost money back.
Then, and only then will I actually be making any money and I don't have much farther to go before reaching my goal. I honestly encourage you and all the members to think about what you really want from playing your hard earned money. It sounds like the community is hungry and they want you to feed them. Take care of your business...and it will take care of you.
