This is for the $1 and $2 Pick 3 and Pick 4 player....

I haven't back tested it or anything, I just made it up, and do it a few times a week for fun. Maybe you can have fun with it, too. 

I record thenumber drawn on my losing tickets and then compare how much they missed by, and write that on top of the ticket.

Last night (Illinois) I played 237, and 150 was drawn, so let's use that.

150  (Drawn)

237  (Played)


1 2 7  (Difference - don't worry about subtraction of the whole three numbers, just sompare how much each digit was off from the one drawn).

So now you have 127. You can go with 127 as your next play, or apply lotto math so 127 becomes 672. Play one or play both, it's up to you.

It doesn't matter where your first number to play comes from, it can be anything, favorite number, horoscope number, anything you want.

You can do the same thing with a Pick 4, too.


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.

        Good idea Coin Toss.  Although there might be a problem with that.  In my case, too many losing numbers can mean too many numbers to play  ROFL

        Keep it simple
