I'M STARTING TO FOCUS ON PLAYING DOUBLES IN PICK 3/4, BECAUSE THE PAYOUT IS MORE $$$ FOR THE INVESTMENT.

THUS, JUST OUT OF CURIOUSITY, WHICH STATES SEEM TO HIT MORE DOUBLES IN PICK 3/4 ON A WEEKLY OR MONTHLY BASIS ???  I'M NOT ASKING ABOUT PERCENTAGES %%, I ALREADY KNOW THAT DOUBLES HIT 2-3 TIMES A WEEK ON AVERAGE.  HOWEVER, EVERY STATE IS DIFFERENT, AND EVERY STATE DOES NOT NECESSARILY FOLLOW THE NATIONAL LOTTERY AVERAGE, REGARDING WHAT SHOULD HAPPEN.  EVERY MONTH IS DIFFERENT ALSO.

FOR EXAMPLE, RHODE ISLAND, (WHICH ONLY HAS THE PICK 4 GAME), TRADITIONALLY HITS A LOT OF DOUBLES ON A WEEKLY/MONTHLY BASIS IN PICK 4, MORE THAN NORMAL. RHODE ISLAND IS A STATE THAT NOT MANY PEOPLE PAY ATTENTION TO.  MAYBE THERE ARE OTHER STATES LIKE RHODE ISLAND, HIDDEN LOTTERY GEMS, IN DISGUISE. 

I'M INTERESTED IN THOSE STATES THAT ARE HEAVY ON THE DOUBLES, MORE THAN NORMAL, IN PICK 3 & PICK 4.

ANYONE HAVE A CLUE, WITHOUT MY HAVING TO SEARCH THROUGH THE PAST RESULTS FOR ALL OF THE STATES ???

THANKS.

    THE FOLLOWING  9  STATES HAVE ONLY ONE PICK 4 DRAWING A DAY: NORTH CAROLINA, WISCONSIN, WEST VIRGINIA, LOUISIANA, RHODE ISLAND, QUEBEC, ONTARIO, PUERTO RICO, CALIFORNIA

    DURING THE TIME PERIOD OF AUGUST 30 - SEPTEMBER 30, 2009:

    STATE:                                     PICK 4 DOUBLE HITS

    NORTH CAROLINA                                 22

    WISCONSIN                                          18

    WEST VIRGINIA                                    18

    LOUISIANA                                           17

    RHODE ISLAND                                     16

    QUEBEC                                                 16

    ONTARIO                                               16

    PUERTO RICO                                        15

    CALIFORNIA                                          15

     

    SINCE THE PERCENTAGE OF DOUBLE HITS IN THESE STATES IS 50% OR MORE, IT MIGHT BE A GOOD IDEA TO TRACK AND PLAY DOUBLES IN THESE STATES , ESPECIALLY SINCE ONE DRAWING A DAY  IS MORE AFFORDABLE (ESPECIALLY ONLINE)  THAN HAVING TO PLAY TWICE A DAY TO CATCH THE DOUBLES FALLING.

      In a Pick 4 game there are 210 singles.  Each one has 24 ways to hit, so that covers 5,040 combos.

      There are 360 doubles.  Each one has 12 ways to hit, so that covers 4,320 combos.

      So, it is a lot easier to hit any given single than it is any given double.

      Rhode Island, by the way, has in the last 3,836 draws hit singles 2,053 times and doubles 1,732 times.

        IF THIS IS THE WAY YOU FIGURE IT, THEN OBVIOUSLY YOU WOULD PLAY DOUBLES BOXED, TO REDUCE THE ODDS. THE PAYOUT IS STILL MORE THAN PLAYING SINGLES.

          The payout is higher because they are harder to hit!  Don't you think the lottery people know that?  The payout on roulettte is higher for playing on only one number than 4 numbers because it is harder to hit!!

            Doubles are the easiest to Hit on all you have to do is backtest all previous doubles that have been played in the last 3or4 weeks and just play the double suit that has not been played easy money like clockwork in most states
