Here is a grid of 9 numbers that i came up with using the last 3 drawing.

8 3 6

6 2 4

1 2 5

Take the 1st column, 8,6,1. What you do is see if there are any matches for those 3 numbers.

There is a 6 in column 3. So highlight both 6's. The 1st column. The numbers in front the 6 are 2 & 4, so you add them. Gives you 6. Take column 3. Underneath the 6 are 4 & 5, so add them too. That gives you 9. Now you take the 6 and the 9 and add, gives you 15. You dealing with single digit numbers, so 15 becomes 5. Are you all with me so far?

i'M with you so far...what's the rest?

Okay, column 2, this is a little tricky. Take 3, on the left and right. you have 6 & 8. That becomes 14 or 4., underneath the 3, you have a pair of 2's. That means they get combined with each other. Here is the tricky part. You subtract 6 & 4, which is 10, from 2. 10-2=8, 6-2=4. You take the 8 & 4, and subtract again, which give you 4. So the pair of 2's give you 4, and the 3 gives you 14 or 4. The answer is 4.

So does that mean you would play: 8-4-4? I think I got a bit lost if that is not the way.

Okay, final column, which is a easy one. You are using the 6 again. In column one, you went from left to right. Now you are going right to left. In column 3, the numbers in front of the 6 are 8 & 3, which give you 11 or 1. Now right underneath the 8, you have the other 6, and right underneath that 6 is a 1. So the answer is 1. The winning number was 541. Any questions or comments?

Good thinking, badger42. While I do not play any p3 (not even as a throw-away) I do appluad what you have uncovered. Perhaps you will make a dime or two off it; I sincerely hope so.

I have to say that a lot of thought and time went into this method and it looks very promising. I will backtest it tonight for SC/NC. Thank you Badger42 for sharing your information with all of us. I will let you know what I find out with the testing.

Thanx for the reply.

I have a question. Below is a quote from you from your last step in the process.

"In column 3, the numbers in front of the 6 are 8 & 3, which give you 11 or 1".

You never use the above addition in your equation. You say 8&3 equal 11 or 1, but never use the "1". Is this step even neccessary? Because eventually you do use the "1", but not because of this equation, but because you go on to say...."Right underneath that 6 is a 1". That's how you use the "1". not from adding the 8&3.

There was no addition necessary for that particular one. In column 3, the 6 in front of 11, and in column 1, the 6 is underneath 1. There no math need. The answer is 1. The reason is both 6's point to the same number.
