For all games, oddities, trivia, etc...

Here's two for Illinois:

Pick 3:

The number 500 has not hit straight since the 8-24-2006 Evening draw.

Little Lotto:

5-12-2010: 8  13  22  23  29

5-15-2010: 8  12  13  22  23

This is why I rarely play quads.

 

Missouri ~~~~~~October 24th, 2000                    Evening~~~~~~~~~~~~5555

********************************************************************

another one,

1042, dropped   5 times this year so far.

Where is my 3310?

 

The Struggle is real!

    Georgia - 73% (8 of 11) times that 122 has come up have been on Mondays.

    Last week, Georgia drew 3 triples - 777 on Sunday, 666 on Wednesday, and 444 on Saturday.

     

    Virginia - 738 hit midday on 26 April. Prior to that, half (3 of 6) of its wins were on New Year's Day. 

    There have been a few Cash 5 combinations that have hit twice throughout the history of the game. 

    Before 19 Apr., 777 was the second least recent winner, not having won in almost 8 years.

     

    Coin Toss - not to rain on your parade, but having a number not hit straight in 4 years is actually not that uncommon, even in a lottery that draws twice daily. Georgia has about 90 such numbers. Perhaps it's the number 500 though. In Georgia, which has drawn twice daily for the past 12 years, there are a few numbers (541, 360, 746) that last hit straight in 2000.

    Today's winning 3-ball is going to be a number between 000 and 999.

    In a lot of states, lotteries benefit education. That makes the REAL winners the only people who can't play!

      here's one that potentially concerns a Connecticut anomaly this week

      950 hasn't been drawn day or night since may 12th 2003

      That 950 has some major problems in Connecticut. I read on the Connecticut Lottery website that it took over 8,000 drawings for 950 to show up for the first time. Connecticut's Pick 3 game started in 1977 and 950 did not hit for the first time until 1999.

       

      I came up with more for Virginia.

      - The Pick-3 numbers for 1-3 May 1995 were all 52x front pairs. Similarly, the Pick-3 numbers for 13-15 Mar. 2010 were all 93x front pairs.

      - During the week of Apr. 14-19, 1997, every day Pick-3 number was not only an American-style birthday but also a European-style birthday. 

           Mon. 14th - 128 (American: Jan. 28, Dec. 8. European: 12 Aug.)

           Tue. 15th - 103 (American: Jan. 3, Oct. 3. European: 1 Mar., 10 Mar.)

           Wed. 16th - 125 (American: Jan. 25, Dec. 5. European: 12 May)

           Thu. 17th - 407 (American: Apr. 7. European: 4 Jul.)

           Fri. 18th - 912 (American: Sep. 12. European: 9 Dec.)

           Sat. 19th - 311 (American: Mar. 11. European: 31 Jan., 3 Nov.)

      - During the workweek of Aug. 28 - Sept. 1, 2006, every day drawing number ended in doubles (844, 366, 888, 677, 766). 

       

      There were two occasions where the Cash 5 consisted only of single-digit numbers. I know that this has happened in Hot Lotto once (including the bonus ball)!

      Today's winning 3-ball is going to be a number between 000 and 999.

        Tennessee has never drawed 666.

        The British Columbia lottery, which ran a Pick-3 game for about 12 years, never drew 666 either.

        Today's winning 3-ball is going to be a number between 000 and 999.

          Hermanus104,

          No parade rained on, good research.

          The Illinois lottery website has a search feature for past wining numbers but for Pick  and 4 it's a little weak, you can search straights with no problem but if you search "any order" instead of giving you boxed hits it gives you any time any of the three or four digits you're looking for hit.

          For example, if you were looking to see when 124 hit, any order, it would give you each individual 1, 2, or 4, or 1 and 2, 2 and 4, etc......

          It would be intersting oif someone did a history of drawings and found some of those numbers that didn't hit in ten years to keep showing up in different states!

          Scared

          Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

          Lep

          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.

            In California's Fantasy 5 game: on 11/25/2000 all 5 numbers repeated from 11/15/2000; the second quirky part is that 28 people hit the 5/5 match for $2,402 each.

            Just recently, the 28 5/5 matches gave me the hunch of asking for a printout of 5/3/00. My suspicion was confirmed when the printout showed 13 matched 5/5 for $10,897 on 5/3/00, when all 5 numbers repeated from 3/2/2000.  It makes one wonder if the same people on 11/25 were some of the same or somehow related to those on 5/3/00.

              That's doubly suspicious, the numbers repeating solid and the number of people hitting the jackpots.

              Good research, LottoMining.

                The British Columbia lottery, which ran a Pick-3 game for about 12 years, never drew 666 either.

                PA lottery drew 666 a couple of times, most famously on April  24, 1980....."Nick Perry and the Triple 6 fix. " I remember when it all came out in the wash....

                I believe that there were other combos  with 4s and 6s that could have played and 666 came out and was the downfall for the "Bowling for Dollars" host that also hosted the evening lottery drawings.

                  Georgia just kicked off the month of June with two day / night split pair matches.

                  1st: 952 / 992

                  2nd: 656 / 646

                   

                  Georgia also drew its 3rd least recent winner for the past 2 Thursday day draws (746 and 162)

                  Today's winning 3-ball is going to be a number between 000 and 999.

                    Very good research on your part--as I recall a couple of months either Mid-Day or Evening Daily 3, the numbers that hit that particular day were: "000"; which meant no str/box or box winner--it had to be a straight winner.  We forget sometimes that zero is a "number" and they can certainly play it anyway they can.Wink
