Personally I won more on Pick 4 over Pick 3.

It depends on your luck on numbers, and the way you see them.

I'm glad you mentioned luck. Luck is a factor, but some here on the LP can't tell the difference between luck and a mixture of luck and human involvement which may influence the outcome of the numbers. Fo some reason, that simple concept just can't get absorbed by their simpleton minded brain.

It's so sad.....

    Give me your opinion on which one is easier regardless of the odds. At the end i will tell you which one is easier, less time consuming and why.

      As for me the pick 3 is by far easier than the pick 4. However I have not devoted as much time to the pick 4.

      Hits in the pick 3 are better than good when you track the digits 3, 6, 9.

        In California, we have the "Daily 3" and "Daily 4" picks.  I suppose the 3 picks are easier, but the jackpot is considerably less.

          The California Daily 3 and Daily 4 games give the player the option of designating a "Box" or "Straight" winning combination. The "Box" option reduces the jackpot by half. I won a hundred bucks one time with a box option, but it's been a while since then.

            I would say they are pretty equal. Same amount time goes into both. Pick 4 is best for me !

                If you box a number with 3 different digits, you're playing six straight numbers at 1/6 of the $1 straight payoff. If a straight hit pays $600 and you have $1 box, you'll get $100.

                A double number $1 box is 3 straight numbers getting 1/3 of the $1 straight payoff.

                      I'm not sure which is easier but I won playing the WV Daily 4 but never won anything from the Daily 3.

                        pick 3 is a little easyier to hit not a big pay out unless you hit it for a str 8 a couple of times  how many times has a daily number you liked come out in pick four lets say you like 318 and pick four that day is 3818 there is your 318 if you st @ box 318 all 50- 50  cost $5.00 you would have won $200.00 dollars or if 8130  $100.00 and if 3180 hit you would get $2,600.00 I have had several box wins doing this with my daily number's

                        hoping for a str8 to hit  just som info for everyone good luck to all

                          Give me your opinion on which one is easier regardless of the odds. At the end i will tell you which one is easier, less time consuming and why.

                          First, I assume you are NOT talking about any type of computerized lottery.

                          That having been said, statistically speaking, Pick 3 is "easier" because of the odds of 3 out of 10 numbers opposed to 4 out of 10 numbers.

                          With THAT said, I like Pick 4 better because I find there are more variables to chart and work with.

                          Finally, I mostly focus on the Cash 5 or Pick 6, but I like to study trends and patterns in the 3 and 4. 

                          Oh, I did win the Pick 3 once, but not the "usual" way.  For some reason related to a number mentioned in that day's Gospel reading, the substitute retired priest mentioned a number in his sermon at Mass and said, "I don't play the lottery and never will, but if I were you I'd play this number in the lottery today."  (I think it was 229 or something like that.)

                          So I told my buddy there let's play it.  (He did not play it.)  I wheeled it for 1.50 and won in NJ (I live on the NJ/PA border).  But stupid me did not think to play it in Pennsylvania that night and guess what?  The same number came out THAT same night! 

                          No, we haven't seen that priest again.

                              P3 is probably easier, I played it heavy a few years ago, but now that Tx has Daily 4, I play it once or twice a week. What I like about it is that I'll drop $10 on a number straight, to try for $50k. (Yeah I've played and hit boxed, but that's boring). 10,000 to 1 odds to hit straight. Hard? Yes. But not as hard as hitting for $10k on MM or PB.
