So anybody know the odds of picking 6 numbers out of the 10 possible for a
Pick 3 then wheeling those 6 numbers in 20 different plays & not getting a
single one right because even though you picked 6 out of 10 numbers to play
you didn't get even one number correct because all 3 #s drawn were from the
4 remaining numbers you didn't pick! What are the odds or math of that happening!
To be honest sometimes I think I would have better luck picking 6 numbers, then
just throughing out 4 of them & replace them with the remaining 4 I didn't pick the
Can't tell you how many times I have played tickets & lost money, then went well that
ain't working then the next day pick numbers but not play them & then of course they
win Go Figure That One Out!!!
I'm amazed how I can put hours of thought & research into my number selection
by evaulating past draws, looking at cold numbers, hot numbers etc make my best
educated decision based on that info & then not get one fricking number correct out
of the 6 I choose to play with!

Sounds like what you are doing is throwing out all the numbers that hit the previous draw.
So let's see if this helps.
Look at the numbers highlighted in yellow. About 62% of the time one number repeats. Notice 3 followed 3, 2 followed 2, 8 followed 8, blah, blah, blah.......nice huh?
Now look at the numbers highlighted in the green looking color. 6 skipped one draw, not once but TWICE. 5, hit, skip, hit, skip hit. 7, hit, skip, hit. 9, same thing.
While we're at, let's look at how long each digit has been out. We know that each digit should repeat within 2 to 3 draws.
0 has been out 1 draw
1 out 0
2 out 1
3 out 0
4 out 4
5 out 3
6 out 0
7 out 5
8 out 3
9 out 6
What we do now is take all this and go over to Lottery Systems and see Laverne Maloney's CHA-CHA-CHA thread.
You'll be surprised at all the good people you find there!
