Looking over my "1st position" chart, I just noticed something worth mentioning. It seems when the 1st position digit i have listed hits it usually comes back to hit again in the same position.
1/29 eve: 844 Digit 8 came back as: 2/02 eve: 854
2/01 mid: 710 Digit 7 came back as: 2/04 eve: 725
2/01 eve: 016 Digit 0 came back as: 2/03 eve: 059
2/02 mid: 113 Digit 1 came back as: 2/07 mid: 193
2/03 mid: 480 Digit 4 came back as: 2/05 mid: 438
2/06 eve: 558 Digit 5 came back as: 2/09 eve: 580
2/11 mid: 983 Digit 9 came back as: 2/11 eve: 936
2/14 eve: 374 Digit 3 came back as: 2/18 mid: 390 <Updated!
2/15 mid: 774 Digit 7 came back as: 2/17 mid: 771
2/15 eve: 893 Digit 8 came back as: TBD
2/16 mid: 093 Digit 0 came back as: 2/17 eve: 040
It seems that this first position digit return list is doing well so i tried to figure out a way to use it for a straight hit. The outcome is this: too many numbers to play! So i figured out a way to reduce the amount of picks to play to a reasonable amount, if you think that 16 to 32 picks is reasonable. 16 picks played .50 straight is $8 per play for a chance to win $250, not bad to me. Here are examples from the list above and the first being the best:
844 - digit 8 is the expected 1st pos. return.
Now we would take the digit 8 and make pairs with the other 2 digits: 84 is the only pair we can make.
We would now take the 84 pair and add 0-9 minus the 4 and 8 to make:
Now flip pos. 2 and 3 with 8 staying in same spot.
These would have been your 16 picks to play straight and the result would have been a straight hit on 854 as stated above.
The best numbers to work with are the double digit winner that has a 1st position return expected. Example #2:
113 - Digit 1 is the expected 1st pos. return.
Pairs would be: 11-13 each with 0-9 minus digit 1 and 3.
In this case here, there are 32 picks to play, @.50 straight would equal $16 per play for a $250 hit. A little steep or not depends on the player.
The result would have been a straight hit on 193 as stated above.
There are 2 more examples that i could use, the 558 and the 774 but i will only be repeating myself and the outcome with 32 picks each will yeild a straight hit. I'm sure someone with an online account will be smiling alot since (if i'm not mistaken the bet amount is .25 each) they could play the picks for less wager. If anything pops up i will let everyone know.
