This is for Pick 3 players who often choose the right numbers but not the right sequence.

Let's say today's midday result was  3-7-4  (the Lowest digit was in first position, the Highest digit was second position and the 'Middle' digit was in third position... L-H-M for short).

For today's evening draw sequence, use whatever came in third position (M) and put it in first position.

Shift whatever came in positions one and two (L - H) to positions two and three respectively.

So the new sequence is M-L-H.  This is the format you arrange the combos you're playing for the next draw.


   
Let's say the last number drawn was a double.  We'll use 4-6-6 (Ascending Order) as an example.

To determine the new sequence put the third digit in first position and shift the first and second digits to the second and third positions respectively.  4-6-6 becomes 6-4-6  (Split Order).  Arrange your doubles combos in Split Order for the next draw.


Example:  let's say I've chosen to play box combos 356, 078 and 177; I will arrange them as 536 (M-L-H), 708 (M-L-H) and 717 (split order).

With this method you are combining midday and evening games when determining sequence to play.  If a double hasn't played in a while, go back to the last one that did (same for singles).  It also works if you want to keep the midday/evening games separate.

Test it for your game and see if it works for you. 

Hope it helps and good luck!

For the very next draw use whatever came in third position (in this case 'high') and put in the first position.
Shift whatever came in first position

        My bad...in my original post the bottom three lines:

        [For the very next draw use whatever came in third position (in this case 'high') and put in the first position.
        Shift whatever came in first position]

        should have been edited out.  Please ignore.  Hope that didn't confuse anyone.  What?

            It sounds like you've checked this out Kola.  This is a simple system to backtest.  How did it do over the last year in your state?

              If you are getting the box hits without the straights, try buying the three (doubles) or six (all different) variants of the box bet to have three or six winning box tickets that cost a little bit more, but almost equal the straight prize.   3 x 160 = 480, 6 x 80 = 480

                I would say that a large majority of concepts that are seemingly new to us are actually not new and have been used in some fashion in the past.  Especially if they're simple concepts.

                  Hello, Rick, as you might join your system with these groups to find 12 pairs   Changing position, these 12 groups, has no zero, but has a good use   To choose pairs in three positions, If you could create a system with these 12 pairs, since dam in 100% of the draws= 267 348 159 157 168 249 147 258 369 123 456 789

                    wouldnt you be better off just wheeling them instead? You spend the same and get the few extra dollars for a straight hit? If I played online it would probably be worth it to play the combos all straight Ill have to look into it.

                      It not a system per se. Its a fundamental tool to use in any system, and for any state...

                          The thing is, wheeling the combo(s) costs more money.  What I'm suggesting doesn't cost any extra. 

                          My feeling is that you cannot make a long-term or sizeable profit in the Pick 3 game by box betting alone on a daily basis.  Others may disagree but I just haven't seen it in 15 years of observation.  I think the best bet strategy is straight/box with an emphasis on getting it straight as often as possible.  The box wins will only help cover your bets.

                            This method works well in IL.  It works best when you go draw-to-draw.  Example, last nights draw was 541 (H-M-L), today's midday was 395 (L-H-M).  It happens frequently.  I'd be very surprised if IL was the only game where this happens.

                              What if the drawing was L-L-L or H-H-H?
