                Most times, I have one favorite, I'll play it straight and boxed, the rest I'll play for 50 cents boxed, I keep my daily picks to under 10 numbers, I have a set limit on how much I spend each week, once thats gone, I am done until the next week.

                Sometimes If I think a number is due or I got a good hunch, I 'll wheel it everyday until it comes in, that seems to be my best strategy, My number will usually fall within 6 to 8 draws.

                  If you want to play, make sure you do your homework and get to know your combinations and what is more likely to draw then not.  If you can get 1 digit that is going to play and determine what position it will be in (1st, 2nd, 3rd) you can reduce your 1:1000 Odds down to 1:100 without even eliminating Doubles and Pures.

                  There are 120 "sets" of 3 different digit numbers and they draw 72% of the time.  Each of those "sets" can be written 6 different ways.  Watch your Repeat digits out of previous draws and anticipate when there will be no repeat.  Keep in mind that most digits will re-draw before they get 5 or more draws out from the last time they drew.

                  Watch your Sum Totals.   2 Even/1Odd will Sum Total Odd

                                                          2 Odd/1 Even will Sm Total Even

                                                          All Odd will Sum Odd/ All Even will Sum Even

                                                          Doubles appear about 20-25% of the time

                  In Texas we have had 15 Doubles since the 1st of the year in the Day Draw. This is about 4 times a month.  You have to look at the state you play in to determine how the numbers are falling.

                  There are Alpha Patterns 000/EEE. EOE.OEO, EEO/OOE, EOO/OEE

                  3 Denominations:  Singles, Teens, 20's.  Most of the time Sums 11-19 are drawm

                  You will improve your chances of hitting once you do  your homework and become aware of what is going on.  To do this effectively you have to put a little effort in to get something out.  This means you are going to have to keep some kind of a record of what has happened in order to determine what to play.  It may still be a "guess" but it is an EDUCATED guess.

                  I am with another on what I spend.  I may have several numbers but I play 50 cents Any Orders on most of them and pick 1 specific set I either play Straight or Boxed.  This keeps your cost down and if you have done your homework you should be able to hit often enough to make it worthwhile.   As you become more confident you can increase what you spend and if you feel really, really good about a combination spend more for a sizable hit and put you in a position to continue on.   If you don't take a chance once in a while you won't win anything.

                    Hello all,

                    I've yet to buy a ticket for Pick 3, but after doing some tests, I don't see the point. Sure, I'll win on a couple of tickets and make a profit, but then in a weeks time, I'm back to the starting $0. Sure, picking the right numbers is everything, but how much do you typically spend to do so? I see a lot of players with 50+ predictions, but to make a profit you'd have to hit straight on one of those 50 tickets, otherwise you'd just lose money. Does anyone have any tips/suggestions on how to make a profit continuously?

                    It should be noted that my tests consist of buying 50 cent tickets (Max to win = $83, Min to win =$41). Should I just buy $1 two-way tickets? Do you yourself see more of a continuous profit by buying two-way, straight, or box tickets?

                        If you want to try a system for getting straight hits this is a good one. It will give a lot box hits too. It's a lot of #'s to play, but you can reduce it down if you tie it in with other workouts. He starts off using 20 draws, but reduces it to 12 later on. I just did a backtest from Jan. 1 to yesterday and it gave 36 straight hits and 63 box hits in Md. I did the ref. boxes for every day and  the straights and box hits came mostly within the last 3 days, sometimes within the last 5. 

                        I found it may go 5-7 days with just box hits then the straights will hit big for a week or two, then it will go back to box hits. I remember playing on paper when the thread was active and it performed pretty much the same way back then. Even if you don't play all the combinations, it will give you good info on positional play. Good luck with it!!!

                            Thanks for the link gurwurston.  Will certainly check it out as you can never get too much information on how to track these numbers even after 20 years of tracking. LOL  I have always used a method of "Elimination for Determination".

                            If  you can eliminate just 4 of the 10 digits you can take the 220 sets down to 50 sets and that will still have Doubles and Pures in the mix.

                              A little more info on the 1:100.  The reason the 1,000 can be reduced to 1:100 using 1 digit is there are exactly 100 combinations with any specific digit 0-9 in any given position.

                              Furthermore the 100 can be divided 60/40 depending on how the 3 digits Sum Total....Odd or Even.  As said this includes Doubles and Pures and they can be eliminate most of the time because 72% of the time 3 different digits draw.

                              Once  you become familiar with all the combinations you will become more comfortable in being able to eliminate things.  Right now 1,000 Exacts probably seems a bit overwhelming and you have the urgent feeling that  you "have to play this and that in order to "cover your bases". If you do your homework, in time you will instinctively know what is good and what isn't. 

                              You can take $50 and play all 100 exacts with 50 cent wagers and win $250 everytime you have the one number in the right position.  If you eliminate the Doubles, Trips and Pures you can reduce the $50 by at least $10.00.
