I like Jimmy's chart. Excellent work I think.

I'm using your post to reply to Jimmy because by using his, the right margin is a mile to the right, making it difficult to read.

I used a similar chart in a 5/39 game with the exception this chart puts the previous drawing numbers in numerical order and I entered them into the same order. For instance my chart would show the last drawing numbers in the order of 26-22-30-57-21 which is the same order they appeared in the previous line. It's not a huge difference, but it could place a number 32 numbers out when it might be only 28.

The chart is very easy to read and shows where each number is in relationship to the other numbers and easy to see how far out the drawn numbers are. Using the chart, I noticed how quickly a number can go from being drawn to the 26 position, but then only gradually moves to the right because not many of those numbers were being drawn. Some numbers will stay in one "right position" longer than it took them to move to 26, while other numbers will be frequently drawn before or around the 26 position.

I used the sections of the chart that consistency matched 2 or 3 numbers with an occasional 4 number match. The amount of drawings when the first 28 numbers match five might be better than 1 out of 39, but not probably not enough for playing every drawing. There might be a way to predict when it's more likely five of the first 28 numbers will be drawn within 3 or 4 drawings. If so it could be a much better strategy.

    I haven't posted the MegaMillions SkipLowHigh chart but suprisingly there are not that many instances where you can throw out the worst 28 numbers.  MegaMillions seems to be more consistent in having a number with 10 or greater games out hitting.  Of course that can be a strategy in itself of having at least 1 number that is 10 games out or greater in your combination.  A better strategy possibly would be throwing 28 numbers out in the middle of the chart versue the right edge.  If MegaMillions rolls tonight I will post its chart tomorrow.

      Lest anyone think I have given up on winning a JP based on skills, I'm playing the last 20 drawn numbers.

          Lest anyone become deliriously confused, these are NOT "suggested bets" (Jammy).

          Play at your own risk!

            The average lottery player and LP member wouldn't even give it second thought, Ronnie. But you're probably better of by giving a disclamer or face the wrath of our wana-be Carrie Nation of gambling.

              Jammy has been almost silent of late. Perhaps working as an only Stooge is not much fun?

                Probably because nobody will address his issues that have nothing to do with a discussion. I can't think of one logical argument against trying to match five numbers from a group of the most recently drawn numbers when it's a statistical fact 91% of the number will not be drawn but the Stooges came up with several illogical arguments. It was clear your objective was to match 5 from a group of 28 numbers and match the bonus number which you did. But that didn't stop him and the other Stooges from inventing arguments that didn't apply to your objective.

                I won't speak for all pick-3 players, but my largest pick-3 and pick-4 wins came from using intuition and hunches betting with an amount of money I could easily afford to lose. His idea a one drawing hunch bet with an unknown affordable amount is comparable to a simulation using unknown QP with a set betting amount for 1825 drawings is just plain goofy.

                  I Agree! Pure logic void of Godly wisdom often leads people into goofy land, and goofy needs companionship.

                          Stack47,

                          The mathematics governing the probabilities in these simple lottery games is elementary and pathetically simple.

                          "I can't think of one logical argument against trying to match five numbers from a group of the most recently drawn numbers when it's a statistical fact 91% of the number will not be drawn but the Stooges came up with several illogical arguments."

                          Of course there's no  logical reason AGAINST your selection methods.  You won't lose [or win] any more than the Quick Pick players!  What the "stooges" have been repeatedly telling you is that, over the long haul, it makes absolutely no difference how you select your numbers.  In the short run, the following example best illustrates the [only] control you have over the distribution of your winnings:

                          If you spend $10 per day buying 10 identical $1 straight tickets on your favorite Pick-3 number, over time, on average, you will win $5000 about once every 3 years.  If you're lucky, and you happen to win $5000 early in the process, I would recommend that you, "take the money and run!"  Alternatively, if you spend that same $10 on your Top Ten favorite numbers, over time, on average, you will win $500 about every 3 months.

                          You pays your money, you takes your choice.

                          As long as you don't pay some low-life a fee to tell you which numbers are more likely to win, and you have plenty of time to waste, be my guest, LOOK BACK, filter, and have a ball!

                            The mathematics governing the probabilities in these simple lottery games is elementary and pathetically simple.

                            "I can't think of one logical argument against trying to match five numbers from a group of the most recently drawn numbers when it's a statistical fact 91% of the number will not be drawn but the Stooges came up with several illogical arguments."

                            Of course there's no  logical reason AGAINST your selection methods.  You won't lose [or win] any more than the Quick Pick players!  What the "stooges" have been repeatedly telling you is that, over the long haul, it makes absolutely no difference how you select your numbers.  In the short run, the following example best illustrates the [only] control you have over the distribution of your winnings:

                            If you spend $10 per day buying 10 identical $1 straight tickets on your favorite Pick-3 number, over time, on average, you will win $5000 about once every 3 years.  If you're lucky, and you happen to win $5000 early in the process, I would recommend that you, "take the money and run!"  Alternatively, if you spend that same $10 on your Top Ten favorite numbers, over time, on average, you will win $500 about every 3 months.

                            You pays your money, you takes your choice.

                            As long as you don't pay some low-life a fee to tell you which numbers are more likely to win, and you have plenty of time to waste, be my guest, LOOK BACK, filter, and have a ball!

                            Who died and put you in charge of the playing rules?

                            Where is written a player must spend $10 a day for 3 years or always play the same three digit number?

                            "on average"

                            On average, how many three digit numbers won't be drawn in the next 1000 drawings?

                            How many weren't drawn in the last 1000 drawings?

                            On average each digit in each digit position should be drawn 100 times in 1000 drawing but looking at the results of the last 1000 drawings in any pick-3 game, five digits are usually drawn more than 100 times and five are usually drawn less.

                            If your averages never match the results, why do you keep saying "on average"?
