I live in Missouri, and I'm wondering if we should call in an investigation on the electronic pick 4.  Within the last 12 months we have had Quads pulled 5 times.  Since September of 2013, 0000 has been drawn twice, 8888 has been drawn twice and today 0000 was drawn.  Has anyone seen this happen before?  I mean what are the odds.  Thoughts anyone

      Certainly would seem a wee unusual considering quads have only hit 8 times since 1998 in Missouri Pick 4.

      However, the odds of 5+ quads beginning August 31, 2013, and ending today were about 1 in 1200. So nothing extreme.

      It's somewhat of a selective bias to chop up hit streaks into bins of certain dates, so taking into consideration all the draws in the game, the cumulative odds of 5+ quads are about 1 in 1.06, which is nearly 95% probability. That's good enough to say "perfectly normal" as far as being fair or random.

      If the chances of winning the jackpot are so slim, why play when the jackpot is so small? Your chances never change, but the potential payoff does.
      If a crystal ball showed you the future of the rest of your life, and in that future you will never win a jackpot, would you still play?

        18 quads total in the past year, and 5 are in the same state.  Hmm... Blue Thinking

          Didn't mean to sound like a complaint. Just wanted some folks to comments on those stats.

                  Yes @ LottoBux

                  $6,000.00 for $1.00 straight on 0000.

                  If you don't owe anyone money, they will tax it state, so you might get around, $4,200.00.

                  State taxes come out off the top, then, they give you a 1099 form to file them on your Federal taxes at the end of the year.

                  Happy Spending to all those that hit today.

                   

                  Good Luck.
