destiny...did this chart years ago

I had a look at the chart by Destiny2003f as suggested by Duchess69, Sherita, Kreative1 and Tianca.  Thanks to Ranman17 for sharing the chart with me.

Destiny's system takes all the pairs from the last two results, looks them up in the chart, discards the original pair that hit and takes the pairs on either side of the original pair to play in the next game.  Her system looks at either 1 pair on either side of the original pair or 2 pairs on each side of the original pair.

I looked at the second option, which is essentially all of the remaining pairs in the odd-numbered groups and 4/5 remaining pairs in the even-numbered groups.  For ease of calculation, I used all the pairs.

Using this method, you will hit your pair 85% of the time -- in other words, 85% of the time one of the pair sums groups will repeat from the last 2 games.

32% of the time there will be one pair group repeating, 36% of the time there will be 2 groups repeating, and 17% of the time all the groups in the new result can be found in the previous two draws.  Note, however, that this mainly happened when doubles were drawn.

So, this would be a good method to find a pair in your upcoming draw, however filtering is definitely necessary.  Bear in mind that there will be five or six pair sum groups in the previous 2 drawings.  Even when you drop the pairs from the last two draws, this will give you between 22 and 32 pairs -- or 40% to 60% of the total number of pairs.

Where I would see this method making sense is in finding a double pair if you think doubles will hit next.  Quite often the double pair will come from an even-numbered group that hit in the last 2 games, giving 4 potential double digits for the upcoming game.

Recently I read a post that referred to the sums of pairs, an idea that I had not previously considered. So I set up a spreadsheet so that I could play around with the concept, and I’m glad I did.

I summed each of the 55 pairs in the Pick 3 game and then grouped the pairs by the Last Digit of the Pair Sum. For example, pair ‘56’ sums to 11, so it went into group 1, Pair ‘77’ sums to 14 so I put it in group 4.  Root sums would also work, but I like LDS.

This gives 10 groups of pairs with LDS 0-9. Once I started playing around with these groups I noticed some really interesting characteristics.

 0 00 19 28 37 46 55 1 01 29 38 47 56 2 02 11 39 48 57 66 3 03 12 49 58 67 4 04 13 22 59 68 77 5 05 14 23 69 78 6 06 15 24 33 79 88 7 07 16 25 34 89 8 08 17 26 35 44 99 9 09 18 27 36 45

-the even sums of pair groups each have 6 pairs: 2 doubles, 2 odd pairs and 2 even pairs

-theodd sum of pair groups each have 5 pairs: 1 mirror pair, 2 consecutive pairs and 2 “ghost” pairs (one even digit, one odd digit)

Although the even numbered groups have more combinations, all groups hit at the same rate – since doubles hit less often.

-Looking at the Even/Odd combinations of these groups, there are only 2 possible configurations: EEE and OOE. 75% of the time you will get OOE,that is 2 Odd-numbered pair groups and 1 even-numbered pair group.  25% of the time you will get 3 Even-numbered pair groups.  No other configuration of E/O is possible – go ahead, give it a try!

-About half the time when a double is drawn it will be EEE (3 even or odd digits e.g. 266, 799), and the other half of the doubles will be OOE (a mixture of even and odd, e.g. 223, 558).

Unmatched numbers with the EEE configuration show up about 12% of the time, and are always all even or all odd combinations such as 157 or 246.

Doubles will have only 2 sum groups but unmatched will ALWAYS have 3 different sum groups.

The arrangements of High and Low sums are much more in line with what we expect:

HHH 11.5%

HHL 38.5%

LLH 38.5%

LLL 11.5%

About 60% of the time there will be at least one repeat group from one game to the next, with most of these (45%) being 1 repeat group.

The pair sum groups have a median skip of 2, so there are few long out streaks, with most streaks resolving after 7-15 outs.

Now, this is not a system, but it seems that with all these quirks it has potential as the basis of a system.

Any ideas?

If one of the digits 0,1,8,9, hit 79% of the time, then my thoughts are you should play the pairs with at least one of those digits.

Fl Mid hits 79% using at least 1 of those digits. I am changing the way I look at Cash 3 combos.

Great point, Carbob!

This would be a high-percentage filter for the pairs with 2 different digits.  However I wouldn't use this for double pairs as you would be filtering out 60% of the doubles (unless you were expecting a trough-pair double, of course).

Thanks for this contribution.

Good stuff Tialuvslotto; this chart can definitively be used to create a system based on pairs.

Thank you for posting,

GOOD LUCK EVERYONE

I was taking a look at doubles using this system, and it has some interesting peculiarities that might help us with our doubles game.

Only even sum groups contain a double pair, and then they contain the mirror doubles.  For example:

Sum Pair Group 0 = 00,55

Group 2 = 11,66

Group 4 = 22,77

Group 6 = 33,88

Group 8 = 44,99

Just over one-quarter of the time (28%) the double digit will come from a pair group that came out in the last draw.  So, either the double digit repeats from the previous draw, or the mirror of the double digit appeared in the previous draw about 1 time in 4 doubles.

We could use this as a filter.  About 72% of the time, or about 3 times in 4, the Pair Sum group that contains the double digit will NOT have appeared in the previous game.  That is the even group(s) in the previous draw do not repeat into the following double draw.

For example, say the most recent result is 392 and we are expecting doubles in the next draw.

392 has pairs 23, 29 and 39 which come from Pair Sum groups 5, 1 and 2.  Since only even Pair Sum groups contain double pairs, we could eliminate Group 2 (02,11,39,48,57,66) and not play the 11 and 66 pairs in any double combinations.

In this case the following result was 088, so our bet was correct, and we successfully eliminated 2 double pairs from consideration.

Remember that I am going from one draw to the next here, not from double to double.
