Wouldn't that be an incredible loss of money?

    I couldn't. In my eyes the game is constantly changing & I need to change with it.

    Like a binary option  lol

    I agree......and pick 4 pays soo much better for pretty much the same effort.

    If it wasn't impossible I wouldn't even consider it!

      I agree......and pick 4 pays soo much better for pretty much the same effort.

      Which is why it makes more sense to focus on mastering  PICK 4.

      Right!! It does pay better. I had someone on here tell me "why would you play P4 instead of P3?"

      "P4 is harder because you're picking 3 instead of 4."

      I do P4 because the natural order of numbers are more prevalent in P4.

       

      But...I'd play one Jackpot style number for a year. If it's a really good combo.Jester

      The goal is to approach the Pick 3 & Pick 4 game sensibly and systematically!! Wink

       I'm not like the guy who predicted the end of the world and nothing happened.

        If I did play one number for a year I'd be off by one an incredible number of times.

        Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

        There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

              Mamma28z,

              Yeah, Missouri has one off too. I'm in Illinois though, we get things like Fireball.

                  Any straight hit after the 250th drawing pays less than even money (bet $250 to win $250) so an entire year isn't a good bet IMO. I'd put a 90 or 100 drawings limit on any single pick-3 number.

                  If there is a "holy grail" of pick-3 systems, it's probably a way of finding one three digit number that will be drawn in the next three months.

                    It was late and was tired when I posted this,lol.

                    So what I really meant was would you play a number until it hit? (even if it took a whole year to come in.)

                    But,yes,you're right. After 250 days you might think twice about dropping it.

                    But if you're playing everyday ANYWAY, why wouldn't you stick with a same number? (until it hit) Even if it was OVER 250 days? You're still playing right? Whatever number you've been playing, it's as good a number as any.

                      That's an excellent point; is there a difference between playing one three digit for 250 drawings and then switching to another number when it doesn't hit?

                      And yes if you're playing everyday anyway for the same amount, the bad thing would be if the first number hit shortly after you stopped playing it. FYI, 023 went over 11,000 drawings in Ohio without a hit.

                        I'd play one number I like for a year...plus all the rest too. Big Smile

                        I couldn't stand being limited to one number. Is that what you're

                        saying? Just one number?

                        If so and I think you are..I'd go nuts.

                        Hey though, how much can I put on it btw? Big Grin
