Just saying:  "Just to add, i did a test way back and the ROOT SUM of the last draw almost never  shows up in the first position in the next draw. so you can add this to your list and now have a possible 3 digits eliminated in the first position...." per the post.

It doesn't matter because there will still be too many combinations left over.

Just a reminder: I live in China so there's a 12 hour difference. So while you are awake I'm sleeping. So I don't get to see the replies right away. Here are my responses:

@Need2HIt:I will say it again: THIS IS A STRATEGY! This is NOT a number picker/Magic 8 ball/All States winner thingy. Go to another thread if you just want to get numbers. I'm just trying to help out.

@theo1946:  Right! usually if a number repeats, it's NOT in the same position. Of course it happens but statistically the odds are in YOUR favor it won't.

@ALX: Thanks for your input. I agree with you when you said "If you could disregard the 3rd number generated..." The goal is to figure out what numbers NOT to play.

@Destiny creation: I don't really do any filtering. You just keep on adding so that you get a usable number. Any number that you add to, eventually has to  be within 0-9 since each position's limit is 9. So if you have a number like 578 come out. When you add 5+7=12 . 12 falls beyond the 9 so you have no choice but to add the results again 1+2=3.   3 falls within the 0-9 that you are able to play per position. Maybe it's called filtering. I call it 'reducing' to make it simpler to understand.

You Also  said    "This "logic" is really Ridiculous!

I beg to differ! Sure you still have a lot of numbers to pick from but that's where YOU and only YOU can filter what's left. Use your imagination. Filter using EVEN, ODD, HIGH, LOW, DOUBLE, TRIPLES, SUMS, etc.  I'm just trying to think outside the box and contribute.

@adobea78: Thanks for you input. Right! You don't disregard the numbers only their 'previous positions.

@Blackapple: Thanks for posting WIN D's statistics. It will help people see what I'm trying to achieve. Sure there are still alot of numbers left but You have to Filter them out.

@Justawiner: Thanks for the compliment. I believe in sharing ideas on Lottery post. What you said about the ROOT SUMs. I have to check that out. It would be nice to eliminate more numbers. If we can eliminate 3 number from the position that would be even better! I'm trying to develop aSTRAIGHT HIT strategy which is even harder but if we put our ideas together, we can make it work.

@ThatScaryChick: Thanks for the compliment. I always loved your handle.That Scary Chick! Ha..Ha. It's so cool. If that's your picture you're using as your avatar, then you're not scary at all! Ha..Ha.

@sphj413: Thanks for your input. Back testing for your OWN state is the only way you are going to know if it works for you.

If I come up with some other ideas. I will keep you posted. If you have any ideas how to expand this. Feel free to share your views.

Play to win!

There is only an evening draw in China so let me do a workout so you can see the results.

Last nights' number was:

367--- 3+6=9                                            (Don't play in 1st position)

3+7=10 reduce further 1+0 = 1 (Don't play in 2rd position)

6+7=13 reduce further 1+3=  4 (Don't play in 3rd Position)

Also don't play :3 in the 1st position

6 in the 2nd position

7 in the 3rd position

So to sum it all up .  Don't play 9 or 3 in the 1st position   This still leaves 0,1,2,4,5,6,7,8

1 or 6 in the 2nd position  This still leaves 0,2,3,4,5,7,8,9

4 or 7 in the 3rd postion   This still leaves 0,1,2,3,5,6,8,9

Now apply filters such has Even or odd. High and Low. Followers.

I will keep you posted what number is drawn for my Pick 3 tonight.

Play to win!

GOOD NEWS! I think I found another way to eliminate one more number! If you e-mail me I will put you on my list and send you the system (like flossdog did) Ha..Ha.. Just kidding, Just kidding!

Okay here's how it works:

Take your last draw (we'll use 123 as an example)

123

and your previous draw (we'll use 567 as an example)

567

Now add each positional number vertically together like this

1+5=6   (1st. position)

2+6=8   (2nd. position)

7+3=10 (3rd. position) reduced further to 1

So you can safely NOT use 6,8,1 for the next day. Try it out!

Back test for your state and see if this also works. For me it seems to be true most of the time. Remember: No strategy works 100%. I repeat NO STRATEGY works 100%. So don't whine like a baby. I'm trying here, I'm trying here!

Another thing I want to say. You don't have to use it for ALL the positions. If you feel strong about a number coming out in a particular position, go for it. Go with your guts and feel for the game. Please let me know how it goes with you.

Play to win!

Jackpot, whatever works, use it. Not everything works the same in each state. Fl Merged, 35% of the time none of the digits from previous draw repeats, which means, 65% of the time, one of the digits will. Look at P3, no repeat in 13 draws. It has to happen, sooner or later.

 01/29/15 8 9 1 NM 9 NM 01/29/15 9 5 5 9 NM NM 01/28/15 0 9 6 0 9 NM 01/28/15 0 9 0 NM NM NM 01/27/15 1 1 6 NM NM NM 01/27/15 4 4 8 NM NM NM 01/26/15 9 6 0 9 6 NM 01/26/15 6 9 6 NM NM NM 01/25/15 0 7 4 NM NM NM 01/25/15 9 8 6 NM NM NM 01/24/15 5 5 2 NM NM NM 01/24/15 4 4 0 4 4 NM 01/23/15 9 3 4 NM NM NM 01/23/15 7 5 7 NM NM NM 01/22/15 6 0 8 NM 0 NM

with that being said. Using digits 1,8,9 in P3. The only unhit combos for Fl Merged are

069, 231, 728, 921

we will see if that strategy works

@CARBOB

Good point! That's why I alway say to back test your state. Alot of members just want a magic bullet to pick the numbers. It's not gonna happen. Thanks for your input. There are always trends and you have to know when to follow and when to wait.

2              7                 8

2+3=5      7+6=13 reduced to=4            8+7=15 reduced to =6

Your example eliminates only 18 combinations by positional wheeling:

216 218 246 248 276 278 516 518 546 548 576 578 916 918 946 948 976 978

It would be 27 combinations if you don't have digit 6 twice at 3rd position.

There are 392 combinations left:

000 001 002 003 004 005 007 009 020 021 022 023 024 025 027 029 030 031 032 033 034 035 037 039 050 051 052 053 054 055 057 059 060 061 062 063 064 065 067 069 080 081 082 083 084 085 087 089 090 091 092 093 094 095 097 099 100 101 102 103 104 105 107 109 120 121 122 123 124 125 127 129 130 131 132 133 134 135 137 139 150 151 152 153 154 155 157 159 160 161 162 163 164 165 167 169 180 181 182 183 184 185 187 189 190 191 192 193 194 195 197 199 300 301 302 303 304 305 307 309 320 321 322 323 324 325 327 329 330 331 332 333 334 335 337 339 350 351 352 353 354 355 357 359 360 361 362 363 364 365 367 369 380 381 382 383 384 385 387 389 390 391 392 393 394 395 397 399 400 401 402 403 404 405 407 409 420 421 422 423 424 425 427 429 430 431 432 433 434 435 437 439 450 451 452 453 454 455 457 459 460 461 462 463 464 465 467 469 480 481 482 483 484 485 487 489 490 491 492 493 494 495 497 499 600 601 602 603 604 605 607 609 620 621 622 623 624 625 627 629 630 631 632 633 634 635 637 639 650 651 652 653 654 655 657 659 660 661 662 663 664 665 667 669 680 681 682 683 684 685 687 689 690 691 692 693 694 695 697 699 700 701 702 703 704 705 707 709 720 721 722 723 724 725 727 729 730 731 732 733 734 735 737 739 750 751 752 753 754 755 757 759 760 761 762 763 764 765 767 769 780 781 782 783 784 785 787 789 790 791 792 793 794 795 797 799 800 801 802 803 804 805 807 809 820 821 822 823 824 825 827 829 830 831 832 833 834 835 837 839 850 851 852 853 854 855 857 859 860 861 862 863 864 865 867 869 880 881 882 883 884 885 887 889 890 891 892 893 894 895 897 899

There is nothing different with your method and random elimination of any 18 positional combinations.

Either way you'd eliminate just a small portion of total combinations (4.4%).

It may be better to play eliminated combos at the right time than deal with so many other combinations.

You can test this by Pick3gen at LottoMark com if you enter 916 278 546 in the yellow panel and hit "Wheel by position" button.

The same thing you can do for Pick4 in Pick4gen.

Actually there is a big difference. It's a different approach. There's an old expression: "There's more than one way to skin a cat" Ever heard of it? Ha.Ha.. of course you have. I'm thinking outside the box. Remember we are focusing about what numbers to NOT play. In my Pick 3 game,  number1 has been out for53 days. Chances are getting better that this number will fall soon. A double hasn't been drawn in9 days which is overdue.My point is that you have to keep track of other things in conjunction with this strategy.  This is just another tool to work with. If it doesn't work for you then don't use it. Others might find it useful and may even win. How about that.

It's not a question of liking it. I'm just trying to make clear to you and perhaps others what my intentions and purpose of this thread is. Please present your facts but that is only one aspect of how you are looking at it. I'm not bother by it. Just trying to share MY prospective free of charge. Maybe it will help some other members or maybe not. By the way, I can accept criticism so long as it is constructive and leads to an enlightenment.
