I know a lot of people miss by one often but this is the first time I did this one:

My numbers:

300

537

Draw: 730

So the first one had the 3 and the 0, the second one had the 3 and the 7. 

Both were straight box plays.

Bang Head

Same evening, Illinois Lucky Day lotto- a 5/45 game, results:

3  4  6  9  19

A lot of people would have considered those bad numbers if they got them on a quick pick. Nobody won the jackpot, it rolled, but you just never know, do you?

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.

    Perhaps it was not meant to be- Perhaps a bigger jackpot awaits CT.

      All Pick3 prizes are fixed amounts, they don't get bigger with time.

          You misunderstood my post RJ- l meant him missing out on the P3 and bagging a " larger jackpot=   MM/PB" game. The fault is mine, l was not specific enough. Smile

                True. But if a person were to buy 500 tickets($1 for each Pick 3 Lotto ticket) with one set of numbers straight on all of them, they are going to get $250K in total winnings if those numbers hit. Although I have yet to hear of anyone trying to wager $500 worth of tickets that is based on the prize amount of $500 for a straight set per ticket with the same one set of numbers. Afterall, those who win actually play the numbered games with the small payouts and multiply the average prize amount per ticket by 10x or more.

                I would assume that guys like Richard Lustig really makes their money by playing games like Pick 3 for example. He did say in his book that the key to winning is to buy a lot of tickets. What if he actually meant to say that you're better to win often with games like Pick 3 than any other lotto games out there because the odds of 1 in 1000.

                In addition, people who often win with Pick 3 are not in the news spotlight as opposed to the big lotto winners who win more than $1 Million.

                  They sometimes say that Pick-3 is the easiest of all lottery games. But they are not as easy as they sometimes appear to be. Although if a person sticks to the same numbers they pick, it will eventually pop up. The question is are you willing to play the 1-Off option that allows you to win when you miss the winning number by 1 degit? I believe that some states have the 1-off lottery play option. This might be worth looking in to because the Florida Lotto has recent presented that option....

                    I used to play 104 in Virginia every time there was a Tuesday where the day of the month, when you added them until you got a single digit, added up to 2 (i.e. the 2nd, 11th, 20th, and 29th). At the time, 104 had five wins. Three of them were on Tuesdays, and three of them were on the 2nd, 11th, 20th, or 29th. 

                    Tue. 05/02/2006, played 104 50/50, they drew 414.

                    Tue. 03/20/2007, played 104 50/50, they drew 400. I was displeased on multiple levels. Any other digit for the last digit would have been a B-day.

                    Today's winning 3-ball is going to be a number between 000 and 999.

                    In a lot of states, lotteries benefit education. That makes the REAL winners the only people who can't play!

                      darthfury78,

                      Missouri has 1-Off but not Illinois.

                      And the whammy continues, tonight I had 150 and the draw was 715.

                      Bang Head

                        I remember playing Cash-3 in 1992 with the numbers 1-2-5 straight on a $5.00 wager. After a while, I heard that Play-4 paid $5000 straight. Thus, I decided to switch instead of increasing my wager. The moment I switched to Play-4, my numbers on Cash-3 popped up. I wished I saw that Play-4 was really a $10 Cash-3 Lotto ticket. I think that best way to ever win the lottery is by playing Cash-3 with the same number set straight on multiple tickets. Imagine if you wager $1000 on the game with one set of numbers straight? That's $500K. But I do not think that anyone has ever played the game like that.

                          And on it goes, played 773 tonight (straight box) on nothing but a gut hunch.

                          results?

                            Coin Toss,

                            That game will drive you nuts.

                            Of course, I like to play Pick 4. I'm sitting here right now wondering if I want to drop $5 or $10 on one number for 25k or 50k. The odds are sooooooo enticing.

                            Then when I lose, I tell myself I've lost my mind. LOL.

                            CAN'T WIN IF YOU'RE NOT IN

                            A DOLLAR AND A DREAM (OR $2)
