**If you have questions about the Rings of Pi Strategy, you should probably READ Kola's original thread, or PM either Kola or Bigdaddy, since they both have more insight into a strategy that they have been using for some time. Bigdaddy may have modified Kola's original Pi system, to work better for his home state of Tennessee.**

**There are a number of other twists and nuances in the Pi Strategy, that Kola discusses in his 18 page thread. For example, Kola suggested the additional modification of using the Mirror Values of the "YYY" integers to Add to the Pi formula, which leaves you with 40 numbers to play, rather than just 9 numbers. Personally, I think 40 numbers is too many, but this "mirror" twist may allow for more accuracy in hitting the winning number.**

**Modifications to the Pi Strategy:**

**EXAMPLE # 1: Taken from page 2 of Kola's thread**: https://www.lotterypost.com/thread/241675

In **step 4** above you added the "**C**" or "**YYY**" **Integer Values**. Well now we're going to **add the constants and their Mirrors** to the value of **"(X / Pi)" = [(X / Pi) + YYY (Integers + Mirrors**].

**They are:**

**Integer >>>>>> Mirrors**

**000 >>>>>>>>> 005, 050, 500**

**111 >>>>>>>>> 116, 161, 611**

**222 >>>>>>>>> 227, 272, 722**

**333 >>>>>>>>> 338, 383, 833**

**444 >>>>>>>>> 449, 494, 944**

**555 >>>>>>>>> 550, 505, 055**

**666>>>>>>>>>> 661, 616, 166**

**777 >>>>>>>>> 772, 727, 277**

**888>>>>>>>>>> 883, 838, 388**

**999>>>>>>>>>> 994, 949, 499**

An **example** of the above.

We will use the **PI formula of (X / P ) + C**

Remember

**Tier 1 = numbers 000 to 333**. For this tier use **1PI value of 3.14159**

**Tier 2 = numbers 333 to 666**. For this tier use **2PI value of 6.28318**

**Tier 3 = numbers 666 to 999**. For this tier use **3PI value of 9.42477**

Midday Draw = 789 = Tier 3

Evening Draw = **334** = Tier 2 - Last Draw - DOMINANT DRAW

334 is the last draw and is in Tier 2. Change the Tier 3 draw of 789 into a Tier 2 draw. You do it by adding or subtracting by 333 or 666

789 - 333 = **456**

So now add 456 + 334 = 790. Divide 790 by 2 to find average number...

790/2 = **395. 395 ** = This is your "**X" variable** of the PI formula - **TIER 2 - Use 2Pi**

**(X / 2Pi)** = 395/6.28318 = 62.866

**Add Integers and Mirrors** to Seed Number of 62.866. This gives you 40 numbers to work with.

1. **000** + 62.866 = 62.866

2. 005 + 62.866 = 67.866

3. 050 + 62.866 = 112.866

4. 500 + 62.866 = 562.866

5. **555** + 62.866 = 617.8

6. 550 +.................= 612.8

7. 505 +................= 567.8

8. 055 +...............= 117.8

9. **111** +..................= 173.8

11. 161 +.................= 223.8

12. 611 +................= 673.8

13. **666** +..............= 728.8

14. 661 +................= 723.8

15. 616 +................= 678.8

16. 166 +.................= 228.8

17. **222** +................= 284.8

18. 227....................= 289.8

19. 272....................= 334.8

20. 722....................= 784.8

26. 338.....................= 400.8

27. 383.....................= 445.8

28. 833.....................= 894.8

29. **888**.....................= 950.8

30. 883.....................= 945.8

31. 838......................= 900.8

32. 388......................= 480.8

33. **444**......................= 506.8

34. 449......................= 511.8

35. 494......................= 556.8

36. 944......................= 1006.8

37. 994......................= 1056.8

38. 949......................= 1001.8

39. 499.......................= 561.8

40. **999**.......................= **1**06**1**.8 [This number actually works out to be **062.8** ( Add **1** to the **1, to end up with a 3 digit number).**

**Here are the additional "Mirror" Integer Values to add to [(X / Pi) + "YYYY" ] for Pick 4:**

**Taken from page 17 of Kola's thread.**

**In the Pick 4, there would be 80 circumference constants, because its a larger matrix. Here they are**:

1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. 12. 13. 14. 15. 16.

**Additional Modifications to the Pi Strategy:**

Another **Twist** that **Kola** did was to change the value of Pi, from 3.14159 to just 3.

**The 2 important updates are:** [**Taken from page 23 of** http://www.lotterypost.com/thread/245420: **Note**: [**This is a NEW 23 page thread by Kola**]

**The Pi value being used will no longer be 3.14159265. It will just be 3**. **Scandalous right**? Yeah, it rankles me too, but I have to be true to the "spirit" of the Pick 3 game as it applies in the Rings of Pi. Whimsically speaking, I'm changing Pi from an "irrational" number to a rational one, for various reasons. Also remember that in this system you increase the value of Pi the higher the ring.

so use:

Tier 1 : PI = 3

Tier 2: 2Pi = 6

Tier 3: 3Pi = 9

IMPORTANT:

The system is best used by separating midday and evening, and the basic steps are indicated above. If you want to **combine both midday and evening**, there is an extra, but important step you must follow. Let's say, for instance, you want to use the last midday and evening draw to find the next midday draw, the extra step is that you first have to **subtract** the **last draw from "999".** The result you get will be the **new last draw**. So for example:

**last draw**: evening 357 (Tier 2) [Dominant Draw]

2nd last draw: midday **725** (Tier 3)

Now subtract 357 from 999, which is

999

-357

-------

= **642 (Tier 2)** becomes the **new last draw**.

Now proceed as usual by putting **both numbers** in the **same Tier**, or rather the **2nd last draw [725 - Tier 3]** into the **new last draw's Tier [642 - Tier 2]**. **You do this by adding or subtracting 333 or 666**. In this case, **subtract 333 from 725**.

725 (Tier 3)

-333

-------

= **392 (Tier 2) = New 2nd to last draw**

Now find "**X**", which is the average number of the 2 draws and plug it into the Pi formula.

So add 392 + 642 = 1034. Find average number by dividing 1034 by 2

**X**= 1034 / 2 = **517** = **Your "X" value** - **Tier 2** - **Use New 2Pi ["6"]**

plug into formula:

**[ (x / 2Pi) + C ]**

[ (517 / 6) + C] = 86.1666 + C = "C" or "YYY" = + 111, 222, 333, 444, 555, 666, 777, 888, 999

= 86.1666 + 111 = 197.1666

" .......... " + 222 = 308.1666

and etc...

Hopefully the above was clear. The steps literally takes just a minute to do be hand. It seems long only because of the detailed instruction. Good luck!

As you can see, there are a lot of **twists and nuances** to figuring out how the **Pi System** can work best for winning in any given state. It is all matter or **trial and error**, and no particular method is right or wrong. The answer is, **whatever works best to WIN** !!!

**Kola** used **Regular Math** in his Pi Strategy, rather than **Lottery Math**. Obviously, you can try **Lottery Math**, and see if **Lottery Math** works better.

**Bigdaddy** posted that he does **not** use **Lottery Math** or "**Mirror Integer**" values. **Bigdaddy** also uses some **Pair Strategy** by **Lakerben** to filter his results. **Bigdaddy** has obviously **modified** the original **Pi Strategy**, and created **his own version** of the **Pi Strategy**, that works well in Tennessee.

You'll have to **PM** **Bigdaddy** or **Kola** for more information about any **Modifications** or **New Updates** to the **Pi Strategy**.

> Hope this helps to get people **THINKING** !!! Good Luck.
