Thanks alot Win D, but can you tell me this answer? If I know 1 number in the pick 4 lotto, how many different sets of numbers would I have to play to include all the possible combinations? Boxed and straight?          I tried to figure it out but cant, I know the odds are supposed to be 1 in 411 in matching it boxed, and 1 in 1000 in matching it strait.       Thanks big time!    Joy2

In the pick3 if you know 1 number you need 36 numbers to match any order no doubles or triples and if you know the first number the one on the left {4}58 you need 100 numbers to win straight or any order if it is number 4 then you will buy from:

400 to 499 that is 100 numbers but you have to be sure that the first number is 4 or which ever you use.

If you don't know the firsr number you have to buy 1000 numbers to win straight from 000 to 999.

On the Pick4 if you know the firsr number you have to buy 1000 to hit straight, from (4}000 to {4}999.

If you don't know the first number you have to buy 10,000 numbers to hit straight.

Comprende?

Joy2,

I don't try to Trap Pick-4 numbers..... It doesn't seem worth it to me. I would rather trap Pick-3 and put 10 times the money on that. Having said that .....this would be the simple way to play the "If you know one number game" with the Pick-4.  You can use the same chart.

For example:  On the p-3 chart you can use the first number of

012 and simply combine it with the 7 missing numbers(3456789)

Repeat this all the way down ....for all 36 times using the          missing numbers of that number.

0123  0124  012 0126  0127  0128  0129

So.....instead of each number having 36 of the 6 way options under  each Digit... you will now have 36x7= or 252 of the 24 way options under each number !

This seems alittle much .....huh? I hate the times I hit a Pick-4 and then you still have to spin another 24 number wheel.....to hit it straight.

Lots of Luck........Lots

Win d

That brings me to this.

In the pick3, if you know 1 number, but you don't know in which position it will come out.

And you want to hit straight, first get the 36 numbers from above for that number, then make 5 more numbers from everyone of those numbers for a total of 36x6=216, for example:

0 1 2,021,120,102,210,201

And do the same with everyone of the 36 numbers.

Maybe this will give Joy2 some ideas.
