For those of you who are not familiar with Vtracs, there is a good explanation at http://www.compulotto.com/concept.htm.

There are a total of 125 different Vtrac numbers, 5 of which are triples, 60 doubles and 60 which contain three unique numbers.

Odd / Even

27 are all odd digits, 54 contain two odd and one even digit, 36 contain one odd and two even digits, and 8 are all even digits.

Sum of Lines

Here are the sum ranges, and the number of combinations:

9 = 19  8-10 = 55   7-11 = 85   6-12 = 105   5-13 = 117   4-14 = 123  3-15 = 125

Roots

In the traditional Pick 3, every root (with the exception of 0) has an equal probability of appearing. Not so with Vtracs. Here are the roots, and the number of combinations:

1 = 18  2 = 15  3 = 11  4 = 9  5 = 9  6 = 11  7 = 15  8 = 18  9 = 19

Repeating numbers

Given any Vtac number where all three digits are different, the probability that at least one of the digits will repeat in the next drawing is 93.6%. If the number contains a double, the probability is 78.4%. If the number is a triple, the probability is 46.8%. Overall, the probability is 77.0% [0.48*0.936] + [0.48*0.784] + [0.04*0.488].

Hope this helps.

Thanks....have heard about Vtracs and seen some email from an online friend who gets projections from a website but never understand what Vtracs were or how they were formed.

I do something similar to Vtracs and have for years to reduce the tracking to 5 instead of 10.  I pair 0-1 together...2-3, 4-5, 6-7 and 8-9 and then number the pairs 1 through 5.

Your Welcome Copycat.  By tracking the numbers in those pairs you can then track digits 1 thru 5 and apply them by  positions....1st, 2nd & 3rd.  Then determine whether the next number (1-5) will be higher or lower then the last.

Once you do this you can eliminate certain digits in a specific position....if you are shooting for the EXACT to play.

Kynge, Hope you don't mind if I copy your Part II on V-tracs here along with part I

Of the 125 Vtrac combinations, there are 35 that I call "boxed combinations". They are 111-112-113-114-115-122-123-124-125-133-134-135-144-145-155-222-223-224-225-233-234-235-244-245-255-333-334-335-344-345-355-444-445-455 and 555.

As you can see, there are 5 triples, 20 doubles and 10 with three unique numbers.

There are 10 that contain all odd digits, 12 that have two odd and one even digit, 9 that have one odd and two even digits, and 4 that contain all even digits.

The range of the sum of the numbers with the number of combinations:

9 = 5  8-10 = 13  7-11 = 21  6-12 = 27  5-13 = 31  4-14 = 33  3-15 = 35

The roots are more evenly distributed, either having 3, 4 or 5 combinations each.

Given any Vtrac number that has three unique digits, the probability that at least one number will repeat in the next drawing is 88.6%. If the number was a double, the probability is 71.4%. If the number was a triple, the probability is 42.9%. Overall, the probability is 72.2% [ 0.286*0.886] + [0.571*0.714] + [0.143*0.429].

.Kynge......didn't want them to get separated. Thanks for posting. Perhaps you could also post this information up on the Systems Forum ......that way it wouldn't vanish over the hill so quickly. Thanks again.

The only real failure .....is the failure to try.

Luck is a very rare thing....... Odds not so much.

Odds never change .....but probability does.
