The California State Lottery uses 2 seprate machines for the Pick 3, Hot Spot and Fantasy 5 lottery games.. One machine uses a random number generator and the other uses a mathematical algorithym. The lottery officials determine which machine to use based on a seperate machine number drawing.

Predictability of any winning number combination is surely based on the luck of the draw. There is no program that can anylize past numbers and use those numbers to predict future winning number combinations.

Surely picking any 3 number combination has as good a chance as thorwing darts or rolling dice.

Reducing your odds of winning is a key element.

By playing the Straight/Box winning style will yield 60 total potential winning combinations if you picked 10 sets of numbers.

These sets will provide multiple combinations if you pick the Straight/Box style.

These 20 sets will give you 120 potential matching bombinations.

1 2 8, 6 9 3, 5 6 4, 0 8 6, 9 1 6

4 5 7, 2 3 5, 7 4 2, 6 2 7, 8 5 2

1 3 4, 5 7 1, 3 9 0, 6 4 8, 2 5 4

3 6 0, 5 9 7, 1 9 8, 2 6 9, 2 8 0

Hi!

Those who don't know might get confused by what you are saying.

Any pick3 single such as 123 can be put down in six ways.

123

132

213

231

312

321

So of course 20 different pick3 singles.

can be put in 120 ways, if you play straight they are 120 numbers, but if you play boxed or any order those 120 numbers are still just 20 boxed numbers and you are just wasting your money by buying all 120 of them, so what is new?

Either you play straight or any order (boxed), it does not make any sense to play these six numbers:

123

132

213

231

312

321

Straigh/Box, it would or might make sense to play 123 Straight and boxed, but only one of the six numbers and not all of them.

That the 720 straight singles can be put down as 120 any order singles is nothing new, most people here (I think)

know this.

Bye.

If I you are going to play a number straight then it's best to only play it straight and not straight/anyorder(Boxed) and if you are going to play boxed then it's best to only play it boxed.

It all depends on your number choosing technique, if you are choosing for boxed then play boxed and if you are choosing for straight then play straight.

If you are choosing boxed then choose out of the 120 boxed

singles and the 90 boxed doubles.

i disagree if you play it straight/box and miss the order you get around

\$40 dollars if you hit the right order \$300 to \$400 here in calif I normally

miss it buy one number in the wrong position and I would rather get the

\$40 bucks than nothing!!!. here the straight only pays \$400 to \$500

so the extra \$100 to \$150 you might get is not worth the playing.

good luck chris
