POWER TRAILS FOR PICK-3 & 4

By Robert Perkis / Lotto-Logix

As published in LottoWorld Magazine.

If you enjoy the excitement of playing Pick-3 and

Pick-4 Lottery Games, you will want to add Power

Trails to your bag of tricks. Experienced Lottery

players always play several systems at the same

time, playing most on paper and one in actuality.

Victory shifts from system to system and one needs

to know which is strengthening and which is fading

away.

The popularity of Pick-3 & 4 is due to the

comparatively low odds and high payoff. In Lotto,

the prize for three correct numbers varies from

nothing, a free ticket or \$3.50 to \$5.00. In

Lottery's Pick-3 boxed, three correct numbers

pays \$40 for \$.50 and if picked straight, in the

same order as drawn, pays \$250 for \$.50. If

played Straight and Boxed for \$1 the total prize

would be \$290.

In Pick-4 boxed, four correct numbers in any

order, pays \$100 for \$.50 and if picked straight,

in the same order as drawn, pays \$2,500 for \$.50.

If played Straight/Boxed for \$1 the total prize

would be \$2,600.

In most states, the prizes are fixed at these

amounts per play. A few less sporting states are

pari-mutuel, which means they lower the prize

value if many people win with the same number.

The best way to deal with Daily Number games is to

work with the numbers being drawn now. This means

using a spread of recent drawing history from as

few as six to as many as eighteen past drawings.

Count up how often each individual digit has been

drawn within the spread of History you choose to

work with. Write how many times each digit has

been drawn next to that digit and arrange them in

order of which has won most often.

If two or more digits have each hit the same

number of times, put the oldest of them, first.

Last Seven Drawings from Oldest to Newest ...

POWER TRAILS takes you on a Semi-Random Power Walk

through the rated history you select. POWER TRAILS

gives extra weight to the strongest digits, while

playing all digits at least once. While no system

can guarantee a win, a good system can improve

your chances, over a range of drawings.

POWER TRAILS PART TWO

by Robert Perkis

"Power Trails" is a simple effective lottery

system for the Pick-3 and 4 games. When the

article I authored appeared in the April 1995

issue of LottoWorld magazine Volume 3 No.4, I

received a number of messages thanking me with

The original "Power Trails" suggested working with

a week's worth of past drawings. Counting the

number of times each digit was drawn and listing

them in their ranked order under the letters A -

J. In the case where digits are drawn the same

number of times, put the oldest drawn first.

Replace the letters with their corresponding

numbers on the chart below and play the resulting

patterns.

A              PICK-3      PICK-4

/ \             A-B-D       A-B-D-G

B   C            A-C-F       A-C-F-J

/ \ / \           B-D-G       A-B-E-I

D   E   F          B-E-I       A-C-E-H

/ \ / \ / \         C-E-H

G   H   I   J        C-F-J

Pick-3 and 4 lottery players suggested you watch for

the opportunity to try the following.

Instead of counting up the digits daily, do it

once a week and play the same sets for seven days.

Use more than seven past games, try 10, 14 or 21

days for the count up.

In the case where two or more digits were drawn

the same numbers of times, instead of putting the

oldest first, try the newest first.

In several games, players won more often with the

digits run through the "Power Trails" chart in

reversed order. Using A for the coldest digit

There has also been a number of hits found in the

smaller triangles found within the larger. ie.

A-B-C, B-D-E, B-C-E, C-E-F, D-G-H, D-H-E, E-H-I,

E-I-F and F-I-J. Watch what happens in your game

Pick-3 games often run 15, 30, 45 even 60 days

where one method is best, then reverse themselves

so that which was Hot becomes the new cold, etc.

Good fishing spots become "fished out," keep

watching for new ones to develop.

Triples, ie. 7-7-7 are often a signal patterns are

about to change. These are days when it may be

better not to play at all. Money saved is just as

good as money won and could change you from a

break even player to a profit player.

Good Luck to you. Lotto-Logix

Tip of the hat to Larry G. and Rick G. of Maybell.com

fame for the following addition . . .

THIS VERISON WAS MY MODIFIED VERSION...THE ORG. VER LINK

IS PROVIDED TO ASSURE THE AUTHOR HIS DO CREDIT...! IF YOU

LIVE IN A STATE WHERE YOU CAN PLAY FRONT PAIR,BACK PAIR,

SPLIT PAIR THIS IS THE SYSTEM FOR YOU.

I use a number of different systems... we will do this one

together. I like this one because you will be using all 10

numbers. A lot of times it will give you a long-shot number

straight. I would say this system will give you a hit once

every 7 to 10 days. Front pair & Back pair frequently.

The system:

A B C D E F G H I J

The letters above represent the order we will place our

numbers under. Looking atYOUR STATES graph page you will

determine which numbers are hot...from the hottest to the

coldest. If you really get into it..do it backwards.

For now I will assign numbers to the above Letters.

A-B-C-D-E-F-G-H-I-J

3 2 4 6 8 9 5 7 1 0 FROM HOT TO COLD. YESTERDAYS EXAMPLE:

9 5 2 3 4 6 0 7 8 1

0 9 2 3 6 5 4 7 8 1

ABD ABE ABG ABI ACJ ACE ACF ACH BDG BEH CEI CFJ

NOW UNDER THE LETTERS ABOVE YOU WILL PLACE YOUR NUMBERS

ABD =326 953 093

ABE =328 954 096

ABG =325 950 094

ABI =321 958 098

ACJ =340 921 021

ACE =348 924 026

ACF =349 926 025

ACH =347 927 027

BDG =265 530 934

BEH =287 547 967 X

CEI =481 248 268

CFJ =490 261 250

BEI =281 548 968

CEH =487 247 267

Test number 2.. assign numbers to the following:

ABD..ACF..BDG..BEI..CEH..CFJ

P.S. LOOK AT THE ORIGINAL THERE IS MORE BACK-GROUND

INFORMATION.{THANKS}

As LARRY G. mentioned, I have dabbled with Power Trails

before and want to pass on a couple of observations I

made. It's a great system and I would recommend it to

anyone. It get's a lot of straight hits. Like LARRY G.,

I found a short history works best. I was using 12 draws.

The most productive 'letters' were in the following formats:

For 2 picks: ABC-CDE

For 5 picks: ABC-ABD-ACD-BCD-CDE

For 10 picks, box A-C-D-E-H or A-B-C-D-E

For 20 picks, box A-C-D-E-H-J

When arranging my A through J, I went from hottest to coldest,

ties going to least recently played.

I found the letter 'H' to come in most often.

I hope this helps a Power Trail player somewhere!

Tntea, thanks for posting Bob's Power Trail system.  I'm sure it will help the "newbies' get a start on the game.

I haven't tried it yet, but if you do your corresponding-numbers study with Power Trails you could come up with even more winners.

Thanks for the post!

You are welcome.

I went back in forum and read some posts back in March.. I noticed where Lucky had post using basically the same method as Power Trail but he was using inner triangles to get numbers.. I am going to check and see how that falls in the next couple days.   I would love to hit once a week using any method.. lol wouldn't we all?

Tntea, If we could hit straight once a week, I have a betting plan that could let us retire...just need the wins first!

Will trade betting plan for winning plan...lol

Couldn't find my betting plan on the computer, so I'm going to try to recreate it from memory:

If you can achieve a straight on average once every 13 draws, which is a week's mid. and eve. draws in most states, then you increase your bet by one unit after a win.  So if you are betting .50 straight and get a hit, you increase your straight bet to \$1 and start your 13 draws betting all over again at \$1.  If you don't win in that time then you decrease your bet by one unit (.50).  If you happen to hit again before your 13 game limit, then you increase your bet to \$1.50 straight....and continue in this up .50 / down  .50 fashion after a win or 13 straight losses.

Theory is that you're betting half of your winnings on your next win, and saving your money during the losing streaks.

Worked for me years ago and I ended up winning \$3700 instead of the \$1250 I would have won using flat betting and this was in a 6-week period....(wish I could re-create that situation, but since we're talking about Power-Trails, that's how I got the 5 straights....maybe I should re-visit that cash cow!!!)

Just an old horse racing enthusiast's two cents worth.  If you're winning, adjust your bet up by one unit till you've lost half your winnings, then go back a notch in your betting units...if you lose another 13 games, decrease your betting unit again.

Hi. I have been using it for the pick 3 and 4 here in Mass. It can get you something, I noticed but, not a lot. Maybe I'm using it wrong or maybe because I'm using it for the Thoughest State in the Country, I don't know exactly, but it seems good. I need more tips on it. anything will help. Thanks a lot!

I use this power trail method for every pick 3 and 4 game. I have found that you have to learn how to read it it dosen't always hit in the abdg acfj etc. etc. for pick 4 games but if you familiarize with it and be willing to flip/flop and or criss/cross and reverse the numbers until they work for you. You just might get a hit.

NOLUCKYET i sent you PMs about this method and tried to explain if you use it in the order that it is laid out that you might or not get a hit this week this month this year. Do some back tracking with it and modify it to suit your purposes. However if you use it exactly as it's laid out sooner or later it will hit the law of averages is in play here. If a pick 4 is worth 5000 bucks and you play 5 pick 4 numbers in the order laid out every day you will hit someday. Hopefully within 1000 days. As far as I know there is no more to it then what is written above.

Down Play on Power Trails is that it offers no chance for Doubles.  Doubles kill you.

As for having so many numbers.. members are teaching me how to use the sum/root... and the odd/even to narrow my choices.

visit one of Lucky's old post to get some idea of how to pick the triangles..

It hit tonight in TN.. it was CEI.. unfortunately I played CEF...  Missed by one number and could have pocketed \$1290 bucks.. I am closer now... Not a sore loser

NoLuckYet ready to give up after only a week. Just what do you expect from your experience with lottery playing. There is no magic bullet the principal works with power trails. You have to be patent enough to sit on it and work it until it pays off. nobody is hitting the lottery every day playing only 5 picks and those that do play heavy also loose heavy. Your state pays on 2/3and 4 numbers. on the pick 4 game. I know in my heart that the power trails will capture at least 2/3 numbers many days. It's the fourth number that is the hardest this is where you have to apply your gut feeling if three numbers look good add the fourth number from some other position in the triangle.

no luck yet you didn't even need power trails for last nights numbers.

3057 hit on 7/19

2998 hit on 7/20

0975 hit on 7/21

5401 hit on 7/22

9945 hit on 7/23/04

remember we said that doubles hit almost every three days. Just looking at your last 4 days history gives clues to what to play many times 2 numbers will carry over to the next draw.

Now i ain't gonna say i would have play the 9945 but i definitely would have written it down for consideration i wouldn't expect the same double 9's to hit so soon but it dose happen and did happen. The trick is to spot these occurrences and act on them.

I did some back tracking on power trails for Mass and although there were no straight hits there were a few close calls when the numbers were reversed/putting the coldest numbers first in the triangle. Brian has posted some numbers on the pick 4 board for mass and they look fairly good for today. Do a power trails using 10 past hits and let me know what you come up with. Some of the numbers should be close to what brian posted.

hi first let me tell noluckyet that tonights number was 4 5 6 and it was the c f j in the power trail. Unfortunately I did not have it as i played it on paper for the first time. My question is am I correct in saying that you cannot play double numbers using power trails and here in Mass. we get a lot of double numbers. By the way I used the last 7 days input. I can post sun numbers here for all to watch. Here they are; 9 0 4 -9 5 2 -0 4 3 -0 1 6 -5 1 7 -5 2 8 . Good luck to all
