In a 6/49 game, there are 13,983,816 possible combinations of sixes and 18,424 combinations of threes. In the OhioSuperLotto game there have been 431 drawings so far, all which had 20 combinations of threes, 35 if you count the bonus number. That means at most, only 8,620 of those possible combinations of threes have been used or 15,085 if you count the bonus number. For the most part, when comparing newly drawn numbers with pass winners, they have matched three 5-9 times, which means that most had 11-15 combinations of threes that had never appeared in the game before. Knowing this the average player may be able to increase his chances of winning something by only playing combinations which have no combinations of threes which have appeared in the game before. I have set my RNG to pick such combinations, but to speed things up a bit and get some combinations in time to play today, I may have to settle for combinations that have matched three one or twice in the past.
Good luck Ohioplayers.
