Interesting question and posts, everyone!   Found Lottery Post about a year ago, and then,with the help of some great tips from serious players like WinD, Lantern and many others here, I began to track and play the Georgia game in earnest.... Got some nice wins, but I was losing more than I was winning, so I stopped playing altogether several months ago. Worked two jobs for 6 months to build my "bank" back up.... Then, four weeks ago, I decided it was time to quit my second job, and I've been spending most of my free time since then tracking, re-studying and just watching the Georgia merged game.... Now, with lots of help from P3/4Lotto, Versabet 3/4 and The Crunch software programs (combined with a bunch of different unique ways to track draws that I've discovered on my own through much trial and error), I have finally almost settled on that one personal strategy that I'm certain will consistently pay off much more than it costs..... Still not quite there yet, but I should be ready to start playing again, and posting my GA merged plays, within the next couple of weeks. Hope to see all of y'all at the bank...lol!

    Peach since it is hard to win often, then the next best thing is to try to win straight, to take any boxed numbers or combos and before you play them try to arrange them in straight-order that way when you do win even if not often you will still make some money or at least come even, work on ways or a way of arranging the numbers for straight wins.

    Straight that's where the money is, get your combos in any way that you might, yes even boxed if you want and once you have them, then arrange them for straight wins this will be easier for doubles and harder for singles, because doubles are only 3-way numbers and singles are 6 way numbers, for doulbles once you eliminate 1 of the 3 possible ways, then you are left with only 2 possible ways and when you play 1 of the 2 ways left you then have a 50/50 chance of winning straight with your doubles, but on doubles you should very often ve able to narrow the doubles down to just the 1 straight combination out of the 3 possible ones.

    As to singles maybe the best that you can do is pick the 3 best or most possible combinations out of the 6 that there are and play 1 of the 3 for a straight chance of maybe about 33%, if you could narrow them down to only 2 combinations out of the 6 possible ones then you would have a 50% of winning straight with the combo(s).

    This repositioning of the digits will have to be done individualy for every single number or combo just to be sure and will take some time depending on how many combos or numbers you are going to play, as I said doubles should be easier, since you are maybe using filters it might then be easier for you to do, because the filters themselves might already do some of the work for you, but you might still need to do some individual work on every single combo that is left after you do your work-out.

    Patience, practice and a lot of thinking and time should help.

    $ Good $ Luck $ To $ You $. And take your time, there is no rush at all.

      If you can maybe also try to play pick 3 and 4 online and don't be afraid of computerized draws, they are just as good or even much better than ping pong balls draws. (I think much better).

      Look for the states that have them and play those more than the others.

        I agree with alot of the people here on this post,  I play because I like numbers, I like looking where everybody isn't....and it gets my curosity going when people tell me that I can't win......tell me I cant do something (WITHIN THE LEGAL LIMITS) and you have my attention, and i'll have fun trying to prove you wrong.....

            I use some of the funds that I previously gave to charities since the lottery is a device to fund the school system.  In that way, I'm not diverting any money that I can't afford to lose or that was intended for another purpose.  I try to win about half of the money that I pay in while I wait for the big prize.

                Lantern,                                                                                        Just a quick post to let you know how much I appreciated  your detailed, in-depth, and well thought out reaction to those earlier ramblings of mine. Sure gave me and any other pick3 players who checked out this thread some really terrific food for thought. Great explanation of your "straights" strategy, and how you arrived at it. Excellent advice on all counts! Thanks again for all that you've done,  and continue to do, to help me and others.

                  After your responce I feel obligated to try to tell you more:

                  First of all, filters don't work every single time, they might fail much more often than they work, so that's a very good reason to try to win straight instead of box, because using filters you might not win often enough, maybe only 20% to 35% at best depending how good you are at predicting which filters might work best for the very next draw of the particular state lottery or lotteries that you want to play next.

                  Study the past draws of the state or states that you want to play, check the filters on past draws first and see what works and what does not, do this for many past draws, because what worked for one draw might not work for the next and what didn't work for a particular draw might work for another, try to determine which filters work best overall and how often they might work and see then if you can predict which filters might work best for particular draws after much practice and study.

                  More to come on the next post:

                    I'm on disability and been thru life's downtimes. I play cos I feel millions of dollars is the only way I can be "happiest".. maybe not exactly happy, but "happiest".

                    I sorta think it's all a semi-scam also. If the monies fund the school systems, then a few years ago, why was there a school/schools holding class in bathrooms, cos the classroom walls were deteriorating with harmful materials? That's only just one example I heard in the news. Anyway, I think there really are real winners.. normal people just like you and me.. but that the Lotto big-wigs controlling the supposed unbias drawing machine lets a "certain ticket" win the jackpot here and there. The times where there is no jackpot winner.. well where that money goes is beyond me. We're talking about A LOT of money. Why is the country's deficit still so high? Hmm

                    Well I hope for the best, and that that "certain ticket" is mine

                      As you know some states have only 1 pick 3 daily draw and others have 2 draws: early and late, also some have only pick 3 and others both: Pick 3 and pick 4, the combos and the filters will and or might behave in different ways with different state lotteries, also at different times they might behave also different for even the same state lottery and it's 1 or 2 draws, also in states with 2 pick 3 draws the filters will or might behave in different ways with each of the 2 draws.

                      Study the few last past draws for the particular game or games and see how the numbers and the filters are behaving and or working at present.

                      As I said the filters will not work every time so you have to be very carefull when using them and if you are able to position the numbers or combos to win straight, then it will not matter too much if the filters fail more than they work, because when you win you then will win straight and get very much money.

                      Here I have a list of past draws for a state, I will only list the doubles from most recent to oldest:

                      833 SDD

                      882 DDS

                      929 DSD

                      663 DDS

                      688 SDD

                      911 SDD

                      606  DSD


                      First the oldest 606= DSD=Double,Single,Double.

                      Do you see what I see? How the Double-Single pattern changes most of the time from the last double to the very next one up?

                      Do you know what that means?

                      More next: Next post: Will continue on the pick 3 forum.

                          I play to get out of debt!

                          I don't consider it gambling..as I am supporting education..with a freewill tax so to speak! in exchange I get a chance to win money..without making the freewill support to education, I don't get a chance..

                          So far been playing on/off moslty off and a little on the negative side..

                          have a great winning day!
