DEATH OF PICK 3 DIGIT ANALYSIS The irrefutable and overriding fact is that you can run a Lotto Pick 3 Game without any need to consider the identifying digits in isolation. They are only important as part of the 1,000 permutations (ordered sets) each of which uses 3 of the 10 distinguisable marks or objects with or without repetition. The marks don't have to be integers they could just as easily be dog species, shapes or colors. The starting point is not a set of 3,000 isolated objects from which a random selection is made but the set of 1,000 permutations of 3 linked objects formed from 10 distinct objects; 2,160 for the Unmatched, 810 for the Doubles and 30 for the triples. Study of digit occurrence isolated from the Triple, Double or Unmatched of which it is part is to ignore the order of the digits and is therefore seriously flawed. A single digit does not win a prize in Pick 3. Two digits do not win a prize in Pick 3. A 3 digit number can win a prize in Pick 3 in the correct order if playing straight or in any order if playing boxed. For too long the emphasis has been on a working out the digits approach. This does not work in Jackpot style Lotto games and neither does it work in Pick 3. Consider the following food for thought

Lotto Draws have no relationship to one another; the integers serve just as identifiers. Any prediction calculation on one history of draws for a same type game is just as irrelevant as another.

Here is a 50 draw Pick 3 history sample analyzed by digits:  Digit: 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 A quick perusal shows that a high relative digit count does not mean consistently a high double count. The highest digit count produced just the average double count. Let's look at the doubles. The 50 draw sample I am using here has an unusually high number of Doubles  38% instead of the expected 27%. Double: 00 11 22 33 44 55 66 77 88 99 The 5th group has an unusually high number of Doubles  70% instead of the expected 27%. The question you should ask yourself is, "What can I see in this unusual but actual (Texas) example that I can use again?" I am interested to see the interpretations from this. Any inference should be treated with caution because of the very high incidence of Doubles in the last group. Is it no Double after 40 draws is a good bet for the next 10 draws? At State payouts this would mean for your selected Double forking out 10 x 10 x 0.50 = $50 for a possible win of $80 or at 5 Dimes 10 x 10 x 0.25 = $20 for a possible win of $150. But hey, haven't we gone from digit analysis to considering the whole numbers, occurrence and absence? Regards
