Can Pick 3 Numbers and Pick 4 Numbers Help Find Winners For Each Other?

Every Pick 3 and Pick 4 Number is drawn independently of each other based on the defined mathematical rule of random drawings. Within each lottery each drawing is independent and separate from each other. The drawn winning numbers are not related according to the mathematical laws of numbers. So why do I ask this question?

Every Pick 3 and Pick 4 player struggles to discover systems and methods to find and play the next winning number. Some people, like myself, believe that lottery numbers are related. In studying lottery numbers for two decades I have come to understand how some Pick 3 lottery numbers are connected to each other. Similarly I have seen the same things within the Pick 4 Lottery as well.

Like learning a new language, one has to begin to think in images and words of that second language. As a lottery player one needs to understand the behavior and habits of the numbers or digits — when referring to the individual three or four numbers that make up the winning Pick 3 or Pick 4 number.

I write about “reading the numbers” to understand how they are connected to each other. Discover strategies that formulate these connections within each lottery system.

In addition to the mathematical laws of random selection of numbers and digits, lottery player also point out that the different types of drawing systems – traditional ball drawings and computerized drawings further add to the idea of the separateness of the numbers. It’s these thought processes which make it hard for a lottery player to pick the winning numbers from drawing to drawing and help the State Lotteries continue to make money year after year.

To add more confusion to the mix I ask this question — ‘Can Pick 3 and Pick 4 numbers help find winners for each other?’ With all the reasons supporting the ideas for the non-related separateness of numbers the question is ludicrous or just plain stupid.

As one who tracks both the Pick 3 and Pick 4 Lotteries I came across the following Pick 3 and Pick 4 results in New Jersey on the evening of October 28, 2010. The Pick 3 and Pick 4 results were 206 and 1260. Being a person who is constantly studying the connections of numbers, these results jumped out at me. The reality of these drawings is that they are useless, because they were drawn in the same drawing time.

But what if one of them preceded the other, would a lottery player be able to benefit from such a situation? This is what I discovered in an attempt to answer the question.

In the Missouri Lottery on November 1 – 2, 2010, 041 and 1004 were drawn and on November 3 – 4, 2010, 958 and 859 were drawn. In the PA Lottery from Midday to Evening 443 and 3744 were drawn on November 2nd. In the Kentucky Pick 3 and Pick 4 the results were 11.2.2010 Midday 907, 11.3.2010 Midday 1409, and Evening 409 & 0579. In Michigan Daily lotteries on 11.2.2010 and 11.3.2010, respectively, 205 and 3052 were the winning numbers. During these same days North Carolina Lottery produced 451 on November 2nd and 4415 on the 3rd.

And, it continues. Arkansas Pick 3 & 4 Lotteries on November 4th and 5th produced 546 and 6745. In the NY Win 4 and Numbers on 11.5.2010 and 11.6.2010 the winning numbers were 0453 and 503. In the Ohio Pick 3 and 4 Lotteries the following November dates and draws included 11.3 – 1875, 11.5 – 158, 11.7 – 175, 11.8 – 5718, 11.9 – 982 and 11.10 – 8296. In California Daily Lotteries the results were: 11.6 – 9928, 11.9 – 8992, and 11.10 – 998.

In the Canadian Lotteries, Ontario’s Pick 3 and Pick 4 respectively, drew 0967 on 11.4, 679 on 11.5, 733 on 11.9, and 7733 on 11.10. Quebec’s La Quotidienne 3 & 4 Lotteries produced the following winners: 6281 on 11.3, 182 on 11.5, 8417 on 11.4 and 718 on 11.6.2010.

By developing a Keen Eye for numbers and learning how to read numbers and connect them systematically you become a winner in the Pick 3 and Pick 4 lotteries despite what the mathematical laws of numbers in random selection process state. These are very good results in a short time for non-related and independently separate and unconnected drawn numbers and lotteries that work together to produce winning numbers.

How to Win Lotto – The Most Effective Way to Pick Your Winning Numbers

When you consider the potential multi-million dollar fortunes on offer, picking your lotto numbers can seem like a complicated and stressful affair. Nothing could be more rewarding than cashing in a one- or two-dollar lottery ticket for a million-dollar jackpot.

You only have to scan the daily tabloids or internet search engine listings to know that everyone and their dog possesses some unique method of busting the odds or predicting the winning numbers of any lottery in the world.

In spite of the enormous odds, and regardless of the type of prize you are seeking to win, you can always depend on three universal principles* or ‘laws’ every time you play lotto – anywhere, anytime. The most important of the three ‘laws’ is this…

Lottery Numbers Are Totally Random

Lotto is a game of chance based on a random selection of numbers. It is not possible to consistently and reliably predict a random event. Full stop. End of story. Grasp this concept, and you are well on your way to lotto success.

Consequently, do not concern yourself with coupon patterns, ‘hot’ numbers, frequency statistics or other implausible good luck charms. Although interesting, these ‘systems’ have absolutely no bearing on your ability to predict the winning numbers, nor your chances of winning a prize. A random selection of numbers can not, by definition, form a pattern.

I am yet to see any computer system or software package that can reliably and consistently predict the winning numbers of any lottery in the world. It just can’t be done, nor will it ever be possible. To this end, any product that claims to analyze patterns in actual lottery results or help you predict the winning numbers of your favorite lottery is a scam. If you just heard yourself say “No they’re not,” don’t bother reading on – you’re fooling yourself, and I don’t want to waste your time any further.

By all means, go ahead and have fun using these products to choose your weekly numbers. Just never bet your house on them.

So, what IS the most effective way to pick your winning numbers?

The answer is simple. Anyway you choose.

Your choice of selections has absolutely no bearing on the numbers which will be drawn this week, or any week for that matter. To suggest otherwise is to appear gullible and stupid.

If you want to know, I always choose my numbers randomly (it’s a function of the winlottosystems wheeling software I use) because it’s easy, and I don’t have to think.

Never Change Your Numbers?

This advice is dispensed about as frequently as a new system for picking this week’s lucky numbers is announced.

But seriously, should you change your numbers, or stick with the same numbers all the time (in case they are drawn)? It’s a good question, and one that vexes more lotto players than they care to admit.

Every successful lotto player I know has two very strong points to make in this regard:

– Lottery numbers are random, so it doesn’t matter if you change your numbers or not; and

– If you are inclined to remember numbers, you are encouraged to change your numbers often (so as to avoid the anguish of seeing a set of numbers you used to play come up this week).

For the record, the most successful lotto players I know change their numbers every 5 to 10 weeks, or so. Why? Just because they like to.

Now, For Some Fun

Below is a list of techniques and strategies that I know some of my most eccentric customers have used over the years to select their weekly ‘lucky’ numbers. They are fun, unique and often crazy, but there’s one thing I can’t say about them – they are no more effective at predicting the winning numbers than me chewing bubble gum to solve algebra!

– An elderly gentleman would hide a large number of tennis balls in his backyard, and then call on his faithful dog to fetch them, one at a time as he marked his coupon.

– A woman I once knew would place a piece of paper (with the numbers of her favourite lottery written all over it) on the bottom tray of her pet budgie’s cage and choose those numbers which were “hit” by the bird’s droppings!

– Many people use a familiar bingo ball or similar ‘barrel’ to pick their numbers.

– Some resort to throwing darts at a dart board with the numbers of their favourite lottery marked on a piece of paper attached to the front.

– A neighbour would often swing at a series of numbers golf balls, and those resting closest to the ‘pin’ would be this week’s lucky numbers!

I imagine for many people, this article may have challenged you to reconsider the efficacy of the latest lottery number picking system you recently devised or invested in. If so, my advice is, ask for your money back, and stick to something more FUN and certainly RANDOM!

(b) The more games / tickets you play, the more chances you have to win.

How To Predict Consecutive Numbers In Lotto Results

Quite a few lottery results include at least one pairing of consecutive numbers. This scenario can surprise some players who have often excluded such results in their combinations.

The last three weeks of NZ Lotto give us an example of this pattern; in each line there is one pair of consecutive numbers.


7,14,17,18,25,30
4,20,22,34,36,37
13,14,27,31,38,40

Analysing The Probability Of Consecutive Numbers

The first thing we notice is that there is only one group per winning line, which gives us an indication of the probability of consecutive numbers occurring.

By definition, each pairing will include one odd and one even number. But if we look at our small sample each set includes a prime as the odd number which aids our research significantly. Let’s look at why primes figure prominently in consecutive number pairings.

Prime Numbers And Consecutive Lotto Groupings

Because there is a limited number of primes in each game we can predict how they will figure in any sequential number groups.


Primes between 1 and 40: 12
2,3,5,7,11,13,17,19,23,29,31,37

The percentage of primes in a 40 ball game is around 30% and so in any 6 ball draw we can assume on average 2 primes will be drawn.

Because we know consecutive patterns must include odd numbers, it follows that two third of these groupings will involve a prime number.

Using The Consecutive Pattern Information To Reduce Your Lottery Investment Size

With the knowledge that prime numbers will dominate sequential patterns we can use that information to exclude any lines with consecutive numbers that don’t contain primes.

By including these prime number patterns this enables us to leave out other number groups. For example if we decide on a prime to use as a consecutive then we might omit other primes in close proximity.

An additional option might be to look at “hot primes”. I noticed in the NZ Lotto sample that each prime number in the pattern was a different one so we can omit consecutive pairs that include primes that have recently been in a winning line.

Summary

This article has introduced the concept of consecutive numbers in lotto results. It concluded that the majority of these patterns will include prime numbers. This leaves plenty of scope for further research with a goal of reducing the total combination size of lotto selections.
