Currently, close to 13,000,000 (million) people play the Pick 3 lottery game everyday. Some use birthdays, license plates, house numbers etc. when determining which numbers to play, but the vast majority of them like to use systems. It would seem every player has a system. Some pick 3 systems will do pretty well, but none of them are consistent when you back check against a states history file (i.e. the numbers that have hit). Traditionally, you find that systems get hot (meaning they frequently) but then get cold (won’t hit at all) without warning. Unfortunately, there are many unscrupulous people online selling commonly used pick 3 lottery systems and claiming that they can hit consistently. That’s consistently, as in hitting over and over again being profitable in the long run.
Now, if there really were a single system out there that could hit consistently…why would anybody sell it? Let alone tell anyone about it. Really, if you had a system and you knew you could hit the lottery and win more then you lost…you would only need a bankroll that covered the loss period and you could double or triple up on the next couple of plays, right? Well, in that example, you would be a multi-millionaire in just a few plays. What logically follows that? Retirement in the French Riviera…or…build a website, advertise it on Google and sell it for $30? Hmmmm. And this is the delusion that many Pick 3 lottery players live under. If you play, don’t get discouraged, it’s not all hopeless; there is light coming I promise, but before you can get there, you need to do a reality check.
Namely, If you play the pick 3 lottery, you must know that there is no single system out there that can hit the pick 3 or any lottery consistently enough to turn a profit long term. None! If anyone tells you different…they are lying to you. And if you have bought any of those online systems, then as much as you would hate to admit it, you know I’m telling you the truth.
Unfortunately many pick 3 players continue to deny the facts and plunk down their money just to get burned over and over again. It sickens me to see it advertised online. “Make $5000 guaranteed pick 3 system!” or “Mathematical Genius …” These are the guys that do not play pick 3, but come across an old system, dress it up and sell it for $30 – $500. No respect for the game or the players.
So what does work? Well the issue is not with the pick 3 systems in general, but specifically that no individual system can win consistently. So, the only logical way to win pick 3 lottery consistently (over the long haul) is to use multiple systems simultaneously. Whenever you use several systems together, it works as a type of validation filter and you end up with a small set of pick 3 numbers that have the highest chance of hitting. (5 – 10 combinations max.) Now, either most advanced players are nodding in agreement right now…or shaking their heads in disbelief that I just let the rest of the world catch up with this philosophy. After years of working and teaching pick 3 players, I would venture to bet it’s not the later but the former. They know exactly what I’m talking about here.
Keep it fun, and remember, it’s all about the thrill of hunting for the winning numbers in tonight’s lottery and the excitement of actually picking the right ones! The money is only a bonus. Pick 3 is winnable consistently, but you are gong to need more then “a” system…you need an EDGE.
