We're tracking Pick3 sales now - we'll know first hand if the TLC made the right decision to have two Pick3 draws per day. Time will tell! To see total Pick3 sales and payouts, click here.
5-8-02 - 11:00 PM - From Don - After the drawing - To the lottoreport.com: As I wrote about the change in the equilibrium of the stock market yesterday and how traditional trends are being broken we saw today that trends almost always seek a degree of moderation and normalcy.
It is my hope that everyone ventured to play at least one of the 30 potential outcomes I have talked about, including 277. I think my writing about this play has been extensive and at times, overwhelming to the audience with minutia.
5-7-02 - 11:00 AM - From Don - To the lottoreport.com: The Pick3 game has existed in various forms for many years. When you make a wager on the game both your potential winnings and losses are known. Your losses usually are equivalent to 100% of your wager and your winnings are in relationship to the aggressiveness of your wager. In the wide array of what is sometime considered speculative, the Pick3 game would be listed as having a high risk or reward ratio.
5-5-02 - 5:20 PM - From Don -To the lottoreport.com: On May 4, the correct Pick3 number in the night drawing was 799.
5-3-02 - 5:30 PM - From Don - To the lottoreport.com: On May 2, 2002, the correct winning number in the Pick3 NIGHT drawing was 292. I talked about the emergence of a triple digit and possibly a 9 being contained in the number. The good news is that this particular number had no relevance to my recommendation except enhance it. The 3 most recent outcomes in the Pick 3 NIGHT drawing were double digits. Since there are 720 combination type numbers I always have strong preference for combination type numbers after 3 double digits occur. Unfortunately, as we know there are 120 combination type numbers that can occur. This means I must eliminate at least 80 of them to double my return. That will only provide me with a 50% return even though I eliminated 67% of the numbers. (not including double digits)
5-2-02 - 1:30 PM - From Don - To the lottoreport.com: In regards to my last message, no Dawn, I don't want anything. I am very good at recognizing effort that is incredible and worthy of comment.
Will we get another aberration or will the statistics fall in line as they have for the last 2 years? If you think they will continue as they should, the number 959 should be added to the list.
However, when I see something happening in the game that should not be happening, I have often seen the occurrence of a triple digit. That's why I continue to recommend the 17 numbers chosen with a favorite of 777. I wish the readers good fortune. Don
5-1-02 - 9:10 AM - From Don -To the readers of lottoreport.com: When I read lottoreport.com I am amazed at the amount of work and knowledge that goes into it. To keep track of all the games, changes, correct numbers, publishing enhancements, and computer expertise must be an incredibly difficult task. So, I am continually motivated by the incredible work ethic that goes into the lottoreport in selecting a great play for it's readers. (OK Don, what do you want?)
4-30-02 - 12:45 PM - From Dawn - Don called and said to stay with the same play he posted yesterday. Good luck.
4-29-02 - 8:10 AM - From Don - To the lottoreport.com: In reviewing all 30 numbers with 77 and 59 and 68 in them, I have come up with seventeen (17) I prefer. I would recommend playing one of them.
So although one coin flip was an independent event and had an outcome you can not make a conclusion until the results are measured over time.
In evaluating this recommendation, I find the numbers given to be outstanding numbers and this play is certainly becoming one of the more outstanding Pick3 plays you will find.
I wish everyone luck and good health! Don
(From Dawn: I posted a total of 4 messages yesterday. If you haven't read them, please do.)
2nd Set of Messages Posted on 4-28-02 - 10:20 PM - From Don - To the lottoreport.com: Tomorrow, April 29th, the pick 3 game will be played twice a day. All the old tickets have been removed and new play slips are at the stores.
On the back of the play slip you will notice that selecting 1 exact number is 1000 to 1 yet returns $500. The odds listed for any order are 167 to 1 yet the return is 80 to 1. Thus, if all numbers are played exact by 1000 players the game will receive a guaranteed profit!!! Thus, by having 2 games per day , they will possibly gain more revenue and thus more profit. It is an absolute assurance that the more revenue the game takes in, the more profit they will receive.
In conclusion, when playing my recommendations, mark the box indicating NIGHT first. Then mark the box marked exact order OR any order as I do not recommend any other form of play. Never mark the multi draw box either. Lets say you wanted to play one of my current recommendations like 259.
You could mark, night, any order, 2-9-5 for $.50. If you won, you would win $40. But if you took 2 play slips and marked all combinations of 295 such as 295, 259, 592, 529, 952, 925 and marked exact it would cost $3 but you would win $250. You will note that you are wagering 6 times more so the payout should be $240 but you gain an extra $10 return by playing exact. I'm not sure if they had that in mind when they devised the play slip or not.
People tell me, Don, why can't I play exact any on your play. Mainly, because you are buying numbers I sometimes don't prefer. On this play, it's not as relevant because I like all numbers with 77, 68, or 59 in them. Some I prefer more than others as I have mentioned. I intend to list the numbers again in the morning in this generous space Dawn has provided.
I wish everyone great success! Don
From Dawn - Don and I disagree about covering the stats on the Pick3 game. So, we're going to sit back and see what happens over time to see what effect the day drawing has on the game. I still plan to move my plays to Lousiana as soon as I'm fully recovered from the surgery I had. In the meantime, I personally won't be playing the Texas Pick3 anymore but will continue posting this play for whoever wants to play. Good luck to those of you who play.
1st message posted on 4-28-02 - 12:10 PM - From Dawn - As most of you already know, tomorrow the TLC starts the two (2) Pick3 draws per day. It is my opinion, this is very bad news for those of us who love to play and especially when we're in the middle of one of Don's plays. A play that I feel very strongly about it being a winner. I know why Don has this play posted and my stats agree with his. Anyway, the problem as I see it is that the TLC is using the same balls and the same machines so I don't think it would be wise to count the noon drawing as a "separate" drawing - I know that's what many of ya'll wanted us to do with our plays. If the TLC had bought new machines and new balls for the noon drawing, we could have done this. But they didn't. So we have to deal with the facts as they are - This is the same situation as when they increased the Cash5 draws from 2 draws to 4 draws per week. How many of you kept separate stats on the Cash 5? And when they increase those draws to 6 times per week in July, are you going to keep separate stats on those new draws too? FYI - I'll keep the stats, but I quit playing Cash 5 Friday when I heard how the Commissioners voted.
Now, I have just sent Don a message and will consider his input on the subject and I will post his thoughts on the matter too. I intended to discuss this with him before now, but the truth is, I've not been feeling well this week and kept putting it off. I did receive a message from Don this morning and I will post it below my message, but don't buy your Pick3 tickets until you've thought this though and hear what he has to say. I'll post more when I hear from Don. None of us want to be enticed to play more than what our pocket books allow. I certainly won't be a party to that. Don & I both feel bad enough when the plays don't come in as it is. Now here's Don's message:
4-28-02 - From Don - To the readers of lottoreport.com: Last nights number was 5-0-2. And although 0-5-9 resembles 502 (and 2-9-5 too Don), my writing yesterday was not much of a prediction. I had a 72% chance of being correct on the combination number and a 29% chance of being correct on the group of 64 numbers that 502 was in. I continue to be incorrect because the 59, 68, 77 is not contained in the number as all of my outcomes do.
2nd Message Posted on 4-27-02 - 4:00 PM - From Don - To the readers of lottoreport.com: For Saturday, April 27th, the following statistics are available about the pick 3 game. 778 and 779 are excellent double digits to play.
4-27-02 - 12:45 AM - From Don -To the readers of lottoreport.com: As the readers know, I have recommended 6 base numbers out of 220 during play 18. The most 2 recent outcomes were 7-4-9 and one of my recommendations is 7-7-9. Another of my recommendations is 2-8-6 and last nights number was 2-7-6. The correct outcome 2-7-6 had many of the elements I am looking for EXCEPT for the 77 or 59 or 68 being contained in the number. I am going to review the entirety of the recommendations and may have to derive new numbers HOWEVER all the numbers preferred WILL contain 77 or 59 or 68. Although recent forecasting has not been as accurate as is optimal, I see the lack of the primary indicator arriving as a great opportunity to win on multiple tickets in the near future. I hope to have the absolute best recommendations for you soon but still conclude that any number with those digits are an outstanding play, one of the more outstanding plays you will ever find in the pick 3 game. Don
4-25-02 - 11:30 AM - From Don - To the readers of lottoreport.com: I believe anything relative to numbers and forecasting numbers is both fascinating and frustrating at times. This is one of those times as last nights result of 8-7-9 was NOT 7-7-9 OR 8-7-7. I continue to recommend the same numbers. Best Regards, Don
4-24-02 - 8:00 AM - From Don -To the readers of lottoreport.com: When I'm not looking at statistics, I enjoy reading. Right now, there are many experts writing about the stock market and investments because a number of trends have been broken and new trends developed. However, the goal of most financial advisors is to provide real good advice to as many people as possible with a low cost. The question then becomes, to what extent can the recipient of the advice tell whether it's good? Does the giver of the advice have a conflict of interest or get paid more based on how people react to their recommendation? Will the economics of the recommendation provide the investor a good chance for success just once or over and over again?
4-23-02 - 11:15 AM - From Don - To the readers of lottoreport.com: The emergence of 007 leads me slightly back towards the combination type number I have recommended, 259 and 268 but any number with 77,59, or 68 is an excellent play. Although that seems like many numbers (30 any type numbers) those outcomes only represent 5 of 100 pair outcomes. Thus, I have a 95% chance of being incorrect on that recommendation. I continue to assess the absolute best play for readers and still believe the 4 recommendations are excellent plays. Good Luck. Don
4-22-02 - 9:50 AM - From Don -To the lottoreport.com: Yes, 6-6-4 was the correct result on Saturday April 20th. That was not one of my recommendations so 2 days of Pick 3 play have not been successful.
4-20-02 - 5 PM - From Don - If you played day number 1 of recommendation 18 you lost as the correct winning number was 504. The only relevance that 504 has to my previous 4 recommendations is that I favor the numbers with 77 in them slightly more than the 59 and 68 outcomes. I do worry about the emergence of 995 and 668 and 886 too as they are not listed directly in my four recommendations.
Original Play - April 19, 2002 - To the readers of lottoreport.com: Many people perform an assessment of their finances around April 15th and income tax day. They make resolutions and assess their investments and economic strategies for the next tax year.
I often study a historical account of my recommendations and try to develop strategies to improve. I look at trends relative to profits. Playing prediction #17 was a LOSING proposition. There is no sense equivocating about it. In the Pick 3 game you must have the correct NUMBER and the correct DAY. In this case, my writing of March 26th is very relevant to future predictions in that an assessment must be made whether to continue using the same system.
A summary of that writing or system follows. In the last six outcomes in the Pick 3 game I have recommended 393, 772, 663, 668 and 599. The correct outcomes during that time were 893, 093, 172, 363, 667 and 994. I also went on to recommend 10 any numbers out of 220 possible outcomes, one being 796 which occurred, as we know now, on April 6th and April 15th. Also, on March 26th, I recommended the exact play of 7-9-0. We know now that 6-9-0 occurred on March 29th and the number 7-9-6 occurred exact with the 79, 97, 88 in the first 2 digits as I discussed during prediction #17. So, of the 2 elements necessary to obtain profits, the NUMBER and the DAY, many of the correct elements of the correct number occurred but NOT the correct DAY.
Beginning April 19th, 2002, I have selected a profile of 30 outcomes on an any wager. They all have the digits 77 or 59 or 68 in them. Since there are 220 outcomes I have about a 7% chance of accuracy of that prediction. The numbers I prefer with 77 or 59 or 68 in them are 259, 268 and 778 and 779. There are 982 other numbers that can arrive. I wish you great success and good health! Don
