Don's 39th Prediction Play Starts Thursday, Jan 15, 2004 We recommend that you NOT purchase Jan 26, 2004  10:00 PM  From Don  Update to Day Play  To the lottoreport.com: The last day of play is upon us tomorrow regarding the numbers I have recommended. I am down to 4th down and no time left on the clock yet you never know in this game. As players, I know you must assess credibility based on success and that is why I sometimes hesitate to place these kinds of plays on the site as they detract from my accuracy. That's why I want to describe this play in a little more detail.Anytime a double digit is played a player has 280 chances or 90 chances when 220 outcomes of "any" are considered. Thus, a 28% chance of success. So it would seem that numbers having three different digits arrive 72% of the time but there are many more of them. (120 combo type) When a double digit begins to head towards a statistical deviation, it is a very good play. This is true because it pays more and is in a smaller group of outcomes. That was true here when the double digit did arrive within a parameter of 4 days. (none of the ones I recommended) I do have evidence that the double digit will then arrive under the four day window again following the statistical deviation that occurred and that arrived. (again, none of the ones I selected) Now, as of Monday we are on the curve of the same process occurring again. This is in combination with the 99 being what I conclude statistically, a fantastic play. However, it could go quite a bit longer. Statistics show me that chasing won't produce profits because this game doesn't pay at the true odds. Thus, although I must recommend you stop playing the game and the 99, I must also conclude it has been and continues to be an outstanding play as a number but not an outstanding play as one that could produce profits. If you played just some of the numbers I recommended and one did arrive tomorrow, you would still achieve a handsome return on capital as tomorrow will be the 11th day of play. Thus, grudginly I must advise that we stop playing the DAY draw should none of the numbers arrive tomorrow. There will be other opportunities. I wish you all success. Don Jan 23, 2004  7:20 PM  From Don  Update to Day Play  To the lottoreport.com: The double digit did occur in the Day pick 3 game today, however, out of the 280 doubles and triples the double digits I selected were not the correct ones. Due to the position of the 99, I am going to recommend we play a minimum of one more day and possibly three more. You can scroll down to view the numbers I have recommended. If a double digit does not occur in the next three days the play is over. Much success to all. Don Jan 23, 2004  No update from Don today. Message from yesterday still applicable. Jan 22, 2004  From Don  Update For DAY DRAW Play  To the lottoreport.com: Today is the last "anticipated" day I recommended play on the mentioned numbers. To the list, I want to add 399 and 355 and 335. Also, because my statistics are always fractional such as play for 3.75 days, I must continue the play for today and tomorrow. The play will only continue if a double digit arrives today or tomorrow. If that happens and it is not one of my recommendations, I will then try to decide what to do. I would also like to add some additional comments about this play from a statistical standpoint. The 99 is a great play but it has not arrived in 27 weeks in the front pair, 50 weeks in the back pair, and 40 weeks in the split pair. As a cumulative process in both the night and day, this is a Texas record. Statistically records will always be broken and that's why I never chase. I have quite a bit of evidence that you can do quite poorly if you get hard headed because your pocketbook is not deep enough and that's what the game relies on, that you will continue to come back over and over and with as much capital as possible.Selecting the actual day of the 99 occurrence would be a overwhelming statistical coup based on the odds alone (990 to 1) . However, during these last 7 days we are in a great statistical model which gives possibility for 1) a double digit to occur 2) a double digit with a 99 3) a double digit with a 5 and as of yesterday, a 3 in it. Sometime ago, a reader mentioned chaos theory which is a theory that in chaos there lies predictability to random events. This is exactly what I am expecting, that the statistics will conform to what they have done before and continue to do. Don't overlook 999 and keep reading lottoreport.com for great lottery news. Don Jan 21, 2004  No update from Don today. Message from yesterday still applicable. Jan 20, 2004  From Don  Update For DAY DRAW Play  To the lottoreport.com: The number one indicator of a double digit occurred Monday, 1/19/04, and did not have the necessary indicator of a 5 in it or the next closer indicator, a 99. When I forecast a play I try and wait until the absolute last possible day in that I want to provide players an opportunity to win immediately yet not go past the opportunity window. In this case, I expected the double digit to occur by Saturday and then have a full 6 days of play to hit one of the other indicators mentioned. We know now that the double digit occurred on Monday. Jan 19, 2004  From Don  Update For DAY DRAW Play  To the lottoreport.com: As of 1/17/2004, the DAY draw has not had a double digit drawn. Having given the players different available tactics, I believe all the strategies are still very sound. Original Play  Jan 15, 2004  From Don  For DAY DRAW  To the lottoreport.com: This is my first play in 2004 and perhaps one of the most speculative I have ever offered. In reviewing my history, I am somewhat fresh as I have only posted plays in the pick 3 game from 10/17 to 10/20 and from 12/6 through 12/17 thus playing the game a total of 14 days of the last 90. This recommendation will begin today, 1/15/04, and is for the DAY game. In yesterdays column, I provided players some insight to the tactics to be used during this 9 day period. Jan 14, 2004  From Don  Play Coming Tomorrow Unless .... To the lottoreport.com: In the last 20 weeks in the DAY pick 3 game (beginning on a Monday and ending on Saturday) there have been 11 weeks that contained a double digit including 222 and 9 that did not. There have been two weeks that did not contain any double digits in a consecutive manner and this week, beginning Monday 1/12/2004 would be the third week if no double digit occurs. Although I always prefer the very long perspective, this is a microcosm of what happens over time in the pick 3 game. Jan 13, 2004  Ooops ... From Don  Play Coming  To the lottoreport.com: First, I want to apologize to the audience for any writing errors published within this column. I always try for 100% accuracy in my writing because my programs demand the same rate of correctness. Yet, when I reread the columns after numbers are drawn I sometimes cringe at what I said in relation to the totality of the prediction. Jan 12, 2004  Editorial From Don  Play Coming  To the lottoreport.com: Thanks for reading lottoreport.com concerning the pick 3 game. If you read my final comments for 2003, they were a somewhat good analysis (we know that now) of things to come. Of course, we had the number 706 which included the pair 07 and 06. That process continued with 342 4 days later. And finally, we had the very cold number I mentioned, 748. In the DAY game, no 99 has occurred since my December writing yet it is an excellent time to play not only a 99 number but any double digit. I don't have any specific recommendations right now though as I am still concerned the play is too speculative. There may be an upcoming play here soon.I wanted to talk a little about wagering methods before entering into the 2004 recommendations I expect to forecast. Reviewing a playslip, you have boxes play a through e. In each box are the wagering types, exact, any,exact/any, and combo. Interestingly, when you play a number like 748, if you want to play all aspects of the number which are 748, 784, 847, 874, 487, 478 there is not enough room with only 5 boxes unless you check combo. A combo wager simply means all possible combinations of the number. Thus, if you play 748 combo for .50 that means .50 times 6 ways or a $3.00 wager. If you play 748 combo in this manner and are successful you win $250. If you make the same wager "any" for $3.00 you win $240. Thus, even when you "win" the state gets an unfair cut simply by your wagering method. Generally, when I make a recommendation I tell the audience what parameters I am searching for as indicators.A combo wager on my methods is always the best method unless you are playing many of numbers. By the same token, an exact/any wager is always the worst type wager because you only have ONE of the potentials of in this case the six ways the number can arrive. The only disadvantage of the combo wager is that it takes a little more capital. But, since hopefully you are avoiding the game most of the time, you will have more capital to wager when good opportunity is presented. This is certainly the case when there is a good double digit play as will exist in the day game very soon. That is because there are only 3 ways a double digit can arrive lowering the capital needed by 50%. In conclusion, keep reading lottoreport.com for great lottery news and an upcoming play. Don Dec 30, 2003  Editorial From Don  NOT A PLAY  To the lottoreport.com: I wanted to take a moment to wish all the readers a great 2004 and success in all their endeavors. As to the pick 3 game for 12/30/2003, in the Day pick 3 game the 99 all is a very speculative pair that should be considered. It is much to risky a play for me but those are the kinds many of the readers prefer. If I had to do a statistical guess, I would expect the 99 to be in the split position, thus, 9 something 9. The best indicator present to tell me what digit might be in a double digit is the 5. Thus, 599 if I had to predict one digit to go with the 99. Of course, 999 pays the most.You might also notice that in the day game, the last digit 7 has occurred 75 times while no other digit has occurred that much  not only in the final position  but any position of any other number. You might conclude that over time the remaining digits will catch up but in the meantime, if you like "hot" digits put a 7 in the number (which I would not do based on that stat alone) Interestingly, 737 occurred twice the week before last and in yesterdays outcome of 728. I am always curious about a digit that has occurred way more than the rest of the digits in only 522 data days. How much more, almost 40% from the lowest digit count of 43 in that position. Also, six days prior to the 737 occurring twice the numbers that occurred were 478  974  645  453  743  287 with 4 of the numbers having a seven in it for the week. In the night pick 3 draw, the pairs that gave indications they might offer opportunity were, prior to last nights draw, sum of 6 (06, 15, 24, 33) AND sum of 07 (16, 25, 34) AND sum of 15 (69,78). Last nights draw in the night game was 942 which eliminated the pair sum 6 and left 2 pair sums noticeable. 780 and 169 are the only numbers that will bring both of the sums to normalcy. Also, did you know that 478 and 578 and 569 are three numbers that have a total sum of 20 and have not arrived in 252 draws or about 42 weeks. If you like "cold" numbers they might be for you. (See chart for last time sums were drawn) In conclusion, those are my thoughts on the pick 3 games in Texas to conclude 2003. They are not recommendations because they are too broad and encompass too many variables. If they shape up to meet my criteria, I'll let you know. Again, I hope you have a great year and thanks for reading lottoreport.com. Don Don's 38th Prediction Play Starts Dec 6, 2003 Dec 18, 2003  CEASE PLAY  To the lottoreport.com: I cannot explain the amount of time it took for this play to arrive which culminated with the number 546. Dec 17, 2003  Update from Don regarding Dec 6 Play  To the lottoreport.com: Last nights outcome of 499 was again difficult as I am holding tickets for 496 among others. This is an example of why I recommend avoiding the game most of the time. I want to play when there are outstanding plays, so it appears I may have to play longer than I expected. Of course, this is much longer than expected and I have no statistical precedence as to what is happening. Thus, I continue to recommend the numbers mentioned in my most recent columns. Happy Holidays, Don Dec 16, 2003  Update from Don regarding Dec 6 Play To the lottoreport.com: The correct outcome in the night draw on 12/15/2003 was 636. This does not meet the criteria outlined as that number does not have 3 different digits. To sum of my recommendation, I am expecting the digit 6 in a three different digit number. I have selected the 9 as my second digit. Thus, you could have 691, 692, 693, 694, 695, 697, 698, 690. Two other numbers without the 9 in it have merit. 568 and 160. Although it is very difficult to establish an absolute favorite because I carry my mathematical formulas to 4 decimals such as 40.9876 versus 40.8888, the number 160 has every potential imaginable. In about 8 years of reviewing pick 3 games in Florida, New York, Texas, Ohio and California, I have seldom witnessed a play as good as this one from a statistical standpoint. It's a great time to play the night pick 3 game. Remember though, you still have a 95% chance to lose. Thanks for reading lottoreport.com. Don Dec 15, 2003  Update from Don regarding Dec 6 Play To the lottoreport.com: I continue to recommend the same numbers. Don Dec 13, 2003  Update from Don regarding Dec 6 Play To the lottoreport.com: I began the listed recommendation on 12/6/2003. During that time the following numbers in the night pick 3 drawn have occurred. They are 484797327208895179. I offered a time frame of 4 days in which I expected one of the recommendations to occur. Although I have not been correct on that four days, I want to provide the audience some insight into how I analyze the situation now. Dec 12, 2003  Update from Don regarding Dec 6 Play To the lottoreport.com: Last nights result of 895 was both frustrating and hopeful. The reason for this is that I am holding several tickets of 896 among others. However, I am hopeful because all the primary parameters I described did not arrive even though their is a similarity in the numbers I played and the number that arrived. This play is shaping up as one of the best plays I have ever had. How can I evaluate whether it is a great play? First, in 3172 days, the digit 6 is in the optimal position it has ever been. That doesn't mean because it has not arrived in a particular time frame it is due. It means that its relationship to all the other correct outcomes makes it significant. Since there are only 72 other possible outcomes (6 with ALL = 6 in the number, there are 9 possibilities times 8 possibilities) the maximum odds to you are 72 to 1 to win on a combo ticket 250 to 1. Dec 11, 2003  Update from Don regarding Dec 6 Play To the lottoreport.com: The result on 12/10/2003 was 208 in the Night Draw. I spoke extensively about that previously and am very disappointed in that, the audience will not have an opportunity to take advantage of a great EXACT play with that 2 in the first position of a three different digit number. As I mentioned, by placing the 2 in the first position and playing all in the next position and choosing one of 8 choices for the final digit, the audience would have been provided an 8 to 1 chance to win $500 for a $8 wager. Since this strategy had the potential to go 27 days from 12/6/2003 I wanted to err on the side of caution for the players and was hoping we could use profits from the digit 6 play to play the much more speculative EXACT play. Moving on, the digit 6 in a number having three different digits WILL NOT go 27 days without arriving. It has gone four days now since I made the recommendation. In conjunction with the previously mentioned 2, this play has now become one of the greatest COMBO or ANY plays imaginable.I want to go through exactly what I believe will happen based on statistics. Play the 6 IN the number. I am eliminating 54 of the 55 pairs by choosing the 9 to go with the 6 but I have to recommend 2 numbers besides the ones with 69 because their total sums of 7 and 19 (see chart) are important statistically. Within the scope of recommendation then are 69 all with NO 696 or 699. The 2 other numbers are 568 and 160. My absolute favorites are 569 AND 469. My number one favorite is 469 because it has three different digits with a 6, has a total sum of 19 (see chart), has what I call a span break, has the pair 69 in it and is within the 69 all category. ALL PREVIOUS numbers are to be disregarded. I think we are going to have something in our stockings before XMAS. Dec 10. 2003  Update from Don regarding Dec 6 Play  To the lottoreport.com: The last three outcomes in the pick 3 night game have been 484 and 797 and on 12/9/2003, 327. By reviewing the chart of all possible outcomes a player can readily evaluate that 3 different outcomes in those 3 days is only about 2% of all the outcomes. That means there are 217 other outcomes that did not arrive. Dec 9. 2003  Update from Don regarding Dec 6 Play  To the lottoreport.com: Since providing my picks for 12/6 the correct outcomes in the Texas Pick 3 Night Draw have been 484 and 797. Since I always attempt to select a correct day first, that is somewhat disappointing. However, I provided a 4 day window of opportunity so today and tommorrow will be important dates. Saturday, Dec 6, 2003  From Don  To the lottoreport.com: In conducting a statistical review of the Pick 3 NIGHT game there is a great opportunity to obtain profits. I specified the things to look for in my previous column. I conclude that I simply cannot wait on the 6 being in the number any longer although I expect the number will arrive in under 4 days maximum. The six can be any of the positions in the three digit number. However, The 6 with the 2 is the best statistical choice. I have no other numbers that stand out with the 26 all. You have to remember though I do not want the 2 to arrive with the six, especially in the first position (#2) because we will have a great EXACT play 2 all x. A great exact play is usually very hard to find and this will be a great play. In making a statistical comparison, this particular situation has only arrived 7 times in 3167 days, as to the particular set of circumstances I am looking for.So, in summary, we want to hit the 6. There are 36 numbers available to do that. I have chosen 4. They are 569, 568, 160, 263. After the 6 arrives in a three different digit number I will turn my attention to the digit 2 in the first position because it is much harder to predict the day even if we play 2 all x. That's how the pick 3 NIGHT game shapes up for 12/6/2003 at 1015 in the morning. I want to see you all put dollars in your pocket and this time of year is a great time for that! Best Regards, Oh, I have chosen a profile of 36 numbers which represent 16.3 % of the total outcomes. Within the 36, I have chosen 4 which represents 1.8% of the total outcomes.Thus, I have a 98% chance of being incorrect on my favorites. Keep reading lottoreport.com for updates. Don From Dawn  Jeff ceased his play as of last night, however he advised ya'll to still play the "6." It seems as though Don and Jeff both agree on the "6"  the only differences was the timing. Personally, I think I'll go with the 6 because both of my "predictors" like the 6! For a little added humor, to me, this probably means the 2 will come first because I always pick wrong! Friday, Dec 5, 2003  From Don  To the lottoreport.com: The digit "9" appeared in the Califonia Day draw in a number having three different digits yesterday. The winning number was 946. This number was not one of the four selections I placed for readers. Since, the indicator arrived, the play is now over. Keep reading lottoreport for news about the Texas Pick 3 games. Don Posted Thursday, Dec 4, 2003  From Don: To the lottoreport.com: I hope you have printed the chart provided by the lottoreport. Seldom will you find a list of ALL possible outcomes in a lottery type game. Aside from the Texas play to come, there IS a great play in the California DAY draw right now. I expect the number to have a 9 in it and contain three different digits and arrive in less than 6 days beginning today and thus ending next Wednesday. The California pick 3 draw occurs 7 days a week as opposed to Texas which is 6 days a week. The digit I favor to arrive with the 9 is the 5, 8 and 0. So, this means you have 95, 98, 90. Keep reading lottoreport.com this week for great news. Don
