Don's 49th Prediction Don's 49th Play -
Play Starts 7/26/05 We recommend that you NOT purchase Sept 24, 2005 - From Dawn - Yes, Don's play is over! This play took a long time to come in but the pair "69" came in 9/22/05. August 26, 2005 - 9:45 PM - From Don - Todays number was 6-8-9 and as I mentioned in the "lost" mail the 69 and 78 had a chance to repeat IN the number but the optimal play was x-6-9,x-9-6,x-7-8, or x-8-7. There is a valid reason for this. Lets say I evaluate the each pair with a variable from 1 to 10 with 10 being the time to play. In this case, the front pair is 2 and the back pair is 10 and the split pair is 5. Even though, the pair group arrived in the number it is because on a cumulative basis the group is still too high. The back pair has now ascended into new territory which on a scale of 10 is about 15. Therefore, even though a profile arrived (in this case 69-78) the mentioned outcomes are absolutely fabulous plays. Thanks for reading lottoreport.com. Dawn, try to stay cool August 25, 2005 - From Dawn - Don sent a message for ya'll last night but I can't post it because I accidentally deleted it. My excuse ... yesterday morning our compressor burned up and we were without A/C until 10 pm last night. I did good to post last nights results in the heat - ya'll have no idea how lucky you are that I'm so dedicated! Or maybe I'm just stupid! :)) At any rate, I did read his message and I do know what he said. The bottom line is that he said, and I agree with him, the 69/96 or 78/87 still needs to come as the last two digits. The outcome of yesterdays draw - 936 - does not alter his prediction. He suggests continuing the play. YOU pick the first digit - he has no favorites. We're both aware that this play has taken a long time and probably longer than we should have kept it alive, but the truth is, we need to see one of the above pairs in the day drawing. I do agree with Don that this is the best calculated play - for whatever that is worth! Good luck. August 20, 2005 - 2nd message (PM) - From Don - To the lottoreport.com: I have written a column for some duration on this web-site. I believe that statistics can determine a "random number" in advance and this subject is of course controversial in a mathematical sense. The pick 3 game is such a difficult game to forecast a correct outcome because the odds strongly favor the house or in this case the state. In conclusion, on a personal note, I am very thrilled today that a long and difficult project is again validated. Thank you for reading lottoreport.com. Don August 20, 2005 - 1st message (AM) - From Don - To the lottoreport.com: The correct number on 8/19/05 in the day game was 5-7-1. This outcome had three different digits and the 7 in the center position which was a prime likelihood. This does diminish the 78 or 69 potential somewhat in that the back pair could be either 78 or 87 ot 69 or 96 as opposed to my favorite selection of x-7-8. So, these two pair groups represent a great speculation in the exact selection. Also, please note that if you play say, "9-7-8 Combo," you are purchasing 6 numbers in the exact postion but I am only selecting the 78 or 87 or 69 or 96 in the back pair. Therefore, you would be purchasing selections NOT in the profile. Also, do not disregard the previously mentioned 2-x-0 and 1x1 and 0-x-2. Best of Luck. Don August 13, 2005 - From Don - To the lottoreport.com: So, the totality of the outcomes are x-6-9 or x-9-6 or x7-8 or x-8-7. Of those 4 outcomes, I strongly favor the x-7-8 due to the positional arrangement of the 7 in the center position in combination with the 7 being a great speculation of being in a number with three different digits AND arriving in the CENTER position. Although the 78 and 69 could return in the number making a combo wager appropriate, the best speculation is x-7-8 which has (at the most) 10 chances in 1000 or 990 chances out of 1000 to lose. The back pair of 78 and 69 are at a statistical high in both the night and day game. Trying to be as specific as possible, the correct outcome could be x-7-8 or x-8-7 or x-6-9 or x9-6. The next highest pair group that is statistically relevant is the 0-x-2 or 2-x-0 or 1-x-1. As opposed to the 78 and 69 the 02 and 11 pair are NOT near as statistically relevant as to being in the number. However, I am NOT going to stop speculating on these statistics until they arrive as they present too great a potential for a return on investment even at this later than expected date. Best of luck in all things. Don July 29, 2005 - To the lottoreport.com: If you review the last paragraph of the information I provided for this play on 7/26/05 I said, "the 6 as the first digit in a number having three different digits is at an all time Texas high and the middle digit "7 and 4" are somewhat high statistically." As to the good news, the 78 and the 69 within the number remain excellent probabilities based on the exact same type of information I used to discover what turned out to be very accurate. I also do not want players to forget about the 1x1 and 2x0 and 0x2, all of which are exact plays and to recap - the 78 and 69 in the BACK position is the best BUT the 69 and 78 is also a great play as to being IN the number. I wish you the best of luck. Don July 28, 2005 - The lottoreport generously supplied a link to the pick 3 payouts (mentioned in yesterday's posting below). July 27, 2005 - To the lottoreport.com: I posted a play shortly before the draw yesterday and I am occassionaly glad that a play does NOT arrive so that it will give players an idea of what they intend to do. I do not throw out wild manueveurs based on my childrens birthdays. If the lottery is fair all numbers must arrive over time. I try to evaluate the TIME as the most important element before even selecting the numbers. I have reviewed these statistics (money paid to winners) and it is appalling in that the game takes in, most days, half of say $900,000 or yes, you read that right, $450,000 PER DAY. Original Play - Tuesday, July 26, 2005 - 9:55 AM - From Don - Hello to Pick 3 Players: Let's get right to the action. On a comparative basis, the DAY pick 3 game as of July 26, 2005 at 0830 presents some great opportunities. As you may know, I compare the games and try to develop conclusions about what the absolute best play might be in either game based on statistics. Here is what the statistics reveal. Selecting an exact number is always the most difficult yet the most rewarding. In combination with the back pair digits the statistical formation of 69 and 78 being within the number is also high. Thus, I conclude that playing a number with 69 or 78 in it are fantastic plays and for more speculative players, playing the formation of the exact number as I have indicated is a respectable wager. April 6, 2005 - From Don - Just Comments: The information presented by the lottoreport is always entertaining and very accurate. I especially enjoyed the story about who plays the lottery which of course is very contrary to the information I have read at the website produced by the Texas Lottery. Don's 48th Prediction Don's 48th Play -
Play Starts 3/22/05 Tuesday, March 22, 2005 - 5:15 PM - From Don - Hi to the audience of lottoreport.com! I have not written to the audience for a variety of reasons in some time yet I hope you are well and being very cautious about how you spend your very hard earned dollars. With 3571 draws that means that in 11.44 years we have a situation that has never occurred. This is unlike the fact that 999 has never occurred in that 999 represents 1 number while the profile I am about to address includes 36 numbers times 6 or 216 which is very different. When you have a profile of 36, it is large yet you have eliminated 184 other numbers or 83% of the other possible combinations. Thus, you only have a 17% chance to pick IN the correct profile. Your chances are much smaller to actually select in the 17% group of numbers which WILL be correct. |
