How To Win The Pick 3 Lottery – ish!

August 10th, 2011   ·   Read 27 Comments...

how to win the pick 3 lotteryYes, the Pick 3 lottery is much easier to win. But as a lottery game, it pretty much sucks.

Because you might just as well be feeding your money into a slot machine.

The best you can ever hope for with most Pick 3 games is a fairly small win.

And that’s the big prize!

But those lower tier prizes arrive regular enough to keep you playing… after all, you won again this week right..?

What happens to those small wins? They’re so small, they just go back in the machine.

You Never Really Win With Pick 3

But you never win big, because there simply is no big with the Pick 3 lottery.

Sure, you can play Pick 3 just for fun. But if you’re playing for the jackpot, then you’re playing the wrong game.

For most players, one of the main reasons to play the lottery is the chance of that ‘big win’. The life changing jackpot.

Pick 3 type games can never give you that.

So What Can You Do?

The real way to win the Pick 3 lottery, is to stop playing it and choose a better game.

[They won’t advise you to do that at the lottery counter of course, or in those trashy Pick 3 lottery systems either]

But take your typical Pick 5 or 6 game. Not only do they have life changing jackpots pretty much every week. These games also have plenty of those smaller prizes too.

Now the odds are going to be tougher than they are with Pick 3 for similar smaller prizes, but they won’t be radically different.

But what you really gain is the chance of winning the bigger prizes too – at no extra cost.

The Right Game Can Make The Difference Between Winning & Losing

Wisely choosing the right game to play (for you) is the most important step any lottery player can take.

So how do you choose a better game to play?

Get my free lottery tips – and I’ll show you how exactly how, and take you through specific examples.

Don’t just play what looks the shiniest, or has the biggest jackpot when you reach the lottery terminal. Because that doesn’t make it the best game for you.

    It would be smart for OLG, for one, to drop
    the pick-3/4 games and simply offer bigger
    initial jackpots in the pick-6/7 games.

    Then again, we’re talking about a Government
    entity, so…..! 😉

    • Bridgette Williams

      I totally agree with you because you find yourself losing more money at these two games and not making any money at all. I will admit this myself, for at least three months I have been trying to win small monies with these two games and have won absolutely nothing at all. Even with the help of other software I still have no luck what so ever.

  • Darryl

    I disagree with you on that, there are a few ways to win Pick 3 regularly. The problem is (what you choose to settle for). Plus you don’t have play every day, just a few times a week. I can prove it



      Sure, it’s possible to win regularly – because the odds are much easier. But the odds are a lot easier because the prizes are a heck of a lot smaller. Pick 3 is like a slot machine – it pulls you in with lots of small wins, then you put it all back in again… There is no way to ‘beat it’, just like every lottery game – it’s luck.

    • Bridgette Williams

      Okay Darryl, what is your secret?

    • Jack Penland

      I would certainly like to hear about any way you have come across to win Pick 3 regularly.

      • LG

        Don’t hold your breath Jack :-)

        Playing every day, buying lots of tickets and frequently ‘being close’ (no such thing as close) seem to be the traits of the Pick 3 player. And most significantly forgetting that there’s a HUGE difference between winning regularly and making a profit. You can win regularly on a slot machine, but you’ll never come out far enough ahead to consider it profitable. Unless you get a lot of enjoyment from playing Pick 3, choose a better game.

    • Chris

      Can you teach me your Pick 3 techniques?

  • Harvey

    Let’s see what a Straight Win was worth in
    OLG’s Pick 3 Daily, each draw for the last week of August, keeping in mind a player might win ONE of the draws:

    If you want peanuts, try Bulk Barn 😉

  • Harvey

    What th’ heck….?!
    Can wager up to $10 on a Pick 3?!
    For that money, you could play FIVE
    Lotto 6/49 or TWO Lotto-Max!!
    Duh, one must say!

  • Bill Berg

    I agree, not much to win with the pick 3.

  • Runwiththewinners

    Playing the Pick 3 and even the Pick 4 is a total waste of time. By the time you win, it won’t even be worth it. There’s not much strategy to it either. Better to play something you won’t win as often, but when you do win it counts for something.

    Remember. Run with the winners!

  • Brian

    Some statements presented here are not true. The Pick 3 game can definitely be beaten and made worthwhile. I make from 200%-700+% ROI. The game has been cracked.


      Oh absolutely, it’s like a cash machine really – the lottery company love giving away free money to all.

      So all we have to do is send you $97 for the secret..?

    • Bryce

      I’m thinking of doing a lotto pool with pick 3, please explain the crack you figured out?

      • LG

        Honestly Bryce, he doesn’t really make a profit playing Pick 3. Nobody but the lottery company do.

        By all means do a pool, but play a game with a jackpot to make it worthwhile instead.

    I have some software that uses 2 charts and a code for each chart. If I could get the right code for each chart (which is 1 of 6) I could generate the exact 99.9% of the time. My big problem is figuring out how to come up with the right code(s). One thing I have noticed about the 10 digits that over a period of time they spread out over 4 to 8 different levels/groups, They fluctate between 5-6-7 most of the time with the average at 6. Seldom to they go to 4 or 8, For instance: 123-456-678-9…….that is only 4 groups where you have 3 digit combinations. For them to stay 4, the 9 would have to combine with 2 other digits either from the same group or 1 digit from 2 of the other groups. To move to 5, the 9 would be eliminated. Just have to track the number of groups and learn what will cause the groups to stay, expand or collapse. Sometimes 2 groups are used and other times 3 groups are used. Often time when 2 groups are used it will be a double.

      Hi Anita

      [I moved this comment to this post as it was about Pick 3 – so you probably didn’t see the post above before commenting. Basically – ditch Pick 3 as a game anyway, it’s just not a good game to play]

      This is the problem with these amazing sounding pieces of software. All this stuff sounds so technical and mathematical and almost logical. Surely if we can just apply the right formula, crack that final pattern…

      But none of it really makes any sense. These are balls bouncing around and randomly popping out – that’s how the game is designed – so why would software be able to predict what comes next based on charts and patterns? We can no more predict a Pick 3 game than we can a dice roll – and there’s only 6 combinations for that one :-)

  • Anita

    One more comment to Pick 3 players. As we all know there are 1000 Exacts/Straights. Figure out 1 digit that is going to draw and what position it will be in (1st, 2nd or 3rd) and you will reduce your Odds from 1 in 1000 to 1 in 100. Why? There are exactly 100 combinations with any specific digit in any given position. Watch the Repeats out of the prior draw as 60-62% of the time (this will flucturate but usually no less then 50) a digit will repeat to the next draw. Sometimes even 2 digits repeat.

    • LG

      The problem is you can’t figure which 1 is going to come out. It’s only a guess. So you’re not really reducing your odds at all. Digits repeat regularly simply because there are only a limited number of digits.

  • Carlos Sanchez

    I can help improve your odds for the CA Daily 3.

    • LG

      Me too – buy more than 1 combination. Difference is, my method actually does improve your chances.

      But Pick 3 is still the worst game choice. Nobody makes an income from Pick 3 – people claim it, but strangely can never prove it.

      • Frank Pedraza

        Dear Lottery Guy,

        I agree with you. Pick 3 is not worth it since you tend to miss your numbers more often. This is due to the odds being higher than other lottery games. The payout for Pick 3 is horrible compared to Daily 4. Rather stick with Daily 4.

      • LG

        Not sure that follows entirely Frank – the odds are better with Pick 3. But you’re right the payout is horrible, so you can’t ever walk away a big winner. Personally I wouldn’t go for anything less than a Pick 5 game though, but everyone has different ‘big enough’ requirements for a jackpot.
