Pick 3 Lottery and Pick 4 Lottery Traveling Numbers Can Make Players Winners

There are millions of Pick 3 and Pick 4 Lottery players in the United States and Canada. They play these two lottery games because they can win with them. The Pick 3 Lottery has odds of 1,000 to 1 to capture a Straight Win. The Pick 4 Lottery with that added digit has odds of 10,000 to 1.

Compared to the highly advertised Mega Millions, Powerball, and State Lotteries with their very enticing multimillion dollar jackpots and odds ranging from 125 million to 1 to 195 million to 1 that very few people can win without some major help from Lady Luck, Pick 3 and Pick 4 lotteries are the choice of all these smart lottery players.

Their relatively small comparative jackpots of $500 for the Pick 3 Lottery and $5000 for the Pick 4 Lottery with the same $1 investment can keep players playing and having fun at the same time. These millions of lottery players play their chosen numbers each day, and then go off to their daily routines of work, family responsibilities, and leisure time activities before retiring for their nightly slumber.

The following morning they begin their day by openning up the USA Today or local newspaper in hopes of starting their day reading that their chosen Pick 3 or Pick 4 numbers made them a winner overnight. There is a certain thrill when a lottery player begins his/her day proclaiming one’s self to all the world as “a winner”.

This is not to overlook the fact they are slightly richer than the day before by $500 or $5000 with a Straight Win respectively. Even a smaller Box Win ranging from $40 to $600 can provide the same kind of thrill. A winner is a winner is a winner. And it is always fun deciding what to do with this new extra free money when the players cash their winning tickets.

But as players run their fingers down the list of winning Pick 3 and Pick 4 results from the different State and Provincial Lotteries in the USA Today newspaper or their local newspaper, they make an amazing discovery about some of these winning lottery numbers.

Both the Pick 3 and Pick 4 Lotteries have drawn the same three or four digits. They may not be in the same order, but sometimes they are. Sometimes they appear on the same day and sometimes they appear the next day or even a few days later.

On May 1, 2011 Maine, New Hampshire, and Vermont Pick 3 lotteries drew 353 in the Tri-State midday drawing. On the following day the midday drawing in the New Jersey Pick 3 drew the same Pick 3 number, 353. May 2, 2011 also recorded the Tennessee Cash 3 midday drawing of 353. Later that day, in the evening drawing of the California Daily 3 on May 2, 2011 335 was the winning Pick 3 number.

The 274 began as back to back winners repeating itself in both the midday and evening drawings on May 10, 2011 in the South Carolina Pick 3 Lottery. On May 12, 2011 Virginia Pick 3 drew 742. Minnesota Pick 3, in their evening drawing that same day drew 247. In the single draw States with only evening drawings, the next day, May 13, 2011 Washington State Daily Game Lottery drew 274, and on May 14, 2011 the Kansas Pick 3 Lottery drew 472.

These are known as “traveling numbers”. Some Pick 3 and Pick 4 players are not aware of their existence. Some players had seen these occurrences, but didn’t know what to make of them or what to call it. Pick 3 and/or Pick 4 numbers that contain the same digits and are drawn and redrawn in different State or Provincial Lotteries over a short period of time are known as “traveling numbers”.

Pick 4 players find similar occurrences as they looked for their winning numbers. On May 8, 2011 the Michigan Daily 4 evening number was 8269. The next day on May 9, 2011 the Indiana Daily 4 midday drawn number was 8926. These Pick 4 digits put their traveling shoes on again, and on May 12, 2011 in the evening drawing arrived in the Maryland Pick 4 Lottery as 2869. The next day, May 13, 2011 these four digits appeared in the New Jersey Pick 4 midday drawing as 8629 before returning to the Michigan Daily 4 that same evening as 9286.

The neighboring Pick 4 number, 3968, started its travels on May 10, 2011 in the Michigan Daily 4 in the evening drawing. On May 12, 2011 in the Ohio Pick 4 Lottery midday drawing it appeared as 8963. On May 15, 2011 in the midday drawing in the Virginia Pick 4 it was drawn as 8639. Later that same evening in the Delaware Play 4 it came in as 3986.

Just as players see above, these traveling numbers like to visit neighboring States. In the Illinois and Iowa Pick 4 evening drawing on May 8, 2011 the 2798 was drawn. In the very next evening drawing on May 9, 2011 the Missouri Pick 4 Lottery drew the SAME PICK 4 NUMBER, 2798, in the EXACT SAME ORDER.

Pick 3 and Pick 4 traveling numbers can make lottery players winners when they know of their existence and their possible visit, especially from neighboring States or Provinces. Using a proven Pick 3 and/or Pick 4 Lottery System that helps players to discover the possibility that these three or four digits could repeat, improves their chances of winning tremendously.

Pick 4 Lottery Strategy – Win the Pick 4 With Series Numbers

Do Pick 4 players pay attention to series wins? Early on in my research, dating back to the mid-1990s, some Pick 4 players used Pick 4 series numbers as their Pick 4 Lottery Strategy. They were looking to establish some kind of trend by using this type of numbers.

Since April 16, 2010, series numbers have been popping up all over the map in the world of Pick 4 Lotteries here in the United States.

A Pick 4 series number is made up of four consecutive digits in any order. Series numbers include 0123, 1234, 2345, 3456, 4567, 5678, 6789, 7890, 8901, & 9012. These are true Pick 4 series numbers because they are in the exact order or straight version.

I don’t hear or see much interest in series numbers as a Pick 4 Lottery Strategy for this lottery game as I did back in the 1990s. All these numbers are single type Pick 4 numbers, also known as 24-way numbers. There are a total of 240 series numbers within the 10,000 Pick 4 combinations.

In the VA Pick 4 Lottery a true version was drawn midday on April 17, 2010, with 4567. This true version was followed hours later in the Midday Texas Daily 4 draw of 6457. What is surprising is the movement of this particular number. It was drawn a second time in the TX Daily 4 Midday draw on April 19 as 5476. Most recently in Rhode Island in their single draw evening Numbers Lottery it came in as 5647.

The neighbor Pick 4 series number to the south began in the District of Columbia on April 19, 2010, in the DC-4 evening draw as 3546. The Missouri Pick 4 joined in this parade by drawing 4635 on the evening of April 21. The very next evening on April 22 the Lone Star State celebrated its second Pick 4 series number in the Texas Daily 4 with 5436.

Florida Play 4 started with 3142 in the Midday draw on April 17, 2010. That very evening, in the Missouri Pick 4, it was drawn as 2134. On April 19, 2010, this Pick 4 number played another doubleheader with the midday draw in the Maryland Pick 4 as 3124 and the second draw in the evening in Georgia’s Cash 4 as 1342. This number must be a big fan of baseball’s old Twilight Doubleheaders.

The first series number spotted in this second half of April was 3102 in the Virginia Pick 4 Midday drawing on the 16th of the month.

Pennsylvania’s Big 4 followed the next midday on April 17, 2010, with 8907. 8679 appeared jointly in the Illinois and Iowa Pick 4 Lotteries the following evening on April 18.

The triple play of the month so far occurred on April 22, 2010, with midday draws in Iowa and Illinois both showing 8109, and the Ohio Pick 4 brought home 0981.

One of the touted suggestions that never panned out into a full blown theory was that these Pick 4 series numbers were drawn on dates that were divisible by 3. Pick 4 players were watching 3, 6, 9, 12, 15, 18, 21, 24, 27, and 30 as the dates to play these Pick 4 numbers when they were due to come in.

So far during April 2010, the Pick 4 series numbers have been drawn on the following dates 16, 17, 18, 19, 21, and 22. Only two of the six dates are divisible by 3.

If you are a Pick 4 Lottery player remember these are the real series of Pick 4 Wins, and don’t forget they’re out there……even if no one is talking about them, they may develop into your Pick 4 Lottery Strategy.

Does How Pick 3 Numbers Are Drawn Make a Difference in Your Daily 3 Play?

Pick 3 players around the country talk about how their Pick 3 Numbers are drawn in their State’s three-digit lottery games. The Pick 3 is the most popular and most played lottery in the country. From California Daily 3 to Maine Pick 3 to Florida Cash 3 to the State of Washington The Game millions of Americans play this Pick 3 Lottery game.

There are thirty-seven Daily 3 Lotteries that include the District of Columbia Lucky Numbers, where players can invest their money. Some lottery players like their numbers to be drawn by the traditional method. The traditional drawing method involves ten numbered ping pong balls being dropped into three different containers.

Each ball is marked with a single digit 0 through 9. One container at a time, the ten numbered balls are air blown around the container until one numbered ball is blown up a tube to be one of the three digits that make up the winning Pick 3 Number. There are eighteen Pick 3 Lottery States that use this drawing method exclusively. Pennsylvania Daily Numbers Lottery uses this method in their evening draws.

The other State Lotteries that draw Pick 3 numbers with this method are Connecticut Play 3, Florida Cash 3, Georgia Cash 3, Illinois and Iowa Pick 3, Maine and Maryland Pick 3, New Hampshire and New Jersey Pick 3, New York Numbers, North Carolina and Ohio Pick 3, South Carolina Pick 3, Texas Daily 3, Vermont and Virginia Pick 3, and West Virginia Daily 3.

The PA Daily Numbers Midday draw uses the other method. The other drawing method is a Pick 3 computer generated number set of three digits that become your winning Pick 3 Number. The computer v- chip within the computer randomly produces computer generated numbers that makes the player a winner.

The following State Lotteries use this method of draw: Arkansas Cash 3, Arizona Pick 3, CA Daily 3, DC Lucky Numbers, Delaware and Idaho Pick 3, Indiana Daily 3, Kansas and Louisiana Pick 3, New Mexico and Minnesota Pick 3, Missouri and Nebraska Pick 3, Oklahoma Pick 3, Tennessee Cash 3, WA The Daily Game, and Wisconsin Daily Pick 3.

Many players prefer the traditional method because they can view the drawing on their local TV newscast. They feel it is fairer to the player than the computer, since they can actually see the results with their very eyes. Ideally, players want to be able to view the whole process as it unfolds from beginning to end. But compared to the Pick 3 number computer generated method, just viewing that single numbered ball arriving at the top of the tube is acceptable.

Depending on where one lives and plays their favorite Pick 3 Lottery Game, the player has to live with the drawing method that their State Lottery currently has in place. In some Lottery groups, members are encouraged to petition their State Lottery Commissions who presently are using the computer method to use the traditional method instead.

In the end, the most important question is…. Does How Pick 3 Numbers Are Drawn Make A Difference in Your Daily 3 Play?
