New in P3 Charts version 2! If you scroll right from the P3 Wheels Skip Chart, you'll find an all new “Combination Query” chart. Simply enter any 3-digit combination into the three input fields and you'll be given the 25 most recent skips of that combo, as well as exact draw dates when it previously hit as a box, and also as a straight. This chart automatically searches the maximum number of real draws in your game's history, so you need not worry about virtual data being included in the data.
The combination's Box / Straight Favorability is also displayed, along with the Favorability group's hit percentage (70% - 20% - 10%), total hits of the combo, and finally its corresponding Sum, Root Sum, Sum Last Digit, and Reverse Sum values.
In the example above, we've entered a query for the combination 087. Notice that box combo 078 has hit 20 times previously, and also has multiple large and very large skips at the top of its skip bar. This would normally be a “Prime Play” combo except that it's currently out 142 games and did NOT recently hit. However, out of 20 previous hits for a 6-way box, the STRAIGHT combination 087 has only hit once. If we perform a query on all six straights within the box, this is what we find:
078 STRAIGHT: 4 hits (last hit 835 games ago)
087 STRAIGHT: 1 hit (last hit 1,482 games ago)
708 STRAIGHT: 3 hits (last hit 143 games ago)
780 STRAIGHT: 4 hits (last hit 482 games ago)
807 STRAIGHT: 4 hits (last hit 1,122 games ago)
870 STRAIGHT: 4 hits (last hit 228 games ago)
For a box combo alone, this probably isn't a good play because any number currently out a lot of games is likely to sit out even more games. But for 078 BOX to hit 20 previous times, while 087 STRAIGHT only hit once (having the same opportunity 20 times in a row), indicates that 087 STRAIGHT is probably overdue. Sure enough, the winning number 087 was drawn 77 days later on October 23, 2010!
LAST 50 GAMES FAVORABILITY TABLE
The final chart in the workbook is a Favorabilty table that shows box and straight Favorability of recent winning numbers. To recap – a Favorable combination means the number falls within a pattern that hits 70% of the time, a Cautionary combo falls within a pattern that hits 20% of the time, and an Unfavorable combo falls within a pattern that hits 10% of the time.
Within the “Digit Skips” worksheet, another Box / Straight Favorability chart shows the CURRENT Favorability rating of all 220 box combos and all 1,000 straight combos. It may be useful to compare these ratings to ratings that hit in the past, and this is where the Last 50 table comes in.
If you look below the Combination Query chart, you'll see a list of recent winning numbers, and two vertical columns indicating box Favorability on the left, and straight Favorability on the right. On average, the box and straight columns will EACH show 35 favorables, 10 Cautionaries, and 5 Unfavorables over the Last 50 draws of data. If more or less appear, this is likely a temporary trend that should reverse itself in the next 50 to 100 draws.
NOTE: The Favorability formulas were adjusted to precise 70% - 20% - 10% ratios after analyzing tens of thousands of real and virtual Pick 3 draws. These ratios will remain constant as long as the game consists of random numbers, either by mechanical draw machine or a random number generator.
Congratulations! You have completed the LottoChart Exec P3 Tutorial series and are well on your way to discovering patterns of order in random numbers.
While no one can guarantee you'll beat the odds in this game of chance, you at least have the most comprehensive Pick 3 workbook available for putting them straight in your favor!
