3-way – Two of the digits are the same and the third is different (Also known as a â€œ3-wayâ€). An example would be 133. It is called the 3-way because it can appear as 133, 331, 313. The 3 way occurrence is 27%. Meaning in a perfect world, you should see a 3 way number about every 2 in 10 Draws.

6-way – Three unique digits in each column as in the example 135. It is called the 6-way because it can appear as 135, 153, 351, 315, 531, 513. The 6-way occurrence is 71%. Meaning in a perfect world you should see a 6 way number about every 7 out of 10 draws.

Back Pair (BP) – The two last digits of the Pick 3 number.
In the example number 849, the 49 would be the Back pair.

Bar numbers Similar to the Vtacs, and Sister Bar numbers are the opposite of the number (also the +5 of the number)
0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 Example 0 is the â€œBarâ€ of 5 and 5 is the â€œBarâ€ of 0
5 6 7 8 9 0 1 2 3 4

Base SUM â€“ The Base Root is the last digit in the SUM of a number. If there is only one digit in the SUM then that number is the Base Root.
SUM = 8, then Base SUM = 8
SUM = 14, then Base SUM = 4
SUM = 22, then Base SUM = 2

Boxed â€“ Listing a Pick3 number with each digit in any order. There are 220-boxed combinations that make up all of the 1000 Pick3 numbers. Ex. 593. Could be (593 539 395 359 935 953) or 488 Boxed could be (488 848 884).

BP Sum – The SUM of the last two digits in a Pick3 number when added.
FP Sum of 386 = 14 (8+6=14)
FP Sum of 238 = 11 (3+8=11)

Column – Each Pick 3 number has 3 coulmns in its numbers which represent the position of the digits. For example, the Pick3 number 345 has 3 in the first Column, 4 in the second column and 5 in the third.

Combination (Combo) – All possible ways to arrange a Pick3 number Ex. 593. could be (593 539 395 359 935 953)

Digit â€“ A single number. Example 1 or 8

Doubles – Two of the digits are the same and the third is different (Also known as a â€œ3-wayâ€). An example would be 133. It is called the 3-way because it can appear as 133, 331, 313. The 3-way occurrence is 27%. Meaning in a perfect world, you should see a 3 way number about every 2 in 10 Draws.

Draw â€“ The actual 3-digit number that are picked by the lottery. Generally referred to as an â€œEvening Drawâ€ or â€œMidday Drawâ€â€¦etc.

Drought – A period of time when no patterns are appearing. Example, a Double number should appear every 2 out of 10 draws. So if you notice 10 draws without a Double number, this would be considered a â€œDroughtâ€

Even Numbers – ( 0, 2, 4, 6, 8) Generally represented by a capital E, Low Numbers correspond to â€œEvenâ€ half of the 0-9 numbers in Pick 3 (5 total numbers)

FP Sum â€“ The SUM of the first two digits in a Pick3 number when added.
Example:
FP Sum of 386 = 11 (3+8 = 11)
FP Sum of 238 = 5 (2+3 = 5)

Martingale â€“ A method of betting were every time you win, you make the same bet for the next draw. But if you lose, you double your bet for the next draw. When you eventually hit after a series of misses you will still be up regardless of past losses.

Math (Lottery) – When adding or subtracting numbers use lottery math and do not carry.
Example 4+8 = 2 NOT 12

1 2 3 41 2 3 4 5 6 7 8
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19
4 + 8 = 12 (Donâ€™t carry the 1)

Midday â€“ Many lotteries have 2 draw per day. One is in the evening, and One is in the afternoon. More commonly the afternoon drawing is called the â€œMiddayâ€ Draw.

Number – Generally referred to as one of the Pick3 digits 0-9

Odd Numbers – ( 1, 3, 5, 7, 9) Generally represented by a capital O, Low Numbers correspond to â€œOddâ€ half of the 0-9 numbers in Pick 3 (5 total numbers)

Pair Sums – The SUM of any of the 55 pairs when added together.
Pair 56 = 5+6 = 11 Pair SUM

Pairs â€“ There are three pairs in every Pick 3 number: (1) the first two digits, (2) the first and third digit, and (3) the last two digits. There are a total of 55 different pairs (45 with different numbers, 10 with doubles),.

All of the 55 pairs can be divided into the following categories:

Odd – 13, 15, 17, 19, 35, 37, 39, 57, 59, 79
Even – 02, 04, 06, 08, 24, 26, 28, 46, 48, 68

Mirror/Sister – 16, 27, 38, 49, 50

Pari-mutual – Pari-mutual states are those that divide the winning equally among the winners and in effect lowering the amount each player wins.

Position – Each Pick 3 number has 3 columns in its numbers which represent the position of the digits. For example, the Pick3 number 345 has 3 in the first Column, 4 in the second column and 5 in the third.

Product â€“ The sum of all the digits when multiplied together. (037 = 0x3x7 = 21 = 1)

Pure numbers â€“ Numbers missing a specific trait. Like numbers with No all Odd or Even Numbers, or numbers with No all High or Low numbers.

Pyramids â€“ Method of staking numbers on top of each other in the form of a pyramid. Generally, the hottest number in the top of the pyramid and the coldest numbers in the bottom.

1
2 3
4 5 6
7 8 9 0

Repeat â€“ When the exact same number returns in the following draw, either the whole number, pair or a single digit.

Monday Eve 485 hits and Tuesday Eve 458
Whole number repeats are 4, 5 and 8
Monday Eve 385 hits and Tuesday Eve 458
Pair number repeats are 5 and 8
Monday Eve 365 hits and Tuesday Eve 458
Digit number repeat is 5
Root Sums â€“ To find the ROOT SUM of a number continue to add the SUM of the number until a single digit is returned. That single digit is the ROOT SUM of that number.

Example â€“ 224 The SUM is 2+2+4=8 SUM, since 8 is a single digit, 8 is also the ROOT SUM.
2nd Example â€“ 446 The SUM is 4+4+6=16 SUM, Then add 1+6=7 ROOT SUM
3rd Example – 757 The SUM is 7+5+7=19 SUM, Then add 1+9 = 10, Then 1+0=1 ROOT SUM.

Rundown – Another name for a workout. When you â€œdoâ€ a system it is referred to as a rundown. â€œDoing a rundown on a states historyâ€. Another way of using the term is running down a number usually by adding other digits to the original number.

Sister Number â€“ Similar to the Vtracs, sister numbers are the opposite of the number (also the +5 of the number)
0â€™s Sister number is 5 / and / 5â€™s Sister number is 0
1â€™s Sister number is 6 / and / 6â€™s Sister number is 1
2â€™s Sister number is 7 / and / 7â€™s Sister number is 2
3â€™s Sister number is 8 / and / 8â€™s Sister number is 3
4â€™s Sister number is 9 / and / 9â€™s Sister number is 4
Split Pair (SP) â€“ The two digits on each end of the Pick 3 number.
In the example number 849, the 89 would be the Split pair.
Split Sums – The SUM of the first and last digits in a Pick3 number when added.
Split Sum of 386 = 9 (3+6 = 9)
Split Sum of 238 = 10 (2+8=10)
Straight â€“ Listing a Pick3 number with each digit in its exact order. This is the highest paying method of play with odds at 1 / 1000.
Sum â€“ The total of all the Pick3 digits added together.
Example â€“ The number 224 would have a SUM of 2+2+4 = 8 SUM.

Track – Tracking a number is using the states history file to determine a specific pattern then tacking that pattern and using it as a guide for future outcomes.

Traveler (Traveling Numbers) â€“ The is the belief that Pick3 numbers appear to move from state to state. Hitting in different states for a couple of days. For example, Monday 846 hit in GA, Then Tuesday 648 hits in FL, and IL. Then Hits in OH and MI as 468 on Wed. etc. There is no predictable pattern to this. Just an observation.

Triples – All three of the digits are the same. An example would be 333. Obviously this only plays Straight. The Triple occurrence is 1.37%. Meaning in a perfect world you should see a 3 way number 1 in 100 Draws.

TTT (Tic Tac Toe) â€“ Is generally a box that numbers from a system are place into. It got the name Tic-Tac-Toe because it resembles a TTT board when itâ€™s set up.

1 2 3
4 5 6
7 8 9

Once the numbers are in the TTT format, the following pulls are generally done to get the number to play out of the TTT.

Across 123, 456, 789
Down 147, 258, 369
Diagonal 159, 357
Diamond 248, 268
Half Diamond 153, 157, 759, 359
Corners 214, 478, 896, 632
H Pattern 145, 745, 965, 365
Cross 458, 658, 256, 254
I 125, 325, 785, 985

Vtrac â€“ The term “Vtracs” is comprised of “V” for variable and “trac” for tracking. So when you talk about Vtracs, you’re talking about Variable Tracking.
Vtracs are 1-5 actual lottery #s are 0-9. Therefore, to translate #s into vtracs you must combine numbers.
Vtrac 1 (V1) = 0 and 5
Vtrac 2 (V2) = 1 and 6
Vtrac 3 (V3) = 2 and 7
Vtrac 4 (V4) = 3 and 8
Vtrac 5 (V5) = 4 and 9
Example : Pick3 number 586 ( 5 = Vtrac 1, 8 = Vtrac 4, 6 = Vtrac 2) so 586 = 142 in Vtracs.
Weights – are what you call a number with two or more High numbers (5,6,7,8,9) or 2 or more Low numbers (0,1,2,3,4), you can all so use weights for Even (0,2,4,6,8) and Odd (1,3,5,7,9) numbers.

Wheel â€“ Method of generating all the possible combinations that makes up a three-digit combination from a selected group of numbers.

If your favorite numbers where 3, 4, 9 and 0 then you would use a 4 Number WHEEL them to get the combinations.
4 Number wheel ABCD (Substitute the letters for the numbers you want to use)
ABC, ABD, ACD,
BCD
If your favorite numbers where 3, 4, 9, 0 and 6 then you would use a 5 Number WHEEL them to get the combinations.
5 Number wheel ABCDE (Substitute the letters for the numbers you want to use)
ABC, ABD, ABE
ACD, ACE
