If you take any Pick 3 game that's randomly drawn (with actual ball sets or a random number generator), you'll find that almost precisely 61% of the time, at least one of the winning digits is a repeat digit from the previous draw. 48% of the time a winning digit comes from exactly the second game back, or it skipped one game. 35% of the time it comes from the third game back, or a skip of 2 games, and 26% of the time a winning digit comes from exactly the fourth game back, or a skip of 3 games. By studying these skips and only playing a number when it previously hit most often, and is therefore likely to hit again, your odds of winning are much improved over random play alone.
Skips occur in patterns and these patterns can be used to your advantage. For example, if you divide a digit's recent skips into two groups (low skips and high skips), you'll find that many consecutive skips from one group are followed by many consecutive skips from the other group. If a digit hits on several high skips in a row, it is likely to reverse course and hit on several low skips in a row. The division between these groups is known as the median, or middle skip of the hits. By highlighting skips above and below the median, and viewing them together in color-coded bars, you can anticipate what is likely to happen next when too many skips fall into one group or the other.
