Every Pick 3 player who really wants to be a winner looks to Pick 3 Lottery Number Generators to help him/her to find winning lottery numbers using filters. The filters use past drawn winning numbers in order to gain this necessary needed information.

The first step usually involves researching past performances of the local Daily 3 Lottery in one’s own State. The time period for this research can vary from 7 days to 60 days. In the States with a single Pick 3 draw per day system there is not a problem. In States with multiple draws, for example, one Midday and one Evening draw the Pick 3 Lottery Number Generators suggest to collect information for either one, but not both.

In this article I have chosen to use a seven-day system using the Illinois Pick 3 Midday drawn numbers from March 21 through March 27, 2010. The Pick 3 winning numbers drawn were…. 092….318…780….667….234….229….565.

One of the first and most common generally known filters used is the Hot/Cold filter. **Matka** The most frequent drawn digit(s) or “Hot Number” and its counterpart the “Cold Number” which is represented by any non-drawn digits or least drawn digits are combined together to create new playable Pick 3 numbers. Technically, and to avoid confusion later I will refer to these single numbers as “digits”, and the set of the three digits that make up the Pick 3 winner as “numbers”.

You use all the digits individually with each filter. For the most frequently drawn or “Hot Digits” determined from the IL Pick 3 Lottery Numbers the following list is developed….2 (drawn 4 times), 6 (drawn 3 times), 3, 5, 7, 8, 9, & 0 (all drawn 2 times each), and finally 1 & 4 (drawn 1 time each). The 1 and 4 digits are designated as the “cold digits”.

The next step in the process of this filtering is to combine these hot and cold digits to create a list of playable Pick 3 numbers that will become the next winning number. The formula looks like this [hot digits + cold digits = next winning number] or [2 & 6 + 1 & 4]. The resulting playable numbers are 261, 264, 214, and 614.

To increase the lottery player’s chances of winning the Pick 3 Lottery he needs to use some of the middle range drawn digits [3, 5, 7, 8, 9, and 0] that only appeared once during the week.

Another couple of favorite filters that these Pick 3 Number Generators use are the Odd/Even filter and the High/Low filter. With the odd /even filter the lottery player wants to attempt to reach a balance between the odd digits [1, 3, 5, 7, & 9] and the even digits [0, 2, 4, 6, & 8]. With the high/low filter the same lottery player looks to balance the high numbers [5, 6, 7, 8, & 9] and the low numbers [0, 1, 2, 3, & 4].

For balance and consideration of these two additional filters, namely the odd/even and high/low digit filter, the Pick 3 player adds 5 & 9 to the hot digit group. The formula now becomes [2, 5, 6, 9 + 1 & 4]. Now this means that the Pick 3 player is not going to include the following digits [0, 3, 7, & 8] in developing his list of playable numbers.

Now the Pick 3 player feels confident that using these three filters he has generated the following balanced group of numbers from these three filters [1, 2, 4, 5, 6, and 9]. In addition to the defined hot/cold filtered digits, the player has a balance of three odd digits and three even digits as well as 3 low digits and 3 high digits. All of this seems to be right and correct and the process moves forward now to calculate and produce a list of numbers to consider for play in the Pick 3 lottery.

But here is why these filters don’t work. These filters actually make these Pick 3 numbers and the Pick 3 lottery player an “automatic loser”; even before the lottery player begins to create the list of playable numbers. Remember those four digits that you did not include in your formulas [0, 3, 7, & 8]. Do you know for each digit that the player eliminates he eliminates 271 possible winning straight combinations? Any winning drawn Pick 3 number that contains one of these four digits makes the number and the Pick 3 player an “automatic loser”.
