Do Pick 4 players pay attention to series wins? Early in my research, dating back to the mid-1990s, some Pick 4 players used series Pick 4 numbers as their Pick 4 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 series Pick 4 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 series Pick 4 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 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 drawing of the Texas Daily 4 as 6457. What is surprising is the movement of this particular number. It was drawn a second time in the TX Daily 4 Midday drawing on April 19 as 5476. Most recently in Rhode Island in their single draw evening Numbers Lottery it came in as 5647.
The neighbor series Pick 4 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 Texas celebrated its second series Pick 4 number in the Texas Daily 4 with 5436.
Florida Play 4 started with 3142 in the Midday drawing on April 17, 2010. That very evening, in Missouri, it was drawn as 2134. On April 19, 2010 this Pick 4 number played another doubleheader with the midday drawing in Maryland as 3124 and the second drawing in the evening in Georgia 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 drawings 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 Pick 4 series numbers are drawn on dates that are 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 Strategy.
