# How to Identify the Best Pick 4 Lottery Strategy & System

The Basic Pick 4 Lottery Game has 10,000 possible winning Straight numbers ranging from 0000 to 9999. The odds of choosing the winning Pick 4 number straight is 10,000 to 1. These odds are much better than playing the Mega Millions, Powerball, and different State Lotteries which have odds of over 150,000,000 to 1.

Even the State Lottery games that have just 5 numbers to choose from still have much higher odds than the Pick 4. In the Illinois Lottery this game is called “Little Lotto”. Match all five numbers, and the jackpot prize begins with a \$100,000 payoff. It increases with non-winning jackpot draws. It recently reached \$1 Million. Once someone wins the jackpot it starts over at \$100,000.00.

If you have four out of the five numbers, the payout is \$100. Three of the five numbers pays the ticket holder \$10.00. The last possible payout in the game is \$1.00 for having two of the five numbers.

The reason I mention these games is to demonstrate how powerful the Daily Pick 4 Lotto Game is with its odds and its payoffs compared to all these games. Unlike the previously mentioned Lotto Games the Pick 4 Game has two possible wins – one is “Straight” (for the Jackpot Payoff of \$5,000 for one \$1 bet) and the other is “Box” (matching the four drawn numbers in any order).

The “Box” payouts range from \$200 to \$1200 for one \$1 wager. The Single Pick 4 number is a combination of four different digits (1234). Any single set Pick 4 Number pays \$200. There are some people who propose this system as being the best. As an example by choosing “1234” as your Pick 4 set you cover 24 possible numbers to win. These numbers are:

1234….1243….1324….1342….1423….1432 2134….2143….2314….2341….2413….2431 3124….3142….3214….3241….3412….3421 4123….4132….4213….4231….4312….4321

The odds have given you a better chance of winning, not just winning, but winning \$200 for the same \$1 investment as in any of the above lotto games. The odds of winning now are at 417 to 1.

Using this system by itself as the best system, for example, in April 2009 in Illinois, following are single Pick 4 results:

6273….4896….9702….0861….0563….2504 3501….3172….4938….0165….0379….9742 1358….3260….2380….0281….2765….6847 8479….8960….0869….4389….2537….2836

These 24 of 56 draws represent a 43% winning percentage. But there are 22 different singles represented here. When you add this information to the equation, the winning odds are further reduced. Since two single box forms (0689 & 3489) repeated themselves, this reduces it to 20 different single sets; even the basic “1234” wasn’t drawn.

It’s the basic start-up theory, but it is just not enough. You need more possibilities. The examples from Illinois, April 2009 Pick 4 results, showed that 57% of the winning draws were not single sets. These odds will change from month to month.

The next group of Pick 4 numbers is the “double” sets. Two of the four digits are the same (1123). Double sets cover 12 possible straight winning numbers like the following: 1123….1132….1213…1312….1231….1321 2311….3211….2131….3121…2113….3112.

The good news about double sets is that the payout is \$400 per \$1 investment. Let’s see how these sets of numbers were drawn in the Illinois Pick 4 April 2009 example:

0068….7080….5499….5363….5524….9593 6268….0449….8737….2010….5099….8048 9757….2990….7336….3351….6463….0727 7151….4140….0455….1626….1819….3404 7719….5626….7330….3225….7662

These 29 winning drawn Illinois Pick 4 numbers represent 50% of the 58 draws during the month. By including additional strategies that include “double” sets you now cover 93% of the April 2009 Illinois Pick 4 Winning Numbers. That’s a great improvement to your winning strategy. In January, single and double sets combined for 95%, and 96% in February and March.

In conclusion, look for a Pick 4 System that has multiple strategies to include more than just the single set of numbers. It is important to increase the winning percentage to 90% or higher of winning Pick 4 numbers. That spells SUCCESS.
