First of all, you need to look at the previous winning numbers for the pick 4 lotto game because the numbers that you pick in the future should be based on the numbers that have come up in the past. You need to make a note of the winning numbers for the previous 50 drawings and record the frequency that each number has been drawn. This process will help you to pick the right winning pick 4 numbers for the future drawings.
In order to find the previous winning numbers, you need to go to your state’s lottery website and click on the pick 4 tab. Then, take a sheet of paper and divide it into 3 columns. In the left column, list in each row a number from 0 – 9. The middle column is used for your running tally. In the right column, you will write down the total number of times each number showed up for the previous 30 days.
Let me give you an example of what you are going to do. We want to pick from the previous 50 drawings, so I start with day 50. Let’s say that the number is 2375. Remember that we are recording the frequency of each number. I will put a check mark in the row for 2, in the row for 3, in the row for 7 and in the row for 5. I will then look at the number for day 49. Let’s say the number is 9542. I would then put a check in rows 9, 5, 4 and 2.
After you have done this for the past 50 draws, you can tally up the check marks for each number and put the total in the last column. In some states, you may find a frequency graph displayed on the website, in which case you don’t need to do what has just been stated as it has already been done for you. If your state website doesn’t have one, then you will have to spend 30 minutes or so doing it yourself.
