Pennsylvania (PA) Lottery General Information

The Pennsylvania Lottery was established on August 26, 1971, by a legislative act, Title 91. Proceeds were initially targeted to provide property tax relief for the elderly in the Commonwealth. Since its introduction, program benefits funded by the Pennsylvania Lottery have expanded to include rent rebates, administered by the Pennsylvania Department of Revenue, and free and reduced-fare transit for older Pennsylvanians and reduced vehicle registration fees, programs administered by the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT). The Pennsylvania Department of Aging administers a co-pay prescription drug program, the Pharmaceutical Assistance Contract for the Elderly (PACE), and allocates funding for Area Agencies on Aging services, as well. The Pennsylvania Lottery is the only state lottery that exclusively targets its proceeds to benefit older citizens.

Even if they don’t become millionaires, senior citizens in Pennsylvania love the state lottery — it’s the only state where lottery proceeds are used solely for their benefit.

Lottery-financed programs for elderly Pennsylvanians include property-tax relief, rent rebates, free and reduced-fare transit, co-pay prescriptions, meals-on-wheels, in-home care, and 52 area offices on aging.

Established in 1971, the lottery is required to dedicate 30% of every dollar to elderly programs and 40% to prizes, though the actual amounts have been closer to 40% and 50%, respectively.

The lottery offers online, instant-win, daily, and weekly games. Retailers earn a 5% commission on the tickets they sell.

Pick-3 Stats: Digits Ranked by Frequency from Best to Worst Numbers, Hot to Cold

Reports created by FrequencyRank , lottery, lotto, Pick-3 statistical software.

The statistical reports rank the Pick 3 digits by their frequency . The numbers are listed in descending order, from the most frequent (the hottest or the best) to the least frequent digits (the coldest or the worst numbers). The reports show the number of hits ; i.e. amount of drawings in which that particular Pick-3 digit was a winner.

The ranking by frequency is performed two ways:
1) Regardless of position;
2) Position by position.

You will notice differences in the two reports.

Regardless of position: Counts in how many draws the digit came out;

Position-by-position: Counts all occurrences of a digit.
The position-by-position frequency will always show the exact amount of digits that appeared in a number of drawings analyzed. For example, the span of analysis was 100 drawings. If we add up the frequencies for digit position 1, the amount must be 100. The same is true for the other positions. If we add up the frequencies for the three positions, the total must be 100 x 3 = 300.

A statistical report as such is not of much use. The short-term ranges of analysis offer stronger tendencies, in accordance to the Fundamental Formula of Gambling (FFG). For far better results, run the special lottery software SkipSystem :

• Current Pick 3 game format: 3 digits from a field of 10, from 0 to 9
• Total drawings in this results file: 9353
• Most recent drawing in this file: May 15, 2017 (2 3 3)
• Data recorded in Pennsylvania Lottery, evening drawings only.

The following statistical reports are no longer updated. The registered members of this site can run Frequency Rank any time, for any number of lottery drawings. The reports for any 3-digit game in the world are generated in mere seconds.

One caveat: The Pennsylvania pick 3 game has a very long history. Admittedly, mistakes are likely. I entered data from a multitude of sources. Earlier, I entered data manually. I might have also missed or deleted some drawings. I might have deleted triple combinations, such as 000, 111, etc.

The short span of analysis is where the money is. The short parpalucks create staggering biases in pick-3 digit frequency. Any lottery strategy should focus only on short parpalucks.
