HOLMES - Elementary Deduction System - Part II Software System for Pick 3 and Pick 4 Games
OPTIONS The system comes with a number of options or settings that can be changed to your liking. For the first-time user of the program it is suggested to stay with the default settings to get familiar with the program. Once to get accustomed to the system you should try out the different options to get a feel for the potential of the system.
Prediction Type The software provides you with two prediction types “Hot” and “Cold”. The default is set to “Hot”. Usually this is a good setting. The system is basically expecting certain numbers to reappear. To get a better spread of potential results the “Cold” option can be used to increase the selection success.
You have to realize that “Hot” and “Cold” are not used in their often used meaning of giving you the most often occurring digits (“Hot”) or less often appearing digits (“Cold”).
The program actually evaluates the potential numbers and sorts the result list by calculating the potential of each and every possible boxed or straight number. Within this so-called “ranking” process the numbers are separated in “Hot” and “Cold” numbers as a way to show their likeliness of occurring.
Selection Style The software allows you to create predictions as “Straight” numbers or “Boxed” numbers. The default is set to “Boxed”.
Here is what advanced players say about “Straight” and “Boxed”: Even though a “Straight” hit in Pick 3 and Pick 4 games sounds like a good way for successful playing, the statistical background and empirical evaluation will tell you otherwise. The most successful Pick 3 and Pick 4 players play boxed numbers. Playing “Boxed” is the most reliable way for winning consistently and most practical way to budget your play. Depending on the budget, advanced players will increase their bets on boxed numbers instead of selecting “Straight” numbers directly. Playing boxed provides you lower winnings but at the same time more consistent winnings. That keeps you budget down and allows you to slowly increase your playing capital to increase the bets in the future.
The system allows you to make the decision yourself. You can either get straight or boxed numbers in the output.
