why is the pick 3 odds at 1 in 1000?


the 1000th number would have to be 4 numbers, not 3. I am guessing the 1000th number is really 000. Correct?

I was assuming the pick 3 odds would have to be 1 in 999.

There are 1000 possible straight 3 digit combinations from which 1 combination will be drawn.


Hence, 1 in 1000.

Three columns of 10, 10 X 10 X 10 = 1000

Plus what Lotterologist said.

One in 1000 = 999:1 or 999 to one odds against.

"000" is a valid combination in a Pick 3 draw.


yeah I know. 000 to 999.
