The 2 & 2 Rule - Finding Pairs

It's been a while since I posted on the blog. I've been busy with other work, as well and creating new ways for us as players to find numbers to play that will help us win more! And this post is a new technique to help you do just that - win!

This approach has been developed by me, simply by paying attention to what's really happening when drawn numbers are released. And I think you're going to love this one. It's really simple to watch for, and when it happens, there's minimal to be done. Simply play the pairs with the extra number of your choice, or play the pairs as an "ALL", and you will hit - guaranteed.

"The 2 & 2 Rule"

As the name implies, there's a "rule" you must watch for, for this to work.
The rules are very simple.

1.) The draws MUST be back to back draws (day to night, or night to day)
2.) The draws MUST contain 2 numbers that are the same (and mirroring is accepted)

Rule number 1 is pretty self-explanatory and easy to follow. And if you don't understand, then look at the last 2 numbers drawn in your state. That's back to back draws. That's it - that's all it takes for rule #1.

Rule number 2 can be a little tricky if you don't understand what "mirrors" are and how to use them. In short, a mirror number is either +/- 5 from the current number. That's it. So using a 2, the mirror is 7 (2+5=7). But the mirroring is where it can be a little tricky. Let me give you an example of the mirroring in the back to back draws.


Those 2 draws are back to back from PA. And they also contain 2 of the same numbers when we consider the mirrors. Let me show you. We are going to take the "68" from the 268. When we mirror those, they become "13". And sure enough, now we can see it has 2 of the same numbers as the previous draw in 931.

So, are these back to back draws? And do they meet the second requirement of the rules, which is it contains 2 of the same number (mirrors accepted)? The answer is yes to both rules! Now we have a "setup". So now what?

Perfect, we have a setup that happened on 5/6 in PA when 268 and 931 were drawn back to back. Let me do some highlights so you can see this better!

268 <-- When mirrored is "13"

So now what we do is, we take the first instance of the setup, meaning the 931, and we are allowed to use the original pair, or, we are allowed to mirror only one single digit of the pair. That's it! So when we use the "31" from the 931 setup and consider the mirroring we get the following:

31, 81, 36

Those are our pairs that we are going to focus on and watch for. With those pairs, you can pick just the pair that you like, or, you can play them all with an extra number you may like, or play all 3 pairs as an "ALL". Meaning you'd play each pair with a 0-9 to catch a boxed hit. If we had done that, on 5/9, PA had played 367. And there's our pair of "36" that hit.

Let's look at this using actual draw data from LP and PA's draws

Thu, May 9, 2024 516 367
Wed, May 8, 2024 404 733
Tue, May 7, 2024 793 432
Mon, May 6, 2024 931 268

As you can see, I've highlighted the "setup" in yellow, and again our pairs were, 31, 81, 36. And on May 9th, 367 hit!

Let's try another state and see what happens.


Sat, May 18, 2024 906 370
Fri, May 17, 2024 755 900
Thu, May 16, 2024 246 492
Wed, May 15, 2024 698 648

Tri-States did a setup on May 15th, with 698 and 648. The first setup was 698, so we use that. Our pairs are 69, 19, 64. And sure enough, the very next draw, Tri-States pulled 246 - using our "64" pair.


Fri, May 17, 2024 755 189
Thu, May 16, 2024 432 964
Wed, May 15, 2024 031 071
Tue, May 14, 2024 196 437
Mon, May 13, 2024 655 515

This one is pretty simple and easy to spot. On the 13th of May, Illinois pulled 655 and 515. So our first rule is met, by back to back draws. And our second rule is met, because both draws contain 2 of the same numbers. So we are allowed to use the original pair - 55. Or mirror just one number, so 50 or 05. Final pairs are 55, 50, 05. And sure enough, just 7 draws later, Illinois pulled 755, which matches our pairs setup.


Fri, May 17, 2024 514 461
Thu, May 16, 2024 151


We use the first instance of "51", so 51, 01 or 56, and the next draw was 514.

The list goes on and on, and works in all states! I've back tested this, like always with anything I put out, to make sure it works before releasing it to the masses to help people win. I want to make sure it's easy to use and follow, and people can use it and win!

Let me give you some bonus content with this approach. So you watch for a "setup" and the setup happens, 2 back to back draws and both numbers contain 2 of the same numbers, even when we consider mirrors. If the pairs are a "true double" (meaning like 22, 88, 00, etc) then you will actually want to consider playing for a straight hit versus a boxed hit. Here's why...

When we take a pair, let's say 31. If we were to play all it would look like this:
031, 131, 231, 331, 431, 531, 631, 731, 831, 931

Now if we were to also consider the permutations (all the ways say 231 can be played) that would result in 6 numbers that you would have to play just 231.

231, 213, 321, 312, 123, 132

Whereas, if we are dealing with a true double, say 22, you'll notice there's only really 3 ways to play 221.
221, 212, 122

And if you are playing all, meaning 0-9/22, then you would have 3 x 10 = 30 numbers to play STRAIGHT!
Sure, it may cost you $15 (.50 x 30 = $15), but your payout is $250! Well worth the investment, especially when you are dealing with doubles. That is of course, if you only chose to play the 22 and not the 27 and 77 pairs that goes with it.

But if you decided you wanted to play all 3 of the pairs that are a double boxed, you'd be playing 28 numbers, and 2 of those numbers would be played straight. 222 and 777. So your cost is $14 for your boxed payout of around $40ish depending on your state's double payout structure. Some states pay higher because it's a double.

The choice is yours on how you choose to play it. But I wanted to provide another technique that helps you to see the pairs that are coming and hit anywhere from the very next draw up to 5-6 days later. What's a good strategy you would use to play these pairs and hit? Leave me comment below and tell me how you would approach this.

I sincerely hope this helps people see the pairs that are coming in their state or the states they play in, and allows them to win more often. If you were to track these in your own state in a single month's time, you'd be amazed at just how many times this happens. I took a screen shot of Missouri's data to show someone in that thread.

Take a look at all the highlights! These are setups and their respective plays after a setup has been done.

That's just in the month of April, and those are all within the same month. Meaning nothing
that's highlighted extends to another month. Pretty insane right? This is what happens when we really pay attention to what's happening.

I recently mentioned this to someone and I like it as a quote:
"When we are focused, we aren't focused".

What that means is, when we are focused on something, we aren't able to see the other things that are going on around us as well. When we can learn to look at this "system" as just that, a system, and not be so focused to try to find the next number, the system will actually tell us the next number(s) to come.

Til then...

    Nice article and with regard to Tri States are there continuous wins on 16,17, 18 or you just did not go any further since the case had been made for your explanation.  Thanks and tracking more in Ohio as that is where I play.

    Wow this is impressive Friend�. I�m still learning how pick 3 works and it�s so much information! But once I understand it, I�ll see how previous results tells us a story..
    Thanks for sharing your insights�
