# Iowa Lottery Pick 4 Boxes Analysis

 Boxes, or any arrangement of the digits, of the Iowa Lottery Pick 4 Game are analyzed here. Since certain boxes are more likely to be drawn than others, the first step in the analysis would be to group all the 10,000 Pick 4 numbers are categories based on their pattern. Then the frequencies and last appearance of each group will be pressented. If you are not familiar with the Iowa  Pick 4 Game, or any 4-digit lottery game in general, you may start with the section on description, play types, and how to Play 4-digit lottery games. Even if you are familiar with the game the section about grouping and odds of 4-digit numbers can be very informative. - Updated on :Thursday, December 12, 2013 - Latest Number : 9081 - Number of Draws : 7118 On this page...

## Introduction to Pick 4 Box Analysis

As mentioned in other pages of this web site, boxes are any arrangement of a given 4-digit game number, represented by an ascending order of the digits. For instance, the box 0011 represents all the six possible permutations of the four digits: 0011,1100,0101,1010,1001,0110.

In this section we shall analyze the Iowa   Pick 4 boxes. The purpose of this analysis is to identify :

• the distribution in frequency of the five 4-digit box categories in the last 40, 100, 1000, and all (7118) draws,
• which Pick 4 game numbers have not been drawn in any arrangement?
• which Pick 4 boxes are the hottest (highest frequency) and which ones the coldest (low frequency)?
• which Pick 4 numbers have not been drawn even as a box for a long time now?

The analysis is performed separately for the four groups of 4-digit numbers, namely, non-repeating boxes (or 24-way boxes), one-doubled boxes (or 12-way boxes), dual-double boxes (or 6-way boxes), and one-tripled boxes (or 4-way boxes). The reason for a separate analysis is simply because the probability of a number winning is the highest for non-repeating boxes followed by one-doubled, one-tripled, dual-double, and quadruples, in that order.

Note that the box representation of 9081, the latest Iowa   Pick 4 number, is 0189.

You may also see the complete list of Iowa   Pick 4 Boxes(Combos) for an alphanumeric ordered list.

## Frequency of Iowa  Pick 4 Box Categories

The following table lists the frequencies of the four box groups, plus quadruples, in the last 40, 100, 1000, and all (7118) draws of the Iowa Pick 4 game. Click on one of the tabs to see the actual and the expected number of times that each group is drawn. The bar graph in the last column will help you to visually identify if a Pick 4 group is drawn more than or less than the expected value. Since these bars represent percentages of the analyzed draws, they will appear very close to each other at higher number of draws. For this reason, the frequencies are shown again at the end of the bars for more clarity.
