“Mine Boss Team”

  • “Prospector Team” becomes a “Mine Boss Team” when selected by the IL Lottery’s Pick 3 drawing using the NADO formula.

Mine Boss Team Selection Process:

We will be using the Illinois Lottery Noon Drawing Pick 3 on the following day of the tournament played, using this formula.

Total Amount of possible #'s= 1000
1000/Total teams in that tournament= Range of Numbers per team.
Number drawn / Range of Numbers per team.
That Number rounded up to nearest whole number.
Use that Number to pick team on Chart starting count with Round 0 then to Round 1
000=Last Team on Board. The reason that 000=Last team on board is so that it is equal /count 000 as 1000 instead of 0

Example 1:
13 Teams>>Lotto number is 500
500/77= 6.49>>7th Team

Example 2:
9 Teams>>>Lotto Number is 395
1000/9= 111      
395/111= 3.55>>>4th Team

Example 3:
18 Teams>>>>>>Lotto Number 196
196/55.55555= 3.52 >>>4th Team
