A new lottery is starting June 5 2012 and it is Pick 2.

2 numbers - 0-9 each column

Cost $2 per line,

Prizes: If you get the first number - $2 if you get both (in exact order) $99

I've looked on line for a wheel or any suggestions on picking a combination, but can't find any - suggestions here?

        Pick 3 does better.

        100-2bets=98

            Real casino at European roulette: 2 euros straight on number 20, chance 1 in 37, if you win, payout 2*35=70 and you keep the bet!
            50 euros for 12/37, pays 100 euros and you keep the bet.
            You will want to play 50 dollars for 25/100, you get lousy 99 dollars when you win and you lose the bet? ROFL

              But front pair doesn't pay $2 or anything for matching just the first number with one bet.

                seems like $2 is better spent on Pick 3 or Pick 4 What?

                      Both digits  $99
                      First digit $2
                      so if you played 29 and the winning # was 29. You win $99
                      if you played 29 and the winning # was 19. You win $2

                        so if you played 29 and the winning # was 29. You win $99
                        if you played 29 and the winning # was 19. You win $2

                        In your second example, they would win nothing, because they did not match the first digit.  If the drawn combination was something like 26, then they would win $2.

                          Double checked and Todd is right - only the first digit will get the $2 if right!

                            For ex. winning number is 19

                            Isn't the 1st digit 9?

                            What?

                            I mite be confused btwn 1st and last digit Thud

                              If I got the payouts right, your expectancy for 2 CAD is -0.84 CAD. Type
