A friend of mine told me that she had heard that the Ga lottery was planning on adding a feature to the Cash 4 where you could win if you get 3 out of 4 numbers. Has anyone else heard this? If so does anyone know the details? Like how much someone would win getting 3 of 4? I don't know how many times I have been one number off. If this were truly the case I might just start playing this one again. -Bonnie

    Boy, that is hard to believe. The reason being is that there are wheels out there that can guarantee you 3 out of 4 digits on every draw (assuming no double or triple digits hit) using only about15 combinations.

    Now the lottery commissions must know that. So it's hard to believe that they would go with somehing like that. They'd lose their shirts.....unless they stipulate that you have to get three of four in order. I can't believe they would allow something like that boxed.

      I haven't heard anything but it would be nice or if she paid players for having the front/back pairs. She needs to do something to make the game more interesting for Cash 4 players.

      Thanks for the info

      Don't forget to flip those 6's/9's.

        Badger,

          If they go front 3 or back 3, how would that affect the pay out?

          I'm with you badger. When I do play, the most I play is about $5 worth of $.50 boxed plays but more often than not, I will end up with 3 of the numbers, though not in order. If they made it to where you could win on 3 boxed numbers, I would be making a killing. I don't think they would do that. I have also checked the GA lottery press releases on their website and I have found nothing about something like that. I was just wondering if anyone else had heard through the grapevine anything along those lines and what was the total deal to do with it. -Bonnie

            Badger,

            Since 3of4 if no repeats can be covered with 14 lines, paying out $7 or less for a $1 bet would still be within the the 50% payout rule and affordable but probably would disappoint more players than it would attract.

              Howdy All,

              If GA does go to that it will probably be like MO's. MO has front three/back three and they do have to be in order and the payout is the same as if you caught a Pick 3 /Cash 3 straight. It would probably pay $500 dollars, it is $600 here.

              Later,

              Bryan  :)

                  I forgot to mention a while ago that the add-on, if it is to be, will cost you an extra buck to play. Any little add-on will cost an extra buck. I have included the MO P4 prize pay-out to give you a peek at what GA may be in for. Just click on the link and scroll down to the yellow section.

                      Missouri dosent say anything about paying for 3 numbers.. 

                      Thats only if you play front 3 back 3..You have to know what three are going to come either side...

                      If it weren't for Vtracs and STXS where would we be?
