Hi,i'm a newbie.Great forum by the way.

Ok,my question is about pick 3 which started today in OK where i live.

Pick 3 pays $500 straight for $1

I also sometimes play online pick 3 at a Uk bookie,which pays $700 for 3 correct number 1-49 any order.You can play for as little as 10 cents a line=10 cents 3 correct -$70

 

What are the best odds P3 daily Oklahoma or P3 1-49

 

Thanks

 

Be lucky.......

    Your online bet has odds of 18,424:1.  There are 18,424 ways to choose (3) numbers out of 49.

    Oklahoma P3 has odds of 1,000:1.

    Would you rather spend $18,000 and win $700?  Or spend $1,000 and win $500?

        Box or straight has no bearing on the overall payout of a game. 

        Put down $1,000 straight on every combination and you'll win $500.  Put down $1,000 box on every combination and you'll win $500.

          Your odds are 1000 to 1.  As stated by JAG331, if you played every possible combination straight for a dollar you can only win $500.  The house gets the other $500.  That's why the states love the Pick 3 game, because no matter who wins the house always win.  If I were you I would keep detailed records of what's happening with your game and study the charts to look for patterns.  When you play a number, play it boxed a couple of times and straight a couple of times on seperate tickets.  When you win, you get more than the $500 max per ticket.  In addition, I would definitely stay away from online betting.

          It is better to open your eyes and say you don't understand, than to close your eyes and say you don't believe.

            In Ohio Pick3:

            There are 1000 straight combinations and having a dollar wager on each one would costs $1000 and win $500.

            There are 220 box combinations including triples and having a dollar wager on each one would cost $220 and win:
            for a triple $500
            for a double $167
            for a 6 way box $83

            If you wagered a $1000 on all box combinations you would cover each one 4-5 times and win:
            for a triple $2000-$2500
            for a double $668-$835
            for 6 way box $332-$415
