State lottery officials say sales of the new Pick-3 tickets are trailing sales of scratch-off lottery games. The Pick-3 game began last Thursday and after six days sales totaled just more than 488-thousand dollars. First day sales were 160-thousand dollars, but the average since has been about 65-thousand-500 dollars a day in sales for the tickets in which players can win 50- to 500-dollars by matching numbers to three numbers drawn in a nightly drawing. I wonder if pick 3 does any better in other states? Where is the higher pay-off lotto game

    Pick 3 is usually the state's highest percentage of sales.  It's a fun game to try to beat but I think it will take a while for people in OK to catch on.

      It takes a while to change gambling habits.  They'll find Pick 3 is better then Roosters pretty soon.

      Cheers

        I think OK needs 50 cent plays for Pick 3...  In most states you have $.50 and $1 plays.  A lot of people take an advantage of the $.50 plays (people like me) because you can have more plays for less.

        How are you going to win if you don't play?
