For those of you who play the Texas Pick 3, I would like to find out how many of you would be interested in seeing the "Front Pair - Back Pair" option added to the game. Please also give me your thoughts about why or why not it should be added. I know someone who can put a word in with the Texas Lottery Commission, if there are enough people interested in that option.

Thanks!

    Yes, by all means, that would be great. I'm all for it and I can't see why others wouldn't be. alx

        hareless, Take a look at some other states' lottery websites that offer it, such as Vermont, New Mexico, Iowa . . . there are several.  Basically, you have the option of picking which 2 numbers, in exact order, will be drawn as the front pair, or back pair.  For example, you pick 1-2 to be drawn as the front pair, or 2-3 to be drawn as the back pair, in the exact order.  The payoff for a 50-cent ticket is, on average, $25, and $50 for a $1 play.  The lowest return I have seen was $5.  If that's all Texas would offer, then I don't think it's worth it.  But $25 or $50, certainly.

            Yes, I favor bet's on pairs for the last 10 years or more but there hasn't been enough interest from the players to contact Tex Lot Com  to get it passed.

                        so what you are saying is, lets say I pick 123 as my numbers, and I say 1 and 2 wil be drawn as a front pair (exact) and 125 hits. I would win 25 or 50 dollars depending on how much I bet?
