      I chose pick 4 too.. After hitting several doubles and triples in pick 4.. the $37.50 pay out for a pick 3 box doesn't do much for me.. lol

      This year started out great with pick 4.. I just cannot focus that much on pick 3 any more..  Still expecting lots more this year...

      Mike you are doing great with those sts..  Hopefully I will be come talented enough to lay off boxes.. lol  Til then.. I will be happy with the profit being made.

        My game is pick 3 exact order.

        Just like George Sedertree said one time.

        Why go fishing in the ocean with larger odds when I can fish in a fishbowl with better odds.

        Or something like that.

            Depends on what has the larger jackpot so I can't really pick one. I don't play unless the jackpot is a certain size in relation to it's odds.

                    I'd have to go with pick 3 and 4 since there is a better chance to win playing these games all the other games are next to impossible to win.

                    I'd chose pick 3 over pick 4 because you don't have to pay taxes on your win. Therefor you can bet your maximum dollar amount. Put 50 bucks on a pick 3 number and hit it straight is better than 5 dollars straight hit on pick 4.  Same money but one comes with a tax liability the other doesn't.

                    Pick 4 has more bang for the buck but can make a person feel ripped when they take the taxes out. You win 25 grand on pick 3 you keep all the money. You win 25 grand on pick 4 there gonna take close to 6 grand or more of it. Of course were talking states side bets. I don't know about the off shore sites pick 4 wins if they send you a tax form then your gonna end up paying the state.

                      Mike, you forgot about KENO. 

                      Well, I would choose KENO, not that option here though. :) (and I did not want to choose other)

                      Keno is not in my state. :(

                          I think keno is a fun game if you have money to throw away. I have never seen anyone win consistently I've seen people play the game for hours on end and win nothing and a few times I've seen people win most of their money back after a few hours of losing. Keno is a take in game meaning they pay out a percentage of the take. Mostly they rob people of their hard earned money. Occasionally some sap wins a big chunk. Many people I've seen play keno are also hooked on coin slot machines and will spend till it hurts before they will quit. Then there are the lucky beginners people who have never played before play a few games and for whatever reason win a huge chunk. Then thinking they have some magical touch spend twice what they won trying to double their money.

                          I've been told that playing keno in Vegas is better than states wise games as they have better odds there. Best times to play keno are lunch and dinner time, days when there are lots of people watching some great sports at local taverns and such. And day when it raining outside the reasoning behind this is more people are indoors and many take a chance at keno thereby increasing your odds of winning because the take in is better so the payouts should be too.

                            I live in NY, but because of the TERRIBLE payout % it's not NY Rotto. Mega Millions and Powerball are my choices. Connecticut Classic Lotto is far better than NY Rotto.
