              were the payouts always the same as now.for instance in the late seventies when a lot of these first started was the payout 500 dollars for a straight pick 3 or did it start out smaller and go up with the times?

                I've never heard of a US pick-3 or -4 offering less than 50% for straight bets or 48% for boxes. Lotteries started these games to try to put bookies out of business.

                  mike i can't remember back that far what the payout was i think it was 500. I do remember that i had 408 cause it was my tag number and i was playing that number on the street and with the lottery.

                        The California State Lottery began on November 6, 1984 after California residents passed Proposition 37, the California Lottery Act, authorizing the creation of a state lottery.
