    I'll take the Pick 4. Bigger payouts. But every once in
    awhile I'll play Pick 3.

      me too tinker.the pick 4 offering 2,500 just for a 50 cent straight is too hard to resist.i'm still shooting for that one dollar 9,000 dollar straight online.that would be very nice..........

          it's only natural people would pick p4 ------more bang for the buck.

          neither game will help you buget unless you are winning.

            To win substancially in the pick-3, you have to play straight and play it multiple times. I suppose someone with a good system could play twenty 50 cent straight combinations a draw and show a nice profit at the end of the year too. 

            However most the people I know that play everyday, usually play a dollar back-up on their favorite numbers. And they figured it would make more sense playing the pick-4 the same way because even if they played doubles, the most they could expect to win on the pick-3 is only $666 as opposed to $5400 on the pick-4.

              With Pick 3 odds of 999:1 vs Pick 4 ods of 9999:1 (both straight) and anything under $600 not being taxed wouldn't it be a better move to play the same Pick 3 a few times over?

              (That's assuming a hit of course)

              Or are online payoffs not taxed?

                I chose pick 4..

                With good concentration of Vtracs and playing online, you can snag those trips in pick 4 and double doubles..

                  pick 3 here....cause thats all I ever hit.  I havent put much time into p4 as far as picking out winning numbers as far as pick 3 goes I have won the past 3 times I played  but lost today with mid and eve but lost by 1 number lol.  I got  a great pick 3 winning system I just need to find a good pick 4 system.

                    My systems do a little better with the Pick-4 box than the Pick-3 box. Go figure.

                      I only have access to Pick 3 at the moment, but if giving the choice I would choose Pick 4. I like how it has bigger payouts.

                              first time i ever hit on a lottery ticket i played the 486 ten times for one draw and made 5,000 dollars.
