i e-mailed betslips and asked them if they would ever consider having a multi-bet feature where you could bet multiple times on the same number in one draw.would you if the option was available?

imagine betting three bucks on a pick four number straight.instead of winning 9,000 you would win 27,000 dollars if your number hit.....

              It is available.  This has been discussed many times already.  I did it yesterday.  Uncheck the "no duplicate" box next to where you enter your numbers.  Yesterday I wanted to bet again on a number that I had already bet on box/straight.  It told me I could not do it because I had already bet that number.  I fooled it by putting the number in using a different sequence and bet it box/straight and it took it!

                CalifDude,

                I think you're both right & wrong:

                That checkbox you're talking about is for Quick Picks only.  It lets their QP gen. know if you don't want to generate duplicate box combos when you add QPs to the entry box.  You can try it out - add 100 QPs with the box checked, and again with the box unchecked.  When it's checked you won't see any duplicate box combos added.

                You are right about playing a number straight mutiple times by playing straight + box using different box combos.  I've done it myself to wheel my favorite number 821.  I played 128, 218, 821, 812, 182, and 281 straight + box, which essentially is the same as playing 821 (and all its other combos) straight twice.  If any form of 821 hits, I'll hit straight once, plus six box hits equals another straight hit.  Unfortunately, I have not been so lucky to hit using that method yet!

                  you woulda done real good with you pick if you played it across all states in the last week or so

                    I could see them setting a limit. Cause potentually a person could take them to the cleaners if they bet big on a number and it came out straight. suppose 20 people put 100 bucks on a pick 4 and it hit the payout would probably exceed their take in.

                    you have to remember it just not a few people who are betting there.

                    if you were a bookie would you take a bet of 20 bucks or more straight. with on person and then have 10 or more people come up to you and ask for a 20 dollar straight bet on the same pick.

                            LottoMike:

                            I don't know what betslips is, but I gather it's an online game.  I'm thinking if I'm going to play numbers at all I'm probably going to have to begin using something of that nature so's to be able to play games I prefer over what New Mexico offers.

                            Having said that, I'll also say when I'm hitting well I frequently buy a lot of tickets with the same numbers on them.

                            I'd probably do it with betslips if they allowed it, and if I used them.

                            Absorb the good, ignore the bad, weigh the ugly.

                            It's about number behavior.
