Hi All:

I have a question that has been bugging me for a long time.  I will give an example so this makes some sense.

Last night the pick three winner in Florida was 0 0 1.  The payout was well over $800,000.  On a normal day the payout would be somewhere in the $400,000 range or lower.  I see this quite ofter with numbers that do not hit very ofter, such as triples say 9 9 9 or one time 0 0 0.

I wonder if the reason is that a lot of people play the same numbers all the time and they finally hit but that is not very scientific or manybe not even sensible.  Another example not long ago was 6 6 6 and the payout was well over 1 million.  I am reallly glad I did not win that one.

Dose anyone have any ideas on this?

 

I wish all your picks are winners and all your winners are monsters

      The payout will always be more for a double (001) or a triple(666) than it would be for a single (123).  Look at the back of a playslip and you'll see that a box single hit pays $40.  A box double pays $80.

      Hope that answers your question.
