in other words is having three pick three and pick four draws a day too much?

    I say, the more the merrier. Oregon has four Pick-4 draws a day, 1, 4, 7, and 10 PM.

      how are you this morning hosni.i'd love it too and especially if i was playing quarter bets online.i could see three draws happening eventually in certain places.your right oregon does offer pick 4 four times a day.i hit oregon last april on a quarter pick 4 bet and won 2,250 bucks so its always been a favorite.

          I wish there was one every hour from 10am to 10pm, every night. Of course the payout might be less, but then the cost of playing should go down also, like maybe 25 cent bets.....LOL

          In california, they have this horse betting game which is similar to p-3, and you can play it at most bars and some grocery stores. It runs every 5 minutes. I love it... It can be played at any store that has a lottery terminal.

            pacattacko5... here is some information on games available in California.  Note as I only play Mega Millions and Super Lotto Plus those are the games I am most familiar with.

            The horse betting game is called Daily Derby and as billed it is played daily.  It is similar to a p 3 game, you pick three horses and also a time for the race.

            The game that is played throughout the day is called Hot Spot.  It is similar to Keno and runs every 4 minutes from 6:05 am until 1:00 am

              Yes,CA guy is correct. That Daily Derby is only once a day and believe me,Pac, it's not worth it. So hard to win and it's $2.00 a ticket!

              The Keno's a rip too.

              I think 2 draws a day is plenty for any games,otherwise there would be more people with gambling problems,as if there aren't enough already!

                  Idaho only has one pick 3 per day, and even that gets too expensive to play if you're the type (like me) who has favorite numbers you feel you have to play each draw.  I don't play pick 3 at all cuz it would cost $6 a week just to play one set of each numbers for each draw.  If there were 3 draws per day that would be $18 per week, or $21 if your state draws on Sunday.  Too much for me to spend.  I'd rather spend my lottery money on the big jackpot games ~ ie Powerball.

                      Yes, that's the one. I thought it was the daily derby that was played every 4 minutes. I should have known....DUH!....."DAILY" derby...LOL

                        I think it would be a great idea..you know you would play if there was a 3rd or 4th draw...because you like the excitement of the game..the anticipation you get right before the draw now..dont you..lol..you know its true..that is why you watch it when you can and you hold your breath until the numbers are posted if you didnt get to see the draw..lol..its just a small moment of pure pleasure when you see the numbers and you have them on your ticket isnt it?..lol..Its a reward for all of the hardwork you out into finding those numbers..Kudos to everyone who gets to feel that...or maybe I just feel a little different myself..I enjoy the HUNT!!!!!!dont get me wrong..I enjoy the money as well..High Five on the Topic Mike..

                            2 draws a day is already a drain on my pocket. 3 draws a day would be a bit much.
