i just started playing the Daily 3  but i don't understand one of the rules...

its shows says...example
-------------------------------------------------------------
Playstyle Match all numbers and win If your number is
Straight Match exact order                    529
Box Match any order (3 unique digits)       529
         Match any order (2 Identical & 1 Unique)      599

Playstyle Winning number is Odds Prize
Straight 529                  1 in 1,000      pari-mutuel   
Box 529,592,952,925,259,295  1 in 167 pari-mutuel
           599,959,995                        1 in 333       pari-mutuel

------------------------------------------------------------

where it says match any order (2 Identical & 1 Unique) , so would 522 (etc, all combination of 5 2 9 with and minus one of the number) Box playstyle be a winner also ??? since the example just says 599,959,995 confuses me.... i'm thinking what about 229, 299 etc...

    Prize is pari-mutuel*
    *Pari-mutuel prize amounts will vary depending upon sales levels and number of winners.

    cost to play a combination is more if you play 3 single digits. 126 cost more to play.

    a double number like 522 cost less to combinate

     

    box bet match in any order means 599 995 959 wins the box bet in any order

    combinate 599 and or 126 win the straight bet regardless of which way the number comes out.

    Big John says. You don't hit the number. The number hits you!!!!

      wow so some states pay a "pari-mutuel" on the pick 3 ??  i didn't realize that

      NC just pays a flat pay...

      wonder which system is better ?

        rteague,what is your flat pay? That's a good question, which one is better. I have seen the Calif. pick 3 pay in the low $300's to $700 for the straight. On average I would say it's in the $400 and above range from what I've seen. But over time how does that average out against a flat pay out? Hmmmm...

          Flat Payout!

          Check out the NJ Pick3 Recent Numbers Page and see what Pari-mutuel Payouts look like.

          A mind once stretched by a new idea never returns to its original dimensions!

            For $1.00 Ks P3 pays $500 for a straight. For a $1 in box/any order it pays $160. I usually just play the .50 so everything is half

                California is different than other states, because of the gaming with Indian Gaming there was a law suit years ago which determine that the amount given should be divide in a larger amount depending on how many tickets were bought and how much was in the pot which makes the amount fluctuate.  In other states such as Michigan, New Jersey, Tenn, etc.  it is a set amount.  Each ticket in Cali purchased is a set amount of $1.00 and not .50 which again can be play in other states as well, that is why it is called para-mutual it always changes depending on the amount played for that game whether midday or daily (evening).

                  NC Pick3 payout:

                  $1 ticket...$500 ( exact )

                  .50 ticket...$250 ( exact )

                  $1 ticket..box or 50/50 pays $40 on a box hit and $80 if doubles

                  $1 ticket...box or 50/50 pays $290 on a straight hit and $330 if it's a double and straight

                  there's a couple more ways also but this gives you an idea
