Calif Midday 4-24-08  Results "777"

Payout= $211

http://www.calottery.com/Games/DailyThree/WinningNumbers/default.htm?DrawNum=7854

This totally pathetic! You get lucky enough to hit a straight pick 3 and they only  pay $211

                                                     Thumbs Down

                                              Kalifornia

 

I wonder what the great payouts are gonna be when the pick 4 starts....

      Pari-mutel payout.

      The state will get their percentage no matter what hits.

      How many payouts have gone over 500 dollars though

        pari-mutuel: A collective system of betting where winners share in total profits/losses.

        Lots of Winners=Low Payouts!

        Low Number of Players=Low Payouts!

        Lots of Winners and Low Number of Players=Really Low Payouts!

        Guess who benefits from pari-mutuel betting!

          All of California lottery games have pari-mutel payouts.  That the reason when MegaMillions has lots of winners in that state the category pays less than the other MM states and when they have just a few winners the cateorgy pays a lot more than the other MM states.  No one complains when they are the only winner in their prize category and get all the money.

                    I've made more playing pick 3 & 4 games then any other lottery game. It's not always about getting "Rich", it's about winning...

                      BA - Is that for a $0.50 bet or a $1.00 bet?  Sounds more like a $1.00 bet.....  The NJ 999, which no matter how you slice it is low, was for a $0.50 bet.

                       

                      Oooops, never mind....just found the 777 in PA that fell on 30-Apr.  Looks like you're referring to a $1.00 bet at $500
