Am I mistaken, I thought 50/50 means if you place it the way it comes for $1 you will win $290, if you place it any other way is $40 for $1.  That's what I have always thought.  Am I wrong?  That's why I usually play any order for $1 for a $80 win for a 6 way number.

Hi WPB-

50/50 means .50 exact will get you 250; .50 any will get you $40.00; say the number hit is 145; and you played it this way, 145; this means you will get $250.00 for it coming EXACTLY the way you played it (145) and another $40.00 for the "any" piece.  Another example, you played 145 50/50; however the winning number was 541; you receive $40.00 on the "any" piece because he other half of you dollar covers any way it comes.  Hope this makes sense.  Basically, if you play 50/50 and the number does not hit exactly the way you played it, you'll still win $40.00.

    Yea but it rewards you either way whereas exact only works if its exact.   

    If you play 50/50 for 1.00 which is the only way you can play it.....then if you get the number exact you will win $290 for getting it exact plus $40 for the "any" part of the 50/50......that is for a 6 way number but if you get a 3 way number you will win $330 if you get the number exact plus you will win $80.

    You are buying a ticket that is half any and half exact.

    Does this make sense?......I am copying this out of the pick 3 brochure.

      That's what I thought.  $40 for a non exact number and $290 for and exact when played 50/50.

          wpb that is for getting a 6 way no. and see above for the 3 way number.

            I have a love/hate relationship with 50/50. This week I've loved it b/c I got hit using it but normally I get the $40 or $80. Usually if i play it I do like WPB and put another $1.00 any if I'm really feeling that number. If its something that I got a strooong feeling on I will play it straight $1, $1 50/50 and $1 any.

                  Here is how it is from the lottery site..

                  How Much Can I Win?

                   

                  Play TypesPrizes for 50¢ PlayPrizes for $1.00 PlayOdds 1 in:
                  *50/50 (Exact/Any) prize for matching “Exact Order” includes prize for “Exact Order” win of $250 plus “Any Order” win of $80 for a 3-way win or $250 plus $40 for a 6-way win.
                  EXACT (Exact Order)$250$5001,000
                  ANY (Any Order) (3-Way)$80$160333.33
                  ANY (Any Order) (6-Way)$40$80166.67
                  50/50 (Exact/Any) (3-Way)N/A
                  ($1.00 Play required)
                  $330* (Exact + Any)
                  $80 (ANY only)
                  333.33
                  50/50 (Exact/Any) (6-Way)N/A
                  ($1.00 Play required)
                  $290* (Exact + Any)
                  $40 (ANY only)
                  166.67

                   

                  What does 3-Way and 6-Way mean?

                  3-Way means that you have chosen a number that has 2 digits that are alike. (Example: 377) Because of that, there are only 3 ways to combine the number selected, 377 – 773 - 737.

                  6-Way means that you have chosen a number that has 3 unique (Example: 368) Because of that, there are 6 ways to combine the numbers selected to win, 368 – 638 – 863 – 683 – 836 – 386.

                  .

                    I did the same thing ladee.  When I first started playing in NC.  I was upset to learn that I only won $40 for a dollar.  I never play 50/50 since.  either it straight or any for me.
