Just curious if anyone knows why the predictions statistics don't show winners for the pair/split in Play 3?  Here in CT we win $25 on pairs 12x, 1x2 or x12.  What gives?

    We win $25 on front or back pairs here in Illinois too but you have to play only pairs

    and your ticket will look as you illustrated 12X or X12.  There is not even an option

    to post predictions for just pairs so there will be no stats on them.  I believe Puerto

    Rico has a pick 2 game (Pega 2) that will post to the prediction board

      The predictions pages calculate all stats in a way that all states are the same.  The prizes for every state on the predictions board are the same for every state, even though many states have slightly different prizes.

      This enables the ability to compare prize stats between states, which is impossible if the actual prizes are used.

      If the stats were calculated using the actual prizes, someone who wants to artificailly boost their statistics could post numbers only in the states with higher payouts, and would appear to be a better player than someone who posted in states with poorer payouts.

      The results of this would be that people would avoid posting predictions to states with poorer payouts in order to avoid bad stats.  That would be a very bad thing for a thousand reasons, which I'm sure you can imagine.

          So in Conn. if you win a 50/50 Str8/Box you win $290 plus $25 for the pair?

          Illinois pairs game is separate

            I think I was off on the CT rules, looks like the CT pair bet is completely seperate from the Straight/Box bet.. Which would make sense.

            When we win the Straight bet, we're paid out for Straight + Box, nothing for pairs.
