      Yes, which is a BAD thing. So if you play a number that's popular like 777 and it comes out you will probably win peanuts.

      Play to win!

        pari-mutuel: a collective system of betting where winners share in total profits.

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

          Texas is not.  We have set payouts regardless to the number of winners on Pick 3 and Daily 4.

            Ditto for Georgia.  I know NJ is parimutuel which I absolutely hate!!  A few weeks ago, 769 came out in Jersey and a 50 cents box ticket only paid $24!!  I like knowing what I've won as soon as my numbers come up.
