      Hello,

      I made a slight edit, to make your subject a more specific.  Providing a specific subject is an important key to getting good response, since many people overlook generic-sounding subjects, and they don't come up in the Search engine very well.

      I hope you don't mind the "enhancement"!

        Here's a link to the payouts for Cash 3.  Very low indeed!  I wonder why...

          I don't know the reason for the low midday payout today.... maybe people didn't put a lot of money on that number. maybe people were glued to the TV watching the hurricane Ike. maybe because it's Friday and a lot of people don't have cash to play numbers.

          I already answered one of your posts regarding the payouts. ... as compared to when they had ball drawings.

              I think the computers are linked together and it prposely picks numbers that will give the lowest payout... we need to complain to our state senators and state reprsentatives to make them go back to using the ping pong balls.. I think it is as crooked as hell//  and we neeed to get rid of that rebecca hargrove ..it is all her damn doing.. the more they make the bigger their bonus.. lets all raise hell until something is done and the game is fair  for all

                How do you figure?

                The p-3 has 1000 possible combos. Surely, it dosen't matter who or what picks the 3 numbers, there will always be a given amount of people who would more than cover the 1000 odds, creating many winners. I don't know what the population of Tennessee is and what percentage play the p-3, but I'm pretty sure it's in the hundred of thousands, if not more.

                Surely there is another reason.

                  quit playing

                   

                  I have been spreading the word.

                  I have emailed the state.

                  They even sent a man down from headquarters (a rep) and questioned my boss about me.

                   

                  I want to see the numbers to how much was collected as to how much was paid out.

                  I dont think people play like they did before the b*tch came to office.

                    They hit their first quad today so we will see if the numbers lighten up..they aren't running too many doubles either..

                    If you know your number is going to hit, have patience and then KILL IT!

                    You never know when you will get another hit.

                      All the payouts in the TN Cash 4 and Cash 3 games are set to yield between 47.92% and 50% payout percentages. Total payouts don't mean a thing unless the total amounts wagered are also published. Then if one were to keep a long-term record of the total payouts vs. the amounts wagered and found a major imbalance there would be a justifiable reason for complaints. When numbers that don't immediately come to mind are drawn (such as doubles or trips) of course the total payouts will be low.

                      Next week's convention for Psychics and Prognosticators has been cancelled due to unforeseen circumstances.
