Why would I lie about what Ky pays out in thier cash 3?..Say I hit a 472 st/bx I'd get 350.00 and if I hit 122 st/bx I'd get 400.00..Look at the Ky site and they will tell you..I would not lie about a thing like that..I've hit them both and got paid that..
I never knew Kentucky Cash 3 paid $600 for a $1 straight, $100 for a 6-way box, and $200 for a 3-way box until I moved here from Ohio. The $600 to $1 is the same payoff the bookies used in the numbers game before pick-3 state lotteries. It makes the math easier because $600 is divisible by 6. Ohio's math for a 6-way box $500/6=$83 is different than Georgia's $500/6=$80.
Ironic that the Georgia state school superintendent missed that math error and believes raising the price of ticket 50% will increase lottery revenues by $350 million.
"Say I hit a 472 st/bx I'd get 350.00"
The same win in Ohio would you get you $291.50 and only $290 in Georgia.
"and if I hit 122 st/bx I'd get 400.00"
When I do play Cash 3 and play a double like 122, I get $1 straight and $1 super-straight (called a wheel bet in Ohio). I think $4 to win $1200 or $600 or $2 to win $600 or $300 are pretty good bets and betting a $1 to win $400 or $100 ain't bad either.
