    Any state that offers front, back and outside pairs allows players to bet on one digit in any digit position, but the payoff is only 67 cents on the dollar. You'll have to bet a minimum of $15 to win $10 or $4 to $1 odds in a specific digit position.

    Texas offers prop bets like sums and I believe every pick-3 game should offer all prop bets and use the same $500 to $1 payoff structure. Bet any two digits, h/l, e/o, sums, etc.

      Stack47,

      This is news to me about any state offering front and back pair, at least for Illinois. I think Illinois has front and back pair but it's not on the playslip. Of course, I've has clerks in Illinois tell me there's no such thing as a 50 cents ticket, and that's on the playslips, so.....

      Missouri has them on the playslip but I don''t think I've ever seen anything about one digit in either state.

      As far as I know, Mass. has no Pick 3, onlly a Pick 4, but on that Pick 4 you can bet Any One, Any Two, any Three, and All or Any Four.

      Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

      Lep

      There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

        Florida has a front and back pair option on the betslip. But one thing they don't advertise is that you can pick one number in any position and mark the QP, and the machine will pick the remaining numbers. Or you can mark 2 numbers and the machine will pick the last one.

        This also applies to all the other games in Florida.

          This is all the Illinois lottery website says about front pair / back pair:

          Match 3 numbers in exact order or any order Back Pair
          X23 10 $25 $50 Match last two numbers in exact order

          Front Pair
          12X10$25$50

          Match first two numbers in exact order

          http://www.illinoislottery.com/Games/Pick3.htm

           

          And this is Missouri:

          $1 Front Pair Exact order (of first 2 digits only)

          52X Any 3 digit number beginning with 52 1 in 100 $60

          $1 Back Pair Exact order (of last 2 digits only) X29 Any 3 digit number ending with 29 1 in 100 $60

          http://www.molottery.com/pick3/pick3.jsp

          The Missouri website has a sample playslip.

          Neither state mentions anything about a single digit payout or an "outside pair".

            Stack47,

            This is Kentucky's Pick 3 page. It shows a Split Pair payout but I don't see any payout for a single digit.

            Pair Games

            • Front Pair – Match the first two numbers in exact order
            • Back Pair – Match the last two numbers in exact order
            • Split Pair – Match the first and third numbers in exact order.

            Super Straight

            Match your three numbers in any order and win a straight payout. Minimum Super Straight wager is $1.50.

            Odds

            PICK 3MatchPrizeOdds Per Play
             
            $1 per play
            $.50 (half prize)

            Box
            (3 different #s)
            $1001:167

            Are you making side bets with your lottery vendor and are they the ones offering you $0.67 on the dollar?

              The Indiana site is pretty weak, doesn't explain much.

              I haven't found a state yet except Mass. that pays "Any one".

              Anybody else?
