Hi,

 Not sure if this is the right forum for this question ,if not I apologize . Can anyone tell me how much money can be bet on a # before it gets closed out.For example I'm in NY, do I have the ability to bet  lets say $128 or $256 on a pick 3 box combo ?  (not all on one ticket of course)

                                         thanks, J.

    They will close out a particular number only if it reaches the point that so much is bet on it that if it fell, paying the number of winners would exceed the amount taken in by that particular game. You should have no trouble betting that amount unless a whole lot of other people are too.

      NY has a 5 million dollar cap on any 3/4 digit game also the Pick 10 game the game becomes parimutuel ,  mostly everyday the triple numbers are all sold out so you have to play them sometimes days ahead or you are out of luck unless you play online or know a bookie in town!  SO the NY lottery will not pay out anything over $ 5 million on any given drawing sometimes it goes over a few thousand BUT we all know that in NY the lottery commission NEVER loses.
