I am trying a little experiment to see if a couple more prize breakouts would be useful for numbers games (Pick 3 and Pick 4).

Is adding Straight + Box (24-way) - Straight match and Straight + Box (24-way) - Box match useful information, or does it add too much clutter?

 

Please check out without the additional information:

And then check out with the additional information:

Thanks for helping with feedback!  Please post any thoughts here.  (Only thoughts related to the prize payouts table please!)

    I'm not a regular P3 or P4 player but in my opinion, more information is always better than less.

      I play 'em all rdgrnr Big Smile More info would be excellent if it were - sorry Todd - not so redundant. One problem with the payout example for Virginia

      is the secondary information is based on a wager of .50.

      Any additional information added should be something that gives players something useful. I love the new information but if you're listing what

      can easily be added mentally, IMO, it is just another form of information that is already there in the first example.

        Payment info is based on $1, including the Straight + Box.  It costs $1 to play Straight + Box and win the amounts shown.

        The reason I did not find the Straight + Box easy to calculate is that you have to mentally divide each prize in half before adding them.  But then again, people differ on this, which is why I'm asking for input! Smile

          Todd,

          There is no clutter with the addition of the straight + box. Matter of fact, if someone plays multiple tickets and the draw in Play 4 is a DD, Triple, it helps to have that info, to add up my winnings.

                  I don't think it adds too much clutter.  One would have to click on prize payouts to see the "clutter" and if they are clicking on prize payouts in the first place, the extra info might be helpful to them especially if they are new to the game.

                          Hi Todd,

                          I just went into the results module for NJ to verify the numbers that I have in my spreadsheets.

                          It was so nice to be able to click next to the winning numbers and see what the prize payouts

                          were.  Thank you so much for adding that feature. 

                          Karinda

                            I may be wrong here Todd but I think when you started out with LP it may have been an idea or experiment. As the years went by those idea's have multiplied and will probably mutiply even more as new idea's emerge . Some are suggestions from members but most are your idea's I think .  If it weren't for experiments that may have been thought of as clutter . LP may not not have become the biggest and best lottery site on the web .  Just my thoughts .

                             

                             Good Luck,

                            Blackie.
