This was on the tickets today (number games):

Tuesday Evening Pick 4 #1414 had a 358% payout

Total payout total this week is $1,471,700.

Not sure if that total is for Pick 4 or all games.

I'm thinking it's all games.

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

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.

    Sort of odd they used a percentage (358%) to show the Pick 4 payout without showing any figure. Maybe 358% higher than average but useless unless players know the average payout. The total payout for the week is probably just for the Midday and Evening Pick 4 drawings.

    Had someone who played 1414 frequently been visiting KY on Tuesday morning and played it for the midday drawing and drove back to Illinois and played in the evening drawing, they could have hit straight twice in the same day in two different states.

      Thanks for the info, Stack47.

      Missouri gives a daily tally of Pick 3 and 4 payouts but Illinois doesn't, only gived payouts on Little Lotto, Lotto, PB and MM in-state.
