A cut-off on betting certain combinations is nothing new. Pennsylvania started liability limits in 1989. On the Missouri Lottery page, they spell out the liability limits at the bottom.

garyo1954,

Was this right after it had been rigged to hit 666?

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.

    I bet you are right CT. The only link I found to it was dated November 16, when the announcement of the liability limits were going into effect. But makes sense, that would be about the same time the lottery official committed suicide on tv. I think. Don't get me lying :P

       Should a lottery be able to cut off play on a pick3/4 number. The number came in Maryland 1111 and it was cut off as of yesterday.

      Lotteries have the rights to limit their liabilities to what they can payout without going bankrupt.

              Probably because the rest of us know if you're going to play highly played numbers like triples and quads, to bet them early. There is no state lottery with fixed payoffs that will book any size bet.

                That happened on April 24, 1980. It's ironic one of the reasons they were caught was because of the "illegal" bets they made with bookies.

                  If you play certain numbers that are popular or are special holiday numbers buy them early since you now know that the state limits the number of tickets sold for each number.

                    I went to put $5 on 1111 on Nov. 11 and was told the number was "sold out" in my state...

                      This year you may want to get an earlier start, maybe even get a multi-draw ticket several days earlier.
