I'm curious how everyone is betting on these pick3 games. Here in NY we can bet Box, Straight, box/straight, combo, 3way, 6way, doubles first2 or last2, and sums. Now I am very new to pick3 and I am not sure how I should do this. So I'm curious what betting strategies others are using. Any help would be great thanks

      Hey ReptiJ,

      If you're new to the Pick 3 game, always start off small. Place $.50 box bets when starting out.

      When you start winning, use your OPM (others people's money) to place higher bets: 

      Combos, straights and pairs. 

      • Straight play, in exact order, pays out $500. 
      • Box play, in any order, pays out $40 ($.50 bet) for singles and $80 ($.50 bet) for doubles.
      • $80 for singles when placing a $1.00 bet and $160 for doubles when placing a $1.00 bet. 

      In my opinion, only play doubles at $1.00. You'll see a decent return. It's the best option. 

      ---------------------------

      Here's a method I learned from lady C:

      When there's a double, for example, 551, create new doubles by using the other odd pairs.

      What this means is: 551 becomes ---> 11x 33x 55x 77x 99

      Just some tips I thought of. 

      Good luck!

        So you don't use the straight/box bet? Seems as though its a nice way to hedge you bet cause you'll win even if your numbers don't come in straight even though the payout is lower.

            Hey ReptiJ,

            Sorry for the late reply. 

            I do. You said it nicely. Although, payouts are lower only if you get box (with singles). 

            So, for my gameplay, I use a cost effective approach and play doubles, str/box bet. 

            That way, doubles always pay out more and it's much easier to hit it straight with a double. It's a win-win, in my opinion. :)

            Good luck!
