IN  N.J SINCE  GAME  BEGAN  THERE WAS 17,863 DRAWINGS IF YOU  PLAYED EVERY TRIPLE  EVERY  DRAWING IT  WOULD  HAVE  COST 178,000 DOLLARS,TRIPLES  CAME 204 TIMES,ON  AVERAGE  PAYOUT  OF   140.00   U  WOULD  HAVE  LOST 158.000 DOLLARS  APPROX, SO  TRIPLES  ARE  A  BAD BET. TO    PLAY    A  TRIPLE  PICK  THE  ONE  OUT  THE  LONGEST. AND  FOLLOW  THE  DIGITS THAT  ARE NOT RUNNING WELL,  I  DONT  PLAY  TRIPLES AT  ALL. A  TOTAL  WASTE  IN  MY  BOOK.

      I never play triples, especially in California.  We have pari-mutuel payouts.  One, it's a 1 in 1,000 odds to hit a triple (I like to play str/box) and two, in California, it pays less because so many people play triples.  Case in point, on February 27, 2014 evening draw, 2-2-2 was drawn, our most recent triple.  Guess what the prize was?  $256!

        Ontario's The Same(Pari Mutuel)

        I Don't Play Them Either.The Last One Hit In August

        The Last 2 Triples Here Paid Out $380 & $300 But Often Are Lower Than That.

        Any Other Straight Will Pay Pay In The $500-$600 Range

        Today's Mid Of 103 Paid $610
