I'm having trouble understanding what some of the betting options mean in Pick3 and Pick4, mostly Pick4.  The 50/50 plays don't make much sense to me the way that valottery website explains them.  I don't quite understand the differences in 4-way, 6-way, 12-way.

      The terms "4-way, 6-way, 12-way" just define the type of number (triple, double double, double) that is played, and the type of number determines the prize amount. 

      4-way - triple number that has only 4 different combinations: 4777, 7477, 7747, 7774 (pays the highest of any Pick 4 BOX combination)

      6- way- double double that has only 6 combinations: 4477, 7744, 4747, 7474, 4774, 7447

      12 way- any double number that has only 12 combinations: 1147, 1174, 4711, 7411, 1471, 1741, 1417, 1714, 4171, 7141

      =================================

      A 50/50 play means that you're betting .50 straight AND .50 box on one specific number, and in a specific order.

      Combo means you're playing that number for every possible combination for a straight.  In Ohio it's referred to as a "wheel".

      If you bet a combo on a 4-way number for .50, it would cost you $2.00

      If you bet a combo on a 6-way number for .50, it would cost you $3.00

      12- way combo bet for .50 would cost $6.00 

      =================================

        So the 4,6,12,24 way is determined by the number, correct?  It's not something I choose independent of the number.  If that's the case, I think I understand it a bit more.

          4 way=1112

          6 way=1122

          12 way=1123

          24 way=1234
