    We have it here in Jersey as well. To me it is just another play designed to squeeze more out of the player. For another 50 cents, if my number comes in straight which by the way has NEVER happened to me, I get half of what I would have the conventional way.  I've played about twenty tickets to give it a try. I won back $6.50 Not a fan.

      Thanks Woody for your input. I'm going to run it a few times for the hell of it. Cheers

        Is Close Enough the same as the Lucky Sum on your pick 3 and 4?

        We have Sum It Up which is the same.  I don't have much luck picking 3 so I got a QP just to try out the SIU and won $6 or $7 on the sum.  Played it a few more times and won $47 with an any-way match plus the sum.  Now I've played it another dozen times without even coming close to matching the Pick 3 or the SUI and I'm about ready to stop playing it.

          close enough is when you one up or down of the number drawn. Example you play 524 and the number 614 comes in. This means you had two digits close enough which gives you $3

            I play close enough sometimes in NJ P4, but it doesn't pay u every time. I don't why either, but when it does, it's worth it. I also like auto match option too.

              These are the CloseEnough Combinations for 524:

              624 424 534 514 525 523

              634 614 434 414 625 623 425 423 535 533 515 513

              635 633 615 613 435 433 415 413

              A mind once stretched by a new idea never returns to its original dimensions!

                    Missouri calls this 1-Off but the payouts are better, $4, $9 and $29 on a $1 play.

                    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.
