I average $18 per week (2x Powerball @$5 and 2xStupid 6 @4 or less). Given the odds for what I'm after, it doesn't really matter... I'd rather be in for each drawing.
But as for the pick 3, I don't really know because I don't play it (but might start, on paper anyway... to check on some system theories).
What is "6-way"? is that like boxed? In PA, they have a "Super Box" that costs $6 and covers one number in all possible combos straight (cheaper if playing double numbers)... If you are just referring to boxed, in pa, that pays 80:1... wouldn't be interested in spending $70 for a 58% chance at making 10 bucks.
The MOST I have ever spent in one week was $58... only because I tried playing the PB one draw with all 42 powerballs (won $3... didn't put any attention into the white balls... won't ever be doing that again... unless I can figure out the white balls)
The one true instance where odds can be reduced is to play all 42 powerballs with the SAME line of white balls, goes from 120 million to 1 down to less than 3 million to 1... but I'm not seeing the results to warrant such an investment... yet
Playing more than one ticket per game is betting against yourself.
