NM starts "4 This Way" September 26. NM will draw a 4-digit number, but there will be no "box" or "combo" bets. You win by matching all 4 digits, or the last 3, 2, or 1.

    it is a very stupid game.  they should allow players to chose how much they want to bet, and the prizes should be better.

    I've redone my website.  Go to www.dr-ew.com.  I kept a lot of the old stuff, and I've added some new stuff.  Look for more new stuff in the coming weeks.

      they also shouldn't make it so you have to hit straight.  they should allow boxed bets.

        I like it!

        A Pick 4 game that gives a chance at $4,000, plus has a great chance of winning a lower-tier prize is awesome.

        One of the reasons I dislike regular Pick 4 games is that you so rarely win anything.

          $4,000?! Most games you get $5000, and in MO and IA you get $6,000.

            No, JimmySand9, only the lucky states get fixed payouts.  In my home state of NJ, the average prize is about $2,500 for a straight Pick 4 win.  It can be much less though.  So NM's $4,000 payout is awesome.

              todd:

              You're comparing a 50c bet with a $1 game.

                it looks as if the players in NM like the game, so it must be working.
