Dr., I respectfully disagree. The average Pick 4 player rarely gets any kind of hit, so I think the average 4 This Way player would get more return than the averge Pick 4 player.

Remember, 4 This Way players get a hit better than 1 in 10 times. If you play 10 tickets, each with a different last digit, you're guaranteed to hit. Then, you've got a 1 in 10 chance of getting the next prize tier. See my point?

Plus, combined with your point about pari-mutuel payouts, 4 This Way is better because of its fixed payout amounts. For example, the payout for my once-a-year Pick 4 box hit could get destroyed if it happens to be a popular number combination.








$4,000 may seem low at first, but remember you get a payout for matching less numbers as well. So overall, your overall payout will probably total out better than any other Pick 4 (with the possible exception of MO).

    i'm with rick. fixed payouts are better than pari-mutuel payouts. todd: perhaps you could lobby the new jersey lottery into changing their pick 3 and pick 4 games into offering fixed payouts.






    Well, in NJ's case it's essential considering the always paltry payouts. But MA and CA usually bring out some good payouts, unless it's a popular combo.






    I take that back. The amounts listed were based on a 50 cent play. Just yesterday a $1 play in Pick 4 was worth over $7500!
