Lucky......I dont think all the States that have Pick 3 pay out the same, however, the majority of them might pay as Texas does.
For every 50 cents you spend on an EXACT and hit you get $250.00. This equate to $500 for $1.00. If you take the same 50 cents and bet it "any order" it pays $40 ($80.00 for $1.00).
You can also play a 50 cent "Exact/Any Order" and spend $1.00 (50 cents per type) and if hit get $290 or just $40 depending on whether you hit the exact or not. A Combo at 50 cents would be all possible combinations of the 3 digits and would cost you $3.00 for the same $250 if you had the 3 digits that did play.
The Doubles pay out a little different for the "Any Order" and you get more for your $ if you get the digits that do play. You still get the $250/$500 for the 50 cent and $1.00 EXACT play. For the Any Order you get $80 for the 50 cent and $160 for the $1.00.
A combo on Doubles at 50 cents would cost you $1.50 to play...$3.00 if $1.00 combo. Most of the time if I think I have the Doubles but not sure of the exact order, I will spend $1.50 and play the Combo for $250 instead of the $3.00 for the $500.
Still getting 2 digits here
