This type of game would be a great for states without pick-3 and pick-4 games because of all the options. Allow players pick-3 straight and box bets on the first 3 digits, the last 3, or even the middle 3 and the same pick-4 bets on the first and last 4 digits.
It might create a dilemma for the players because they could see the digits they picked being drawn in the wrong position; their numbers could be drawn in the last 3 positions when they played the first 3. And even more so in states like PA with traditional pick-3 and pick-4 games where they could see their numbers drawn in the other game.
By just playing the pick-5 game, players can win at least $1000 on a 50 cent box bet. Since the percentages favor 2 of the 5 digits matching, it's more likely to be $2000 and not bad for a 50 cent bet.
Looks ok but they should have done a Pick six version instead. Some people will probably opt to just bet 10 bucks on the pick 4 straight for way better odds at 50Gs. However, I dont believe many people would try at 100 bucks on a pick 4 vs a pick 6 for 500Gs for a buck.
Hello posters, this is my first post. I wanted to ask everyone, how does this new game affect the time limit of the nighttime TV drawings, will more time be added to the TV drawings or not if the game is drawn by a machine for the televised drawings?
