What Are the Best Pick 3 Systems?

There are many ways to bet in Pick 3 systems. The odds are comparatively lower than most lottery systems there is. With high probability, the top prize, however, is comparatively lower than most lottery systems. It’s easy to bet in the Pick 3 systems; just choose any three digits, place your bet and have faith afterwards. If you are looking for the full share prize, the best Pick 3 systems bet is the straight bet wherein you choose three digits in exactly the same arrangement. For instance you chose the numbers 4-5-6 in exact order; you win if the winning number is 4-5-6. The odd for this is 1:1,000. If you think that odd is way too high for you, you can opt to bet in box combination in any Pick 3 systems.

Box combinations can be 6-way or 3-way with which you can choose three digits in any combination. In the six way-combination box, you choose three digits, place bets with the possible matches. For instance, you chose 4-5-6; you can win if the numbers are 456, 546, 645, 465, 564 and 654. In the three-way box combination, you choose three digits having the same two digits. The chance of winning is 1:168. For instance, if you chose 445, you can win if the winning numbers are 445, 454, and 544. The chance of winning with this type of Pick 3 systems is 1:333. If the said odd is still way too high for you, you can bet with any two numbers in the three digit combination. You can bet with the front pairs, the back pair and the split pair. The probability of winning is 1:100.

With such a comparatively high probability, many self-named geniuses out there might be boasting that they have finally found the secret mathematical formula in determining the next possible winning digits in the Pick 3 lottery. Be wary of their persuasive words because the more that they claim that their techniques are accurate, the more you should be doubtful. The first thing that you should consider before you become enticed in buying their systems is to determine the odds that are involved. If the odds are low, then you must start doing some little research about the techniques that they are claiming to be effective. Most often they will pay other people to say positive things about them or endorse them in any other way. It pays you well if you can obtain a little information such as the name and address of the person claiming the veracity of the words of the lottery system seller. For sure, they will hide it under anonymous names. If the case is such, the next thing that you should look for is the “money back guarantee” ads on their site. The last resort in determining if their systems are truly effective is to try it.

If you want to beat lotteries, you must obtain a system that is remarkably effective with lesser percentage of loss compared to win and whose formula is based on the past winning number results, number shifts and angles and whose techniques are well-proven.

Making Money Using Gambling Systems to Supplement Your Income – The Truth

To many people, the life of the professional gambler seems glamorous and inviting. But as in most cases in life, gambling, like any profession that offers the possibility of high rewards, is difficult and demanding. The truth is that most people who manage to make any profit from gambling over the long haul, work very hard, and have to sacrifice to earn the money.

When I say earn, I mean just that. I don’t mean to discourage you if you have your heart set on being a professional gambler, but knowing what you are getting into before you begin is one of the best ways to make sure you will succeed. You can make money from gambling systems if you have enough money to fund your bets and support you while you learn the game and adapt the system to suit your own talents and style, but being under funded is the number one reason that many gamblers fail. Gambling, even if you are very skilled, still involves risk and therefore losing streaks. It takes money and discipline to survive the lean times.

Surviving the losing streaks financially and emotionally is the mark of a true professional. One thing that professionals use to keep their sanity and not go on tilt permanently is statistics. I know you think that statistics are used by many gambling systems to beat the games, but they are also used to reassure the players that the tide will eventually turn in their favor. That is the strength of a system, whether it is a poker, blackjack, roulette, horse racing, dog racing, craps or any other system.

That is the good news about using a systematic method to beat any game. The not so good news is that no one is going to sell you a way to make a killing at any game right out of the box. You will have to take the information they give you, adapt it to your own talents and style, and then work very hard and endure the ups and downs of the gambler’s life.

When I say adapt the system, I mean that a good gambling system will teach you certain statistics, or situations to look for in any game. For instance, a poker system might teach you how to figure pot odds and play position, while a horse racing system might teach you how to spot an overlay or a false favorite. The most important lesson you can learn from any gambling system is how to spot a good bet. But any of these lessons will do you no good unless you have the personality to take advantage of them.

For instance, if you are a person with a limited attention span who needs fast action and stimulation to remain focused, grinding out a living sitting for hours counting cards at a blackjack table won’t work for you. On the other hand, a system that teaches you to scan the toteboard at the race track and to spot an overlay and then to bet and see the result of the bet in two minutes, may be better suited to your personality type.

Finding the right system to match your personality is the most important part of gambling success after understanding what you are up against, of course. The next most important step is taking the time to learn how to gamble successfully while making small bets. To learn any other trade, you have to go to school or learn on the job. The same is true of gambling. So research the games and systems to find what is best suited to you and then prepare by practicing and slowly increasing bets as you learn the game. That is the best approach to success in any endeavor.

The Numbers Game: Over 100 Years of Playing in America – From Organized Crime to State Coffers

The illegal profits were enormous and the mob had full control of what was called the Numbers Racket in America. Runners were employed to collect money and betting slips from the betting parlors (taverns, grocery stores, news stands, etc.)and bring them to the headquarters, known as a Policy Bank. This is where Organized Crime ran the business.

Bettors could wager as little as a penny on a 3 digit number for a chance at a 600 to 1 winning payout, although the true odds were 1,000 to 1.The winning number would be the last three digits of the amount of money wagered on race day at a major horse track in the U.S.

An accurate portrayal of the numbers racket activity was depicted in the 1949 movie, Force of Evil, staring John Garfield.

Numbers Become Legal

In 1967 the New York State Legislature became the first state in the nation to legalize playing the numbers. What was once called the lowest, meanest, worst form of gambling in New York, was now permissible to play at age 18.

Profits to the state from the games would benefit education and put more money in state coffers. To accomplish this the state would now operate and manage daily drawings. Innovative ways to play 3 and 4 digit games were introduced. The Numbers Racket quickly became the Daily Numbers Game. Organized crime eventually abandoned this venue.

Today playing the numbers is permissible in 47 jurisdictions. 44 states, District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands.

Here is a description of two popular daily numbers games:

3 Digit Numbers Game

Drawings are held twice a day, mid-day and evening. Wager as little as fifty cents per game. Here’s how you can wager:

  • Straight – Assume your favorite number is 620. If the winning number was drawn in that order, you win $250 for a fifty cent bet, $500 for a dollar bet.Note that the government payout is 500/1. The mob payout was 600/1.
  • Box- wagering that the number would be drawn in any of the six possible combinations: 620, 062, 026, 206, 260, and 062. The payouts are $40 for fifty cents, and $80 for the dollar bet.
  • 50/50 – you can also make a straight/box wager for a dollar. The win amount is the same as a fifty cent bet.
  • Combo/Wheel – If your number has two like digits such as 332, wager a fifty cent or one dollar combo, AKA wheel, for $1.50 or $3.00 to win $250 or $500 for any of the three ways the number can be made: 332, 233, or 323.

4 Digit Numbers Game

Winning numbers are also drawn mid-day and evening. True odds for the straight win are 10,000/1. The state pays 5,000/1

  • Straight – Four unique numbers such as 1948 pays $2,500 for fifty cents, $5,000 for a dollar bet.
  • Box – four unique numbers has 24 possible combinations. a fifty cent box pays $100, a dollar box pays $200.

Other four number combinations with two or three like digits can be played for all possible combinations, four way, six way, or twelve way.

The reverse side of the betting tickets for the numbers games usually have a detailed description of how to play, and the payout amounts.

With long shot odds of 1,000/1 and 10/000/1, numbers wins are rare, but they can happen. If you choose to indulge, Good Luck!

Ohio Pick 4 – Learn How to Win Now!

Winning every little challenge in life is already such a great feat for any individual. It heats up that dying hope that tomorrow will be a better day for him. But what if your winning is blessed with money? For example is winning that Ohio Pick 4 game? You may be taking that next great beach vacation out of town.

But, aside from the rewards of money, playing number games or the lottery can be a very entertaining activity or hobby amidst the stress of daily life. It brings fun and excitement as you wait for your supposed-to-be lucky numbers match the winning numbers. So, if you have not tried any number game, why not go for an Ohio Pick 4 game and get the chance to win?

Ohio Pick 4 game offers three kinds of bets that you can place – the Straight bet, the Boxed bet, and the Back-Up bets. The Straight bets happen when the numbers you have chosen are drawn in exact order to win. Amounts of wager vary from $.50 to $6. The Boxed bets happen when the numbers you have chosen are drawn in any combination to win. Same amounts of wager with Straight bets. The Back-Up bets make a combination of a Straight bet and Boxed bet in a single ticket, but should be place in $1 wager. So, what happens in a Back-up bet is that you have the chance to win the Straight bet and the Boxed bet if your straight bet gets to win. But you get to win only the Boxed bet if a combination of your numbers comes out and your numbers fail to come out straight.

By the way, Ohio Pick 4 still offers four kinds of Boxed bets:

o 24-Way Boxed Bet. This bet is consisting of four different numbers like 1,2,3,4 that has 24 various possible winning matches. Giving you 24 ways in winning, it also gives the lowest payout. This is considered the easiest box.

o 12-Way Boxed Bet. This bet has two same numbers like 1,2,2,3 and

o 6-Way Boxed Bet. This bet has two sets with the same numbers like 1,2,1,2.

o 4-Way Boxed Bet. This bet has three same numbers like 1,3,3,3. This has the highest payout since it only has 4 possible combinations. This is also probably the least box bet to take a win.

Like Pick 3 game, Ohio Pick 4 is held on a daily basis that is seven days a week every 12:29 p.m. and 7:29 p.m. It is also broadcasted in all states. Odds and Payouts for the game vary depending on your bets and the choice of your box.

Ohio Pick 4 is really fun game. You can choose the numbers and pick your favorite numbers so you can match them out. You may loose at first. Then, win the next jackpot. Or go back to losing the game again. But that is what games are all about after all.

Diceless Dice Game!

I heard about this game a few years back, but hadn’t experienced it first hand until this past Labor Day weekend.

Craps played with cards instead of dice!

I was visiting my sister in California and we decided to go and check this game out at one of the local Indian Casinos. In California, the gaming laws allow for cards only, you can’t use dice or spin a roulette wheel with a ball. Everything must be determined with cards.

Roulette played with cards was equally interesting, but I’ll save that one for another day.

Anyway, here is how it works.

They use 6 decks of cards; each deck has 36 cards (consisting of the 36 different combinations of the dice). Each card has the image of one of those combinations (i.e. 6 + 5, 3 + 2, etc.). They are all shuffled and put into a machine that continuously shuffles all of the 216 cards.

There is no need for a stickman, so the game is dealt with 2 dealers and a boxman, the boxman handles the cards and the proposition bets.

The table layout is exactly the same as a regular craps table with the exception of two boxes above the proposition bets; one is marked blue the other is marked red.

Prior to the deal, the “shooter” chooses which color box will be used (similar to choosing 2 of the 5 dice offered prior to rolling). That color is then used until that “shooter” sevens out.

Three cards are dealt, one is burned, one is placed in the red box, and the other is placed in the blue box. Whichever color box the “shooter” has chosen is the card that is exposed and thus the “roll of the dice”.

All bets and payouts are the same as a regular craps game.

Now here is my take on the game.

The most obvious observation is the lack of excitement and emotion that normally surrounds the craps table; it doesn’t have the same feel and excitement of a regular dice game. There is something about rolling the dice and calling for a number that makes the game of craps what it is.

Also, even though they do a good job of shuffling the 216 cards, the total randomness of the roll of the dice is not there.

I know the odds are still the same, but much like the computer generated numbers in online craps, the total randomness is gone, hence numbers are slightly more likely to act according to the odds.

I believe this may be the perfect game for the Don’t Pass and Don’t Come bettor. The number 7 is more likely to come up on schedule.

And most “Don’t” bettors don’t throw the dice anyway, and seldom cheer or celebrate at the table.

Now, don’t misunderstand me, betting against the shooter is just as good of a play as betting with the shooter, it just doesn’t happen to be my way of playing the game.

So for me, this is one game I will put in the column; just not one of my games.

Know your play. Know your way.
