 ### In the order of – WORST to First.

Not saying don’t play these games because (I) do, but I understand the odds and would love to be that (1) out of the millions to win a huge jackpot, so until I win one of the huge jackpots, having the potential of earning thousands of daily works just fine for me! The odds information for all games is clearly printed on the back of all play slips and their websites.

### ODDS INFORMATION FOR PLAYING (5) GAMES

The odds of winning a box wager are not a simple calculation like it is for a straight wager. The odds depend on the number of unique digits in the combination, which affects how many possible combinations can be matched. In the Quinto game, there are seven different types of box combinations:

• Single (120-way): Each of the five positions has a different digit. For example, 23456. Each combination of this type has 120 different box combinations, so your odds of winning by playing one “single” box combination would be approximately 1 in 833.
• Double (60-way): Two of the five positions have the same digit, and the rest of the numbers are different. For example, 66234. Each combination of this type has 60 different box combinations, so your odds of winning by playing one “double” box combination would be approximately 1 in 1,667.
• Double Pair (30-way): Two different digits are used twice. For example, 66223. Each combination of this type has 30 different box combinations, so your odds of winning by playing one “double pair” box combination would be approximately 1 in 3,333.
• Triple (20-way): Three of the five positions have the same digit, and the fourth and fifth digits differ. For example, 88823. Each combination of this type has 20 different box combinations, so your odds of winning by playing one “triple” box combination would be 1 in 5,000.
• Triple and Pair (10-way): One digit is used three times, and another is used twice. For example, 55522. Each combination of this type has 10 different box combinations, so your odds of winning by playing one “triple and pair” box combination would be 1 in 10,000.
• Quad (5-way): One digit is used four times, with a different fifth digit. For example, 88882. Each combination of this type has 5 different box combinations, so your odds of winning by playing one “quad” box combination would be 1 in 20,000.
• Quint: Each of the five positions has the same digit. For example, 11111. Because each quint is unique, your odds of winning by playing one “quint” combination would be 1 in 100,000 — the same odds as playing straight. (A quint is also known as a straight, in fact.)

### ODDS INFORMATION FOR PLAYING (4) GAMES

The odds of winning a box wager are not a simple calculation like it is for a straight wager. The odds depend on the number of unique digits in the combination, which affects how many possible combinations can be matched. In the Pick 4 game, there are five different types of box combinations:

• Single (24-way): Each of the four positions has a different digit. For example, 1234. Each combination of this type has 24 different box combinations, so your odds of winning by playing one “single” box combination would be approximately 1 in 417.
• Double (12-way): Two of the four positions have the same digit, and the third and fourth digits differ. For example, 1123. Each combination of this type has 12 different box combinations, so your odds of winning by playing one “double” box combination would be approximately 1 in 833.
• Double Pair (6-way): Two different digits are used twice. For example, 1122. Each combination of this type has 6 different box combinations, so your odds of winning by playing one “double pair” box combination would be approximately 1 in 1,667.
• Triple (4-way): Three of the four positions have the same digit, and the fourth digit differs. For example, 1112. Each combination of this type has 4 different box combinations, so your odds of winning by playing one “triple” box combination would be 1 in 2,500.
• Quad: Each of the four positions has the same digit. For example, 1111. Because each quad is unique, your odds of winning by playing one “quad” combination would be 1 in 10,000 — the same odds as playing straight. (A quad is also known as a straight, in fact.)

### ODDS INFORMATION FOR PLAYING (3) GAMES

The odds of winning a box wager are not a simple calculation like it is for a straight wager. The odds depend on the number of unique digits in the combination, which affects how many possible combinations can be matched. In the Pick 3 game, there are three different types of box combinations:

• Single (6-way): Each of the three positions has a different digit. For example, 123. Each combination of this type has 6 different box combinations, so your odds of winning by playing one “single” box combination would be approximately 1 in 167.
• Double (3-way): Two of the three positions have the same digit, and the third digit is different. For example, 112. Each combination of this type has 3 different box combinations, so your odds of winning by playing one “double” box combination would be approximately 1 in 333.
• Triple: Each of the three positions has the same digit. For example, 111. Because each triple is unique, your odds of winning by playing one “triple” combination would be 1 in 1,000 — the same odds as playing straight. (A triple is also known as a straight, in fact.)
