The Numbers Game Bet Explained
The Numbers Game is based on a pari-mutuel payoff system. In other words, the size of the payoff is determined by how many people play and how many win. There is a single pot made up of 60% of all the money bet for each day.
The game design is based on daily drawing of a 4 digit number. There are 2 separate betting slips…the 1&2 digit betting slip and the 3&4 digit betting slip.
3&4 digit bets would include: All 4 exact order, all 4 any order, 1st 3 exact order, last 3 exact order, 1st 3 any order, last 3 any order.
You can play 3&4 digit exact bets for $.25 to $5.00, and play $.50 to $5.00 for any order bets.
1&2 digit bets are always exact order bets and can be made for $.50 to $10.00.
First 2 exact order, Middle 2 exact order , Last 2 exact order, 1st digit, 2nd digit, 3rd digit, 4th digit.
A combination bet, or COMBO bet is a series of exact order bets which allow the player to place a bet on all possible exact order combinations of any 3 or 4 digits numbers. For example: a 3 digit number has 6 possible exact combinations (123, 132, 231, 213, 321, and 312). A combo bet on 123 for a $1.00 would cost $6.00 dollars but it pays the exact order payout if any of the 6 possible combinations were drawn. (An exact order payout is always considerably higher than any order payout.
A 4 digit combo (i.e. 1234) would cost $24.00 because there are 24 possible exact combinations. and it would pay the exact payout.
Another term sometimes used by players is ACROSS THE BOARD : For example, an across the board $1.00 bet on 1234 would cost $6.00 dollars because there are 6 ways to play:(1234 exact, 1234 any order, 123 first 3 exact, 123 first 3 any order, 234 last 3 exact, and 234 last 3 any.
