A ‘serious’ approach to hitting six-spot ways

Mar 20, 2001 7:03 AM

Today’s favorite ticket is a serious ticket, comprised of six-spot ways. I’ve hit a multitude of solid sixes on it. One of its charms: it’s marked using 24 numbers. This ticket has a lot of numbers, so its frequency of payoff is high compared to some other 20 way sixes.

To play this ticket, pick your 24 best numbers using the method of your choice. Out of the 24 numbers, circle four groups of four and four groups of two, for a ticket grouped 4-4-4-4-2-2-2-2. Sixteen of the six-spot ways are comprised of a group of four and a group of two. The remaining four sixes are comprised of three groups of two.

This is a great ticket to play the special rate six on, at 50 cents per way. While a regular rate six-spot normally pays about $1,500 for a dollar ($750 for 50 cents) a typical special rate six-spot pays $2,600 for a dollar ($1,300 for 50 cents). That’s below the threshold for filling out a tax form. You can even hit another five of six or two and still get by.

For the adventurous, there’s also a 31-way eight on the ticket, 4-4 (6 ways), 4-2-2 (24 ways), and 2-2-2-2 (1 way.) Have fun and make some cash!

The ticket is at right:
