Straymar...regarding consolations... Posted on May 16, 2018 at 09:20:02 AM by BB BUDS
Back in the day, when the Pick 3 pools where $700-$2000, like they seem to be now, consolations payoffs for me where VERY IMPORTANT.
As you know, if you put in $27, $64, $125, etc. and you don't hit all the legs, here is why consolations are so good.
Lets say, I bet $64.00 pick 3 wager
4 X 4 X 4 in each game
if the $1.00 consolation pays out $13.80, I would get that 4 times for a total of $55.20 back and only loose a little.
sometimes, its like getting an EXTRA number in the last leg!
a few times, when i used to put in $125 (5X5X5) and i missed the last leg to a conso, I would get back a little MORE than my investment....I'm sure that happened to you to , so you know what i mean.
by the way, good luck in our surge into the TOP 10 in Tigers fantasy contest.
I would NEVER put a penny into bets with no consolations.
