Way ticket


A way ticket can be defined as a keno ticket marked with at least three equal groups of numbers, each group combining with the other groups to form several straight ticket combinations. A way ticket might look like this, with the fraction is referring to a three-way eight-spot.

Note that each circled group contains four selected numbers, or four-spots. Therefore, when playing this ticket, each four spot combines with the other four-spots to make three possible eight-spots. This means that there are three possible combinations of eight numbers from the three four-spots selected.

To show this more clearly, if we number each four-spot as A, B, and C, the following eight-spot combinations can result: AB, AC, and BC. Each of these groups now contain eight numbers and therefore this ticket will be written as a three way eight-spot. We are using twelve numbers in all to catch an eight-spot winner, giving us a little more leverage in selection.

The ticket shown is written for $2.10, which means that you would pay 70¢ per way, but in many casinos it could be written for only 35¢ a way, even though the house has a 70¢ minimum.

Way tickets are simple to write and simple to figure out, and give you added possibilities for winning by having, in this case, twelve numbers working to win your eight-spot selections with.

When you have a hand that is rooting for a call in games, you should not try to make your opponent fold by betting an exorbitant amount in a no-limit or pot-limit game. Such a situation came up one day when I was playing no-limit hold 'em. There was one card to come, and I had a straight which games, at that point, was the nuts - that is, the best possible hand in poker. I bet something like $50, the player to my left called, and the player behind him called the $50 and raised the rest of his money, which was about $200.
