A Simple Example Ohio Lottery Pick 3 Select three numbers from 0-9 with repeats OK Buy a ticket for $1 for a single payout of $ 500 for guessing correctly The probability of guessing one number is 1/10; the probability of guessing three in exact sequence (= straight bet ) is 1/10 x 1/10 x 1/10 or 0.001
