To select your numbers, you may use the pulldowns or use the text box located to the right of the pulldowns. By using the text box, you can play multiple numbers and confirm all numbers at once. Use a comma to separate each number combination. Once numbers are entered in the text box, any numbers chosen in the pulldowns are disregarded.

Choose if you are playing your numbers Straight or Boxed. Straight means that your numbers must match the winning numbers in exact order. The Payout for a Pick 3 Straight ticket is 900 to 1. The Payout for a Pick 4 Straight ticket is 9,000 to 1. Boxed means your numbers can match the winning ticket in any order. This gives you more chances of winning, but your Payout is less. A Boxed Payout is calculated by dividing the Straight Payout by the number of chances you have with your Boxed numbers.
Drawings - Select the drawings in which the winning numbers will be used. You may check off as many drawings as you would like to play.
Off times are shown in Eastern Standard Time and are 15 minutes prior to the drawing. If you select a drawing for today whose Off Time has passed, you will be purchasing a ticket for the next drawing. This will be reflected in the Confirmation window and Review Tickets window.
Place Wager - Select the amount you wish to wager per drawing per day. Select the day you wish to start your tickets on (based on Off Time, some tickets may start on the next drawing day). Select how many days you want to play your numbers. The cost of your tickets is Amount of Wager x Number Of Drawings x Number Of Days. For Example Playing a $1.00 number in 3 drawings for 2 days would be $1.00 x 3 x 2 = $6.00. If you select a drawing that is not played on Sundays, the ticket will be for the next day.
Click on Purchase Ticket when your are finished with your selections. This will bring up the confirmation page which shows you the details of your tickets. Click on Confirm Purchase to actually place your wager. You can check on your tickets and results in the Review Tickets window.
Payouts - The following table shows the payouts for all Straight and Boxed Number combinations.

Review: The 5Dime site now appears to be the remaining 900 to 1 online daily number game. If you want to play Pick-3 for a $900. prize, this is the place. I understand it's getting a bit tricky for U.S. citizens to play online games, but it shouldn't be a problem for residents of countries where freedom still means what we in the U.S. pretend it does. Anyway, 5Dimes has stood the test of time, paying their winners quickly, few reports of problems in the forums except for cheaters who open mupliple accounts for bonuses, no suprise that gets nixed. If the only thing that has been keeping you from cleaning up at Pick-3 has been the low prizes paid, now you can turn that around.
Here is something you should know and understand about gambling online as a U.S. citizen.
Interstate transmission of bets or gambling information can qualify as legal only if both the state of origination and the state in which the bet is placed allow such wagering. As such, an Antigua company's taking of bets via telephone from a resident in Massachusetts is considered a criminal act under federal law, despite the fact that it is legal to take bets in Antigua. Only the party, however, "in the business of wagering or betting" (e.g. the virtual casino, not the user) can be convicted under the statute. WagerNet's registration agreement therefore requires the user to warrant that he is using WagerNet "for [his] own personal use and [is] not 'engaged in the business of betting or wagering'" in an effort to avoid violating U.S. Federal law. Legislation has been introduced to prosecute those who use online gambling sites, punishable by up to $5,000 in fines or a year in jail or both. Currently, however, only the virtual casino can be prosecuted and not the site user.
