Pari-mutuel payouts mean you may win less than the prize shown on prize tables such as those on the website, How to Play Brochure or play slip. The NMLA cannot exceed paying out more than the set pari-mutuel threshold dollar amount for any Pick 4 Plus play type in a single draw. If the prizes won in a drawing for a play type exceed the pari-mutuel threshold set by the NMLA, then that maximum amount will be divided and paid equally among the number of winning plays. For example, if the pari-mutuel threshold for the Straight prize is set at $70,000, then 14 Straight winners would win $5,000. However, if there are 16 Straight winners, they would each win $4,375. The pari-mutuel threshold amount is posted on the Pick 4 Plus webpage.
