    How are the Lewis Class payouts calculated? Can someone explain or provide an example?

    Consider any Lewis class you enter as a generous donation to someone else's shooting fund or beer budget.

    You really don't need to know how it's calculated. It's all done by computer. All you have to do is to look at the results to see if you've won. It's like asking how are saugsages made, you really don't want to know, just enjoy the results.

    acss did the rest of us do something to you that makes us not entitled to the simple version? If you post it here everyone will be able to enjoy the simple version.

    Here is a simple example, with round numbers. Entry is $10 per shooter and nine enter. The scores are: 97,96,96,94,93,92,91,90,90. With three classes the scores of 97,94,and 91 would each get $30. All of the scores are divided into three groups (classes) and the top score of each class is the winner. Ties and total number of entries not divisible by three can make it a little more complicated.

    Eric- I would not be interested in investing my money in something I did not understand.

    The only score guranteed to win is the top score..How much? depends on wether it is to be paid out percentage or hi gun--that will further confuse the masses..Let's say it's hi gun and three tie at top score..they will split the class money (all of it) between them (pay one score only)---if to be paid percentage..the hi score would split the amount paid to hi score be it 50% or however it is deemed in the program to be split and the second score would take its amount as same as the third score would get theirs..Ex. If split 50/30/20% the amount would be split by the shooters on those particular scores per each class paid. Confused yet? As a friend used to say, "Sometimes it's better to be lucky then good" I could usually beat his scores and he usually hit the money. Read the program!! Still don't understand? Actually, a dumb luck bet for most shooters! Save your entry until your turn to buy the beer, then splurge for the crowd.

    Is there any truth to the rumor that the Lewis game was invented by Jerry Lewis? regards, Ed
