El Pale Part 1 – Los Sueños

El Pale Part 1 - Los Sueños

If you don’t know what a Pale is, chances are, that you are not Dominican. A Pale is any combination of 2 numbers that a person chooses as their pick for the Dominican lottery. Typically, depending on where you play your numbers, each Pale pays $1,100 for each dollar a person plays. So if your Pale were to hit and you bet 5 dollars you would win $5,500. The Dominican Lottery’s range of numbers is from 1 to a 100 as opposed to let’s say the Mega Millions, which is from 1 to 46. Back in the day in the 80’s, Dominicans in New York only bet on the Dominican lottery on Sundays. Now a person can play their numbers, if they know where to go, any day of the week.
