      That's the way it is listed on this site.  You might ask Todd about it.  When I play online, if I'm doing a lot of numbers at one time, I just play box.  It there is a triple in the group of numbers and I win, it pays like a straight anyway.  We often talk about 3-way numbers (numbers that have doubles), 6-way numbers (no doubles), and triples are 1-way numbers, although we usually don't call them that.

          Hmmm...That's interesting that online companies would pay a trip at the same odds as a straight even though you would play it boxed. Makes no sense to me. May be something they (the online companies) haven't realized they are shorting themselves on. Like that one company (sounds like "rimes") that doesn't have the CT Mid day available, but has the Iowa games available...which means they don't understand that all Iowa does is use the Illinois P3 draws as theirs. So anyone playing Iowa and Illinois could just as easily double-up their wagers on Illinois; since that's where the drawings come from.

            The online service you are talking about pays according to the odds when you play a box.  Here is what they pay for a BOX:






            Unique Digits


            3 Pick Payout


            4 Pick Payout


            1


            900 to 1


            9,000 to 1


            2


            300 to 1


            2,250 to 1


            3


            150 to 1


            750 to 1


            4


            NA


            375 to 1



             

            Notice that for a BOX they pay according to how many unique digits are in the winning number.  This, in fact, makes a LOT of sense.  So, for a BOX that has ONE unique digit (a triple) they pay 900:1 (same as if you played it straight).
