      Why would you not have played them all as straight hits since you played the 3 way number every way that it could possibly hit?

          Brianjoe,

          I have no idea what that statement means, but if you were going to play the number everyway it could possibly come in you should have played them all straight.

           A "Box" hit means that you have all the numbers but not in exact order.  I think that statement might refer to double numbers, which means that you would get more money for double numbers i.e., If the number were 226 you would get more money for a box hit than if the number were 216.

            695 is a 6 way box hit not a 3 way box hit.

             a 3 way box hit is a number that has pairs like 331

              brianjoe, maybe the word "box" is confusing, depending on what state you are in.  In Texas, our playslips and tickets refer to it as ANY, not Box.  That took me a while to get use to everyone here calling it a BOX hit, etc.

              Anyway, there are usually two ways to hit:  "box" and straight. Straight pays the best and you have to have the numbers exactly like they were drawn.  BOX pays less, but it doesn't matter in what order you played the numbers...you win, if those 3 numbers are drawn (in any order)

                3-way Box:  955

                You win if you played: 955 or 559 or 595 (2 numbers are the same, in any order)

                  Why go out of your way too be confused.

                   Some folks just want too talk.

                  A box is a box is a box.

                  Those 3 digits, in any order.
