        I thought I hit on the 16th. I wheeled 911, which is a straight bet all three different combinations. The ticket cost me $3 so it would be the same as if I bought three different tickets for those 3 number combinations. I thought for sure I was going to win $600 but only got $500. No where in their rules that a wheel ticket doesn't count towards this promotion. http://www.michigan.gov/lottery/0,1607,7-110-37982-137658--,00.html  What do you guys think, should they have to pay out the extra $100 on this win.

          I wondered what would happen if you bet say 121.  I figured they would not pay the BONUS.

           

          I don't normaly play 3 digits but I played a couple times with 50cents on 123 and the other 50 cents on 321.  I figured for a buck you have a 1 in 500 chance of getting $300.  It is two different tickets so let em try to back out of that one!

            Solarick Hmmm, I feel they should have paid you. I know box and 2way don't pay in back bonus But I think if you had 3 tickets you would have won $100.00 on 911. But, since it was a wheel they got tricky they cheated you. Sorry but Congrads on your Win!

              I would have played it on three different tickets had I known they were going to pull this trick. I emailed the Lottery and they gave an excuse that they only pay out on the highest amount. That's bull because they pay out both ways on a two-way ticket.

                Solarick They should send you a Free T-Shirt. When I emailed them years ago they ask for my address and sent me one. I agree that's a bunch of bull. I was writing them because I was wondering why it took a certain number so long to appear LOL they gave me a load of bull writing back saying all numbers are randomly drawn and have an equal chance of appearing LOL. I said to myself ok if all numbers are randomly drawn why 123 appear twice a year lol Series Numbers are HOT here people play them daily for lots of money lol. fri, sat, we get crapy numbers when you have the Money to play them.  When you out of money on Monday your number comes out LOL. Good Luck Solarick.

                  Well here is the reply I got from the Lottery PR Department.

                  Dear Player,
                  >
                  > Only one prize, the highest for which a particular
                  > wager qualifies in a single drawing, will be paid on
                  > that wager.  A straight wheel wager which includes a
                  > combination that matches all three (Daily 3) or four
                  > (Daily 4) digits of the winning numbers in exactly
                  > the same order will be paid the full amount of the
                  > regular prize but will not be paid a prize for the
                  > combination matching the winning numbers in exact
                  > reverse order.

                  I just replied back and asked where this rule is posted.

                  So what this is saying I guess is they don't pay it out on Wheel bets and they musy not pay it out on Tripples or when the # is the same as it is reveresed.

                    Wow I wonder what other State had this game and it came here as a promotional try lol. It is only here til the 26th. I haven't heard anyone won that I know. I think it was a rip off to gain more players in the Evening Lottery because it only played in Evening. Most of the player might be going to the casinos here and they not racking in the bucks on the lottery besides on the repeast numbers lol.

                      Here is the answer I got back.

                      Dear Player,

                      The information described below is included in all the point of sale
                      materials.

                      Thank you for the inquiry.

                      Lottery PR Department



                      I have seen this rule anywhere in the Promotional material. The stuff I seen in the stores says 2-way & Box don't count. A wheel bet is a straight bet.
