    I rarely play all three or four numbers (I like pairs personally), but when I do always play both. If I play box, i'm afraid of kicking myself if the straight combo comes up. And if I play straight, I'm afraid I'll get all 3 or 4, but in the wrong order. Ohio isn't just whistling Dixie when they call this option "Back-Up", it really is a back-up.

        well always st & bx ...even if my strongest feelings are on a number in a straight order like i will put 1 or 2 dollars sraight and then i will  throw 50cents on it boxed just in case..and majority of the time it comes in boxed so yea ALWAYS cover all angles ; )

              My vote is for boxed because if I miss by just one number straight, I don't win. Therefore, luck is very important.

                You don't have to  bet just 25 cents on a box. Costs more in P4 to cover the equivilent of all straights in boxed form, but in P3 you can play a combo boxed for $1.50 and if it comes in in any of the perms, you win the $225.00 you would have won if yo uhad picked it straight....and you don't have to worry about which straight to pick.
