(The Pick 3 Forum seems to be more for predictions so I'm putting this here).

This is for Illinois:

Pick 3

Prize for \$.50 Wager

Striaght  \$250

Box \$40

Striaght Box N/A

Prize for \$1.00 wager

Straight  \$500

Box \$80

Straight Box \$290 / \$40

/////////////////////

Maybe I'm missing something but why go for \$80 for a Box shen a straight box pays \$290 / \$40. Is the additional \$40 "out of sequence" worth passing up \$290 if your numbers are in sequence?

They're saying that for 1.00 you can play a .50 STR and .50 BOX on the same number. STR pays 250 and BOX pays 40, total 290 for a STR/BOX combination play. STR for 1.00 is like two STR for .50 (pays 500), and 1.00 BOX pays 40 + 40 = 80.  If you did STR/BOX combo 1.00 and only BOX comes out, only .50 went toward BOX, so it's 40.

They could have said it as ".50 Straight Box \$290 / \$40 (total \$1.00)"

The way I'm reading it is \$1 straight box pays \$290 for a straight hit or \$40 if it's not straight, a \$1 box pays \$80 no matter how it hits.

The only * says "if all numbers are different"... in other words, no one would play 222 "box".

Exactly, \$1 straight/box is 290 if it comes straight because if it comes straight u get 250 for the straight and 40 for the box=\$290  If u only get it in the box u get \$40. U r right.

 My NUMBER FELL!!!

Most of our players at store.. go st/box.. Sometimes they have to settle for the \$40.. but there are times they have them st...
