At Betslips the straight boxed is crooked, you have to hit a number straight  to get anything.  If it comes any of the other combos you get nothing.  124 hit Tn.  You'd think that if you paid for something you would get it.  You pay double and can't play the other ways on another ticket.  Like a friend of my always say What kind of #$%^ is that? 

 

RESULTS FOR EACH TICKET PLAYED ON 22 APR 2006:
(Each ticket played Straight + Box, $0.25 wager)
------------------------------------------------------------
2-1-4 | Not a match
2-2-5 | Not a match
3-3-7 | Not a match
5-0-0 | Not a match

    I played it straight and boxed and got paid on the box, maybe a mistake somehow. This is the third time for me to play like this and get paid on the box only. Miss Bee

      This should be brought to there attention at once. Because that is misleading. Did anyone get an explanation?

            Making pick 3 plays at Betslips. 

            Play types and payouts

            After selecting your numbers and state(s), choose to play your numbers Straight, Box, or both (Straight + Box).

            • "Straight" means that your selected ticket numbers must match the winning numbers in exact order.  The payout for a Pick 3 straight ticket is 900 to 1.
            • "Box" means your numbers can match the winning ticket in any order.  This gives you more chances of winning, but your payout is less.  A boxed payout is calculated by dividing the straight payout by the number of chances you have with your boxed numbers.
            • Playing "Straight + Box" is a common way to cover both play types at the same time.  Your wager is doubled, but if you hit the Straight, you get both the Straight and Box payouts.

              This sounds like You are complaining about something that is not even correct.

              Janet, why don't you include the entire email so we can check what state(s) you played those numbers in?

              Seems very suspicious that you would only include numbers with no state name + evening/midday.

              Calculating a straight/box is the most basic form of matching, and I highly doubt they would screw something like that up. 

              I will personally place a wager with you that you are mistaken.  Wanna take me up on it?

                teacake,

                Janet makes these kinds of inflammatory comments periodically.  Do not take them at face-value.  I don't know her motivation.  I'm sure everything was correct.  She is probably just upset that she lost or something.

                  I think it must be a mistake, I have been paid on the box every time  three times today alone I had 757 straight and box , and the 124 in Tennessee  I didn't hit them straight but the paid on every box.

                  They have been very helpful to me answering my questions etc.

                    Wow- nice hits today Miss Bee!  I only wish I could be so lucky.  I played all states yesterday straight + box, and I didn't get a single hit.  Ugh!  I'm going to keep at it though, and when I finally hit I'll post my good news.

                      This is due to the wonderful features you have available for us on this sight, I have a lot of time to search numbers and you have  provided me with the tools to search with so thank you very much. It was also your encouraging recomendation of Betslips that allowed me to branch out and try the online play, I  have been lucky, adding to the great posts here by everyone and the tools, make for a winning combination, so thanks to you and everyone.

                            You are welcome Miss Bee. Did you see how quickly the 181 in MI-evening & 363 in MN-evening? That was the companion mirror on both sides. I was looking for the 224 or 244 (224-QC-today) because of the 977 in MD Thursday.
