        i don't understand the pick 3 game, what is a straight? what is a box? whats is a straight & box? and what is a box only? i don't know i looked on the californa lottery website and that was a payout, box, straight box, etc. i don't understand, its only 3 numbers, how can you make all that up with only 3 numbers?

          Thank you MD and congrats to PacAttack.

          I don't know what happened with that second post for 7/20.  I think that I forgot (I am 62 you know!) that I had already posted for the 20th and it was late in the day.  I rushed it!

          Here are my picks for 7/21:

          419, 481, 489, 719, 741, 748, 749, 781, 789, 819

            Let's say you pick the 3-digit number 123.  Those numbers have 6 ways to be drawn (123, 132, 213, 312, 231, and 321).  You can play the number straight which means you will win if you picked 123 and it comes in in that EXACT order.  Any other order (e.g. 213) you loose.

            If you bet 123 BOX, then you will win if that number comes in in ANY order.  Of course, it pays much less that the straight because it is 6 times easier to hit!

            When you bet straight/box you are splitting your bet.  Here in California the ticket still costs $1 like straight or box bets, but you are actually placing 50 cents on box and 50 cents on straight.  So you will receive one-half of the payout for box and one-half the payout for straight (if your ticket hits).  Naturally, if the number comes in exactly as you mark it on your playslip, you will get the payout for box and straight (again 1/2 of the regular payout because you are betting 50 cents on each).

            I hope that helps.

              Here is the payout for the Pick 3 in California for last night's draw:

              Winning Number = 647

              Matching Numbers Winning Tickets Ticket Value
              Straight 32 $ 607
              Box 109  $ 96
              Straight & Box 126  $ 352
              Box Only 574  $ 48
               
              Total Winning Tickets 841 

              There were 32 tickets that people had selected 647 and chose straight.  They got paid $607 (and will, BTW, have to go to the lottery office and fill out paperwork and wait for their check and pay taxes on it, etc., etc.)

              There were 109 tickets that the people selected BOX.  They could have put the numbers in any of the 6 ways, but they still won $96.

              There were 126 tickets where the people selected "straight/box" on their play slip and the number came in EXACTLY as they played them on the playslip.  So, they get paid for the straight and box, but only 1/2.  They received $352 (the better way to play pick 3 ... no taxes ... no paperwork, etc.) which, if you do the math, is 1/2 of the $607 straight payout plus 1/2 of the $96 box payout.

              Finally there were 574 people that played the 647 as a straight/box but they did not play it exactly 647 (they played it one of the other 5 ways), so they missed the straight portion of the bet, but did win the box portion, which paid them $48 (half of the regular BOX payout).

              Good Luck.
