Every player is different and have different reason why they play a certain way. I would like to play $1 straight only to win $500. But most of the numbers I catch come out boxed for a $40.00 win so I stick with the $1 Str8/Box play most of the time. If I am playing a double number I will play it combo.

    I play, straight on one ticket,  str/box, on another ticket, and if I like the number, I'll play it straight/box, 10 times.

     

    Good Luck.

    The Struggle is real!

      The cashier where I play told me he won $3,300 on 515 because he played it 10X str8/box. I wanted so bad to tell him if he had played it combo for $3.00 and $7.00 str8 he would have won $4,000. But he was so excited about his win I decided to let him enjoy his moment.

        Depends on how many combinations I have as to how I play.  I try to keep them down as few as I can and if I really like a number I will go $1.00 on it several times.  Otherwise I will play it Exact/Any Order.  For Doubles I usually play a 50 cent Combo because if I am gonig to spend $1.00 Any Order I might as well spend he extra 50 cents and hit it Exact.  Seldom play a $1.00 Combo on Doules unless I feel strongly that Doubles are about to hit. In my system I have a way to tell whether Doubles are about to hit or not.

          Thumbs Up you have to play as SMART as possible to maximize your wins.

              I play str8 99 percent of the time.....$2 a day budget prevents all other wagering types.

              When I get sick of losing after along time of chasing a str8,I play 4 pairs for pair bets  on mid draw but that is usually short lived.

                Most days I am a straight shooter if I am very confident of my numbers. I play online most often so it's cheaper to combo than at the store.

                  Str8 only 99% of the time. I figure once you have gone past the box payout before a win box plays are all losers from there.

                  I do not play a lot of numbers and focus on str8s. Gives me that extra time advantage for a win. Get a str8 hit close to each other in time frame adds a bonus to the pot.

                  Figure how many numbers you play and how long before you need a win to stay ahead.

                  For double numbers I may go combo for a str8 win.

                      Buck str8 and combo the dubs when I get the itch.

                      Buck str8/box if it's just a twitch.

                        I play box because I am still new to the game and don't want to lose as much money while I am still in the learning phase.

                        .... and so it was.

                          I play mine straight multi times and boxed for the minimum. The doubles I like to do superstraight multi times up to 4 and
                          sometimes 6 times each sometimes with a side straight bet on one fav set up too.
                          If I like a straight set up, I'll go $40 on IF I really like it.
                          Triples when I'm covering them I go $1 on the less favored and $5 - $20 on the ones I see as better.
                          I have put $40 on 999 on and off but only had $1 on 000 when it came out in PA, booo.

                          746 struck my fancy today. $40 straight. Big Smile

                          GOOD LUCK ALL!

                            I play a group of #s & then I pick one of the them out of the group with more money into it.

                              I   play  the  same  way   

                               

                               

                               

                              Sometimes  I   will  go  for   the  50  cent box  or   the   1.00    box  only
