I played 8357 today Straight/Box and it came 5378. I went to check my ticket thinking I had won $3,125 only to find out it was only )125 or $150 I was so mad I forgot. The clerk explained if it had came straight I would have gotten more. I thought when you play $1.00 Str/Box you get 3,125 and straight pays 6,000. Can somebody explain this to me???
When you play str/box for $1.00, its also called a 50/50 bet. In other words .50c straight - .50c box. The only way you win a
straight bet is if your # comes in straight exactly the way you played it. You played 8357, it hit as 5378. You didn't win. If
you play $1.00 straight then you get $6,000 if your number comes in. But you did hit box so it wasn't a total loss.
Also if you click on lottery results on the left side, then click on your state, click on more, then game info. it will tell you all
the prize payouts.

The numbers will tell you what numbers to play. Pay attention to the numbers.
Don't just think outside the box, crush it.
