*IMPORTANT: Marking “Straight/Box” wager will increase the amount of your wager.  Straight/Box wager is 2 wagers in 1.  50¢ Straight + 50¢ Box = $1 wager.  A $0.50 wager on a Straight or Box play will reduce the prize by half.  A wager over $1 will multiply the prize by that dollar amount.  Wager amounts higher than those shown above will multiply prize by that dollar amount –e.g. a winning $3.00 Straight wager would be worth $15,000, etc.
