    You do, but that's not the problem I'm talking about here. Focusing on the $1000 part, the code I quoted is not correct. The ||s and &&s don't match the ORs and ANDs from the written English version of the logic you posted in post #13. See if you can see where and make it match.

    OKAY FOR THE 1000
    Code:
     
    if (firstGuess == firstResult || firstGuess == secondResult || firstGuess == thirdResult 
    	&& secondGuess == firstResult || secondGuess == secondResult || secondGuess == thirdResult
    	&& thirdGuess == firstResult || thirdGuess == secondResult || thirdGuess == thirdResult)
    	cout << "You win $1,000 " << endl;

    Nice. Does it work? The only thing you might need to add are parentheses around each group of || checks to separate them from the &&s.

    After that, try the written english for the $100 win.
