$ in the second slot with 8 possibilities in the left slot and 9 in the right slot = 72 (Double counting must be avoided; hence the 8)

$ in the third slot with 8 possibilities in the left slot and 8 in the middle slot = 64.

Total = 81 + 72 + 64 = 217 possible payout combinations (out of 9^3 = 729)
