Let me offer a contrarian opinion:   why not use what you have originally written?   Right now (except for the cryptic variable-names), even though there is obvious redundancy among the various cases, the redundancy is obvious, and each of the separate cases can readily be compared by eye.   Furthermore, right now, none of them are “coupled” to one another:   each one could, should the need arise, be revised arbitrarily without impacting any other.   Never underestimate the creativity of the Marketing Department to throw a monkey-wrench into the barrel of cleverness.   “Reducing the number of lines” might not be a good thing to do; it could sometimes even be an ill-advised thing to do.
