How To Play the Ohio Pick 3 Midday Lottery
Go to any participating retailer that sells Ohio Lottery Pick 3 lottery tickets.
Pick your numbers
Choose three numbers from 0 to 9.
You can either select your own numbers or opt for a Quick Pick, where the computer selects numbers for you at random.
Choose Your Play Type:
Straight (Exact Order): You win if your numbers match the winning numbers in the exact order.
Box (Any Order): You win if your numbers match the winning numbers in any order. There are two types of Box bets – 3-way (two numbers are the same) and 6-way (all three numbers are different).
Straight/Box: Combines both of the above play types.
Back-Up: Combines a Straight bet and a Box bet for one number on a single ticket.
Front Pair or Back Pair: You select two numbers and win if those numbers match the first two or last two winning numbers in exact order.
There are other bet combinations as well, but these are some of the main ones.
Decide Your Wager:
You can usually bet in denominations like $0.50 or $1. The amount you win is proportional to the amount you wager.
For some play types, the wager might differ, so always check before finalizing your bet.
