Michigan Lottery Daily 3 General Information and Links
How to Play Michigan Daily 3 Lottery
From a Michigan Lottery retailer (a gas station, a convenience store, a food store, etc. which plays MI Lottery) get
a Daily 3 playslip. A playslip contains five different play areas. Each play area represents a different Daily 3 play. If you want
to play only one number, fill out only the first play area; if you want to play 15 numbers, then get three playslips and fill all
the play areas of all of them.
Each Daily 3 play area contains three colums of the digits 0 to 9. Mark the first digit of your number on the first column,
the second digit on the second column, and the third digit on the third column. So, if you want to play the number 409, then
4 will be marked in the first column, 0 in the second column, and 9 in the third column. Next select and mark the amount (50 cents
or $1), then select the type of play - Straight, Box, Two-Way, or Wheeled.
Next, present the completed playslip to the lottery retailer to receive your printed ticket. Check your ticket immediately to
ensure that the numbers, dates, and play type match your request.
Play Types and How You Win the Michigan Daily 3 Lottery
There are four ways you can play and win the Michigan Daily 3 game - two basic types and two shortcuts of the basic types. These types
together with how much is paid for a winning Michigan Daily 3 game type are listed below.
The basic Daily 3 play types are:
Straight: You win by matching the winning Daily 3 number in the exact order drawn. For example, if you play the Daily 3
number 409 as Straight, you'll win only if the winning number is exactly 409; you don't win anything if the winning number is 049
The prize of Michigan Daily 3 Straight game is $500 for a $1 game and $250 for a 50¢ game.
Box: You win by matching the winning Daily 3 number in any order. For example, if you play 409 as Box, you'll win if the
Daily 3 winning number contains the three digits 0, 4, and 9 in any order, such as 049 or 940; but not if any one is missing like 408.
The prize of Michigan Daily 3 Box play depends on whether one of the digits is repeated or not. A number such as 409, where none
of the digits repeats is called a 6-way box and pays $83 for a $1 game and $41 for a 50¢ game. If one of the digits
is double, like 007, then it is called a 3-way box and pays $166 for a $1 game and $83 for a 50¢ game. There is no
Box play for numbers with all three identical digits such as 777. These Daily 3 numbers can only be played straight.
And the shortcut play types are:
Two-Way (Straight/Box): is simply a combination of a 50¢ Straight play and a 50¢ Box play. This play type is designed
simply to save you time; it is a shortcut of playing one game of Straight and another game of Box of the same number. That is, instead of
filling one panel for 50¢ Straight and another panel for 50¢ Box, of the same number, you might as well fill out just one
panel and mark it as Two-Way. Note that the minimum amount for a Two-Way game is $1.
The prize of a Two-Way play is the sum of a 50¢ Straight game and a 50¢ Box game. For example, if you play 409
as Two-Way, and if the winning number is 409, then you'll win $291 ($250 for the Straight part + $41 for the Box part). If
the winning number is 490, you'll win only $41 for the Box part since you did not match it Straight. How much do you win with
Straight/Box of the number 007? (Answer)
Wheeled: This is the same as playing Straight all possible combination of the selected number. For example, if you want to win
$500 on the number 409 in any order, then you have to play all the possible combinations, namely, 049, 940, 094, 409, 490, and 904,
at a price of $6 ($1 for each). The shortcut is simply to fill out 409 and mark Combo for $1; you'll still pay $6.
A $1 Wheeled play of double numbers such as 007 costs $3 since there are only 3 possible combinations(007, 070, 700). Wheeled is
commonly known as Combo play in other states.
