Washington Lottery The Daily Game General Information and Links
How to Play Washington The Daily Game Lottery
From a Washington Lottery retailer (a gas station, a convenience store, a food store, etc. which plays WA Lottery) get
a playslip for The Daily Game. A playslip contains four different play areas, marked Panel A through Panel D. Each play
area represents a different Daily Game play. If you want to play only one number, fill out only the first - Panel A; if
you want to play 12 numbers, then get three playslips and fill all the Panel, A to D of all of them.
Each Daily Game play panel contains three columns 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¢
or $1), then select the type of play - Straight, Box, Straight/Box, or SuperBox.
If you are playing Front Pair, mark only the first two columns of the digits and leave the last one blank, then mark "Front Pair".
If you are playing Back Pair, mark only the last two columns of the digits and leave the first one blank, then mark "Back Pair".
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. The retailer can cancel the ticket within a few minutes after it
prints. However, a retailer cannot cancel a ticket sold for a given draw after sales have been suspended for that drawing.

Play Types and How You Win the Washington The Daily Game Lottery
There are six ways you can play and win the Washington Daily Game - four basic types and two shortcuts of the basic
types. These types together with how much is paid for a winning Washington The Daily Game type are listed below.
The basic The Daily Game play types are:
Straight: You win by matching the winning The Daily Game number in the exact order drawn. For example, if you play the The Daily Game
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 Washington The Daily Game Straight game is $500 for a $1 game and $250 for a 50¢ game.
Box: You win by matching the winning The Daily Game number in any order. For example, if you play 409 as Box, you'll win if the
The Daily Game 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 Washington The Daily Game 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 $80 for a $1 game and $40 for a 50¢ game.
- If one of the digits is double, like 007, then it is called a 3-way Box and pays $160 for a $1 game and $80 for a 50¢ game.
- There is no Box play for numbers with all three identical digits such as 777. These The Daily Game numbers can only be played straight.
Front Pair: Just select the first two digits to win $50 for a $1 game and $25 for a 50¢ game. For example, if
you play the front pair 40 (i.e., 40X), you'll win as long as the first two digits of the winning number are 40 in exact order.
So, you'll win with 400, 401, etc., but not with 940 or 049.
Back Pair: Just select the last two digits to win $50 for a $1 game and $25 for a 50¢ game. For example, if
you play the back pair 09 (i.e., X09), you'll win as long as the last two digits of the winning number are 09 in exact order.
So, you'll win with 009, 109, etc., but not with 490 or 094.
And the shortcut play types are:
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 Straight/Box. Note that the minimum amount for a Straight/Box game is $1.
The prize of a Straight/Box play is the sum of a 50¢ Straight game and a 50¢ Box game. For example, if you play 409
as Straight/Box, and if the winning number is 409, then you'll win $290 ($250 for the Straight part + $40 for the Box part). If
the winning number is 490, you'll win only $40 for the box part since you did not match it Straight. How much do you win with
Straight/Box of the number 007? (Answer)
SuperBox: 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 way it is drawn, 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 SuperBox for $1;
you'll still pay $6. A $1 SuperBox play of double numbers such as 007 costs $3 since there are only 3 possible combinations
(007, 070, 700).
SuperBox is called Combo, Combination Bet, or Wheel Bet in other states.
