How to Play West Virginia Lottery Daily 3

First off, walk into any retailer (a gas station, a convenience store, a food store, etc. which plays West Virginia Lottery) and grab 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 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, or Straight/Box.

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 West Virginia Daily 3 Lottery

There are three ways you can play the West Virginia Daily 3 game - two basic types and one shortcut of the basic two. These types are listed below.

The basic Daily 3 play types are:

  1. Straight: You win by matching numbers in the exact order drawn. For example, if you play 195 as Straight, you'll win only if the Daily 3 winning number is 195; you don't win anything if the winning number is 159 or 196.

    The prize of West Virginia Daily 3 Straight game is $500 for a $1 game and $250 for a 50¢ game.

  2. Box: You win by matching numbers in any order. For example, if you play 195 as Box, you'll win if the Daily 3 winning number contains the three digits 1, 5, and 9 in any order, such as 951 or 519; but not if any one is missing like 196.

    The prize of West Virginia Daily 3 Box play depends on whether one of the digits is repeated or not.

    • A number such as 195, 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 884, 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 666. These Daily 3 numbers can only be played Straight.

And the shortcut play type is:

  1. 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.

  2. 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 195 as Straight/Box, and if the winning number is 195, then you'll win $290 ($250 for the Straight part + $40 for the Box part). If the winning number is 159, 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 800? (Answer)
