The Daily 3 Lotto Game
Daily 3 Lotto is a game that is drawn every day of the week. At 6:26 pm three numbers are drawn each night potentially winning someone as much as five hundred dollars ($500). Many lottery players in Minnesota really enjoy the Daily 3 lottery game so much because you really have control of how you play the game.
Lotto players can bet as little as fifty cents ($0.50) per play and play one, two or three numbers. If you are playing only one number, your odds of winning are one in ten and all you have to do to win five dollars ($5) on a one dollar ($1) bet is match the first number drawn. If you want a little better return on your money, play two numbers for a dollar and your odds are one in a thousand that you will win fifty dollars ($50). Choose to play the front pair or the back pair when you purchase your ticket and win money.
If you really want to win some money you need to play all three numbers. If you should decide to do so, you have several choices on how you play your numbers.

Playing your numbers straight will win you the most money at five hundred dollars ($500) on a one dollar bet, but the odds of doing so are one in a thousand. Playing the box will increase your odds of winning to one in three hundred and thirty three if you choose two numbers that are the same and one in one hundred and sixty seven to win when all three of your numbers are unique. Two out of three numbers that are the same is called a 3 way box and it will pay you a hundred and sixty bucks ($160) if you hit it. It is called a 6 way box if all of your numbers are different. It'll pay eighty bucks ($80) if you win a 6 way box.
Lotto players who want to take advantage of all the options can sacrafice a little of the winnings and play a combo.
