How to Play
To play Daily 3, players choose three numbers from 0 to 9 (the same number can be selected more than once) and can choose whether to play in the next Midday or Evening drawing. After this, there are various bet types to choose from, which offer prizes when certain combinations of your chosen numbers match the winning Daily 3 numbers. The bet types are as follows:
Straight bets win when the numbers chosen by the player match the numbers drawn in the Daily 3 Lottery in the exact order. For example, if you play the numbers 432, you only win if the numbers 4, 3, and 2 are drawn in that order.
With a Box wager, your chosen numbers must match those drawn in any order. Your wager is considered a 3-Way or 6-Way Box depending on how many possible combinations of your chosen numbers there are. For example, there are only three possible combinations of the numbers 112 (112, 211, and 121), so this would be considered a 3-Way Box. The prizes awarded for 3-Way Box bets are greater than those of 6-Way Box bets, as the odds of matching the correct numbers are higher.
For wheel bets, you place a $0.50 or $1.00 stake on every combination of your three chosen numbers. A Wheel bet is considered a 3-Way or 6-Way bet depending on how many combinations of your chosen numbers are possible. For example, a Wheel bet on the numbers 112 would be considered a 3-Way Wheel, as there are only three possible combinations of those numbers (112, 211, and 121). If you placed this as a $1.00 Wheel bet, it would cost $3.00 in total, as you're betting $1.00 on each of the three different number combinations. A $1.00 6-Way Wheel would cost $6.00.
With 2-Way bets, you place both a Straight bet and a Box bet on your chosen numbers. You can only place a $1.00 stake on this type of bet, as it is split in half, with $0.50 going on the Straight bet and the other $0.50 going on the Box bet. The same Straight and Box bet rules as above apply in a 2-Way bet.
You win a 1-Off bet if your chosen numbers match those drawn in the exact order (the same as a Straight bet), or if one of your numbers is one up or one down from the numbers drawn. For example, if you chose the numbers 345, you would win a 1-Off Straight bet if the numbers drawn were 3, 4, and 5, in that order. You would win the 1-Off Up and Down bet if any of the numbers 245, 445, 335, 355, 344, or 346 are drawn, giving you six additional winning combinations.

How to Claim a Prize
Players have up to one year after the date of the winning drawing to claim any prizes. After this period, unclaimed prizes will be distributed in accordance with state lottery regulations.
As the jackpot is under $600, all Daily 3 prizes can be claimed at any authorised Michigan Lottery retailer. Simply take your winning ticket to the retailer, who will validate it and pay out your prize. Note that Lottery retailers are not required by state law or Lottery rules and regulations to offer prize redemptions, so if they do not have sufficient cash available, you may not be able to redeem your prize at that time.
