How do I Play Ohio Pick 5 Mid Day Draw?

PICK YOUR NUMBERS: Ask for a Quick Pick and let the lottery terminal select the numbers for you, or choose five numbers between 0 and 9.

BUY YOUR TICKET: Pick one of four different play types: Straight, Box, Pairs or Back-Up Bet.  Cash 5 tickets cost either $0.50 or $1 per play.

PLAY MULTIPLE DRAWINGS: You can play your numbers for up to 10 consecutive drawing dates on the same ticket. Just tell the cashier at the time of your purchase or mark the Advance Play box on your selection slip.

What are the Ohio Pick 5 Day Play Types?

STRAIGHT: Match the winning numbers in exact order to win.

BOX: Match the winning numbers in any order to win.

PAIRS: Pairs betting is wagering that the first two, three or four numbers or the last two, three or four numbers selected, in the exact order, match the numbers drawn by the Ohio Lottery.

BACK-UP BET: Back-up bet combines both a straight bet and box bet on one ticket.  If your straight bet wins, you win both the straight amount and the boxed amount.  If your numbers don’t match the straight, but match a combination of your numbers then you win only the boxed amount.
