The Minnesota Daily 3 features 6 play types, that include Straight, Box, Straight/Box, Front pair, Back pair, and First digit. Before starting, a player must first choose their desired play type, then set a wager amount between $0.50 and $5. After this, they can choose their numbers which draw they’d like to join, and how many consecutive draws to enter. A wager that is above $1, multiplies your prize by the same dollar amount.
