The Ohio Lottery website explains it this way:
When playing PICK 4, there three types of bets which can be placed:
STRAIGHT BET: If the numbers you have chosen are drawn in exact order, you win.
BOXED BET: If the numbers you have chosen are drawn in any combination, you win.
PICK 4 offers four types of boxed bets:
A 24-WAY boxed bet consists of four different numbers (1, 2, 3, 4)
A 12-WAY boxed bet has two numbers the same (1, 2, 3, 3)
A 6-WAY boxed bet has two sets of the same number (1, 2, 2, 1)
A 4-WAY boxed bet has three numbers the same (1, 1, 1, 2)
BACK-UP BET: Back-Up bets combine a Straight bet and a Boxed bet on one ticket
