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

* you don't need to buy more tickets, just buy a winning ticket *

Yes, a  6 way box consists of a combination of two double digits numbers..Example are 2525, 4040, 4455... The pay outs are higher on these combinations...I've hit only only on this combination, I played 2255 and 2525 came in, I played it box for 50 cents and won 400.00

I played 2845 50/50, and it came up 5842. I got \$100 for a boxed win. Is that correct? If only the 2 and the 5 had been reversed, I would have won \$2600.
