Sorry for this "newbie" question, but anyone in my city can respond me.

I know there are states that pay if you match 2 out of 3 numbers in any order.

I need to know PLEASE, which states are these, because I want to play a combo numbers set that in FL applies PERFECTLY, but people here (FL) tell me that 2 numbers does not pay prize.

Let me know in which states applies this 2-out-of-3 any order rule, to play through betslips.com :-)

Thanks!

    No state exists where 2 out of 3 in any order wins. The closest to that is in Nebraska with their Combo play, and even then it has to be in the order drawn.

      New Mexico has 4 This Way, which has a prize for matching two.  (Although not a Pick 3 game.)  Puerto Rico has a Pick 2 game.

        Wasn't there a thread here about Massachusetts paying for 2... or was that on a Pick4?

            In Florida you can play Pick-3 front or back pairs, Pick-4 front, middle or back pairs, you must have the exact order correct.  Fantasy 5 gives a free QP for a 2# win.  BobP

              Not a dumb question at all, and you are very right indeed!  Actually, In Maryland state (not the District, as the area has three seperate Lottos--MD, DC and VA) you can play "pairs." 

              So say you want to play 456, you can play the whole number and you can also put, like $.50/$1.00 on either "45" or "56", banking that it will come in that pair.  You can win a $50 max with the dollar play.  Go to their website.  There should be talk of it there.

              Now, this is for their Pick 3 game and it is ONLY for the "Front Pair" or "Back Pair" plays.  I don't know of it for Pick 4.  I am almost certain that game is not included for the 2-digit play.  I just relocated from the Baltimore area back to Atlanta and played the pairs while there.  It's a great system. We don't have that here, unfortunately! 

              CHEERS!

                  Ok, let me see if you can help me in mi idea:

                  I have the following set of numbers (ALWAYS match 2-out-of-3 numbers in FL, in any order- except for doubles):

                  039 - 059 - 069 - 124 - 178 - 278 - 356 - 478 

                  Check it out yourself at flalottery.com

                  So, the big question is:

                  What kind of combination should I do to bet and win?...I know 2-out-of-3 ALWAYS match, so, maybe a maths expert can help here.

                  THANKS!
