Went to the WWW california daily 3 for info. I saw the how to play page. If the winning number was 529, then what are all the winning combos for the straight/box option? I understand the straight and match any order, but the 2 identical 1 unique is bugging me. (599,959,995)These are the 2 identical 1 unique numbers given.For 529 wouldn't 522,992,552,229,559,  also be included as winning combo?Please help!!!

No, newguy.  There are 6 ways 529 boxed could come.  None of the combinations you mentioned would be applicable because all 3 of the numbers didn't show.  Some states do allow bets on front and back pairs -- say you could bet on the 52 and/or the 29 -- but have to bet specifically -- would not be part of the straight and/or boxed bet.  Maryland pays \$25 for front or back pairs on a 50 cents bet.

The two identical numbers identify what we call a double number 11, 22, 33, 44, 55, 66, 77, 88, 99, 00.  A double consists of 2 identical numbers and 1 different number.  i.e.  112 (the 11 is the identical pair and the 2 is the   "different".  Hope this helps.

If you know your number is going to hit, have patience and then KILL IT!

You never know when you will get another hit.
