Box Bet 

A numbers game wager where the player selects numbers without regard to the order in which they are drawn. For example, if the numbers "1,2,3" are drawn, the combinations "1,2,3", "1,3,2", "2,1,3", "2,3,1", "3,1,2", and "3,2,1" all win under a box bet. 

Boxed 

A way of betting a three or fourdigit number that will pay off if the three or four numbers you picked are drawn in any order. So, for example, if you play the number 374, you will win if the number drawn is 374, 347, 734, 743, 473 or 437 

Boxing 

As in a Boxing System. This is a system used to play more digits than you could normally play in a three or fourdigit numbers game. It works just like Wheeling Systems do for lotto games. As an example, let's say you have five digits you think are good possibilities for tonight's threedigit numbers drawing (such as 1, 4, 5, 7, 8). If you just mix and match those five digits into threedigit numbers you will probably leave at least one of the ten possible combinations they form (boxed play) unplayed. A Boxing System gives the exact placement of the five digits in all ten combinations so that there are no holes  and guarantees a boxed winner if the three digits drawn are among the five you selected 

Break Open 

An instantwin ticket on which the player tears open a flap to see if the ticket is a winner. Also called pull tabs. Break opens are often sold by charities and occasionally by state lotteries.
