How to Play:
Pick 3 ™ is the daily numbers game that lets you choose how you play (Straight, Box etc.). Play a different way every day. Match 3 numbers in the order drawn (Straight) and win up to $500. Drawings are held every Monday through Saturday evening.
You can buy your tickets Pick 3 between 4 a.m. and 9:30 p.m. every day. Sales may resume for the next drawing at participating retailers from 9:35pm until midnight.
Drawing game tickets cannot be voided. All sales are final. Drawing prizes must be claimed within 180 days of the drawing.
Play one game for $1 and win up to $500, or play 2 games for $1 and win up to $250 per game. You have two ways to pick your numbers.
- Choose Quick Pick and let the computer select your numbers for you.
- Choose your own numbers and mark them on the selection slip. Pick one or two sets of three-digit numbers (000 through 999). Now choose how you want to play your numbers: Straight, Box, Straight/Box, Front Pair or Back Pair. The play type you choose determines the amount you win.
Straight = Three numbers in exact order drawn.
Box = Three numbers in any order. Box play has two options:
- 3-way where two numbers selected are the same
- 6-way where three different numbers are selected
Straight/Box = Three numbers in either exact or any order, but you win more if the numbers are drawn in the exact order selected.
Front Pair = First two numbers in the exact order drawn.
Back Pair = Last two numbers in the exact order drawn.
You can play Pick 3 for up to 12 consecutive drawing dates on the same ticket. Just tell the retailer at the time of purchase or mark the Number of Draws box on your selection slip.
There are nine ways to win a Pick 3 cash prize. The play type (Straight, Box etc.) you chose when you purchased your ticket determines the amount you can win. Check your numbers and play type with the winning numbers drawn. See the play examples chart for more details.
Sales of certain number combinations may be limited. Overall game odds vary by play type.
