How to Play Pick 3:

When playing PICK 3 and PICK 4, there are a variety of bets which can be placed:

STRAIGHT BET: If the numbers you have chosen are drawn in exact order, you win. Wager amounts can vary from \$0.50 to \$6.

BOXED BET: If the numbers you have chosen are drawn in any combination, you win. Wager amounts can vary from \$0.50 to \$6.

PICK 3 offers two types of boxed bets:

• A 6-WAY boxed bet consists of 3 different numbers and six possible winning combinations (1, 2, 3)
• A 3-WAY boxed bet has 2 numbers the same, with three possible winning combinations (1, 2, 1)

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, and must be placed in \$1 increments.

PAIR BETS: In PICK 3 wagers ONLY, players may select any two of three numbers to be selected in order.

• FRONT PAIR: Specify the 1st and 2nd number in exact order: (1, 2, X)
• BACK PAIR: Specify the 2nd and 3rd number in exact order: (X, 2, 3)

SPLIT PAIR: Specify the 1st and 3rd number in exact order: (1, X, 3)

WHEEL BET: The WHEEL wagering option is available in Pick 3 Wagers ONLY. To WHEEL your PICK 3 number, place an individual straight bet on each combination of your PICK 3 number. For example, the combination 1-2-3 WHEELED would yield the following combinations:

1-2-3 | 1-3-2 | 2-3-1 | 2-1-3 | 3-1-2 | 3-2-1

You win straight if any combination of your PICK 3 number comes up!
