How to Play Cash 3:

1. Each play selected will produce a single ticket.

2. DRAWS– Use these boxes to select your draws. Select MID for MIDDAY, EVE for EVENING, or BOTH for MIDDAY and EVENING draws. Selecting BOTH will double the cost for each play you choose (Play Areas A-E).

3. DAYS – You can play your number selections for more than one draw day by selecting one of the boxes marked 2 through 7 on the playslip. The plays will be for consecutive draw days. Remember, if you choose “BOTH” draws (Midday and Evening), your numbers will be played for both draws for each of the number of days selected.

4. Select one to five sets of 3-digit numbers you wish to play by completing the Play Areas A-E. You can have the computer randomly pick your numbers by marking the “Quick Pick” box in that play area.

5. Choose either a $1.00 or a $.50 play, and then pick the order you want your numbers to be drawn. For a $1.00 play, you can choose EXACT ORDER, ANY ORDER, EXACT or ANY ORDER, or a COMBO play. A COMBO play covers all possible EXACT combinations for the 3-digit number played, and will cost you $3.00 or $6.00 based on the numbers you selected. For a $.50 play, you can choose either EXACT ORDER or ANY ORDER only. The amounts you can win are shown below.

6. If you make an error when completing a Play Area (A-E), mark the “VOID” box at the bottom of that play area. DO NOT ERASE.

7. Present completed playslip and total play amount to any Tennessee Lottery retailer selling CASH 3 and you will receive a printed ticket(s) with your selections. Be sure the ticket includes the selections you requested on the playslip. The printed ticket is the only valid receipt for claiming a prize. If the ticket contains an error, request the retailer to cancel the ticket and print one with your corrected selection(s).

Exact Order- Must match winning numbers in order drawn.

Any Order - Must match winning numbers drawn in any order.
