How to Play Pick 3: Match a three-digit number exactly to win \$500 with a \$1 wager. Exact Order pays \$500For a chance to win \$500, play Exact Order for \$1. If you play the number 123 in Exact Order, for example, you will win \$500 if 123 is drawn in that same order. When you play Exact Order, you do not win a prize if 321 or another combination is drawn. Chances of winning Exact Order are 1 in 1,000. Any Order pays \$80 or \$160The Any Order play has several winning combinations. If you play 123 Any Order for \$1, you win \$80 if the winning number is 123, 132, 213, 231, 312 or 321. With six different ways to win, chances of winning are 1 in 167. If your three-digit number has a pair of digits that are the same, you would win \$160 if you play Any Order for \$1. If you play 113 Any Order, for example, you would win \$160 if the winning number is 113, 131 or 311. With just three different ways to win, chances of winning are 1 in 333. It’s harder to win, so that’s why the prize is higher. Pick 3 PairsTo play Pick 3 Pairs, select two digits and their positions on a Pick 3 playslip. Each Pairs wager costs \$1 or 50 cents.
