  • Exact Order - You win if your numbers match the winning numbers in the exact order they are drawn.
  • Any Order - You win if your numbers match the winning numbers in any order.
  • Exact/Any - For a little extra money you can play both Exact Order and Any Order. You win if you match the winning numbers in Exact Order or in Any Order.
  • Combo - Simply a convenient way to play all possible Exact Order combinations on one ticket.

Third, choose your play amount.

Fourth, choose the number of drawings you want to play with Multi-Draw. You can play your Pick 3 numbers for up to 24 consecutive drawings. To play consecutive morning, day, evening and night drawings, just select the desired number of drawings. You can also play your Pick 3 numbers for up to 24 consecutive drawings for a particular draw time. To play only morning, only day, only evening or only night drawings, mark the desired draw time (MORNING, DAY, EVENING or NIGHT) and select the desired number of drawings.

Fifth, SUM IT UP!® For as little as 50 cents extra per play, Sum It Up! provides another way to win if the sum of your Pick 3 numbers is the same as the sum of the three single-digit numbers drawn in the applicable drawing. For example, if you play the Sum It Up! feature and your Pick 3 numbers are 1-2-3, then the sum of your numbers is 6. If the sum of the three numbers drawn also equals 6 (whether they match your numbers or not), then you win!

You do not have to win the Pick 3 game to win the Sum It Up! feature. Sum It Up! can be played with any of the Pick 3 play types.
