Pick 3™ Evening Pre-test Results

pick_3_logoA pre-test is an unofficial drawing that tests the machine and the ball sets used for a Pick 3 drawing. Pre-tests ensure that the drawing machine is working well and that balls are drawn in a random way.

The Texas Lottery performs at least four pre-tests before every Pick 3 drawing. The Pick 3 drawing machine uses three separate ball sets – one for each of the three winning numbers. Each of these three ball sets are tested in separate chambers of the Pick 3 drawing machine. The ball sets for Pick 3 pass or fail the pre-tests independently.

If any Pick 3 ball is drawn four times in the same chamber, a fifth pre-test is performed. If any Pick 3 ball that was drawn four times in the same chamber is drawn a fifth time in the same chamber, then the ball set – in that chamber only – will not pass the pre-tests.

When a ball set does not pass the pre-tests, more pre-tests are performed to test the alternate ball set(s). These additional pre-tests are shown in RED.

If the designated Pick 3 drawing machine malfunctions during the pre-tests, the alternate Pick 3 drawing machine is used. A new set of pre-tests are conducted with the alternate Pick 3 drawing machine and the designated Pick 3 ball sets. The new set(s) of pre-tests conducted with the alternate machine are shown below.

Pick 3 Evening with Sum It Up! ®

After each pre-test the sum of the numbers drawn are totaled to determine the Sum It Up! number. If the same sum occurs four times a fifth pre-test for Pick 3 will be conducted. If the sum for the fifth pre-test is the same sum that occurred four times previously, all three Pick 3 ball sets do not pass the pre-tests. The alternate ball sets will be utilized and pre-tests will be conducted on the alternate ball sets.

Asterisks (*) mark the machine and ball set used for the drawing.

In the case of a discrepancy between the pre-test results listed on this website and the official pre-test records, the official records prevail.
