    Play Pick 3 four times a day! Pick 3 is a daily game offering a 50-cent play, six days a week (four times a day) and a top prize of $500 (on a $1 play).

    It’s easy to play. Just pick three single-digit numbers from “0” to “9”, choose how you want to play them, the number of drawings you want to play and the time of day you want to play.

    Get more chances to win with FIREBALL! When you play FIREBALL, you can replace any one of the three drawn Pick 3 winning numbers with the Pick 3 FIREBALL number to create FIREBALL prize winning combinations. If your selected numbers match any of the FIREBALL prize winning combinations, win a prize!

    How to Play

    First, pick three single-digit numbers from “0” to “9” or mark the QP (Quick Pick) box and your numbers will be selected for you.

    Second, select how you want to play your three single-digit numbers (Exact Order, Any Order, Exact/Any Order, Combo).

    • 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, FIREBALL! The Texas Lottery will draw one Pick 3 FIREBALL number from 0 to 9 after every Pick 3 drawing. When you play FIREBALL, you can replace any one of the three drawn Pick 3 winning numbers with the Pick 3 FIREBALL number to create FIREBALL prize winning combinations. If your selected numbers match any of the FIREBALL prize winning combinations, win a prize! To add the FIREBALL feature to your play, mark the “YES” box. Adding FIREBALL doubles the cost of each Pick 3 board played.

    How to Play Pick 3

    It’s Easy to Play

    Pick Your Numbers

    Select three numbers from 0 through 9. The numbers selected can be three separate numbers or may be duplicated in a single play. For example: ‘537’ or ‘009’ or ‘339’. You can win more when you play two duplicate numbers rather than unique numbers on an Any Order bet type!

    You can also simply ask for a QP (Quick Pick) and the terminal will generate your numbers for you.

    Select Your Bet Type

    Buy Your Ticket

    Ticket buyers must be at least 18. Tickets are available at most Colorado retailers.

    You can place a $.50 wager for the following bet types:

    • Exact Order
    • Any Order
    • Front Pair
    • Back Pair

    You can place a $1.00, $2.00, $5.00 wager for the following bet types:

    • Exact Order
    • Any Order
    • Exact Order + Any Order
    • Front Pair
    • Back Pair

    Lottery games may be purchased using a debit card where accepted by retailers (not all retailers accept debit cards). Lottery tickets can never be purchased with a credit card.

    Play Multiple Drawings

    Pick either Midday, Evening or both. You can play up to 28 drawings for just Midday or just Evening drawings. If you play both, you can play up to 56 drawings.
