    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

    How to Play

    It’s as easy as 1-2-3!

    Playing PICK 3™ is easy. It’s the game where you can play today and get paid today. You can win a top prize of $500 with a $1 Straight play, or increase your chances of winning with a Box, Straight/Box, Combo, Pairs or 1-OFF ® play. So many options to try! Simply select your lucky numbers and play it your way any day – twice a day. Midday and evening drawings offer two chances to play – and win!

    To play, pick up a PICK 3 playslip at an authorized Florida Lottery retailer. Each playslip contains five panels (A-E). In each panel played:

    1. Select one number (from 0 through 9) from each column for a total of three digits, or mark the QP (Quick Pick) box and let the terminal randomly pick some or all of your numbers. For a Front Pair play, select numbers from the first two columns only; and, for a Back Pair play, select numbers from the last two columns only.

    2. Select the play type: Straight, Box, Straight/Box, 1-OFF, Combo, Front Pair, or Back Pair.

    3. Select the amount you want to play: 50 cents or $1 (all Straight/Box and 1-OFF plays cost $1; Combo plays cost $1.50 to $6.00).

    4. Select the draw time. Select MID for the midday drawing (1:30 p.m. ET), EVE for the evening drawing (9:45 p.m. ET) draw, or BOTH for both the midday and evening drawings. If no draw time is marked, the terminal will automatically print a ticket for the next available draw. If BOTH is selected, two separate tickets will print – one for the midday drawing and one for the evening drawing.

    5. To Advance Play the same numbers and play types up to 14 consecutive days for the selected draw time(s), simply mark the number in the “Days” section on your playslip.

    6. Give your completed playslip and payment to the retailer. You will receive a ticket for each set of selected numbers and draw date(s). Please check your ticket(s) before you leave the store. You are responsible for the accuracy of your ticket(s).

    7. Check the official drawing results to see if you’re a winner! Draw results are available on this website, at authorized Florida Lottery retailers and by calling (850) 921-PLAY (7529). You may also watch the drawings online.

    PICK 3 drawings are held twice daily, seven days per week, at 1:30 p.m. and 9:45 p.m. ET. Tickets for each drawing may be purchased up to 11 minutes prior to the applicable drawing – 1:19 p.m. ET for the midday drawings and 9:34 p.m. ET for the evening drawings.

    Please remember: All prizes must be claimed within 180 days of the applicable draw date.
    Prizes of less than $600 may be claimed at any authorized Florida Lottery retailer.

    If you claim a prize on a winning Advance Play ticket before all of the drawings on the ticket have occurred, you will be issued a continuation ticket for the remaining draws with the same play numbers and play types as the original ticket.

    How to Play 1-Off ®

    Ever feel like you’re close, but you’ve somehow missed the mark? With 1-OFF ® you can miss by one and still win a cash prize. That’s 26 more chances to win!

    To play, simply pick up a PICK 3 playslip at an authorized Florida Lottery retailer.

    Select your three numbers, or QP to let the terminal randomly pick some or all of your numbers.

    Mark the 1-OFF ® box on the PICK 3 playslip.

    Select the draw time: MID, EVE, or BOTH.

    Once you give your completed playslip and payment to the retailer, you will receive a ticket printed with your 3-digit number and the 1-OFF numbers higher or lower than your 3-digit number.

    During the PICK 3 drawing, 3 numbers will be drawn at random. If your 3-digit number is a Straight match to the numbers, you win $250. Or, if any of your 1-OFF numbers match the PICK 3 numbers drawn, you can win up to $10.

    1-OFF: All possible combinations in which each of the three (3) digits either matches or is one (1) number higher or lower than each of the player’s three (3) digits in exact order. 26 ways to win. 123 012, 013, 014, 022, 023, 024, 032, 033, 034, 112, 113, 114, 122, 124, 132, 133, 134, 212, 213, 214, 222, 223, 224, 232, 233, 234

    Unlike the Lottery’s other Draw games, which are pari-mutuel in design (that is, players are vying for a portion of what is in the prize pool), PICK 2, PICK 3, PICK 4, and PICK 5 offer set prize payouts. Therefore, the Lottery has established a $8 million liability limit for PICK 3 for any particular three-digit number for each drawing. Should any three digit combination (for example 777) be purchased often enough in a single drawing that would result in the liability limit being exceeded, the Lottery will “cut off” further sales of that specific number combination. In addition, no Front Pair or Back Pair that involves the first two or last two digits, respectively, of the three-digit number will be allowed for that drawing. Players that have already played those numbers will still win the full amount of the set prize even if the liability limit has been met. For more details on this issue, please refer to the Pick 3 game rule, section (1)(i).
