Pick 3 – Pennsylvania Lottery
How to Play the Pennsylvania Pick 3 Lottery
Pick 3 draws are held twice a day, and you can win up to $500 per draw. You just need to pick 3 numbers from 0-9 then select your playstyle, wager amount, and draw schedule.
You can choose from 6 different playstyles:
- Straight: You must match the winning numbers in the exact order. Available for $0.50 or $1 per ticket
- Box: You can match the winning numbers in any order. Available for $0.50 or $1 per ticket.
- Straight/Box: You can match the winning numbers in any order or in exact order. Available only at $1 per ticket.
- Super Straight: If you select 3 distinct numbers or a pair and 1 distinct number, your wager is entered as 6 or 3 Straight plays, respectively. This covers all possible combinations of your given numbers, boosting your chance of winning.
- Front Pair: You select 2 numbers (instead of 3), which must match the first 2 winning numbers in exact order.
- Back Pair: You select 2 numbers (instead of 3), which must match the last 2 winning numbers in exact order.
You can also play with the Wild Ball, which gives you a chance to exchange the Wild Ball number with one of the winning numbers so you can get a match.
