Pick 3 – Virginia Lottery
How to Play the Virginia Pick 3 Lottery
Like the Virginia Pick 4, the Pick 3 lottery has draws twice a day (day and evening). The jackpot is set at $500, though how much you win depends on your chosen playstyle and your wager amount.
To play, you must pick a number from 000 to 999. You must then choose a playstyle and bet amount, as well as a draw schedule (day or evening), and how many draws you wish to play. You snag the jackpot when your combination matches the winning draw numbers in exact order.
You can choose from 5 different playstyles:
- Exact Order: You must match the winning numbers in the exact order.
- Any Order: You can match the winning numbers in any order.
- 50/50: You can match the winning numbers in any order or in exact order. Available only at $1 per ticket.
- Combo: You get to play Exact Order bets for all possible combinations of your chosen numbers, boosting your chance of winning.
- Pairs: You select 2 numbers (instead of 3). These must match the first 2, the last 2, or the first and last winning numbers in exact order, depending on the kind of pair you choose to play.
You can win additional prizes by adding the BOOST option to your ticket. This prints 5 extra sets of Easy Pick numbers on your ticket. If one of these BOOST numbers matches the winning draw numbers, you’ll get an extra $100 (for a $1 play) or $50 (for a $0.50 play).
