play types

One of the things that makes Pick 3 so fun is that there are so many ways to play! Here are the different ways to play and win:

  • Exact order: Play it straight! Match all three digits in the same order as drawn.
  • Any Order: Give yourself options! Match all three of the digits drawn, the order doesn't matter.
  • 50/50: The best of both worlds -split a $1 play in half! $.50 on exact order and $.50 on any order.
  • Combo: Cover all the bases! Play $1 exact order on every possible combination of a 3 digit number.
  • Pairs: Choose only 2 digits! Win with an exact order match regardless of what third digit is drawn.


Check out this table to see exactly what you can win:

Note:  All prizes based on a $1 play. $.50 play win ½ of the prize shown.

  • Add Boost and you will receive 5 extra sets of easy pick numbers.
  • If one of your Boost sets is an exact match to the numbers drawn, you win $100 for a $1 play or $50 for a $.50 play.

play options

  • Want to play the same numbers for more than one drawing on a single ticket? Well, you can! A MULTI-DRAW ticket lets you play up to 91 consecutive draws on one ticket. Please keep in mind that the ticket price increases for each drawing you add.
  • Thinking ahead to a special date? You can buy a ticket for one future draw date. It's called a FUTURE draw. Simply mark the OPTIONAL PLAYS box on your playslip and let the store clerk know which future draw date you have in mind.
  • Love those numbers so much you want them on more than one ticket? You can REPEAT your play and have the same numbers printed on more than one ticket up to 20 times.
  • Simply tell your store clerk which option you want when you present your playslip. Keep in mind that playing in more than one draw increases the ticket price by the number of draws you choose.

fourteen chances to win every week

  • Pick 3 numbers are drawn twice a day, seven days a week.
  • We have a little break between selling and drawing the numbers, so you can't buy tickets starting at 1:53 PM for that day's draw and again starting at 10:45 PM for that night's draw - just something to keep in mind if you're playing close to draw time.

watch the draws!

You can watch the draws live twice a day at 1:59 PM and 11:00 PM by clicking the View Winning Numbers tab at the top of the page or by visiting us on Facebook.com/valottery. You can even watch them later…draws stay on our site!
