HOW TO PLAY
To play Pick-3, you will choose a play type, three (3) numbers from 0-9 and a wager. For a little more fun, you can include the FIREBALL add-on for more chances to win. Lotto.com also offers the option to enroll your ticket as a subscription so you never miss a game!
Pick-3 offers you a variety of play types that determine how your chosen numbers are matched against the winning numbers. Each play type has different combinations to win and different prizes based on which combination you match. The following play types are available:
For more information on the rules of each play type, please see our article on Pick-3 Play Types
In Pick-3, you choose three (3) numbers from 0-9 and are allowed to select the same number multiple times. These numbers are then scored against the winning numbers to see if they match. In some play types, the numbers can be rearranged, giving you more chances to win.
On Lotto.com, Pick-3 can be enjoyed with wagers of $1, $2, $3, $4, or $5. A new wager selection is made for each additional play on the ticket and the amounts wagered for each line can be different. Some play types, including ‘Wheel’ and ‘Straight/Box,’ have multiple wagers placed on a single line.
Each play (line) on a ticket is a separate entry into the next draw. Pick-3 is available with up to three (3) plays on each ticket, making it easy to maximize your chances of success.
Adding the FIREBALL option to your ticket gives you more opportunities to win. The FIREBALL number can be swapped in place of one of the winning numbers, allowing for new combinations to match your chosen numbers. FIREBALL is available for all play types and will double the cost of your ticket when added. Once included, FIREBALL will apply to all lines on the ticket.
Please Note: the prizes awarded for matches using the FIREBALL number are different from the prizes awarded for not using it.
