Pick 3

Colorado Pick 3 is a three-digit game with two draws every day, a variety of wagers and bet types to choose from, and a top prize of $500 on a $1 bet.

The Midday draw takes place at 1:36 PM MT and the Evening draw is held at 7:36 PM seven days a week. Ticket sales close at 1:30 PM and 7:30 PM respectively. Tickets are also unavailable from 12:00 AM to 4:30 AM Monday through Saturday and from 12:00 AM to 8:00 AM on Sunday.


How to Play

Choose 3 numbers from 0 through 9; they can be the same or different. To play even faster, ask the retailer for a Quick Pick or mark the Quick Pick box on your playslip and the lottery computer will randomly select your numbers.

Pick 3 is Colorado's only jackpot game where players have a choice of bet wagers, and the more you bet, the bigger the prizes you can win. Select from $0.50, $1, $2 or $5 (minimum $1 wager on the Exact Order + Any Order bet type).

Players can enter multiple drawings for the Midday or Evening time, or both. You can play up to 28 draws for Midday or Evening, or up to 56 draws for both draw times.

Select one of five bet types - here's a description of how each one can win:

  • Exact Order: Choose three numbers and match them all to the winning numbers in the exact order drawn.
  • Any Order: Choose three unique numbers (for example, 1-2-3) OR with two the same (for example, 1-2-2), and match them all to the winning numbers in any order.
  • Exact + Any Order: Match in Exact or Any Order (Exact also wins the Any Order prize). Choose three unique numbers (for example, 1-2-3) OR with two the same (for example, 1-2-2). Minimum wager: $1.
  • Front Pair: Choose two numbers in positions one and two on your playslip. Numbers can be the same or different. Win if your numbers match the numbers drawn in the exact order and position.
  • Back Pair: Choose two numbers in positions two and three on your playslip. Numbers can be the same or different. Win if your numbers match the numbers drawn in the exact order and position.
