How to Play

To get started playing DC-3, you'll need to choose three lucky numbers from 0 to 9. Mark one digit in each column of your bet slip. Each board is one play, so you can wager up to five times on a bet slip. Want to get in the game even faster? Choose Quick Pick to have the lottery's computer randomly choose your numbers.

You have a choice of a $0.50 or $1 wager. The more you wager, the higher the prizes you can win.

DC-3 has a variety of exciting bet types to choose from, which determine how your numbers can make a winning match with the numbers the lottery draws. Here's how you could win on each of the six bet types:

  • Straight: Match all the lottery's numbers in the exact order they are drawn
  • Box: Match all the lottery's numbers in any order
  • Straight/Box: Match all the numbers drawn in exact or any order
  • Combo (minimum bet $1.50-$3): Match all the winning numbers in exact or any order
  • Front Pair: Match the first two numbers drawn in exact order
  • Back Pair: Match the last two numbers drawn in exact order

Box and Combo bet types can be 3-way or 6-way depending on the numbers you choose and the ways they can match the numbers drawn. 3-way: Select two identical digits and one unique digit, for example 112. 6-way: Select three unique digits, for example 123.

Choose your draw(s) - check Day for 1:50 pm, Evening for 7:50 pm, Night for 11:30 pm or All.

Love your numbers? Multi-Draw is the easiest way to play your lucky digits for up to seven consecutive draws. Advance Play is the way to go if you want to play a future draw without making an extra trip - choose the day and draw time to play up to seven days ahead. To play more than one draw, ask the clerk for your chosen start and end dates.

The total price of your ticket depends on the number of plays, draws, and wager you've chosen.

You must be age 18 or above to play DC-3.
