- Straight/Box - Match the numbers either exactly or in any order.

A 3-Way game is used to describe a selection where two of the three numbers are the same, for example 112, as there are only three different ways the numbers can be ordered (112, 121, 211). If a selection has three different numbers, for example 123, it is called 6-Way (123, 132, 213, 231, 312, 321).
Pick 4 is a very similar game to Pick 3, except players must select four numbers and there are even more ways to win. It is possible to win up to $30,000 for matching four main numbers in the order they are drawn.
Iowa Scratch Cards
The Iowa Lottery also sells a wide variety of Scratch and pull-tab games. These instant win games are sold at authorized retailers alongside tickets for draw games, but the difference is that you could win a cash prize straight away if you pick up a Scratch ticket or a pull-tab ticket. Why not pick up one today and see what happens?
Claiming Iowa Lottery Prizes
You'll have 90 days to claim any prizes you won from Pick 3, Pick 4, Scratch and pull-tab games and 365 days to claim prizes from any lottery games.
If you win up to $600 on a lottery or Scratch game, then you can redeem your prize from any authorized retailer. If you win up to $600 on a pull-tab game, then you need to go back to where you purchased the ticket in order to claim your winnings.
Any prize worth between $600 and $250,000 can be redeemed by mail or by visiting one of the Iowa Lottery offices in Cedar Rapids, Des Moines, Mason City, Storm Lake or Council Bluffs. Prizes worth more than this will be need to be claimed at the headquarters located in Des Moines.

History of the Iowa Lottery
The Iowa Lottery was created in April 1985 and the first tickets went on sale on August 22nd, 1985. As a founding member of the Multi-State Lottery Association (MUSL), Iowa began selling Lotto*America tickets in 1988. Powerball tickets went on sale in 1992 and the lottery started participating in Mega Millions in January 2010.
Since it was first established, the Iowa Lottery has generated more than $1.5 billion for state initiatives. Revenue from lottery ticket sales goes towards supporting Iowa's veterans, projects under the supervision of the state General Fund and Vision Iowa, which helps create attractive tourist destinations.
The All or Nothing game stopped on the 30th June 2017.
You must be at least 21 years old if you want to play games offered by the Iowa Lottery.
