Pick 3

Pick 3 is an exciting Texas lottery game where you can play your lucky numbers, and also be strategic by choosing a play style. Players have the chance to win four times daily, six days a week (Monday-Saturday). Tickets cost $0.50, $1, or $5 per play with a top prize of $500 (for a $1 play).

To play, choose three one-digit numbers from 0-9, or select Quick Pick to have them chosen for you at random.

Next, choose one of the four play styles:

  • Exact Order: If your chosen numbers match the winning numbers in the exact order they are drawn, you win!
  • Any Order: If your chosen numbers match the winning numbers in any order, you win!
  • Exact/Any: For a small extra cost you can play both Exact Order and Any Order. If your chosen numbers match the winning numbers in Exact Order or in Any Order, you win!
  • Combo: An easy way to play all possible Exact Order combinations on one ticket.
