How to play Pick 3 Lotto: Pick 3 gives the player more options than any other lottery game in Arizona. First the player must decide to play one game for one dollar ($1) and potentially win up to five hundred dollars ($500) or play two games for the same price ($1) and potentially win up to two hundred and fifty dollars ($250) on each game.
Either the player may choose the numbers or have the computer choose them with a quick pick. The numbers consist of any three-digit number between 000 and 999 and the player chooses either one set of numbers or two. As many as twelve (12) future drawings may be played.
Then the player must decide how to play the numbers that have now been chosen. The options consist of Straight, Box 3-way, Box 6-way, Straight/Box 3-way, Straight/Box 6-way, Front Pair or Back Pair. Depending upon the odds and single or double play, each different way to play has a different potential cash prize.
Choosing Straight requires the three numbers drawn to match the three numbers chosen in the exact same order. The cash prize for matching the numbers Straight on a single play is five hundred dollars ($500). If a player matches all three exactly after choosing Straight on a double play, the cash prize is two hundred and fifty dollars ($250). The odds of winning this way are one in one thousand (1:1,000).
If a player chooses the Box option, the three numbers must match, but the numbers can be in any order. When the Box option is chosen in Pick 3, the player has two further options. Either the player can choose Box option 3-way or 6-way. 3-way means that two of the numbers selected must be the same. 6-way means that all of the numbers the player or computer chooses are different. If a player purchases a pick 3 lottery ticket and plays a single play Box 3-way and wins, the cash prize is one hundred and sixty dollars ($160). If the same Pick 3 lottery ticket is a double play, the cash prize is eighty dollars ($80). The odds of winning when playing Pick 3 Box 3-way are one in three hundred and thirty-three (1:333).
If the Pick 3 lottery player chooses the Box option 6-way and wins on a single play, the winning amount is eighty dollars ($80). The same 6-way win on a double play ticket is worth forty dollars ($40). The odds of a Pick 3 Box 6-way are one in one hundred and sixty-seven (1:167).
Another option Arizona Pick 3 lottery players can choose is Straight/Box 3-way. This option allows the player to win both straight and in any order. Two of the numbers chosen must be the same. Winners of this game on a single play ticket will win three hundred thirty dollars ($330) if it is a straight (exact match) and eighty dollars ($80) if it is not in order (Box). A double play ticket of this nature will win one hundred and sixty-five dollars ($165) if the numbers are exact (straight) and forty dollars ($40) if it is a Box win (the numbers can be in any order). The odds of winning with a Straight 3-way are still one in one thousand (1:1,000).
In Pick 3, lottery players can also combine Straight/Box 6-way. This option requires all the numbers chosen be different, but allows both Box and Straight wins. A winning single play Straight/Box 6-way Pick 3 lottery ticket is worth two hundred and ninety dollars ($290) if the numbers are exact (Straight) and forty dollars ($40) in the event of a Box (numbers in any order). A double play lottery ticket is worth one hundred and forty dollars ($140) Straight and twenty dollars ($20) as a Box.
The final two options afforded to Arizona Lottery Pick 3 players are the Front Pair option and the Back Pair option. If a player chooses the Front Pair option, the first two numbers must be in the exact order they were drawn. A single play winning ticket is worth fifty dollars ($50) and a double play ticket is worth twenty-five dollars ($25). If the Back Pair option is chosen and wins, a single play ticket prize is fifty dollars ($50) and a double play ticket wins twenty-five dollars ($25). The odds of matching either the front pair or the back pair are one in one hundred (1:100).
All cash prizes must be claimed within one hundred and eighty (180) days of the lottery drawing.
