About PICK 3

PICK 3 is a fun and popular game offered by the Pennsylvania Lottery, with multiple ways to win and exciting prizes. The PICK 3 game has Day and Evening draws, 7 days per week. The maximum prize amount for the PICK 3 game is $500 for the base game or $250 if the Wild Ball is used. Drawings for the "Day" game are held every day at 1:35 PM, while the "Evening" numbers are drawn at 6:59 PM respectively. Both the Day and Evening game draws can be watched on television or streamed online.

The PICK 3 Day and the PICK 3 Evening games share the same rules, odds, parameters and prize amounts. The only difference is the time of day in which they are drawn.

How to Play PICK 3

To play PICK 3, a player chooses between 1 and 5 "panels" on their payslip. Each panel can be considered as a "play" or "game". On each panel selected, a player can choose any 3 digit number between 000 and 999, or they can use the "Quick Pick" option to have the computer randomly select numbers for them.

Play Type

Next, a player needs to select their play type. There are six play types as listed below.

Straight Play

To win a "Straight" play, players need to match all 3 digits in exact order. This is one way to win the top prize of $500.

Box Play

There are 2 ways to win on a "Box" play as explained below. The win amounts shown here are based on a $1 play. For win amounts based on a 50¢ play, subtract 50% from these figures.

  1. 3 way box - Player matches 1 pair of digits plus 1 distinct digit in any order. This wins $160.
  2. 6 way box - Player matches any 3 distinct digits in any order. This wins $80.
Front Pair

To win a "Front Pair" play, players need to match the first 2 digits exactly. This wins $50.

Back Pair

To win a "Back Pair" play, players need to match the last 2 digits exactly. This wins $50.

Super Straight

There are two ways to win a "Super Straight" play.

  1. The player can match 1 pair of digits plus 1 distinct digit.
  2. The player can match any 3 distinct digits.

Either "Super Straight" win pays the top prize of $500.


Only on 50¢ plays, a player can win on both a "Straight" and a "Box" play at the same time.

  1. A player matches any 3 distinct digits. This wins $250 from the "Straight" and $40 from the "Box".
  2. A player matches 1 pair of digits and 1 distinct digit. This wins $250 from the "Straight" and $80 from the "Box".

Wild Ball

The "Wild Ball" is an addon for PICK 3. While the game rules and logic remains the same, the prize amounts for Wild Ball wins are lower, since it greatly increases a players odds of winning by allowing the player to replace any number from their base play with the Wild Ball.

The prize amounts for Wild Ball wins are shown below.

  1. Straight - $200.
  2. 3 way box - $72.
  3. 6 way box - $36.
  4. Front Pair - $30.
  5. Back Pair - $30.
  6. Super Straight - $200.
