How to Play Tri-State Pick 3


Picking Numbers

On a Pick 3 play slip mark the play type (straight, box, front pair, back pair or single digit), time of day desired, (DAY, EVE, or BOTH) amount of bet ($.50 to $5.00 per bet), and select three (3) numbers (2 numbers if only playing Front Pair or Back Pair or 1 number on a single digit play) and number of draws for each panel.

On a Pick 3 playslip, mark the EASY PICK (EP) box at the bottom of the panel on each play to let the computer terminal randomly pick the numbers for you. You must still determine the play type, time of day desired, amount of bet and number of draws for each panel. You cannot select 6-way or 3-way box bets (see below) on an Easy Pick bet. Each Easy Pick will be a $.50 play for the next available draw unless another draw time, draw day or dollar amount is selected.

You may purchase a ticket for any of the next 42 draws by filling in the number of draws from the Multi Draws column and the appropriate DAY, EVE, or BOTH box on the play slip.

Pick 3 Ticket

Draws are held Daily at 1:10 PM and 6:59 PM with a cutoff of 1:00 PM and 6:45 PM to purchase tickets for the draw. All draw times are based on Eastern Time.
