The Lottery of Arizona’s version of Pick 3, lets you split a single ticket into 2 separate plays. This action effectively doubles your chances to win, at the cost of slicing the prize payouts by half. You need to select your play type from the Straight, Box 3-way, box 6-way, Front pair, or a Back pair. These different types of plays offer varying odds of winning and prize structures.
