The Kentucky Pick 3 drawings are held every day at 01:20 p.m. and 11:00 p.m. offering great odds and increased chances of winning. Pick 3 by the Kentucky Lottery is a daily draw game, which offers multiple ways for you to win. You just need to pick 3 numbers from 0 to 9, along with the play type which determines your lottery winnings. If your selected numbers match the winning numbers of the draw according to your wager, you bag the jackpot. The game also lets you play up to 14 consecutive future draws in advance by marking the Advance Play option on your playslip. You also have the option of playing your same lucky numbers by asking the “Play It Again” feature.
