The Maryland Pick 3 drawings are held twice a day, seven days a week, offering great odds and increased chances of winning. Pick 3 by the Maryland Lottery is a daily draw game, which provides you with multiple chances to win every day. 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 the same numbers for up to 7 consecutive draws on the same playslip or for a future date or draw by marking the “NUMBER OF DRAWS” or Advance Play on your playslip or you can also inform your lottery retailers prior to the draw.
