How to Play Pick3

Missouri Pick 3 Playing Options

You have two options to play pick3-

  • Quick Pick Method: Ask the clerk at lottery retailer for “QP” to let the computer pick randomly three numbers for you to play.
  • Marking numbers on Playslip: Ask the clerk at lottery retailer for the Playslip and mark three desired numbers over it.

EZ Match

Pay an additional $1 to play EZ Match per Pick 3 play. Fill out a Pick 3 EZ Match Playslip printed on the Pick 3 ticket just below the Pick 3 numbers to play EZ Match. They print separate EZ Match ticket for each play. You will have to choose three EZ Match numbers to play EZ Match numbers which will be printed on the back of your ticket. In any of the drawn number matches the number picked by the players (regardless of the order), the player is an instant winner of the amount printed next to the matched EZ Match play number.

1-Off (one up or one down, you win!)

If you play 1-Off, you have 27 chances to win on a single ticket. It is basically a play type which you need to mention during the time of purchase of the ticket. 1-Off ticket costs you an additional $1 per pick 3 play.

After picking your desired numbers, give the Playslip to the retailer. Double-check your ticket to confirm the right numbers and date are correct. Don’t forget to sign the back of your ticket and keep it in a safe place. Check the results to see if you’re a winner!
