The Pick 3 of Missouri Lottery features 6 play types - Straight, Box, Straight/Box, Combo, 1-off, and Pairs. You must choose your play type first and then set the wager amount between $0.50 and $5. After this, you can choose your numbers, which draw you would like to join and how many draws you would like to enter.
For an extra $1 cost to your ticket, you can opt for EZ Match for a chance to win instant cash prizes. If your numbers on the ticket match the EZ Match numbers, you win the indicated prize amount.
A wager over $1 will multiply your prize by the same dollar amount.
