The New Mexico Pick 3 drawings are held every day at 01:00 P.M. and 09:30 P.M. MT offering great odds and increased chances of winning. Pick 3 by the New Mexico Lottery is a daily draw game, which leaves each and every way to win on you. 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 draws on the same playslip by marking the Multi-Draw option on your playslip. Or you also have the option of playing on a future date within seven days of purchase, except the current draw by asking for an Advance Play.
