The Pennsylvania Pick 3 drawings are held twice a day, seven days a week, offering great odds and increased chances of winning. Pick 3 by the Pennsylvania 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 provides you with the chance to play any draw in the future, within seven days of purchase except the current draw. You just need to ask for Advance Play and you can play for any future draw.

Not stagnating your chances to win, Pennsylvania Lottery also provides you with the option of Wild Ball, which lets you have a chance to exchange the Wild Ball number with one of the winning numbers so you can get a winning combination.
