The South Carolina Pick 3 drawings are held twice a day, seven days a week, offering great odds and increased chances of winning. Pick 3 by the South Carolina Education 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, except for the current draw. You just need to ask for Advance Play and you can play for any future draw.
Not stagnating your winning options, the lottery also provides you with the chance of playing your numbers for up to 28 consecutive draws, by just marking the appropriate box under “Number of Multi-Draws”.
