What is Pick 3

Pick 3 is a three-digit number game from the South Carolina Education Lottery. Pick 3 drawings are held every evening at 6:59 and aired live on local television stations. Midday drawings are not televised and are held Monday through Saturday afternoons at 12:59. No midday drawings are held on Sundays or on Christmas Day. Players have the option of choosing to play a straight ticket to match numbers in the exact order drawn or to play a box ticket to match numbers drawn in any order. There is a straight/box choice to cover both possibilities. Players have the option of purchasing a combo ticket equal to 3 or 6 straight plays. Front Pair and Back Pair play types are also available. Each play costs 50¢ or $1.

NEW! Add Fireball Logo Image to your Pick 3 ticket for more ways to win! When you play Pick 3 Plus FIREBALL, you replace any one of the Pick 3 winning numbers drawn with the FIREBALL number to create FIREBALL prizewinning combinations. You win a prize if your selected numbers match any of the FIREBALL prizewinning combinations! All FIREBALL prizes are in addition to any base game wins. Adding FIREBALL doubles the cost of each play.

1 Pick your numbers

Select a two-digit number (*00 to 99*) or a three-digit number (000-999) on the play slip. Use one panel (PLAY A - PLAY E) for each desired play.

2 Quick Pick

If you prefer having any or all of your numbers selected at random by the terminal, mark the “QUICK PICK” box for each play. All plays and play options selected on the play slip will be valid for the specified draw only.

3 Play Amount

Select the play amount of either 50¢ or $1. Combo tickets range in price: a 3-way combo is $1.50 or $3 and a 6-way combo is $3 or $6.

4 Play Type

Choose a "TYPE" from the list of Play Types.
STR = Straight Play: Match winning numbers in exact order drawn.
STRAIGHT PLAY: To win, the number you pick has to match the number we draw in exactly the same order.
BOX = Box Play: Match winning numbers drawn in any order.
BOXED PLAY: To win, your number has to match the number we draw, but the three digits can be in any order. There are two kinds of box plays:
3-WAY BOX: Pick a number with two digits that are the same and one that's different. It's called a 3-way box because there are three possible winning combinations.
6-WAY BOX: Pick a number with three different digits and you'll have six possible winning combinations.
STR/BX = Straight/Box: Combines a 50¢ Straight AND a 50¢ Box for a 3-digit number on a single play. The Straight/Box play may only be played for $1 per play.
COMBO = Combination: Equal to 3 or 6 Straight plays for 50¢ or $1. Win $250 or $500 if you match winning numbers drawn in any order in a single play.
PAIRS: Pick two numbers and specify their location, either the front two numbers or the back two numbers. A player with a pair selection ticket cannot use the pair ticket to collect on any other type.
FRONT PAIR: Player wins when the front two numbers on the ticket match in exact order the first two numbers drawn.
BACK PAIR: Player wins when the back two numbers on the ticket match in exact order the last two numbers drawn.

5 FIREBALL

To add FIREBALL, mark the “ADD FIREBALL” circle for each play. Adding FIREBALL doubles the cost of each Pick 3 play. Play FIREBALL with any Pick 3 play type. After every Pick 3 drawing, one FIREBALL number from 0 to 9 will be drawn. The FIREBALL number replaces any one of the drawn Pick 3 numbers to create winning combinations. Win a prize by matching any of the FIREBALL prizewinning combinations. To view the many ways to win, click here.

6 Draw Times

Mark the "DAY" (12:59 p.m.), "EVE" (6:59 p.m.), or "BOTH" box to select the drawing(s) you want to play. If no box is selected, then the ticket will be valid for the NEXT drawing that occurs.

7 Multi-draws

Play up to 14 draws for "DAY" or "EVE" or 28 draws for "BOTH" by marking the appropriate box under “Number of Multi-Draws.” NOTE: Multi draw selections will be consecutive from the draw date selected. There are NO midday drawings on Sundays or on Christmas Day.

8 Advanced Play(s)

Indicates a draw day other than the present day (not today).

9 Sign the Back of the Ticket

Upon purchase, SIGN the ticket back and SECURE your ticket. Check your selections to make sure they are correct. Player is solely responsible for verifying all selections on the ticket. If there is an error, have the retailer CANCEL the ticket and print another. REFUSE to pay for a ticket that is not printed clearly or is not exactly as you want. There are rules as to how long a player has to cancel a ticket. In some cases the player may not be able to have a ticket canceled.

Caution Icon DO NOT ERASE. If you make an error, mark the "VOID" box beside the selected play. You must be 18 years of age to play.

Pick 3 Play Slip

Prior to each drawing, Pick 3 sales will be temporarily suspended to allow for the drawing. Pick 3 sales are suspended at 12:45 p.m., Monday through Saturday, and at 6:45 p.m. every night. After making a Pick 3 purchase, a player has up to 20 minutes to cancel the sale; however, a retailer may NOT cancel a ticket sold for a given draw after sales have been suspended for that drawing.

A player MUST be at least 18 years of age to purchase a ticket.
