Pick 3

Pick-3 makes every day more exciting. With drawings twice a day, everyday, you've got plenty of chances to win.

Plus, for just $1 extra, you can add Instant Match to your Pick-3 ticket for a chance to win up to $500 instantly!

Here's how to play:

  • Purchase a Pick-3 ticket at any New Jersey Lottery Retailer.
  • Pick any 3 numbers between 000 and 999.
  • You can play Pick-3 straight, boxed, or in a wide range of other bets. To learn more, check out the Pick-3 Odds & Prizes.
  • You can play STRAIGHT and BOX on the same ticket.
  • You cannot place a BOX bet where all 3 digits are the same. For example, 000 cannot be boxed.
  • If you'd rather have the Lottery computer randomly select your numbers for you, ask for a "Quick 3."
  • Select MIDDAY or EVENING draw. If no box is selected, the wager will be for the EVENING draw.
  • For $1 extra, you can add Instant Match.
  • You can play the same numbers for up to 7 consecutive drawings. Just mark the number of draws on your bet slip corresponding to the number of drawings you wish to play.
  • Give your bet slip to your retailer.
