How to Play
Grab a bet slip and choose your favorite three numbers between 0 and 9. Mark one digit per column. Short on inspiration? Quick Pick will do the work of selecting the numbers for you.
Determine your wager - you can bet $0.50 or $1. How much you wager affects the prizes you can win. You can make up to five wagers on a bet slip.
The game keeps things interesting with six bet types to try: Straight, Box, Straight/Box, Combo, Front Pair, or Back Pair.
Which draw(s) do you want to enter? Select Day, Night, or Both.
Use Multi-Draw if you'd like to play the same numbers for up to seven draws in a row. Advance Play is another convenient option to play a future draw up to seven days in the future - just choose the day and draw time. You can also play more than one game; just let the retailer know the start and end dates.
Your ticket cost is determined by the number of plays, draws, and bet amount you've selected.
Players must be at least 18 years old to buy a DC-3 ticket or redeem a prize.
