In each of 3 columns numbered 0 to 9, mark 1 number for each game you choose to play (you can play up to 4 on the one ticket), along with your wager for each game, which can range from 50 cents to $6 per standard game. Or you could opt to use the Auto Pick system to automatically choose your numbers.
You also need to choose a bet type: exact order (Straight), any order (Box), exact or any order (Backup), all combinations of exact order (Wheel), or Front, Back or Split Pair.
Finally, you need to mark that you're playing the Pick 3 Midday or Evening draw, or Both.
Straight: All three digits must match the winning digits in the order they're drawn (e.g. 123)
3-Way Box: Your numbers have two digits the same with three different combinations to match (e.g. 122)
6-Way Box: Match the three winning numbers in any order
3-Way Back-Up: Match 3 numbers, of which 2 are the same, in exact order or any order (e.g. 122).
6-Way Back-Up: Match 3 numbers, with all different digits in exact order or any order (e.g. 123).
3-Way Wheel: Gives you all the possible combinations of your three chosen numbers for a Straight (Exact Order) win on one ticket. This play costs $3 or $6 per game.
6-Way Wheel: Gives you all the possible combinations of your three chosen numbers for a Straight (Exact Order) win on one ticket. This play costs $3 or $6 per game.
Front Pair - Match the first two numbers in exact order

Up to 6 consecutive game draws can be played in advance on the one ticket. The prize for a Straight win is $500, though as much as $3,498 can be won on a $6 game wager.
