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 is 50 cents, $1, $2 or $5. Or you could opt to use the Quick Pick system to automatically choose your numbers.
You also need to choose a bet type: exact order (Straight), any order (Box), Front or Back Pair, or First, Second or Third Digit only.
Straight: All three digits must match the winning digits in the order they're drawn (e.g. 123)
3-Way Box: Your winning 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 Straight/Box: Match 3 numbers, of which 2 are the same, in exact order or any order (e.g. 122).
6-Way Straight/Box: Match 3 numbers, with all different digits in exact order or any order (e.g. 123).
Front Pair - Match the first two numbers in exact order
Back Pair - Match the last two numbers in exact order
Pick First Digit only
Pick Second Digit only
Pick Third Digit only
Finally, you need to mark that you're playing the Tri-State Pick 3 Midday or Evening draw, or Both.
Up to one week's consecutive game draws can be played in advance on the one ticket.
