Ticket sales end shortly before the draw and resume immediately afterward.
Players may wager CAD 1.00, CAD 2.00, or CAD 5.00 or CAD 10.00, with the amount wagered acting as a prize multiplier.
Each day, three Pick 3 winning numbers are drawn at random from 0 to 9. Because each number is chosen individually, the same number can be picked two or three times.
Extra, which offers an opportunity to win CAD 250,000 jackpot or CAD 100,000 second prize, can be added to the main Pick 3 draw and costs CAD 1 per play. The jackpot can be won if you match all seven digits in the right order, while the second prize goes to those who correctly match the last six digits drawn. In fact, 7 prizes are available, from CAD 2 to match the last digit only right up to the jackpot for matching all 7.
The maximum allowable Pick 3 jackpot is $5,000, which may be won by wagering $10 and matching three numbers in the exact sequence drawn.
To play Pick 3, select three numbers from 0 to 9 or opt for a Quick Pick, in which case, numbers will be generated automatically for you. Then choose between Straight Play, Box Play, or Straight/Box Play and when winning, receive varying prizes depending on the choice.
Straight play means that you should match numbers in exact order.
In Box play, numbers can be matched in any order.
Straight/Box Play - combines both options.
Please note that if you decide to select three same numbers, you won’t be able to choose Box, or Straight/Box play methods.
When playing Pick 3, up to 25 draws can be purchased at once using the Advance Play option.
