Pick 3 characteristics and rules

Pick 3 is one of the most entertaining games to play. In order to play, you only need three numbers from 0 to 9 and to choose one of the five modalities: exact, any, exact/any, front pair or back pair.

Besides, this is one of the few games where you can decide the quantity you want to bet, from $0.50 to $5 per play. According to these choices, your maximum prize can vary.
