Pick 3 | Texas Lottery Live (2024)

Pick 3 is a Texas game with four draws a day, six days a week - Monday through Saturday. Choose your favorite numbers and be strategic by picking from one of four play styles, depending on how you want to try to match your numbers to the winning numbers. It costs $0.50, $1, or $5 to play and you could win up to $500 on a $1 play.

To see the latest results for a draw, hit the Pick 3 Morning, Day, Evening, or Night link under Winning Numbers on the top menu.

How to Play

To start playing, simply choose three numbers from 0 to 9, or choose Quick Pick and the lottery terminal will select them at random.

Next, pick a play style - there are four to choose from:

  • Exact Order: Win if your numbers match the numbers drawn in exact order.
  • Any Order: Win if your numbers match the numbers drawn in any order.
  • Exact/Any: For an additional cost, you can play both Exact Order and Any Order on one ticket. Win if your numbers match the numbers drawn in exact order or any order.
  • Combo: Play all the potential exact order combinations on one ticket.

There are four draws every day, six days a week (Monday through Saturday):

  1. Morning: 10:00 AM CT
  2. Day: 12:27 PM CT
  3. Evening: 6:00 PM CT
  4. Night: 10:12 PM CT

To play the next draw, buy your tickets before the draw break, which runs during the following times:

  1. Morning: 9:50 to 10:03 AM CT
  2. Day: 12:17 to 12:30 PM CT
  3. Evening: 5:50 to 6:03 PM CT
  4. Night: 10:02 to 10:15 PM CT

Fireball

Fireball is an optional add-on for your Pick 3 play. Following the Pick 3 draw, the Lottery draws one Fireball number from 0 to 9.

Fireball gives you the chance to replace any of the three Pick 3 numbers drawn with the Fireball number to create a winning set.

You'll take home a payout if your chosen numbers match any of the Fireball winning combinations.

Fireball may only be added to your Pick 3 ticket, not played on its own. To add Fireball, just mark "Yes" in the box on your playslip. Fireball doubles the cost of each Pick 3 play.

Fireball Prizes and Odds of Winning

The table below has all the prizes amounts and chances of winning if you add the Fireball option to your Pick 3 ticket. A separate Fireball number if drawn by the Lottery following each Pick 3 draw. Use the Fireball number instead of one of the Pick 3 numbers drawn for more chances to win. Fireball doubles the cost of your Pick 3 play, as reflected in the prices below - for example, a $0.50 base play becomes a $1 play with Fireball.

The three Fireball Examples columns on the right - Your Numbers, Pick 3 Numbers Drawn, and Fireball Number Drawn - are purely for example, to show how Fireball can help you create a winning sequence.
