Kansas Lottery Pick 3 General Information and Links
How to Play Kansas Pick 3 Lottery
From an Kansas Lottery retailer (a gas station, a convenience store, a food store, etc. which plays KS Lottery) get
a Pick 3 playslip. A playslip contains five different play areas, marked Play A through Play E. Each play area
represents a different Pick 3 play. If you want to play only one number, fill out only Play A; if you want to play
15 numbers, then get three playslips and fill all the play areas, A to E of all of them.
Each Pick 3 play panel contains three colums of the digits 0 to 9. Mark the first digit of your number on the first column,
the second digit on the second column, and the third digit on the third column. So, if you want to play the number 409, then
4 will be marked in the first column, 0 in the second column, and 9 in the third column. Next select and mark the amount (50 cents
or $1), then select the type of play - Exact Order(Straight) or Any Order(Box).
Next, present the completed playslip to the lottery retailer to receive your printed ticket. Check your ticket immediately to
ensure that the numbers, dates, and play type match your request. The retailer cannot cancel the ticket.

Exact Order(Straight): You win by matching the winning Pick 3 number in the exact order drawn. For example,
