Oklahoma Lottery Pick 3 General Information and Links
How to Play Oklahoma Pick 3 Lottery
From a Oklahoma Lottery retailer (a gas station, a convenience store, a food store, etc. which plays OK Lottery) get
a Pick 3 playslip. A playslip contains five different play areas. Each play area represents a different Pick 3 play.
Each Pick 3 play area 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 the type of play - Straight or Box.
If you are playing Front Pair, mark only the first two coluns of the digits and leave the last one blank, then mark "Front Pair".
If you are playing Back Pair, mark only the last two coluns of the digits and leave the first one blank, then mark "Back Pair".
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.

Play Types and How You Win the Oklahoma Pick 3 Lottery
There are four ways you can play and win the Oklahoma Pick 3 game. These types together with how much is paid for a winning
Oklahoma Pick 3 game type are listed below.
The basic Pick 3 play types are:
Straight: You win by matching the winning Pick 3 number in the exact order drawn. For example, if you play the Pick 3
number 409 as Straight, you'll win only if the winning number is exactly 409; you don't win anything if the winning number is 049
The prize of Oklahoma Pick 3 Straight game is $500.
Box: You win by matching the winning Pick 3 number in any order. For example, if you play 409 as Box, you'll
win if the Pick 3 winning number contains the three digits 0, 4, and 9 in any order, such as 049 or 940; but not if any one is
missing like 408.
The prize of Oklahoma Pick 3 Box play depends on whether one of the digits is repeated or not. A number such as 409, where none
of the digits repeats is called a 6-way box and pays $80. If one of the digits is double, like 007, then it is called a
3-way box and pays $160. There is no Box play for numbers with all three identical digits such as 777. These Pick 3 numbers
can only be played straight.
Front Pair: Just select the first two digits to win $50. For example, if you play the front pair 40 (i.e., 40X),
you'll win as long as the first two digits of the winning number are 40 in exact order. So, you'll win with 400, 401, etc., but
not with 940 or 049.
Back Pair: Just select the last two digits to win $50. For example, if you play the back pair 09 (i.e., X09),
you'll win as long as the last two digits of the winning number are 09 in exact order. So, you'll win with 009, 109, etc., but
not with 490 or 094.
