Loto 3 is one of several popular lottery games played in Chile.
Draws take place three times a day at 14:00, 18:00 and 21:00 local time.
Entry costs as little as CLP 100 for one play, but the structure of Loto 3 could cost players as much as CLP 40,000 per game.
Initially, players choose three numbers between 0 and 9, with it being permitted to choose the same number two or three times if desired.
Players must then choose the mode of play and the type of wager, which can be up to CLP 10,000 per game.
Players can choose from the following bets:
- Exact: Match all three numbers in the order they are drawn.
- Even Trio: Choose two-out-of-three numbers, of which two must be the same, matching all numbers in any order.
- Random Trio: Choose any three numbers and match them in any order.
- Par: Match the first two or the last two numbers drawn.
- Termination: Match the last number drawn.
Depending on the numbers chosen, players can enter up to four different bets using the same numbers, and because it isn’t necessary to play the Exact game to enter any of the others, players have full flexibility over how they play Loto 3, including seven wagering options.
Loto 3 does not have a fixed or guaranteed minimum jackpot; instead, this amount is decided by the way in which players participate and the amount that they stake.
The maximum potential prize is CLP 4 million, although three numbers could be matched in the correct order for CLP 40,000 only!
Payouts for each choice of bet are as follows:
- Exact: 400 times the wager.
- Even Trio: 130 times the wager.
- Random Trio: 65 times the wager.
- Par: 20 times the wager.
- Termination: 4 times the wager.
