Pick 3 is a popular lottery game played in Grenada.
Draws are held twice daily from Monday to Saturday, with one draw taking place at midday and another taking place in the evening.
Players can choose their own stake, but entry costs a minimum of XCD 1.00.
To play, choose three numbers between 1 and 34 or go for a Quick Pick for numbers chosen at random. Also, because these numbers are chosen independently, players can select the same number two or three times if they wish.
Players must choose the type of bet they wish to place, such as:
In-Line: match numbers in the exact order they are drawn.
For example, players who choose 1, 2 and 3 will only win if 1, 2 and 3 are drawn in this exact order.
3-Way Mix: match three digits in any order, with two digits needing to be the same.
For example, players who choose 1, 1 and 2 will win if 1, 1 and 2 / 1, 2 and 1 or 2, 1 and 1 are drawn.
6-Way Mix: match three digits in any order.
For example, players who choose 1, 2 and 3 will win if 1, 2 and 3 / 1, 3 and 2 / 2, 1 and 3 / 2, 3 and 1 / 3, 1 and 2 or 3, 2 and 1 are drawn.
Front Pair: match the first two digits.
For example, players who choose 1, 2 and X will win if 1 and 2 are the first two numbers drawn.
Split Pair: match the first and third digits.
For example, players who choose 1, X and 2 will win if 1 is drawn first and 2 is drawn last.
Back Pair: match the last two digits.
For example, players who choose X, 2 and 3 will win if 2 is drawn second and 3 is drawn last.
Back Up: combines an In-Line bet with any mixed bet.
Players who choose Back Up will double their ticket price, with players able to stake up to XCD 10.00 for a single bet or XCD 20.00 for a Back Up bet.
Run twice daily, Pick 3 doesn't have any secondary games.
The Pick 3 jackpot is 55 times the player stake. For example, players who stake XCD 1.00 and match three numbers in order can win XCD 550.00, while players who stake XCD 10.00 can win XCD 5,500.
Pick 3 has no rollovers or roll downs.
The odds of winning the Pick 3 jackpot are 1 in 1,000.
