Good things definitely come in threes with Pick 3! This popular AZ draw game offers nine ways to win, and it costs just $1 per play to win up to $500. You can also play two games for $1 and win up to $250 per game.

Drawings take place Monday through Saturday evenings. Ticket sales close at 7:59 PM MST for that evening’s draw (during daylight savings time, it’s 6:59 PM). The draw itself takes place soon afterwards.
