What Is the NJ Pick 3?

The New Jersey Lottery's Pick 3 is a lottery game in which players choose three single-digit numbers for a 50-cent entry fee. The lottery holds drawings twice daily, at 12:59pm and 7:58pm. Players who get all three numbers correct on a standard ticket win $275, as of 2015.

The lottery has several other play options available, including three-way and six-way box bets and wheel bets where the numbers can match in any order. Players can also bet on just two of the numbers. The game began on May 22, 1975, as a once-daily drawing. The lottery added a second daily drawing in November 2001.
