COLORADO LOTTERY’S NEW ‘PICK 3’ GAME NOW AVAILABLE

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

DENVER, April 29, 2013 –The Colorado Lottery’s newest Jackpot game, “Pick 3,” is now for sale! To play, players simply pick three numbers from zero to nine or they can ask the clerk for a Quick Pick. Tickets cost 50 cents or $1 (depending on bet type) and drawings will occur every night at 7:36 p.m. The prizes range from $30 to $500. Players can win up to $250 on a 50 cent wager or up to $500 on a $1 wager. The odds based on bet type range from 1 in 1,000 down to 1 in 100.

Three-digit lottery games are a mainstay in many parts of the U.S. Today, 38 lotteries across the country offer a three-digit game similar to Pick 3. Colorado is joining surrounding states such as Nebraska, Kansas. Oklahoma, New Mexico and Arizona by selling a Pick 3 style game. Over the years, the Colorado Lottery has received thousands of inquiries about when it would be launching a Pick 3 game.

“We believe that Coloradans will love our new Pick 3 game,” said Abel J. Tapia, director of the Colorado Lottery. “We encourage everyone to give it a try – it is simple – you just pick 3 numbers! Like all of our other games, proceeds from the sale of Pick 3 tickets stay in Colorado to help fund parks, recreation wildlife conservation and open space across the state.”
