Playing PICK 3™ is easy. It’s the game where you can play today and get paid today. You can win a top prize of $500 with a $1 Straight play, or increase your chances of winning with a Box, Straight/Box, Combo, Pairs or 1-OFF® play. So many options to try! Simply select your lucky numbers and play it your way any day – twice a day. Midday and evening drawings offer two chances to play – and win!
To play, pick up a PICK 3 playslip at an authorized Florida Lottery retailer. Each playslip contains five panels (A-E). In each panel played:
1. Select one number (from 0 through 9) from each column for a total of three digits, or mark the QP (Quick Pick) box and let the terminal randomly pick some or all of your numbers. For a Front Pair play, select numbers from the first two columns only; and, for a Back Pair play, select numbers from the last two columns only.
2. Select the play type: Straight, Box, Straight/Box, 1-OFF, Combo, Front Pair, or Back Pair.
3. Select the amount you want to play: 50 cents or $1 (all Straight/Box and 1-OFF plays cost $1; Combo plays cost $1.50 to $6.00).
4. Select the draw time. Select MID for the midday drawing (1:30 p.m. ET), EVE for the evening drawing (9:45 p.m. ET) draw, or BOTH for both the midday and evening drawings. If no draw time is marked, the terminal will automatically print a ticket for the next available draw. If BOTH is selected, two separate tickets will print – one for the midday drawing and one for the evening drawing.
5. To Advance Play the same numbers and play types up to 14 consecutive days for the selected draw time(s), simply mark the number in the “Days” section on your playslip.
6. Give your completed playslip and payment to the retailer. You will receive a ticket for each set of selected numbers and draw date(s). Please check your ticket(s) before you leave the store. You are responsible for the accuracy of your ticket(s).
7. Check the official drawing results to see if you’re a winner! Draw results are available on this website, at authorized Florida Lottery retailers and by calling (850) 921-PLAY (7529). You may also watch the drawings online.
PICK 3 drawings are held twice daily, seven days per week, at 1:30 p.m. and 9:45 p.m. ET. Tickets for each drawing may be purchased up to 11 minutes prior to the applicable drawing – 1:19 p.m. ET for the midday drawings and 9:34 p.m. ET for the evening drawings.
If you claim a prize on a winning Advance Play ticket before all of the drawings on the ticket have occurred, you will be issued a continuation ticket for the remaining draws with the same play numbers and play types as the original ticket.
How to Play 1-Off®
–> Ever feel like you’re close, but you’ve somehow missed the mark? With 1-OFF® you can miss by one and still win a cash prize. That’s 26 more chances to win!
To play, simply pick up a PICK 3 playslip at an authorized Florida Lottery retailer.
Select your three numbers, or QP to let the terminal randomly pick some or all of your numbers.
Mark the 1-OFF® box on the PICK 3 playslip.
Select the draw time: MID, EVE, or BOTH.
Once you give your completed playslip and payment to the retailer, you will receive a ticket printed with your 3-digit number and the 1-OFF numbers higher or lower than your 3-digit number.
During the PICK 3 drawing, 3 numbers will be drawn at random. If your 3-digit number is a Straight match to the numbers, you win $250. Or, if any of your 1-OFF numbers match the PICK 3 numbers drawn, you can win up to $10.
Now you know how to play PICK 3 1-OFF!
How to Win
Players who match all three of the winning numbers drawn in the official PICK 3™ drawing for the date played can win up to $500, depending on the play type purchased and the amount played. Front Pair or Back Pair players who match two numbers in exact order can win up to $50.
Unlike the Lottery’s other Draw games, which are pari-mutuel in design (that is, players are vying for a portion of what is in the prize pool), PICK 2, PICK 3, PICK 4, and PICK 5 offer set prize payouts. Therefore, the Lottery has established a $8 million liability limit for PICK 3 for any particular three-digit number for each drawing. Should any three digit combination (for example 777) be purchased often enough in a single drawing that would result in the liability limit being exceeded, the Lottery will “cut off” further sales of that specific number combination. In addition, no Front Pair or Back Pair that involves the first two or last two digits, respectively, of the three-digit number will be allowed for that drawing. Players that have already played those numbers will still win the full amount of the set prize even if the liability limit has been met. For more details on this issue, please refer to the Pick 3 game rule, section (1)(i).
No more snow days; University of Missouri faculty and staff to work online during winter weather events
COLUMBIA, Mo. (KMIZ)
University of Missouri officials say faculty and staff are now expected to work virtually during winter weather events.
The decision means university employees will still be expected to work during snow and ice storms when the campus closes.
MU Vice Chancellor for Operations Gary Ward and Provost Latha Ramchand said in the release the permanent change will keep the university operating smoothly through such events.
The release states employees who are not required to work on-campus can carry out duties by telework and others who are not needed in-person will be required to work online.
It included some hourly workers are non-exempt from the new rule and may be eligible for premium pay. The release said that employees can still take time off.
University spokesman Christian Basi said modern technology allows faculty and staff to continue their duties without interruption.
“We realized (based on our experience through the pandemic) that we now have technology that is reliable and accessible enough that it allows us to not lose productivity or teaching experiences,” Basi said. “This ensures the business of the university can continue even when weather creates challenges.”
The university can also close campus early or open later based on the weather conditions.
Students are not affected by the policy change.

Judge rejects request to halt work on I-30
A Pulaski County circuit judge on Wednesday refused to stop work on a construction project on Interstate 30 through downtown Little Rock and North Little Rock, ruling that plaintiffs behind a lawsuit questioning whether the state can pay for the project do not have evidence to justify halting construction.
The plaintiffs had asked for Judge Mackie Pierce for a preliminary injunction to stop work on the project, dubbed 30 Crossing, until their lawsuit can be decided at trial.
“The case law is clear that I am to deny this extraordinary remedy,” Pierce said. “I just do not see how a preliminary injunction is appropriate. There is no showing of irreparable harm.”
All the plaintiffs have to offer is speculation and “words of uncertainty,” but no hard evidence that they’re being harmed in a manner that would justify a preliminary injunction, Pierce said.
The judge also cast doubt on whether the plaintiffs can win their 3-week-old suit. Their next move will be defending the litigation against a motion to dismiss from state lawyers.
The plaintiffs are a coalition of downtown Little Rock neighborhoods and residents who oppose the project. They are suing the Arkansas Department of Transportation and its director, Lorie Tudor, to force an accounting of how the agency will pay for the 6.7-mile corridor through downtown Little Rock and a companion project in Saline County.
The group demands the department show how the work will be paid for given an October ruling by the Arkansas Supreme Court that restricts use of a highway-repair fund generated by a statewide sales tax.
The group contends the high-court ruling eliminates a substantial income stream that highway builders were relying on to back the project, a claim that state lawyers say is “wrong” and based on a “misinterpretation” of that ruling.
In response to the lawsuit, agency officials said the Transportation Department is using a mix of federal money and regular state matching funds to pay for the multiphase project, which is ultimately expected to cost in excess of $1 billion. The first phase of the project is underway now with a $632 million price tag.
The first phase is centered on a new Arkansas River bridge. It will feature three through lanes, two-collector-distributor lanes and an auxiliary lane in both directions. In Little Rock, the phase will include a new I-30/Cantrell Road interchange. Removal of the cloverleaf ramps of the existing interchange will leave 18 acres available for a park or other public space.
In North Little Rock, the phase will include a new interchange at Broadway and improvements to I-30 from there to Interstate 40.
Work that is starting this month includes construction on Mahlon Martin Street, the east frontage road between East Sixth Street and the Cantrell Road interchange and the west frontage road entrance ramp at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock William H. Bowen School of Law.
On I-30 itself, work will begin to remove the center median on the North Little Rock side.
Pierce’s decision Wednesday came after a 2½-hour hearing centered on the testimony of two of the plaintiffs, both economists living downtown, John Hedrick and Dale Pekar.
The men had analyzed the department’s spending plans, telling the judge the project, already with a ballooning price tag, would cost even more if the state runs out of money mid-project. That would require construction to be halted until the state can come up with the funds to pay for further work, they said. Such a delay could inflict significant grief and inconvenience on travelers if, for example, the I-30 river bridge were torn down before the state could pay for its replacement, they said.
Plaintiffs attorney Richard Mays said the state can’t pay for the project if the Transportation Department can’t tap Connecting Arkansas Program money, the highway construction fund paid for by a sales tax approved by voters in 2012. The lawsuit is premised on the October Supreme Court ruling that those funds cannot be used on highways wider than four lanes.
Opposing the call for the work stoppage, attorney Rita Looney, Transportation Department chief counsel, told the judge that Mays is “just plain wrong” about the meaning of the high-court decision. All the plaintiffs can do is speculate about funding issues without showing proof any problems actually exist, she said, telling the judge the department has the resources to fully pay for the work. Looney said there are numerous grounds for the judge to throw out the suit and that her next move will be a motion to dismiss the case.
The plaintiffs include the Little Rock Downtown Neighborhood Association, the Pettaway Neighborhood Association, the Hanger Hills Neighborhood Association, the Forest Hills Neighborhood Association, the Coalition of Little Rock Neighborhoods and the Arkansas Communities Organization. The individual plaintiffs are Barbara Barrows; state Rep. Denise Ennett; recent City Council candidate Rohn Muse; law professor Joshua Silverstein; and community activist Kathy Wells, president of the Little Rock neighborhood coalition.
