WHY PLAY PICK3?
With PICK3 you have no more to match 6 numbers and lose to the odds of winning. The top prize might not be as big as with Lotto and other games, but odds of winning it are 1 in 1,000 and you can enjoy the game on a daily basis. If you want just to have fun and perceive games of chance in such a way, PICK3 can be a perfect fit for you. The potential prize of R10,000 awarded for opting for the Straight bet type and matching 3 numbers in the exact order make the game worth trying.
