Playing the California Daily 3 Lotto

Jun 7, 2008
Daily 3 is an exciting California lottery game that gives you a chance to experience lottery fun daily. Daily 3 is a shared prize-pool game, so prizes are based on the amount wagered per draw and the number of winners dividing that amount. A shared prize pool means that less-played numbers have a better chance at bigger prizes. For this reason, some players try to select less-played numbers. Since most players tend to play the same frequently-played numbers, the prizes for those popular numbers may be split between more winners. This is definitely something to consider when choosing your numbers.

Playing California's Daily 3 Lotto Game

To play California's Daily 3 Lotto Game, you simply select 3 numbers from 0 to 9. If you don't want to pick your own numbers, you can let the computer pick your numbers for you by choosing the Quick Pick option on your playslip. You then choose your play style: Straight, Box or Straight/Box. Each play costs only $1 and can result in huge prizes.

How do I know if I've Won?

To win the Daily 3 jackpot, you must match all 4 numbers. Although the order of the numbers in the box play style does not have to match, you must have all 3 numbers to win. If you choose to play the Straight style of play, you must match all 3 numbers in order. Daily 3 Lotto drawings are held daily around 7pm and can be seen on almost all local news stations. If you miss the TV drawing, you can stop by any California Lottery retailer and ask for a winning numbers report or check out the official California State Lottery website. You can also log onto LuckyLotto. If you win the jackpot, you must collect your winnings within 180 days of the drawing.

Where Does the Money Go?

The California Lottery was created to generate supplemental funding for our public schools in 1984. For every dollar spent on Lottery products, at least 34 cents is returned to the classroom. California Lottery funds go to K-12 education as well as all other areas of public education including: Community Colleges, the University of California, the California State University system, Adult Education, Charter Schools and even the schools at the Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation - Division of Juvenile Justice. California Lottery funds account for approximately 1.5% of all education funding in California. When you play the California, you are not only having fun but also helping a great cause!

Buy Daily 3 Lotto Tickets

If you want to buy California Daily 3 tickets, or any other lottery tickets, simply log onto your official state website. These sites explain how to purchase tickets, and often times tickets can be purchased online so you can play most state lotteries from the comfort of your own home. You can also refer to official state websites for custom lottery news. Many sites offer lottery number generators to help make your lottery number picking easier for you. If you would like to purchase your tickets in person, you can also visit a local lottery terminal. No matter how you choose to purchase your tickets, or which tickets you choose to buy, you're bound to have some fun!
