The Pick 3 game is one of the most popular lottery games in the world and you can now play it in South Africa. Unlike PowerBall and Lotto where most of the prize divisions are pari-mutuel (the prizes depend on how many tickets are sold) the Pick 3 game has fixed prizes and a range of bet types and bet amounts.
The odds of each of the six bet types range from 1 in 1,000 to 1 in 100 - much better than PowerBall or Lotto, however, the prize amounts are not as big. Players can choose to bet R 3, R 5, R 10 or R 20 on each of the six bet types. Even better news for players is that there is a Pick 3 game every day of the week. As with most other Pick 3 games around the world, the most popular bet type in South Africa is the 6-Way Mix as it offers six chances to win and a nice mix of odds and prize value. If you are new to the game, why not try the 6-Way Mix bet?
