Biggest Play 3 Winners and Jackpots

You will hardly know anything about the Play 3 first-prize winners. The amounts that are drawn here are not very high. Besides, the CT Lottery, unlike Colorado lotteries (for example, Pick 3, Cash 5, or Lotto Plus), never reveals their name, town, or any other information about them to the public. However, you can still be on the list!

Play 3 Rules in Connecticut

Play 3 is one of the oldest in-house games founded by the Connecticut Lottery Corporation. It debuted in 1977 as “The Daily Number,” and its draws occurred every day. In 2007, the lottery was rebranded and got the name “Play 3,” while the number of draws was increased to twice a day. With the addition of the Wild Ball feature in 2021, its players will have more chances to win. 

Play 3 has some characteristics that beginners need to know:

  • The age of participation is 18 and over.
  • Play 3 was founded for Connecticut residents only.
  • Wild Ball is the option that raises your winning chances but doubles your wagers.
  • There are more than 20 prizes in this game, and you can play it twice a week.
  • You can buy tickets at a vending machine or at a local official retailer. They are not sold online. This is true for other Connecticut lotteries too, but among them, there are international lotteries. Just check our list of the best online lottery sites and find the most interesting one for you.

Play 3 offers several types of play depending on the digits you pick and the wagers you make:

  • Straight – this style implies that the order of the three single-digit numbers you’ve selected matches the exact order of the numbers appearing within the draw. For example, if you choose 138, you will win if the computer only shows 138.
  • Box – preferring this type means that you win in whatever order the numbers appear. So, your choice of 372 (for example) will bring you a prize if there are 372, 723, 237, 273, 327, or 732; this is called the 6-Way Box. The selection of 2 identical numbers will give you just three combinations (for example, 585, 558, and 855), but the prize is higher in this case.
  • Straight/Box – this play combines the features of both previous types. You can win in an exact or random order, but the prize is the sum of Straight and Box winnings.
  • Pairs – you can choose two single-digit numbers and their position – that may be front (F), split (S), or back (B). For example, if you picked 59 (F), you win at any combination, starting with 59. In the case of (S) choice, combinations like 5X9 where X is any number, bring you the prize. In the end, 59 (B) means your win if the X59 number appears while drawing.
  • Combo – you may win up to $500 by choosing three more numbers on the same playslip. Only an exact match will result in you receiving your money.

So, you should also know how to play:

  1. Buy your ticket and pay the sum you decided on for a wager.
  2. Add the Wild Ball feature if you like.
  3. Select 3 one-digit numbers ranging from 0 to 9 and fill out the playslip.
  4. Mark the type of the play – Straight, Box, Pairs, etc.
  5. Have your ticket printed and wait for the results.

You may see if your numbers have ever been drawn on the CT Lottery’s official site. Welcome to our site to follow the results of Play 3 and other US lotteries.
