SRRINGFIELD, Ill. — The Illinois Lottery is launching a new game this weekend.

The new game, called My3, will go on sale Sunday.

According to lottery officials, the game is not replacing Pick 3.

The My3 game will allow players to pick their favorite numbers without the need to specify what type of wager is being made. The prize levels for My3 are also different than Pick 3.

There are two daily My3 drawings. Players must match all three numbers in exact order to win $200. Lesser amounts can be won depending on the order in which the numbers are drawn.

    Give this game 2 aspirin, and a good nights sleep, and maybe it will go away for good.

          The president might also consider forbidding our high unemployment rates, an eroding economy and trillions more in our national deficit.

              lol Yep that's the name of the game My3.

              They should have called it Pick 3 part 2 or Pick 3 the sequel...

              Starts this Sunday so, get the win Illinois!!

              Nice that you get something for at least 2 numbers.

                  I"ll drive over and try it out, on Sunday.

                  If I get 2 out of 3, at least I"ll get my $1.00 back.

                   

                   

                  Good Luck.

                      Bet ya that even beofre the first drawing someone will post a system for it!

                      Sounds to me like Northstar is trying to generate the same action, dollar wise, while reducing payoffs for the games, the Ezmatch on Lucky Day Lotto - top prize is $500 at 210,000:1 odds, and now this game.

                      Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

                      Lep

                      There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

                            A 50 cent straight/box ticket pays better on the regular pick-3 game. Even though both PB and MM jackpots are over $100 million, this lottery believes players will spend a buck for a chance at winning an extra $4.
