This game is like no other.  You can win anywhere from $1-$600.  Hmm?


Here's more info:

Nebraska Pick 3 will give players the chance to not only select the numbers they wish to play, but also the opportunity to decide what type of play style and potential prizes to play for.

Players can first choose from four bet types; Straight, Box, Straight/Box or Combo. Each bet type costs $1. The bet type selected determines the possible prizes by matching combinations of the winning numbers.


Players will pick three numbers, each from a separate set of ten digits (0 through 9). The numbers can be unique such as 1, 2, 3 or identical such as 1, 1, 1.

A standard Nebraska Pick 3 play consisting of one set of three numbers and one bet type for a single drawing, will cost $1. Each bet type costs $1.


The three numbers selected will be played against the winning numbers drawn, according to the following four bet types.

Straight: match all three numbers in the exact order drawn—

(one prize level)

--exact order match--$600

Box: match all three numbers drawn in any order—

(two prize levels)

--6-way match--$100

--3-way match--$200

Straight/Box: match the numbers drawn in either exact or any order—

(three prize levels)

--straight match--$350

--six-way match--$50

--3-way match--$126

Combo: match 1, 2 or 3 numbers drawn in exact position within the order drawn—

(three prize levels)

--3 numbers in exact order--$100

--2 numbers in exact position--$8

--1 number in exact position--$1

Games similar to Nebraska Pick 3 are offered by many other lotteries across the nation, including those in Iowa, Kansas and Missouri.

In August 2004, the Nebraska Lottery conducted a web-based survey to test various concepts for a new Lotto game. The survey was conducted through the Nebraska Lottery website, www.nelottery.com, and drew almost 1,000 responses.

The survey asked respondents' impressions of everything ranging from a game's matrix (how many numbers are drawn) to its prize structure, and from a game's play style to drawing frequency. Results were used to examine various game concepts, and led to the decision to introduce Nebraska Pick 3 as the fourth Lotto game offered by the Nebraska Lottery.

How are you going to win if you don't play?

    Sounds like more money will be available to the players under this system.  Texas would never go for that.

      Watch out for the tax withholding cut off with higher prizes.  BobP

        I still believe NE should offer Hot Lotto.
