Pick 3 Midday Bonus Numbers Promotion

Pick 3 Midday Bonus Numbers Promotion

The Orange Ball Is Back!

For four weeks beginning Oct. 19, you can DOUBLE your chance of winning cash during the Midday drawing with the Pick 3 Bonus Numbers promotion.

Here's how the promotion works:
From Oct. 19 - Nov. 15, during the Missouri Lottery’s Midday drawings, immediately prior to that day’s Midday Pick 3 drawing, the draw manager will conduct a drawing from a separate container that holds three white balls and one colored Pick 3 bonus ball.  If the colored Pick 3 bonus ball is drawn, players will have two chances to win on tickets purchased for that Midday Pick 3 drawing.  When TWO sets of numbers are drawn, there will be TWICE the number of winners! There's a one-in-four chance that a second set of numbers will be drawn EVERY DAY!

It is guaranteed the orange ball will be drawn at least four times! If the orange ball isn't drawn four times during the promotion, the Lottery will continue the Bonus Numbers promotion until it is drawn.
