To kick off the new midday drawings, the four-week Pick 3 Midday Bonus Numbers Promotion is offering midday Pick 3 players an extra chance to win. During the midday drawing (conducted at 12:57 p.m. daily), the Pick 3 winning numbers are drawn from the Pick 3 drawing machines. A second drawing is then conducted from a separate drawing container that holds six white balls and one orange ball. If the orange ball is drawn, a BONUS set of Pick 3 numbers is then selected, and players have a second chance to win from the same ticket purchase. When TWO sets of numbers are chosen, there are TWICE the number of winners!
