Red Ball is a bonus drawing held right after each Pick 3 drawing, giving Pick 3 players a chance to win more money – about 20% more!
For this promotion, a separate drawing machine is filled with a total of seven balls (six white balls and one Red Ball). Immediately following the Pick 3 drawings, one ball will be drawn from the separate Red Ball drawing machine.
If a white ball is drawn, Pick 3 winners for that midday or evening drawings take home the standard Pick 3 prize payout amount. And, the white ball drawn, is removed from the machine – making the odds of drawing the Red Ball for the next Pick 3 drawings that much better! In fact, each time a white ball is drawn, it will be removed from the machine.
If a Red Ball is drawn, Pick 3 players with winning tickets take home approximately 20 percent more in prize money. With a winning $1 Pick 3 straight bet, that’s $99 more. After each Red Ball is drawn, all seven balls are put back into the drawing device for the next drawing.
The Red Ball is guaranteed to be drawn at least once every seven drawings.
