Pick 3 / Pick 4
HOW TO PLAY You can play Pick 3 or Pick 4 at most Maryland Lottery® retailers. Just select the number(s) you wish to play by filling out a playslip, or choose Quick Pick and the Lottery terminal will randomly select your numbers for you.


1.  Select the appropriate playslip for the 3-digit or 4-digit numbers you want to play. Each playslip has five panels, so you can select up to five sets of numbers on a single playslip.

  • Mark your numbers on each panel you want to play, OR mark the Quick Pick box for that panel if you want your numbers selected for you.
  • Use only pencil or blue or black ink to make heavy vertical marks through each number you choose. Red ink will not be accepted.
  • If you make an error in your number selection, mark the VOID box for that panel. DO NOT ERASE.
  • If too many or too few numbers are selected on any panel, or if numbers are incorrectly marked for the Bet Type selected, the playslip will be rejected.

2.  Select the Bet Type you’d like to play.

  • For Pick 3, you can choose: Straight, Box, Straight & Box, Front Pair, Back Pair or Combo (Combination).
  • For Pick 4, you can choose: Straight, Box Straight & Box or Combo (Combination).
Dunkirk Man Maryland’s Newest Lottery Millionaire

“I stopped in to my regular place yesterday to play a Pick 4 number when I suddenly remembered a dream I had last week about a huge Lottery win,” the single 49-year-old home improvement contractor told officials. Martin purchased his favorite instant game and sat down to play it in the store.
It was good Martin was sitting down; because he had quite the shock of his life once he began checking his ticket. “When I saw zero after zero after zero in the prize section I jumped up and ran to the counter to tell the cashier – I know the folks that run the place. Everyone in the store was celebrating with lots of hugs.”

Martin went immediately to his brother’s house to share the news. “He saw my face and figured something was wrong. I had to calm him down before I told him about the money,” he joked. “When I did, the hugs started again.”
