                                                                        SHORT-CUT TO ‘PLAY’

This lottery game consists of picking 3 numbers, out of 10 digits; 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 0, each week. You just pick any three, in any order say; 4, 8 and 3, – that’s all.


Results are drawn Saturday evenings. They can be viewed (live) webcast as Pick 3 results at , 11.59pm Nigerian time (5.59pm Texas time). Three winner numbered-balls are sucked out sequentially,  from three transparent jars, each of which contains a complete set of the 10 basic digital numbers. – Example: 7, followed by 2, and finally by 5)

If you guessed these numbers correctly in your Entry selection, say 2-5-7, you would have won ‘Pick-any-3’ lottery in the 3-out-of-3 or First dividend category. If you missed one number, say your selection was 2-3-7, you have won in the 2-out-of-3 or Second dividend category. If you got only one number correctly, say your selection was 1-7-0, you have won in the 1-out-of-3 or Third dividend category.

Cost of each lottery ticket is ₦1. There is a minimum of 500 tickets to enter a three-number selection in the lottery competitions. The 500-ticket stock is your Entry-selection ticket Stock or just Entry Stock. The maximum stock allowed on an Entry-selection is 5000 tickets, therefore the cost of an Entry-selection ranges from ₦500 to ₦5000.

Selection Stocks are registered and submitted into the lottery competitions on a Lottery Registration Form. This Form is actually the Lottery Ticket. Each Form Ticket registers up to 5 Entry chances, namely; A, B, C, D, E. Hence (5 x ₦500) or ₦2500 would be required to submit a full (5-Entry Selections) Ticket, for Registration. However, you do not have to play all five Entry chances on the Ticket. You may just purchase one Entry stock, (of ‘₦500 – ₦5000’) under –Slot A, and Register the Ticket. You will still be equitably rewarded if you win. Below is how it works.


                                                                       HOW IT WORKS

Suppose you purchased ₦1350 worth of ticket-stock on Entry-selection 8-3-4, and another candidate Jon purchased ₦500 ticket-stock on Entry-selection 3-4-8.  And suppose, come Saturday, the winning numbers turn out to be 4-8-3.

Well both of you have won the lottery in First dividend category. After due processing of winnings, the Cash-pot money is shared equitably, per ₦1-worth, to all winner-tickets. [Example: Cash-pot money = ₦150000, all winning tickets = (3000 @ ₦1) = ₦3000]. ₦150000 is shared by ₦3000 tickets. Suppose, this ratio turns out to be, 50:1, (as is here),  then Jon gets (50 x ₦500) or ₦25,000 for his ₦500-Stock, while you get (50 x ₦1350) or ₦67,500 for your ₦1350-Stock, – under the same Dividend sharing. Same procedure goes for the Second dividend (2-out-of-3) and Third dividend winners. So, the more your Entry ticket-Stock you purchased, the more is your worth is at the winnings.



To Play: You need; (1) Internet device (Smart phone, Tablet, Laptop, Desktop) and a viable Bank account with ‘phone-banking’ facility(USSD). (2); To Read, Understand and Familiarize yourself with the features and workings of ‘Pick-any-3-from-10’ lottery, as detailed in the Website pages. (3); To get a copy of, (or download from the website), the shortened version ‘Short cut to Play’, for quick ready Reference. OR  (4); Consult a Pick-3-Agent: – FLAG, SCAG or SPAGAND (5); To be 18 years or older.


Payment Remittance

After picking your lucky numbers for the week; [this could be forecast from the ‘Past Winning Numbers’ page for (2010-2022) results, on the website], you need to first PAY for the total Ticket costs (since you already know what you wish to Play and, the minimum and maximum Entry costs). You have three options; A, B, C, to pay for lottery Tickets Purchase and Registration:

(A) Direct phone-banking transfer facility. FirstBank customers who have USSD service are to use: *894*89403983*Amount#; Other Banks’ customers having USSD facility with their respective Banks, are to use *402*89403983*Amount#, OR, *XXX*89403983*Amount#, where XXX is the USSD pre-code for the said Bank. Example: for Zenith Bank, it is *966*89403983*Amount#; for GT Bank, it is *737*89403983*Amount#.

You will get two (2) Bank text ALERTs on successful Transaction.[i] The First would say; [‘Transaction Successful; UID:101300003248765387, ₦xxx from (your Account) to (Account #: 89403983)’] This ALERT may not stay (auto-save) on your phone when you close it, so; Record the UID number and the transaction Amount stated. Sometimes the UID is long, stretching up to an 18-digit number. Record it anyway before closing the message. [ii] The Second ALERT is the usual information message from your Bank, reporting Debit transaction on your Account. Record the Amount that was debited to you, in favor of Lottery General. [Inter-bank transfers may cost extra ₦10 to ₦50 above Remittance amount, (– but that is not part of what you paid into Lottery General Account), so during Registration, you should subtract the extra fee and state exactly what you Remitted for your Ticket]. Record also the Date and Time of Transaction, and Remittance Phone (i.e. Phone number that was used to Remit the payment in the phone-banking transfer, as indicated in the ALERT communication). At Registration, the Phone-Banking Remittance-Payment Grid Request Code is 1111. 

(B) Recall your correct GRID Number and Password, then request to Debit your GRID Reserve using Grid Request (GDRQST) Code 2222; [GRID Reserve is small temporary reserve from previous winning, to be utilized during emergency shortages].

(C) Use Freelance Agency services, FLAG. [A Freelance Agent, will carry out all the above, including help in phone-banking remittance, – for a small assistance commission Fee , and he also gets credited (5 – 10)%  share of the Winnings]. For FLAG assistance; Grid Request Code is 3333.

[Everybody obtains GRID and FLAG numbers after their first game]. However, you are required to enter self-chosen GRID password and FLAG password, pre-emptively. These should be five-digit numbers each, between 10000 and 99999. Your GRID and FLAG are initially issued against these Passwords and may be later changed with Grid Request Code = 4444.

Agents and Agencies

There are two categories of Agents; the Freelance Commission Agent (FLAG) and the Specialized Commission Agent (SCAG) or just Special Agent (SPAG).   A Freelance agent works to assist Contestants play the lottery correctly and effectively. In this, the FLAG gets compensated and remunerated for his efforts, as stated under ‘Pick-any-3 agency’ above.

A Specialized Commission agent does about the same thing as a Freelance except that a SPAG works on behalf of the Company, either temporarily or permanently, as his case may be. He is rewarded by the Company on augmented commissions, as merited by his efforts.

Now, if you must use the services of an Agent, convince yourself that he is reliable (known to you, preferably). Lottery General is pre-absolved of all responsibility for financial loses arising from any irregular circumstances.

In cases where you have to hand over money for USSD phone banking or other remittance, ensure that the registered Win-Bank Account is yours, and that the Remittance UID corresponds with what is online at the “Check Ticket/Registration” window of the ‘PLAY NOW’ page. Always validate your Ticket number, Remittance UID & Remittance Phone No. immediately after such Registration, in the presence of the Agent. If he pays for your Registration from his GRID Reserve (i.e. GDRQST = 3333), there is no UID to show you, but still ensure that the Win-Bank Account and GRID number are Yours. [Note there is no way to authenticate whether he actually has the money in his Reserve, or Not, before the overall lottery evaluations at end of the Week.

It is most advisable to pay for Registration from your own GRID Reserve (i.e. Grid Request = 2222), whether using Agent’s assistance or not. The reserve is built up for you by safeguarding a small percentage of your winnings each time. You may also build up your reserve by Remitting more than the actual Ticket cost each time you remit money for Registration-payment (i.e. Grid Request, 1111). Any excess remittance over the Ticket cost is automatically credited to your GRID reserve by the system. If you have money in your Reserve, all you need do is quote your GRID, and enter (Grid Request = 2222). [Note that your Remittance is backed by your GRID Reserve, in cases of insufficient Remittance].  This eliminates the anxiety of handing over money to an Agent, or the problems of failed electronic banking network, and repetitive Personal data Registrations each time you play ‘Pick-any-3-from-10’ lottery.
