If you live in the state of Kentucky, you may have heard about a game called 3 Line Lotto which is offered by Kentucky lottery. It is a really cool game because it is quite innovative. It also has great odds of winning and some good prizes, as well.
First, let me explain how to play the game. 3 Line Lotto costs $2 to play. For every $2 spent, you get three lines of numbers, hence the name of the game. In effect, it really costs you just 66.66 cents per line and that’s good value. Each line gives you 6 numbers between 1 and 39. Jackpots start at $100,000 and continue to grow if they are not won.
To win the jackpot, you must match all six numbers on any one of your lines. Individually, the odds of winning the jackpot on any one of your sets of numbers are 1-in-3,262,623. But since you get three lines per ticket, your odds are actually 1-in-1,087,541. Now that’s great odds!
You could also win prizes ranging from $2 to $500 for matching 3, 4, or 5 numbers on any one line.
So far, there’s nothing really innovative about the 3 Line Lotto game from Kentucky Lottery; it plays just like any other lottery game. But there is more. What makes it innovative is that you can combine numbers from any of your three lines to win additional prizes.
3 lines gives you a total of 18 numbers (3 times 6). Out of those 18 numbers in total, if you match at least 5 numbers, you win additional prizes. There are additional prizes for matching 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, or more numbers and the prizes range from $2 to $2000. If you play the game, you can consider those additional prizes as bonuses.
The best part of the game is that the overall odds of winning any of the prizes is 1-in-6.4. Those are absolutely great odds for a lottery game!
