Pick 3 is not available for everyone; only those in Belgium can play the game as long as they have attained the legal gambling age. However, other nationals who visit Belgium can also participate in this lotto game as long as they are within the country's borders.
When deciding to play Pick 3, one must buy a ticket, which can be found at a National Lottery-approved retail location in Belgium. A ticket costs €1. When purchasing the ticket, the retailer gives the player a payslip from which they can pick three numbers from zero to nine.
Of course, the numbers picket must be in the form of 000 to 999. Once the retailer has processed the slip, he will issue the player a game ticket containing the player's number combinations and the draw date. This ticket must be provided when collecting winnings.
For those who don't want to visit ticket retailers, there is an option of buying Pick 3 lottery tickets online. This can be done through the official National Lottery website only. The site is only accessible from Belgium, irrespective of whether one is a Belgian or a foreigner. Hence, playing the game online without leaving the comfort of one's home is possible.
Important: When purchasing a ticket at the retailer, one should secure and authenticate it by signing at the back. If this doesn't happen and someone else finds it, they can sign and use it to claim a prize in case of a win.
