How to Play Cash 3

Play Cash 3 by choosing three numbers from 0 to 9. There are various play types available, while you can also decide how much to wager on the game. Cash 3 is only available in Western Australia, with draws taking place every day. You need to get your entries in before 5:00pm on the day of the draw. Learn more about how to play Western Cash 3, including the different ways you can take part.

How Cash 3 Works

Three numbers from 0 to 9 are randomly selected in each Cash 3 draw. Each one is drawn from a separate set of 10 numbers (0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 and 9), so there is a chance that the same number can appear two or even three times in a draw.

As a player, you have control over whether you want to try and match the numbers in exactly the same order as they have been drawn, or in any order. You also have the option to spend $0.50 or $1 on a single entry. The size of your wager, and the play type you choose, both determine how much you can win. Follow the steps below to play WA Cash 3:

  • Select a three-digit number from 000 to 999

Play Types

For each of the play types below, you can decide whether to choose your own numbers or go for a Slikpik. If you request a Slikpik, a set of random numbers will be generated on your ticket. Here’s more about the available play types.

  • Exact Order - The target is to match your three numbers to the winning numbers in exactly the same order. You can pick any three-digit number from 000 to 999
  • Any Order - You are aiming to match the three winning numbers and the order does not matter. For example, if you pick 123 you would still win if the winning number was 312

For the ‘Any Order’ wager, the combination of numbers you select also makes a difference to the prizes you can win:


6 Way (all three numbers are different)

When all three of your numbers are different, there are six different ways in which they can be ordered. For example, the numbers 123 can also be arranged as 132, 213, 231, 312 and 321. As there is a higher chance of winning, the associated payout is lower.


3 Way (two numbers are the same)

If two of your three numbers are repeated, there are only three ways in which they can be ordered. For example, if you entered the numbers 337, they could also be arranged as 373 or 733. There is a lower chance of this happening with just three possibilities rather than six, so the available prize is greater.

How to Win Cash 3

To win a Cash 3 prize, you have to match the numbers according to the play type you have selected. For example, if you submit an ‘Exact Order’ entry, you do not win anything if your numbers appear in a different order. The prize amounts you win are fixed based on the play types and wager sizes that are available. Go to the Cash 3 Dividends page to find out all the different prizes and the odds of winning.
