$300,000 up for grabs as Cash 3 turns 20!

For 20 years Western Australians have been playing Cash 3 – the game that brightens your day.

Since 1998, players have been picking three numbers between 000 and 999 trying to match the winning numbers, winning daily prizes of up to $500.

Lotterywest spokesperson Pina Compagnone said Cash 3 was popular amongst local players as the cheapest lottery game on offer with tickets costing as little as 50 cents.

 “The odds are pretty great, starting from just 1 in 166 to score a win,” Ms Compagnone said.

“This humble game is inexpensive and very simple but returns so much to our community.”

“Cash 3 has raised over $33 million for the WA community over the last 10 years,and $3.3 million of this was raised in the last financial year alone which is a fantastic outcome.”

Owner of Galleria Lottery Centre, Julie Chew, said she sees her regular Cash 3 customers daily to put their lucky numbers on.

 “A lot of superstition goes into choosing their Cash 3 numbers,” Ms Chew said.

“They use their birthday numbers, house numbers, even their phone numbers!”

Everyone is a winner with Lotterywest. Almost all money spent on Lotterywest games is returned to the WA community through prize payouts and grants. Last financial year this totalled $463 million shared amongst local winners and over $260 million given in grants.
