Eric,I can help you with this information. Based on there being three numbers, each from 1-9 "with replacement" (meaning they are each drawn separately, so a particular number being drawn on the first digit has no affect on the second) is 729:1. I noticed that you didn't include - as one of the possible numbers. These odds are based on only 1-9. If you include 0, the odds would be 1000:1. The calculation for the odds:9*9*9=729There are 729 possible combinations of those three digits. Since exact order is required, each combination represents a distinct outcome.
If the Pick 3 you are referring to is the Suertres Lotto, the number can include digits from 0-9, so for example 000 is a valid number. In that case, the odds are 1000:1
The payout of Suertres Lotto is 450:1 - for every Php10.00 played, the winners receive Php4,500
