UPIC-3 is a "Guess the Numbers" style game where you try to pick which 3 number combinations will appear on the game board for big points.
When the game begins, you must first select which 3 numbers you think are the lucky numbers by clicking on the numbered squares below the game board. You can select
the same number more than once and you can choose them in any order. When you click on a number, it will appear in the circles on the game board. Don't worry if you
make a mistake. If you change your mind, click on the number on the circle to make it disappear and click on a new number below the game board to replace it.
Now that you have your 3 lucky numbers, you now have to bet on which lines the numbers will appear on the game board, and in what order. STRAIGHT refers to the numbers
being in the exact order that you selected. If you selected 123 - then 123 would have to appear - 231 or 321 would lose. A row is read from left to right - a column is
read from top to bottom. BOX refers to the numbers being in any order based on what you selected. If you selected 123 - then any combination of 123 would win (213, 231,
321, 312, 123, 132). The straight bet pays considerably more than the box bet - so the choice is up to you. To make your bets - you can click on any of the lights on
the game board that correspond to the row or column you wish to bet on. Red lights are for Straight Bets, Blue lights are for Box Bets. You can only bet on either
Straight or Box for a particular row or column (not both). - OR - if you want to bet either All Straight or All box, you can click on the corresponding button on the
right of the screen.
When you are satisfied with the selections you have made, click on the green GO button to start filling in the game board. One square on the game board will allow you
to select which number you want to put there. Be sure to look at your game board before selecting so you can maximize your payouts. You will be awarded with your payouts
once the game has finished choosing numbers.
