The only thing I havenâ€™t figured out is the 1000 dollar prize. Is it,

```
matching last digit or \
last two digits match last digit or \
all three digits match last digit
```

?

Pardon my confusion.

Here is a test sequence based upon what Iâ€™ve discrened from the OP codeâ€¦

```
import itertools
def result(g, d):
# exact match
if g == d: return "You have won 10,000 dollars!"
# same digits, different order
if tuple(d) in itertools.permutations(tuple(g), 3): return "You have won 3,000 dollars!"
# match one or two positions
match_pos = [ int(g[0] == d[0] and g[0]), int(g[1] == d[1] and g[1]), int(g[2] == d[2] and g[2]) ]
if sum(match_pos) is 0: return "Not a winner."
# match one or two digits
match_digs = [ int(g[0] in d and g[0]), int(g[1] in d and g[1]), int(g[2] in d and g[2]) ]
return "Something matches", match_pos, match_digs, d
print (result(guess, draw))
guess, draw = '456', '416'
print (result(guess, draw))
guess, draw = '456', '461'
print (result(guess, draw))
```

refactoring

```

match_digs = ( int(g[0] in d and g[0]), int(g[1] in d and g[1]), int(g[2] in d and g[2]) )
if sum(match_digs) is 0: return "Not a winner."
return "Something matches", match_pos, match_digs, d
guess = get_pick()
draw = get_draw()
print (result(guess, draw))
# arbitrary tests
print (result('456', '416'))
print (result('456', '461'))
print (result('379', '379'))
print (result('379', '937'))
print (result('284', '735'))

The short-circuit of all this is is,

```
print (result(get_pick(), get_draw())
```
