How to Play Pick 4:     

1. Pick any four digits, 0 through 9, OR use Quick Pick to randomly generate your numbers. You can play up to five different boards. 

2. Play it Straight, Box, Straight/Box or Combo.

  • STRAIGHT - Match your four numbers in exact order to win.
  • BOX - Match your four numbers in any order to win.
  • STRAIGHT/BOX - Combines a 50-cent Straight play and a 50-cent Box play on a single play.
  • COMBO - Equal to 4, 6, 12, or 24 Straight plays.

3. Decide how much you want to wager: 

  • You can play 50 cents, or $1 per play.
  • Straight/Box can only be played for $1.
  • Combo tickets cost $2, $3, $6 or $12 for a 50-cent wager and $4, $6, $12 or $24 for a $1 wager.

4. You can play your numbers for 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, or 14 consecutive drawings. Or, you can play the same 4-digit number for any future day through the next six days.
 
5. Mark your choices on a playslip or tell your retailer what you want to play.

Pick 4 drawings are held daily except for Christmas Day and Easter Sunday.  Make sure you buy your tickets for each Pick 4 drawing by 9:30 p.m. on the day of the drawing. Tickets purchased after 9:30 p.m. on drawing nights will be valid for the next drawing(s). Pick 4 winning numbers are displayed on participating television stations every night.
