Select how much you'd like to bet: $0.50 or $1. A $0.50 wager has a top prize of $2,500, and a $1 wager has a top prize of $5,000.
Which bet type will you try? With six to choose from, there's something for everyone. Which play style you choose determines the way(s) your numbers can match the numbers drawn to win a prize.
- Straight: Match all four numbers drawn in exact order
- Box: Match all four numbers drawn in any order
Box can be 4-, 6-, 12- or 24-way, depending on how many identical or unique digits you choose, which affects how many ways you can match the numbers drawn to win. See the table below for details.
- Front Three: Match the first three numbers drawn in exact order
- Back Three: Match the last three numbers drawn in exact order
Select which draw(s) to play: Day (1:50 pm), Night (7:50 pm), or Both.

Advance Play lets you enter a future draw up to seven days in advance. Choose the day and draw time, or if you want to play more than once, let the retailer know your start and end dates.
Your final ticket cost is determined by your wager times the number of plays and draws you've selected.
