How to Play

Essentially, you wager either 50 cents or $1 on a set of five numbers between 0 and 9 and the order in which they will appear in the drawing. After choosing the five numbers you'd like to play, you can then specify what bet you'd like to make.

Choose your own five numbers from 0 through 9, or let Quick Pick do the work and randomly generate the digits. Play up to five times on a bet slip; each board is one play.

Select the draw(s) you want to enter - Day, Night, or Both.

Determine your wager: $0.50 or $1. How much you bet determines how much you can win.

To play your lucky numbers more than once, there are two options. With Multi-Draw you can play to seven consecutive draws, and with Advance Play you can play up to seven days in the future; simply mark your chosen day and draw time. To play multiple draws, let the retailer know your start and end dates.
