Pick 4

Pick 4 is a NM draw game where you can win up to $5,500 twice a day!


Prizes start at $28 and go up to $5,500, depending on the play type. The cost per play is just $1 per drawing.

Drawings take place seven days a week, twice per day, at approximately 1:00 PM (Day Drawing) and 9:30 PM (Evening Drawing), Mountain Time (MT). You can buy tickets right up until the draw time for both Day and Evening draws.

How to Play

Each playslip has five boards with letters A-E. Play up to five sets of four numbers per playslip ($1 per play).

Select four numbers from 0 to 9, or use Quick Pick to have the Lottery terminal randomly generate your numbers. Mark a number in each column of the playslip.

Choose one of the three play types:

  • Straight (STR): Win by matching the numbers drawn in exact order.
  • Box: Match the numbers drawn in any order to win.
  • Straight/Box (STR/BOX): Win when you match the numbers drawn in EXACT and/or ANY order.

Pick a Draw Type: DAY, EVE, or DAY & EVE.

To play a future drawing (not valid for the current day), check the Advance Play box for the draw you want. If you don't select a draw, the play will be entered in the next draw.

With Multi Draw, you can play up to 14 drawings in a row - choose either DAY or EVE. You may also select DAY & EVE, in which case you'll receive tickets for up to 28 consecutive draws.
