Texas Daily 4

Daily 4 is an exciting game where you can play your lucky numbers and be strategic by picking your play style! There are lots of ways to play and win four times a day, Monday through Saturday. The minimum play is $0.50 and there are five play types to choose from.

Daily 4 is the first game with the Pair Play! option. You can play the first two, middle two or last two numbers. For example: 12XX, X12X, XX12.



How to play Daily 4

Playing is easy. Choose four single-digit numbers (or two single-digit numbers for Pair Play) from 0-9 (or use Quick Pick and your numbers will be automatically chosen at random).

Next, mark how you want to play your four single-digit numbers for Straight (Exact Order), Box (Any Order), Straight/Box (Exact/Any Order) and Combo or two single-digit numbers for Front Pair, Mid Pair or Back Pair.

To add another way to win, choose the Sum It Up! option. If the sum of the two one-digit numbers you select (playing any of the Pair play types) or four one-digit numbers is the same as the sum of the four numbers drawn, you win!

Daily 4 ways to win
The Numbers You Select Determine the Ways to Win Example Number Selections Example Winning Combinations
4-Way: Select four one-digit numbers with three like digits = four ways to win. 1112 1112, 1121, 1211, 2111
6-Way: Select four one-digit numbers with two pairs = six ways to win. 1122 1122, 1212, 1221, 2112, 2121, 2211
12-Way: Select four one-digit numbers with two like digits = 12 ways to win. 1123 1123, 1132, 1213, 1231, 1312, 1321, 2113, 2131, 2311, 3112, 3121, 3211
24-Way: Select four one-digit numbers with all different digits = 24 ways to win. 1234 1234, 1243, 1324, 1342, 1423, 1432, 2134, 2143, 2314, 2341, 2413, 2431, 3124, 3142, 3214, 3241, 3412, 3421, 4123, 4132, 4213, 4231, 4312, 4321

Sum It Up!

For another way to win, add the Sum It Up! feature. Here's how it works: If the sum of the two one-digit numbers you select (playing any of the Pair play types) or four one-digit numbers is the same as the sum of the Daily 4 four numbers drawn, you win!

For example, let's say your selected Daily 4 numbers are 1-2-3-4, which equals 10.

With Sum It Up!, if the four numbers drawn also add up to 10 (whether they match your numbers or not), then you win. For example, if the numbers drawn are 2-2-1-5, they also equal 10, so you win Sum It Up!

Or let's take another example. Your numbers (you played the Front Pair) are: 9-9-X-X, which equals 18.

The four numbers drawn are 7-6-4-1, which also equals 18.

You win Sum It Up!

You don't have to win Daily 4 to win Sum It Up!, and Sum It Up! can be played with any of the play types.
