Pick 4

Pick 4 is the Virginia Lottery game offering a top prize of $5,000 to be won twice a day, seven days a week. Multiple play types, including Exact Order, Any Order, 50/50 and Combo, let you choose how to match your numbers to win a cash payout, and you can pick a $0.50 or $1 wager. The Day draw takes place at 1:59 PM ET, followed by the Night draw at 11:00 PM ET - play one, or play both. Get your tickets for the next draw before sales close at 1:53 PM and 10:45 PM respectively.


How to Play

Each Pick 4 play costs $0.50 or $1, and how much you wager determines the prizes you can win. Choose your own four digits from 0 to 9, or select Easy Pick and the lottery computer will take care of the selection.

There are a variety of play types to choose from, offering different ways for your numbers to make a winning match. Prizes and odds vary according to the play type and numbers you choose.

Select the Day draw at 1:59 PM ET, Night draw at 11:00 PM ET, or both.

For a convenient way to play future draws, select the Multi-Draw option to enter up to 91 draws in a row on a single ticket. If you have a special date in mind, a Future Draw ticket will let you play on the date of your choice - check Optional Plays and let the retailer know your chosen date. And if you want to play your favorite lucky numbers again, ask to Repeat your ticket.

Play Types

The four play types let you tailor your Pick 4 experience to keep things interesting. Try a new one each time you play and find your favorite:

  • Exact Order: To win, match all four numbers in the same order they're drawn. Wager $0.50 or $1.
  • Any Order*: To win, match all four numbers drawn in any order. Wager $0.50 or $1.
  • 50/50*: A $1 bet split between $0.50 on Exact Order and $0.50 on Any Order.
  • Combo*: A $1 Exact Order play that covers all potential combinations of four digits.

*Any Order, 50/50, and Combo plays may be 4-way, 6-way, 12-way or 24-way depending on how many potential winning combinations of your chosen digits there are. Combo plays cost more ($4, $6, $12 or $24 respectively) because the wager is for all possible combinations of a four-digit number.
