How to Play

It Could Happen ®



 

JUST ONE 4 DIGIT NUMBER. 15 DIFFERENT PLAY TYPES!

Step 1 
GO TO ANY NEW YORK LOTTERY RETAILER
Go to your New York Lottery retailer and tell the retailer your four lucky numbers and that you want to play Win-4. Be sure to tell him the drawing you want to play: Midday and/or Evening. If you do not, the Lottery terminal will automatically pick the next available drawing. It's as easy as that.
Step 2 
PICK UP A PLAYCARD
Or use a playcard. Each playcard has 4 games. You may play 1, 2, 3, or 4 games.
Step 3 
SELECT YOUR FOUR DIGITS
Select four digits (numbers) in each game you want to play.
Step 4 
SELECT A WAGER TYPE
For each game played, select a wager type: straight, box, straight/box, or combination. Ask your retailer for a Win-4 brochure for an explanation of wager types or go to our Chances of Winning section for more details.
Step 5 
SELECT A WAGER AMOUNT
For each game played, select an amount to wager: 50¢ or $1.00. Note: straight/box wagers are $1.00 (50¢ for straight/50¢ for box).
Step 6 
SELECT MIDDAY AND/OR EVENING
You can play up to ten tickets per game panel. If you want to play more than one ticket per game panel, select the number of tickets desired. For a single play, no mark is required. Don't forget to tell the retailer Midday or Evening drawing.
Step 7 
PLAY FOR MORE THAN ONE DAY
If you want to play for more than one day, select a number of days and tell your Lottery retailer if you want to play Midday only, Evening only or both daily draws each day of advance play. You will receive one ticket for Midday drawings and a separate ticket for Evening drawings. Each ticket will be clearly marked "Midday" or "Evening." 

USE QUICK PICK
If you can't think of four numbers, just mark the Quick Pick option to have the computer randomly select all of your numbers for you. No parital quick picks are allowed.
HAND PLAYCARD INTO RETAILER
Present your completed playcard to any New York Lottery retailer for processing. And good luck!
