How to Play

Quick Draw

 
 
Step 1 
PICK UP A QUICK DRAW PLAYSLIP
Go to any New York Lottery Retailer, and pick up a playslip.
Step 2 
CHOOSE HOW MANY NUMBERS YOU WANT TO PLAY
It's easy! You simply choose how many spots (numbers) you want to play on a Quick Draw playslip.
Step 3 
PICK UP TO TEN NUMBERS
Then, pick up to ten numbers from the field of 1 through 80. Make sure you pick the same amount of numbers that you chose in Section 1. Or choose the Quick Pick option, and let the computer randomly select the numbers for you.
Step 4 
SELECT AN AMOUNT TO WAGER
Check off how much you wish to wager, per draw (game), then how many consecutive draws (games) you want to play, and hand your completed playslip to a Quick Draw retailer.
Step 5 
HAND YOUR PLAYSLIP TO A NEW YORK LOTTERY RETAILER
Hand your playslip to the retailer, and you'll receive your ticket.
Step 6 
CHECK TO SEE IF YOU'RE A WINNER
You win based on how many numbers you match. Check your ticket at any New York Lottery retailer or on our New York Lottery Winning Numbers app.
 
WHEN TO PLAY
Wherever you're having fun, you'll find Quick Draw - restaurants, bars, bowling centers, and other larger retailer locations. Drawings are held every 4 minutes. Terminals are open to accept wagers any time from 4:00 a.m. to 3:25 a.m. at nearly 8,000 licensed Quick Draw locations. In most cases, you're provided a place to sit while you watch the numbers drawn on a special monitor. A computer draws the numbers randomly.
 
GAME FEATURES
PLAY IT AGAIN
For your convenience, the Play It Again feature allows you to purchase an exact duplicate of a ticket you purchased within the last 30 days. Simply hand the retailer your ticket and ask to “Play It Again”. An identical ticket (same numbers, wager type and wager amount) for the next available draw will be produced. The cost of the “Play It Again” ticket is the same as your original ticket.
HOW TO PLAY "EXTRA"
Quick Draw “Extra” is a special feature that allows you to multiply your winnings by 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 or 10 times. The Extra number is picked at random after each draw. You must choose the Extra option when completing your Quick Draw play slip. Selecting the Extra option will double your wager.
PARTY PLAY
Party Play is a special feature that allows you to purchase an identical version of your ticket for your clerk or server. Your ticket and the Party Play ticket will be eligible for the next draw. The cost is $1, or $2 if you play Quick Draw “Extra”.
