How to Play

Daily Numbers



 
JUST ONE 3 DIGIT NUMBER. 9 DIFFERENT PLAY TYPES.
Step 1 
CREATE YOUR 3-DIGIT NUMBER
Go to your New York Lottery retailer, and tell him your three lucky numbers and that you want to play New York Daily Numbers. 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 
USING A NUMBERS CARD, CREATE YOUR 3-DIGIT NUMBER
Or use a playcard. Each playcard has 4 games. You may play 1, 2, 3, or 4 games.
Step 3 
USING A NUMBERS CARD, CREATE YOUR 3-DIGIT NUMBER
Select three digits (numbers) in each game you want
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 Numbers brochure for an explanation of wager types or go to our Odds section for more details.
Step 5 
SELECT AN AMOUNT TO WAGER
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 THE NUMBER OF TICKETS
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 
SELECT THE NUMBER OF DAYS
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".
Step 8 
USE A BLUE OR BLACK PEN OR PENCIL AND DO NOT ERASE
Use only blue or black pen or pencil for marking. Red ink will not be accepted. Mark your selections with heavy vertical marks. DO NOT ERASE. If you make a mistake, mark the VOID box for that game and move to the next game.
 
QUICK PICK OPTION
If you can't think of three numbers, just mark the Quick Pick option to have the computer randomly select all of your numbers for you. No partial quick picks are allowed.
 
GIVE YOUR PLAYCARD TO THE RETAILER
Present your completed playcard to any New York Lottery retailer for processing. And good luck!
