How to Play Win 4 Midday:

Count the number of keys on your key chain. Try the number on your laundry ticket. Or get a Quick Pick ticket and let the computer randomly choose the numbers for you. No matter how you select your numbers, you can win more with Win 4.

 

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.

Or use a playcard. Each playcard has 4 games. You may play 1, 2, 3, or 4 games.

Select four digits (numbers) in each game you want to play.

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.

For each game played, select an amount to wager: 50¢ or $1.00. Note: straight/box must select 50¢ wager amount for total cost of $1.00 (50¢ for straight/50¢ for box).

If you want to play more than one ticket per game panel, select the number of tickets. Don't forget to tell the retailer Midday or Evening drawing. For a single play, no mark is required. You can play up to 10 tickets per game panel.

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 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.

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 partial quick picks are allowed.

Present your completed playcard to any New York Lottery retailer for processing. And good luck!
