How to Play Play4

The Connecticut Play4 Lottery runs its draws twice daily with a jackpot of up to $25,000 for each draw. The increased number of drawings, in turn, works on increasing your chances of winning. With a mindful selection of four numbers, you can transform the odds in your favor and win prizes from $104 up to $25,000 every day and night. Play4 provides you with different wagers along with add on options of “Advance Action” and REPLAY to increase your chances of winning with multiple drawings over the same playslip.

Playing Play4 is quite exciting and highly rewarding. You have to select 4 duplicate or different numbers for a single play from 0 to 9. For example, 5789, 0055, 6669, etc. If your selected Play4 numbers match the winning numbers according to your bet type, you snag the winning prizes. Or you can also ask your lottery retailer for a Quick Pick, to let the terminal randomly generate your lottery numbers.

The Connecticut Play4 is played in $.50 increments, beginning from $.50 up to $5.00 per wager, according to the bet type you select. The Play4 drawings are held at 1:57 p.m. for the Day draw and 10:29 p.m. for the Night draw. The draws for the game are held twice all seven days a week, which means you have multiple chances to win every day with each game.

The Connecticut Play4 also offers you to play up to 7 consecutive drawings in advance by marking the “Advance Action” box for both or either of the drawings, i,e, Day, and Night.
