How to Play Pick 4

The Pennsylvania Pick 4 is known for some really great payouts for an investment of $1. You can win as much as $5,000 against some pretty good odds of 1 in 10,000. The Pick 4 drawings are held twice a day, which means you have increased chances of winning every day! To help boost your chances of winning, the lottery offers you various play types like Straight, Box, Straight/Box, and even Wild Ball to increase your chances and amounts of winning.

Playing Pennsylvania is quite exciting and equally easy! Each Pick 4 playslip contains five panels, so you have to pick four different or duplicate numbers for each panel from 0 to 9. For example 5467, 3333, 4449, 4000, etc. If your selected numbers match the winning numbers according to your bet type you bag the winning prizes. Or you can ask your lottery retailer for a Pick 4 Quick Pick to have your numbers randomly generated by the terminal.

After selecting your lottery numbers, you need to select the play type and wager ranging from $0.50 to $1, including Straight, Box, and Straight/Box, which ultimately determines the amount of your lottery prize. Pick 4 drawings are held twice a day approximately at 1:35 PM and 6:59 PM ET. The draws are held seven days a week, which means you have multiple chances to win the lottery.

Adding to your chances of winning, the Pennsylvania Pick 4 Lottery allows you to play your numbers any day in the future, within seven days of purchase, except the current draw. You just need to ask for Advance Play and you can play for any future draw.

The Wild Ball is drawn before the Pick games are drawn every day and evening. Adding Wild Ball to your lottery ticket will double the cost of any play type and the payouts may differ from the base gameplay.
