Hot Numbers

The South Carolina Pick 4 is highly popular and is widely played among the state. The drawings for the game are held twice each day, thereby increasing your chances of winning. You can win as much as $5000 by just selecting four numbers from a pool of 0 to 9 along with an appropriate wager and play type which actually determines your Pick 4 winnings. The lottery lets you have a chance to play your numbers any day in the future, except for the current draw. You just need to ask your lottery retailer for an Advance Play and you can play any day in the future.

Not limiting your chances of winning, the South Carolina Lottery provides you with the chance of playing your lottery numbers for up to 28 consecutive draws, by just marking the appropriate box under “Number of Multi-Draws”.

The table below depicts the different ways you can play Pick 4 and how it affects your odds and prize payout potential.
