Hot Numbers

Pick 4 of the Virginia Lottery is drawn twice a day. The Jackpot amount starts at $5000, but how much you win depends on your chosen playstyle and your wager amount. You win the jackpot when your ticket matches the winning draw numbers in exact order. The different playstyles include Exact Order, Any Order, 50/50, Combo, Pairs.


Adding FIREBALL to your ticket gives you the chance of winning additional lottery prizes. After each Pick 4 drawing, the FIREBALL numbers are drawn from a field of 0 to 9. Marking FIREBALL on your ticket improves your possibility of winning a prize. These winning amounts are additional or separate from your Pick 4 winnings.
