The New York Pick 4 is a daily lottery game offered by the New York Lottery. Here’s some basic information about it:
- How to Play:
- In the New York Pick 4 Lottery, you select a four-digit number from 0000 to 9999. You can choose your own numbers or use Quick Pick for a random selection.
- You can play for different bet types, including Straight, Box, Straight/Box, or Combo. Each of these bet types has different rules and potential prizes.
- Drawing Schedule:
- The New York Pick 4 Lottery has two drawings every day: one midday drawing and one evening drawing.
- Bet Types:
- Straight: Your chosen number must match the drawn number in the exact order to win. This bet type offers the highest payout.
- Box: Your selected numbers can match the drawn number in any order. This gives you a better chance of winning but offers a lower payout compared to the Straight bet.
- Straight/Box: This combines both Straight and Box bets. You can win either way, but the payout is less than a Straight bet.
- Combo: This covers all possible combinations of your chosen number, giving you multiple chances to win. However, it’s more expensive to play.
- The prize amounts vary depending on the bet type and the wager amount. Straight bets typically offer the largest prizes, while Box and Combo bets offer smaller prizes.
- Wager Amounts:
- You can choose how much you want to wager, and the prize amounts are based on your chosen wager. Different wager amounts are available, allowing you to tailor your risk and potential reward.
- Claiming Prizes:
- If you win a prize in the New York Pick 4 Lottery, you have a set period of time to claim your winnings. This period varies depending on the prize amount and can be found on the official New York Lottery website.
