Dailies - Daily Play Lotto
Dailies are games that are for people who want to have better odds and play constantly. These games are usually drawn twice a day and six days a week. They may also be drawn once a day on Sundays depending on the state playing in.
These games are called Pick 3 and Pick 4. To play, you must choose a three or four-digit number from 000 to 999(9). Like the regular lotto, you must put your numbers on a pay slip and take it to the retailer in order to get a play ticket.
There are several types of play in these games ranging from "exact order" (straight), "any order" (box), "exact/any" (straight/box) or a combination of all of them. The cost is based on what type of play you want to do.
- Any order means if any of your numbers are drawn, it doesn't matter in what order they appear - you win.
- If you choose exact/any play and your numbers are in the exact order drawn, then you will win the prize for exact play plus the any order play. However, if you pick the correct numbers but they are not in the exact order, you will still win, but a smaller amount.
- Combination play covers all bets. It gives you all the possible exact combinations of the numbers you pick on one ticket. This is often the best way to go.
Dailies have a fixed price amount, unlike Lotto and are generally not determined by the amount of players. Odds are lower in Dailies as the games rely on a different set of mathematics than regular Lotto.
