How To Play At Retail

 Step 1:

Decide if you want to add Multiplier. Prizes could be multiplied up to 10 times.  Adding Multiplier will double the cost of your wager.

Step 2:

Choose how many numbers (spots) you want to play per
draw. Pick up to 10 numbers.

Step 3:

Select how much you want to wager for each draw: $1 - $5,
$10, or $20.

Step 4:

Decide how many consecutive draws you want to play,
from 1-12, 18, or 24.

Your ticket cost will equal the
cost of your wager times the number of consecutive draws.

Step 5:

Choose your numbers from 1 through 80 or select Quick Pick and let the computer randomly select numbers for you. The amount of numbers you choose must equal the total spots you chose to play.

The maximum wager amount on a ticket is $250.
