Through the midday Daily 4 drawing on Friday, 500 lucky ticket holders had won $1,000 apiece through the Straight Back Bonus promotion. The Straight Back Bonus promotion automatically is added to all straight-bet tickets at no additional cost to players.
The promotion, which runs through Thursday, pays Daily 4 players whose numbers match the drawn numbers in reverse order. For example, if a player picks 8-9-6-1 and the numbers drawn are 1-6-9-8, the player wins $1,000! Boxed bets and 2-way bets aren’t eligible for the bonus prize, and wheel-bet winners are paid only the straight prize.
There are four ways to play the Daily 4: straight, boxed, two-way and wheeled. Prize amounts vary based on the way a number is played, and on the order in which the winning numbers are drawn. Players may select a four-digit number, or choose an easy pick ticket. There are two Daily 4 drawings a day, seven days a week, at 12:59 p.m. and 7:29 p.m. Each play is $1.
