Beginning March 19, Daily 3 and Daily 4 players whose numbers match the drawn numbers in reverse order – “straight back” – will win a bonus prize. Daily 3 players will win $100 on a $1 Straight wager and $50 on a 50 cent Straight wager, and Daily 4 players will win $1,000 on a Straight wager. For example, if a Daily 3 player picks 1-2-3 and the numbers drawn are 3-2-1, the player wins $100. If a Daily 4 player picks 1-2-3-4 and the numbers drawn are 4-3-2-1, the player wins $1,000! Boxed bets, 1-Off, and 2-Way bets aren’t eligible for the bonus prize, and Wheel-Bet winners will be paid only the straight prize. Players will be paid only for the largest prize won on a ticket.
Straight Back Bonus starts Monday and runs for a limited time.
There are five ways to play the Daily 3 and Daily 4 games: Straight, Boxed, Two-Way, 1-Off, 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. Daily 3 wagers cost 50 cents or $1. Each Daily 4 play costs $1. There are two Daily 3 and Daily 4 drawings a day, seven days a week, at 12:59 p.m. and 7:29 p.m.
