How to play PA Lottery Big 4?
Playing PA Lottery Big 4 is quite simple – go to the nearest PA lottery operator and buy a PA Lottery Big 4 playslip. You can either choose your own numbers, or opt for the Quickpick option, and let the computer randomly select them for you. After you have decided which numbers you want to go with, you need to choose your play type such as:
- Straight – 4 digits in exact order; the prize is up to $25,000 on $5 bet
- Box – 4 digits in any order (3 of them must be the same, only 1 is different); the prize is up to $6,000 on $5 bet
The box type has different forms (besides the one that is mentioned above); Box 2 pairs, Box 1 pair plus 2 digits and Box 4 different digits. The only thing that’s common between them is the wager as you can select from $0.50 to $5 bet to every kind, while chances of winning, prize, and number combination that is required, vary a lot.
