Pick-4 Green Ball Double Draw

Available September 1-14, 2014

When the Green Ball pops up, you get a second chance to win!

Immediately following each Pick-4 drawing during the promotion, an additional drawing will occur from a hopper including several white balls and one Green Ball. If the Green Ball is drawn, an additional set of Pick-4 winning numbers will be selected for either that midday or evening drawing. If your selected numbers for that midday or evening drawing match either of the two sets of winning Pick-4 numbers, you win the prize associated with that tier listed in the Pick-4 prize chart (click on the "Odds and Prizes" tab above).

If a white ball is drawn, it will be removed from the pool of balls in the hopper. The Green Ball drawing will carryover from midday to evening to midday, etc. For example, if during the midday drawing a white ball is selected, the Green Ball drawing that evening will occur from the one Green Ball and one less white ball. With each midday and evening drawing, a white ball will be removed until the Green Ball is drawn, at which point all balls will be placed back into the hopper for the following drawing.

For more information, see the Pick-4 Green Ball Double Draw Rules.
