Daily 4 Playstyles

Daily 4 has three playstyles: Straight, Box, or Straight/Box.

  • Straight: Your numbers need to match the winning numbers drawn in exactly the same order.
  • Box: Your numbers can match the winning numbers in ANY order.
  • Straight/Box: A combination of both playstyles. Your $1 play is split evenly between Straight and Box. If you match the winning numbers in the exact order drawn, you win about half the Straight prize and about half the Box prize. Match the numbers drawn in any other order, and you win about half the Box prize.

To win a Daily 4 prize, all the numbers you’ve picked must match all the numbers drawn. Each number is independent of the other three numbers. So, if the winning numbers are 1-1-2-3, you must have a one, another one, a two and a three in your chosen numbers to win.

Daily 4 Odds of Winning

In the table below are examples of the three playstyles, how you can win, and odds of winning.

Daily 4 FAQs

What are the odds of winning Daily 4? Each playstyle has its own odds of winning a prize. Straight play: 1 in 10,000; Box play: 1 in 417; Straight/Box: 1 in 417.

Are prizes taxed? Winnings over $599 are subject to taxes and other offsets. However, California does not charge state or local taxes.

How is the prize calculated on a Straight/Box wager? When you make a Straight/Box play, your $1 is split equally between each playstyle: Straight and Box. Therefore you have two ways to win. Straight: You can win by matching your four numbers in the exact order of the winning numbers. Box: You can also win if your four numbers match the four winning numbers in any order.

Example: If your numbers are 1-2-3-4 with a Straight/Box playstyle, and the winning numbers are also 1-2-3-4, you win both Straight and Box. If the Straight prize was $1,000 and the Box prize was $500, you would win half of each: $500 + $250 = a total prize of $750.

What this means is that you can win for both Straight and Box. If your numbers are 1-2-3 on a Straight/Box wager and the winning numbers are also 1-2-3 in that order, then you win both the Straight and the Box plays! The Straight and Box playstyles can each have a different prize amount. In the example above, you would win half the Straight prize and half the Box prize. If the Straight prize was $400 and the Box prize was $200, you would win half the Straight prize ($200), and half the Box prize ($100), so your winnings would total $300.

How do I choose my playstyle using a Quick Pick? Simply ask for a specific playstyle. If you don’t specify one, you will receive the Straight playstyle by default.

Is it better to play the most-common or least-common numbers? The pari-mutuel prize system used in California means the amount you can win is set by what numbers are played and the total number of players. Most players opt for the same popular numbers – for example, 9999. What does that mean? If 9999 is drawn, the prize would be divided between everyone who played 9999. However, if a player chose numbers that were less often played and those numbers won, the player would share the prize amount with fewer winners. So, try your luck with less commonly-played numbers – you just might win a bigger prize!

Who gets the money from Daily 4? For every $1 spent by players on Daily 4, $0.95 goes back to the community – distributed to CA public schools and colleges, player prizes and retailer compensation.

How long do I have to claim a prize? You have 180 days from the draw date to claim your winnings.

What happens if a prize is not claimed in time? If a jackpot is not claimed within 180 days of the draw date, the unclaimed prize funds are given to California public education.
