July 10, 2013 – Two quarters is now all it takes to play the Daily 3 and Daily 4 games from the Hoosier Lottery. Monday, the Lottery began selling tickets for the two games at fifty cents, one of the lowest price points for any lottery game.
And on top of the added fifty cent wager, there are new ways to win with Daily 3 and Daily 4. Players can also wager in $1 increments up to $10 on each wager ticket.
The first of the new ways to win with Daily 3 and Daily 4 is called the wheel wager, which allows players the chance to win on any possible combination of the numbers they choose.
For each set of three numbers, players have six ways to win, because there are six possible ways to order the three numbers.
On Daily 4, you’ll have a total of 24 different combinations of your chosen numbers – that’s a lot of ways to win!
You can bet as little as – you guessed it – fifty cents on each combination for a wheel wager, and the total cost of your ticket will be the number of different combinations (6 for Daily 3 and 24 for Daily 4), multiplied by your wager amount.
Front and Back play is the second of the two new ways the Hoosier Lottery is helping players win.
Starting again at a fifty cent wager, choosing the Front and Back play means you’ll win if you match the pair of numbers at either the front or the back of the number combination you choose.
For Daily 3, you’ll win if you match the first two numbers, but not the third, and you can also win if you match the second and third numbers, but not the first.
The same goes for Daily 4, where matching the first and second numbers or the third and fourth numbers will make you a winner.
So start digging for change, because with the Hoosier Lottery’s new fifty cent wagers, it only takes two quarters to win.
