## How to Play California Lottery Daily Derby

Find a lottery retailer (a gas station, a convenience store, a food store, etc. which plays California Lottery) and grab a Daily Derby playslip. A playslip contains three different play areas, marked Play A through Play C. Each play area represents a different Daily Derby play. If you want to play only one game, fill out only the Play A panel. if you want to play 15, then get five playslips and fill all the panels, A to C of all of them. Each panel costs \$2.

Each play panel contains two sections. The upper section is for selecting the horses and the lower for the racing time. The upper section contains the list of horses and three colmns for the three positions. Mark the first, second, and third positions in the columns aligned with the horses of your choice. For example, if choose to play 1st: EUREKA(07), 2nd: MONEY BAGS(11), 3rd: LUCKY STAR(02), then, mark the first column aligned with 07, mark the second column aligned with 11, and mark the third column aligned with 02.

The lower setion contains three columns of the digits 0 to 9. The racing time range from 1:40:00 to 1:49:99. So, what you have to choose is the last three digits only (from 0.00 to 9.99).
