## How to Play Wisconsin Pick 4 Lottery

From a Wisconsin Lottery retailer (a gas station, a convenience store, a food store, etc. which plays WI Lottery) get a Pick 4 playslip. A playslip contains five different play areas. Each play area represents a different Pick 4 play. If you want to play only one number, fill out only the first panel; if you want to play 10 numbers, then get two playslips and fill all the panels of both of them.

Each play panel contains four columns of the digits 0 to 9. Mark the first digit of your number on the first column, the second digit on the second column, the third digit on the third column, and the fourth digit on the fourth column. So, if you want to play 8142, then 8 will be marked in the first column, 1 in the second column, 4 in the third column, and 2 in the fourth column. Next select and mark the amount (50 cents or \$1), then select the type of play - Straight or Box.

Next, present the completed playslip to the lottery retailer to receive your printed ticket. Check your ticket immediately to ensure that the numbers, dates, and play type match your request.
