How to play Wild Card2
Just like any multi-number game, Wild Card2 is a very easy game to play. Two sample panels, labeled as Play A and Play B, from
a Wild Card2 playslip are shown here; the actual playslip contains 5 panels.
Each panel contains two plays and coss $1, and each play area contains numbers 1 to 31 and the four card letters as well as the
faces. Select 5 numbers from 1 through 31, one of the card letters, and one of the signs. So, if mark 'K' and the 'Heart' you have
King of Hearts. Do the same on the lower area since you need to play two for a buck.
Alternatively, you can mark the Quick Pick (QP) (Easy Pick (EP) in some states) to let the Lottery terminal randomly select your
numbers for you. If you want to spend more, then fill out panels B, C, etc.
If you make an error, DO NOT ERASE, instead mark the Void box for that play.
The possible card faces are: Jack of Diamonds(JD), Jack of Clubs(JC), Jack of Hearts(JH), Jack of Spades(JS), Queen of Diamonds(QD),
Queen of Clubs(QC), Queen of Hearts(QH), Queen of Spades(QS), King of Diamonds(KD), King of Clubs(KC), King of Hearts(KH),
King of Spades(KS), Ace of Diamonds (AD), Ace of Clubs (AC), Ace of Hearts(AH), Ace of Spades(AS).
A typical winning number is reported as,
8-15-17-18-27 WC JC, or as 8-15-17-18-27**JC
Since the order in which the numbers
are drawn doesn't matter, the winning numbers are reported in their natural order from smallest to highest.

Note also that the odds listed are odds per play. On the other hand, the odds listed at the Wild Card2 oficial web site as
well as state sites are half the values listed above. Their reason seems to be - since the player is getting 2 plays per dollar,
the odds should be proportionally halved.
