Bet Types

You can choose from the following bet types in Daily 4. The bet type you pick, and your combination of numbers, determines your chances of winning and the prizes you can win.


For a Straight bet, you have to match all four of your numbers to the winning numbers in the exact order. For example, if you play the numbers 4321, you only win if the numbers 4, 3, 2, and 1 are drawn in that order.


With a Box wager, your chosen numbers can match those drawn in any order. Your bet is considered a 4-Way, 6-Way, 12-Way or 24-Way Box depending on how many possible combinations of your chosen numbers there are. If you play four different numbers, for example 1234, there are 24 possible combinations (1234, 1243, 1324, 1342, 1423, 1432, 2134, 2143, 2314, 2341, 2413, 2431, 3124, 3142, 3214, 3241, 3412, 3421, 4123, 4132, 4213, 4231, 4312, 4321).

If two of your numbers are the same and the others are unique, for example 1159, it is a 12-Way bet. If you play two sets of repeated numbers, for example 6677 or 9090, it is a 6-Way bet. A 4-Way bet is one where three of the four numbers are the same, such as 1110 or 8288.


For wheel bets, you place a $1.00 stake on every Straight bet combination of your four chosen numbers. A Wheel bet is considered a 4-Way, 6-Way, 12-Way or 24-Way bet depending on how many combinations of your chosen numbers are possible. For example, a Wheel bet on the numbers 1122 would be considered a 6-Way Wheel, as there are six possible combinations of those numbers. This bet would cost $6.00 in total, as you're betting $1.00 on each of the six different number combinations. A $1.00 24-Way Wheel would cost $24.00.

2-Way (Straight/Box)

With 2-Way bets, you place both a Straight bet and a Box bet on your chosen numbers. Your $1.00 stake is split in half for a 2-Way bet, with $0.50 going on the Straight bet and the other $0.50 going on the Box bet. The same Straight and Box bet rules as above apply for a 2-Way bet.


You win a 1-Off bet if your chosen numbers match those drawn in the exact order (the same as a Straight bet), or if one of your numbers is one up or one down from the numbers drawn. For example, if you chose the numbers 3456, you would win a 1-Off Straight bet if the numbers drawn were 3, 4, 5, and 6, in that order. You would win the 1-Off Up and Down bet if any of the numbers 2456, 4456, 3356, 3556, 3446, 3466, 3455, or 3457 are drawn, giving you eight additional winning combinations.

Red Ball Double Draws

You are sometimes given an extra chance to win Daily 4 prizes at no extra cost, when the Michigan Lottery runs special promotions. In March 2024, a second drawing was conducted after every drawing, featuring five white balls and one red ball.

Whenever a red ball was selected, it would mean that a second Daily 4 draw would take place. Your numbers would be entered into this draw and you would have another chance to win. If a white ball came out, there would be no bonus draw that night. However, the number of white balls in the machine would be reduced by one for the next draw. This would continue each night until the red ball was drawn, guaranteeing that there would be an extra draw at least once every six nights.

How to Claim a Daily 4 Prize

Players have up to one year after the date of the winning drawing to claim any prizes. After this period, unclaimed prizes will be distributed in accordance with state lottery regulations.

Prizes of $600 or less can be claimed at any authorized Michigan Lottery retailer. If you've won a larger prize, you can visit the Claims page for details on how to receive your winnings.
