CA Daily 4 FAQs
Your $1 Straight/Box wager is divided equally between Straight and Box playstyles. You can win by matching your 4 numbers in an exact order (Straight wager), or matching all 4 winning numbers in any order (Box wager).
For example, if you play 1-2-3-4 for Straight/Box and those numbers win, you’ll win both wagers. If the Straight prize is $1,500 and the Box prize is $600, you’ll win half the Straight prize – $750, plus half the Box prize – $300, for a total of $1,050.
An Automated Draw Machine, a state-of-the-art computer, draws the winning numbers.
You’ll find Daily 4 at all Lottery retailers. Draws take place every day, and your entry must be made before 6:30 p.m. to be eligible for that day’s draw.
An Automated Draw Machine is a computer that isn’t connected to any other system. In fact, any type of tampering is impossible because the hard drive can’t be opened without breaking a numbered security seal and the programs that generate random numbers can’t be altered.
The Lottery has 2 Automated Draw Machines for daily draws, plus a back-up machine in case there’s an emergency. A randomized, unpredictable draw chooses which machine, and which randomized drawing method (mathematical algorithm or Random Number Generator) will be used. The numbers selected from either method are unpredictable and selected in an unbiased manner.
Collect your prize of up to $599 at any participating Lottery retail location. Collect prizes over $599 at any Lottery District Office or by mail.
