Terminology
Sometimes game information can be confusing. We created a brief overview of some of the common terms used in Carolina Pick 4 that you should be familiar.
Quick Pick (QP)
A random set of playing numbers chosen by a lottery terminal. Players may choose to have the lottery terminal pick their playing numbers instead of choosing numbers on their own.
Multi-Draw
Multi-draw is playing the same set of numbers on consecutive drawings. While filling out a play slip, a player may choose to play the same set of numbers for up to 7 consecutive day or evening drawings for the Carolina Pick 4.
Exact Order
Your numbers have to match the numbers drawn in the exact order they are listed on your ticket. Prize amounts for this play type are $2,500 or $5,000.
Any Order
The numbers on your ticket must match the numbers drawn, but the order of the numbers doesn't matter. Prize amounts for this play type range from $100 to $1,200.
50/50 Play
This play combines $0.50 Exact Order and $0.50 Any Order plays, so that you win either way your numbers are drawn. If you match exactly, you win both the Exact Order and Any Order prizes. (This play can only be purchased for $1.00.) Prize amounts for this play type range from $100 to $3,100.
Combo Play
A COMBO play is an Exact Order play for every possible combination of the numbers you selected on one ticket. Prize amounts for this play type are $2,500 or $5,000.
Front/Back Pairs
For Front Pair the selected pair of numbers (first two numbers) must match the first two numbers drawn in exact order. For Back Pair the selected pair of numbers (last two numbers) must match the last two numbers drawn in exact order. Prize amounts for Front Pair & Back Pair are $25 for a $.50 play or $50 for a $1.00 play.
1 Off Play
You win a prize if one or more of the numbers you selected are 1-OFF the numbers drawn in exact order. Select 1-OFF for Pick 4 for 80 chances to win. All possible winning number combinations will be printed on the ticket. 1-OFF plays with selected numbers matching all numbers drawn do not win a prize. Prize amounts for 1-OFF range from $13 to $300 depending on the play amount
Sum It Up
Add SUM IT UP to your Pick 4 ticket and if the sum of the numbers you selected match the sum of the numbers drawn you win. SUM IT UP is not available for Front Pair/Back Pair. The cost for SUM IT UP equals the base cost of the ticket. Prize amounts for SUM IT UP range from $4 -$2,500 for a $0.50 play and $8 - $5,000 for a $1 play.
