What is the Pick 4 NC Drawing?

NC Pick 4 is a draw game where you try to pick four numbers between 0 and 9 that match the winning numbers drawn to win a cash prize.  You can also select Quick Pick and the random number generator will choose the numbers for you.  North Carolina Pick 4 has both a day and evening game.

You are able to select the amount you want to play, either 50 cents or $1.  Pick 4 drawings are held seven days a week.  All North Carolina Education Lottery results are available immediately after each drawing.

Add Sum It Up to your play for more chances to win.  Adding Sum It Up doubles the price of your base play ticket.

How do I Play North Carolina’s Pick 4 Draw?

  1. PICK YOUR NUMBERS:

    Ask for a Quick Pick and let the lottery terminal select the numbers for you, or choose four numbers between 0 and 9.

  2. BUY YOUR TICKET:

  3. PLAY MULTIPLE DRAWINGS:

    You can play your numbers for up to 7 consecutive drawing dates on the same ticket. Just tell the cashier at the time of your purchase or mark the Multi Play box on your selection slip.

  4. ADD SUM IT UP:

    Adding Sum It Up is an option that will double the price of your play ticket.  The sum of your played numbers must match the sum of the drawn numbers to win.  You do not have to match the Pick 4 numbers to win the Sum It Up.
