Virginia Pick 4 Overview

Virginia Pick 4 offers the chance to win prizes of up to $5,000 by matching four numbers from 0 to 9. You are required to pick four numbers from 0 to 9 and select your play type. You can also choose your play amount for most types - either $0.50 or $1. The different play types are as follows:

  • Exact Order: Predict the order of the four winning numbers. If it's not exactly right, you do not win. For example, if you select 1, 2, 3, 4, and the numbers are drawn as 1, 4, 2, 3, you lose.
  • Any Order: Select which numbers you think will be drawn. You need to get them all right to win, but the order is irrelevant. For example, if you select 1, 2, 3, 4, and the numbers are drawn as 1, 4, 2, 3, you win.
  • 50/50: This splits your play between Exact Order and Any Order. If the numbers are drawn in the order you predict, you win both parts of the prize. If they all appear, but not in those exact positions, you just win the Any Order portion of the prize.
  • Combo: Pick four numbers, and every possible combination of those digits will be entered as separate Exact Order plays.

All prizes are fixed amounts. The larger amounts are available for those play types where it is less likely to win. Another option in Pick 4 is Fireball, which doubles the cost of a play but considerably improves the chances of winning.

Pick 4 History

Pick 4 began in Virginia in September 1991, following hot on the heels of Pick 3 and Lotto which had launched in the previous two years. Fireball was introduced in May 2021 to give players even more ways to win.

How to Claim a Prize

All Virginia Lottery prizes must be claimed within 180 days of the winning draw date. Here's how to receive prizes for Pick 4, depending on the value of your win.

Up to $600

Winnings up to $600 can be claimed from Virginia Lottery retailers, although they may have to pay you with a check or money order if they do not have sufficient cash in store for security reasons. You can also take your ticket to a claim center, or mail it in to the Virginia Lottery. If the prize is worth more than $100, you'll need to provide your Social Security number and valid photo ID. If you are mailing in a winning ticket, make sure to sign the back of it, keep a copy of both sides for your own records, and use registered mail. You should mail winning tickets to the following address:

Virginia Lottery Claims
P.O. Box 1254,
Richmond, VA 23218-1254

Over $600

If you win more than $600, you won't be able to cash in your ticket at a retailer, but you can still claim by mail. You can also visit one of the Virginia Lottery's claim centers, which are located in Richmond, Harrisonburg, Hampton, Abingdon, Roanoke, Woodbridge and Farmville.
