Playing WESTERN MAX by Quick Pick or Selection Slip

  1. You can play WESTERN MAX by Quick Pick where the Ticket Terminal will randomly choose your selections, or pick your own numbers using a Selection Slip.  You can also choose Play Both to receive the same selections on WESTERN MAX and LOTTO MAX.  Refer to the Play Both box below for more information.
  2. Ask for a WESTERN MAX Quick Pick or select seven numbers from a field of 1 to 49 on the slip.  For each $2 WESTERN MAX purchase, you will also receive two additional Quick Picks.  You can purchase up to five WESTERN MAX on one ticket.
  3. Add EXTRA for an additional $1 per number*. You can add up to five EXTRA (one per each WESTERN MAX purchase) by specifying it with your Quick Pick request or by marking “Yes” under each board played.
  4. Play 1-25 draws. Tell the retailer how many draws or mark the number on the slip. For a number not shown on the slip, leave it blank, and the retailer can enter any number from 1-25. Learn about Advance Play.

*The EXTRA number(s) is valid for the same draw date(s) as the host game listed at the top of your ticket.

Fact: Each draw is an independent event, and all numbers have the same chance of being selected for every draw.
