Playing WESTERN 649 by Quick Pick or Selection Slip

  1.

  2. Ask for a WESTERN 649 Quick Pick or select six numbers from a field of 1 to 49 on the slip. You can play up to six WESTERN 6/49 plays on one ticket.
  3. Add EXTRA for an additional $1 per number*. You can add up to six EXTRA (one per each WESTERN 649 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.
