    Pick-6 play slip
    1. 1Each Pick-6 play costs $1.00 each.
    2. 2Pick six(6) numbers between 1-49.
    3. 3If you'd rather have the Lottery computer randomly select your numbers for you, ask your Retailer for a "Quick Pick." Or if you're using a play slip, mark the Quick Pick circle.
    4. 4Select how you want to be paid if you win - either Cash Option (the value of the advertised estimated jackpot amount in a lump sum) or Annuity.
    5. 5XTRA (optional): Mark the circle to add XTRA for an additional $1 per play, to increase non-jackpot Pick-6 prizes. If you match three or more of the Pick-6 numbers drawn, your Pick-6 prize, excluding the Jackpot, will be multiplied by the XTRA number. If you match only two numbers, you win a $2 prize!
    6. 6Multi Draw (optional): To play the same numbers for up to 26 consecutive drawings, mark the number of drawings you want, if more than one.
    7. 7Give your play slip to your retailer. All sales are final.
