New Feature Enables Lottery Win When Number Is One Off



Have you ever bought a Lottery ticket and found you would have won, but one of your numbers was one digit off? Now you can win even if you are one number off with the Missouri Lottery’s new Pick 3 and Pick 4 wager type called “1-Off.” 

“When we heard about this play type, we immediately thought our players are going to love this,” said May Scheve Reardon, executive director of the Missouri Lottery. “Who hasn’t found themselves one number off?”

The 1-Off wager type costs $1, and it provides 27 chances to win on a single Pick 3 ticket and 81 chances to win on a single Pick 4 ticket. The new wager type is in addition to all the current wager types, such as straight, box or combo.

“We are also launching two promotions with the new play type, so players will have even more reasons to try it out,” Reardon said.

Through July 13, Bonus Cash vouchers worth $3, $6 and $9 will be produced randomly with minimum $1 single-ticket 1-Off Pick 3 or Pick 4 purchases for the current drawing.

On Wednesdays and Saturdays through July 13, the Lottery will offer a “Draw Day Free Play” promotion, in which players will receive a free $1 1-Off ticket when they make a $4 single-ticket Powerball purchase for the current drawing. On Wednesdays, players will get a free Pick 3 1-Off ticket, and on Saturdays, players will get a free Pick 4 1-Off ticket.
