How to Play the Massachusetts Numbers Game Lottery

The Massachusetts Lottery’s Numbers Game has draws twice a day (midday and evening). Prize amounts vary depending on the overall number of bets placed and the number of winners for each prize tier.

  • Exact: Your chosen 3 or 4 digits must match the winning numbers in the exact order.
  • Any: You can match the winning numbers in any order. Available for 3 and 4 digit bets.
