DOVER, DE - The Delaware Lottery introduced play slips for its popular PLAY 3 and PLAY 4 daily numbers games today.   The play slips are designed to make it easier than ever before to play all of the bet types available for PLAY 3 and PLAY 4.   Simple, easy to use instructions for playing these daily numbers games are printed on each play slip.  

The play slips also offer a convenient option for the more than 90 percent of people who play "their" number-a family birthday, address, or another special number-when they play these games.   Once a play slip is filled out, it can simply be handed to a Delaware Lottery Retailer for insertion into the online terminal, which reads the selected numbers and bet options automatically.   The same play slip can be used over and over again.

Delaware Lottery representatives will be conducting special promotions at Retailer locations from September 24 to October 28 displaying an "Easy asÖinstructional video" that demonstrates how easy it is to play the games.

Tickets for PLAY 3 and PLAY 4 cost $1 and are available at more than 400 Delaware Lottery Retailers throughout the state.  DAY drawings are held Monday through Saturday at 1:58 p.m.; NIGHT drawings are held seven days a week at 7:57 p.m.

Since the start of operations in 1975, the Delaware Lottery has contributed more than $1.1 billion to the state's General Fund to help finance needed state services that benefit everyone in Delaware. The Lottery offers a variety of games including POWERBALL®, All Cash Lotto, Rolldown®, PLAY 3 and PLAY 4, and assorted Instant Games.
