Texas Lottery to add new Fireball feature to Pick 3 and Daily 4

Texas LotteryTexas Lottery: Texas Lottery to add new Fireball feature to Pick 3 and Daily 4Rating:

Replaces Sum It Up feature

Texas Lottery players will soon have more chances to win when they play Pick 3 and Daily 4 by purchasing Fireball, a new add-on feature for both daily draw games.

Fireball will replace the Sum It Up! feature starting Sunday, April 28. The first drawings for Pick 3 plus Fireball and Daily 4 plus Fireball will be Monday, April 29.

"We are excited to refresh Pick 3 and Daily 4 with the launch of the Fireball add-on feature," said Gary Grief, executive director of the Texas Lottery. "Fireball will give our players more opportunities to create winning combinations and increase their chances of winning a prize. Pick 3 is one of our longest-running draw games and Daily 4 set a sales record last fiscal year. By introducing Fireball, we anticipate player interest for both games will grow, generating higher sales, which most importantly leads to more revenue for Texas education."

Following each Pick 3 and Daily 4 base game drawing, the Pick 3 Fireball and Daily 4 Fireball numbers will be drawn separately from a set of 10 balls (0-9). To create Fireball prizewinning combinations, the Pick 3 Fireball number can be used to replace any one of the three drawn Pick 3 winning numbers, and the Daily 4 Fireball number can replace any one of the four drawn Daily 4 winning numbers.

If a player's selected numbers match any of the Fireball prizewinning combinations, the player can win a prize based on their selected Play Type and wager amount, in addition to any base game winnings. Players can also win Fireball prize(s) without winning in the base game.

The full payout charts can be found in PDF file format:

Players must select the Fireball option at the time of purchasing a Pick 3 or Daily 4 base game ticket. The cost of the board(s) doubles where the Fireball option is chosen. Pick 3 and Daily 4 players will need to use new Pick 3 plus Fireball and Daily 4 plus Fireball playslips. Players should be advised that the current Pick 3 and Daily 4 playslips will no longer be accepted after the Night drawing on April 27.

Pick 3 and Daily 4 drawings take place four times a day, six days a week (Monday-Saturday) at 10 a.m., 12:27 p.m., 6 p.m. and 10:12 p.m. CT. A live webcast and results of all Texas Lottery drawings are available at txlottery.org.

All Texas lottery results are published right after each drawing at Lottery Post's Texas Lottery Results page.

    Good Luck to all Texans who play. 

    I prefer MM & PB instead of scratchers.

     I recall Richard Lustig "May he RIP" saying to buy from one roll only.

      LOL.

      I'm afraid not. I don't play "small potatoes games".

      I used to play P3 and Daily 4, but focus on "life changing" games now.

      CAN'T WIN IF YOU'RE NOT IN

          Ilinois has had this for awhile, no big del.

          Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any. So many systems, so many theories, so few jackpot winners. 

          Lep

          There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

            When Illinois started their version of Fireball, I always believed it was better than adding a box bet.

            One of these days, the Texas Lottery is going to add all possible pick-3 and pick-4 wagers; any digit, any digit in any order, sum, etc. The payoffs will be proportional to the odds with the lottery's 50% take.

              Go to TX lottery website.  Click on how to play on either Pick 3 or Pick 4.  Follow down until you see the combinations.  They are exactly the same as KY, but if you want str/box it says for a little more money you can do this.  KY it is usually a $1 depending on wager.  So it is already there.

                I was thinking more of extra bet features like "sum it up". The Texas Lottery replaced "sum it up" with "fireball", but why not offer players both?

                  The biggest improvement you'll ever make in the odds of winning is buying a lottery ticket. With just one ticket the odds go from IMPOSSIBLE to IMPROBABLE!

                          Finally found it on page 3 of Pick 3 Prediction forum. The Illinois lottery changed their Fireball feature because of the magic pairs.
