Sadly, Oklahoma lottery players no longer have a Pick 4 game to play.  The last drawing of Pick 4 was Sunday, Sept. 14.

Text from a press release issued on Sept. 6:

Pick 4 Game to End

The Oklahoma Lottery also reminds players that the last day of sales for the Pick 4 game will be Sept. 14 with the final drawing being held that night.

The move to end the Pick 4 game was approved by the Oklahoma Lottery Board of Trustees in their June meeting.

"The Pick 4 game was launched in July of 2011 and it has underperformed since that time," said Redburn. "This puts the Lottery at a liability for payouts and with the mandated 35 percent profit requirement, the Lottery is not in a position to risk earnings for our education beneficiaries."

"Ending the Pick 4 game will allow the Lottery to make room for additional games that will be better accepted by our players, such as the National Millionaire Raffle. We are also working on the addition of a poker themed game that should launch around the start of 2014."

Along with ending the Pick 4 game, the Super Multi-Pick and the Daily Multi-Pick purchase options will no longer be offered.
