How to Play Strike Lotto
When you’re ready to enter the draw, you can pick four numbers for your ticket and multiple lines. You can either add this to your lotto numbers on the ticket or as a standalone draw.
There are three options for picking numbers in the lotto: Dips, choosing your numbers each time, or saving your lucky numbers online. Our players-turned-experts recommend using Dips because they’re random like the draw.
You can also add the Powerball if you’re feeling extra lucky for the Wednesday and Saturday draws.
