Game Introduction

4D is the most popular lottery draw game in Malaysia and Singapore. The 4D lottery draw is a game of chance consisting of 10,000 different four-digit numbers ranging from 0000 to 9999. The idea of the 4D lottery draw is very simple — You win the draw if the choices of your four-digit numbers appear in the 4D results.

Game Features

Although the objectives of 4D lottery draw games are pretty simple to understand, there are a few features that you might want to know more about:

Standard Bet

Any standard 4D lottery draw game shares a very common feature. All you have to do is to choose your lucky or favorite number(s) from 0000 to 9999. Then, you may choose to bet the number on “big” or “small” and patiently wait for the 4D results to be announced — just as simple as that!

  • Big Bet

You will have a higher winning chance when you are betting your numbers on “Big” as there are 23 winning numbers to match. For example, 1st Prize, 2nd Prize, 3rd Prize, 10 Starter Prizes, and 10 Consolation Prizes.

  • Small Bet

If you place your number on the “Small” bet, you win a prize only if your 4D number appears in the top three prize categories. However, it offers greater rewards than the “Big bet” as it has lower chances of winning.

You can place a Big or Small bet, or both together, from these two bet types.

Since the number of combinations has increased, it can be more difficult to win but it can be very exciting due to its lucrative prizes.
