Play it Your Way, Any Day!
NSWPools is a daily game that pays a top prize of million Dollar. Play it Straight or Combo for bigger prizes. To increase your chances of winning, try a Box, Straight/Box, 1-OFF® or Pairs play. You can play it EveryDay and win!

To play, pick up a playslip at an authorized NSWPools retailer. Each playslip contains five panels (A-E). In each panel played:

Select one number (from 0 through 9) from each column for a total of four digits, or mark the QP (Quick Pick) box and let the terminal randomly select some or all of your numbers. For a Front Pair play, select numbers from the first two columns only; for a Mid Pair play, select numbers from the middle two columns only; and, for a Back Pair play, select numbers from the last two columns only.

Select the play type: Straight, Box, Straight/Box, Combo, 1-OFF, Front Pair, Mid Pair or Back Pair.
Select the amount you want to play: 50 cents or $1 (all Straight/Box and 1-OFF plays cost $1; Combo plays cost $2 to $24).

To Advance Play the same numbers and play types up to 14 consecutive days for the selected draw time(s), simply mark the number in the "Days" section on your playslip.
Give your completed playslip and payment to the retailer. You will receive a ticket for each set of selected numbers and draw date(s). Please check your ticket(s) before you leave the store. You are responsible for the accuracy of your ticket(s).

Check the official drawing results to see if you're a winner! Draw results are available on this website, at authorized NSWPools retailers and by calling 333 665. You may also watch the drawings online.

If you claim a prize on a winning Advance Play ticket before all of the drawings on the ticket have occurred, you will be issued a continuation ticket for the remaining draws with the same play numbers and play types as the original ticket.
