How does the Wild Ball work in Missouri Pick 4?
Wild Ball replaces any of the winning Pick 4 numbers to generate additional winning combinations. The Wild Ball is drawn immediately following each Pick 4 draw.
It is possible to win multiple Wild Ball prizes during each prize draw.
Example
Select 2223, for example, as your Pick 4 numbers.
Next, choose a $1 BOX option and the Wild Ball.
In this example the winning numbers are 2222, but the Wild Ball is 3.
Because the Wild Ball can replace any of the 2222 numbers, possible combinations could be:
 3222
 2322
 2232
 2223
This would pay out four Wild Ball combinations at $380 each, for an accumulated Wild Ball win of $1520 ($380 x 4).

Interesting Facts
Pick 3 and Pick 4 have betting restrictions known as Liability Limits.
A Liability Limit stops too many players from choosing the same numbers, which could cause payout problems for the Missouri Lottery if there are too many identical selections.
For example:
With an upper payout limit of $1.5 million  if multiplied by thousands of exactsame bets  this would break the bank and make it impossible to pay.
You may therefore see a “Sell Out” message when trying to select specific numbers.
