How to Play the Catochi Lottery
Big Wheel Lottery is the first to release the Catochi lottery game online. Tickets for a Catochi draw can be purchased up to ten days prior to the specific draw on a specific date. Catochi is also referred to as Pick 4 as the aim is to pick a combination of four numbers from a range of numbers from 0000 to 9999. There are a variety of ways to play Catochi including pick four, last three, back two or back and front. These options are chosen before the draw and a win will only occur if the option matches the draw. There is a multi-draw feature available where the option to play more than one ticket at a time with the same selection of numbers is possible.
Live Catochi lottery draws take place seven days a week and two times per day. Catochi lottery tickets can be bought right up until shortly before the live draw takes place and any ticket bought after that specific time is entered into the following live draw. The draws take place live on television but all the winning results are uploaded online onto all lottery sites that offer the game as well as the Big Wheel Lottery site, Twitter and Facebook. The results can also be seen in local outlets and newspaper publications. The first, second and third prizes are won by matching all four of the selected numbers to the first, second or third draws respectively.
The Rules for Big Wheel Lottery Tickets
In order for a ticket to be valid it needs to be purchased at any land based retail outlet or any reputable and registered online site that offers the authentic lottery game. Any cancelled ticket is not valid and will result in forfeiting any win. Paper tickets need to be in good condition and not be altered, damaged or not registered on the system. If a ticket does produce a winning result then the winning prize must be claimed within fourteen days or the winning ticket will no longer be valid.
