Guide to Play Different Types of Games

4D Game

A popular game where players pick a number from 0000 to 9999. During the draw, 23 winning numbers are picked, and if one of the numbers matches the one you picked, you win. It offers multiple winning chances and thrills with its simplicity and straightforward gameplay.

How to Play

There are 5 different ways to engage in this 4D gaming. You can venture into the Standard Bet category, where a Big Bet could potentially net you a prize from one of 23 winning combinations, encompassing the top three, along with numerous lucky and consolation prizes. For a more narrowed focus, a Small Bet puts you in the running exclusively for the top three prized positions, increasing the stakes and the excitement.

Taking a step further into complexity, the System Bet, also known as Pau, allows bets on all possible permutations of a 4D number, amplifying the anticipation with each draw. Meanwhile, i-PLAY stands as a simpler alternative, permitting bets on multiple permutations for a nominal fee of RM1.00. 

You can try out the 4D Roll that lets you swap a digit with ‘R’, representing any number from 0 to 9, effectively giving you ten chances to win. And for those who prefer a gamble without the guesswork, the Quick Pick option lets the computer select a random 4D number for you, offering an easy entry point into the world of 4D gaming.

3D Game

Similar to the 4D game but here, players choose a number from 000 to 999. It has fewer numbers to choose from compared to the 4D game, potentially increasing the chances of winning.

How to Play

There are four different ways to play and win. The first way is the Standard Bet where you stand a chance to win from any of the three prize categories with your chosen 3-digit number. It is as simple as selecting your favorite three numbers and keeping an eye on the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd prize drawings.

Another betting option is the System Bet, also known as Pau, and bet on all the potential arrangements of your chosen 3D number, like 567 which translates to six different bets: 567, 576, 657, 675, 765, and 756. Or you might prefer the 3D Roll where you replace one of the digits with ‘R’, representing numbers from 0 to 9, essentially giving you ten entries in one go. For instance, choosing R67 expands your bet to include 067, 167, up to 967. 

And if you are looking for a quick play, choose the Quick Pick, where the computer randomly selects a 3D number for you, available for both Standard and System Bets. Just mention “Quick Pick” to the sales operators. The “Quick Pick” option is available for both Standard and System Bets.

Lotto 6/45 Game

A game where players select 6 numbers from a pool of 45. If the numbers match the drawn numbers, they win a prize, with the jackpot going to those who match all six numbers. It offers big jackpots and exciting chances to win with a relatively small number pool, enhancing the thrill of the game.

How to Play

There are 3 different ways to play this game. In Standard Bet, you can choose a combination of 6 distinct numbers, ranging anywhere from 1 to 45. This conventional method offers a straightforward approach to the game, where the selection of the numbers relies heavily on your choice.

If you are looking to enhance your chances, you might consider the System Bet, also known as “Pau”. This option allows for a broader selection, encompassing 7 to 12 numbers from the same range of 1 to 45, providing an expanded opportunity to win. 

Additionally, there is the Quick Pick alternative for those who prefer a hassle-free gaming experience. Here, the computer randomly selects a set of numbers on your behalf, eliminating the need to choose numbers manually. To opt for this, simply mention “Quick Pick” to the sales operators.

Prize Pool

The total prize pool for each drawing session consists of 55% of the net accumulated bets placed during that period. The primary jackpot, known as Group 1 Prize, receives a substantial portion of this pool, specifically 20%, along with an additional RM500,000 and any rollover amounts from preceding draws. 

Conversely, the secondary jackpot, termed as the Group 2 Prize, is allocated 3% of this pool, supplemented with an upfront sum of RM5,000 and any rollovers from earlier sessions. This system ensures a dynamic and escalating prize amount that builds excitement and anticipation with each new draw.


In the event that there are no winners in Group 1 and Group 2, the prize money does not go to waste; instead, it ‘snowballs’, accumulating and rolling over to augment the prize pool for the subsequent draw. This process continues, with the prize sum growing each time, until fortunate winners emerge to claim the bounty.

Equal Sharing

The principle of “equal sharing” is exclusively applicable to the prizes in Group 1 and Group 2. In instances where multiple participants have winning combinations in these groups, the respective prize pools are distributed evenly among them. Essentially, a winning share signifies a successful combination within any prize category, ensuring that all winners get an equal slice of the prize pie.

4D Jackpot Game

An extension of the 4D game where players can pair two of their 4D numbers into one ‘pair’ to stand a chance to win multi-million ringgit jackpots. It allows players to win larger prizes and adds a fresh and exciting twist to the classic 4D game.

How to Play

There are various ways to play this game. In the Ordinary way, you need to choose a pair of 4D numbers, each falling within the broad range of 0000 to 9999. Besides, the Quick Pick (QPK) feature is a fortunate number conjured by the online gaming system. You have the flexibility to merge a set of QPK 4D numbers with a 4D number of your own selection, or you can even choose to pair two QPK 4D numbers to create your unique 4D Jackpot number. 

In Permutation (“PAU”), it involves placing a wager that encompasses all potential combinations of one or both of your chosen 4D numbers. This approach amplifies your chances of winning by automatically including every variation of the numbers selected in your bet, ensuring a wider coverage and enhancing the excitement of the game.

In Roll, choose 3 numbers on your own, followed by a rolling digit to complete your 4D number selection. This special rolling digit, marked as “R”, can be any number between 0 and 9, adding an exciting twist to your game. You have the freedom to apply the rolling feature to one or even both of the 4D numbers. You can even combine both “Pau” and “Roll”.

You can utilize the System option, which encompasses all potential combinations. The System Bet offers two variants: the “Ordinary System Bet” and the “Smart System Bet”. Essentially, when you possess more than two 4D digits, a System Bet facilitates the “Pau”, covering all conceivable pair combinations for your Sabah 4D Jackpot digits. You can choose anywhere from a minimum of three sets (SB3) to a maximum of twenty sets (SB20) of 4D Jackpot numbers, a feature available exclusively with the Ordinary System Bet.
