About 4D Jackpot

The 4D Jackpot game is an extension of the 4D game with a multi-million-dollar jackpot that can truly make your million-dollar dreams come true!

To play, all you have to do is pick two 4-digit numbers, or 4D Numbers, from the 10,000 possible numbers of 0000 to 9999 to form a pair, e.g. (0108, 9912), (3388, 8383), or (1001, 9080).

Each pair of 4D Numbers chosen is considered as one Normal Bet and an investment of RM2 or multiples thereof is required for placing any one Normal Bet. On the right is an example of a 4D Jackpot ticket.

With this game, you win when one or both of the 4D Numbers in your pair matches one or more of the 23 winning numbers drawn. See the section How to Win with 4D Jackpot Game for more details.

How to Play 4D Jackpot?

There are many ways of playing the 4D Jackpot game. Examples of the various ways of plays are described below.

1. Straight Play

This is where you explicitly pick a pair of 4D Numbers from 0000 to 9999. For example:

1st 4D Number 2nd 4D Number Total Amount Payable
1128 2238 1 x RM2 = RM2

2. Lucky Pick Play

If you don't know what 4D Numbers to buy, go for Lucky Pick and let our computer randomly pick the 4D Numbers for you. For example:

1st 4D Number 2nd 4D Number Total Amount Payable
3560 LP 8797 LP 1 x RM2 = RM2

LP stands for Lucky Pick.

3. Permutation Play

Permutate ("Pau") either one or both of the 4D Numbers to cover more pairs of 4D Numbers to give you a greater chance of winning. For example:

1st 4D Number 2nd 4D Number No. of Pairs Total Amount Payable
5645 1278 PM24 1 X 24 = 24 RM2 x 24 = RM48
0003 PM4 3367 4 X 1 = 4 RM2 x 4 = RM8
1234 PM24 3367 PM12 24 x 12 = 288 RM2 x 288 = RM576
5298 PM24 3232 PM6 24 x 6 = 144 RM2 x 144 = RM288
5578 PM12 1115 PM4 12 x 4 = 48 RM2 x 48 = RM96

PM stands for Permutation.

Please note that permutating a 4D Number allows you to cover all possible permutations of that 4D Number.
For example:

Permutate 4D Number Number of Permutations All Possible Permutations
3330 4 3330    3303    3033    0333
4. Roll Play

“Roll” either one or both of the 4D Numbers to cover more pairs of 4D Numbers to give you a greater chance of winning. For example:

1st 4D Number 2nd 4D Number No. of Pairs Total Amount Payable
R645 RL 1278 10 X 1 = 10 RM2 x 10 = RM20
00R3 RL 336R RL 10 X 10 = 100 RM2 x 100 = RM200

RL stands for Roll.

Please note that “rolling” any one of the 4 digits of a 4D Number allows you to cover all possible numbers from 0 to 9 for that particular rolled digit. For example:

Roll One Digit
All Possible Numbers
R645
0645     1645     2645     3645     4645     5645     6645     7645     8645     9645    
00R3
0003     0013     0023     0033     0043     0053     0063     0073     0083     0093    
5. Combination Play of Permutation & Roll

Combine permutation and roll to cover your desired pairs of 4D Numbers. For example:

1st 4D Number 2nd 4D Number No. of Pairs Total Amount Payable
R645 RL 1278 PM24 10 x 24 = 240 RM2 x 240 = RM480
0003 PM4 336R RL 4 x 10 = 40 RM2 x 40 = RM80

How to Play 4D Jackpot System Bet?

A System Bet gives you the option to play more 4D Numbers per bet instead of the usual two for a greater chance of winning.

For example, you could play a System 7 which enables you to choose seven 4D Numbers rather than just two, giving you the equivalent of 21 unique pairs of 4D Numbers and hence 21 chances of winning instead of just 1.

With 4D Jackpot, you can play from System 3 to System 480, giving you 3 to 114,960 chances to win respectively.

The following are examples of some System Bets.

Example1: System 3 Bet

If you have 3 favorite 4D Numbers 1001, 2002 and 3003, just tell the Sales Operator you want to buy System 3 on the three numbers 1001, 2002 and 3003.

You will then be issued a System 3 ticket that costs RM6 as shown below:

This is equivalent to you buying the following 3 pairs of 4D Numbers, giving you 3 chances of winning.

1001 + 2002
2002 + 3003
1001 + 3003
Example 2: System 7 Bet

Below is an example of a System 7 ticket that costs RM42.

Buying this System 7 of 1234, 1001, 5000, 6123, 7007, 8008 and 9009 is equivalent to you buying the following 21 pairs of 4D Numbers, giving you 21 chances of winning.

1234 + 1001 1001 + 5000 5000 + 6123 6123 + 7007 7007 + 8008 8008 + 9009
1234 + 5000 1001 + 6123 5000 + 7007 6123 + 8008 7007 + 9009  
1234 + 6123 1001 + 7007 5000 + 8008 6123 + 9009    
1234 + 7007 1001 + 8008 5000 + 9009      
1234 + 8008 1001 + 9009        
1234 + 9009          
Example 3: System 12 Bet

With System Bet, one can also roll or permutate one or more of the chosen 4D Numbers. The example below shows a System 12 bet on the twelve (12) 4D Numbers derived from permutating the number 1123.

We call this Enhanced System Bet.

This System 12 Bet yields 66 pairs of 4D Numbers, giving you 66 chances of winning.

Example 4: System 23 Bet

As shown in Example 3, one can roll or permutate one or more of the 4D Numbers chosen for a System Bet.

The example below shows a System Bet where two of the 4D Numbers are permutated and one of the 4D Numbers is rolled, resulting in a System 23 bet that costs a total of RM506.

This System 23 Bet yields 253 pairs of 4D Numbers, giving you 253 chances of winning.

Draw Results of 4D Jackpot Game

Each draw, as shown in the actual draw results for 5 Apr 2011 below, has 23 winning 4D Numbers.

How to Win with 4D Jackpot?

As earlier explained, with 4D Jackpot game, you win as long as one of the two 4D Numbers you picked matches one of the 23 winning numbers drawn.

The table below explains how one can win each of the 5 categories of prizes available in the 4D Jackpot game.

Prize Category Pre-Requisites for Win Prize Money
Category 1

When one of the 4D Numbers in the chosen pair matches one of the three Top prizes, i.e. either the 1st, 2nd or 3rd prize,

and

the other 4D Number from the same pair matches one of the two remaining three Top prizes,

For example, if the 1st 4D Number in the chosen pair matches the 1st Prize, the 2nd 4D Number from the same pair must match either the 2nd or the 3rd prize.

Prize Money of 4D Jackpot

The table below shows the prize monies paid for the 5 categories of prizes that may be won in the 4D Jackpot game.

Prize Category Prize Money Applicable Rules
Category 1

Jackpot 1 Prize = RM2 million + Jackpot 1 Snowball

where Jackpot 1 Snowball is the sum equivalent to 30.25% of the total gross sales of all draws. By all draws we mean all the draws starting from the 1st draw immediately after Jackpot 1 is won until and including the draw when Jackpot 1 is next won again

 

If there are multiple winners, Jackpot 1 Sharing Rule below applies.

Category 2

Jackpot 2 Prize = Jackpot 2 Snowball + Cascaded Amount
(subject to a minimum of RM100,000)

where

Jackpot 2 Snowball is the sum equivalent to 5.5% of the total gross sales of all draws. By all draws we mean all the draws starting from the 1st draw immediately after Jackpot 2 is won until and including the draw when Jackpot 2 is next won again.

Cascaded Amount is the difference between Jackpot 1 Prize and RM20million if and only if Jackpot 1 Prize is greater than RM30million and there is still no winner for Category 1. See What is Cascading below for more details.

If Jackpot 2 Prize is less than RM100,000 when Category 2 is won, the company will top it up to the guaranteed minimum of RM100,000

If there are multiple winners, Jackpot 2 Sharing Rule below applies.

Category 3 RM168 for every RM2 bet

In the very unlikely event that the total payout of any of these three categories exceeds RM10 million in any single draw, the Reduced Prize Money Rule below applies.

Category 4 RM68 for every RM2 bet
Category 5 RM28 for every RM2 bet

Jackpot 1 Sharing Rule
If there is more than one winner for Category 1, the Jackpot 1 prize will then be divided amongst the winners based solely on the bet amounts of their respective winning bets. Each unit bet of RM2 is entitled to one (1) share of the Jackpot 1 prize.

Therefore, if there are 2 winners with the following winning bets:

  • Winner 1 has a winning bet of RM4
  • Winner 2 has a winning bet of RM2

Winner 1 will win 4/6 or 2/3 of Jackpot 1 prize
Winner 2 will win 2/6 or 1/3 of Jackpot 1 prize

Jackpot 2 Sharing Rule
If there is more than one winner for Category 2, the Jackpot 2 prize will be divided amongst the winners based on the bet amounts of their respective winning bets and the number of Category 2 prizes won by their respective winning bets. This is because, in Category 2, some winning bets may win more Category 2 prizes than others due to the fact that winning numbers, though unlikely, can repeat.

Therefore, if there are 3 winners with the following winning bets:

  • Winner 1 has a winning bet of RM4 that wins 2 Category 2 prizes
  • Winner 2 has a winning bet of RM4 that wins 1 Category 2 prize
  • Winner 3 has a winning bet of RM2 that wins 1 Category 2 prize

Winner 1 will win (4 x 2) / (4 x 2 + 4 x 1 + 2 x 1) or 4/7 of Jackpot 2 prize
Winner 2 will win (4 x 1) / (4 x 2 + 4 x 1 + 2 x 1) or 2/7 of Jackpot 2 prize
Winner 3 will win (2 x 1) / (4 x 2 + 4 x 1 + 2 x 1) or 1/7 of Jackpot 2 prize

Reduced Prize Money Rule
For Categories 3, 4 and 5, if the total payout in any one of these Categories for any single draw should exceed RM10 million, its Prize Money shall be accordingly reduced until its total payout is less than or equal to RM10million.

For example, if there are 70,000 winning entries for Category 3 that win RM168 each, resulting in a total category payout of RM11,760,000 (i.e. RM168 * 70,000) that exceeds RM10 million, the Prize Money for Category 3 shall then be adjusted downwards as follows:

RM10,000,000 / 70,000 = RM142.85

Under such very unlikely circumstances, each winning entry of RM2 for Category 3 shall then win RM142.85 instead of RM168.

What is Cascading?

To make winning millions easier for our customers, Magnum’s 4D Jackpot game has this unique and innovative feature whereby the Jackpot 2 Prize, which is 10 times easier to win than Jackpot 1 Prize, could  grow into a sum greater than RM10 million!

The following illustration explains how this unique Cascading features works.

In short, in any particular draw where Jackpot 1 Prize has surpassed RM30 million and there is still no winner, and during the same draw, there are one or more winners for Jackpot 2, the amount equivalent to Jackpot 1 Prize minus RM20 million will be Cascaded and Added to the Jackpot 2 Prize. The Jackpot 2 winners will therefore get to share a Jackpot 2 Prize greater than RM10 million!
