Intro to Wheel Four Gold
Wheel Four Gold helps you improve your odds of winning lottery prizes for ANY pick-3 or pick-4 lottery game in the world (not including daily digit games). You can choose a larger set of numbers to put in a wheel of your choice, and the program will give you a list of tickets to buy to guarantee that you'll win a specific minimum prize. For best results, use Advantage Gold first to choose the set of numbers that you'll wheel based on number selection strategies.

- Save your wheel
- Test drive wheel combinations through our lotto history files (requires Advantage Gold or free SlhEdit to be installed) to see what you would have won had you played the wheel every game

Use Lotto History Files for FREE with Wheel Four Gold
Though Wheel Four Gold is great on its own, it is even better if you use the lotto history options. If you own our Advantage Gold software, Wheel Four Gold can work with Advantage Gold to give you more options.

Lotto History Features
- Can win-check saved wheels against the last drawing of your chosen lottery.
- Automatically inserts name of history file if used in the Saved-Wheel reference field and reloads that history when a saved wheel is opened or win-checked.
- Test drives your wheel through any lottery file we offer to see what you would have won had you played the wheel every game.
- Interfaces with existing Advantage Gold installation if you have purchased and installed the program for even more history features.

Wheel Four Gold Game Types
Wheel Four Gold IS FOR: Pick-4 or Pick-3 Regular Format Lotto Games Only.
Wheel Four Gold is a lotto wheeling software program used for wheeling the lotto numbers in the following pick four lotto games: Arizona Weekly Winnings, Florida Mega Money, Kentucky Cash Ball, Oregon Win for Life, Texas Two Step, Washington Match 4, Missouri $250k Triple Play, and Canada Western Payday.
These lottery games have winning sets of numbers that might look like this: 01-23-37-39
The pick-3 wheels in Wheel Four Gold would work for the rare regular format pick-3 lottery. Note that we do not track lotto history for any pick-3 games at this time.
Wheel Four Gold Game Limitations
Wheel Four Gold IS NOT FOR: Daily Number 4-Digit Games.
Wheel Four Gold is NOT designed for the 4-digit games 0000-9999, which have winning numbers such as 0123 or 9876 or the 3-digit games 000-999, which have winning numbers such as 944 or 182.
Wheel Four Gold IS NOT IDEAL FOR: England's Hot Picks.
Wheel Four Gold is not ideal for England's Hot Picks which is played by marking 4 numbers on a ticket. The 4-number Hot Picks game has only one prize category - the top prize. It does not pay anything for less than a 4-number match, and wheeling programs are based on the concept of a guaranteed win lower than the top prize. When secondary prizes are not awarded, the usefulness of wheeling is limited. Only a Full Wheel has a win guarantee that guarantees the top prize, the only prize in Hot Picks. The majority of wheels in the Wheel Four Gold program are abbreviated Balanced Wheels®, not Full Wheels. Wheel Four Gold has Full Wheels for up to 13 numbers; One Power Number Wheels for up to 17 numbers; and Two Power Number Wheels for up to 35 numbers.
Wheel Four Gold has NO Specialty Powerball Type Pick-4 or Pick-3 Wheels
Games with formats like pick-4 + pick-1 or pick-3 + pick-1 do not have special wheels included in this program, but you can wheel the main set of numbers for these games. Gail Howard recommends using a pick-4 or pick-3 wheel like those in Wheel Four Gold for the main set of numbers and mark the Bonus ball separately on your play slip. The only way to wheel all the numbers would be to repeat the entire wheel with each Bonus Ball used-- which would create huge, expensive wheels. For more info: wheeling with Powerball games and strategizing for the Powerball number.
* Note: Power Numbers® are NOT the same as Power ball or Mega Millions bonus ball numbers. Please read the description of Power Numbers®.
