For liability purposes, there are limits to how many unique number selections can be purchased for each PICK-4 draw. OLG will suspend Straight Play and Box Play PICK-4 wagering for any 4-digit number that has exceeded a total potential prize liability of $1 million for any given draw.
For PICK-2, OLG limits the total number of a specific 2-digit number selections issued to approximately 17,000 selections.
If a liability limit is reached before the subscription ticket is purchased, the purchase will not be completed. If you want to ensure that you get to play your number every time for games like PICK-2 and PICK-4, you may prefer to try Advance Play at an OLG Lottery Retailer.
