There's a new game on the way for lottery players in Texas.

Starting on Monday, the new "Daily Four" game will give players the chance to pick four numbers in a straight, box, or pair formation.

Managers at the Texas Lottery Commission say the new features will help in winning those cash prizes.

"Daily Four will have a new feature, and that is pairs play. So players can wager on the front pair, the mid pair, or the back pair, and this is the first game in Texas to offer that type of play feature," Robert Tirloni, Lottery Products Mgr., said.

In addition to the new Daily Four, lottery managers say a new feature, "Sum It Up" will give players another chance to win prizes.

The Texas Lottery Commission says they hope to increase proceeds for the State's Foundation School Fund.
