Sandakan 4D Review

Sandakan 4D is a game of luck just like any other lottery game. You place a bet on a 4-digit number you have chosen and wait to see if your number is drawn among the 23 winning numbers. For Rm 1 bet, you can collect winnings of up to Rm 3,500.

How to Play Sandakan 4D

Playing Sandakan 4D is easy and fun. There are three main ways you can participate in this game as explained below.

Roll Front or Roll Back

Here, you decide whether to roll the front or back digit of your 4-digit number. Doing so generates 10 numbers with the back or front digits of each of the numbers starting from 0 to 9. The choice is totally yours with regards to the digits you want to roll.

Permutation Bets

If you have a favorite 4-digit number, you can generate permutations for it. The frequency of permutation depends on the particular number you have chosen and how often the digits in it occur. Take a case where all the 4 digits are different such as 1234. In this particular case, you will end up with 24 permutations.

Where two digits are the same such as in 4423, you will end up with 12 permutations. In a case where two pairs of digits are similar, for instance, 1122, you will have a total of 6 permutations. Lastly, in the event you have 3 digits in your 4-digit number that are the same, for example, 5553, you will have 4 permutations.

The main aim of permutations is to help you maximize on the possible outcomes. In this way, it becomes almost assured that you will win a prize somehow. Permutation bets are also known as box bets.

Easy-Pick Bets

This mode of playing is rather simple. All that you need to do is to request for a lucky number from the clerk at the outlet you are betting from. The clerk then generates the number for you through the gaming computer system. This is purely a random process and therefore no predictions as to the numbers to be generated can be made.

The ticket you receive when you pay up the respective amount based on your betting structure is your proof of purchase. You will be given a Sandakan 4D ticket that shows the bets you have placed. Ensure that the ticket you receive has the following features:
