How to play and pick your numbers

Playing Pick 5 is simple. Choose five lucky numbers between 1 and 40 by marking them on a playslip. If you feel indecisive, no problem. Ask the clerk for a quick pick, and let fate decide your numbers.

Each play costs only $1, and you can pick multiple sets of numbers on a single ticket. Want to play it safe and stick with your chosen numbers for a while? Use the multi-draw option to cover up to 12 weeks in advance.

Pick 5 drawings are held seven nights a week, giving you endless opportunities to try your luck. Winning numbers are announced each night in time for the 10 p.m. news, so you can tune in or check, your local news station, or any Nebraska Lottery retailer for the latest results.

The jackpot keeps climbing until someone wins

The Pick 5 jackpot starts at $50,000 and keeps growing bigger with each drawing that nobody wins. If multiple lucky players match the winning numbers, the prize pot is split evenly, ensuring everyone goes home a winner.

Score a free ticket with just two numbers

Even if you don't hit the jackpot, there's still a chance to win! Matching just two numbers gets you a free quick-pick play for the next drawing. It's a great way to keep the fun going without spending extra.
