Cash 5 with Quick Cash offers a fun and exciting way to play the lottery. Here's how it works:

  • Pick five lucky numbers from 1 to 43. If you feeling indecisive, let the computer choose your numbers with a Quick Pick option.
  • Match all five drawn numbers to win the big jackpot. Prizes are also awarded for matching two, three, or four winning numbers.
  • Each $2 ticket packs a double punch: you get entry into the main Cash 5 game evening drawing and one shot at the Quick Cash instant win game.
  • The Quick Cash game offers the chance to win $2 or $6 on the spot. While the odds of winning the Cash 5 jackpot are a bit steeper (1 in 962,598), your chances of winning a Quick Cash prize are much better (1 in 4.71).
