Only 5 numbers are drawn for Cash5. Each Cash5 play slip contains 5 separate $1 wagers. Play all 5 wagers for $5! (Add the Kicker for $.50 more per wager). Buy tickets for future drawings with the "Advance Action" option, available for up to 26 drawings. Get 26 Advance Action plays for the price of 25!
Add the Kicker!
Cash5 tickets are printed with 6 different numbers on each line. The last number in the far-right position is the "Kicker." Activating the Kicker increases your chance to match and win a prize and costs just $.50 more per play. If the Kicker isn't activated at the time of purchase, it can't be used to match and win.
