HOW TO PLAY CASH5
Cash5 is the nightly pari-mutuel game with a top prize of up to
$100,000! Boost your chance to match and win by adding the "Kicker"
feature to your ticket. Drawings are held nightly at approximately 10:29pm
. To view Cash5 drawings after they have aired, please CLICK HERE
How to Play
- Fill in a Cash5 playslip by choosing 5 different numbers between 1 and 35. Tickets cost $1 per wager. (See Prize Payout Table below.)
- If you can't decide which numbers to play, let the computer pick your numbers for you. Just ask for a Cash5 Quick Pick.
- Only 5 numbers are drawn for Cash5.
- Each Cash5 playslip contains 5 separate $1 wagers.
- 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 (after the slash mark) is your "Kicker" number.
Activating your Kicker number increases your chance to match and win a prize
and costs just $.50 more per wager.
- If the Kicker isn't activated at the time of purchase, it can't be used to match and win.
- If your Kicker number matches one of the five winning numbers drawn, it can be used for a prize match.
The winning Cash5 numbers drawn: 05-12-14-16-30
Cash5 numbers on your ticket: 05-10-14-16-30 K: 12 Y
Because your Kicker number "12" is activated (Y=Yes) on your ticket, it can be used for a 4 number + Kicker match prize.

CASH5 PRIZES CAN BECOME PARI-MUTUEL
Prizes in the Cash5 game are normally paid at the fixed amounts shown in the table above. In the event total Cash5 prize liability exceeds 350% of sales for any drawing, however, prize levels are calculated on a "parimutuel" basis, and each winning ticket at each level receives an equal share of the available prize pool for that level. When this occurs, actual prizes will be lower than the amounts shown in the Prize Payout table.
- Verify your ticket at time of purchase.
- Sign your ticket immediately upon purchase to establish ownership.
- Cash5 tickets cannot be cancelled and all sales are final.
- The CT Lottery reserves the right to cancel or suspend any drawing or game, prize structure or frequency of drawings in accordance with established game rules.
