The drawing takes place at 11 pm ET six nights a week, Monday through Saturday. Ticket sales close at 10:45 pm for that evening's draw.

Even if you've never played poker before, you can still enjoy 5 Card Cash because no card-playing skill is involved. Each ticket is a Quick Pick, with five card symbols randomly selected by the lottery computer from a total of 52. Players cannot choose their own cards.

Each play costs $2.00 and includes both ways to win, so keep your ticket safe and make sure to check the nightly draw results.
