How to Play
Draws are held seven nights a week at approximately 11:00pm ET. Tickets cost $1.00. Ticket sales close at 10:55pm, so be sure to get your tickets before then to be entered in that night's game.
Playing couldn't be easier. Simply select four white balls from 1-35, plus one Cash Ball from 1-25. Alternatively, let Quick Pick do the work - the lottery computer will pick your numbers at random.
You can choose to play your numbers for more than one draw - select 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 10, 15 or 20 consecutive draws to take part in.
Multi-Draw is a convenient way to play your favorite numbers in multiple future drawings. Another way to play the same numbers again is to give the retailer your ticket and ask to "Play it Again" - no need to fill out a playslip.
For an extra $1.00 per play, you can add EZMatch for the chance to win up to a $500 cash prize on the spot - that's on top of any prize you may win in the nightly drawing. Five EZMatch numbers and the instant win amounts will be printed on the ticket below the Cash Ball numbers.
To win an EZMatch prize, your first four EZMatch numbers must match your first four Cash Ball numbers. In addition to or instead of this, if your EZMatch Cash Ball number (shown as CB) matches the Kentucky Cash Ball number, you'll win the instant prize amount printed on the ticket.
With a Multi-Draw ticket, the EZMatch play(s) will only be valid for the next drawing, not any future drawings. You will receive a separate ticket for each play with EZMatch.
