Quick Bucks is a daily draw game from the Kentucky Lottery that offers a $50,000 top prize, 1 in 4 overall odds of winning a cash prize, plus a unique Wheel Bet add-on that guarantees a win.
QUICK BUCKS IS ENDING: The final Kentucky Quick Bucks draw will take place on March 14th 2020. Prizes can be claimed up to 180 days after the draw date.
How to Play
To start playing, fill out a playslip. First, choose the number of drawings you'd like to play. You can play up to five drawings per playslip - each drawing has a letter: A, B, C, D and E. You can also play up to 14 times in a row with Multidraw - just mark whether you'd like to play 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 or 14 consecutive draws.
For a Single Bet play, choose four numbers from 1-31 for each drawing you want to play. Each draw costs $1.00. Next, pick a single Kentucky Ball number from 1-5 (it can be the same as one of your four main numbers). The lottery computer will randomly select the order of the four numbers on your ticket. You can also select Quick Pick to have the computer randomly choose the four main numbers and / or the Kentucky Ball number.
Alternatively, you can select the Wheel Bet play for $5.00. In this case, you only need to choose four main numbers from 1-31, not the Kentucky Ball. Wheel Bet gives you five chances to win using all five Kentucky Balls and your four main numbers. You also receive a guaranteed prize of at least $2.00! A Wheel Bet will contain all five plays on a single ticket. If you've played other Single Bet plays (without Wheel Bet) on the playslip, they will each print on a separate ticket.
The total ticket cost equals your wager amount, multiplied by the number of drawings you've chosen on your playslip.
The draw is held every night at approximately 11:00 pm ET / 10:00 CT. If you're lucky enough to win a prize, you may claim it the next business day following the drawing.
