Playing is easy - no poker skills are needed, so if you've never played poker before, don't let that stop you.

Each poker hand costs $2.00 to play and is Quick Pick only, with the Lottery computer randomly selecting your numbers. Each hand includes both ways to win (Win Now and Win Tonight), so make sure you keep your ticket to check after the nightly drawing.

Drawings are held every night at approximately 7:57 PM EST.

Win Now

Complete a winning poker hand to win up to $5,000 instantly! Choose whether you want to play your aces high or low. You can claim your winnings right away, without waiting until the evening drawing is finished.


For an extra $1 per hand, go ALL IN for larger prizes on the top five Win Now hands, plus the option to win a progressive jackpot!

Here's how it works:

  • If you have a Royal Flush (the top Win Now hand) with the ALL IN option, you win the whole progressive jackpot (100%).
  • A Straight Flush (the second-tier Win Now hand) including ALL IN wins 10% of the progressive jackpot.

The ALL IN Progressive Jackpot

The progressive jackpot kicks off with a sweet $10,000 prize! But that's not all - it keeps rolling and getting bigger with every ALL IN sale until someone wins it!

  • If you have a winning Royal Flush hand with ALL IN, you win $5,000 AND the entire progressive jackpot (100%) at the time.
  • If your hand is a winning Straight Flush including ALL IN, you win $500 AND 10% of the progressive jackpot at the time.

Win Tonight

  • Match two or more of the winning cards drawn in the nightly drawing and you'll win up to $100,000!
  • The Win Tonight drawing is held every night just after the Jersey Cash 5 draw, at about 7:57 PM EST.
  • If you claim a Win Now prize before the Win Tonight draw takes place, you can still take home a prize in the Win Tonight drawing, because you'll be given an exchange ticket with the same hands!
