Jersey Cash 5
Jersey Cash 5 is a quick little draw game that takes place seven days a week, with the jackpot starting at $75,000! All you have to do is pay $1 per line and pick five numbers from 1 to 43 or have five numbers randomly generated for you with Quick Pick.
To play your chosen numbers for up to 21 consecutive drawings, just mark the number of draws you want to enter in the Multi Draw area of your playslip.
Drawings take place seven nights a week at 7:57 PM EST. Purchase your tickets by 7:53 PM to enter that evening's draw - otherwise you'll go in the next day's draw.
If no one wins the jackpot, the amount is rolled over into the top prize for the next day's drawing.
XTRA Multiplies Your Winnings
For $1 more per play, you can add the XTRA feature to increase the value of any non-jackpot prizes you win by up to five times. Just mark the circle on your playslip to add XTRA.
The XTRA number drawn is a multiplier that can increase your non-jackpot winnings up to five times!
For example, if the XTRA number drawn is two, then if you match three or four of the winning Jersey Cash 5 numbers, your prize is doubled. If the XTRA number is five and you match three or four of the regular numbers, your prize just got five times bigger! Not only that, but XTRA also gives you an instant win of $2.00 for matching just two numbers.
Add Instant Match for the Chance to Win $500
Love winning, hate waiting? Then Instant Match is for you! For an extra $1, you could win up to $500 on the spot! If one of your three Instant Match numbers matches just one of your Jersey Cash 5 numbers in any order or position, you win the prize shown on the Instant Match ticket instantly. And there's more - you can win up to five times on a single ticket.
You'll get a ticket with three Instant Match numbers - if any of those numbers match any of your Jersey Cash 5 numbers, you win a cash prize right on the spot! The odds of winning any Instant Match prize are approximately one in 7.
