Cash 5 is a Pennsylvania Lottery game with a jackpot that often rolls into hundreds of thousands of dollars and no annuity payments — if you win the top prize, you get the whole thing free and clear in one payout! With no caps or limits on the jackpot, it keeps climbing until someone hits it by matching all five numbers.
The drawing is held every evening at 6:59 pm ET, seven days a week. To enter that evening's draw, make sure to purchase your tickets before sales end at 6:57 pm. Otherwise, you'll be entered in the next night's draw.
How to Play
Each planel on the playslip is one play, so you can play up to five times per playslip. Each play costs $1.00.
Simply pick five numbers from 1 to 43 for each play, or let Quick Pick choose them for you.
If you'd like to play your lucky numbers more than once, you can enter up to seven consecutive drawings in advance.
