Cash 5 with Quick Cash

Cash 5 is the Pennsylvania Lottery's longest-running draw game, with a jackpot that often rolls into hundreds of thousands of dollars. There are 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 Quick Cash instant win feature is included with every Cash 5 purchase. Players receive a separate Quick Cash ticket and can win an immediate $2 or $6 cash payout. The cost of a Cash 5 with Quick Cash play is $2.

The Cash 5 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 play costs $2.00, and you can enter up to five times per playslip. Simply pick five numbers from 1 to 43 for each Cash 5 play, or let Quick Pick choose them for you.

A Quick Cash instant win ticket is also included automatically.

If you'd like to play your lucky numbers more than once, you can enter up to seven consecutive drawings in advance.

You'll receive a Cash 5 ticket and a Quick Cash ticket. You can score a prize on the spot with Quick Cash, and also have the chance to win a Cash 5 payout when the draw rolls around.
