Mark five numbers between 1 and 35 in each of the game boards (you can play up to 5 on the one ticket) you wish to play, at a cost of $1 per game. You can either select all the numbers yourself, or opt to have the Quick Pick system automatically select numbers for you.
Up to 26 consecutive game draws can be played in advance on the one ticket.
matching all 5 winning numbers
matching 4 numbers
matching 3 numbers
For an extra 50 cents per game, you can play Kicker, giving you additional chances to win when playing Cash5. A sixth number, auto-generated, appears on the ticket. Tell the clerk you want to play Kicker, and the letter 'Y' will appear beside the sixth number.
If playing the Kicker number, these winning options are added:
matching 4 winning numbers + the Kicker
matching 3 winning numbers + the Kicker
matching 2 winning numbers + the Kicker
matching 1 winning numbers + the Kicker
The top prize, for matching 5 numbers in Cash5, is up to $100,000.
