Here’s what’s changing: Players who play Cash 5 with Quick Cash will receive their usual ticket with their numbers for the Cash 5 Evening Drawing. In addition to that ticket, players will also receive a separate Quick Cash game ticket, providing them with a chance to instantly win $2 or $6.
As part of the game changes for Cash 5 with Quick Cash, the cost per play is changing from $1 to $2. Players will find updated playslips at Lottery retailers across the Commonwealth. The Lottery anticipates that increased sales will support a higher starting jackpot and that players will experience higher jackpots more often.
“Lottery games, like Cash 5 with Quick Cash, help us generate funds that pay for vital programs that benefit older Pennsylvanians every day,” added Svitko. “These programs provide property tax and rent rebates, transportation, care services, prescription assistance, and local services including senior centers and meals.”
On April 23, 1992, the Pennsylvania Lottery introduced its longest-running jackpot game, Cash 5. Originally, Cash 5 players selected five numbers from 1 to 39 for a chance at the all-cash jackpot, starting at $100,000. Cash 5 started as a weekly game and eventually became a nightly drawing in 1998. In February 2008, the Lottery made a change to Cash 5, increasing the matrix from 5 of 39 numbers to 5 of 43 numbers.
The Lottery is also reminding players to please play responsibly. Players must be 18 or older. Those who may have a gambling problem may call 1-800-GAMBLER or visit www.pacouncil.com.
