We’ve got some exciting news for Cash 5 players. Starting in November, you’re going to see bigger and faster growing jackpots.
On Sunday, Nov. 4, starting jackpots will double from $50,000 to $100,000. You’ve seen this change during special Cash 5 promotions, but now we’re making it permanent. This means the starting jackpot for Cash 5 will stay at $100,000.
You’re also going to see faster growing jackpots. Instead of the jackpot increasing by $3,000 if it isn’t hit, now it will increase by at least $10,000.
The game will still cost $1 to play, but the range of numbers to choose from will move from 1-41 to 1-43. The odds of winning a Cash 5 jackpot will increase to 1 in 962,598. The overall odds of winning a prize will be 1 in 10.51.
Lower tier prizes will now be a set amount. If you match four numbers, you win $250. If you match three, you win $5; and if you match two, you win $1.
What is called a “multi-draw step-down” begins Sunday. Starting then, a player will be able to buy a multi-draw ticket for a maximum of 27 drawings. Each day the number of multi-draw plays possible will step down by one drawing until it reaches zero the day before the updated game begins.
If you have questions about the changes to the game or the multi-draw step-down, the best way to get your questions answered is to call Customer Services between 8 a.m. and 5:30 p.m., Monday through Friday, at (877) 962-7529.
We hope you'll enjoy the new version of Carolina Cash 5.
