Charlotte ticket wins $1.2 million Cash 5 jackpot

Someone who bought a Cash 5 ticket at a Charlotte grocery store starts the Labor Day weekend with a $1.2 million jackpot.

The winner bought the $1 ticket at a Food Lion on Cambridge Commons Drive in Charlotte. The ticket matched all five numbers in Friday’s Cash 5 drawing.

The odds of matching numbers on all five balls are 1 in 962,598. The winner has 180 days from the drawing to claim the prize.

The $1,226,664 jackpot became the first to exceed $1 million since November. The record Cash 5 jackpot stands at $2.1 million and was won in April 2021.

Since the jackpot was won Friday, Saturday’s jackpot resets to $100,000.

Cash 5 is one of six lottery games in North Carolina where players have the option of buying their tickets at a retail location or with Online Play through the lottery’s website or with the NC Lottery Official Mobile App.

Ticket sales from draw games like Cash 5 make it possible for the lottery to raise $2.5 million a day on average for education. For details on how money raised by the lottery made a difference in North Carolina last year, visit www.nclottery.com and click on the “Impact” section.

How exactly, do I enter my Power Ball numbers for the chance to win a trip to NYC and ring in the 2024 bell as a millionaire? NC Lottery
Hi Orrie, first you will just need to purchase a Powerball ticket in September, which includes Online Play, to enter the Powerball First, we start with 35 semifinalist, plus be entered into an additional national drawing where five finalists will win a VIP trip for two people to New York City. We hope to see you out there.

DON, you have just as much of a change of winning any lottery as anyone in Charlotte or a large city OR....... anyone who plays from their cabin in the woods in the mounts online. I second Andrew S - would like to see a double play option for Cash 5 online.

Has nothing to do with cash 5 but someone looked up the Mega Cash ticket and found out the locations that had them. How do I do that?

Charlotte again. More people more ticket, sales, bigger population blah blah blah. The lottery love these big jackpot prizes. They made over $300,000 off of this In profit. Hendersonville keep buying tickets so people in Charlotte can win.

Why is there no double play option in online play for Cash 5? And NO there isn't, at least on my desktop and phone there is nowhere NC Lottery
Hi Andrew, at this time, Double Play and EZ Match are only available for ticket purchases made at retailers. Sorry about that! We have not received info on when we will try implementing those bonus options. I think it's probably a stability issue, we have seen numerous issues with the app that this may not function properly risking potential errors that may result in bonuses not getting applied to the intended games.
