PA Lottery Games – Cash 5 Lottery Prizes and Odds

The Cash 5 starting jackpot is $125,000 and it grows until someone picks the winning Lottery numbers. If more than one person wins the jackpot, the winners will split the Cash 5 Lottery jackpot. All Cash 5 Lottery prizes are made as one-time, lump-sum payments. Check out the chart below for details on Cash 5 Lottery prizes and odds, and check out the official Cash 5 Lottery rules.

Match Probability of winning per play Distributions of winnings pool*

*For each drawing, 50 percent of Cash 5 gross sales are allocated to the total winnings pool. After the fourth prizes are deducted from the pool, the remaining prize money is allocated to the first, second and third prize categories, and then divided equally among the winning plays in each category. (Example: if there is only one winner, that person wins the entire prize category amount; if there are 10 winners, the prize category amount is divided into 10 equal shares.) All prizes are paid in cash.
