Cash 5 with Quick Cash Jackpot Leaps to Record $2.5 Million for Tonight’s Drawing

Middletown, PA – The Cash 5 with Quick Cash jackpot has grown to $2.5 million for tonight’s drawing. This is the largest jackpot in the game’s history. The Cash 5 jackpot has been rolling since it was last won on July 25, when a $580,000 jackpot-winning ticket was sold in Lawrence County. This current Cash 5 jackpot run has generated more than $7 million in sales, and more than $1.6 million in profit for senior programs.
“What an exciting time to be playing the Pennsylvania Lottery’s longest-running jackpot game, Cash 5,” said Pennsylvania Lottery Executive Director Drew Svitko. “All of our Lottery products, including our online games and Cash 5 with Quick Cash, help the Pennsylvania Lottery continue to generate vital funds that pay for programs which benefit older Pennsylvanians every day.”
The previous record-setting jackpot of more than $2.4 million was won in Columbia County on March 8, 2019.
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.
On March 23, 2021, Cash 5 relaunched as Cash 5 with Quick Cash; the same nightly draw game that players have always enjoyed, but the relaunched game offered an additional chance to instantly win $2 or $6.
The Lottery is 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
