Cash 5 – Prizes & Chances

Important Claim Information: Following the Pennsylvania Lottery’s recent computer system upgrade, we are working to process prize claims that were on hold for processing during the conversion to the new system. The estimated timeframe for claims processing is now between eight and 12 weeks after a claim has been filed and processed at Lottery Headquarters. We appreciate our players’ patience and understanding as our team works as quickly as possible to process claims. We apologize for any inconvenience.

Cash 5 is a jackpot game with an instant win feature called Quick Cash. If more than one person wins the jackpot, the winners will split the Cash 5 jackpot. All Cash 5 Lottery prizes are made as one-time, lump-sum payments. Quick Cash is an instant win game that prints with every Cash 5 ticket and offers a chance to win $2 to $6. Check out the charts below for details on Cash 5 prizes and chances of winning and check out the official Cash 5 Lottery rules.
