How to Play:
Just follow these simple steps to play Cash 5:
- Ask any Cash 5 retailer for a Quick Pick, or pick up a play slip and mark your 5 lucky numbers between 1 and 32.
- Cash 5 drawings are conducted every Monday through Saturday at approximately 7:35 p.m. in Pueblo, CO.
- Match 2, 3, 4 or 5 of the 5 numbers drawn by the Lottery and you win. (See amounts at right.)
- When you win, you win the full prize. The only exception is if more than 10 people win the $20,000 Grand Prize in a single drawing. Then all Grand Prize winners will receive an equal share of $200,000. If you match 2, 3 or 4 numbers, you always win the full amount.
How to Claim a Prize:
Immediately sign the back of your ticket. To claim all $1 and $10 prizes, simply present your ticket at any Cash 5 retailer within 180 days of the drawing. You may begin claiming winning tickets the morning following the drawing. You can claim your $200 winners at participating retailers, by visiting one of the Lottery offices, or by mailing your ticket to a Lottery office.
