How to Play Cash 5:

Pick up a playslip from your favorite Texas Lottery retail location. The playslip has five play boards (A, B, C, D, and E). You may play 1, 2, 3, 4, or all 5 play boards. Each play board costs $1.

Select five (5) numbers from 1 to 37 in each play board. Or, if you prefer, you can have the terminal randomly pick your numbers. Just mark the "QP" (Quick Pick) box in each play board you want to play, or ask your retailer for a Cash Five Quick Pick. It's that easy!

Mark five numbers on a playboard, using a blue or black pen or pencil.
(Mechanically completed playslips are not permitted and are void.)

If you make a mistake on the playboard, don't erase it. Just mark the 'VOID' box.

Mark the "QP" box if you want the computer to pick your numbers for you.

For added convenience, you can play your Cash Five numbers for up to 12 drawings. Under "Multi Draw" mark the appropriate box. This will play your numbers indicated on play boards "A" through "E" for the number of drawings you select. Multi Draw may be combined with the Advance Play feature. Each play costs $1.

You can choose what day you want to start playing your Cash Five numbers. You can choose any of the five drawings immediately following the current draw. Mark M for Monday, T for Tuesday, W for Wednesday, Th for Thursday, F for Friday or S for Saturday. You can choose only one day.
