Delaware Cash 5 has Lottery players seeing dollar signs
Ticket sales start tomorrow for Delaware’s own Lottery game
Delaware Lottery players can begin purchasing tickets tomorrow for a new $1 Lottery draw game that offers great overall odds of winning and cash jackpots starting at $25,000. DELAWARE CASH 5®, the newest game from the Delaware Lottery, is the second Delaware-exclusive cash jackpot game where the only players who have a chance to win are those who buy tickets at licensed Delaware Lottery retailers.
“DELAWARE CASH 5 offers Delawareans not just great jackpots, but lots of built-in perks,” said Delaware Lottery Director, Wayne Lemons. “We are confident players will enjoy the 1 in 6.5 overall odds of winning, a large number of winners per drawing, the free prize Doubler and impressive starter jackpots that keep rolling until a Delaware Lottery player hits the top prize.”
This five-digit draw game will hold drawings twice a week on Tuesdays and Saturdays beginning this weekend. These draws will coincide with draws of the two large jackpot games available in the state, MEGA MILLIONS® and POWERBALL®. Multi-win Lotto is the other Delaware-only jackpot game sold exclusively at licensed Delaware Lottery retailer locations.
Besides guaranteeing a winner will come from a pool of players in The First State, DELAWARE CASH 5 has a special feature, the Doubler, which gives players a one in seven chance of doubling their prize (except for the jackpot). A random Quick Pick Doubler number will be selected from one to seven for each play purchased. There is no additional cost for this feature.
Since the start of operations in 1975, the Delaware Lottery has contributed more than $3.3 billion to the state’s General Fund to help finance needed state services that benefit everyone in Delaware. The Lottery offers a variety of games: POWERBALL®, MEGA MILLIONS®, HOT LOTTO®, FAST PLAY®, DELAWARE CASH 5®, MULTI-WIN LOTTO, PLAY 3, PLAY 4, and assorted Instant Games. Delaware Lottery game and promotional details are available at delottery.com, at licensed retailers, and from the Lottery's office in Dover.
