Kentucky Cash Ball FAQs

Q: Is it possible for the Cash Ball number to be the same as one of the five white ball numbers?

A: Yes. The four white ball numbers and the one Cash Ball number are drawn from separate sets of balls, so the Cash Ball number could be the same as one of the white ball numbers.

Q: Which has better odds — picking my own numbers or requesting a Quick Pick?

A: Whether you pick your own numbers or have the terminal randomly select numbers for you, the odds of winning are the same.

Q: How much do CashBall tickets cost?

A: Tickets cost $1 per play.

Q: Can I purchase Cash Ball tickets in advance?

A: To play multiple upcoming draws, request from 2 to 21 Multi Draws either on the playslip or through the retailer. Multi Draws will include the next upcoming draw and be consecutive from that draw. Draws cannot be skipped.

Q: Do KY Cash Ball tickets expire?

A: Prizes must be claimed within 180 days of the draw date on which the prize was won.

Q: Do I have to match the numbers in the exact order drawn?

A: No. The order of the white ball numbers drawn does not matter, but the one Cash Ball must match the Cash Ball number on the ticket.
