What is NJ Cash 5?

NJ Cash 5 is a daily draw game where you try to pick five numbers between 1 and 45 that match the winning numbers drawn to win a cash prize.  You can also select Quick Pick and the random number generator will choose the numbers for you. 

Tickets cost $1 per play and if nobody wins the daily jackpot, it rolls over and is added to the next day’s jackpot.  Cash 5 drawings are held everyday, Sunday through Saturday.  All Jersey Lottery results are available immediately after each drawing.

Add Xtra (optional) to your play to increase non-jackpot prizes.  Xtra costs an additional $1 per play.  If you match three or more of the Cash 5 numbers drawn, your prizes, excluding the jackpot, will be multiplied by the Xtra number.  If you match only two numbers, you win a $2 prize.

What are the New Jersey Cash 5 Draw Times?

Sales cut-off time is 10:53 pm ET the day of the drawing.  Approximately 4 minutes prior to draw time.
