Cash 5 Bonus Bucks Drawing

5 Extra Chances To Win Up To $50,000!

The Carolina Cash 5 Bonus Bucks Drawing Promotion begins on September 9, 2012, and gives lottery players an extra chance to win when they purchase $5.00 on a single Cash 5 ticket.

How to Enter

To qualify, you must make a $5 purchase on a single Carolina Cash 5 ticket between Sept. 9, 2012, and July 17, 2013, either by:

  1. Selecting five sets of numbers on one play slip.
  2. Selecting one set of numbers and checking the Multi-Draw box for five draws.

An ENTRY slip will automatically be generated along with your $5 Carolina Cash 5 ticket. RETAIN THIS ENTRY SLIP.

The ENTRY slip has a 9-digit number which will be automatically entered in a Cash 5 Bonus Bucks Drawing. If your 9-digit number is selected, you win. This ENTRY slip must be presented when claiming your Cash 5 Bonus Bucks Drawing prize.


The North Carolina Education Lottery will conduct five (5) separate Bonus Bucks Drawings. Each drawing will award one (1) prize of $50,000, one (1) prize of $5,000 and three (3) prizes of $1,000.
