NCEL - $674,000 Carolina Cash 5 prize approaching 2011 record level
- Jackpots for Mega Millions and Powerball games also continue to grow -
- Pair of $1 million tickets for April drawings remain unclaimed -
RALEIGH - The Carolina Cash 5 top prize has reached an estimated $674,000 for tonight's drawing. If a single ticket matches all five numbers to win tonight's top prize, it would represent the second largest Cash 5 win of 2011. At the current rate of growth, if no ticket matches all five numbers in tonight’s drawing, the top prize could grow to the largest seen all year.

The top prize has been growing for ten straight draws since it was last won on April 21. The winner of that drawing, John Grabski of Charlotte, currently has the biggest Cash 5 win of the year at $773,609. A dozen other players have won more than $100,000 playing Cash 5 this year. 2011 winners of Carolina Cash 5's top prize have won more than $4.7 million.

Carolina Cash 5 is a number matching game played only in North Carolina. It is similar to the multistate jackpot games Powerball and Mega Millions because the top prize grows until one or more tickets match every number in a drawing. The jackpots for those multistate games continue to grow as well. Tuesday’s Mega Millions jackpot is an estimated $51 million if taken as an annuity or $32.3 million as a lump sum payment. Wednesday’s Powerball jackpot is an estimated $36 million if taken as an annuity or $18.5 million as a lump sum.

In the Friday, April 29 Mega Millions drawing, a total of 11,583 players won prizes ranging from $2 to $10,000 for a total payout of $98,353. In the Saturday, April 30 Powerball drawing, a total of 27,343 players won prizes ranging from $3 to $10,000 for a total payout of $162,823.

Two $1 million Powerball tickets sold in April have yet to be claimed. A ticket for the Saturday, April 9 drawing was sold at Ms. Sudy's on Clinton Road in Fayetteville. A ticket for the Wednesday, April 27 drawing was sold at New Bern Station on New Bern Avenue in Raleigh. Whoever has the winning tickets has 180 days from the date of the drawing to claim their prize.

The North Carolina Education Lottery has paid out more than $6.3 million in instant scratch-off ticket prizes since Thursday, April 28. Carolina Pick 3 players have won more than $970,000. Carolina Pick 4 players have won more than $352,000 including 13 tickets that won the top prize of $5,000. Carolina Cash 5 players have won more than $261,000.
