Bigger Jackpots Coming to Jersey Cash 5
Big Changes Include $100,000 Starting Jackpots, Later Drawings Give More Time to Get in the Game
TRENTON (June 24, 2020) – The New Jersey Lottery is refreshing Jersey Cash 5 starting June 29 with a new draw time, more numbers to choose from, and bigger starting jackpots – increasing from an estimated $75,000 to a guaranteed $100,000!
In the enhanced Jersey Cash 5 game, players will select five numbers from 1 to 45 for a chance at the new higher jackpot pool. Currently, players choose five numbers from 1 to 43.
Additionally, the New Jersey Lottery evening drawings are moving from 7:57 p.m. to 10:57 p.m. daily. New Jersey Lottery Executive Director James Carey announced that starting June 29 Jersey Cash 5 will be drawn later in the evening, alongside Pick-3, Pick-4, and Pick-6, to allow players more time and opportunity to get their tickets for their favorite games.
“The new numbers matrix allows the New Jersey Lottery to offer bigger, guaranteed, jackpots to our loyal Jersey Cash 5 players,” said Executive Director Carey. “In 2019, we awarded jackpot prizes to more than 150 winners. With this change, we will still be able to award plenty of jackpots to players in the Garden State while ensuring the jackpots start bigger and climb faster.”
Evening drawings can be watched from anywhere. Midday and evening drawings can be watched live on the Lottery’s Facebook page or at NJLottery.com While drawings will no longer air on WPIX-11 and WPHL-17, they will still be videotaped with independent auditors on site for each drawing. Mega Millions and Powerball drawings will still be aired on WABC-TV and WTXF stations.
