Deadline nears for $50,000 Bonus Bucks drawing

9:21 AM


The clock is ticking.

Carolina Cash 5 players who want a chance to win $50,000 in the next Bonus Bucks drawing have until 11:59 p.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 20 to enter. The drawing will be held on Dec. 4 and it’s easy to be eligible to win.

To get any entry slip for a Bonus Bucks drawing, make a $5 Cash 5 purchase in one two ways:

  • Select five sets of numbers for one drawing on a single ticket purchase
  • Choose one set of numbers for five drawings on a single ticket purchase

When you do this, you’ll get your $5 Carolina Cash 5 ticket and a separate Bonus Bucks entry slip will be automatically generated - at no extra cost. Each entry slip has a 9-digit number.

If the number on your entry slip matches one of the winning numbers in the Bonus Bucks drawing, you win a prize. For each drawing, five prizes will be awarded: three $1,000 prizes, one $5,000 prize, and one $50,000 grand prize. After the drawing, check the Bonus Bucks page on the lottery’s website to find out if you’re a winner.

Bonus Bucks entry slips issued after Nov. 20 will be valid for the next drawing, which is scheduled for Feb. 5, 2014.

Get your entries in before the deadline for a chance to win some “Bonus” cash!

@ PLAYER (ricky3107) - Sorry you didn't get the info you needed from a lottery retailer. But if you purchased five Cash 5 tickets and qualified for a free entry in a Bonus Bucks drawing, your entry is automatically entered. So that cut-off date doesn't effect your entry, only which drawing you are in. Your entry should be in the Dec. 4 drawing so please check it against the winning numbers to see if you have won. Also, anyone who got a Bonus Buck entry after Nov. 20, the entry would be for the Feb. 5 drawing. If you don't get the help you need from a lottery retailer, please call our Customer Services helpline, 1 877 962-7529, Mondays through Friday, between the hours of 8 a.m. and 5:30 p.m. and we have someone who can help you.

JJWalker - Please remember that the lottery is for entertainment purposes. If you're not having fun playing,it may be time to take a break.

It would be nice for retailers to know in advance what the cut-off date is for the upcoming bonus drawing. For example, I have one entry for the December 4, 2013 drawing and didn't know the cut-off date was November 20th until I saw it on this website. Also, I saw a customer on 11/23/13 receive a bonus entry but it's for the February 4, 2014 drawing. Thanks.

I'm on the verge of losing either my house or my car. Sure could use this money! Doesn't seem like to many people from the Charlotte area win these though. :(

Thanks a lot and love the way you guys give us a second chance even if we lose on tickets

@ BBECK - The winners in the PS4 drawing actually have not yet been notified, and it may be until Monday before the first notification e-mails go out. So... fingers crossed, good luck to you!!

On 11/22/2013 09:58, Bbeck said

Have the PS4 winners already been notified? I was really looking towards to winning one would be AWESOME

@ TAMMY - If you mean to enter tickets for Lucke-Rewards points, just click on "LUCKE-REWARDS" at the top of the screen. If you're referring to your Bonus Bucks entry slip, your entry number is not something you enter anywhere. You just wait until the drawing has been held, then check our website for the winning entry numbers. And if yours matches, you win a prize! Good luck :-)

@ PLAYER (NC0000001) - Bonus Bucks winners labeled at "TBD" means that the prize can still be claimed, but we don't know who the winner is. A Bonus Bucks prize labeled as "unclaimed" means the claim deadline has passed. When that happens, half the money goes to benefit education, and the other half goes back into the prize pool that players can win in future games :-)

On 11/21/2013 10:02, Lucke-Zone said

@ PLAYER (DOTD) - A Bonus Bucks entry slip is only valid for one drawing. You can click on the "Bonus Bucks" page on our website for all the entry deadlines.

I just ran out and got a set of five numbers...and if either of my last two entry slips win, they will have dog teeth marks on them! Ha--my dog almost ate those!

On 11/20/2013 05:53, Player said

After taking of the tenth and pay off debts will be a blessing.

It is a pleasure just to play, and at least I am back home from the sand box again. Who knows I might it big and do not have to go back, but I am ready to leave on the 3rd of DEC anyway. Semper Fi...

Can none winning lottery tickets be used for tax towards a win. If yes, how many can use towards 25% and 7%

On 11/19/2013 03:42, saunasuitdude said

I have 5 chances (papers) that I bought the Pick 5 for the Bonus game. when I purchased them, were the no.s already entered, and where will the picked no.s show up? or do I have another place on website to enter them?

On 11/19/2013 11:05, Player said

All in good luck to everyone

On 11/19/2013 10:35, Lucke-Zone said

@ PLAYER (JOURNEYMAN25) - No. Prizes are subject to required estimated withholdings. For prizes of $5000 or more, that's 7% state and 25% federal.

Are prizes like these taxed already?
