Attention Carolina Cash 5 players: If you want an extra chance to win as much as $50,000 in the third Bonus Bucks drawing, the deadline is coming fast. Cash 5 Bonus Bucks entry slips issued before 11:59 p.m. on Wednesday, March 13 will be valid for the March 20 drawing. In all, five prizes will be awarded: Three $1,000 prizes, one $5,000 prize, and one $50,000 grand prize.
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 of the two following 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, an entry slip will be automatically generated (at no extra cost) along with your separate $5 Carolina Cash 5 ticket. Make sure to get your Cash 5 ticket and your entry slip at the time of purchase – and keep them both. After all, both could make you a winner!
Bonus Bucks entry slips issued after March 13 will be valid for the next drawing. Here is the schedule. Note that the entry deadline and drawing date have been changed for the fourth Bonus Bucks drawing:
- Draw #3 - Entry Deadline: March 13, 2013 Drawing Date: March 20, 2013

To find out the five prize-winning numbers selected in the random drawing, check the Bonus Bucks page on the lottery’s website on March 20, or call the lottery’s customer service hotline at 877-962-7529. Prizes won in the Bonus Bucks drawings must be claimed at one of the lottery’s regional claim centers, or by mail. That means winners’ names will be announced only after that process is completed.
Make sure you’ve got your entries before midnight on Wednesday, and best of luck to all.
