Attention Carolina Cash 5 players: If you want an extra chance to win as much as $50,000, don't miss the deadline for the next Bonus Bucks drawing. Cash 5 Bonus Bucks entry slips issued before 11:59 p.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 18 will be valid for the Oct. 2 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. Bonus Bucks entry slips issued after Sept. 18 will be valid for the next drawing, which will be held on Dec. 4.
To find out the five prize-winning numbers selected in the random drawing, check the Bonus Bucks page on the lottery’s website on Oct. 2, 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.
