5 Star Draw
5 Star Draw offers jackpots of at least $250,000 every Tuesday and Friday night. For one $5 play, you get two chances to win. You just need to select five numbers from 1 to 45 on one half of the play board and another set of five numbers from 1 to 45 on the other half. Alternatively, you can ask for a Quick Pick to get a random selection. If you purchase five plays on one ticket, the fifth one is free, giving you five plays for $20!
You win prizes if your numbers match the winning numbers. Match all five and a payout worth hundreds of thousands dollars could be yours, as the jackpot keeps growing every time it is not won. The following table shows all the different ways to win and the prizes you receive for each one.
