5 Card Cash

5 Card Cash is two terminal games in one offered by the Maryland Lottery. It is based on a standard poker game using a 52 card playing deck and combines the excitement of an instant win feature with the fun of a daily evening drawing. Each ticket has a chance to win up to two times — as an Instant Win and in the Daily Drawing.

Ticket Cost: $2 per play

Two Ways To Win On One Ticket

  1. Daily Drawing: Each day, the Lottery will randomly draw 5 cards out of a standard 52 card playing deck. You win if your ticket matches at least 2 of the 5 cards.
  2. Instant Win: You win if the Poker Hand on your ticket shows a pair of Jacks or better.
