How to Play

Pick up a playslip from your favorite Texas Lottery® retail location. The playslip has five playboards (A, B, C, D, and E). You may play 1, 2, 3, 4, or all 5 playboards. Each playboard costs $1.

Select five (5) numbers from 1 to 35 in each playboard. Or, if you prefer, you can have the terminal pick your numbers. Just mark the "QP" (Quick Pick) box in each playboard you want to play, or ask your retailer for a Cash Five Quick Pick. It's that easy!

How to Mark the Playslip

Cash Five Playslip

Mark five numbers on a playboard, using a blue or black pen or pencil.
(Mechanically completed playslips are not permitted and are void.)

Void Box

If you make a mistake on the playboard, don't erase it. Just mark the 'VOID' box.

Quick Pick

Mark the "QP" box if you want the computer to pick your numbers for you.


For added convenience, you can play your Cash Five numbers for up to 12 drawings. Under "Multi-Draw" mark the appropriate box. This will play your numbers indicated on playboards "A" through "E" for the number of drawings you select. Each play costs $1.
