“When I saw that my numbers matched, I just stared at them,” he said as he claimed his prize. “I didn’t say a word. I just stared at them.”


“You never think you’re going to win. Then it happens.”

That’s how Michael Seawood described his feelings as he claimed the $100,000 top prize in the Virginia Lottery’s Cash 5 game


The first clue Richard Hudson got that he’d won big in the Virginia Lottery was when the store clerk told him he couldn’t cash his ticket because the prize was greater than $600


Cash 5 has all the look and feel of a classic lotto game, including a $100,000 jackpot. But, throw in two drawings a day and the 25¢ minimum play, and you'll soon realize this isn't your daddy's lottery game! Classic feel, modern features…get in the game with Cash 5 today!

play options

  • Want to play the same numbers for more than one draw on a single ticket? Well, you can! A MULTI-DRAW ticket lets you play up to 91 consecutive draws on one ticket. Please keep in mind that the ticket price increases for each draw you add.
  • Thinking ahead to a special date? You can buy a ticket for one future draw date. It's called a FUTURE draw. Simply mark the OPTIONAL PLAYS box on your playslip and let the store clerk know which future draw date you have in mind.
  • Love those numbers so much you want them on more than one ticket? You can REPEAT your play and have the same numbers printed on more than one ticket up to 20 times.

14 chances to win every week

  • Cash 5 numbers are drawn twice a day, seven days a week. We have a little break between selling and drawing the numbers, so you can't buy tickets starting at 1:53 PM for that day's draw and again starting at 10:45 PM for that night's draw - just something to keep in mind if you're playing close to draw time.

watch the draws

You can watch the draws live twice a day at 1:59 PM and 11:00 PM by clicking the View Winning Numbers tab at the top of the page or by visiting us on Facebook.com/valottery.com. You can even watch them later…draws stay on our site!
