BONUS CASH FRIDAYS FROM THE FLORIDA LOTTERY
ARE BACK FOR A LIMITED TIME
TALLAHASSEE - Beginning today, the Florida Lottery is excited to announce the third annual Bonus Cash Fridays Promotion! Every Friday in September, the FANTASY 5® prize pool will be increased to include 50% more cash available for prizes.
Each Friday during the promotion, FANTASY 5 payouts will increase for matching 3-of-5, 4-of-5, and 5-of-5 numbers. The prize for matching 2-of-5 will remain one free FANTASY 5 Quick Pick ticket. EZmatch™ prizes are not included in this promotion.
FANTASY 5 is a pari-mutuel game in which players win the top prize by matching 5-of-5 winning numbers drawn in any order. Additionally, players win cash prizes or a free Quick Pick ticket by matching two, three or four of the numbers drawn in the official drawing for the date played. If there is no top prize winner, the money in the top prize pool rolls down and is shared among players who match 4-of-5 or 3-of-5 winning numbers.
Since FANTASY 5 was introduced in 1989, the game has generated more than $3.6 billion for education, and has awarded more than $4.6 billion in prizes to 903 million players. Ticket sales total more than $9.2 billion - including over $245 million in FY 2019-20.
