Fantasy 5

Fantasy 5 is the FL draw game with a top prize of around $200,000 that rolls down if no one wins it! It’s not just a dream – if two or more of your numbers match the numbers drawn, you win!

There are drawings seven nights a week at around 11:15 PM ET that could make your fantasy a reality. You can buy tickets up until 10:40 PM for that night’s draw. If you miss the cut-off time, don’t worry – you’ll simply be entered into the next evening’s draw.

The jackpot is usually in the neighborhood of $200,000 if won by a single ticket, but the actual amount depends on ticket sales for each drawing and the number of winners in each prize level (this is known as pari-mutuel).

What is a jackpot rolldown? If no one wins the top prize, the money in its pool “rolls down” and gets shared equally between winners in the 4-of-5 prize tier, up to a maximum amount of $555 per winner. If there’s still money left over, the extra cash rolls down another level and winners in the 3-of-5 prize category share it equally.

If you win in the 2-of-5 level, matching two out of five winning numbers, you won’t go home empty-handed either – the Lottery terminal will automatically print a free Quick Pick ticket for the next drawing.

How to Play Fantasy 5

Playing is easy. Your playslip has 10 panels, labeled A-J. Each panel equals one play. For each panel you want to play, choose five numbers from 1-36, or use Quick Pick to have the terminal generate your numbers at random. Each play costs $1.

For $1 more per play, you can add EZmatch for a chance to win a cash prize on the spot. You can also mark the EZmatch box on the top left of the playslip to add EZmatch to all the panels you wish to play. For each panel where you have selected EZmatch, you’ll get a separate ticket with both your Fantasy 5 and EZmatch numbers (see below for more on EZmatch).

Do you want to play your lucky numbers for more than one draw? Just mark the number of future draws you’d like in the Advance Play section of the playslip.

During the nightly drawing, five numbers out of 36 are drawn. If your five numbers match the winning numbers, you win the top prize! Match four, three or even two of the numbers drawn and you’ll win other cash prizes or a free ticket. All cash prizes are paid in a single payment.

EZmatch adds an extra five numbers to your ticket, below your Fantasy 5 numbers. Each EZmatch number has a dollar value printed next to it. If any of your EZmatch numbers match any of your Fantasy 5 numbers, you instantly win the total cash amount of the matching number(s) as shown on the ticket.
