NJ Temporarily Suspends Sales and Drawings for 5 Card Cash
TRENTON (April 30, 2020) – Pursuant to action taken from the New Jersey Lottery Commission, the draw game 5 Card Cash will temporarily suspend sales and drawings, effective Monday, May 4, 2020, due to COVID-19.
The temporary suspension of 5 Card Cash is designed to protect the health and safety of Lottery employees and its customers. Not only does this game require two additional staff members to be in the office beyond the teams for other drawings, it does not permit multi-draw play or advance play so purchases are only applicable to the day they are purchased.
Players who bought tickets prior to the game suspension will still have one year following the drawing to claim any prizes won. During this time, the 5 Card Cash “All In” progressive jackpot will remain static and shall continue to be displayed on all media.
The Lottery will keep players informed when the game will resume.
