How to Play Fantasy 5

If you have five numbers between one and 39 in mind, that is exactly what is needed to start playing Fantasy 5. You could also have the machine pick for you if you are undecided. There are some extra features like Double Play that can provide extra winning opportunities.

Double Play will use the same numbers once again for an instant second drawing. The jackpot is a set amount here, coming in at $110,000. Not bad for an extra dollar and another chance to play.

The other feature to consider is EZmatch. At the time of purchase, it will randomly print out a number that you have to match with the one that is drawn. These prizes will vary but top out at $500.

Odds, Price, and Prizes for Fantasy 5

Odds are somewhat all over the place here, with prizes typically favored one in nine to win something. The odds are going to vary since you can add more features or choose to buy another ticket.

The EZ Match prize is the best bet at trying to land a prize, with odds at one in five. Purchasing a second ticket is great if you want to beef up your chances, but only if your budget has room.

The regular draw features prizes of $1, $10, $100, and the current jackpot at the time of purchase. The Double Play has the same odds as the regular draw, but prize amounts are doubled ($2, $20, $200).

Below are the EZmatch prizes and odds:

Prize Odds
$500 1:84,000
$250 1:42,000
$100 1:14,000
$50 1:4,942
$20 1:2,100
$15 1:1,293
$10 1:132
$5 1:280
