How to Play Fantasy 5

You will need to have five numbers in your mind that range between one to 39. You have the option to allow the machine to choose for you if you do not care what those numbers are. There are more features like Double Play that could provide additional winning opportunities.

Double Play will use the same numbers you just selected for an instant second drawing by paying an additional dollar. The jackpot is slightly different here for correctly matching all five numbers, which would win you $110,000.

The other option you could use for your ticket is EZmatch for another dollar. If you decide that your ticket needs this, then it will randomly choose a number that you have to match it with once it is drawn. These prizes will vary all the way up to $500.

Odds, Price, and Prizes for Fantasy 5

The odds for Fantasy 5 are typically one in nine to win a prize. The odds will be slightly different from one player to the next since you are able to buy additional features to add onto your ticket, or you can choose to purchase another ticket.

The EZ Match offers the best option to win a prize because the odds are one in five. If you choose to buy an additional ticket, this would slightly increase your chances if you have the budget that allows it.

The regular draw showcases prizes of $1, $10, $100, and then the current jackpot at the time of your purchase. The Double Play showcases the same exact odds as the regular draw, with the prize amounts doubled ($2, $20, $200).
