Georgia Lottery: Results, Winning Numbers, and General Information
About the Georgia Lottery
The Georgia Lottery was created in 1992 with the purpose of raising funds to support the state of Georgia. Since then, it has generated over $70 billion in sales, and contributed more than $20 billion of that towards funding educational programs. These programs provide tuition grants, scholarships, loans, and so on, to students in Georgia.

Georgia Lottery Games and Drawing Schedule
Georgia’s daily jackpot game, Fantasy 5 features a 5/42 matrix with very simple mechanics. Just match anywhere from 2 to 5 numbers, and win a prize. The grand prize jackpot starts at $125,000 and grows every draw until it’s won. And with the Cash Match game mode, there’s even more ways of winning!
Fantasy 5 drawings are held everyday at 11:34 PM ET.
Jumbo Bucks Lotto is Georgia’s biggest lottery game, with a rolling jackpot that starts at a whopping $1 million. It features a traditional 6/47 matrix and also the Cash Match option. Drawings are held every Monday and Thursday, at 11:00 PM ET.
The Georgia Lottery also hosts the ever popular game Keno, complete with Multiplier and Bulls-Eye options for more ways of winning. KENO! drawings are held everyday every 3.5 minutes.
Always a crowd favorite, Cash4Life gives players the chance to win up to $1,000 every day for life. Just pick 5 base numbers from 1 to 60, and a bonus ball from 1 to 4.
Georgia Lottery Cash4Life drawings take place every Monday and Thursday at 9:00 PM ET.
If you’re familiar with Pick 3 games then Cash 3 is Georgia’s version of that. Players have to pick a number from 000 to 999 and then choose how they’d like to play – whether by matching the draw in exact order, any order, combo, or by matching the front or back pair. Prizes go as high as $500 and drawings are held three times a day, seven days a week at 12:29 PM, 6:59 PM, and 11:34 PM ET.
Cash 4 is Georgia’s version of Pick 4. It’s very similar to Cash 3, but players have to form a four digit combination, meaning a number pool from 0000 to 9999. The maximum prize is $5,000 and drawings are held three times a day, seven days a week at 12:29 PM, 6:59 PM, and 11:34 PM ET.
Georgia Five rewards players with up to $10,000 and there are 15 ways of winning! To play, you essentially have to pick a 5 digit number from 00000 to 99999. You win the top prize if you match the draw exactly, and secondary prizes for other combinations. Drawings are held two times a day, everyday, at 12:29 PM and 6:59 PM ET.
All or Nothing
In All or Nothing, you pick 12 numbers from 1 to 24, and win the top prize of $250,000 if you match all or none of the numbers. Secondary prizes are also awarded, depending on how many numbers you match. Drawings are held everyday, four times, at 10:00 AM, 2:00 PM, 6:00 PM, and 10:00 PM ET.
5 Card Cash
5 Card Cash combines the lottery and poker in one exciting game. You don’t have to choose any numbers to play. Instead, when you buy a 5 Card Cash ticket, you will automatically be dealt a random five-card hand which will be printed on your ticket. If you form a winning poker hand, you can win up to $5,000 instantly. Your ticket will also qualify you for the daily drawing. And if you match the cards drawn, you can win up to $150,000.
5 Card Cash drawings are held everyday at 6:45 PM ET.
