The new Gopher 5 is Minnesota's own cash lotto game. Winning is as easy as 1-2-3-4-5. Just pick five numbers between 1 and 47. You win by matching three, four or five numbers. And if you match all five, you win a jackpot that starts at $100,000 and grows until someone wins it. The jackpot is paid off with one big check. Now, with the addition of the Bonus Ball, there are even more ways to win and a new $5,000 prize for matching four balls plus the Bonus Ball. In the Bonus Gopher 5 game, you still get five numbers on your ticket. When we do the drawing on Tuesday and Friday night, in addition to drawing five numbers (which you must match to win the jackpot) we draw a sixth number which is called the "Bonus Ball". If four of your numbers match four of the first five numbers drawn, and your fifth number matches the Bonus Ball drawn you win $5,000. If three of your numbers match any three of the first five numbers drawn and one of your other two numbers matches the Bonus Ball drawn you win $100. If two of your numbers match any two of the first five numbers drawn and one of your other three numbers matches the Bonus Ball drawn you win $10. Only $1 per play for a chance at thousands. Approximate odds of winning a cash prize are 1 in 12. Odds of winning the jackpot are approximately 1 in 1,533,939. Overall prize payout increased from 50 percent to 57 percent. Gopher 5 is one of several Minnesota Lottery games. If you have questions about any of them, see the Minnesota Lottery WebSite. You can also see information on previous winners and jackpot sizes.
