Lightning Cash

Lightning Cash

Lightning Cash is the electric game that is all about counting the number of Lightning Bolt symbols in the play area on your ticket. If you find 14 or more, you win a prize. The higher the number of Lightning Bolt symbols on a ticket, the larger the prize. You could win up to $50,000 playing this supercharged Print ‘n Play game.

Each Lightning Cash ticket has a play area that is shaped like a lightning bolt. There are different symbols within the play area, but all you have to do is count the number of Lightning Bolt symbols in the play area. Once you have counted them, check the Prize Legend to see if you have won a prize.

Here are the complete how to play instructions from the ticket.

Count up the number of LIGHTNING BOLT symbols that appear in the PLAY AREA above and refer to the PRIZE LEGEND to determine PRIZE won.

Ask your Lottery retailer for a $5 Lightning Cash ticket, or press the Print ‘n Play button on the Lottery Vending Machine – no playslip to fill out, no numbers to choose and no need to wait for a draw.
