*Subject to Dakota Cash rules, all of the prize amounts may vary and become pari-mutuel with each drawing as a result of the amount of dollars played and number of winning tickets at each level. The jackpot prize will be divided equally among multiple winners.

Prizes may be claimed up to 180 days after the date of the drawing in which the prize was won.

And coming in August of 2016...

When tickets become available for sale, you'll be able to add the EZ Match option to your Dakota Cash ticket for just one dollar, making the total cost of a single play Dakota Cash ticket with EZ Match $2. What does that extra buck get you? In addition to the five randomly generated Dakota Cash numbers on your ticket, you'll get five randomly generated EZ Match numbers. These will appear below the Dakota Cash numbers. If any of the EZ Match numbers match any of the Dakota Cash numbers, you instantly win the prize amount shown next to the matched EZ Match numbers.

With the EZ Match option, players can win $2, $3, $5, $10, $15, $20, $50 or $100 INSTANTLY! Can you claim your EZ Match prize right away, without having to wait for the Dakota Cash drawing? You bet you can! That's the whole idea. Be watching for more information on Dakota Cash with EZ Match in the coming weeks.
