Lightning Ball

Badger 5
Lightning Ball

FEBRUARY 1 - 28, 2021  •  LIMITED TIME OFFER

During the month of February, some BADGER 5 plays will be struck by LIGHTNING!
 

In addition to the usual five numbers, an extra number will be printed on one in every three plays statewide. That number is called the “LIGHTNING BALL,” and when it strikes, you can use it to match the winning numbers. You can win by matching at least two of your numbers to the numbers drawn, or by matching just one of your numbers and the LIGHTNING BALL to the numbers drawn.
 

  • Example: If you match three of the five numbers drawn, you win $2. But if a LIGHTNING BALL appears and it also matches one of the numbers drawn, you now match four of five numbers and you win $50 instead!

All LIGHTNING BALLS are quick picks and will never match the other five numbers in the same play. The LIGHTNING BALL counts for any drawings in which that same play is entered.

The LIGHTNING BALL CANNOT be used to win the jackpot. Players who match four of their five numbers and the Lightning Ball win $500.
