Wisconsin Badger 5

The Wisconsin lottery offers a 5 digit draw game called the Wisconsin Badger 5. This is a nightly draw game that is drawn as soon as possible after the 9pm sales cut off time. Tickets are $1 for play board and you can play your numbers up to 7 draws in advance.

You start by filling out a playslip and choosing 5 numbers from 1 to 31 or you can also have the lottery computer choose your numbers with the quick pick option. You can just ask for a quick pick or you can also fill out the QP box on the playslip if you want to play numbers you choose and a quick pick on the same ticket.

The jackpot starts at $10,000 and rolls over by at least $1000 for each drawing that there is no jackpot winner. Most of the time, the jackpot is increased by much more than $1000 as it is based on the projected ticket sales for that drawing. The largest Badger 5 jackpot in Wisconsin history was on June 20th, 2006 and was a whopping $288,000.

You can win cash by matching just 2 of the 5 winning numbers for this game. If you do match 2 of the 5 winning numbers, you would win $1 with odd so 1 in 7. Matching 3 of the 5 winning numbers has 1 in 53 odds with a prize of $2. Odds are 1 in 1,308 to match 4 of the 5 winning numbers and you would win $50. The jackpot odds are 1 in 169,911 and you must match all 5 of your numbers to the winning numbers to win the top prize. If there are multiple winners in one drawing, the jackpot is split among all valid winning tickets.
