Daily drawing has overall odds of 1 in 15
Olympia, Wash. (October 18, 2023) – All it takes is one POP to win! Washington’s Lottery today announced that for the first time in 15 years, it is launching a new statewide daily draw game, Cash POP, which debuts October 23. Players select one or multiple POP(s) from numbers ranging from 1 to 15. Each POP selected costs $5 and potential prizes for selected POP(s) range between $25 and $500. The potential cash prize for each POP selected will be randomly generated and printed on each player’s ticket at the time of purchase. When the daily drawing takes place, those players who have the winning POP will win the prize shown on their ticket.
“We are thrilled to add Cash POP as our newest draw game,” said Joshua Johnston, Director of Washington’s Lottery. “On top of being simple to play and accessible, all of the prizes for Cash POP can be easily redeemed at authorized retailers across the state at any time. That’s a really great feature for our players who value convenience.”
To play Cash POP, players pick a POP, selecting a number ranging from 1 to 15. Each POP selected costs $5. Players can choose their own POP or chose the QuickPick option. Players can select up to 15 POP(s) per ticket for a guaranteed prize. Once a player has chosen their POP(s), they can choose to use their POP for up to five consecutive draws. Selected POP(s) for each drawing chosen will print out on separate tickets. The total ticket cost for each player will be determined by multiplying the $5 cost per POP by the number of POP(s) selected, and then multiplying that number by the number of consecutive drawings chosen.
A player’s potential cash prize will appear on the printed ticket directly under each selected POP at the time of the purchase. The overall odds of winning a Cash POP prize are 1 in 15. Cash POP tickets are non-cancellable due to the prize amount being printed on the ticket at time of purchase.
“We love to shake things up and give our players something to look forward to, so we’re sure that they’ll enjoy the new type of play that Cash POP offers,” said Johnston. “The game’s design also makes for a fun introduction to draw games for those who have never played the Lottery before, so anyone can enjoy it.”
Cash POP will draw each night at 8:00 p.m. PT. Ticket sales are cut-off every night at 7:45 p.m. PT and resume at 7:46 p.m. for the following night’s drawing.
The most recent statewide draw game introduced by Washington’s Lottery was Match 4 in 2008. Washington’s Lottery also added Powerball to its roster of games in 2010, though it is a multi-state game, whereas Match 4 and Cash POP are only available for play in Washington.

Making a Difference in Washington State
Since 1982, Washington’s Lottery has generated more than $4.5 billion to support several important state programs, including providing much-needed funds for the Washington Opportunity Pathways Account (WOPA). In FY21, WOPA received $185.7 million from the Lottery, enough to pay college tuition for more than 18,000 Washington residents. It also provided approximately 25% of the annual budget for the state’s Early Childhood Education and Assistance Program, which provides critical services to more than 15,000 children at 440 locations across Washington.
Washington’s Lottery Beneficiary Fact – April 2022
Washington’s Lottery is very proud to be a financial supporter of the state’s Early Childhood Education & Assistance Program (ECEAP). The $40 million annual investment the lottery makes in ECEAP has lasting effects. Children who participate in ECEAP are more likely to be kindergarten-ready than non-participants, and those who participate five or more hours per day are especially prepared in reading and math.* Children in state-funded pre-K programs like ECEAP see long-lasting positive effects, including increased grade progression, high school graduation and college enrollment.**
