Simple question, if you have 5 sets on numbers on one ticket and play that ticket for 8 days and out of those 8 days 3 of those numbers win, do you get all 3 prizes? Another example would be your playing pick 5 and one day 3 of your numbers come up but then the next day all 5 do.

    Each day you have winning numbers on your ticket you would win that prize. I have had that with Cash 5 in Tx where I'll play the same numbers on one tic for a week and have a winner on 2 or 3 draws.

      Yes. You win the prize paid for whatever matches you have each day, even on advanced plays. When you turn in an advance play ticket, every

      win is calculated beginning with the first day of play you purchased it for.

      Just keep track of what you won each day so it matches what they come up with.

        You can also cash it in whenever you want and they'll give you an exchange ticket for the rest of the draws remaining.

          You don't play "tickets", you play "games". You can win only one prize per game, but you can play multiple games on one ticket.  I would assume your description of "5 sets of numbers on one ticket and play that ticket for 8 days" means that the "ticket" costs 40 times as much as it would cost to play 1 set of numbers for 1 day. In that case you've played 40 different games (5 games for each of the 8 days), in which case you can theoretically win all 40 games.

          Some games include more than 1 set of numbers for a single game. For NY lotto you pick 2 sets of 6 numbers for each $1 game. Suppose you played 1,2,3,4,5,6 for the first line and 4,5,6,7,8,9 for the second line. If the winning numbers were 1,5,6,7,8,9 you'd have matched 3 numbers with the first line and 5 numbers with the second line. Since it's only one game and you can only win one prize per game you'd win the prize for matching 5 numbers, but not 3.

            Well, I guess there's some lesson there...but I think you misunderstood.

            I understood what the OP meant. Easy.

            I've done it many times.

            Play 5 tickets/games/lines/sets of numbers/selections/favorites/birthday numbers/shoe size, pant size, shirt size, hat size...doesn't matter

            what you call it....they are tickets you buy for a game.

            OH whatever...the OP meant s/he is playing 5 lines for 8 days.

            If you win Tuesday with 2 numbers....Wednesday with 4 numbers....don't win Thursday and continue on through the remainder of your advance

            play and win each of those days with 2 numbers...THEY PAY THEM ALL.

            You certainly don't win 3 & 5 numbers on ONE LINE.

            But with 5 lines you can have a 5 number winner and a 3 number winner on the same draw because you have 5 lines for each draw.

            Your wins are just on different lines...and can be on different days/draws.

              If I understand your post then yes you can win on the same ticket.  I have  an advance play ticket that I didnt redeem until three days later during which time it won a 3 of 5  one one day and a replay on a different day, same advanced play ticket.

                It might be wise to fill out extra bet slips , so you don't go over the taxable limit.
