Palmetto Cash 5 is a five-number game from the South Carolina Education Lottery. There are four ways to win prizes from $1 up to $100,000. Players have the option of spending an extra dollar per play for the chance to multiply all prizes by the Power-Up number drawn 2, 3, 4, or 5 times. The price of each play is $1. Purchasing the Power-Up multiplier option increases the price for each play from $1 to $2.
