Here’s how to double your Cash Blast prize

Categories: Lotto,Players,Prizes

Our 2021 Cash Blast Promotion gives players a weekly chance to win $5,000 or $500, but as one lucky player found out recently, you might be able to double that.

Through April 6, whenever you buy a 2by2 play, you’ll automatically receive a voucher to enter the Cash Blast Promotion. If you buy one play, you’ll get one voucher, buy 10 plays, you’ll get 10 vouchers.

Just like in 2by2, when you buy a ticket in a multiple of seven drawings, you’ll get a chance to double your prize.

One entrant in our March 3 drawing did just that and they turned $500 into $1,000.

If you’re new to 2by2, it works like this: pick two Red numbers between 01 and 26 and two White numbers between 01 and 26 and give your lottery retailer $1. If you match one number, you win a free quick pick play, match two, you win $3. For a three out of four match you get $100 and matching all the Red and White numbers wins you $22,000.

If you purchase a ticket for 7, 14, 21, 28, 35 or any number of consecutive multi-draws selections divisible by 7, you qualify for 2by2 Tuesday. If your numbers win any prize on a Tuesday, that win is automatically doubled up to $44,000 if you match all four numbers.

When you’re qualified for 2by2 Tuesday, you’re qualified for your Cash Blast Promotion prize to be doubled as well.

Entering your voucher—which will automatically print out with your 2by2 ticket—at You’ll have to be a member of our MVP Club, but signing up is fast, free and you’ll get a eCoupon every couple of months. The current eCoupon is good for two free Nebraska Pick 5 plays, so that’s worth signing up for by itself.

Remember, to enter the 2021 Cash Blast Promotion, buy any number of 2by2 tickets, get a voucher for each play you purchase and enter them through the Nebraska Lottery’s MVP Club for a chance to win $500 or $5,000. If you buy 7 draws or more, those prizes double to $1,000 and $10,000.

There are still three weekly drawings, so you’ve got plenty of time to enter. The fifth entry period lasts from March 17 through 23 with a drawing on March 24. The sixth entry period is from March 24 to 30 with a drawing on March 31 and the final entry period lasts from March 31 through April 6 with a drawing on April 8.

  • I have a Question about taxes How much can you win before I have to pay taxes per ticket? If I have ten separate Tickets and each ticket is worth 600.00 would I get ten checks and not have to pay taxes?

    Comment by David E Bauman on November 6, 2022 at 11:11 pm
  • Hi David. Taxes are withheld on prizes over $5,000, and each winning play on a ticket is considered a separate prize for tax purposes. If you have ten $600 winning tickets, we would pay you with one check but no taxes would be withheld. And later you’d receive 10 W-2G forms each showing a $600 prize was claimed.

  • Hey Gang,

    On one of the pages that shows the winning numbers for the previous day, the 2×2 numbers are not showing up. This has been broken for over a month now. It’s on the opening page, or at least on my opening page, of the mobile app (i think). It would be nice if you could get that fixed.
