Cash4Life was collaboratively designed by the New York Lottery and New Jersey Lottery. The first Cash4Life tickets went on sale on June 13, 2014. The first Cash4Life draw was held on June 16.
Draws are held every night at 9:00 p.m. ET.
Draws are held in Lawrenceville, New Jersey.
You can play Cash4Life in nine states: Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Maryland, Missouri, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and Tennessee.
Pick five numbers from 1 to 60 and a sixth Cash Ball from 1 to 4, or opt for Quick Pick to get random numbers. Choose how many draws to enter. Check if you’ve won.
The Cash Ball is the sixth ball, with a value between 1 and 4. Matching this number can add more prizes.
The top prize is $1,000 a day for life (paid out annually).
Top and second prize winners can choose a one-time cash option or an annuity option, in which they receive annual payments for a minimum of 20 years. In some cases in which there are multiple winners, the prize amount will be divided equally among them.
The annuity takes into consideration not only the cash value of the prize but also the interest that it will generate over time.
You have a 1 in 21,846,048 chance of winning the Cash4Life top prize.
