Cash4Life® to be drawn nightly
The multi-state Cash4Life® Lottery game will be drawn seven nights a week, starting Monday, July 1, 2019.
The game’s $2 ticket price will not change and the prizes will remain the same with a top prize of $1,000 a day for life, and a secondary prize of $1,000 a week for life. The old playslips will continue to work after the change, and up to 10 advance draws will remain in place. There will be no changes to how the game is played or the chances of winning.
“By moving Cash4Life® to nightly drawings, we’ll give players more opportunities to win,” said Pennsylvania Lottery Executive Director Drew Svitko. “Additionally, by offering this draw game nightly, we’ll be able to generate more funds for the vital senior programs that Pennsylvania’s older population relies on every day.”
Since the Pennsylvania Lottery joined the multi-state Cash4Life® game in April 2015, it has generated more than $100 million in sales and players have won more than $36.7 million in prizes. Cash4Life® is also played in surrounding states, including New York, New Jersey, Maryland and Virginia.
As with any multi-state game, all prizes must be cashed in the state where the winning ticket was purchased. The prize must be claimed and the ticket validated before the winner can be identified. Cash4Life® winners in Pennsylvania have one year from the drawing date to claim prizes. To view live drawings visit palottery.com.
