Cash4Life® Advance Draw Options to Taper Temporarily Ahead of Nightly Drawings

Cash4Life® Advance Draw Options to Taper Temporarily Ahead of Nightly Drawings
Middletown, PA – The multi-state Cash4Life® game will be drawn every night beginning July 1, 2019. In preparation for this change, fewer advance draws are currently available for any purchase.
Prior to Monday, May 27, players could purchase Cash4Life tickets for up to five weeks, or 10 drawings, in advance. After May 27, the number of available advance draws started to decrease by one and will continue to do so from 10 until the last drawing under the current game design on Thursday, June 27. 
On Monday, July 1 the original 10 advance draw, now 10 days, feature will again be available. 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.
How to play Cash4Life: Each play costs $2. Players choose five numbers from 1-60 and one number from 1-4, the green Cash Ball. Players may choose their own numbers using a playslip or opt for computer-selected Quick Pick numbers. Cash4Life offers a top prize of $1,000 a day for life, a second prize of $1,000 a week for life, plus seven other ways to win. Approximate chances of winning: top prize: 1 in 21.8 million; second prize: 1 in 7.3 million; overall/any prize: 1 in 8.
Cash4Life is also played in New York, New Jersey and Virginia. As with any multi-state game, all prizes must be cashed in the state where the winning ticket was sold.
