– The Cash4Life® multi-state game has awarded its ninth $1 million prize in Pennsylvania since the Pennsylvania Lottery joined the game in April 2015.
The Cash4Life® winning-ticket worth $1,000 a week for life, or $1 million cash, was sold in Indiana County for the Wednesday, January 15 drawing.
The ticket correctly matched all five balls drawn, 14-16-18-25-46, but not the green Cash Ball, 4, to win an annuity prize valued at $52,000 a year for life, or a cash prize of $1 million, less applicable tax withholding.
The selling retailer, Rite Aid, 375 Philadelphia St., Indiana, earns a $5,000 bonus.
More than 4,300 other Cash4Life® tickets in Pennsylvania also won prizes in the drawing. Players should check every ticket, every time. Lower-tier prizes may be claimed at a Lottery retailer.
Since 2015, Cash4Life® has generated more than $117 million in sales and players have won more than $43.7 million in prizes. Cash4Life® is also played in surrounding states, including New York, New Jersey, Maryland and Virginia.
Prizes must be claimed and tickets validated before winners can be identified. Cash4Life® winners have one year from the drawing date to claim prizes.
The holder of any annuity prize-winning ticket should immediately sign the back of the ticket, call the Lottery at 1-800-692-7481 and file a claim at Lottery headquarters in Middletown, Dauphin County. Claims may be filed Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
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. Drawings are held every night at 9 p.m. and tickets can be purchased up to 10 draws in advance. Approximate chances of winning: top prize: 1 in 21.8 million; second prize: 1 in 7.3 million; overall/any prize: 1 in 8.
As with any multi-state game, Cash4Life® prizes must be cashed in the state where the winning ticket was sold.
: The Pennsylvania Lottery remains the only state lottery to direct all proceeds to programs
that benefit older residents. Since ticket sales began in 1972, it has contributed more than $30 billion to fund property tax and rent rebates, transportation, care services, prescription assistance, and local services including senior centers and meals.
