Virginia Lottery introduces Cash4Life game
Imagine receiving $1,000 every day for the rest of your life. That’s the top prize in the Virginia Lottery’s Cash4Life®, with tickets now available at all Virginia Lottery retailers. The first drawing is today, May 4.
Cash4Life is a draw game in which players try to match five out of 60 numbers, plus one out of four CashBall numbers. A player who matches all six numbers wins the top prize.
The second prize, for matching the first five numbers but not the CashBall number, is $1,000 per week for the rest of the winner’s life.
“We’re excited to offer Cash4Life to Virginia Lottery players,” said Virginia Lottery Executive Director Paula Otto. “The exciting top prize in this game has gone over well with players in other states. And of course, every Cash4Life ticket bought in Virginia, win or lose, will help generate funds for K-12 public education in the Commonwealth.”
Cash4Life will replace Decades of Dollars, which will end a successful four-year run in Virginia.
Cash4Life is currently played in New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania. Drawings are held Monday and Thursday evenings at 9:00 p.m. Tickets must be purchased by 8:45 p.m. to be included in that night’s drawing. Each play costs $2. The odds of winning the top prize are 1 in 21.8 million. The odds of winning the second prize are 1 in 7.2 million.
If a winner prefers not to have a lifetime of prize payments, he or she can opt for a one-time cash option of $7 million for the top prize, or $1 million for the second prize.
