UPDATE: July 15, 2014 – After a month of Cash 4 Life drawings, two winners have already won the game’s $1,000-a-day top prize, and two others have scored the second prize, worth $1,000 a week for life.  Read more about the first month of Cash 4 Life drawings here.


June 17, 2014 – The New Jersey and New York lotteries kicked off their new multi-state game “Cash 4 Life” Monday; the game’s very first drawing was held just before 9 p.m. last night.

The winning numbers in the first-ever Cash 4 Life drawing were 9, 36, 44, 53, 59 and the sixth number – the Cash Ball – was 3.

There were no tickets sold in either state that matched all six winning numbers to win the game’s top prize, which is worth $1,000 every day for life.

Nobody won a second prize either, which is also structured as life-long payouts of $1,000 per week, or $52,000 each year.

Though nobody was able to win the two top prizes, there were more than 57,000 Cash 4 Life winners made in the first drawing.  Together, those winning tickets are worth about $254,000.

And while nobody had the luck to win cash for life, there were six players who won third prizes for matching four white numbers and the Cash Ball.  Each will receive a $2,500 prize.

And another 15 players scored $500 fourth prizes after they matched four white numbers, missing just two of the winning numbers drawn.

The new game was announced in May, and ticket sales started Friday, June 13.  Cash 4 Life drawings are held in New Jersey every Monday and Thursday night just before 9 p.m., and while the game is currently only available in New Jersey and New York, it could be introduced in several other states next year.  Click here to read more about Cash 4 Life.
