If you cast your mind back to when you first heard about any kind of lottery you probably experienced that feeling of excitement about the possibility of winning an enormous amount of money.
Reading stories of lottery winners in the national press then became common place and the novelty seemed to wear off a little, but it would be fair to say that when you first hear about the Cash4life lotto, you will feel that sense of excitement all over again because it is completely different to any of the other lotto’s that you may be familiar with.
With the Cash4life lotto, the jackpot results in a payout of $1000 per day for the rest of your life, yes, you read that correctly, $1000 per day!
That is over £750 per day at the current exchange rate so it is no wonder that the Cash4life lotto has managed to prick the imagination of lotto players from all over the world.
There is an option of receiving a lump sum instead of the monthly cash prize but it is definitely the daily cash prize which is the main talking point of the Cash4life lotto.
Cash4life is offered by nine state lotteries.
How to play
There is something of a fanfare around Cash4life and to play, all you need to do is choose 6 numbers between 1 -60 (white balls) and 1 number from 1 – 4 (cash balls)
The jackpot for Cash4life is won when a player gets 5 white balls and 1 of the numbers from 1 – 4 (cash ball) but the excitement doesn’t end there.
