WITH THE NEW CASH4LIFE® DRAW GAME
TALLAHASSEE - The Lottery announced today that Florida has become the first state to have two life changing $1,000 A Week for Life winners within the first six weeks of launching its newest Draw game, CASH4LIFE®. Since the game launched on February 17, Florida has had 10 drawings with a total of $4.8 million in prizes and more than 600,000 winners statewide. Additionally, CASH4LIFE sales have generated $3.4 million for the state's Educational Enhancement Trust Fund (EETF).
"Our goal with introducing CASH4LIFE was to provide our players with new and exciting ways to win; increase commissions for our retailers; and raise millions of additional dollars for Florida's students and schools," said Lottery Secretary Tom Delacenserie. "We are happy that our players are enjoying the new game and that it's creating winning moments for players statewide."
Each CASH4LIFE ticket costs $2 to play; players choose six numbers, five white ball numbers from 1 through 60 and a Cash Ball number from 1 through 4. There are nine exciting ways to win in the game. Offering two life changing top prizes including a $1,000 a Day for Life top prize and a $1,000 a Week for Life second prize, plus seven other prize levels with prizes ranging from $2 to $2,500, there's something for every level of player to enjoy!
