NJ Lottery will introduce a new CASH4LIFE game this week

Posted: Updated:

The New Jersey Lottery is teaming up with the New York Lottery to launch the first Northeast regional draw-based “For Life” game, CASH4LIFE, in the two states.

CASH4LIFE offers two jackpot prizes: one is $1000 per day for life, and the other is $1000 a week for the rest of his or her life.

"This is the first draw-based, Northeast regional 'for-life' game," said Judith Drucker, public relations manager of the New Jersey State Lottery. "We're always looking for innovative games to engage and entertain the public."

The NY and NJ Lotteries are holding an event Friday at the Flatiron Public Plaza between 12 and 2 p.m. where the public will have the opportunity to grab some cash out of two money machines on site. The Lottery’s overarching goal is to generate revenue for its beneficiaries, Drucker said.

Lottery beneficiaries include: veterans homes, community and other colleges and universities, school nutrition programs, homes for the developmentally disabled, psychiatric hospitals, higher education scholarship programs and the Marie Katzenbach School for the Deaf. Last fiscal year, the Lottery contributed more than $1 billion to the state.
