With bi-weekly draws, New Jersey Cash4Life winning numbers are announced every Monday and Thursday at 9:00 PM EST. You must purchase your tickets prior to 8:46 PM EST to qualify for that day’s draw.
New Jersey Cash4Life Payout and Mechanics
New Jersey’s Cash4Life offers very easy mechanics. To play, just pick 5 main numbers between 1 to 60, and an additional Cash Ball number from a pool between 1 to 4. You may also opt for the Quick Pick option.
To win the jackpot, you have to match all five of your main numbers, as well as the Cash Ball. Meanwhile, to win the second prize, you must match five of your main numbers. There are nine prize tiers in total.
Each New Jersey Cash4Life play costs $2.
New Jersey’s Cash4Life has a Doubler option that doubles any non-“for life” prizes you might win. That means the top two prize tiers are unaffected by the Doubler.
To enable Doubler, pay an additional $1 when you purchase your ticket.
