Can you take the C4L jackpot as a lump sum of 7 million?

Interesting option!  I always feel I can do better with the money than the state can do with as far as a return on the money.  So if that is an option that is the one I would take.

    That jackpot winner was from a store about a 10 minute walk from me. Earlier this year a worker at The Pathmark I go to every Sunday won the $10,000 a week for life and about a year and a half earlier a lady own Win for Life Spectacular at a store I passed by every weekend one my way to buy produce. I never brought lotto scratch offs or tickets from any of these three places. Makes me think that if I continue to play NY Lottery games I shouldn't stick with one location...

    It does not matter where you play. You will win, if it is meant to be.

        I already bought some Cash4Life for tomorrow drawing. I am aiming for the small prizes though.

          yea but you will still see patterns and there will be one or two numbers that take a LONG time to hit. While a couple other numbers will hit a TON.

          Since I hit yesterday on numbers I get to play C4L on Monday.... Thumbs Up

          Play some of those numbers with a quick pick. You might hit a second prize or the jackpot. The girl in the cash4life winners story hit a second prize with a self pick, although she bought a $10 partial quick pick ticket.

              There is a new promotion buy 2 get 1 free. Starts today, before I read about it I decided to play $4 because I had 4 singles that I didn't want to use on junk food and got no free qp. Either that retailer is shady or there is something wrong with the promo.

                That's funny as I also played $4 on one card and got a FP with it! I didn't know about the promo until I got the FP.  So I played 2 more lines and got another FP.

                      Okay I guess I went to a shady retailer. I know he wasn't using the coupons from the previous promotion and probably saving them for family. I'm going to question him today about it, then report him if I don't like the answer.

                        The ticket should SAY on the bottom 'This ticket has qualified for a FREE PLAY' or something like that.

                          Yup that a what the ticket from yesterday said. Here's the update: I went to the same store and today decided to play $4 of my own numbers just in case there was an issue with getting a free game with the quick picks. I got my $4 play and no free qp. I asked the clerk what happened to the free qp, he said "it only comes out with qp numbers". I pointed to the bottom of the ticket and told him that's not what it says and yesterday I played qps and got no free ticket. As I started to leave he says "wait I have a ticket" then proceeded to hand me a coupon. Because of the good folks here I know that was for lasts months promo. I tell him to just use it now. He goes behind the machine then hands me a qp ticket.

                            I purchased two C4L lines tonight and did not receive an free ticket. I looked at the NYLottery website and it's a little ambiguous. Do you have to buy the tickets on Mondays and Thursdays to get the free play?

                              I **think** that's what the deal is.   I have a vague recollection of a Sweet Million promo where in order for you to get the FP, you had to buy the ticket on the day of the drawing.

                              I went into a store and bought some Sweet Milly tix and was expecting to get some FP's but I didn't get any. So I asked the clerk why I didn't receive one.  She very politely told me that the offer for FP's was only good on the day of the drawing.

                              Given that info, I went home and checked the NYS Lottery website and the wording there about the promo was vague at best.  The wording on their website did NOT make it clear that the promo was only available on Monday's and Thursday's.  So my guess is that's exactly what's going on here with the new C4L promo.

                              About playing the lottery --  You will lose more than you win. Until you hit a jackpot.  Then everything changes!
