I live in the great state of Tennessee and we now have CASH 4 LIFE. The 2 top prizes are $1000.00 a day for life and $1000.00 a week for life. (I think they consider life as 20 years)

The tickets are $2.00 each per play. I like playing the game but I rarely see any top winners and no one from TN has won the 1st or 2nd top prizes yet. The most I have won was $10.00 I had 2 #'s plus the cash ball.

I know the odds have to be high considering you must have 5 white balls from 1-60 and 1 cash ball 1-4

Should I keep playing it or put the money towards Powerball or Mega Millions?

Do you play CASH 4 LIFE?

Have you won any prizes yet?

    I stopped being a regular player of powerball after the matrix change and now I buy two cash4life tickets instead. I regularly play Megamillions and seriously considered just buying more tickets for that game but I liked the idea of two more nights with drawings.

    With Cash4Life I would take the $7 million cash prize vs. the $1000 a day for life.  I have trust issues (as in I don't trust my state). 

    I have more success winning a little back with Cash4Life vs. MegaMillions. I buy 15 draws at a time so the total spent is $60. When I turn the ticket in at the end of the run I almost always get $20 back. With MegaMillions I think I get about $10 back.

    Buying Cash4Life is just another example of how my lottery play has changed over the years. When I was younger it was all about the really big bucks and I wouldn't have "wasted" my money on a measly $7 million cash prize. As I get older I now would be thrilled to get a " measly" $7 million. Smile

      It's the only game I play every draw. 

      JP is 1: 21,846,048

      2nd is 1: 7,282,016

      I haven't won much either but more then on the big odds games.

      Good luck !

          No one wins it and the payouts suck compared to the big games. Add in the fact that it costs $2 and I'll pass.

            Overall Odds: 1 in 8

            With the odds of winning first prize 21,846,048 to 1 is not bad when compared to the big odds of Mega & Powerball. That's not saying it's not hard to win, but you do have a better chance to win "C4L"

            $7 mil (less taxes) is better in the bank than nothing!
