Which would you choose: a one-time million dollar payout or $1,000 a week for LIFE?
That's the decision a recent NJ Lottery Cash4Life winner gets to make!
The winner recalled that they ordered their winning Cash4Life ticket via the Jackpocket app during a commute home on New Jersey Transit.
The Jackpocket user was inspired to play for a little luck ahead of starting a new job the following week.
"This is pretty cool," the dazed winner said upon finding out they are now a millionaire.
Their lucky ticket won 2nd prize of $1,000 a week for life, or a cash value of $1,000,000, after matching the first 5 numbers drawn in the September 5, 2023 drawing. The player just missed matching the Cash Ball.
The numbers from the drawing were 7-19-43-54-56 and Cash Ball 1.
This is the 10th New Jersey lottery player to win a prize of $1 million or or more using Jackpocket. Other top winners include a New Jersey woman who won $9.4 million with a Pick-6 ticket ordered on the app.
Congrats to another Garden State winner!
