Cathy Hit $201,272 with Jersey Cash 5 on Jackpocket

Cathy Predicted Her $201,272 Jersey Cash 5 Win on Jackpocket

She’s the 12th Jackpocket user to take home the top Jersey Cash 5 prize!

One evening in January, Cathy was sitting at the dinner table with her family when she made a bold prediction.

"I said, 'I just want you all to know I'll be winning the Jersey Cash 5, so be prepared.' And they're like, 'Yeah, okay mom.'"

A couple days later, Cathy announced to her family that her prediction came true. She had just scored a whopping $201,272 on Jersey Cash 5 using the Jackpocket lottery app. She plans to send her daughters to college, take care of her father and, of course, treat herself—as a Jersey Cash 5 Queen should!

A Normal Day

Before starting on Jackpocket about a year ago, Cathy wasn’t a very big lotto player…

“I’d play just once in a while when there was a big jackpot, I'd buy a ticket or two. But it was so easy to use Jackpocket. I became a lottery player.”

Her lucky day started off just like any other day, by checking the results of her favorite game.

“I always check the numbers while my coffee's brewing. So I go on to look and I say, ‘Oh, somebody won the Jersey Cash 5.'

It took a few minutes for Cathy to register that not only was there a top prize winner – but that winner was her!

And then when I scrolled over to reorder my numbers, I saw it said, ‘BIG WINNER’. And I was like, ‘What?

So I clicked on it and I was like, ‘No, this can't be right!’ I was really shocked—didn't believe it for probably about a good 20 minutes.”

When the reality that she won over $200K finally set in, Cathy ran to tell her husband (who was still in bed). His initial reaction was that his wife must be pranking him.

“I went up and I was like, ‘Are you awake?’ And he was like, ‘Yeah, what's the matter?’ I said, ‘I just won the Jersey Cash 5!’ He was like, ‘You're joking.’

So I showed him and he's like, ‘You made that up on the computer.’ He didn't believe me! And I was like, ‘No, I swear to God, look.’

And I went through Jackpocket to show him how it works and he was like, ‘Oh. My. God.’”

Cathy’s youngest daughter was also still in bed, but the six-figure news couldn't wait.

“She was like, ‘Oh, I thought you were going to tell me school was canceled.’ I'm like, ‘Lottery or school being canceled? I don't know—I prefer mine!’”

Plans for the Future

With two college-bound daughters, Cathy told us the timing of this win couldn’t have been better.

“Needless to say, that money is going to their schooling. It definitely is a weight off my shoulders. It came at a really good time.”

But she won’t forget to enjoy some of her winnings herself. 

“I think mom might have to take a little bit out! I haven't decided what I'll spend it on yet, but I would like to take a little out for myself, yeah.”

Congratulations to this well-deserving New Jersey winner!
