New Jersey CASH4LIFE Player’s FREE Ticket Wins $1,000 a Week for Life
TRENTON (June 25, 2018) – Carole Halleran of Wayne loves to use coupons; so, when she saw the CASH4LIFE “Buy One Get One Free” coupon in her local newspaper, she had to seize the opportunity. Carole stopped in her local Shoprite to look for coffee for her husband and, while there, she remembered the CASH4LIFE coupon in her pocket. She decided to buy a $2 Quick Pick ticket, redeeming the free ticket coupon along with it.
The day after the Thursday, April 19 drawing, Carole received a phone call from her daughter who had seen the news that a CASH4LIFE $1,000 a Week for Life second-tier jackpot ticket was sold at the Shoprite in Wayne. They both wondered if it might be possible that Carole had that lucky ticket.
Carole looked up the results on NJLottery.com to check the numbers on her tickets and, on her free ticket, saw the numbers matched, missing only the Cash Ball. Carole couldn't believe her eyes and had to double-check the ticket - her previous highest prize was just $11.
It was really possible: she had won the second-tier CASH4LIFE prize of $1,000 a Week for Life. Carole and her husband talked to a financial adviser and elected to take the cash option of $1,000,000. They’ll put this money toward savings and investments to see returns for their family's future. Her lucky ticket was purchased at Shoprite of Wayne #221, 625 Hamburg Turnpike, Wayne in Passaic County.
