What is Cash for Life?

Cash for Life is a lottery which takes place in New York every day, seven days a week, at 21:00 EST (03:00 CET / 02:00 GMT). Tickets for this lottery are offered in nine states in the United States, which means that it is a multi-state lottery. You can place your bets on Cash4Life even if you’re not a US resident, and you will still be in the chance of winning the same prizes.

When did Cash for Life start?
