How does betting on Cash4Life work?

Cash4Life is based on the Cash4Life lottery from New York. Instead of entering the official Cash4Life New York Lottery draw, you place a bet on the outcome of it. You pick the numbers you think will be drawn in the same way as if you had entered the official lottery draw. The amount of money that you win is determined by the amount of numbers that you correctly guess.

How do I choose a line and place a bet?

Choose 5 numbers from a main pool of 1–60 and a further Cash Ball number from a pool of 1–4. You can also select the QuickPick option (Quick+1) and this will choose your numbers for you randomly. Once you have chosen your numbers, select which draw you want to bet on, either Tuesday or Friday. Press Submit and this will take you to the cart – at this stage just click Confirm and proceed to place your bet.

How do I win the Jackpot?
