June 13 will be a special day for those New York residents who frequently purchase lottery tickets, because a new game will be introduced. The New York Gaming Commission has finally announced its intention of rolling out a brand-new game that goes by the name of Cash 4 Life lottery. The name is supposed to shatter all doubts about what this lottery is all about, as the winner can expect to receive $1000 a day for the rest of his life.
When something sounds too good to be true it usually is, but on this particular occasion, the game is not only fair but also extremely reliable. Given the fact that the New York gaming commission endorses the lottery and the prizes are guaranteed by the local authorities, prospective players have no reason to doubt the fairness of this lottery.
The new game was introduced as a result of a vote taking place with commission members agreeing to allow players from New Jersey to participate as well. Ohio and Virginia residents are also expected to tag along once Cash 4 Life kicks in, sometime in mid-June, so the success of the new game is virtually assured. While this is an entirely new game, it replaces Sweet Million, one that the gaming commissions thinks that failed to meet the high expectations.
The price for the new games starts at two dollars and the drawings will be scheduled on Monday and Thursday. The rules are straightforward, with players being instructed to select five numbers ranging from 1 to 60 and a special one that goes by the name of cash ball. This special pool of numbers has just four balls and the one who matches all six numbers will win $1000 per day for the rest of his life.
Making players rich is one of the intended results of Cash 4 Life, but the state of New York will also be the top beneficiary. A significant amount is expected to go to state coffers, with the estimations revolving around the number of $25 million. This would represent an improvement of $9 million if compared to the previous lottery, so if these predictions prove to be correct, then you lottery will be here to stay.
