Drawings

The New Jersey Network (NJN) aired live televised drawings twice a day, seven days a week; midday at 12:57 p.m. ET, and nightly at 7:56 p.m. ET. Also, NJN aired the twice-weekly Mega Millions drawings at 10:59 p.m. every Tuesday and Friday night, as well as the Wednesday and Saturday Powerball drawings at the equivalent time. On July 1, 2011, the New Jersey Lottery became the first lottery in the nation to stream their drawings, live, from the New Jersey Lottery’s headquarters on either the New Jersey Lottery’s website or the New Jersey Lottery’s Ustream channel. On September 6, 2011, drawings returned to broadcast on television on NJTV on a one-hour tape delay; the live drawings continue to be held at the Lottery’s headquarters and broadcast online. On June 4, 2012, the live drawings from the New Jersey Lottery’s Ustream channel moved to Livestream.

On January 1, 2013; the New Jersey Lottery drawings returned to broadcast television. The drawings were aired on WLNY (channel 10/55) in northern New Jersey, and WPSG-TV (channel 57), in southern New Jersey, both of which are owned by CBS. These are the first New Jersey Lottery drawings to be aired on commercial television. On July 1, 2014, the New Jersey Lottery live drawings moved to WPIX/channel 11 (New York City) and WPHL/channel 17 (Philadelphia), both of which are formerly owned by Tribune Broadcasting. On the same day, Erica Young (daughter of the late New Jersey Lottery draw host Hela Young) was introduced as the lottery’s new draw host. On May 11, 2018, Erica Young hosted her final New Jersey Lottery drawing, taking on a new position with the Lottery. On the same day, the lottery aired its final televised midday drawings on broadcast television. On May 14, 2018, Lauren Berman was introduced as New Jersey Lottery’s new draw host. On June 29, 2020, NJ Lottery discontinued to broadcast the evening drawings on WPIX & WPHL. The live drawings now stream exclusively on NJ Lottery’s web site, Facebook page, and Livestream. In addition, the evening drawings moved from 7:57pm to 10:57pm. The Mega Millions and Powerball drawings continue to broadcast on WABC-TV in New York and WTXF-TV in Philadelphia.

Rules

Each game costs $2 per drawing. Players pick five white ball numbers from 1 through 60 in the main field, plus one number from 1 through 4 from the second field, the green “Cash Ball”. Players also have the option to have the terminal randomly select the numbers in both fields. Matching all five numbers in the main field plus the Cash Ball wins, or shares («split-prize liability»), the equivalent of $1,000-per-day-for-life, or $7,000,000 cash, at the winner’s option. Second prize, however, can have multiple winners of $1,000-per-week-for-life and/or $1,000,000 cash. New Jersey Lottery regulations require that players choose either the annuity or cash option when playing. First- and second-prize winners who chose the «annuity» option can change to the cash option after winning; however, the «cash» option is binding and cannot be changed.

New Jersey’s Doubler NJ option

On May 15, 2017, New Jersey added an option, called Doubler NJ; it can be added to a Cash4Life ticket for an additional $1 per play. Any non-«for Life» prize is doubled. New Jersey remains the only Cash4Life state with such an option.

The overall odds of winning are approximately 1:7.76. The prize pool is 55 percent of sales.

† The top two annuitized prizes, third prize, and the $1,000 Doubler NJ prize each have a liability limit. If there are an excessive number of winners of a «lifetime» prize tier, such prizes will automatically be paid in cash to each winner. Cash option values (which can change periodically) are $7,000,000 for the top prize, and $1,000,000 for second prize.

‡ The top prize is «split-prize liability»; in essence, a non-progressive jackpot.

Winners of either «lifetime» prize tier can receive cash in lieu of the lifetime annuity. Rules also vary by Cash4Life member: a ticket bought in Florida whose winner prefers the cash option must claim within 60 days of the drawing. New Jersey requires the cash/annuity choice be made when purchasing a ticket; a «cash option» choice is legally binding, but an «annuity option» ticket can be changed to the «cash option» when claiming.

Drawings

The nightly Cash4Life drawings are held live from Studio B (a.k.a. the Cash4Life Studio) at New Jersey Lottery Headquarters at Lawrence Park Complex in Trenton, New Jersey at 9:00 p.m. ET on Livestream. Each drawing is supervised by an auditor from Hamilton, New Jersey-based Mercadien P.C., a CPA and Asset Management firm. The drawings were originally hosted by Erica Young until May 10, 2018. The current hostesses are Lauren Berman and Jacqueline Knox. If either of them are unavailable, off camera announcers are used. The practice of using off camera announcers have been used particularly during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Two drawing machines are used during each Cash4Life drawing. The larger machine (Magnum II) is used for randomly mixing the 60 white balls by using counter-rotating arms. The smaller machine (Messenger Single Digit) mixes the four green Cash Balls by using a clockwise rotating arm. Individually, the five white balls (several seconds apart) followed by the green Cash Ball are drawn; each ball drops through a hole at the bottom of the appropriate mixing drum. The drawing machines are manufactured by Smartplay International of Edgewater Park, New Jersey.

As of July 1, 2019, Cash4Life is drawn nightly. Previously, Cash4Life was drawn on Mondays and Thursday evenings.
