Cash for Life FAQs

Take a look at some of the most common queries about Cash for Life to help you learn how the game works.

Does the jackpot roll over?

No- The jackpot stays fixed at ₹80,000 per day for life in every draw and does not change. The same goes for all the other prize tiers as they are fixed amounts for each draw.

What happens if there are multiple winners of the jackpot?

If there is more than one player who matches all the numbers, each winner still receives the full prize.

How does the Cash Ball work?

The Cash Ball is the sixth number selected in each draw. It is drawn from a separate ball set consisting just of the numbers 1 to 4. It is therefore possible for the same number to appear as a main ball and the Cash Ball in the same draw.

How much does it cost to bet on Cash for Life?

The cost of a single bet is ₹240, but the cost per bet is cheaper if you subscribe for either one month or three months.

How do you receive the prize money if you win?

Smaller prizes will be paid straight into your account. If you win a larger amount, such as the jackpot, verification checks may need to be carried out and you will be contacted by a customer support agent who can assist you with the claims process. Once the claims process is complete the money will be sent to your bank account directly.

Are the top two prizes paid ‘for life’ or are they paid out over a set number of years?

The top two prizes are paid out for the rest of the winner’s life, rather than over a fixed period.

What will happen to the payments if I change my bank account?

If you change your bank account at any time after winning, please contact us immediately so that payments can be switched over.

Has anyone won Cash for Life?

Cash for Life has been running since 2014 and the top prize of ₹80,000 per day for life has been won hundreds of times. The draw takes place daily in many states across the USA and online and has seen lots of winners take both the top prize and the second place prize of ₹80,000 per month for life.

Is matching the Cash Ball worth anything?

If you match the winning Cash Ball with the one on your entry then you still need to match at least one of the other main numbers to win a prize. Matching more than one of the other main numbers will increase the size of the prize you win.
