The Cash4Life officials are back with an exciting announcement of one of their winners from back in 2021. The officials are glad that finally, the player showed up to claim the prize money that he had won back in 2021.
The officials have revealed that the particular player participated in the October 6, 2021 draw for the Cash4Life game. They had lost all hope that the player will show up to claim his prize money.
If the player hadn’t shown up and the prize money would have expired, the money from the prize would have been sent over to charitable causes.
However, as the player has shown up to claim his prize money, the officials have decided to honor him and mention his winning details.
Harry Rye from Queens
The officials have revealed that the name of the winner is Harry Rye who is a resident of Forest Hills, Queens. Harry had participated in the October 6, 2021 draw for the Cash4Life game.
The numbers the players needed to match to win the top prize money for the Cash4Life game were 31-28-14-10-02. On top of the primary numbers, the Cash Ball the officials drew was 03 for the respective draw.
Harry ended up matching the primary numbers from the October 6, 2021 draw but he wasn’t able to match the Cash Ball. Therefore, he won the tier 2 prize money which was $1,000 a Week for Life.
If Harry had matched all the numbers, he would have won the tier 1 prize money of $1,000 a Day for Life. If it was the tier 1 prize money, Harry could have either gone for the $1,000 a day for life or the one-time lump sum of around $7,000,000.
Where did Harry buy his Ticket from?
Harry purchased his tier 2 prize-winning ticket from Craft Beer & Smoke. The particular store is located at 110-84A Queens Boulevard.
Harry had the option of going for the $1,000 a week for a minimum of 20 years. Otherwise, Harry could decide to leave with the one-time lump sum prize money of $612,240. The player decided to go with the latter option and he is over $600k richer.
