With that in mind, he decided to purchase the ticket and try his luck. That spur of the moment decision proved to be luckier than he had ever hoped by making him the fifth Cash for Life jackpot winner. “I didn’t believe it at first. I never thought I’d win this much,” said the lucky player.
This player won on the $2 Cash for Life ticket which will net him $800 per week. Currently he has no special plans for the money.
The winning ticket was sold at Felpausch #1979 located at 1603 Capital Ave. NE in Battle Creek.
