$7 Million
Brooklyn , Dec 20, 2018

Sixty-seven-year-old Selvyn Wheeler of Brooklyn is the most recent winner of the $7,000,000 CASH4LIFE jackpot prize.  Wheeler matched all six numbers drawn for the November 5 drawing.

“I play CASH4LIFE twice a week because I always win a little bit on the game,” explained Wheeler.  “I checked my ticket and didn’t understand what I won.  The clerk told me won a big prize and I needed to go to the Lottery offices.”

The winning CASH4LIFE numbers for the November 5 drawing were 19-39-40-47-60 Cash Ball 04.

Wheeler opted to receive his prize as a one-time lump sum payment and will receive a net check totaling $4,431,280 after required withholdings.

“I will use the money to retire a little earlier than planned and move to Florida,” he said.

The winning ticket was purchased at the Siddhi Vinayak Newsstand on 3rd Avenue in Manhattan.

Wheeler is the 121st New York Lottery player to claim a prize totaling $1,000,000 or more this year.

The New York Lottery contributed $1,337,283,719 in Lottery Aid to Education to school districts throughout the five boroughs of New York City during fiscal year 2017-2018.

About the New York Lottery

The New York Lottery continues to be North America’s largest and most profitable Lottery, contributing $3.37 billion in fiscal year 2017-2018 to help support education in New York State. The Lottery’s contribution represents approximately 13 percent of total state education aid to local school districts.

New York Lottery revenue is distributed to local school districts by the same statutory formula used to distribute other state aid to education. It takes into account both a school district’s size and its income level; larger, lower-income school districts receive proportionately larger shares of Lottery school funding.

New Yorkers struggling with a gambling addiction, or who know someone who is, can find help by calling the State's toll-free, confidential HOPEline at 1-877-8-HOPENY (1-877-846-7369) or by texting HOPENY (467369).
