The winning numbers for July 4 were 2-9-18-25-51. The Cash Ball was number 3. The odds of winning the jackpot is 1 in 21,846,048. At the time of publishing, a winner hadn't been announced for the Thursday draw. If you need to check your ticket, you can do so on the VA Lottery website.

Playing Cash4Life is similar to playing Mega Millions and Powerball. Players buy a ticket for $2 and pick five numbers from one through to 60. They then select one Cash Ball number from one through to four. As with other lotteries, players can select their own numbers or they can let the computer fill them in randomly.

To win the Cash4Life jackpot, players need to match five numbers plus the Cash Ball drawn, winning them $1,000 a day for life. Match only five numbers and the winnings drop down to $1,000 a week for life. Like Powerball, there are nine ways to win a prize.

If you think you have a winning ticket, the VA Lottery website advises players to sign the back of it, as it is a bearer instrument and by signing it the player protects themselves. Never hand an unsigned ticket to another person, unless you are okay with that person claiming a possible prize. If you won a prize in Mega Millions, Powerball or Cash4Life with an online subscription, here's how to claim your prize.

If your prize is more than $600, and with Cash4Life the jackpot would be, players can take the ticket to a Virginia Lottery customer service center or one of the prize zones. Take a valid government-issued photo ID and your social security card or other proof of your social security number.

Tickets expire 180 days after the drawing so don't wait too long to claim.

According to its website, since July 2, Cash4Life has moved to daily drawings rather than twice weekly. Check the website or with your local retailer to see how this will affect you.

Since its inception, the Virginia Lottery has given back to public schools in the state. According to its website, it has donated over $9 billion since 1999.

The next draw is on Friday, July 5, 2019.
