If you bought a Cash4Life NJ Lotto ticket from the News Hut on Route 37 in Toms River, check your numbers!

A winning ticket was sold for the 2nd-place jackpot, which means someone is winning $1,000 a week for life!  The grand prize is $1,000 a day for life, but that second prize is nothing to shrug off.

The winning numbers were:  05, 21, 28, 56 and 58. The Cash Ball was: 03.

Honestly, I think this sort of jackpot is preferable to winning $100 million or whatever. When you win a massive jackpot like that, you get smashed with taxes,distant relatives come asking for money, you hear all the stories of people blowing their riches and going bankrupt in a few years.

BUT

If you can get the equivalent of a second job that makes you $52k a year without having to do any work, you stand a much better chance of maintaining your lifestyle, just with the comfort of not having to worry about unexpected expenses, or being able to travel more, or whatever.
