Just in time for his wife’s birthday, a Tennessee Lottery player won $1,000 a week … for life. Steve Stewart was still a bit shaky with disbelief when he claimed the unique Cash 4 Life prize Friday afternoon.
“It just doesn’t seem real,” he said. “My wife’s birthday is tomorrow and we’re taking a trip!”
Mr. Stewart won from the Cash 4 Life drawing held Thursday, after matching five of six numbers drawn. This is Tennessee’s second winner of this prize, paid in annual installments for the winner’s lifetime. First prize is $1,000 a day for life.
Mr. Stewart purchased the lucky ticket from East Food Market in Lyles.
Tennessee is one of nine states that offer Cash 4 Life.
