Ajit Rana, owner of Bayside Supply Inc. - Smoke Shop, won the top CASH4LIFE prize in the New York Lottery.

A Long Island City resident will receive $1,000 a day for the rest of his life after winning it big in the New York Lottery this year.

Ajit Rana, owner of Bayside Supply Inc. – Smoke Shop on Union Turnpike in the Oakland Gardens section of Bayside, is a dedicated lottery player and plays all of the weekly draw games. While he was at work on Friday, Nov. 11, Rana decided to buy his CASH4LIFE ticket for that night’s drawing.

The winning CASH4LIFE numbers that night were 8-11-37-41-54 Cash Ball 4. Rana’s ticket matched all six numbers, which earned him the top CASH4LIFE prize of $1,000 a day for the rest of your life. When Rana returned to work the next day, he heard people talking about how the winning ticket was sold in his store.

“I thought to myself, ‘I wonder if it’s me?’” Rana said. “I checked my tickets and couldn’t believe what I was seeing. I was just in shock.”

After learning about his win, Rana immediately called his wife, who found the situation completely unbelievable.

“She thought I was joking,” Rana said. “So I went home and showed her the ticket. We just kept checking the numbers over and over again. We were both just totally surprised!”

Rana will receive $1,000 a day in a net check totaling $227,410 every year for the rest of his life. Rana said he will take his time deciding to how to spend his fortune, but does know that he wants to buy a house.
