Set for Life is the first new national draw lottery game in almost 20 years and offers a 1st Prize of $20,000 each and every month for 20 years.

Better still, every night of the week up to four winners can claim a life-enhancing 1st Prize, and each will be Set for Life with $20,000 deposited in their bank account every month like clockwork!

Tatts Lotteries spokesperson Elissa Lewis said winning 1st Prize in Set for Life will give winners 20 years of possibilities to get more out of life.

Set for Life is unlike any lottery game that has ever been offered in Australia’s lottery history. It’s different to the weekly lottery games as it offers a draw each night of the week, seven day entries which can be purchased on any day of the week, a unique game mechanic and a brand-new proposition in the way the 1st Prize is paid to winners,” Ms Lewis explained.

“Winning Set for Life offers players the chance to enhance their own life and their family’s lives by giving them the opportunity to enjoy experiences that could otherwise have remained merely dreams.

“Imagine the things you’d do, the places you’d go, and what you would be if you were Set for Life.”

The Set for Life 1st Prize will be paid to winners in monthly instalments of $20,000 for 20 years.

A Set for Life draw is conducted every night of the week, 365 days each year, and players can start their seven-day Set for Life entry on any day of the week.

Each entry is a minimum of two games (SETS) each day over seven draws at a cost of $8.40 ($8.25 in South Australia).

As with all lottery games, players can choose their favourite numbers for each SET on a game coupon or have the lottery terminal randomly generate a SET of numbers for them, called a QuickSET. Players can choose QuickSETS of between 2 and 50 SETS to increase their chances of winning across seven days.

To win the 1st Prize in Set for Life, players must correctly choose the 8 winning numbers drawn from 37. Additional smaller divisional prizes can be won from 2nd Prize to 8th Prize by selecting a combination of the 8 winning numbers and 2 bonus numbers drawn. The chance of winning Set for Life 1st Prize based on playing the minimum 2 SETS in each draw is 1:19,304,010 remembering that each entry is played for seven consecutive draws.

Tickets for Set for Life are now on sale in lottery outlets around the country and online at Tatts.com with draws occurring every night of the week.
