Set for Life delivers second 1st Prize winner in first month!

Monday 17 August 2015 - A mother in her late 40’s from Doreen, Victoria received the exciting news today that she was the second ever 1st Prize winner in the new Australian lottery draw game, Set for Life!

The second 1st Prize win of $20,000 each and every month for the next 20 years comes only two weeks after the launch of the game, and follows a Wollongong father who won 1st Prize on Sunday 9 August.

The winner, who wishes to remain anonymous, had a hard time believing she had won 1st Prize and had 20 years of possibilities ahead of her.

“I just don’t believe it! I just can’t believe it!” the stunned woman exclaimed.

“You know, I’ve got $20 left in the family’s “fun fund” bank account. We get by, but you feel like you can never get on top of the bills to do anything fun with what’s left.

“Now I’ve got $20,000 every month to enjoy until I’m nearly 70 years old! That’s just freaky to think about.

“I can actually go to Hawaii to celebrate my birthday! I can really do it now, rather than just dream about it! We’ll also take the kids somewhere warm like Port Douglas for a family holiday.”

The winning 2-SET QuickSET entry was purchased at Laurimar News & Lotto, Shop 8, 95 Hazel Glen Drive in Doreen.

Karna Nagarsheth is the owner of Laurimar News & Lotto and said he was thrilled to have sold the first 1st Prize Set for Life ticket in Victoria.

“We’re so thrilled that Victoria has its first Set for Life winner and that the winning ticket was purchased at our store,” Mr Nagarsheth said.

“Our staff and customers have been spreading the great news! It must have been an amazing discovery for the winner to realise they had won and can keep on enjoying their windfall for the next 20 years!”

Throughout Australia, it was the only entry that won a 1st Prize in last night’s Set for Life draw 10, which offers a guaranteed 1st Prize of $20,000 a month for 20 year for up to four winners in each draw.

The winning numbers in Set for Life draw 10 on Sunday 16 August 2015 were 15, 26, 34, 8, 29, 19, 5 and 23, with the bonus numbers 36 and 21.

Set for Life is unlike any lottery game that has ever been offered in Australia’s lottery history. 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.

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.

Tickets for Set for Life are now on sale in lottery outlets around the country and online at Tatts.com with the next draw occurring tonight.
