Ring, ring, ring... Set for Life ready to crown next 1st Prize winner in NSW!

Friday 15 April 2016 - There was one 1st Prize winning entry in last night’s Set for Life draw purchased in New South Wales with the ticket holder now set to receive $20,000 each and every month for 20 years!

This is the third Set for Life 1st Prize win in New South Wales, and nationally the winner will join seven other Australians who are already enjoying their monthly instalments of the twenty year Set for Life windfall.

Set for Life officials know the identity of the eighth winner as the ticket was registered to a players card, and have been attempting to call them this morning to break the news that they are now Set for Life, but unfortunately the phone is ringing out!

Set for Life spokesperson Belinda McDougall said she was eager to speak with the winner and break the big news to them so they can start planning out a calendar of exciting activities every month for the next 20 years.

“I can’t wait to deliver the news to New South Wales’ newest Set for Life winner, if only they’d answer my phone calls!” Ms McDougall exclaimed.

“This isn’t the sort of phone call that people are used to receiving – it’s life-changing! It’s 20 years of brand new possibilities for someone; to pursue their hobbies, travel the world, and have more freedom!

“We’re urging any Set for Life players in New South Wales to check their entries today, as you could be our winner! If you’ve got a few missed calls on your phone, it could be a clue!”

The third 1st Prize win in New South Wales follows a Wollongong father in his 40s who made Australian lottery history by becoming the first winner in Set for Life, and a second winning entry which was purchased in Earlwood.

Since Set for Life launched in August 2015, there have been eight 1st Prize winners– three each in New South Wales and Victoria, and one each in South Australia and Western Australia.

Across the country, it was the only entry that won 1st Prize in last night’s Set for Life draw 252, 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 252 on Thursday 14 April 2016 were 36, 24, 22, 2, 31, 11, 16 and 17, with the bonus numbers 20 and 32.

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.
