“Lucky for Life” offers the chance to win up to $1,000 a day, every day, for a lifetime; Ticket sales begin March 11 with first drawing on March 1
New England’s six lotteries are introducing a multi-state draw game that offers players the opportunity to win a prize of a lifetime – up to $1,000 a day, every day, for their entire life.
Lucky for Life will launch on Sunday, March 11 in Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island and Vermont. Ticket sales for the twice-weekly game will also begin on March 11 with the first drawing taking place on Thursday, March 15. Drawings will be held every Monday and Thursday at 10:38 p.m. in Connecticut and aired live on FOX CT in Channel 61 in Hartford. Game results will be announced to New Hampshire Lottery players on www.nhlottery.com.
Lucky for Life is the first multi-state lottery offering to be played in all six New England states. The directors of each lottery are looking forward to the new game’s launch and the excitement that it will not only create in their respective states, but throughout the region.
“We’re excited to be working with all the New England states to bring our players a game that’s unique to the region,” said Charlie McIntyre, Executive Director of the New Hampshire Lottery. “We can’t wait to hand over the ceremonial oversized check for $1,000 a day for life to our first Lucky for Life jackpot winner!”
There will be 10 total ways to win playing Lucky for Life. Players must select five numbers out a field of 40, and one Lucky Ball number out of a field of 21. Those matching all six numbers drawn will win the game’s $1,000 a day for life top prize which will be guaranteed for a minimum of 20 years, but will continued to be paid out for the duration of each winner’s lifetime!
In addition to its extraordinary top prize, Lucky for Life will also feature a $25,000 second prize and other exciting cash prizes ranging from $2,000 to $2. The overall odds of winning a prize in the game will be one in 6.6. While there will not be a cash option offered on the game’s top prize, all lower-tiered prizes will be paid out in one-time, lump sum payments.
Each Lucky for Life ticket will cost $2 and will be sold at all lottery retailers operating within the six New England states. All winning tickets will need to be redeemed in the same state in which they were purchased.
