BOISE, Idaho – Living a long, healthy life just got a $1,000 a day incentive from the Idaho Lottery. This morning, tickets went on sale for the Idaho Lottery’s newest $2 Draw Game, Lucky for Life. Jackpot prize winners on Lucky for Life receive $1,000 a day, every day, for the rest of their natural lives.
“It’s luck that lasts a lifetime!” said Jeff Anderson, Idaho Lottery Director. “The jackpot prize and the second prize on Lucky for Life are true “for life” winning opportunities for players. Both prizes are payable for the entire natural life of a winner.”
Lucky for Life is a $2 Draw Game where the players match five numbers from a pool of forty-eight numbers and then one Lucky Ball from a pool of eighteen numbers to win the game’s life time jackpot prize of $1,000 a day for the rest of their natural life. Players who only match the first five numbers win $25,000 a year for the remainder of their natural lives. Both prizes have minimum payouts of twenty years. There is no maximum payout for either prize.
In addition to the game’s jackpot and second prizes, there are eight other one-time cash prize amounts on the game from $3 to $5,000.
Lucky for Life is only played in fourteen states nationwide. Lucky for Life is a new permanent Draw Game in Idaho. This game is not a promotion and will continue to be on sale just like the other big national jackpot Draw Games – Powerball, Mega Millions, Hot Lotto Sizzler, and Wild Card.
Winning number draws on Lucky for Life occur on Monday and Thursday nights at 8:35 PM, Mountain Time. Players may purchase tickets for the draw until 7:30 PM, Mountain Time on the day of the draw.
