Set For Life is an annuity game in the UK National Lottery. The top prize awards the winner £10,000 a month for 30 years.
Set For Life Prizes Breakdown
Set For Life is the first lottery of its kind, launched in 2019. Two draws occur every week: one on Monday and one on Thursday. There have been over 50 winners of the top prize of £10,000 every month for 30 years.
There are 8 Set For Life prize tiers, each with a different prize. They are:
- Matching 5 main numbers and the Life Ball awards £10,000 every month for 30 years.
- Matching 5 main numbers awards £10,000 every month for 1 year.
- Matching 4 main numbers and the Life Ball awards £250.
- Matching 4 main numbers awards £50.
- Matching 3 main numbers and the Life Ball awards £30.
- Matching 3 main numbers awards £20.
- Matching 2 main numbers and the Life Ball awards £10.
- Matching 2 main numbers awards £5.
Do You Get Anything For 2 Numbers?
Yes, if you match 2 main numbers, you win £5. However, if you match 1 main number and the Life Ball, this does not count as matching 2 numbers and, therefore, does not award a payout.
Can You Win Set For Life Twice?
Although the chances of winning the lottery are low, it is possible to win the Set For Life prize twice. There is no rule preventing a previous winner from playing or from receiving the top prize if they win it again.
The odds of winning the top Set For Life prize once are nearly 1 in 15.3 million, so the chances of winning twice are very slim.
If You Win Set For Life Can You Take a Lump Sum?
One of the best things about the National Lottery games is that the T&Cs are always well-stated. One example is the rule on whether you can take a Set For Life lump sum.
However, the rules in this annuity lottery dictate that prizes are paid in instalments unless prize capping is in place or the winner dies before the annuity payments are completed.
