TOP PRIZE: How Set For Life works
Monday 18 March 2019 saw the inaugural draw of Camelot’s newest National Lottery game.
The jackpot is an annuity-style prize — a guaranteed ‘fat salary’ of £10,000 every month for 30 years.
While the way the top prize is paid out is new to National Lottery players, the way to play Set For Life is straightforward.
You pick five main numbers from 1 to 47, and one ‘Life Ball’ from 1 to 10, for the chance to win fixed prizes – with everything from the top prize of £10,000 a month for 30 years*, to the 2nd prize of £10,000 a month for one year* if you get all the main numbers and not the ‘Life Ball’, to £5 for matching just two main numbers.
*Subject to prize capping – more information about prize capping will be available in the Set For Life Games Procedures.
Today, a £1m National Lottery prize went unclaimed as the owner failed to come forward.
The ticket was from the Euromillions draw on 29 January and was bought in the West Oxfordshire district.
Mr Carter said someone “has now sadly missed out on this substantial amount of money”.
“We tried very hard to find the ticket-holder and it’s a real shame that they have missed out, but there is still one winner – the nation,” he added.
It comes after a UK ticketholder successfully claimed a £123million EuroMillions jackpot – the third biggest win ever.
The new multi-millionaire chose to remain anonymous.
The owner of the winning ticket matched all five main numbers and two Lucky Stars – with the winning numbers 25, 27, 39, 42 and 46, with Lucky Stars 11 and 12.
Lotto organisers had put out a frantic appeal to the lucky punter to come forward amid fears they didn’t realise they had won.
The single UK ticket holder’s newly won fortune will catapult them into the Sunday Times Rich List of the 1,000 wealthiest people living in the UK or with British business links.
Other big winners who have gone public include Colin and Chris Weir, who won £161million on the EuroMillions in 2011.
