Set for Life celebrates 1st birthday!

5 August 2016

With over $35 million in prizes given away in WA since launching last year, there are plenty of reasons to celebrate the first birthday of Australia’s newest Lotto game, Set for Life!

Sunday 7 August marks exactly one year since the first draw of Set for Life, the first new national lottery game launched in nearly 20 years.

“Since the game launched twelve months ago, more than 1.6 million Set for Life prizes worth over $35 million have been won by West Australians,” said Lotterywest spokesperson Paula Schibeci.  

“This includes three lucky local players who have won 1st Prize and are experiencing what it’s like to be literally Set for Life!”

“The WA winners are among 12 nationally who have picked up 1st Prize over the last year and are enjoying their monthly payment of $20,000 each and every month for the next 20 years.”

A family from Perth’s southern suburbs took out the title of first WA Set for Life winners after claiming 1st Prize in October last year. The ticket was purchased at Brentwood Village News.

Since then, two more West Australians have won 1st Prize, with both wins happening over three days in May. The tickets were purchased from The Lucky Charm in Baldivis and Midland.

Almost 10 months on, the first winners continue to enjoy their monthly $20,000 deposit which they describe as 'life changing' . It has allowed them to pay off debt on their family home and plan for holidays and the purchase of a new car.

Another one of WA’s Set for Life winners has bought himself a brand new car and is planning a trip to fulfil his dream of experiencing his first white Christmas.

Set for Life is drawn every night of the week. To win 1st Prize, players must correctly choose the 8 Winning Numbers drawn from 37 in a single SET for that draw. If won, there are up to four guaranteed 1st Prizes of $20,000 a month for 20 years and the entire prize is tax free. Players can also start their 7 day Set for Life entry on any day and tickets start from $8.40.

Local players can purchase their Set for Life tickets by 7pm every night of the week from Lotterywest retailers, through Play Online or by downloading the Lotterywest App.

Over the last year support from players purchasing Set for Life tickets has also helped Lotterywest raise over $20 million for the WA community.
