About Set For Life

Set for Life was the first lottery of its kind launched in the UK that offers a prize paid out monthly for 30 years, rather than a one-off lump sum payment of a jackpot. It follows the same template of a lotteries of the same kind and, in some cases, name that you find in the USA and Australia. The UK Set for Life offers a top prize of £10,000 per month for 30 years and a second prize of £10,000 per month for a year.

Draws take place every Monday and Thursday at 8pm, with the winning numbers announced immediately after and the prize information to follow roughly 45mins later.

Set for Life Overview

After launching in March 2019, Set for Life immediately had an avid following in the UK after there had been calls and rumours of an annuity type lottery across the country for years. There were already many lotteries of the same style in the USA and a Set for Life in Australia, so it was only natural for the National Lottery to follow suit and offer a very similar game. After launch it only took 12 weeks for the top prize to be won, with the first annuity winner coming on 6th June 2019.

Players need to choose five numbers from a pool of 1 – 47, known as the main numbers, and then one Life Ball from a separate set of balls labelled 1 – 10. As with all National Lottery games you can also get a Lucky Dip with a random selection of these numbers. Each ticket costs £1.50 to enter, making it cheaper to enter than the two flagship games of Lotto and EuroMillions.

The top prize will give the lucky winner £10,000 per month for 30 years, or £3.6 million in total, whilst you can also win an annuity style prize for the second level as £10,000 per month for a year, or £120,000. More information on the prizes and odds can be found in the relevant section below.

Set for Life draws also take place on Monday and Thursday- both of which were days where there were no lottery draws in the UK prior to 2019. The introduction of Set for Life now means that UK players can enter a National Lottery draw on every day of the week other than Sunday.
