"Lucky for life" is a US $2 game. The slogan of the game is "The Game of a Lifetime". The minimum age to play "Lucky for life" is 18 years. When the state of Iowa joins, the minimum age to play will be 21 years, according to state's Lottery regulations.
"Lucky for life" drawings are held in Connecticut, on Thursdays at 10:38 pm Eastern Time. The game uses two drawing machines and numbered balls.
The game was named "Lucky for life" three years later after it became a regional game. On September 17, 2013, a modified version of the game became available. The new version added a second, "lifetime" prize.
To win the Grand prize, players need to match five numbers drawn from 48 numbers in the game’s first machine and match one number in the "Lucky Ball" machine, drawn from 18 numbers. The game works on a principle where numbers are drawn from two different machines.
The Grand prize can be cashed or annuitized (paid in yearly amounts), depending on the winner's choice. If a winner chooses an annuitized payment, they receive or share a payment equivalent of "$1,000 a-day-for-life", with a 20-year guarantee.
Second prize winners can also choose a cash option. Second prize is worth $25,000/year for life. In the Connecticut version of the game, the amount is $10000 cash. In the original version of the regional game, second prize is $25,000 cash.
"Lucky for Life" has a minimum 20-year payment for the first and second prizes, if the winner passes away. Those continued payments would go to a winner’s estate.
The previous version of Lucky for Life used 5/40 + 1/21 balls, but now Lucky for Life uses 5/48 white balls and 1/18 green balls, so called "Lucky Balls". Modification of the game in 2013 had 43 balls in each of the two drums, while the previous version was 5/40 + 1/21. The game that was drawn only in Connecticut, drew four white balls and one green ball, the "Lucky Ball". The name "Lucky4Life" symbolizes drawing of four white balls and a "Lucky Ball".
A top prize-winning ticket was never drawn in the 5/43 + 1/43 version. Since January 29, 2015, all winners of the "Lucky for life" Top-prize, "$1,000-per-day", are receiving their winnings in accordance to the pre-cash option rules.
Lucky for Life now has 16 members: Arkansas, Connecticut, Delaware, District of Columbia, Idaho, Iowa, Kentucky, Maine, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Montana, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Texas, and Vermont.
The latest top prize winning ticket was sold for the August 12, 2013 drawing, in New Hampshire.
