A Brief History of the Set for Life Lottery

The Set for Life lottery is a relatively new addition to the UK’s National Lottery lineup, having only been launched in March 2019. However, in just a short time, it has already made a significant impact on the lottery scene in the UK. Here is a brief history of the Set for Life lottery and some of its key milestones.

.

March 2019

The Set for Life lottery is launched as a new addition to the National Lottery lineup. Players can purchase tickets for £1.50 each and choose five main numbers from 1-47, as well as one “”Life Ball”” number from 1-10. The game is drawn every Monday and Thursday.

August 2019

The first ever Set for Life top prize winner is announced. The winner, a single mother from the West Midlands, chooses to receive a guaranteed income of £10,000 per month for the next 30 years.

January 2020

The Set for Life top prize is increased from £10,000 per month for 30 years to £10,000 per month for 30 years, with an option to receive a lump sum of £3.6 million instead.

May 2020

The Set for Life lottery introduces a new feature called the “Must Be Won” draw, in which the top prize must be won in that particular draw, even if no one matches all the numbers. If no one wins the top prize, the money is distributed to the next winning prize tier.

June 2020

The Set for Life lottery introduces a new feature called the “”Set for Life Bonus””, in which players can win an additional £1,000 per month for one year if they match the bonus ball number in addition to their five main numbers.
