Lucky Ticket Holder from West Australia Wins AU$20,000 a Month for 20 Years

- May 18, 2016

One very lucky lotto player from West Australia has beaten the Set for Life odds and is now AU$4.8 million richer – the only catch is that the winner has to wait 20 years to receive all of the winnings. The WA ticket is the only winner of Draw #283 of Set for Life, wherein the first prize winner is rewarded a whopping AU$20,000 for 12 months, spread over 20 long years.

Set for Life Draw #283 Results

Draw #283 was conducted last Sunday night, and the Set for Life lotto results have been published in newspapers and in online sites. The winning numbers were 1, 19, 8, 36, 22, 14, 20 and 25, with bonus numbers 37 and 34. The lucky winner correctly guessed all eight of the winning numbers. The first prize of Set for Life is a maximum of AU$20,000 a month for 20 years guaranteed for up to four winners every draw. If there are more than four winners, the total maximum prize pool of AU$19,200,000 will be evenly shared through monthly installments over two whole decades.

But for this draw there is only one first prize winner. The single winning ticket is reported to have been bought from The Lucky Charm Midland outlet. The winner has yet to get in touch with Lotterywest to verify the ticket.

It is the second time that a ticket holder from West Australia has won the first prize of Set for Life. The ticket holder is also the 10th first prize winner nationally, since Set for Life was launched last year. Around 1.4 million WA players have won rewards in other levels of the game. These WA winners have shared more than AU$25 million collectively.

Cheryl Wild from The Lucky Charm Midland store was delighted about the news. She said, “It’s been a while since we’ve had a big winner, about eight or nine years, so this is excellent.”

She added, “I’d love the winner to be one of our regular customers because they’re all so lovely.”
