More Reasons to Get “Lucky for Life®” with New Second “Lifetime” Prize
September 06, 2013 -- Anne M. Noble, President and CEO of the CT Lottery, announced today that Lucky for Life, the multi-state lottery draw game with a top prize worth up to $1,000 a day, every day for life, will soon give players even more reasons to get Lucky!
On September 17, 2013, Lucky for Life’s second prize will now be worth up to $25,000 a year, every year for life, replacing the game’s current $25,000 lump sum second prize. This change makes Lucky for Life the only lottery draw game to offer two “For Life” prize levels.
“We’ve spoken extensively to Lucky for Life players across New England and it comes as no surprise…they want more ways to win lifetime prizes,” said Noble. “This change will provide players with exactly what they’ve been asking for—a new second prize worth up to $25,000 a year for life, and the choice of a new payment option for both ‘lifetime’ prizes.”
