The Massachusetts State Lottery now offers a chance for a lifetime of winning every day when the multi-state Lucky for Life draw game expanded from two drawings per week to seven drawings per week on Monday, July 19, giving players a daily shot at winning $1,000 a day for the rest of their lives.
Drawings are conducted nightly at 10:38 p.m. ET. The cost per play, how the game is played and the prize structure remains the same.
“Offering increased opportunities to win $365,000 a year for the rest of your life is very exciting for our lottery customers and retail partners alike, who offer our products,” said State Treasurer Deborah B. Goldberg, Chair of the Massachusetts State Lottery Commission. “This expansion should generate a lot of interest resulting in long term benefits for our local communities.”
“As an original member of this multi-state game that began in New England and has since grown to include half of the nation’s lotteries, we look forward to being a part of Lucky for Life’s continued success,” said Michael Sweeney, Executive Director of the Massachusetts Lottery.
Since the game’s introduction to Massachusetts in 2012, there have been four $1,000 a day for life prizes and 65 $25,000 a year for life prizes won on tickets sold in-state.
Lucky for Life used to be drawn on Mondays and Thursdays. Tickets remain $2 per play. Winning tickets must be redeemed in the state in which they were purchased.
