How to Play
Players that are familiar with draw-type lottery games, such as Powerball and Mega Millions, will definitely fall in love with Lucky For Life. The opportunities are seemingly endless with whatever game you decide to play, but Lucky For Life has an appeal that is slightly different from other lottery games.
First, you would need to select five numbers in a range from one to 48. Next, select the lucky ball number that is in a range from one to 18. If you cannot decide, you can choose to have your numbers selected for you by the machine.
Once you have your numbers selected, whether in store or online, simply check out with your purchase and wait for the numbers to be drawn on the next draw time.
Odds, Price, and Prizes
The overall odds of winning a single prize in Lucky For Life are 1 in 8. To increase your chances of winning anything from this game, you could purchase another ticket.
By doing this, you are putting up another two dollars per purchase, and it could add up quickly with multiple purchases. You should always check your budget before increasing your ticket amount.
Below you will see the possible prizes you could win and the odds of winning them. If you win either of the jackpot prizes, which are matching five white balls and getting paid for the rest of your life, you do have the option of cashing out and receiving a lump sum.
