Important Things to Know About Lucky for Life

  • The old matrix of 5/43 + 1/43 never resulted in a top prize-winner.  
  • 2015 had the first winner to prefer the lump-sum cash option over the annuity payment.
  • The odds of receiving $25 in Lucky for Life are almost 2x better when compared with the Cash4Life lottery.
  • Opting for the cash option usually results in a much smaller prize due to taxes.
  • Players can play Lucky for Life above the age of 21 in Iowa, 19 in Nebraska, and 18 elsewhere.
  • The total prize is always divided. If there are more than 15 top prize-winners, there is no annuitized cash option, only $7,125,000.00 to be divided. 
  • The second prize is divided if there are 21 or more winners. In that case, there is no annuity payment, and the total of $9,400,000.00 is divided.

The Top 5 Biggest and Latest Lucky for Life Winners

  1.

It occurred in February 2021 and was the first time the jackpot prize comes out in Michigan.
  2. Damian Zepponi, North Carolina – Zepponi purchased a total of $6 in Quick Pick Lucky for Life tickets on the drawing day in January 2020. The second ticket matched all five numbers and the Lucky Ball. She opted for the cash option and received a total of $4,068,127 after tax withholdings. She plans to invest the money and start a ministry to help others.
  3. Anonymous Couple, Kansas – The date of June 25th, 2018, will be marked in the memory of a couple of Kansas who had been playing for a decade without seeing their numbers matched in the Lucky for Life results. They also opted for the cash option and decided to retire earlier than planned.
  4. David Jordan, Kentucky – Jordan always played Lucky for Life, but it was a penny found by chance that changed his life. He took it on his way into a store as a lucky charm on August 18, 2017, and it seems it worked since he bought the winning ticket. David also took the cash option and decided to buy his daughter a house, and also one for himself.
