All of the prizes on the Set for Life lottery are fixed amounts. However, the value of the two annuity prizes may differ because they could be capped. A certain percentage of the earnings (estimated at 54%) from Set for Life ticket sales is used to fund the prizes to be paid. Although this value varies from time to time depending on the number of total winners.

Important Things to Know About Set for Life

  • You need to have a national lottery account before you can play the Set for Life lottery.
  • You win at the Set for Life when the numbers you select match the winning numbers drawn.
  • The prizes you stand to win start at £5 for matching at least two main numbers and increase depending on the number of matched numbers.
  • Except for the top two prizes, all other winnings are paid as a one-time sum. The annuity prizes are paid in the form of regular payments over a period of time.
  • Set for Life also offers a special promo called the Super Chance Draws- from time to time- that allows you to only match five special numbers to win the top prize (£10,000 every month for 30 years). This improves the chances of winning.  The date for the super chance draw is usually announced by the National lottery before they take place.
  •  In the super chance draw, your chance of winning the top prize increases from 1 in 15, 339, 390 to 1 in 1, 533,939.
  • The top prizes are subjected to prize capping. But it only happens when the total prize money required to pay the top winners in a single draw is more than £16 million. In this situation, the usual prize is reduced to accommodate all winners.
  • You have 180 days to claim your winning on the Set for Life lottery. If you fail to do this, your winning would be donated to the Good causes fund.
