BOISE – The Idaho Lottery is looking for someone who bought the winning ticket for last night’s draw of the Lucky for Life game. The winner will receive $25,000 a year for the rest of their life.
The winning ticket matched the first five numbers, but not the Lucky Ball itself. Thursday night’s winning numbers are 01, 04, 16, 28, 29, and the Lucky Ball was 10.
"We are encouraging everyone who played Lucky for Life for last night´s draw to check their tickets carefully for winners," said Jeff Anderson, Idaho Lottery Director. "This ticket has earned its owner the chance of a lifetime. They will receive $25,000 a year for as long as they live.”
The drawing for Lucky for Life is on Monday and Thursday nights. The top prize is $1,000 a day for life, no maximum payout. The second-tier prize, won in Idaho from last night’s draw, is $25,000 a year for life, with no maximum payout. Both “Life” prize payouts have a 20-year minimum cash option.
The game has been played in Idaho since January 2015. Anderson says this is the third winner of the $25,000 a year for life prize in Idaho since the game began.
The winner has 180 days to claim their prize from the Idaho Lottery.
