$1,000 A Day for Life prize won in Gaston County on Wednesday using Online Play

August 4, 2022 Posted by NC Lottery at 1:36 PM

Someone using Online Play bought a Lucky for Life ticket for Wednesday’s drawing and won a prize that will pay them $1,000 a day for the rest of their life.

The winner could take the prize as an annuity that pays $365,000 every year for the rest of the winner’s life. After 20 years, that would add up to $7.3 million, after 30 years $10.9 million, and so on for life. The winner could choose instead to take the prize as a lump-sum amount of $5.75 million.

The lucky winner purchased the ticket using Online Play in Gastonia in Gaston County. Lucky for Life is one of four games, including Powerball, Mega Millions and Cash 5, where players have the option to purchase their tickets online through the lottery’s website.

The odds of matching numbers on all five white balls and the Lucky Ball are 1 in 30.8 million. The winner has 180 days from the drawing to claim their prize.

Lucky for Life drawings occur daily. Players can buy Lucky for Life tickets at any lottery retail location, through Online Play or by using the NC Lottery Official Mobile App.

Hello, why is the daily Lucky for Life drawing videos posted on Youtube only an animation instead of the actual drawing?NC Lottery
Hey there, Brian! This is because Lucky For Life uses a secure, audited digital random number generator (RNG) instead of a traditional ball machine, so there are no physical balls or traditional drawings to be broadcast. Hope this helps!
