BOISE, Idaho ÔÇô Twenty-five thousand dollars a year for life! That's what one lucky player of the Idaho Lottery's game Lucky for Life has won from last night's draw. The Idaho Lottery has confirmed that one winning ticket was sold in Ada County and matched the first five numbers, but not the Lucky Ball itself, from the Lucky for Life draw on Thursday, September 15, 2016. Last 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."
Lucky for Life began in Idaho in January 2015 and is played in only twenty-one North American Lottery jurisdictions. The game is drawn on Monday and Thursday nights. The top prize in the game 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.
"This is the third winner of $25,000 a year for life from this game in Idaho in the first twenty months of the game," added Anderson. "Idaho is truly a lucky state!"
The winner from last night's draw has 180 days to claim their prize from the Idaho Lottery.
