Check your Set for Life tickets – First prize won in Stepney!
What would you do if you won $20,000 a month for the next 20 years?
That’s a question Set for Life officials are keen to ask the newest Set for Life First Prize winner who won in last night’s draw with an unregistered entry purchased in the in the Adelaide suburb of Stepney.
Instead of making someone’s week with a Monday morning dream come true phone call, SA Lotteries officials will have to wait to break the life-enhancing news as the winning entry is unregistered, which means they have no way of contacting the winner.
Set for Life spokesperson Elissa Lewis said she was eager to hear from last night’s Set for Life First Prize winner and urged all players who purchased an unregistered entry in Stepney to check their tickets as soon as possible.
“Just imagine starting your working week with the news that your bank account will receive $20,000 each and every month for the next 20 years,” Ms Lewis said.
“The possibilities of what you could do each month for the next 20 years are endless! Imagine the things you could do and the places you could go if you had the opportunity to plot out on your calendar what you planned to do with your $20,000 windfall each month!
“We’re urging any Set for Life players who purchased an unregistered entry in the Adelaide suburb of Stepney to check their entry as soon as possible because they could be the First Prize winner we’re waiting to hear from!
“We recommend that anyone who believes they are holding the winning ticket to keep it in a safe place and contact SA Lotteries on 131 868 immediately to start the prize claim process.”

“We’ve been busy this morning checking tickets in the hope we find our winning customer!”
