50 First Prize winners are Set for Life!
Set for Life has hit a major milestone, crowning its fiftieth First Prize winner!
Since the game first launched in August 2015, Set for Life has been giving Australians the chance to win $20,000 every month for 20 years. It’s the only game that allows you to play your numbers across 7 consecutive daily draws, every night of the week.
It was a Kellyville couple who tipped the winning tally to 50, when they held the only First Prize winning entry in Set for Life draw 1466, drawn Sunday 11 August 2019.
We broke the news to the thrilled New South Wales couple yesterday.
“Thank you so much,” the winning woman laughed.
“We’ve been out all day, so we had no idea. I saw your email but I just thought we won a few thousand dollars, I never in a million years thought we won First Prize.
“We are feeling very excited. It’s surreal!
“It’s a big shock! We are a bit overwhelmed. You never expect to be the person on the end of this call.
“You bet we will be celebrating all week! Tonight we will go out for a fancy dinner and break the news to the kids.”
When asked how they planned to enjoy their prize, the keen holidaymakers said it would completely change their life.
“It’s really come at the perfect time,” the woman said.
“It means we don’t need to worry about money and can just do all the things we have wanted to do.
“We’ll share it with our kids. We want to look after them first.
“There will be lots and lots of holidays. We love to travel! We will be traveling all the time and exploring new places.
“We want to go on a big trip to Europe next. We’d love to see France and Italy.
“This speeds up our retirement too! We want to retire now and just spend our days enjoying time with our family or travelling.”
The pair, who wish to remain anonymous, purchased their winning 2-SET entry at Kellyville Plaza Newsagency, Shop 21, 90 Wrights Road, Kellyville.
Kellyville Plaza Newsagency manager Vijay Sarma said he was thrilled to have sold the fiftieth Set for Life First Prize winning entry.
“We were excited to hear that one of our customers won First Prize in Set for Life,” he said.
“I think it is such a great prize because it’s paid on a monthly basis.
“Hopefully our lucky store brings more major prize wins to our customers. We have sold three major prizes in the last six years and we can’t wait to sell more!
“We would like to congratulate our winners and wish them good luck and happiness in their future.
