Everyone dreams about receiving a phone call from lottery officials to say ‘congratulations you’ve won’, yet one Set for Life player in New South Wales has missed it over and over and over again!

For seven days Set for Life officials have been attempting to contact the latest Set for Life First Prize winner and break the life-enhancing news that they’ve won $20,000 this month, next month and every month for the next 20 years!

Set for Life spokesperson Elissa Lewis said one week has now passed since the registered player scored First Prize in Set for Life draw 252 on Thursday 14 April with an entry they purchased in the New South Wales town of Gunnedah.

“The latest Set for Life First Prize winner did register their entry to a NSW Lotteries Players Club card so we know who they are, we just don’t know why they’re not answering our phone calls!” Ms Lewis exclaimed.

“They’ve already missed one weekend of celebrating becoming Set for Life, we’d love to break the news to them today so they don’t let another weekend pass without knowing!

“We’re not only keen to break the big news to them, but we’re also looking forward to hearing about the 20 years of possibilities ahead of them now that they’ll be receiving $20,000 each and every month!

“We’re urging any Set for Life players who purchased an entry in Gunnedah to check it today or at least answer their phone next time it rings!”

Since the Set for Life launched in August 2015, there have been eight First Prize winners – three each in New South Wales and Victoria, and one each in South Australia and Western Australia.

The First Prize winning Set for Life entry was purchased at Gunnedah Newsagency, 260 Conadilly Street in Gunnedah.

Across the country, it was the only entry that won First Prize in Set for Life draw 252 on Thursday 14 April, which offers a guaranteed First Prize of $20,000 a month for 20 year for up to four winners in each draw.

The winning numbers in Set for Life draw 252 on Thursday 14 April 2016 were 36, 24, 22, 2, 31, 11, 16 and 17, with the bonus numbers 20 and 32.

Set for Life is unlike any lottery game that has ever been offered in Australia’s lottery history.

The Set for Life First Prize will be paid to winners in monthly instalments of $20,000 for 20 years.

A Set for Life draw is conducted every night of the week, 365 days each year, and players can start their seven-day Set for Life entry on any day of the week.

To win the First Prize in Set for Life, players must correctly choose the 8 winning numbers drawn from 37. Additional smaller divisional prizes can be won from Second Prize to Eighth Prize by selecting a combination of the 8 winning numbers and 2 bonus numbers drawn.
