Hey mates, Doug here with your February Set for Life update.

Wow, where do I start!? 

In the last month, we’ve had not one, not two, but THREE division one winners take out that incredible Division One prize of $20,000 a month for 20 years. 

On top of that, we’ve also had 19 division two winners score themselves $5,000 every month for a year each. 

It’s certainly been a thrilling start to 2021!

However, amongst all the excitement a curious puzzle has been teasing us. 

We are yet to unite one of our division one winners with their life-changing prize.

But never fear. Give me a deerstalker hat and pipe and call me Doug Holmes. This is one case I’m determined to crack.

Our mystery begins in Echuca — a town nestled on the banks of the Murray River in northern Victoria.

In the second last week of January, the town was in the grips of a summer heatwave. It was 27 degrees on Monday and by Sunday it was 41. 

Perhaps our winner was dreaming of their own pool, a new air conditioner, or a holiday escape to somewhere cool. 

Whatever their motive, at some point they went through the town centre and arrived at 26 Nish Street where they purchased a Set for Life ticket from Echuca Square Lotto. 

Turns out that ticket would score them the only division one winning entry nationally in draw 1996, drawn Friday 22 January 2021.
Alas, that’s where the case goes cold. 

We’ve not heard a peep from our winner in the 24 days since the time of their win. 

Unfortunately, their ticket was unregistered, which means we have no way of contacting them and must wait until they reveal themselves. 

And so, the game is afoot! We’re encouraging anyone who bought a ticket from Echuca Square Lotto to check their tickets. If you discover you are holding the winning ticket, contact The Lott on 131 868 to begin the process of claiming your prize! 

Thankfully, we have united our other two winners with their Set for Life division one prize. A Canberra Defence Force worker in his 20s and a new Rockhampton retiree will henceforth be joining us in celebrating $20K Day —  the day when all of our winners receive their monthly prize payment. 

With Set for Life draws taking place daily, there’s a chance every night of the week where you too could win $20,000 a month for 20 years! 

Just don’t forget to register your entries to your player card or online account. If another division one win strikes, we want to make sure we can let you know!
