A Narangba man going about his morning was interrupted with the news he had won First Prize in Set for Life and will now receive $20,000 a month for the next twenty years.

The Narangba entry was the only First Prize winning entry in Set for Life draw 916 on Thursday 7 February 2018 and is the second winning entry who won the Set for Life First Prize in the last six days.

Speaking to a Golden Casket official this morning to confirm the win, the happy winner couldn’t contain his shock at discovering he was now Set for Life.  

“Are you kidding me? What do I do with that!?” the man exclaimed in surprise.  

“You’re telling me I’ve won Set for Life?


“I buy a ticket each week and have been playing Set for Life since it started. It’s definitely the biggest win I’ve had!”

When asked how the thrilled winner planned to spend $20,000 a month for 20 years the Narangba man confessed he was still reeling from the news of the win.  

“I have absolutely no idea! I’ll find something to do with it! You don’t need to worry about that,” he laughed.

The Narangba man is one of six First Prize wins to land this calendar year, and the third Queenslander to claim the prize during the time period. He is the 34th First Prize winner nationally since the game began.  

The winning entry was purchased at Narangba Newsagency, Shop 5, 32-36 Main Street, Narangba.  

Narangba Newsagency owner, Tony Massie, said he was thrilled his outlet had sold the winning entry.

“It feels great I can tell you! It’s our first big one!” he exclaimed.  

“I think I am more excited than the person who won it. I rang all of our staff to let them know we’ve sold a big one and they are all thrilled as well.  

“We’ve put signs and balloons up and have been telling all of our customers too.  

“We’ve been here about six years and have sold a few smaller prizes but this is our first First Prize and we couldn’t be happier.”  

Across the country, the Queensland winner held the only entry that won First Prize in Set for Life draw 916 on Thursday 7 February 2018, which offers a guaranteed First Prize of $20,000 a month for 20 years for up to four winners in each draw.  

The winning numbers in Set for Life draw 9416 were 28, 15, 27, 9, 25, 31, 5 and 12, with the bonus numbers 13 and 33.
