A young Fairfield man in his early 30s is excited to embark on a new future for him and his family after discovering he is the latest Set for Life winner and will receive $20,000 a month for the next 20 years.
The ecstatic winner was the only First Prize winner in Set for Life draw 839 on Wednesday 22 November 2017.
The man had been oblivious to his win and was hard at work this morning when he was contacted by a NSW Lotteries official.
He was left momentarily speechless at the revelation his bank account would grow by $20,000 a month for the next 20 years, before bursting out into uncontrollable laughter.
“Wow! Thank you!  Thank you! Thank you very much! I don’t know what to say!” he laughed.
“I don’t know what I feel right now! I’m so happy!”    
The man admitted he only started playing Set for Life a month ago, attracted to the prize delivered in regular $20,000 instalments.
“There’s so many things I can do now – I don’t know where to start!” he exclaimed.

“I’ll still work but I want to open my own business and buy a house.  It’ll be great for me and my family. 

“It sets me up for the future!”
The man, who wishes to remain anonymous, purchased his winning 2-game QuickSET online at www.thelott.com – Australia’s official lotteries.
It’s the ninth Set for Life winner in New South Wales since the game was launched in August 2015.  The Fairfield winner will join 27 other national winners who are already enjoying their monthly instalments of the 20-year Set for Life windfall.
