Where can I play Set for Life?


How do I play Set for Life?


1. The first step to playing Set for Life is deciding if you want to play a QuickSET or a Marked Entry.

  • A QuickSET is the easiest way to play, where the number of games you play is fixed and your numbers are randomly generated for you.
  • A Marked entry lets you choose how many sets you would like to play (minimum 2), plus you can select the numbers that are meaningful to you, and even save them as a Favourite for next time. You can play up to 4 sets by marking a coupon in-store, or up to 50 sets when creating your own entry online.

2. You can also choose how long you want to play for.

  • If you're planning a holiday or won't be able to make it to your local store, you can purchase an entry into an Advance draw, or play your entry across multiple draws with a Multi-Week entry.
  • If you play online you can subscribe to automatically play into every draw.
