How to Play

Choose 5 numbers from 1–48 and 1 Lucky Ball number from 1–18. You can Quick Pick or choose your own lucky numbers. Match all 5 numbers and the Lucky Ball to win the grand prize of $1,000 a day for life.

Lucky for Life Prizes

There are 10 ways to win a Lucky for Life prize. For example, match five out of 5 numbers without the Lucky Ball to win $25,000 a year for life. Not too shabby! Matching 4 out of 5 numbers plus the Lucky Ball earns you $5,000. The bottom line: your odds of winning some pocket money are 1 in 7.8.
