Ohio Lottery Player Wins $25K a Year for Life Playing Lucky for Life

"I'm so excited"

A man from Reynoldsburg, OH won $25,000 a year for LIFE playing Lucky for Life on Jackpocket.

The player told Team Jackpocket that he was "so excited" and couldn't believe this was really happening.

"I have a few business ideas that I've been praying about,” he said.

His Lucky for Life ticket matched 5 out of 5 regular numbers in the April 16, 2024 drawing, only missing the Lucky Ball, to win the game's second prize. As luck would have it, he randomly picked his numbers himself. 

His next big decision to make? Lump sum or annuity lottery payout. The lucky player could opt for the “for life” payout or go with the cash option of $390,000.
