The rest of the life of a lucky winner is sorted thanks to the Lucky for Life ticket they won.
This is the second time this month that a player in Michigan has acquired the Lucky for Life jackpot. The blessed player had bought the ticket online through the Michigan Lottery Website. They ended up winning the jackpot by matching the five draw numbers 15-19-28-30-48 and the lucky ball, 05.
The winner has a tough choice to make, that is whether to be paid a lump sum amount or receive the daily prize. They can choose to get $1,000 a day for 20 years or the remainder of their life, whichever of the two is greater. This choice would leave them with a payout of $365,000 every year for the next 20 years or more. The other option they have is to receive a total amount of $5.75 million as a one-time payment.
The lucky winner, however, is yet to contact the officials at the Michigan Lottery. They will have to schedule an appointment with the state lottery in order to claim their big win. Players can claim their prizes up to one year from the date of the lottery drawing.
The Lucky for Life ticket costs $2 and is currently available in 26 states and Washington D.C. Interest players can visit the Michigan Lottery’s official website from where they can purchase tickets and get the latest information. There are first and second prize winners, where the first prize is $1,000 per day while the second winner gets $25,000 annually for life.
