Last Updated: December 9, 2018

Lucky for Life is a multi-state lottery game. To play, you must pick 5 numbers, each between 1-48, as well as a Lucky Ball number from 1-18.

Similar to Cash4Life, matching all 6 draw numbers means scoring $1,000 a day for life. Matching just 5 numbers (instead of all 6) gets you the second prize, which is $25,000 a year for life.
