The Tri-State Weekly Grand Extra game will be ending with its last draw on Friday, March 9, 2012.
A new game, Lucky for Life, offered by New England’s six lotteries, will go on sale, Sunday, March 11, 2012, and will give players the opportunity to win a prize of a lifetime – up to $1,000 a day, every day, for their entire life.
The Lucky for Life winning number drawings will be held every Monday and Thursday at 10:38 p.m. in Connecticut and aired live on FOX CT in Channel 61 in Hartford. Game results will be announced to New Hampshire Lottery players on www.nhlottery.com.
There will be 10 total ways to win playing Lucky for Life. Players must select five numbers out a field of 40, and one Lucky Ball number out of a field of 21. Those matching all six numbers drawn will win the game’s $1,000 a day for life top prize which will be guaranteed for a minimum of 20 years, but will continued to be paid out for the duration of each winner’s lifetime!
In addition to its extraordinary top prize, Lucky for Life will also feature a $25,000 second prize and other exciting cash prizes ranging from $2,000 to $2. The overall odds of winning a prize in the game will be one in 6.6. While there will not be a cash option offered on the game’s top prize, all lower-tiered prizes will be paid out in one-time, lump sum payments.
The first Lucky for Life drawing will be held on Thursday, March 15, 2012 at 10:38 pm.
