Lucky for LifeLucky for Life: Multi-state Lucky for Life lottery game starting daily drawings in JulyRating:

By Kate Northrop

This morning, the state lotteries participating in the multi-state Lucky for Life lottery game announced that players will get daily opportunities to win $1,000 a day for life starting this summer.

The game, which currently holds drawings twice a week on Monday and Thursday evenings, will move to a daily format starting Jul. 19, 2021.

"The decision by the game group to add drawings increases the opportunities for players to win $1,000 a day for life and reinforces the overall brand nationwide," Nebraska Lottery Director Brian Rockey said in a press release. "We also expect to generate additional proceeds for good causes across Nebraska."

Players should also be aware that the amount of drawings that can be purchased in advance for Lucky for Life will be temporarily reduced in order to prepare for the draw format change, the Lottery explained. Starting today, Apr. 26, the maximum number of drawings that can be purchased on a multi-draw ticket will decrease by one after each successive drawing.

The affected multi-draw purchases will revert back to normal on Fri., Jul. 16, when players will once more be able to buy tickets for up to 12 weeks of drawings, or 84 draws.

According to the Lottery, the Nebraska Lottery became the 25th lottery to join the multi-state Lucky for Life game in August 2017 and has recorded one $25,000 a year for life winner and 55 $5,000 winning Lucky for Life tickets sold in the state. As of now, there are 26 lotteries that offer the game, including Nebraska.

Just last week, the South Carolina Lottery announced that it will end its participation in the Lucky for Life game, with its final drawing scheduled for Mon., Jun. 28, 2021.

Everything else about the game will remain the same. Tickets will still cost $2 each and the prizes and odds will not change. Drawings currently take place on Mondays and Thursdays at 9:38 pm CST and will change to the new daily format on Jul. 19, 2021.

    It's like six and one half dozen of the other with LFL vs C4L.   I like that the cashball #on C4L goes from 1-4 and better prize payouts over all.   Memory says the odds are harder with Cash 4 Life, so take it or leave it.

      Lucky for life is 1 and 30 million chance to win the Jackpot where Cash 4 Life is 1 and 21 million.

        Well, if you choose to play every day, at $2 a ticket it most certainly will hurt your wallet.

        And yes, it will give players more "opportunities" to win $1000 a day for life. With the odds that game has, it will most certainly give the lottery more "opportunities" to make more $$$.

        That is why Texas has 4 draws a day for Pick 3, Daily 4, and All or Nothing. They ain't stupid.

          Actually the Lucky for Life payouts are twice as good as Cash for Life.  The only one that Cash for Life beats is 3 numbers on a line for $25 vs: $20. The overall odds are better for Cash for Life because of only 4 bonus balls, but there are 12 more white balls to contend with if one is hoping for the jackpot and I expect fewer of those lower prizes are being won compared to Lucky. The odds of getting just the white balls right for the 5/5 are 7 million to 1 for Cash for Life  vs: 1.8 million for Lucky.  I'll take Lucky myself, but I don't like the daily format at all.

              AWFUL DECISION!  I currently play - twice a week every drawing.  But since I can not afford to buy tickets if this game goes daily, I will completely stop buying tickets. Instead I will use the money I would have spent on Lucky For Life in my states lotto 47 game.

                Or you could just keep playing twice a week. You don't have to play every drawing just because you can.

                  So, Now with L4L going daily like C4L...
                  Will SC reverse its decision to end L4L
                  OR...will they jump to C4L..
                  OR...do they figure pumping up their new features on their pick 3 and 4 games more will offset the loss of L4L?

                  Any guesses?

                    I really have no data to back it up, but my wild guess is that Pick3 and Pick 4 games are way more popular than jackpot games. 

                    On a unrelated side note scratchers are by far the biggest sellers for state lotteries.

                      The thing is if my chosen set of numbers were drawn on a day I hadn't bought a ticket I would be very upset, putting it mildly. 

                      Better to not play it at all. I will instead use the money I would have spent on LFL on my states lotto 47 game as extra plays.

                        No way I could handle 4 draws a day of those games in my state - I don't want to spend that much haha

                        If I did play lucky daily that would be $60 a month - sheesh

                        I wonder if they pushed for daily because there have not been that many jackpot winners.

                          I KNOW EXACTLY WHAT YOU MEAN.

                          It hurts to think about.

                          One time a few years back I forgot to buy my ticket with my numbers for PB - I made the effort to purposefully NOT see what the draw numbers were for that day - haha.
