It’s exactly what Oz Lotteries winner found attractive about Set for Life.
Moving to Play Online
He’s joined Oz Lotteries about half a year ago when he was looking for a quick and easy way to buy his regular lotto tickets. The man in his 50’s shared that he sometimes struggled to get to the shops in time to buy his tickets as he worked late or he was stuck in traffic on his way home.
“It was a hassle. Sometimes I’ve missed on big draws cos I couldn’t make it to the shops in time.”
He discovered Oz Lotteries had all the tickets options he usually played (plus a few more he didn’t know about before), plus the convenience of buying online whenever he wanted. He tried by playing a few different games including the big ones like Powerball, Oz Lotto and Saturday Lotto. The man was excited to discover Lucky Lotteries and charity lotteries. But he stayed true to his habit of playing a 16 x game Set for Life ticket weekly.
“I like how you buy one ticket for the whole week.”
The lucky player shared that he’d usually go online on Sunday nights to check results and replay his ticket for next week. But he least expected that his regular ticket would finally deliver a Division 1 win in Set for Life draw 2342 on Monday 3 January 2022.
How it Feels to be Set for Life
When the Oz Lotteries team called the winner, he was completely speechless. He was aware of his win because he received the email notification the night before. But he was still in complete shock and disbelief.
“This is… Oh, wow! Oh… Goodness… I mean… Oh, gimme a minute, would you?”
The winner was thankful for the thorough explanation of what happens next and what he needs to do to claim his prize. He really appreciated Oz Lotteries Customer Support team‘s time in talking him through whats and hows.
“I’ve never won anything big before. This was really helpful.”
The lucky winner was thrilled that he’ll now be seeing $20,000 land in his account monthly for the next 20 years.
“So happy I don’t have to worry about money anymore! I think I might retire early!”
