Punters could be ‘Set for Life’ with Camelot’s new game

'Set for Life' play slip

Camelot has confirmed the launch of a new annuity-style game, to be called ‘Set For Life’.

The draw-based game will offer a top prize of £10,000 a month for 30 years. Tickets will cost £1.50 per line and will go on sale on Friday March 15. Draws will be held every Monday and Thursday, with the first draw taking place on Monday March 18 (subject to regulatory approval). Players will be able to buy tickets through any of the usual channels.

Camelot is raising awareness of the new game via advertising, in-store signs, posters and other marketing materials.

Players will pick five main numbers from 1 to 47, and one ‘Life Ball’ from 1 to 10, and have the chance to win fixed prizes ranging from the top prize of £10,000 a month for 30 years to £5 for matching two main numbers.

Punters have a one in 12.4 chance of winning a prize of some description. To scoop the big boy, you’re staring down odds of one in 15,339,390.

A dedicated page on The National Lottery website offers more information about the new game, including a full breakdown of the prize tiers.

Camelot CEO Nigel Railton said: “Annuity games really appeal to a growing number of people who like the idea of winning a prize paid out in regular instalments over the long term, and are very successful in other countries. We think that Set For Life will be just as popular here in the UK.

“Most importantly, it rounds off what is now a more appealing and balanced portfolio of games that offers something for everyone.”
