‘Lucky For Life’ Winning Lottery Ticket Sold in North Dakota
One North Dakota resident is officially 'Lucky For Life' after purchasing a winning lottery ticket from a Farmers Union Oil location in Drake.
The winning ticket matched five of the white balls, but not the Lucky Ball, which means it's worth $25,000 every year for the lifetime of the ticket holder.
If the winning ticket would have also matched the Lucky Ball, the ticket would have been worth $1,000 every day for the lifetime of the ticket holder, which is the game's grand prize.
According to a press release from the North Dakota Lottery, the prize has yet to be claimed. The winning ticket holder has 180 to claim their prize, which is the second that has been awarded in North Dakota since the state joined the multi-state game earlier this year.
Once the player claims their prize, they will have two ways of accepting it: as a lump sum of $390,000 or as an annuity payment of $25,000 a year for life, paid for a minimum of 20 years.
The North Dakota Lottery made the announcement that a winning 'Lucky For Life' ticket had been sold in the state on Tuesday, August 9th.
