The Set for Life lottery

The article, which featured in the Sun Money section of The Sun, explains how the new Lifetime Lottery could result in happier winner stories, following from the disastrous revelations about winner flops such as checkout girl, Callie Rogers, who blew her £1.9 million win on make-up, clothes and cars.

The Set For Life draw was designed to appeal to players who would prefer stable, regular payments rather than one huge jackpot. Players are to pick five main numbers from 1 to 47, and one ‘life ball’ from 1 to 10. To hit the jackpot, all numbers must match.

Prizeology MD, Sarah Burns, was interviewed for this piece to discuss why receiving a £10,000-a-month “salary” for 30 years could be more beneficial. She said that although winning a huge jackpot can be exciting, “it can be easy to blow a large win if you don’t have the experience or support to spend wisely.”

“Even though the winner won’t be able to buy a new house or car immediately, a monthly sum is still a life-changing amount of money and the winner might never need to work again.”

Sounds good enough to us.

I started working here fresh out of Sixth Form and ready to give the working world a good go. I had completed placements within some marketing agencies previously, so I had an idea […]
