About Set for Life
Set For Life is currently Australia's newest lottery. Its inaugural draw was held on Friday 7 August 2015. The game was originally announced in February 2015.
Set For Life differs significantly from other Australian lotteries, in that the top prize is not paid out in one lump sum, but rather as a fixed sum of $20,000 AUD per month over the course of 20 years. Other prize divisions are paid in full, however. There are eight prize tiers in total and draws are held every single day at 9pm AEST.
Tatts Chief Executive Robbie Cook told the Sydney Morning Herald at the time that "it's everyday dreaming. It's not somebody looking to stop working and hang up their shoes." He also told the publication that the game was specifically aimed at, and designed for, a younger audience, primarily those aged between 20 and 40.
Starting on Draw 1691 on March 23rd, 2020, the game was redesigned, which changed the bonus numbers to supplementaries and increasing the numbers from 37 to 44, also, a new Division 2 prize is introduced which rewards the winner the fixed sum of $5,000 AUD per one month for one year, for a grand total of $60,000 AUD. If there are four winners, they share the total Division 2 prize pool.

Two supplementaries numbers are drawn after the main 7 numbers, giving 9 numbers drawn in total. These numbers are used to determine other prizes.
