Playing the lottery through the internet worked out in a big way for one Michigander.

According to the Michigan Lottery, last week an unidentified individual won $25,000 a year for the rest of their life from the aptly titled Lucky For Life game after purchasing a ticket online. The winner actually has two options for getting paid: annual $25,000 payments for a minimum of 20 years or life, whichever is greater; or a lump-sum cash payment of $390,000.

The winning ticket matched all five white balls drawn (11-12-16-38-48), marking the eighth time this year that a Michigan Lottery player won the jackpot in the game, which costs just $2 to play. Drawings take place at 10:38 p.m. all seven nights of the week, as the game expanded from twice-a-week drawings to every night earlier this summer.

Even larger prize possible in Lucky For Life

The aforementioned prize isn’t the largest possible in the game. To win the game’s top prize of $1,000 a day for life, players must match all five winning numbers ranging from 1 to 48, plus one Lucky Ball ranging from 1 to 18. Players who match all five winning numbers, but not the Lucky Ball, win $25,000 a year for life or the $390,000 lump sum.

In April, a Michigander won $1,000 a day for life — also playing via the internet.

Lucky For Life is one of nine draw-style online games from the Michigan Lottery, a list that also includes Mega Millions and Powerball, the multi-state jackpots that can award 10-figure prizes. The Michigan Lottery also offers 128 instant games over the internet, with $500,000 prizes possible in Keno and many other games offering roughly $100,000 top prizes.
