# Win For Life Lottery General Information

 Win For Life is a multiple-state (NOT Multi-State Lottery Association (MUSL)) lottery game played in 3 states with a grand prize of \$1,000 a week for life. The Win For Life game consists of one sets of numbers where the player selects 6 numbers 1 through 42. The lottery draws the six winning numbers and then an additional Bonus ball (Free Ball) will be drawn from the remaining 36 numbers. If you match this 7th number your lower-tier prizes will increase as shown on the prize table below. The Bonus ball does not affect the jackpot prize. Win For Life costs \$1 per game.

Win For Life drawing method: The winning Win For Life numbers are drawn using mechanical machines and ball sets. Six balls are drawn out of a drum with 42 numbered balls. Then an additional bonus ball (called the Free Ball) is drawn from the same set.

Select 6 numbers from 1 through 42. Alternatively, you can mark the Quick Pick (QP) (Easy Pick (EP) in some states) to let the Lottery terminal randomly select your numbers for you. If you want to play more numbers, then fill out panels B, C, etc. Each one costs \$1.

If you make an error, DO NOT ERASE, instead mark the Void box for that play.

A typical winning number is reported as,
03-06-17-18-27-38 FB 08, or as 3-6-17-18-27-38 ** 8
