Lotto 6/49 brings back $100,000 A Year For Life Bonus


Lotto 6/49 players will have more chances to win this September, with the return of the $100,000 A Year For Life Bonus draw.

Lotto 6/49's $100,000 A Year For Life Bonus first launched in October, 2011, proving to be very popular with players. Given its success, BCLC is bringing back this extra chance for players to win.

From September 1-29, each Lotto 6/49 ticket gives players two chances to win great prizes. Following each Lotto 6/49 draw in September there will be a bonus draw for the chance to win the $100,000 A Year For Life Bonus prize. Match all six of your numbers with the bonus draw numbers in order to win the bonus prize.

The Lotto 6/49 numbers on your ticket apply for both the regular and bonus draw.

The top prize pays the winner $100,000 every year for life, for a minimum of 20 years. Alternatively, winners can choose a $1.5 million lump sum option. Should there be more than one winner, or if there is a group winner, the lump sum prize option will be offered automatically and it will be shared between the winners.

It's one ticket, two great prizes. As always, remember to say 'Yes' to the extra.
