Anne-Marie Gazzola won $675,000 playing Set for Life

Retiree ready to cruise to the Mediterranean now that’s she Set for Life!


The plans to set sail are in the works for the most recent winner of a Set for Life Scratch & Win ticket.

 Anne Marie Gazzola didn’t realize she had won when she checked her ticket. She was so eager to see if her ticket was a winner she only scratched the barcode and assumed she must have just won a little prize. “It wasn’t until I talked to someone on the phone that I realized how much I had won” explained Gazzola, “I’m just so very happy! I’m on top of the world!”

Gazzola was given a complementary Set for Life ticket at Starlight Casino and still can’t believe her win. “To be honest, I can’t really comprehend what’s happening” she smiled. After discussing the options, Gazzola and her husband decided to take a lump sum of $675,000.     

With the prize Gazzola and her husband plan on investing most of the money, buying a new car and taking that trip they’ve been talking about so long, a cruise to the Mediterranean.

Set for Life is the Scratch & Win game that offers players the chance to win a top prize of $1,000 a week for 25 years.
