"Check your CT Lottery 'Lucky for Life' draw game tickets," is the advice from the CT Lottery's President and CEO, Anne M. Noble, "If you have the combination of 03-09-10-11-34 with a Lucky Ball number of 19 printed on your April 30 drawing ticket, you've just won $1,000 A DAY, EVERY DAY, for the rest of your LIFE!"
"Lucky's" top prize was worth an incredible $1,000 a day, every day, for the rest of its winner's natural life. Paid on a weekly basis, the winner will receive $7,000 a week (pre-taxes) from the CT Lottery for as long as he/she lives.

With a top prize of up to $1,000 a day, every day for life, the game offers players a prize unparalleled in the lottery industry.”
