Williamsburg Ticket Wins Prize of $25,000 a Year for Life in Lucky for Life Game

CLIVE, Iowa — Someone who bought a lottery ticket at a Williamsburg convenience store won a prize of $25,000 a year for life in Thursday's drawing of the Lucky for Life® game.

It is Iowa's 18th big win in the Lucky for Life game since its January 2016 debut in our state. The lucky ticket matched the first five numbers but missed the Lucky Ball in Thursday's drawing to win the game's second prize of $25,000 a year for life. The winning ticket was purchased at Casey's, 602 S. Highland St. in Williamsburg.

The winning numbers in the drawing were 1-7-20-21-38 and Lucky Ball 15. Casey's will receive a $500 bonus from the lottery for selling the winning ticket.

Lucky for Life is a $2 game with drawings each night. The game's top two prize levels are described as "lasting as long as you do," meaning that they are truly for life. The minimum guaranteed payout for those two prize levels is 20 years, and there is a lump-sum option for players who would prefer that rather than lifetime annuity payments.

Players in Lucky for Life choose five numbers from a pool of 48 for the white balls and one out of 18 numbers for the Lucky Ball. Players can win the game's top prize of $1,000 a day for life by matching all six numbers selected in one of its drawings. The game's second prize – for matching the first five numbers but missing the Lucky Ball – is $25,000 a year for life. Other prize levels in the game range from $3 up to $5,000.

Prizes at the top two levels in Lucky for Life must be claimed at Iowa Lottery headquarters in Clive. If the winner or winners of the Williamsburg ticket have questions before coming forward to claim the prize, they are welcome to call the lottery at 515-725-7900 or email

Players in Lucky for Life have up to 365 days from the date of the drawing to claim prizes won in Iowa.
