How do I play Set for Life?

When buying your Set for Life entry you first choose the way you want to play.

  • A QuickSET is the easiest way to play, where the number of games you play is fixed and your numbers are randomly generated for you.
  • A Marked entry lets you choose how many SETS you would like to play (the minimum is 2), plus you can choose the numbers that are meaningful to you, and even save them as a Favourite for next time. You can play up to 4 SETS by marking a coupon in-store, or up to 50 SETS when creating your own entry online.

Once you've decided which way to play, you can choose when you want to start your 7 day entry and how long you want to play for.

  • If you're planning a holiday or won't be able to make it to your local store, you can purchase an entry into an Advance draw, or play your entry across multiple weeks with a Multi-week entry.
  • If you play online you can subscribe to your entry to automatically play into every draw.

How do I check my Set for Life ticket?
