Hot Numbers

Lucky For Life has updated its drawings from every Monday and Thursday to every day. The increased number of drawings will help the lottery players to bet on their favorite numbers every day thereby increasing your possibility to win the lottery prizes.  You just have to pay $2 for one game and select five numbers from 1 to 48 and one Lucky Ball from 1 to 18, or can choose a Quick Pick and have your numbers randomly generated. If you match all five main numbers plus the Lucky Ball, on the day of the drawing, then you have won the Jackpot.
