That’s right: The second-tier prize in the Lucky for Life game is $25,000 a year for life.

According to the Idaho Lottery, a ticket bearing that prize was sold in Ada County. The ticket matches the first five numbers from Thursday’s Lucky for Life draw, but not the Lucky Ball.

Those numbers: 1, 4, 16, 28, 29. The Lucky Ball was 10.

The Lucky for Life game began in January 2015. This will be the third time an Idaho ticket carried the $25,000/year prize. The game’s top prize is $1,000 per day for life.

Thursday’s winner has 180 days to accept their prize, Idaho Lottery officials say.
