BISMARCK – North Dakota’s first Lucky for Life prize from Monday’s draw was claimed late Tuesday afternoon by two lottery players.

The winners from Rolla and Belcourt in far northeast North Dakota, who chose to remain anonymous, hit it big with a quick pick ticket and matched five of six numbers.

The players opted for the one time, lump sum cash payment of $390,000.  The cash payment was split between the two players, with each receiving $195,000 before taxes.

The players also could have collected $25,000 a year for life.

Lucky for Life was launched in North Dakota on Jan. 31. The Lucky for Life top prize for the Thursday, March 31, drawing is $1,000 a day for life.
