What would you do if you won $1 million a year for life? The Massachusetts Lottery recently announced the launch of its latest $50 scratch-off ticket.

The instant game – Lifetime Millions – features a fantastic prize of $1 million a year for life. The $1 million for life annuity jackpot prize is guaranteed for a minimum of 20 years and may continue longer. There is also a one-time, lump-sum option for the jackpot, which is a total of $15.4 million. Mass residents can now purchase this game from lottery retailers throughout the state. There are three $1 million a year for life prizes available in this game.

State Treasurer Deborah B. Goldberg, Chair of the Massachusetts State Lottery Commission, said:

We released our first $50 lottery ticket last year, and it quickly became the best-selling ticket in the country.

She added that Massachusetts Lottery players had been asking for another chance to win big, and that's exactly what they have been given with Lifetime Millions.
