A lucky Brit will pocket £10,000 a month for the next 30 years after a massive National Lottery win.

The winning ticketholder in Monday's (October 3) Set for Life draw matched all five numbers and the Life Ball to bag the top prize of £3.6million, which will be paid in monthly instalments over the next three decades.

Andy Carter, the National Lottery's senior winners' adviser, is now advising all Set for Life players to check their tickets.

He said: "Wow, we have a top prize winner on Set For Life – they can now celebrate winning £10,000 every month for 30 years. Players are being urged to check their tickets and to give us a call to claim tonight's fantastic Set For Life top prize.

"Thanks to National Lottery players, more than £30m is generated every week for good causes across the country. This supports everything from local projects making a difference where you live, to our nations' athletes at the recent Commonwealth Games."

For £1.50 per ticket, players can pick five numbers from 1-47 and a Life Ball between 1-15 to be in with a chance of winning.

On Monday, the winning Set For Life numbers were revealed as 1, 13, 17, 37, 44 and the bonus Life Ball was 4.

Nobody matched all five Set For Life numbers minus the bonus ball for the second biggest prize, which is set at £120,000 – receiving £10,000 every month for one year.

However, 37 people matched four Set For Life numbers plus the Life Ball to receive £250 each, and 248 players matched four numbers minus the Life Ball to win £50 each.

The prize breakdown continues to work down with 1,224 people matching three Set For Life numbers plus the Life Ball for £30, while 11,061 matched three numbers without the bonus ball for £20.

If you match two Set For Life numbers and the Life Ball, like 17,408 people did, then you will win £10, while two matching numbers without the Life Ball saw 151,598 successful tickets collect £5.

Draws take place at 8pm every Monday and Thursday.
