TWO Brits have finally won the top prize in the National Lottery’s new £3million game.
Set For Life had been criticised for not producing a winner since its launch two months ago.

The ticket holders both scooped the top prize of £10,000 a month for 30 years on Thursday. They have claimed their winnings but have chosen to stay anonymous.
Lottery organisers Camelot launched the £1.50-a-play twice-weekly game in March.
Players pick five main numbers from one to 47, and one Life Ball from one to ten with odds of one in 15.3million. Nobody matched all numbers last week — for the 20th week in a row.
But a “super chance” rule meant the top prize went to players on the rank below who matched five numbers.

The usual second prize of £10,000 a month for a year had been won 19 times. Prizes start at £5 for matching two main numbers.
A Camelot spokesman said last night: “Thursday’s Set For Life draw was one to remember as we crowned the very first top prizewinners.
“They can now live the good life with an extra £10,000 month after month.”
