How to win the lottery in BitLife

You get an achievement for winning, but there’s no fast way to win the lottery.


For most people, if they were offered the chance to make life easy, they would take it in a heartbeat. There are very few ways to make that happen in real life, but one of them is to play the lottery, which for the incredibly lucky few, has made their life that much easier.

BitLife is no different. You can’t always achieve fame and fortune through graft alone, so what better way to get rich than to win the lottery? 

But how do you win the lottery? Unfortunately, there is a fairly simple answer, and that’s to keep buying tickets.

You can enter by heading to the ‘Activities’ menu on the right side of the main hub, and tapping on the ‘Lottery’ activity. From here, you can choose to buy a single ticket, or as a bulk of 10. Each one costs $5, so the most you can buy of them is in $50 increments.

There are no tricks to this, and no way to cheat the system. Like the lottery in real life, the only way you can win the lottery in BitLife is to keep playing it. Prepare yourself to see the statement, “You did not win the lottery jackpot” a lot. Thankfully, you can keep entering as many times as you want until you do.

Be aware that it can take quite some time to buy tickets at a high cost continuously. For perspective, this writer spent $15,000 on lottery tickets in one life without a winner.

Eventually, though, with some luck, you can win the lottery, and the huge jackpot can be yours in BitLife. You will also unlock an achievement for winning the lottery, so those hunting achievements will want to persist with it.
