TORONTO, Jan. 30, 2012 /CNW/ - The Canadian Cancer Society Ontario
Division has launched its biggest daily lottery ever. Every day in
April, three lucky ticket holders are going to win big, because there

"This year's prize line-up is nothing short of spectacular, with daily
cash prizes, daily travel prizes and the top Car a Day prize," said
Janice Gray, Manager, Lottery, Canadian Cancer Society Ontario
Division. "There are no radios, binoculars or toasters in this lottery.
Every prize is a big prize and all of them can be taken as cash."
There are more cars and more big cash prizes than any other charity
lottery in Ontario. The Society is proud to offer ticket holders the
best chance to win a big prize.
Three bonus prizes will also be given away every week in April. A
$10,000 travel prize will be awarded on Wednesdays, $25,000 in cash
will be awarded on Thursdays, and a second car prize will be awarded
"In addition to the daily and weekly prizes, we are offering 10 amazing
grand prizes with three super grand prizes of $1 million each," added
