on Canada's newest and most unique lottery game ever, MILLIONAIRE LIFE!
Available throughout the month of February, MILLIONAIRE LIFE will award

will also offer four second-prizes of $1 Million and 34 prizes of $100,000.

The unique features on MILLIONAIRE LIFE don't stop with the top prize:

player in Canada.
- Winning numbers will be drawn only from numbers sold, guaranteeing a

- $1.4 Million in Early Bird prizes will be available to players who
purchase tickets in the game's first two weeks (February 1st to 14th).
- Subsidiary prizes will be available for matching the first six or last
two digits of the Top Prize winning number drawn.
- Players will be able to choose between three price points: one
Selection for $5; three Selections for $10 or seven Selections for $20.
"We believe the four-week MILLIONAIRE LIFE game will have strong appeal
to our players," added Barrett. "The game has an exciting and unique format
and offers approximately $35 Million in prizes. It will be different than any
other product we've offered before."
MILLIONAIRE LIFE tickets go on sale Thursday, February 1 at lottery
retail and will be available until 10 p.m. (AST) on Wednesday, February 28.
The game's draw - for both the Early Bird and main prizes - will be conducted
later that evening in Montreal.
