DAILY GRAND IS CANADA'S NEW NATIONAL LOTTERY
TORONTO, Oct. 17, 2016 /CNW/ - How grand would it be to win $1,000 every day for the rest of your life? That's the top prize with DAILY GRAND, Canada's newest national lottery. Ticket sales start Tuesday, October 18 for the first bi-weekly draw on Thursday, October 20 and then with draws following every Monday and Thursday night.
At $3 per play, DAILY GRAND players will select five main numbers from 1 to 49 and one Grand Number from 1 to 7. The grand prize is $1,000 a day for the life of the winner who matches all five main numbers plus the Grand Number drawn, and the second prize is $25,000 a year for the life of the winner who matches only the five main numbers. Players have additional chances to win including cash prizes ranging from $4 to $1,000 as well as free plays.
"DAILY GRAND offers an everyday winning experience," said Wendy Montgomery OLG Vice President, Lottery Marketing & Sales. "With $1,000 a day from DAILY GRAND, winners can look forward to making the most of today and every day to come."
The grand prize winner can opt for either an annuity-based prize equal to $1,000 day for life (minimum 20 years) or a single cash payment option of $7 million. If there is more than one winner per DAILY GRAND draw, the winners will equally share the single cash payment. The secondary prize winner can choose either an annuity-based prize equal to $25,000 a year for life (minimum 20 years) or receive a single cash payment of $500,000 and a single cash payment will be shared if there are multiple winners.
The odds of winning the grand prize are approximately 1 in 13.34 million and the overall odds of winning a prize are approximately 1 in 6.8. DAILY GRAND tickets are available at approximately 10,000 lottery retailers and can be purchased up to 10:30pm Eastern time on draw nights.
