History is made in B.C. with the first winning Daily Grand ticket purchased in Mission


A winning ticket worth $25,000 a year for life was purchased in Mission, B.C. for the first national Daily Grand draw on October 20, 2016. The winner matched 5 out of 5 numbers missing only the ‘Grand Number’ to win the secondary prize of $25,000 a year for life! The grand prize is $1,000 a day for life and was not won on this draw.

The winner’s name and purchase location will be announced after the winner comes forward to claim their prize. Winners have one year from the draw date printed on the ticket to claim their prize.

To celebrate this new national game, BCLC is launching a contest asking people how they would spend $1,000 in a day. Winning entrants will be awarded with $1,000 and asked to submit a video of their grand day spending it for a chance to also win a $10,000 grand prize. Start dreaming – what would you do with $1,000 in a day?
