Prince George woman has OMG moment after winning the $500,000 Daily Grand Bonus Draw


Melinda Voss of Prince George caused quite a stir in her home when she discovered she won the Daily Grand Bonus Draw.

“I screamed and started yelling ‘Oh my God! Oh my God,’” laughed Voss. “Even my golden retriever started to get excited because I kept yelling ‘Oh my God!’”

Voss won one of the promotional Bonus Prizes available on the June 8, 2017 Daily Grand draw. She had the choice of taking a prize of $25,000-a-year for life or a lump sum of $500,000.

Voss chose the $500,000 lump sum because she wants to use her winnings right away to help her family.

“I’m excited because I really want to help out my mom,” smiled Voss. “Then I’m going to set up a fund so my children and grandchildren are set up for the future.”

The winning Daily Grand ticket was purchased at Foothills Foods in Prince George.
