Imagine winning $1,000 a day for life with Daily Grand, Canada’s newest lottery


Poll shows most would buy a house, travel the world and donate to charities

What would you do if you won a $1,000 a day for the rest of your life? British Columbians over the age of 19 now have the chance to imagine what that would feel like with the launch of the new national lottery game, Daily Grand! This exciting new game has a true for life grand prize of $1,000 a day, empowering winners to make the most of every day.

BCLC asked players across B.C. what they would do if they won Daily Grand through a Vision Critical survey. 40 per cent of players said they would buy a new house, 54 per cent would donate to charity, 52 per cent would celebrate by travelling the world, and 37 per cent would ditch household chores by hiring a cleaner.
