Nothing but Smiles for Surrey Daily Grand Winner


Surrey resident Sukhwinder Sidhu is smiling from ear to ear since learning he won $25,000 a year for life as part of the September 17th Daily Grand  Bonus Draw promotion.

Sidhu discovered his win after checking his ticket using the Lotto! App. “I saw that it said $25,000 a year for life and I was a little surprised,” he said, noting that he immediately shared the good news with his wife. “She thought I was joking, but after seeing the numbers she was just as surprised as I was.”

Sidhu matched 5 out of 5 numbers to win one of the Bonus Draw prizes on the September 17, 2018 Daily Grand draw. He had the option to choose $25,000 a year for life or a lump sum of $500,000, the latter of which he chose so he can start enjoying his full prize immediately.

“I will be treating my family to a nice dinner and surprising my kids with some new toys and games,” Sidhu said. Additional plans include building a new house and taking some extra time off to spend with loved ones. “I moved to Canada over 15 years ago and life has been really busy ever since. I’m looking forward to taking it easy for bit,” he added.

Sidhu’s win occurred during the first of two Daily Grand Bonus Draws happening this week. For a limited time only, Daily Grand is bringing more chances to win $25,000 a year for the rest of your life. All tickets purchased for tonight’s September 20 Daily Grand Draw will be entered automatically for the Daily Grand Bonus Draws.
