What could you do with an extra $1,000? How about an extra $1,000 every single day? Starting today, a new lottery game will give Canadians a reason to dream about a windfall that goes on for the rest of their lives. DAILY GRAND offers prizes that range from a free ticket to the grand prize of $1,000 a day for life.

DAILY GRAND tickets go on sale on Tuesday, October 18, at retail locations across Canada. Draws will take place every Monday and Thursday. The first draw will be on Thursday, October 20.

Along with the top prize, DAILY GRAND offers a second prize of $25,000 a year for life.

"The two top prizes on DAILY GRAND are true ‘for life’ wins," said Andrea Marantz, spokesperson for Western Canada Lottery Corporation (WCLC). "The payments are guaranteed for at least 20 years, but they could go on much longer."

Winners in the top two prize categories have their choice of the annuity-based prize or a one-time payment: $7 million for the top prize, and $500,000 for the second prize.

DAILY GRAND is the first new national lottery draw game since 2009. It joins LOTTO 6/49 – drawn every Wednesday and Saturday – and LOTTO MAX – drawn each Friday.

Lottery players can buy their DAILY GRAND tickets starting on Tuesday, October 18 at retail locations. Tickets are available until 9:30 pm CT / 8:30 pm MT / 7:30 pm PT on the evening of the draw.
