Win big and move in

You may not be able to buy a home in the Lower Mainland, but you might be able to win one.

And if you don't want to move, two of the prize homes in the Millionaire Oceanview Home Lottery are in the Central Okanagan.

Vancouver General Hospital and the UBC Hospital Foundation announced tickets for the Millionaire Lottery are now on sale.

Money raised from the lottery goes to funding innovative research, advancing specialized adult health care and purchasing critical medical equipment at Vancouver General Hospital, UBC Hospital, GF Strong Rehabilitation Centre, Vancouver Community Health Services and Vancouver Coastal Health Research Institute. 

“VGH is the province’s largest and most specialized health referral centre for adults, and every year they provide over 600,000 people across BC with urgent care,” said Barbara Grantham, VGH & UBC Hospital Foundation president and CEO. “VGH and UBC Hospital Foundation depends on the funds that the Millionaire Lottery raises through community support to pay for research that can lead to new discoveries in patient care.”

The grand prize winner of the lottery can choose one of seven luxury homes located in Tsawwassen, South Surrey, White Rock/Sooke (two-home package), Sydney, Downtown Kelowna, West Kelowna, and Vancouver. 

The winner also has the option of accepting $2.7 million in tax-free cash instead of taking the prize home.

“This is the very first year that the Millionaire Lottery has ever had a prize home in Tsawwassen,” said Todd Talbot, Millionaire Lottery spokesperson. “It is over 5,300 square feet, with four bedrooms, and a one-bedroom suite, which would be great for in-laws, guests or a nanny. The prize home also includes a huge rec room with a billiards table, and a wine room.”

Millionaire Lottery tickets are two for $100, five for $175, 10 or $250 and 25 for $500.

The lottery also includes extra games: the 50/50 PLUS lottery with a maximum prize payout up to $1,548,000 (depending on the number of tickets sold), and the Daily Cash PLUS game returns with 105 days of winning, with a value of all prizes being $300,000.

To date, the Millionaire Lottery has raised more than $50 million for VGH & UBC Hospital Foundation.

Ticket sales for the Millionaire Lottery run until midnight, Jan. 11, 2019. Individuals can purchase their tickets online, by phone, 604-602-5848, or 1-888-445-5825, or in-person at any London Drugs.
