Ticket orders for this year’s Dream Lottery will close midnight Tuesday (June 5), and then it will all be over except for the wait. Two weeks later, on June 20, our region will have a new millionaire.
That means people have just days to get in on a chance at the lottery’s Ultimate Grand Prize of a choice of one of two fully furnished home and cash options (each home option valued at more than one million dollars), or $1 million (all in cash) instead. In addition to the home and furnishings, the London home option includes $200,000 cash and the Grand Bend home option includes $400,000 cash.
The chances to win don’t stop at the million-dollar Ultimate Grand Prize. There are also 12 Grand Prizes, including vehicles, trips and jewellery — each with a cash alternative — that will be awarded at the final draw, along with more than $80,000 in cash and gift cards to be won.
Dream Lottery tickets sell for $50 each, three for $100, nine for $250, and 25 for $500 (the cost of the 25-pack works out to just $20 per ticket). Tickets can be ordered at the dream homes, at participating Shoppers Drug Mart locations, by calling 519-488-7100 or online at www.dreamitwinit.ca.
Full lottery details can be found on the Dream Lottery’s website.
It’s also the last week to visit the Ultimate Dream Grand prize homes. For those wanting to tour the dream homes, they need to visit by next Tuesday. The dream homes will be closed after the final deadline.
The Bridlewood dream home at 2338 Sawgrass Link, London (in Upper Richmond Village at the corner of Richmond Street and Sunningdale Road) is open each day from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m until Tuesday (June 5). The Nicholson Builders dream home at 10154 Pinery Bluff Road in Grand Bend is open 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Thursday to Sunday, and will be closed after Sunday (June 2).
The draw for the homes will be aired live on Wednesday, June 20 during the 6 p.m. newscast on CTV2 London.
