1. WHAT IS THE DAILY GRAND BONUS DRAW?

On September 17 and September 20, 2018, DAILY GRAND is offering Bonus Draws, with 5 additional chances to win $25,000 a year for life or lump sum cash prize of $500,000 on each draw date. All DAILY GRAND plays issued for either date have a chance to win the top prize of $1,000 a day for life, the second prize of $25,000 a year for life, and the 5 additional Bonus Draws of $25,000 a year for life. Winners of the Bonus Draw have the option to choose the annuity payment of $25,000 a year for life, or a $500,000 lump sum cash payment. 

2. HOW CAN I ENTER THE DAILY GRAND BONUS DRAW?

Every play issued for the September 17 and September 20, 2018 DAILY GRAND draws is entered into the Bonus Draws for 5 additional chances to win $25,000 a year for life. 

3. ARE THERE ADDITIONAL BONUS DRAW NUMBERS ON MY TICKET?

There are no additional Bonus Draw numbers on your ticket. Your main selection applies to all prizes, including the 5 additional Bonus Draws. In order to win a Bonus Draw prize, the five main numbers within your regular selection must match exactly the five numbers drawn in the Bonus Draw.

4. IS THERE ANY ADDITIONAL COST TO PLAY THE DAILY GRAND BONUS DRAW?

There is no additional cost to play the DAILY GRAND Bonus Draws. Every play issued for the September 17 and September 20, 2018 DAILY GRAND draws are entered into the 5 additional Bonus Draws for $25,000 a year for life. 

5. HOW DO YOU WIN A BONUS DRAW PRIZE?

To win a Bonus Draw prize, the five main numbers of your selection must match exactly the five numbers drawn in the Bonus Draw. 

6. WILL A GRAND NUMBER BE DRAWN IN THE BONUS DRAW?

No, a Grand Number will not be drawn in the Bonus Draws. A player only needs to match the five main numbers on their ticket to the five main numbers drawn for the Bonus Draw prize. 

7. WHAT ARE THE ODDS OF WINNING ONE OF THE BONUS DRAWS?

The odds for winning any one of the Bonus Draws is 1 in 1,906,884. 

8. WHY ARE THE ODDS DIFFERENT FOR WINNING THE $25,000 A YEAR FOR LIFE ON A REGULAR DRAW VERSUS WINNING THE SAME PRIZE ON ONE OF THE BONUS DRAWS?

The odds for winning any one of the Bonus Draws is 1 in 1,906,884. The odds of winning the second prize of $25,000 a year for life in the main draw is 1 in 2,224,698.

The odds are different because the second prize for the main draw is won by having 5 out of 5 main numbers, without having the Grand Number. For the Bonus Draw, there is no Grand Number drawn, so the odds of winning are based on the 5 numbers, not 6 as in the main draw.

9. CAN YOU GUARANTEE THAT THE ADDITIONAL BONUS DRAW PRIZES WILL BE AWARDED?

The Bonus Draws are not guaranteed prizes and therefore may not all be won. Any Bonus prize not won will be held for a future Bonus Draw promotion. 

10. WHY AREN’T THESE DRAWS GUARANTEED?

Decisions regarding special promotional draws for the DAILY GRAND game are made collectively by all of the provincial lottery jurisdictions. DAILY GRAND does not offer guaranteed prizes as part of its existing prize structure and in order to do offer bonus prizes that are guaranteed, changes to the various lottery systems would be required.

11. WHERE DOES THE FUNDING FOR THE BONUS DRAW PRIZES COME FROM?

Funding for the Bonus Draw Prizes comes from the DAILY GRAND prize fund, which is 49 per cent of DAILY GRAND sales.

12. IS IT POSSIBLE FOR THE SAME SELECTION TO BE DRAWN FOR MORE THAN ONE OF THE 10 BONUS DRAWS?

Yes, it is possible for the same selection to be drawn for more than one of the Bonus Draws as winning selections are not removed from subsequent draws. 

13. WHAT HAPPENS IF A WINNING TICKET IS HELD BY MORE THAN ONE INDIVIDUAL, THERE IS MORE THAN ONE WINNING TICKET, OR IF MORE THAN ONE WINNING BONUS SELECTION APPEARS ON ONE OR MORE OF THE WINNING TICKETS?

The Bonus Draw prize for each winning bonus selection on a winning ticket will be calculated by dividing the lump sum cash payment of $500,000 by the total number of times a winning bonus selection appears on winning tickets.

14. HOW LONG DO DAILY GRAND BONUS DRAW WINNERS HAVE TO CLAIM THE PRIZE?

As with all prizes won on DAILY GRAND, winners of a Bonus Draw have one year from the draw date to claim their prize.

15. WHEN WILL THE DAILY GRAND BONUS DRAW RESULTS BE AVAILABLE?
