How would you spend $1,000 a day for the rest of your life?

Imagine you had an extra $1,000 every day for the rest of your life. How would you spend it? Would you quit your job and travel the world? Would you pay off your family’s debts? Would you donate to your favourite charities on the regular? $1,000 a day can add up pretty quickly, and with all of this bonus cash, there are bound to be some cool and interesting ways to spend it!

Launching this month is a new national lottery game, called DAILY GRAND, where players have the opportunity to win $1,000 a day for the rest of their lives. With so much possibility on the horizon, we just had to ask friends, family, and strangers living in Kelowna: How would you spend $1,000 a day for the rest of your life?

“I would use the bonus money to make my community better. The streets of Kelowna are full of people who could use some help. I would put that extra $1,000 a day into helping make Kelowna better for everyone.” - Nikki, 47

“I would use half of my daily $1,000 to travel the world, see new places and try new things. The other half? I would just give it away! Share the wealth!” - Jim, 54

“I would visit Disneyland any day, any time!” - Sam, 24

“With an extra $1,000 a day I would save it up and buy a private jet. That way I could go anywhere in the world whenever I wanted.” - Katie, 32

“That’s easy - I would travel the world. I would start in Europe I think, and then make my way to as many countries as possible.” - Jackson, 27

“I would eat fancy meals all the time! I could eat a five course meal every single day. No more cheap cheeseburgers for me.” - Andrea, 24

“Four out of seven days a week I would put the money into a retirement savings plan, and the other three days I would give the money to my kids. Maybe I would save a bit of that money to take a vacation somewhere warm.” - Karen, 47

With an extra $1,000 a day in your bank account, the world opens up and anything is possible. This may sound like a dream, but with a little luck, it could be your reality.

DAILY GRAND is a new national lottery game that is unique compared to existing games like Lotto 6/49 and LOTTO MAX, as it offers an annuity prize that lasts the entire lifetime of the winner.

With draws on Monday’s and Thursday’s, one ticket is $3. If you match all five Main Numbers and the ‘Grand Number,’ you will win the top prize of a $1,000 every single day, for the rest of your life.

So tell us: How would you spend $1,000 a day for the rest of your life?
