Step out of the daily grind and say hello to DAILY GRAND — BCLC’s new national lottery game, where you have a chance to win $1,000 a day for the rest of your life.

Imagine this: $1,000 a day for the rest of your life. It’s a life-changing prize. But would it really change you? Or would it simply allow the person you already are to leave behind the daily grind and explore your passions?

Maybe you identify with one of our DAILY GRAND personalities. Inspired by B.C. residents, here are a few ideas of how each might spend their time if they could count on a grand a day.

 

The Shopper

No matter how diverse the options are for spending a grand a day, it’s safe to say a shopping spree — even a modest one — is on many people’s bucket list. If you’re a lover of fine materials, luxe fabrics, expertly tailored garments, and shoes (of course), now there’s no need to hold back. Let loose on all your fashionista fantasies — they could become reality as the winner of DAILY GRAND.

 

The Hobbyist

So you’ve been dying to try your hand at molecular gastronomy? That sous-vide cooker and liquid nitrogen tank are now within reach. Always had a fascination with exotic orchids? Build a backyard greenhouse and import rare species to nurture and tend to. Want to take a pottery, watercolour or mixed media art class? Find your artistic style with the DAILY GRAND. Fitness buff? Hire a personal trainer, nutritionist and massage therapist and get in the best shape of your life.

 

The Adventurer

You’re fascinated by other cultures, a thrill-seeker or a language enthusiast. No corner of the world is too remote. Consider a week-long stay at a luxury private residence in sultry Ibiza, a Sherpa-led tour through the Himalayas, a Tanzanian safari gazing over the Serengeti, or a guided kayak trip around Haida Gwaii, complete with gourmet campfire meals. With DAILY GRAND, you can be a citizen of the world.  

 

The Entrepreneur

Maybe you’re not quite ready to give up that daily grind — work is your passion. With the DAILY GRAND you can follow your business dreams, whether it’s starting your own company or funding someone else’s. Open the bakery you’ve wanted since you were a kid, start a video-game company, put an offer on that hobby farm, or invest in a promising tech start-up. You’ve got the drive. Now you have the funding, too.

 

The Relaxer

You’ve been waiting your whole working life for this: more than just a weekend off every five days. It’s time to get pampered. Start with a full day of spa treatments at the Willow Stream Spa in Vancouver’s Fairmont Pacific Rim and finish the experience with champagne in their stunning lobby bar. While you’re there, book a room and enjoy succulent sushi from the award-winning Oru restaurant’s room service offerings. You deserve it. And the best part? You can repeat the experience at any spa you desire.

 

The Foodie

There may be a three-month-long wait list at Copenhagen’s Noma, but with $1,000 a day for the rest of your life, you can afford to be patient. A once-in-a-lifetime dining experience now awaits you at restaurants like Newfoundland’s Fogo Island Inn or Italy’s Osteria Francescana, which is currently considered the world’s best. Hidden away in the back streets of Modena, it will make you and a special guest to feel like royalty. Of course, you could always just hire a personal chef...

 

The Volunteer

You’ve always said you would give most of the money away if you won the lottery. Just as the winnings from DAILY GRAND could be your source of income indefinitely, a university endowment, scholarship, or new hospital wing can give back to the community for a lifetime. The tricky part will be narrowing down your choices. But, hey, you can always donate your time too. Add philanthropist to your inspiring and generous personality traits, with DAILY GRAND.
