    Nice. You gots to be creative and develop strategies.

    Some may just spend the minimum and win but it seems those who spend a bit more have better odds.

    Many are motivated by a small prize in that they have multiplied their investment, and this does seem to have a bit more than the games where everyone is focused on the jackpots.

    This Daily Grand prize structure is a brilliant money maker for the lottery corporation compared to 6/49 and Lotto Max.
    Think about this. If 6/49 and Lotto Max are not won on any given draw, they bump up the prize money for the following draw. And this continues until it's won. Some of the prizes get huge.
    For the Daily Grand, if there's no grand prize winner, the grand prize stays the same. The grand prize never gets bigger. Think about how much extra money they get to keep in their coffers because of this approach.
    Granted it's still relatively new and not as popular as the well established games, so the participation isn't as high yet, but if it takes off for them, what a cash cow it will be.

    I've been told that there's no taxes but not sure. Just what I heard.
    You can also get 1,000 a day or one huge lump sum!!

    I've kinda given up on daily grand and more into 649 and lottomax now!

    I believe the Daily Grand's lump-sum amount is roughly $7,000,000.

    Bye the way, I won $50 from Wednesday night's Ontario 49 lottery.

    p.s. No taxes on lottery winnings in Canada.

    So life is considered about 20 years? Rip off

    5. IS THERE AN OPTION FOR A SINGLE CASH PAYMENT INSTEAD OF AN ANNUITY?
    Yes. For the top prize, instead of an annuity payment, the winner may choose a single lump sum total of $7 million. For the second prize of $25,000 a year for life, the winner may choose a single lump sum total of $500,000.


    Frank, it depends how old you are, whether you're a thrill-seeker he he, and how healthy. Would I take my chances? Not if I was middle-aged. You can get sick or get run over.

    Not rip off, just math. the 7 mill is the present value of the total annuity payment with time = infinity. It is therefore the same amount.
    7 mill is still enough either way.
    Things you need to consider. 1) if the OLG ever discontinues/goes bankrupt. 2) in the future if the federal government decides it needs additional revenue and decides to tax lottery winnings. Taking a lump sum payment may be wise. But if you have a trusted younger family member or friend, you could give the ticket to them, and work out some sort of payment with them on the down-low.

    I didn't think of the investment potential. Good point.

    18. HOW LONG DO THE ANNUITY PAYMENTS LAST ON THE TOP TWO PRIZE CATEGORIES?
    The annuity prizes on DAILY GRAND are intended as true “for life” prizes, lasting for the entire life of the winner. There is no set maximum on the length of the payments.

    yeah there is an end. When you end the money ends.

    I'll try it at least once but not make habit of it though.

    A more interesting game would have been if a guaranteed winner must be chosen from all the combinations played for that draw.

    You're not gonna see that anytime soon.

    Scratch tickets are guaranteed but bummer is OLG sells the higher prized games all over Canada.

    In the Ontario only lotteries, winning tickets seem to be sold outside of the Toronto city limits while most of the take is from sales within Toronto.
    I hope you're wrong, but I appreciate your observations.

    Scratch tickets have guaranteed winners and each tick can be tracked from leaving OLG to wherever they end up.
    If OLG wanted to take it upon themselves to be income redistributors,directly placing winner sin smaller towns with less sales than say Toronto...
    it could very well be done.
    Though we don't see it, I'm sure there are auditors and controls every step of the way for each game though.
    I still don't like sharing OLG scratch ticket offerings all over Canada especially when you see more winners everywhereelse except Ontario.
    we here in Ontario don't get to share in BC and Quebec specific scratch offerings.
    It's like many of the big prizes in 649 and lottomax seem to be won in Quebec.
    Just random chance I suppose.
    It does seem that way. Once again, I hope you're wrong.

    BTW, a big winning ticket was sold in Woodbridge, Ontario but nobody has yet claimed the prize. I think it was for $30 million or so. (Wasn't me lol).

    I won $50 in a $10 scratch card the other day (the XXX yellow coloured ones).
