“The Choices Lottery supports research that leads to innovative discoveries and treatments, which in turn directly helps experts at BC Children’s Hospital advance their quest to conquer childhood illness,” a news release states.

“Here, hundreds of researchers work to push the boundaries of what’s possible. Lottery funds can help accelerate the pace of turning discoveries into life-saving treatments – ultimately helping more kids get back to being kids.”

In total, the lottery features more than 3,200 prizes worth more than $3.9 million, including luxury homes, vacations, and vehicles.

Tickets for the grand prize, in which 315,000 tickets are printed, cost $100 for a pack of three, $175 for a pack of six, $250 for a pack of nine and $500 for a pack of 20.

Tickets for the 50/50 Plus Lottery, for which 482,000 are available for sale, cost $15 for two, $30 for six and $60 for 16.

The Daily Cash Plus Game, which features 102 prizes and 180,000 total tickets, cost $25 for two and $50 for six.

“During these uncertain times, the money raised through the Choices Lottery is more important than ever. These funds go towards groundbreaking research and discovering new treatments for sick and injured children across B.C. and the Yukon,” said Teri Nicholas, president and CEO of BC Children’s Hospital Foundation, in a news release.
