Dream Lottery sold out

London, Ont. - Dream Lottery sold out yesterday, prior to the midnight Bonus Draw sale's deadline and well before the December 12 final deadline. All ticket sales, including the 50/50 are now closed. This is the fourth sell out in the last five editions of the lottery and the tenth since the lottery's inception in 1996. The lottery's Money & Memories Calendar had already sold out. The 50/50 once again topped $1 million (winner takes half).

The prize homes that got everyone dreaming and fueled the hot ticket sales pace, will be open today, but will be closed tomorrow and will not reopen. Closing the homes helps maximize the proceeds going to the beneficiary hospital foundations. Prior to this spring, the lottery had raised almost $37 million (net) for the region hospitals in London. This draw will add to that total.

Since the sell out occurred by the Bonus Draw sales deadline, the draw date will be moved up in accordance with the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario (AGCO) approved rules. Winners of the grand prize and 50/50 will be announced on December 5. Lottery details, including prizes, Dream home galleries, and contest rules can be found at www.dreamitwinit.ca
