And one ticket holder -- E-103466 -- has received an early present: a full set of Saskatchewan Western Hockey League jerseys.
The winner of the early bird draw on Saturday afternoon won the prize, which includes a jersey from each of the five teams in the province -- the Moose Jaw Warriors, Prince Albert Raiders, Swift Current Broncos, Regina Pats and Saskatoon Blades.
The lottery itself officially crossed the $220,000 mark on Saturday, meaning the winner of the draw will receive over $110,000 -- and there’s still a month to go before the draw is made. Great Western Brewing donated $75,000 to get things off to a good start.
The other half of the draw proceeds will be split equally among the the five WHL Saskatchewan teams to support their education funds
Tickets will be available for sale online through each team’s website, along with WHL.ca.
Prices are as follows:
• 1 ticket for $20
• 5 tickets for $50
• 20 tickets for $100
• 150 tickets for $500
• 500 tickets for $1000
