This year, the STARS Lottery features more than 2,200 prizes that are worth more than $4 million. The catalogue includes two grand prize show homes: one in Regina and a home in Saskatoon. The one in Saskatoon is valued at more than $1.4 million and the Regina home at $1.3 million.
In 2021, STARS Air Ambulance flew 1075 missions across Saskatchewan. While the service receives funding from the provincial government, they still need to raise roughly $10.5 million each year to keep the helicopters in the air. The largest source of that funding comes through the annual STARS Lottery.
“We say the STARS lottery is the lottery on a mission,” explained Mark Oddan, Senior Communications Officer with STARS. “When you support the lottery, you really are supporting those missions that happen 24/7, 365 across Saskatchewan.”
Oddan added, “It goes to support our operations with things like ensuring we have faster response times, cutting edge technology for our crews, and continuous training for them.”
The final ticket deadline for the main draws, as well as the 50/50, is Thursday, July 14th.
