Peace Arch News – WinFall lottery loses $730,000

The WinFall Lottery wound up losing money this year – but not as much as was earlier feared.

That’s the message from Peace Arch Hospital and Community Health Foundation executive director Jackie Smith, who said it now appears the lottery lost some $730,000, much less than predicted when the foundation went public with an appeal for ticket buyers.

“It’s not good, but it could have been a lot worse,” she said.

In a press conference one week before the Oct. 19 draw day, Smith revealed ticket sales were running at only 35 per cent, though she didn’t specify expected loss.
