Photos: Burnaby suite — part of $2.9M prize pack — up for grabs in 2023 Millionaire Lottery

The winner of the Metrotown prize home, still under construction, will also receive $1.3 million in cash, $50,000 to spend on furnishings and a Tesla.

Imagine waking up in a new home from high above Metrotown with top-of-line furnishings, cash money to spend for your morning Starbucks coffee and a Tesla waiting for you in the parking garage?

If this is a dream of yours, it may soon become a reality.

The VGH and UBC Hospital Foundation Millionaire Lottery, which recently unveiled the 10 prize packs for its 2023 draw, includes an apartment in a 48-storey high-rise in Burnaby as part of a larger winner's purse worth more than $2.9 million.

The 828 sq. ft. suite, located at 3906–6511 Sussex Ave. and still under construction, has two bedrooms and two bathrooms, plus a 324 sq. ft. deck.

But, in addition to the new home, the winner is also set to receive $1.3 million in cash, $50,000 in cash for furnishings, a 2023 Tesla Model X and a $70,000 gift card for Travel Best Bets.

All proceeds for tickets for the 2023 Millionaire Lottery are earmarked for specialized adult healthcare at Vancouver General Hospital (VGH), UBC Hospital and GF Strong Rehab Centre.

"From point-of-care ultrasounds to mobile x-ray machines; from research in ovarian cancer to healthy aging and addiction medicine research, lottery proceeds are providing the best tools to skilled physicians and surgeons, as well as advancing medical care and knowledge in our province," said Angela Chapman, president and CEO of the VGH and UBC Hospital Foundation.

"The Millionaire Lottery supports life-saving care at British Columbia’s largest hospital and helps our doctors, nurses, staff, health care workers, and all the patients who visit VGH every day," added lottery spokesperson Todd Talbot.

"The simple truth is, if you are seriously ill or injured, VGH and UBC hospitals are your best chance. There are few illnesses or injuries these medical teams cannot treat, no matter how complex or rare."

Interested lottery players aged 19 and older can buy a ticket for the Burnaby prize pack before midnight on Jan. 11, 2024, but tickets could be sold out before that deadline.

The winner can either choose the grand prize home or $2.7 million in tax-free cash.

There's also a 50/50 PLUS lottery with a maximum payout of $1.2 million depending on how many tickets are sold.
